Tonight's plan was to run the Tank Robbery hack of Honey Heist. But there were two problems: I had less copies of Tank robbery printed than I thought, and I realized Tank Robbery wasn't really set up for the tone I was after. I thought about reverting to regular Honey Heist, but still wanted the tank-stealing action. So I did an in-pencil mashup of the Bears and Spec-ops skills, and also the hats. Tone + theme achieved! Good fun had by all.

Finally got to run our weekly session again, after being forced to postpone the last two weeks. It's good to be back.

Was just reminded of a post from 2015:
""A quick note to players: When you don't show up, your GM is bored and irritated. This leads to creativity.
Good luck next session."

I woke today thinking about journaling games.
(a thread)
They're surging you know. They're surging like storygames surged in the late 2000s. They're huge. @jeeyonshim's Connected Path games are pervasive social media events. @TimHutchingsFTW's Thousand Year Old Vampire won...

@sage Are you still keeping an eye on this instance? It sounds like there may be some pending actions in the moderation queue.

Today's session ended with a ranged attack vs a boss monster, potential kill shot with hilarious outcome (llama polymorph). Rolled with advantage, and all 3d6 came up as 1's. There were tears of laughter and a llama paladin.

Today is a great day to pickup some s on

There's a Bundle of Holding for Fate Core up with a bunch of Fate stuff for your gaming and reading pleasure:

I was going to start writing some custom moves for the major artifacts the players are finding, but decided instead to tie them each to a specific compendium class. Time = saved.

Had another great session of today.
Departing player's character successfully killed.
By a swarm of undead rats.
That he was responsible for creating.

I'll be amazed if my players don't end up destroying this village next session.

The /#TTRPG memes want you to believe that "Crying is a free action", but that's bullshit. Shedding a tear? Maybe. But crying properly? That's a *ritual*.

Also from today's session, during their recap one of them mistakenly said the undead they'd been seeing in the woods were undead centaurs, and instead of correcting them, I corrected my monster stat notes.

Said the Barbarian Asheema to the Extra (temp player) at the end of today's session: "I saw you take brain damage. You are now one of us."
