No Night Writer this week, but probably next week!

I think I might even have something to demo then. I mean, not a full-on demo, but something to play around with a little more than just brainstorming.

It is only a matter of minutes now.

I mean, it was always a matter of minutes, but now it's most convenient to measure the matter in minutes instead of, say, fractions of an hour or thousands of seconds.

Returning to The Night Writer tonight at 9 PM EDT, on twitch.tv/epidiah
Gonna explore some gimmicky mechanics, because that's kinda on brand for me.

Every game designer should have a little notebook full of scribbled notes and diagrams only they can comprehend.

I have, in fact, gotten into Clojure.

This is what the HP 50g felt like.

Haven't played Swords in a while, and I need to fix that. Some folks on the Discord feel the same.

So if you've been itching for some Swords Without Master, or just want to learn how to play, I invite you to join discord.gg/HZgrxJ2w

Tonight, 9 PM EDT, the Night Writer returns!

These Incredible, Interchangeable Intergalaxians are about to get some rules, right in their faces!

Holy shit: Jeremy Strandberg (author of the amazing Dungeon World blog Spouting Lore) archived 31 Google+ communities by converting them to WordPress posts, preserving 37,000 G+ posts in the process.

I stumbled across this today. It feels like finding a literal treasure trove.

It's happening again!

And by "it" I mean all the thrills and chills of LIVE tabletop roleplaying game design.

And by "again" I mean in a few minutes. Got to get situated, first.

Returning to this again tonight, 9 PM EDT, on the Twitch channel, to see if we can't get some rules on them there bones.

Yes, I'm very much going to get into the Clojure.

For some reason, I woke up this morning thinking I had to do all the things I had to do for both today and tomorrow, today. Like, for several hours, both days lived simultaneously in my brain.

I am, just this moment, relieved to announce I have untangled the days.

The good news is, today only consists of today.

The bad news is, tomorrow is yet to come.

With a little luck, we'll return to The Night Writer tonight and see if we can't scrounge up some mechanics for these Intergalaxians!

9 PM, EDT, over here:

I've been teaching myself Django for a while now. Largely just making toy projects to see how it works, building up to redoing my website with some playful bells and whistles.

That means learning a lot about web development in general, from front end things like CSS and JS to painful things like databases.

Are all databases evil?
