@thoughty there is nothing to be sorry for. It sucks that you struggle so much. Don't be too hard on yourself. You need a chance to heal. I hope things improve for you soon.
I'm not well.
I basically had to give up my leadership career because post-concussion & disability means i can't really teach, adding in queer+transness means no one wants to hire me, & my unwillingness to tolerate corruption & unethical behavior rules out other options.
I'm not really a game designer anymore either. It moved on without me, & because during the height of 2020 Pandemic I was struggling & couldn't communicate well, so work stopped.
The Howling Passages (named for the atonal howl of the winds blowing through these caves) have been used on-and-off by smugglers for years.
Someone else built the understructures, and there are no hints remaining today as to their purpose or builders.
#3dprinting is interesting, so much to learn. Twice the exact same model for my #5ParsecsFromHome and #ttrpg games, just different settings. It's really fiddly to find good values. But I wager once that's done it's going to be so much fun to print things. Now to learn how to best post process this PLA.
@darkade this looks amazing. I have a friend that swears on google sheets. The roller will be fantastic for him.
I got my printer all set up, leveled and did some test prints. This stuff is addictive! So much fun. #3dprinting
@thechaosgrenade @artikid Wait, there is a newsletter? NCO is a blast as is FU2 so I am all there for this. Sounds amazing.
@KiloGex Yea, there are many ways to do it. I really dig the FU method for quick hacking games, it's so easy to adapt. One of my players commented "It fixes Fate" and I tend to agree, it did for us.
While I wanted to get a Prusa MINI+, for safety reasons because of the kid I decided to get an enclosed one instead. Since the budget is still a maximum of 500€ the choice became the QIDI I-Mate S. It should allow me to test a wide variety of materials. Got an optional PEI plate because I found that’s very popular and seems best for adhesion and release. Will be here at the weekend. Curious how long it will take me to get a print going! #3dprinting #qidi #3dprintbeginner
@AudreyWinter I made my first unboxing video with them. I hope the mic is able to pick up my voice with the strange dialect. https://youtu.be/khZZ8R-bM-Y
Pondering dice resolution systems. One system I really like uses d6 dice pools where I have to match dice faces together. Say I roll 5 dice and get 2,2,3,3,4. I would have 2 matches or "successes". Bigger matches, bigger types of successes. Broken Compass uses this but I was wondering if anyone knows other systems, maybe with an open license, who do similar things? #ttrpg
