Pinned toot hmm, seems like we actually have different goals. My lifelong ambition is to drink all fruit, like a fruit bat spider, stealing it from its house and eating its insides with my proboscis.

brainstorming. The Expanse books Spoiler 

"D&D is about killing monsters and taking their stuff."

idk, in my favorite D&D games, PCs treat combat as a last resort. But then these aren't D&D 5e or Pathfinder games so maybe I'm just mad that "D&D" narrows nearly 50 years of different editions to the past ten.

*sigh* Found that one of my favourite games, Word Whimsy has gone out of print.

Great card czar game, like Apples to Apples or Cards Against Humanity, but every turn you play 1-7 cards that are read it order, so I've never seen the same play twice, unlike say, CaH.

Plus instead of going edgy with the humour, they went for sex humour and toilet humour, so its...less likely to be insulting to anyone to play from what I can tell?

My general stance in is that no argument about rules lasts longer than 60 seconds before I cut it off and just make something up.

But, for once in my life

I'd like to speak about me

I've gotten to a point where the story is a Part 2 and Part 1 is in an earlier issue (which I didn't have). Fortunately, it's available online
The story is "Iron" by Poul Anderson and this is apparently where the tiger people are from (the Knziti, rather than Aslan, but same thing from what I can tell).
A favorite about the story so far is that fission is outdated and Belters live in spinning cylinder-stations around Alpha Centauri A (meaning no gravity manipulation).

Reading through this book I'm getting an idea of having plenty of psychic hive mind races in a game. Specifically, "Point Man" by Timothy Zahn.
Also, I love that artwork. Looks like an Aslan I guess.

Ads on crime podcasts are always jarring. "People are dead, and lives are ruined. *Pause* we'll be right back. Do you have trouble sleeping? Get a new mattress!"

finished running Carrion Crown session. Feeling better about it.

I ran Free League's Alien sample scenario in the back of the book tonight. The final days of Hadley's Hope as a few colonists try to escape.
It went really well! The system is really simple, the increasing stress makes you better at rolls but also more prone to Bad Panic Things so they are far more careful about choosing to roll for something. Combat is also easy, but very brutal. But for some terrible luck on the Aliens there'd have been 3 dead, easy. Must try a campaign soon.

Made a quadrant with @traveller
The primary subsector is the top-left.
I have noticed recently that the notes that I place in parentheses may be disrupting the faction coloring (determined by brackets). So I will have to find a new place to put those notes or squish them under their system.

Hmm, what if I used but added in generic Civilian and War Events from These Stars Are Ours? Maybe just once every two terms so it doesn't cause skill bloat, and if you learn a skill from this it starts at 0-level.
