Words of wisdom from Jeff Reints:
"Campaign worlds, whether published or just notes scrawled in some DM's binder, contain a lot of material that most players honestly just don't give a crap about."

Mountain Dew Merry Mash-Up, the latest limited edition flavor, is not great. Probably won’t be buying any more of this.

This week is transgender awareness week. Here’s some tips on being an ally to your transgender friends and family members:

* Use people’s correct pronouns. If someone asks for they/them use they/them, if they ask for ze/zir use ze/zir , etc

* Use people’s preferred name, not their legal one. Name changes are expensive and come with legal fees and are not always affordable.

* Don’t be a bystander if someone calls someone a slur, speak out and say something.

cw: last night’s Cthulhu game, character death 

Should- should I tell my players that the prophecy they received is couched in metaphor and not meant literally? Or do I let them try to stick their hands in a snake’s mouth to try and fulfill what they think the prophecy is?

Just refreshed myself on the adventure for tomorrow night’s Cthulhu Invictus session. Lots of meetings with potential patrons, a fight with ghouls, possibly learning some spells.

Well crap, now I really am thinking about running D&D.

I may have made a mistake in telling people who want me to run D&D that they need to challenge and defeat the players of my Cthulhu game in a “Thunderdome Battle” to free up my schedule to run D&D.

Heaven help me, I’m feeling the urge to run Dungeons and Dragons again.

cw: rant, negative about my day job, butts as metaphors 

Preparing a speech to give before my next regular Invictus session: “Hey players, last session we had some issues with two or more of you talking at once and fighting for my attention as GM. My hearing is shot, and if you talk over one another I can’t understand anybody. Please respect each other’s spotlight time and my inability to process two voices at once, and if someone is speaking, wait for them to finish before announcing your action.”

Sound good? Need anything?

And bombarded with sexist remarks at the office Halloween potluck about how I can’t have made the dish I brought myself since men “don’t” cook. Yay.
