@edheil Except...the other parts of the conversations are out there to be found. So, hmm.

@edheil Painful. Not a ransom attack, so...someone who was using it wanted to cover their tracks?

Morning jam: "What are we going to do about the rich?" A question left provocatively unanswered. By Pet Shop Boys.


On one hand, asking a RPG designer about their next project is the best question. "I really like your stuff. Tell me more." On the other hand, it's the most crushing question. "Don't tell me you're tapped out? I guess you weren't the inspired creator I thought you were."

It's not perfect. None of the client programs I've found deliver all of its functionality. It fails to let me upload images sometimes, with no discernible pattern. The twitter gateway on rpgtable.com isn't working. My avatar image is grainy and I can't figure out why. It low-res'd it for some reason.

With the shuttering of Google+ I may gradually start using it more. It lets me share to groups, and has a higher character limit for posts.

The only good thing about the shuttering of Google+ I can think of is you'll be able to quote people and they won't remember well enough to be able to deny it.

You've seen my shelfie. I went through a bunch of core books and didn't find a single one with a guest written foreword/preface/introduction.

Empire of the Petal Throne has an introduction by Gary Gygax. Name another RPG with a guest introduction? Why don't we do this more commonly?

Kiri Leonard says the point of is "whether or not artists are subconsciously painting things that kind of look like themselves." But what if you did ?

@JoshuaACNewman Xul Solar was an Argentine artist who was friends with Borges. Among other things he created languages and fictional board games.

"Games were the 'workshop of languages in the making'...the nucleus and matrix of it all, and none was more complex than the Pan Game, a board of non-chess, whose indeterminate rules were simultaneously a group of musical notes, a dictionary for the creation of new languages and a way to ask 'What are we playing?'"

I got a quick look when left its phone unlocked after posting to its Slack.


...picking the Poet's mother to die at the end, but got a little choked up during my eulogy. He told me I could get a new mother. I told him that usually doesn't happen, but that as The Land he could probably make happen whatever he wanted. He said, "Yes, you get a new one, because I say." On the walk home we talked about why people die. No regrets at all about playing it.
