Strong showing from the "let's make things worse" contingent over the last few years. Really on a hot streak.

I'm opposed, of course, I'm on team "let's make things better."

I'm going to take the complete silence in response to my last post to mean that no, nobody knows of such a thing. I knew it was kind of a pipe dream.

transphobia, us politics, abortion, suicide mentioned 

Gentle reminder that abortion access is DEFINITELY an LGBTQ+ issue. This moment has a lot of cis-het female voices, and it should, but the immediate ramifications are going to hit anyone with a uterus -- lesbian and bi cis women, trans men, nonbinary people.

It's also going to affect all femme people, with and without uteruses. It will change the way they are treated and looked at by others, consciously or subconsciously.

That is part of the point of this judicial regression.

Include the concerns of all trans and nonbinary people in your activism for abortion rights, please. Especially those of pre-transition trans men. This group needs to be vocally and specifically included in calls for activism.

Forcing those guys to go through with pregnancies isn't just cruel, it's going to be an actual suicide trigger for some. Believe me.

They are more at risk from this legislation than the average person is. And they will have exponentially fewer resources, and exponentially fewer people to help them -- as usual.

Boosts appreciated.

culture war nonsense 

Well, another megadungeon by Greg Gillespie is out, and I've been intrigued by his prior work, but this quote of his from the KS campaign is why I'll never spend a single $ on his stuff:

"If you enjoy an adventure steeped in the history and lore of the game, medieval fantasy, dwarves, and Anglo-Saxon history - and devoid of woke nonsense - this will be right up your alley."

I really hate how many terrible humans are involved in the field.

I have a question. I'm not looking for likes/favorites -- I'm looking for responses, please.

Does anyone know of any attempt to, or has anyone made an attempt to, codify the spells in D&D (the general spell lists) into Rolemaster-style sets of spell lists? They'd probably look exactly like Domain spell lists, reading from levels 0-9. I'm looking to see if someone has done the work already.

@PaulCzege Time to impeach the perjurous traitors. All six of the damned liars.

Since Mastodon has no equivalent of the Circles of Google+, we need other methods of finding like-minded people.

RT @aaronsama1313
@GailSimone To be fair, they’re enacting extremist rulings that Americans don’t want so much that they were compelled to lie under oath, and perjure themselves, saying that they wouldn’t vote as they just did.

I'm mad as the Ninth Circle of Hell and I'm not gonna fucking take it anymore. ... This may end up getting me in serious trouble.

Existing -- which implies "putting pressure on everything in it to adapt to it, and forcibly changing things which do not change on their own." It also responds to changes brought about my things within it. I'm not sure what exactly you're looking for?

@dysonlogos I immediately flashed back to:

"Your soul is an appalling dump heap overflowing with the most disgraceful assortment of deplorable rubbish imaginable, mangled up in tangled up knots!"

Worst. Effluent. Imaginable.

Time to Draw the Dungeons!

I stream my cartography most Tue / Thu / Sat from 1-4 pm Eastern.

We need to finish off this small dungeon (with TIE fighter room!) before we move on to something new. Please join me, I love the company!

Quick, before r/rpg Redditors will downvote it and delete into oblivion!

Summing up misconceptions about what PbtA really is finally reached Reddit:

@nickwedig This may sound facile, but... what if you came up with something fun to do with the undistributed cards?

This is now playable, fun, and interesting, so: I give you the 1.0 of Backscore, a fairly decently tested, print-and-play sports board game.

My big barrier to creativity is feeling that it's pointless since it's so hard to get traction. The world feels hostile (maybe reality, maybe cognitive distortion, IDK) so it's like everything I want to say is pre-rejected or ignored, so I end up in the steady state of not creating. The indie TTRPG design scene has some solutions for this inside of games, eg "IIEE with teeth", but at the meta level it's the same social media free-for-all as everything else, which I struggle with.
