It is up! So, after last week posting the history of my campaign setting, this week my post on what I'd like to see players doing is up. Well, when I DM, there is a more roleplay focused campaign idea going up next week, but the "Helping the people on the edge of post-war no-man's land" idea is up today, I'd love feedback and to know if you'd enjoy playing in this type of game:

salespost, please boost! 

Selling my Steam Deck since I’ve basically gotten no use out of it. $600 + shipping for the highest spec model they offer. I’ll also include my micro SD so you can set up a windows dual boot if you like!

@Canageek
Once I've written the article, it will be published in Digits and Threads: digitsandthreads.ca/ -- which will also have a piece about the Murdoch Quilt project by @emilyknits and is co-published by @kateatherley

I am feeling pretty danged lucky today. I just got to interview the costume designer for Murdoch Mysteries, the beloved Canadian costume drama. She is delightful! Thank you to @emilyknits and @kateatherley !

YOUNG POLLSTER: We need to know whether respondents are nerds or not, but how do we quantify that?

SAVVY OLDER POLLSTER: Ask how much time they spend thinking about ninjas.

Freed from their respective labs, the two weirds formed a partnership, feeding on the arcane energies of war.

hasbro layoffs 

hum, so maybe the creative comons news today is also partially there to cover for this 1k people that hasbro is terminating seattletimes.com/business/hasb

While I said I wanted head to roll, I mostly had execs/C level people in mind, which I doubt there is a thousands and I assume are not the ones being let go

(first link I found, I care not for the seattle times)

Wow! What a surprising turn of events.

  1. We are leaving OGL 1.0a in place, as is. Untouched.
  2. We are also making the entire SRD 5.1 available under a Creative Commons license.
  3. You choose which you prefer to use.

The 5.1 SRD is released under Creative Commons now. That’s huge. They can’t walk that one back.

holy mordekainan, I was not expecting Wizards to back down completely announced that they will not be touching the OGL 1.0a and put the entire 5th edition SRD under Creative Commons. o.0

Because it's come up and it makes me laugh every time: I do page layout in LibreOffice Impress, a free and open-source Powerpoint knockoff.

And it's great.

Here's what it looks like:

Cezar Capacle is starting up a newsletter called "Global South Shoutout" that "highlights indie tabletop game designers from the Global South and its diaspora." Substack link below; birdsite link with more context in thread.

Oh, I can just ask: When do YOU read new rpg blogposts? When would YOU be most likely to read my blog?

Also interesting to note: I put up posts Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Sat and Sun have larger numbers of posts then normal background, Monday does NOT. So I should put posts up on the weekends when people are browsing blogs, and not on weekdays when they aren't.

Of course, it could be most people came here from Mastodon, I can't tell as it doesn't send a refer.

I mentioned to my gaming group that you can get piles of rubies and sapphires for next to nothing these days, so I wanted to assemble a chest of them to use as gaming props. Someone googled it and you can get 100 carets worth of them for $30

The cosplayer's eyes lit up SO MUCH

OH FOR THE LOVE OF. I thought this went up in a week, and it went up at 9 am yesterday.

This actually outline the relevant history of the campaign setting I'm writing; canageek.wordpress.com/2023/01

Feedback is very welcome!

Alright heck it I've reached a breaking point with this crap. We have GOT to make the internet more than five big crappy websites full of screenshots of the other four. Hell with it, do-it-ourselves time.

PM me with your hobby website URL, email address and 468*60 non-animated banner image, and I'll give you free advertising on Improbable Island.

The Island transfers 1.5 to 2 gigabytes of text a day, that's a lotta eyeballs on your ad, no catch. Boosts welcome.
