I haven't poked my head in here for a good long while. I've been just way too busy with work, running Tribes in the Dark, writing Tribes in the Dark, and just life in general.

So how are things going in dice.camp land?

In case there's any Tacoma area peeps around here, on the 23rd I'm running a Tribes in the Dark demo at Silver King Games

In a sane and just world, all indie #ttrpg books would look like mid-1970s science textbooks.

@cavedueller Our Labradoodle gets freaked out by any kind of random clothing. He wouldn't go near a hoodie someone put over a fire hydrant the other day

I started playing around more with Obsidian, particularly the Juggl plugin, after I saw a post about it. I have to say...big learning curve. But at the same time, super flexible. I love that all of the notes and whatnot can be graphed. It eliminates the need to have the notes in one app and any relationship map ln another app. Just drop a note with the details, tag it correctly, and Obsidian will take care of the rest.

A thing I've started doing a lot is rolling a die when I need to know something about the detail of the fictional world. Can ghosts communicate with the living? Can skeletons write? Sometimes this leads to delightful surprises and exciting turns of events. Sometimes it leads to things that feel a little... "off" I guess. There's many cases where reasoning from principles and making a ruling is the better choice. I'm still figuring out what that line is.

I guess I made this a few years back. I don't remember doing it.

I'm in the with my game Turn, a sliver of life supernatural game set in rural small towns where you play shapeshifters finding balance between human habits and beast instincts, building community, and trying to life life as someone who just isn't like anyone else. Themes of identity, community, & growth are big in this one!

@dustin You need to be able to login in to the Nintendo online account to add one AFAIK. If you get a new Switch in the future, you won't have access to your saves. Also if they figure it out, you'll lose access anyway. If it's just the joycons that might be a good reason to return it. But their Nintendo account being logged in is an easy fix (factory reset) and not something you want to not address.

@dustin Keep it. You'll need to replace joycons at some point anyway. Factory reset the Switch. Without having the account credentials, you won't be able to change payment methods. You won't be able to buy anything of your own.

@jalefkowit There was a Rifts game for the Ngage. Somehow I think the two things were appropriate for one another.

Sometimes I just like some relatively mindless boot-stomping noise.

@martinralya I'm looking at getting a regular online game night set up. Right now it's mostly an energy issue 🤣
