Early on in "The Hobbit", Tolkien briefly mentions that, before she married Bungo Baggins, Bilbo's mother Belladonna Took would go on wild adventures with her two "remarkable" sisters.

I think that would be a prequel I'd be interested in seeing.

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.

Now if I can just figure out how to get the symbol fonts in google docs.

session 1 BW went pretty well last night, but we ran out of time and one of the players didn't get a scene and I feel kinda bad about it.

Has anyone done a Sci Fi hack of BW? Would anyone be interested in such a thing? It feels like a lot of work, but it also feels like it could work.

This is just a little noise about how cool I think @stras is: so cool.

@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 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.

I think I have a bad habit of watching a game on twitch, and then really wanting to play that game. but not so much the system as that specific game, which basically just sets me up for disappointment wheb I set up my own group.

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.

I enjoy being a , but I won't have game time until the new year, most likely. :(

I've been looking around for a Burning Wheel collection of NPC stat blocks. Also considering just burning a pile of my own for rando village folk, like blacksmith, tavern keeper, village gossip, midwife, etc.

And now the Mechanic is starting a long term project to invent a personal teleporter.

My Scum and Villainy crew just broke into a High Security Research station for the Guild of Engineers, and got out. Scott free. 0 heat. So many sixes were rolled. tier 1 vs tier 5 and they took candy from a baby.
