I forget who it was on :tootplanet: who was looking for Scrivener but couldn't afford it... you might be interested in AtomicScribbler, which has nearly the same features (a bit simpler, which can be a blessing!) and recently went entirely free: atomicscribbler.com/

I really wish I new whether that 2-star review on my game was for stylistic or content problems I could work on improving, or was because someone was expecting a Starfinder clone and got a super-light PBTA-ish game instead.

Do you know someone (or are you someone) who does book cover illustrations? Send me your links, please...I'm shopping for a cover for a fantasy fiction novel.

was tearing my hair out yesterday for HOURS trying to diagnose a programming bug last evening. i went to sleep, woke up, had a cup of coffee, looked at it for literally 5 minutes, and fixed it immediately

if youre a newbie programmer, the best advice i can give you is just... go the fuck to sleep honestly

Experimenting with Grav (getgrav.org/) for my new web site. I like it so far. It took up practically no space on my server and I didn't have to hook it up to a database.

Hey, random thought:

Anybody wanna be interviewed on my #FindFamiliar blog and talk about games-related stuff?

Like, I don't have a huge audience so it would basically just be for fun, but maybe somebody would like to share some thoughts?

Any interest in that? (Feel free to boost!)

It does not make any HTTP requests. Since LocalStorage is only local, you and your database need not be burdened with other people's opinions."

So...any reason not to just use your own name as a domain name for your online presence? The task of coming up with a clever domain name that I'm going to be happy with long-term seems daunting.

Today's book recommendation: City of Brass, by S. A. Chakraborty. I couldn't go to sleep last night until I finished it. My only regret is that the sequel isn't out yet.

My multi-user Cortex die roller is coming along nicely:

UI still needs some work and I have a bunch of behind-the-scenes stuff I want to clean up. And I should really get a domain name. But so far it's helped my online games immensely.

One of these days I'm going to write out a whole manifesto on how textile arts are the best way to understand roleplaying game design. Balancing shape and color and texture to make a coherent design, dissonance and harmony, scale and hue, piecing the shapes together, the meta-level design of the quilting pattern, contrast vs matching threads, etc etc.

I keep finding CCGs super stressful. I need a card game where all the cards just have nice messages on them, like "you're a great person" or "your efforts will be good enough" or "you're allowed to think good things about yourself."

Hey, can anybody recommend a professional layout person for an RPG rulebook? I've been trying to do it myself but I think I might be in over my head.

Experience with products published on DriveThruRPG (or similar) is a major plus.

Please boost!

I love Sentinels of the Multiverse, but I'm terrible at it. So my rare victory feels great.

Today's book recommendation: An Easy Death, by Charlaine Harris. A nice bit of magical wild-west alt-history.
