I got to do an Actual Play session!
I have been playing TTRPGs since the 90s (anyone remember Amber?!) but rarely get invited to do these, so I'm stoked.
Plus the system is so clean - 4D6 with enough mechanisms the structure gives me guide-rails but enough freedom that you feel like the collaborative narrative is the core.
Anyhoo... if you're bored, check it out. Paula Deming GM'd and Danny Quach, Ross Connell, and Mandi Hutchinson are awesome.
"Deploy the DOTs. We'll hopefully get a good look at the Anomaly and find a way to make-safe the Torpedo."
Dozens of the diminutive droids are deployed in a sprawl across the hull. They quickly congregate around the Anomaly, fixing hull damage as they go.
On the mainscreen, the Bridge crew have an up close DOT POV of the Anomaly... It's beautiful. The swirling gases have coalesced into a semi-solid arachnid-like form, which pulses with light and energy. At it's centre, often obscured by the dark gases, bobs the Torpedo.
The Anomaly shifts slightly and a nearby DOT is sliced in half by a stray tendril of gravimetric shear...
Going to try a thing: white guys, please boost!!
Comment here if you're: queer and/or BIPOC and you are interested in talking about #TTRPGs #GameDesign #LARP or #games #art so we can create some discoverability for marginalized folks trying to find community with each other
I'll start! I'm a queer trans nb person who designs and publishes tabletop games and LARPs about gender and queerness. My jam lately has been happy games about queer people finding love and community
For my followers:
"Heads up: Weirder Earth will be upgrading our silence on mastodon.social and mastodon.online to defederation, one week from today (November 26th). Moving to defederation means their large number of users won't be able to see Weirder Earth accounts anymore, and all follows between our instances will be ended.
We are defederating because historically the moderation of mastodon.social [m.s] and mastodon.online [m.o] has been inadequate. With both servers having grown a lot recently, there is now also more bigots and harassers on those instances, and there's no sign that their moderation team is currently able to handle that. This is a safety concern for a significant proportion of our users."
To mastodon.social and mastodon.online friends
Hey! Weirder.earth will be defederating from mastodon.social and mastodon.online soon - in a week - due to problematic moderation on those instances. Alas. When that happens, we won't be able to see each other's stuff.
Are you able to move to a smaller instance? Smaller servers are cool. Be on a smaller server. Be cool.
Okay, how about, is there a way in Mastodon to automatically expand all CW posts from a specific person without automatically expanding everyone else's CW posts?
