Pinned toot

I'm setting a goal that next year I'll be able to run a livestream pledge drive event to fund my podcast for a year. I mean if PBS can do it...

I killed my Wordpress install. If I blog about gaming itll be over at goes strait to the podcast page at buzzsprout. You can still join the discord at to talk about the show or Fudge (Fate/Icons/etc)

You are not supporting freedom of speech by allowing hate speech in your venue; rather you willingly associate with and support hateful expression.

My doctor told me to get some bed rest, anybody know of a good 2hr stream featuring the most vanilla 5e game you've ever seen? Bonus points if they are all beardies desperately trying to be "the funny one ".

I wanted to get an ep out this week but it doesn't look like that's happening. My month long persistent cough turned out to be pneumonia. Sorry guys. Plus or Minus will return when I get better. If anyone has an idea for a guest ep nows the time.

If your doing anything with (, , Etc.) Or gear REACH OUT TO ME. I need to bank some podcasts and I want to plug all you beautiful people. If you are interested in Fudge... give the show a listen.

Please boost

Started out with a solo without because I didn't see value in it, now I see value in being able to boost and Fudge-based stuff but cant find four-ish who can play after 10 pm PST on fridays or Saturdays. Such is life.

Gatekeeping is bad. But please take a deep breath and repeat after me “Pointing out category errors is not gatekeeping!” Stop it with the knee jerk reactions and read what people have actually said.

So 2019 has come to an end. Here's a few numbers for you from One Shot Saturday.

Here's looking forward to more gaming in 2020

Just saw that Robin Williams was a fan... WHY WASN'T THERE A SR MOVIE IN HIS LIFETIME! We missed out on him playing a rigger doing zany voices for his drones!
