Well, that took way longer than it should have but I updated my Lasers & Feelings hack about monkeys who find themselves (sort of) in control of a spaceship. Now it has epub and kindle versions!
The text is slightly altered, but not significantly enough to affect gameplay. I'll update the PDF to match when I can stand to look at this monitor for another zillion hours.
I hate to interrupt your doomscrolling, but I must. The world must know about this drawing I found while spacing out and clicking links. I present to you: the Derpiest Wolf.

Do any #ttrpg folks know of a GMless game where the players each play a PC like normal, but also play a faction that their PC *isn't* part of, where the factions can have opposing goals or be actively hostile to the PCs?
To clarify, I mean over a large scale and a long time. Like, in order to live in the desert, people and animals have to change their behavior and traits in certain ways. What is the desert doing?

Never fails to amuse me:
Fungus guy conquered, now a dirt bike LARPer gang appears! They're armed with wooden swords and armored with football gear, have saddles on their dirt bikes, and follow a mysterious prophet queen, so this is obviously going to go well.
So far we've all tried to fight Fungus Guy, with a knife, a pistol, a stick, and a lightning gun.
We have all failed.
The tree is pissed off at us, but we eventually got the kid now, only to be attacked by the fungus person who is the underground owner of these fingers:
The fight was ended by a tree grabbing the kid and dangling him in the air. The PCs are helpfully shouting advice.
One of the PCs is fighting a child over a stick.
The Spanish moss in Alternate Florida whispers. In Spanish, obviously, thus the name.
I just failed a roll to talk to it.
