An #introduction is in order.

Yesterday we played #Clank! It is probably one of the most fun games I know. The card drafting, combined with the board and carefully planned timing is pure genius. We also played #CityofKings for the first time. A pretty hard game with lots of fiddly bits, but nonetheless straight forward mechanics. I believe it is a fun game with some strategic merit, but need to play a lot more to be sure. #boardgames
I love the idea of the #fediverse, where there are all these different services that can all talk and share stuff on the same underlying framework.
The HUGE issue I'm having is I still have to make accounts on almost a dozen servers to be able to share different kinds of content. #Pixelfed for images, #mastodon for short messages, #Plume for blogging, and now #prismo for reddit-esk news.
Whatever happened to federated logins like #OpenID that let me use my main to sign into other sites? 🤔😓
#Trunk is a community-run directory of people on the Fediverse who are looking for followers:
It's opt-in, so people only get listed if they specifically ask to be there.
It's organised by topic, and you can follow individuals or the entire list for that category.
Very much inspired by @kensanata and his Halberds & Helmets I've been toying with the idea of compiling a booklet of rules for a planned old school campaign. I've come up with some tentative titles for the project, but can't decide which of these I like the most. What do the fediverse think?
* Vaults & Vagabonds
* Vaults & Vanguards
* Tombs & Troubles
I think I made my first website in '96 or so. Made it for some friends who wanted a site for their band. Wasn't very good. Started reviewing movies around '02 and made a site to publish my writing. Then blogging happened around '05 and I had around 150 reviews that I moved to #blogger, then #wordpress, then #squarespace, then wordpress again, tried #ghost, #silvrback and maybe more. Question: If I wanted to write anonymously today and still keep my content mine, where and how would I do it?
Friday: Ah! Weekend at last. I've got so many things I want to do; finish writing my old school rpg house rules, update the website I use for our ongoing game, play more The 7th Continent, go for a run, eat plenty of pizza, play Skyrim, have a glass of wine while reading the last adventure of Egil & Nix, oversleep, stay awake until way past my normal bedtime, bingewatch The Umbrella Academy, eat breakfast for two hours.
Sunday evening: ...at least I ate some pizza.
I'm thinking about what it would take, what can we do, to get as many as possible of the old (and good) #RPG-G+-people to join #Fediverse? I know the info has been widespread before, but I understand the majority that sought new platforms either joined MeWe (which I don't like), Discord (which I dislike / don't have time for) or dropped out altogether. Combining for instance(pun intended) Mastodon, Write.Freely, Peertube and PixelFed it would make a pretty powerful replacement for ALL the needs?
Tried to install #Lutris on Linux MInt 17.3, but ran into dependency hell pretty quickly. Bummer. I don't have the time for this.

I have developed an inexplicable urge to start playing #MtG again. Probably buy into a couple of Planeswalkers and maybe a Toolkit. I know I shouldn't. Tell me why. Please. 😀
