The Dictionary of Mu is up for pre-order, shipping in early January.

The Dictionary of Mu is a pulp fantasy setting supplement for Ron Edwards' Sorcerer RPG where demons are dead things, bits of history made wrong. Players will decide the fate of the planet through play, adding to the dictionary as they go and creating a deeper and richer history with every demonic summoning.

@edheil you mean in apps? Well, less glare, and on oled screens even less battery consumption.

@edheil I think even RMS' fans agree he's kind of a dick with zero human interaction abilities. And he doesn't have that many fans.

People that had to accomodate him for guest appearances (will not name names) at events were... less than amused.

@Halfjack hmm, yeah you're right, super-small-run (even 100 copies) is not POD like you were thinking about. I agree with you but... Lulu seems super static, Amazon I suspect doesn't *want* to support a 3rd party business (KS).

@Halfjack for single books, yes.

For tiny runs (500 copies or less)... I've been to a printer that only does digital, to pick up copies when we were printing for Janus: they have zero IT, no computer skills. If they have a website, it's run by someone else (or horribly outdated).

@Halfjack POD are basically just digital printing shops with a website to collect the pdf and orders... but the shops remained the same old-school shit: big wharehouses full of giant printers and stacks of paper and spare parts.

I suspect they were never really reached by the innovation, it was just a new way to get orders.

But yes, it would be nice to have a more modern integration.

@rafial that's probably from a database of "model name <-> USB Vendor/Product ID"... changing productID when there's no need is bad form (not that Samsung cares, for example). MTP/ADB has not changed in a while, I guess :)

Re-watching the X-Files episode written by Gibson (Kill Switch) I just noticed a tiny detail (who knows how intentional) for the first time.

The golden burned CD-ROM they find in Gelman's laptop plays "Twilight Time".

Who remembers the underground CDs that were popular in the Nineties, chock-full of pirated software? Yep. Twilight.

One thing Whalebird does not do, and it's a biggie: How am I supposed to follow conversations if when I click on a message I don't see the reconstructed thread (previous and subsequent reply chain).

Maybe you’ll be glad to know that the Italian edition of “Lovecraftesque” has been just announced as the winner of the Italian Role-playing Game of the Year and will be awarded at the Lucca Comics & Games 2018 fair, next November.

Hurrah for “Lovecraftesque”!

@jburneko I peeked at Pluspora too. Seems ok-ish. Then I peeked at it's public stream. A couple of white supremacists and a couple of religious nuts within 4 screenfuls.

@JoshuaACNewman font and font size is configurable in the settings... maybe tinker there? Over here the layout is pretty good.

@root now, to be fair, that describes most online services, even some more "pro" than Mastodon (heck, I remember a number of cases of big services that didn't even crypt the user passwords properly).

Uh, I just found out this Mastodon client and it's pretty neat so far. Will keep testing (multiplatform Linux/Win/Apple)

But FOUR DAYS REMAIN on the campain to bring the Bronze Age Sword & Sorcery ttRPG, The BLOODY-HANDED NAME of BRONZE to life


@JoshuaACNewman that's a nicer way to say other players miss turns though (rarely fun) 😊

Play N turns sounds a lot like the minmaxed DnD "attack 8 times while the rest of the table waits"

Fun fact: ads are one of the prominent malware vectors right now. You're better off without an antivirus than without an adblocker, basically (and stay away from crap like McAfee and Norton: both were used as VECTORS in the past. Better the built-in MS one).
