Five or So Questions on Over the Edge http://www.briecs.com/2018/08/five-or-so-questions-on-over-the-edge.html
I love Mastodon, but I am not sure about dice.camp being my main jam. I like RPGs and all but they're not the main focus of my life the way they are for some people. It seems weird to have my main Masto account be so niche. That said, I don't know what's a good alternative. I don't want to be yet one more user on mastodon.social, giving the lie to the concept of decentralization. And dice.camp *is* full of good people...
Got to play a game of #BladesInTheDark at GenCon. The same guy ran games for two groups and they couldn't have been more different: one crew were devious players in a game of gang warfare, and the other were cat burglars and a con man in a madcap heist movie. The first opened with a murder; no blood was ever drawn in the second.
RAINING DOWN from the VAULT of HEAVEN come words, staining with ink the upturned faces of all who look up in awe.
They tell all who can read that the time has arrived: The BLOODY-HANDED NAME of BRONZE Kickstarter is alive and it roams the world between heaven and the Waters of the Underworld!
I did not realize (or had forgotten) that Vim was originally written for the Amiga and distributed on a Fred Fish disk!!
Back from GenCon! Had fun

Whoa, Guido bailed on python. Burned out over the last language fight.
[python-committers] Transfer of power
I have a history of making accounts on Reddit with names taken from a random username generator and with no connection whatsoever to my real ID or even, mostly, to each other. Maybe that’s a good future strategy for other places.
Everything I do on “Zuckerbook” I feel like I’m being profiled and stalked. Which is accurate. I think I’d like to spend more time in places like this that aren’t enmeshed in evil. But if I’m to do so freely I shouldn’t make the connection to my IRL identity quite as obvious as using my real name as a username. So I want to find another handle. Thing is, it’s hard to pick a handle one likes and be guaranteed one will still like it in the future. I guess one can change multiple times....
Without cryptocurrencies, there would be no way to support Wikleaks, except perhaps suitcases full of rubles tossed over the outer wall of the Ecuadoran embassy
Geoguessr with a full room of friends and a big-screen monitor is pretty great. Though it can get a little crazy if you play by the "use any resources necessary, and do your best to get a perfect 5000 score" rules which we play by
This post is good.
On the Importance of Art in RPGs
I was frightfully proud of my hard work on The Mountain Witch back in 2010. I put a lot into that book design, and the game had a huge influence, from White Wolf’s trust mechanics to like half of indie RPGs until 2013.
Now it’s coming back into print!
