What a funny living situation, I love that they drafted you in as a duct tape black smith. Really funny being a normal guy and being dubbed: "the good with building stuff guy". hey some of us are just creative and skilled and we can apply that to whatever. you sound like your a really funny person. i will try stuffing it with news paper for sure. it's good to get some tips from an ol' weapon maker haha.
good call on sharing the wizard beards and star hats. haha yeah good forbid one cast circle of protection: paintballs.
