Thank you toi @olde_fortran and @blinks for bringing the camp of dice back online. We really appreciate it!

(Though it doesn't help that I've been stuffing the "View from the Pelgrane's Nest" RSS feeds into my read and review folder of doom / shame)

Like finding out that Hideous Creatures from Pelgrane Press is released and in the wild.

I really miss G+. I felt like I had my finger on the pulse of RPG games. Now I feel like I'm barely even seeing the smoke from the campfires of other designers.

Saw β€œFrom Gloom to Gratitude” in my RSS feed and thought "Oh no, not another β€˜Gloom’ game.

It’s just an NPR article about finding joy.

I think games have really corrupted me.

It's always surprised me that you (or, at least, I) don't hear more people mentioning Sarah Newton Maybe people sing her praises in places I don't frequent. I mean, they must. Her work has won Ennies, after all. But her name isn't dropped in conversations as often as I'd expect. (Can you, for example, name her Ennie-winning game?)

Her Monsters & Magic is still unique among retro-clones, in that it is the only one that immediately motivated me to want to play it.

And, looking at her list of credits now, I hadn't realized she had a hand in a bunch of titles I recognize.

I'm just going to leave this here for y'all:

"Famous DJ Squads come to compete for the title of the Planet’s Next DJ Superstars. To create their sounds and effects DJs wear Shells: cybernetically enhanced bodies that they can switch out and customize to create fully integrated multi-sensual experiences. Til Dawnis of course broadcast live for the most ultimate real drama possible. (cont)

As a game maker one thing I try to be aware of is the landscape of game genres. I've learned a lot by watching my seven-year-old son roam YouTube watching game play-throughs. There's genres of video games you wouldn't believe.

An RPG game where the players float their actions in bottles down the river.
