Pinned toot

: I'm Kit, I like games about feelings and people, ideally in weird (and especially spooky) circumstances. I make some, too. Been working on Et in Arcadia Ego, my Regency fantasy game, for a while, and have a few other smaller projects bubbling along.

You wanna play? Let's play.

This is my all-RPGs-all-the-time alt.

Reading/playing a Regency fantasy IF, and I just twigged to what I don't like about it: while the game does something valuable in casting aside period homophobia, sexism, racism, etc, that also undercuts the thematic emphasis of Regency fantasy. For me, writing in the Regency is a way to explore society's restrictions, bigotries, and failings against the contrast of magic.

Hey if you like Django, Django REST Framework, and Django Channels, I wrote a thing that might interest you:

Inching closer to that first draft for Arcadia. It's gonna be done, and I'll be happy with that. Always always always makes your projects scaled such that you can do a lot. Don't get caught in the "this project is my magnum opus" trap.

Feelin' that "witches are a non-consumer category" thing right now. May be getting another dang game idea.

Read my interview about #ThousandArrows with @briecs! I talk about my research process and the game's scope, and show off some art. We're down to the campaign's last ten days, and we need your help to fund. Ride with us. briecs.com/2018/11/five-or-so-

There are some Kickstarters running now that I'm excited for, but aside from Turn and Thousand Arrows, what games upcoming are you excited about?

I'm totally eager for Dream Apart and Imp of the Perverse, personally.

"β€œYou’re right, Paul, he overpowered a woman,” Mr. Jones interjected.

Mr. Acosta did no such thing. On Thursday, the White House News Photographers Association said it was β€œappalled” that the White House had distributed the Infowars clip.

β€œAs visual journalists, we know that manipulating images is manipulating truth,” the group said in a statement. β€œIt’s deceptive, dangerous and unethical. Knowingly sharing manipulated images is equally problematic...”"

Thousand Arrows is a tabletop role-playing game of Japanese Warring States-era samurai drama. All my years of work and study in game design, Asian history and classics, and martial arts led to this. Please back, share, and bring it to life! kck.st/2SqyXyl Gunpowder and betrayal!

I'm writing the almost-last section of my Regency Fantasy game, and it's, y'know, *lore*. Writing about the regions of England at the time. Southwest, southeast, East, Midlands, North. Also London, but that's special and different.

What would be useful to include in each section? It's like no more than 500 words, just a little orientation and intro. Landscape, economic activity, social issues, what else?

"The answer to creation
is to create.
When theory reaches a stalemate
things burn to begin."

From an inscription in front of John Bastard's monument to the victims of the Great Fire of Blandford.

My work has shafted me cash-wise, my side gig hasn't actually paid out in over a month, so i am opening #emergencycommisions

HMU if for character art, storyboarding, graphic design, or a pinch-hit website!

You can see some of my work here: portfolio.ethical-chaos.org/

I just last night read through The Clay that Woke cover-to-cover, which I don't think I've done with any other RPG. It's fascinating, and both well- and differently-written. During the day I was walking down the street reading it. It gripped me.

A while back I built a site that converts RSS feeds to ActivityPub actors that you can subscribe to from Mastodon and other ActivityPub-compliant social networks: bots.tinysubversions.com/conve

I've now also published the source code: github.com/dariusk/activtypub-

What I'm realizing right now is that I want a few folks to play a regular RPG with for the kind of community that is, not for the game. Gonna chew on that right now, because the community I have right now is really pretty good.

Ok, so now I need to follow a bunch of people here to talk about roleplaying games, history, de-colonization, how cool rocks are, probably some other stuff. I guess ping this if that sounds cool to you and I'll follow you back?

Behind the Masc is printed? Oh wait hold on

BEHIND THE MASC IS PRINTED

AND IT LOOKS GREAT

Pics to the KS tonight!

OK, gonna be streaming Naval Action in half an hour or so, at twitch.tv/wlonk

Ask me questions about boats and ships! I'll try to answer.
