Check out how @careforthebeast uses macros to do safety in Roll20. It's pretty great. And Google Translate does a pretty good job on Polish to English.
.@infinite_mao, @coilingoracle, and @Maharhar had me on their podcast to talk about the legacy of The Forge, but it's also something of a conversation about arts scenes, if you're interested in that kind of thing.
new episode of trying to be kind featuring special guest @PaulCzege!
Just over a week ago I sketched out a set of experimental design constraints for building RPGs entirely out of optional pieces, without any mechanical interlock between the pieces. @PaulCzege took up the challenge and as far as I know has produced the first #MOSAICStrict ruleset! https://twitter.com/PaulCzege/status/1366407111073099787
Did you see @fuseboy's #MOSAICStrict concept? Make self-contained mechanical subsystems that aren't too long, and groups can mix & match for a custom game experience.
I made one:
(And because it's self-contained, it's fully #OSR compatible.)
Not one woman suggested to this (so far?).

Huh. Infinite Past is the most interesting folded game I've done. I'm not sure I can top it. I'll need to think.
Gratitude: a horror game is a storytelling game about trying to please unknowable overlords in an attempt to escape a desolate place.
It's about stealing power you can't control and about learning how sacrifice affects you.
On my regular RPG shopping list is games I might play with my son, and that he might like, and that includes during Zine Quest. So I couldn't resist vis-a-visage (a 2 player, competetive, face swapping ttrpg) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/snaxwell/vis-a-visage-a-2-player-competetive-face-swapping-ttrpg?ref=thanks-tweet
If anyone wants to try alpha testing RPGHUD, a tool where you use OBS to roll RPG-style dice onto your video feed for playing RPGs via Zoom without a complicated VTT, the instructions are here: https://danmaruschak.github.io/RPGHUD/
