In the afternoon of May 20th, 2022, we had a security incident on site that we continue to actively investigate. We have no evidence that any customer account data was compromised.

That complete pause in doing anything to sing along to the bridge in "This Corrosion".

Saw Bauhaus again last night - step-daughter wanted to see them in Seattle, she paid for her own ticket and cajoled her uncle into coughing up another so someone could go with her. Much, much better in the smaller venue vs an open stage at a festival.

A lot of people don't realize that the movie Dirty Dancing is an allegory for the Satanic Panic. That's why it has the same initials as Dungeons & Dragons. Patrick Swayze plays a bard.

We have created a concert-loving monster. My step-daughter wanted to go see Bauhaus in Seattle on Thursday if she paid for her own ticket. Her uncle wasn't comfortable with her going alone (we weren't really either) so she got him to pay for my daughter to go too.

I'm gonna be the dad dropping her off at the club, I know it. Of course I'm just as likely to go in too.

And I'm franky tired of this ridiculous insinuation that there are these unwritten rules that turn D&D into the perfect game if only you figure out what they are and Do The Work™️.

D&D does what it was designed to do very well, but it was designed to do fewer things than it claims it was.

And if you have to (objectively) "finish" designing the game before its what you want maybe you haven't chosen the optimal game for what you want to do.

@genesisoflegend Otherwise I love this so much. Definitely want to get it to the table.

@genesisoflegend Some After the War questions.
1) Was the PDF ever updated, and does the print version reflect any kind of update?
2) There's a couple inconsistencies. The timeline says the first FTL took two years ship time but 40 on Earth (and only two weeks return because of improvements) but the timeline seems to indicate only two years. Also the section on Tormenta says that Tormenta Prime's body was imprisoned under guard with a minefield vs a terraforming bomb to keep it subdued.

I realized last night I actually have After the War by @genesisoflegend but it kind of slipped through the cracks. Started reading it today...I absolutely love this game. The setting is really evocative. I'll likely run it with the system as is, but I'm getting really cool ideas for Cortex mods from it.

🎲I've been working on Yonder, a Free dice roller that works within google sheets

Right now it supports PbtA, FitD and d20-like games, as well as Troika and Flying Circus directly

Try it and let it me know if it works for you!!

Huh, there's only a handful of duplicates between Short Order Heroes and Tales of Xadia's adjective list. For the uninitiated, the adjectives modify a smaller list of vocations, and both combined provide a list of SFX the player can choose from. So you can have a "Patient Advisor".

This is actually a good thing because it means I can present SoH as an alternate way of randomly determining the adjective and I get to write a bunch of SFX.

So I'm kind of soft-launching the reboot of my blog today. I think 99% of it is in place and I'll work the kinks out as I go. I figured that a Cortex post would be a good way to start:

Holy shit...just deployed my blog through Netflify and...it worked. The DNSes are redirecting and the certificates are certificating and the servers are serving.
I have some stuff to fix up before the grand re-opening, but this is good stuff.

This project makes me so proud! anarchodom.itch.io/shock-human

@AnarchoDom has been redesigning my Shock:Social Science Fiction for use in classrooms. He’s using it to teach a college class about culture and ethics.

That makes me so proud and happy!
