@PaulCzege I saw the headline and had wondered why the split (before getting distracted and working on something else).

Hey TTRPG folks - which independent publishers are able to do trad print runs these days? Just trying to check the lay of the land.

@LeviKornelsen something like Blood Bowl (or the...Malifaux version? Guild Ball or somesuch?) would suggest that there's definitely some potential there.

If theatre of the mind can handle a melee, I'm sure it can handle a sports match. I don't think *I* could GM a good TotM sports match, but that's due to my particular sports consumption (or lack thereof).

"[Uncle Jonathan] invented the Fuse Box Dwarf, a little man who popped out at you from behind the paint cans in the cellarway and screamed, "Dreeb! Dreeb! I am the Fuse Box Dwarf!" Lewis was not scared by the little man, and he felt that those who scream "Dreeb" are more to be pitied than censured."

Bleah, tried making two 3d prints tonight and both failed midway through. Waiting until next weekend to try the 12-hour print.

@e_eric @rayotus I mean, if you're fighting the devil and winning, one would presume that you've got a wide variety of potential endgames:

1) Win your soul back
2) Take over the devil's portfolio
3) Win your soul back, shank the devil and destroy hell
4) Win your soul back, shank the devil and convert hell into some nice cozy housing

@EvlynMoreau It means a *lot* to me that you 're continuing to work on the LotB NPCs even when in burnout. Thank you!!

But please focus on taking care of yourself & getting out of burnout. The NPCs can wait!

(Plus that gives me an excuse to not anxiously work on the full city writeup just yet ;) )

@chrismennell old prompt with a long backstory: "Communication is the eighth and greatest sin."

@rayotus @e_eric

Sell your soul to the devil, level up to demi-god status, fight the devil, win your soul back...

..sorry, what's the downside again?

@nickwedig Egg on my face for not seeing that and adding it earlier -- many thanks for the suggestion! The bundle's been updated.

@nickwedig Thank you for flagging that - much appreciated! Let me see if I can add that in...

@olamundo That's a fair point, and I don't want folks to put themselves in danger or compromise their electronic safety/personal info to contribute to this bundle.

But I don't have the mental bandwidth to switch to a new email address just yet, and given the nature of the project (and the urgent timeframe) I feel that speed is very relevant, and reliably getting communications on the issue as well.

If I do similar fundraising in the future, I'll try to shift locations off Gmail.


@juliana Sorry I spaced on including that in the first post!

All the donations will be going to the National Network of Abortion Funds (abortionfunds.org/).

Hey folks - in light of the SCOTUS leak, I'm putting together a DrivethruRPG bundle supporting reproductive rights.

Please drop me an email (allandaros @ gmail) if you want to contribute a product.

The intention is to go live this coming Monday, US Eastern time.


Someone on Twitter is organizing a TTRPG bundle with all proceeds going to reproductive rights. You can submit your game here:
