So after months of waffling and griping and never writing anything down, I have a rough outline for a game using the Genesys Dice as a core mechanic. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1XkfVcnr5H0YaLH-L4KvANzBMTWd72PFTT9ohnQg5dCw/edit?usp=sharing
Now if I can just figure out how to get the symbol fonts in google docs.

@stras May I ask what ever happened to Stardancers?
@johnharper So. Uhm. I've been using the really handy list of names in the back of BitD for my Scum and Villainy game for several weeks now. I was going to thank you for that, but only just now did I actually read the side bar and realize that it's a list of kickstarter backers. So thanks to your kickstarter backers, I guess?
I should be doing GM prep but instead I'm sitting here worrying. I have been helping high school students with math in the evenings here and there and I might have to tell someone's mom that they're too far behind for me to help. My lack of credentials is showing: things go pretty well when the kid is on board, but I don't know how to bring them around when they're so far behind they've mentally "checked out" of the subject matter.
In today's #ScumandVillainy game, we spent the entire session in free play acquiring the next score and planning it out. We ended on the opening scene after the engagement roll. I am so excited for next week.
#sixworddungeon Broken ringworld. Horrors, frozen in time.
Think of something suddenly while falling asleep. Pace around too energized with thinking about the idea that I never write anything down. Finally fall asleep, wake up thinking it was a dumb idea. Repeat again in 3 weeks.

Played: West End Star Wars! I was new to this whole RPG thing, so my friend Andy, the GM, gave me a premade. It was a generic Ghand, which I cleverly named Ghandy, pronounced like Candy. He died quickly, so I made a noghri named 'Il'ija'avey (A broken up "Little Ninja Davey" because naming things is hard.) We ended up hacking a variety of games out of that system.
Bought: D&D 3.5. I still don't know what happened to those books. They got lost in a move.
Run: Dark heresy

Scum & Villainy - My space opera game. Currently laying out the full text. It's not exciting to say 'looking forward to being done' but can't wait to have a complete thing (with art!).
Band of Blades - Black Company via Blades. This is what I'm super stoked about. Can't wait to get back to full-time design. Had a great Halloween playtest.
Atlas Reckoning - Giant mech smashing giant monsters. Also the messy lives of mech pilots. KS is on the horizon!
I enjoy being a #playtester, but I won't have game time until the new year, most likely. :(
