It may slow me down, but it shall not stop me. And thanks to the help of Mighty Joe I'm very pleased with how the final version of my den scene came out. There were sacrifices though.

It's not the end of the world, but it's surley an obstacle to overcome for me. Anyways, happy St. Paddy's day all.
