♲ @GauntletRPG@twitter.com: On the newest episode of @FarriersBellows, Zack and Diana claim the final rose with Kagematsu, a classic story game of romance, power imbalance, and gender. It’s also just really damn fun. Check out the episode here:

Biological determinism has been used for centuries as a weapon against women, in order to justify a second-class and oppressed status. How on Earth, then, are you going to pick up the weapon of biological determinism and use it against trans women, to 'liberate' yourself? It’s a reactionary tool.”

@turtlebird I'm there under an identifiable name. So far it looks promising. Refreshing even -- not the usual faces.

Holy shit you guys did you see that itch.io started a tabletop gaming forum? With specific subforums for indie RPGs like Apocalypse World and Belonging Outside Belonging? And has forum categories that look suspiciously like the Forge?

This is an interesting development


@mithriltabby Hahaha no! That's the link to my new chair. Oops.

If you're trying to figure out where to talk Diaspora with the G+ community evaporating, you could certainly do worse than the VSCA discord.


@linkskywalker And all of mine failed me today because one of my players is in Greece and they don't change time until the end of March.

@paulczege Yeah that's what I was thinking -- page flip as randomizer.

@paulczege I expect that in real use (certainly my use) they will often spin off a different idea, so maybe coverage isn't important.

@paulczege They are intended just as idea generators, to get you started on the underlying theme of a location. So you probably use one, chosen as-randomly-as-you-like-or-don't.

I've done a hundred and it feels like a lot but it also feels like there's pretty much zero coverage of the possibilities. Go to a thousand or talk process instead?

I just spent half an hour curating random nouns. Each one is something I feel could be the seed for a whole setting.
