At the beginning of the 17th century, a book of black magic was published, attributed to the mythical Faust and known by the title Höllenzwang. The library in Weimar owned a manuscript of this text, which Goethe was aware of. This document, which is difficult to date, is written in cabalistic signs and, according to a German gloss, contains a series of magic spells for exorcists, which can be used in particular to call up the seven evil spirits.
Just listened to a podcast from 2014 with Sonja Lang, about Toki Pona. The relationship between her and her creation and its fans has sometimes seemed a bit "it's complicated" to me. It was helpful to hear her talk a bit about the language and its community. #tokipona

tunnels & trolls rules idea Show more
Problem: Tunnels & Trolls combats with large numbers of dice approach 100% predictability due to the law of large numbers.
Solution: In certain circumstances players can make themselves or their opponents cast a single Die of Fate instead of a regular roll, turning 10d6 into 1d6 x 10. Less fun rolling, more fun opening up possibilities.
What circumstances trigger the Die of Fate though? a big combat disparity against the players? A spell? Large numbers of dice?

Apparently Happy Rhodes fans back in Usenet days declared her work to be a genre (Ecto) and looked around for other artists to put in that genre, such as Peter Gabriel and, of course, Kate Bush
