The first edition of Diaspora is free on itch for . Let's make it all weekend.

There is nothing that says that I miss Google Plus more than realizing that FreeRPG day is on the 15th and I’m just finding out about it.

@matt I've only played online vs a handful of folks. I'm craigmaloney on there if there's any interest.

@matt Very cool.

Star Realms has been pretty much the only thing I've been playing, and that's been on the phone.

@paulbeakley Thank you for putting into words why I struggle with even getting started.

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

@awinter @JohnWSheldon I'll o my best to persist here. I'm not about to cede my social experiences to companies quite yet. 😁

@JohnWSheldon Yeah. I mean, I love and Mastodon, but I dipped on over to Twitter and noticed a vast leap in the number of conversations over there. Makes me wonder if I should restart my account over there. (This is not something I want to do. 😁 )

@wombat @nickwedig Forums may work for some people, but frankly I don't find them at all sticky. I find them noisy and confusing and way too much on topic.

Put a different way: I find game designers more interesting when they're talking about their other interests. That never seems to happen in a forum, where everything is hyper concentrated and gets the feeling of RPG-adjacent small talk.

@strypey Friendica and Diaspora seem to be the ones that they're finding. But it's not the platforms, it's the community. Lots of them moved back to Twitter because the community is there.

(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.
