Question: What is the best place to run play by forum/play by post genre these days? Thinking it is time to start DMing again but don't have a consistent enough schedule for a third weekly game.

Things I appreciate: Built in die roller, map support.

I wonder if there's an affordable tablet that can display PDFs well, mostly for reference at the table and reading in bed. From what I gather, the Kindle Paperwhite is awkward for PDF files, and a lot of cheaper tablets are fairly small and/or low res - I have no idea if I could read well on a 7 inch screen.

It feels weird to see Steve Jackson Games having a sale on DTRPG. I thought they had Warehouse 23 for that?

(green "Who knew?" set plus a green d14) have arrived. Now to get into a emulator and run a funnel. Somehow it feels like funnels should be particularly suitable for play, given that every player is already expected to run a small party of their own. Hopefully I'll find out soon!

Broke down and ordered the softcover version of despite having no group to play with or fancy dice (yet). Just wanted something to leaf through in bed, and needed something to add for free shipping. Gotta spend money to save money, right? Now, about those dice...

Inspired by the cyberwitch @kiramagrann I'm introducing a May I Ask You An RPG Question? Q&A kind of dealio, hashtag and answer every even day. :)

Kira's hashtag was SO GOOD I just want to keep the chat going. go check out that hashtag, join me in this one, and check out Kira on

So not that I am going to go back to it any time soon but I just fell down a Skyrim mod browsing rabbit hole and found THE objectively best mod:

Thanks to @gamehawk's post here I found some nice links on diceware and passphrases:

- EFF's dice passphrases page is great and clear:

Two small and easy tasks that you can do right now. If everyone did only one of them, it'd make everyone else's federated timelines and hashtag searches more excellent.

1) Go to the federated timeline right now, and scroll until you see something that makes you go "yay!" or "huh, interesting" or "cool". Boost it.

2) Post about something you love, post it ๐ŸŒโ€‹ Public, and tag it with three hashtags.
