The rules are below, but just to be a bit more concise (these rules were made a year ago), just make sure your submissions don't violate the .ART CoC!
And as always, boosts are appreciated!

words for my fellow white people (edited)
I am racist. In my core. I struggle with it daily.
I have done very racist things to POC's faces and in private. I have supported racist systems and people. None of that is ok. I am not able to apologize or absolve myself of many of these things. I have to carry them with me.
I am not perfect, and I never will be. But I'm looking for concrete ways in which to make change and trying to do it more quietly and not be performative.
You are going to fuck up. You're going to hurt ppl. You have to embrace this fact. It's not ok to make POC do labor for you and be your personal confessional. It's not ok to cling tighter to your biases when called out.
White supremacy tells us that people are either good or bad, but that is a lie. Your worth is not determined by your mistakes. But you have to be willing to own them and commit to doing better.
Feel free to hit me up if you want to talk about white people bullshit.

I'm starting to turn my notes into the final text for Blazko, my upcoming game about strength in diversity (and killing nazis).
I'm hoping I will have a first version sometime in the next two weeks, but we'll see.
I wouldn't really call the game Forged in the Dark but a couple of details are certainly inspired by Blades in the Dark.
I wrote a post on OpSec, addressed at leftists and activists. It's pretty 101 but I think it could be useful for a lot of people out there. It's also only the first part of a series I'm planning to write on the subject.

@mxfraud not a tabletop rpg but the character Tellah in final fantasy 4 loses stat points in everything other than wisdom as he levels up; representing how he is really wearing himself out by adventuring at his immensely old age.
