People here might not be familiar with my (limited) work. I wrote a Cybergoth setting for PbtA-based The Sprawl RPG. It has sadly gotten less attention than I would have liked:

If you're coming from Twitter, you might not recognize the "post privacy" option.

Basically, each post you send on Mastodon can have 1 of 4 privacy settings: Public, Unlisted, Followers-only, or Direct.

Basically, Public goes far and wide, Followers-only is nice for more personal stuff (and can't be boosted -- retweeted), and Direct means it's like a Direct Message to any and all users you mention (tag) in your post.

I regret to inform you all that despite locking down my font for flying ship pieces as "done", I am still enamored with messing with it, so there will probably end up being a second font. Or a set.

Eventually I'll get bored of this, but not today!

A few years ago I made this flow chart of which Mastodon posts end up in which timelines!

So, you can see how each instance will have a different local timeline, and even a slightly different federated timeline - and you can see why the federated timeline moves so much faster than the local one, too.

This is why it's important to boost good posts and use hashtags - the fediverse is fragmented and harder to search by nature.

… wait does the official Mastodon app not have a way to see the local timeline? Or am I missing this like a certified dope?

I'm not fully sold on rhyming "toot" with "toot", but whatcha gonna do?

Now would be a great time to go RPG shopping on DriveThuRPG!

This week OBS is offering us 10% commission on all affiliate sales!

So if there's something you've been holding off on picking up, it would be awesome if you chose this week as the time to make that purchase.

Along with this they also have a 10% off POD book sale going on, so now is also a great time to pick up some print books to go with all those PDFs.


A tutor who tooted the flute,
Tried to tutor two tooters to toot.
Said the two to the tutor:
"Is it harder to toot or
To tutor two tooters to toot?"


Okay, "Tooting"... hard to take it seriously.

(And my kids will *NOT* let that go if I ever say it out loud!)

Hi! I'm Kevin, I design and facilitate role-playing games, among other things. You might know me from Princess World - A Game of Girls Who Rule.

Just here trying to find an alternate non-bird related social media location/connection.

Here's most of my designs on itch:

A Mastodon server for RPG folks to hang out and talk. Not owned by a billionaire.
