@dbisdorf I'm on Linux, so if a Linux build becomes available I'd be interested (though I'm on Ubuntu 14.04 and 18.04 at the moment)
@brightneedle Also looking forward to when someone discovers that Evil Hat publishes both board games, card games, and role playing games. (and yes, the both is intentional. ;) )

Also I like people but I'm bad at initiating contact, so feel free to randomly @ me if you need something or want to chat or whatever.
Life is hard, but we've got each other. ❤️
Dear Game Designers (especially Powered by the Apocalypse Designers)
Please put the name of your game on your playbooks / character sheets.
This may seem like needless branding but it'll help those of us who have a large directory of PDF files that have somehow separated your files from each other.
Even better: a filename convention like "your_awesome_game_....pdf" would be really helpful.
@paulczege the chickens seem to disapprove as well.
Anyone who says that GURPS is not dead should try selling it sometime.
@kensanata Oh it's not hard to see where Fate drew from. And even Fudge had Fudge Points. :)
@nickwedig I take it this critically acclaimed novel is not by Terry Pratchett?
@kensanata Even the additions folks have made are really interesting. It's like there's a fudamental core and everything neatly tacks on to that core (regardless of whether those rules are particularly neat themselves).
I've been re-reading through Fudge rules and I'm coming to realize that what I thought was a good system before is a great system. I like the way that it can scale rapidly from simulationist to rules-lite without really breaking any of its core rules.
It's also sparking my game designer brain. Love it when the neurons fire like that.
Re-reading through some of my Fudge books. For whatever reason they're starting to click more with me than before. I knew they were good before but now they are resonating with me. It's like I gave myself permission to go exploring again.

Honestly having any opinion about GURPS that isn't "this is the best system around but it has some flaws and here they are listed in chronological order of appearance" is probably enough to get me flamed off of the internet.
Fate Accessibility Toolkit / GURPS post that I made Show more
Wondering if I should make a follow-up post about the Fate Accessibility Tooklit saying that Fudge has a "fault" called "Nerd" which is a social disadvantage, but that seems like the same folks that are getting on my case about my comments on the disadvantages system in GURPS would really flip their proverbial kettles.

"Craig Maloney, sucking the fun out of RPGs in the name of inclusivity by Virtue Signalling....."
Yep, and like a goblin I sneak into your gaming room and inhale that sweet sweet fun from your books and exhale nothing but sadness and misery.
