Seems like the perception is that Mastodon is an inferior platform for creatives because it's less powerful as a promotional tool. But that risks reducing creative work to its commercial function. In many ways, Mastodon is better for discussing creative work.

These Savage Shores digital (by the amazing and underrated Ram V) is on sale on Amazon/ComiXology. Just go buy it and read it. If you read comics you should read this story. Hell, even if you don’t read comics, don’t miss out.

$372 away from having @RobertBohl back writing for Misspent Youth. Fall In Love, Not In Line is in its last full day on Kickstarter.

Help us get there? Are you a MEE-LEE-OWN-AIR and want to help support an ethical TTRPG company (not an actual oxymoron)?

Reminder why Forums are great and Discord sucks.

Googled something I needed today and where did it lead me? To a post on my own forum 😅 with the exact fix.

Search engines don't get Discord but they do get Forums.

Put guides on Forums pleeeeaaase.

Finished listening to the audiobooks of Austin Kleon’s Steal Like an Artist “trilogy” and I would recommend them highly to anyone being creative and, especially, trying to be creative. They are comforting and encouraging without being obnoxiously rah rah. They also include good, actionable advice.

I will say that the third one is maybe a notch less great than the first two, but it is still very good. Did audiobooks and they work well that way but I’ve since bought a hard copy of Steal.

What are your favourite resources on safety tools for TTRPG play? I have Script Change RPG Toolbox by Beau Jágr Sheldon and the Fate Accessibility Toolkit. Looking for what to refer folks to as good places to start in a rulebook since I am largely unqualified to put together a toolkit myself.

Incidentally, using Craft currently to write this rough draft and really like how it handles organizing and giving hierarchy to a larger project. It’s not Scrivener or Ulysses, but it beats using a huge number of text files or tagged notes in Bear or Notes. Or a Word document.

An Oath is a long term goal a Knight has sworn to pursue to completion. Generally an Oath will take a long time (multiple sessions of play, possibly across several worlds) to complete and the best course to pursue is not always obvious. While a Knight may have multiple active oaths in the fiction, the character they will only be pursuing the Oath on their character sheet mechanically, and will only change that Oath when it has been resolved or the Knight Forsakes it.

A Belief is a guiding principle that dominates a Knight’s view of the world. It may not be universally applicable to all of life, but it is relevant to the portions of life the Knight wants to pursue while they have the Belief.

In play, the Guide should seek opportunties to put all of the Knights’ Beliefs to the test. Seek opportunities to make remaining true to a Belief difficult, awkward or downright problematic for the Knight.

These friendships you have made.

These bonds.

They are how we’ll do this.

They are how we will win.

We used to own the void.

Yet we persist.

We gather.

You will have no power here.

Because you’ll end up Either by our sides, or swept aside.

Join the future.

Reclaim the void.

Be mighty, together.
