#introduction: 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.
Turn Kickstarter Update! Stretch Goals, Organizer Art, Reminders!
I wrote a ttRPG about an imaginary fighting video game about international conspiracies, and now you can get it for free! Iron Street Combat’s custom hand-to-hand combat subsystem painstakingly replicates the experience of haphazard button-mashing in a game you don’t really understand how to play. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/273235/Iron-Street-Combat-o-A-World-of-Adventure-for-Fate-Core
1. Advertising shits in your head, it is a form of visual and psychological pollution.
2. Removing/Replacing/Defacing advertising is not vandalism, it is an act of tidying up that is both legally and morally defensible.
3. The Visual Realm is a Public Realm, it is part of the commons, it belongs to everyone, so nobody should be able to own it.
4. Outdoor Advertising can and should be banned, Sao Paulo did it in 2006, Grenoble followed suit in 2015.
I played Good Society. I write about it here: https://pluspora.com/posts/1082939
"Spekboom, also known as pork bush or elephant’s food, is our own indigenous wonder plant. Besides being edible (and high in Vitamin C), the medium-sized shrub found predominantly in the Eastern Cape is resilient and an important ‘weapon’ in the fight against climate change.
This carbon sponge can sequester more than 4 tonnes of CO2 per year per hectare planted, making it more effective than the Amazon rainforest at sucking carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere."
Welcome to the intersection of food, film, and racism. This is a story of how, a day after Clio's racist convention experience, my friend Amber and I signed up at that same con to play a role-playing game called "Fortune Cookie Kung Fu." https://jamesmendezhodes.com/blog/2019/3/26/the-fortune-cookie-incident
I just added an account for Where to Find Me: @wheretofindme . Follow them if you wanna hear about new features, bugfixes, changes. I'll sometimes boost them, but this way you can ignore Where to Find Me updates more easily if you want to!
I just discovered that we've had enough donations to cover current server costs for https://wheretofind.me/ for a *year*. I'm floored—thank you all so much for the support and enthusiasm you've shown for something I thought was just gonna be a small use to a few people.
More https://wheretofind.me/ news: we're past 600 signups, and I've fixed a bunch of bugs and added a few features.
You can now put a text tag and quality on your links, and choose an icon for them (though we'll still try to best-guess the icon). The quality is just "low/medium/high", to convey how much you really use that service, and the tag is whatever you want: I'll be curious to see how people use them to organize content.
I'll keep trying to make this better and useful for you!
Somehow, we're past 300 users on Where to Find Me! I am glad this is useful to people, but I know there's more I need to do.
I'm currently working with a few folks on a detailed policy and response to abuses of the service (most notably impersonation), and adding some technical features. The most recent features I've added are nicknames on favstars: when you fav someone, you can also add a nickname that _only you see_ to remind you who that username is.
Check it out: https://wheretofind.me/
Played #Wolfspell🐺 today for the first time in a long while. Still a consistently fantastic game.
Hey folks using https://wheretofind.me/ ! I have a new feature. Search!
*Because I believe in privacy-first design, you have to opt in to search.*
If you're logged in, you can go to https://wheretofind.me/aliases/ and add aliases, names someone might know you by and try to search for you under. You can also flip the "include me in search" toggle if you wanna be searchable.
All your aliases will show up on your profile, so, y'know, only include that really embarrassing one if you wanna.
When I started this piece about racist tropes in Tolkien's orcs, I knew orcs were a racist stereotype. I didn't realize orcs were a stereotype OF ASIANS SPECIFICALLY.

Everyone using https://wheretofind.me/, thank you so much! We passed 100 users while I wasn't looking, and it's really exciting. I hope this is useful to everyone—right now it's just the bare minimum, but I want to make it more useful to you all, while keeping it as aggressively simple as I can. Don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know what I can do to improve it for you.

Just a reminder that the big hype around mobile.co among far-right types isn't just that it openly welcomes them (there have been several sites built for that), but that it can also get their bullshit out to people who AREN'T fascists via federation
Don't let that happen. They're relying on admins and users giving them the benefit of the doubt. Ask your instance mods to defederate and, failing that, mute them
