I play games of all kinds, but is especially important to me. The -kind I mainly stick to some of the original . I do my other gaming on a board or .

You can find me elsewhere:

I have a bunch of old minis that I don't know when was made or who produced them. Looking for a forum or a website that could help me get them identified.

I arrived some time ago. Have been and probably will be a little on and off, but the fediverse is pretty perfect for what I want.

Do you know any good resources for quickly generating towns and cities? I need to figure out name, population, important buildings, important NPCs, governance, import/export and so forth. Preferably books with lots of tables, but web based tools is ok too.

So, yesterday's session of Castles & Crusades didn't go as it usually does. In four ours we squeezed in a hell of a lot of shopping, some drinking, quite a bit of investigating and only one puny fight. Also, I figured out I'm really not very good at being intimidating. Is it a good sign when the players laugh at the referee playing a tough guy? 😂

I've just realized that playing rpgs and buying rpgs is two completely separate hobbies.

When creating tables in LaTeX and you consistently write \bottomsrule instead of \bottomrule.

My so slow it is nearly useless Nexus 7 tablet was renewed today. I removed all Google software on it and it now works like a charm. Nice one Google.

Helmets! They don't usually do anything and when they do it seems excessive (1 point of AC comes to mind). I'm still fiddling with my own rules and I came up with this. Whenever a blow brings your character to EXACTLY 0 hp wearing a helmet effectively keeps your character at 1 hp. Your helmet saved your life, as they should do, and you get one last chance.

Alternative Divine Spellcasting - Cleric reboot

This was really inspirational and might very well be what i will use for clerics in my own Vaults & Vagabonds-rules. I really dig how these simple rules joins Turn Undead and Spellcasting into the same concept, and how it opens up very creative choices for the cleric.

What is a better ability for fighters:
* Against creatures with 1HD or less, a Fighter makes one attack per level each round.
* When fighters strike a hit, they also deal half damage to all opponents surrounding them. (alt. deal damage equal to fighter level).

The first is the old way, the second is maybe more elegant, but potentially more powerful?

So, are there any good Mastodon clients for Linux?

Oh. My. God.

Just installed MX Linux just to test another distro.

I think I just came my home.

It's baffling how e-mail is still considered viable as a method for news and advertisement. I auto delete almost everything that is not from an actual person.

Anyone know of a good resource on how to install a lightweight but capable Distro on a tablet ( 7 2012) that runs so slow it is pretty useless with current Android? I will mainly use it for reading pdf's and comics.
