Blah. My mental "Hafta" list is crushing my "Wanna" list to the point where I don't really wanna any more. I mean, I want to wanna, but my brain is like "but you hafta first" which leaves no energy left for wannaing.

The solution? Just keep on digging. Also wipe the lists out to an archive and start again with something manageable.

"Wooden Sword Thespians" is a setting for Thirsty Sword Lesbians, at the Ridgewood Park High School Drama Club, 1997. Fight the administration, endure rival cliques making trouble, make out backstage, and put on the best damn play you can.

Anyone else stumbling through the day feeling like you've hit bottom emotionally only to wake up the next day and discover an even lower bottom to hit?

Anyone? Just me? Cool. Coolcoolcool.

I think I'll be OK. I think it's a periodic funk. I just wish I could sleep it off.

Or, y'know, actually get some restorative sleep.

Just misread a game-related ad as "Unicorn Salad", and I don't know what to do with that name now.

I'm at 51 hours after my 4th vaccination. Still no internal WiFi.

After watching this intro, I'm really looking forward to the rest of the Success In RPGs series.

@linnaeus Lately, I’ve been fiddling with Iron Core and I really like it. I think mechanics where players need to distribute dice results in different categories is my vibe.

Probably explains why Adam Vass’s Y2K is on my mind these days (and also my obsession with BHNoB.)

Y2K is using a d100 for general results, but you then take your rolled d10s to assign them to determine fallout.

Both are free!

Hey Tootfam. I've been offline dealing with replacing the floor in my RV bumpout. It's been a long haul, but the new floor is attached to the walls. There's a pile of finish work to do this weekend, but I think the end is in sight.

Now to find someone to fix the AC...

Visual Typos:
I took a quick glance at a video with "Rise of Nations" in the thumbnail graphics. My brain parsed it as "Arse of Photons", which is admittedly a =very= different game.

Today I attended a celebration of life for a college friend, mentor, and fellow gamer. It was lovely, and I caught up with friends I haven't seen in years.

And now I want this to be a thing at whatever celebration happens after I'm gone.

Tonight's project was updating the Commercial Maps Archive - now up to a mere FOUR HUNDRED AND SEVENTY-FIVE free commercially-licensed maps!


My next game is coming up and I'm looking for a few encounter ideas.

The (4th level) party is underground helping a dwarven army flee an overwhelming force of duergar (soul-sucked dwarves), gnoll skirmishers, bearded devil heavies, tiefling irregulars, and a few white abishai to keep the troops in line. Last session was a long skirmish, so I'd like to limit combat and still keep a couple of clocks racing toward Escape or Showdown.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I'm Jess! In my day job, I make games, do game research, and teach game design from middle school all the way up to postgraduate work. In the rest of my life, I read voraciously, sing, embroider, foster assorted cats, and spend time with my awesome family.

I'm hoping to reach folks who know me from G+, so please boost if you can. I'm also excited to meet new people in this community. Maybe it'll become my new home!

Peter Regan of Squarehex is cutting the bookmarks for the Book of Swords Kickstarter fulfilment and got bored and ended up trimming the swords out completely for one set.
