Another thousand-ish words. Writing is hard. I deserve beer and kiss

While its central thing is psychosis, it's hard not to see parallels with other mental illnesses too. Parts of the game felt like depression/anxiety dialled up to extremely uncomfortable levels. Maybe coincidence, maybe there's some common root between them, but goddamn either way it was a visceral experience.

After starting play on release day, I finally finished Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice this evening. Not that it's a difficult game, it's just... It's a bit like reading a Cormac McCarthy novel. You can't deny it's well-written and compelling, but holy shit do you sometimes need a cup of tea and a hug between chapters.

@signalstation I generally give up and just have bartenders with really similar names. Making it a running joke can be quite entertaining.

Hi! I'm conducting research for my MA thesis and looking for participants to take part in a 30-45 minute online interview on Irish pro-choice activism and social media. Please feel free to share 😊😊😊 GRMA

I woke up to an e-mail from someone telling me my board game is really cool. Is this what happiness feels like? It feels really good.

it would be against many sites terms of service for me to advocate targeted political violence today, therefore, I won't do it

@Sharr0w He had over 50 days since the leak to prevent it, and did nothing. Democrats have had 50 *years* since Roe to prevent its overturn, and they did nothing. He's so full of shit.

@Sharr0w Never did get into streaming RPGs like this. Then again it's fucking impossible to find a group that's free at the same time even every fortnight

EP1 of Rime Of The Frostmaiden starts in 10mins on our Twitch!

The party comes together for the first time as a string of grisly murders sweeps the Ten Towns.

Join our talented DM Craig as he pits his players against the perils of the Frozen North!

It's weird how songs you hated as a kid start to become enjoyable once the nostalgia fully beds in

I was barely aware of the 80s but I miss them

Hey friends, if you can pass this on to any Tabletop people who might use it, I'd appreciate it!

I've been doing voiceovers since 2015, but I played my first game of D&D in 1991.

I've voiced for Guinness, The UN and a lot of others, but not much in #TTRPG area.

If you have a project, I'd love to voice it for like 20% of my normal fee.

@twwombat Oh don't worry, there's a *lot* of that going around. Personally I get it worst when I see someone describing the pandemic in the past tense when it's still killing people

Following an entertaining and inspirational "writers meeting", I went and wrote a sentence so unwholesome that I felt a bit queasy reading it back to myself, so I think this next project is really going in the right direction :)

@posiputt I created some cybernetically enhanced geese for a TTRPG a couple of years back. I called them Jagergeese and their feathers were fortified with metal and razor sharp, and their beaks opened vertically as well as horizontally to deploy steel cables for ensnaring trespassers.
