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.

@philviverito Nice and compact. It wouldn't work for me, but to each their own.

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 Itch.io

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.
✨Necromancy!✨

@PierreM @PaulCzege I've encountered tables like this, and I love the concept, but I've yet to put them to use. They're great for encounters as well, getting more difficult/dangerous/whatever as you progress.

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."
