Last night's RPG session included: tea and pastries in a charming interrogation room, disturbingly violent neural interface devices, Amazonian politics, Koschei the Deathless, and the ruins of an wizard's archive in a Martian biowarfare wasteland.

I've just added support for the Save the Universe RPG to the Foundry Virtual Tabletop! The plug-in includes character sheets, dice rolling prompts, and worldbuilding templates. foundryvtt.com/packages/SaveTh

There are nightly demonstrations here in Petoskey now. About a hundred of us attended tonight. Masks, social distancing, and saxophone player in place.

I'm setting up Save the Universe character sheets for the Foundry virtual tabletop software. Not yet ready to play, but soon, I hope.

Mosquito season has returned to Northern Michigan. Between this and the pandemic, I'll be spending the next six months in a hazmat suit.

In last night's Dungeon World session, our heroes traveled to the myth-haunted ruins of Earth on an archaeological expedition--which, naturally, ended with fighting off a horde of ancient organ-harvesting robots.

We started a science-fantasy Barsoom + Dying Earth + Conan game last night, using Dungeon World. Rescued a noble scion from shock-lizards. Fought off a resurrected forest-demon. Got paid. A promising start!

I've been toying with FoundryVTT (foundryvtt.com/), which is a self-hosted virtual gaming tabletop. Good news is that it's a one-time purchase, you can invite players to participate through their browsers, and the UI is nicer than Roll20. Bad news is that developing a rules plug-in is far from straightforward.

Seeking inspiration from a classic tonight.

Why is *Zoom* getting all the buzz? Why not Hangouts or Skype or Facetime? I'm not suggesting any of these solutions is superior, but if you'd asked me to predict which videoconferencing platform would take off during quarantine, Zoom would not have been one of my guesses.

These are the remaining century-old foundations of the Isaiah house, within a few paces of where we'll be building our new house. I am obliged to post this for the benefit of the occult investigators who will later investigate the consequences of our excavation.

This morning's sunrise. If you look closely, right in the middle, you'll see our dog Tessa, demonstrating social distancing.

Oh, I got to jump into a brief D&D5 session last night. I played a tiefling warlock, and she's great. She's an entertainer, and she has a flute and tells stories, and she serves the Dark Lord who rules from the Abyss!

Here we go...the first construction picture for our new house!

Exciting, right? Now that we know where the well is going, I'm sure the rest is downhill.
