Hi! I'm new here. I'm the Community Collections Archivist at Virginia Tech. I'm also a bit of a speculative fiction geek. I played Rifts and Warhammer 40k as a kid. Today, I'm more into D&D 5E but wouldn't say no to a game of Rifts. Also ❀️ Critical Role. πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆπŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆ

Thankful for friends who do NOT have perfect teeth. Having tooth pain but just had my regular cleaning. Was advised to call the dentist and go back - that it's probably a cavity. I would have lived with intermittent pain for months waiting to tell the dentist in six months at my next cleaning (or waited for very severe constant pain) without the advise of someone experienced in these matters.

Planning my character for a 5E one-shot this weekend. We were told to pick anything from the Monster Manual as our race. I’m building a pixie barbarian. So excited to see a raging pixie! πŸ§šβ€β™‚οΈβ€‹

Does anyone remember the game Kingmaker & did anyone ever finish a game while following the rules (or even just understand the rules)? It’s a board game of the War of the Roses and I think they tried too hard to try and force the game to follow history. I played it as a kid and remembered it fondly enough to track down a copy a couple years ago. Trying to play it again proved to me that it’s fun but impossible to finish without some house rules.

After a week at a professional conference unrelated to tabletop gaming, I ended up trying to reimagine conference sessions in the context of a D&D world. I think they all would have ended up as free-for-all brawls. There were definitely times I felt that rolling for initiative was called for.

Attending the conference and I know I should be social but there are too many people and I don’t already know them. Gonna sit on this bench until the next session and hope nobody notices me.

I still gotta visit the bird site for my daily fix. Today, I need some from the wonderful Alex the Honk (twitter.com/AlexTheHonk/media).

Well, I didn't die. My party revived me. Though, I did have a massive wild magic incident with a total of 11 surges (rolled a 2 on the surge chart). They may be regretting reviving me.

Hmm. Beginning to wonder if it's a bad thing that I'm already exhausted and haven't even started _packing_ for . Someday I will have a vacation.

Playing D&D tomorrow. We're headed into a gladiator style fight w/a construct that, if it kills you, sends your soul to the nine hells. Our goliath barbarian is already at 5 HP fm a prev fight. Fight is to free a slave fighter by killing her so we can reincarnate her (as her own widow - setup involved) as a free person w/the wealth she has earned so she will guide us through the fire plane to free a dwarven god. I'm certain I will have a wild magic surge at an inopportune moment tomorrow. πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈβ€‹πŸ§™β€‹

Got a chance to play with this beauty at work yesterday. This working Osborne 1 portable microcomputer was donated to us and I’m the lucky one who gets to test it and look at the files on the 5.25 floppies. A bit more work before I’ll be ready to create a blog post for out departmental blog.

FEWER MURDER CABINS AVAILABLE IN THE WOODS AS "TINY HOUSE MOVEMENT" CONVERSIONS CONTINUE

"We've painted ivy and birds on all the rusty farm implements that came with the place," said millennial Austin. "Sure, the old guy at the gas station keeps telling us we're doomed every time we bike by, but you know, isn't everyone?"

The local disfigured giant in stained overalls and identity-obscuring facewear was unavailable for comment.

I’m a community person. This is what I want to do. I want to talk/fuss/debate/argue etc about what works for us and build them.

I want to create tools that help and edify the lives of marginalized people.

I want to build cool shit that people use in their actual lives and doesn’t make them conform to anyone’s particular perspective on how social media should be used.

I want to do this everyday. And I want us to do it together.
