Time for an . Hi, I'm a guy/he from France. As a hobby, I'm
a Role-player (mostly GM), Storyteller, Improv actor. Also, GM-ing for children.

I'm quite on the narrative side.

I have recently published my first DriveThruRPG product and I'm working on two more. More self-promotion later :)

@splott Hum, it doesnt do anything specifically beside being an informarive list I guess.

I think some people on are not quite happy with the strong moderation stance we have, so these could places for them to have an alternative (or main) account.

I am mostly trying to help people find each other in this somewhat challenging concept of federated network, while acknowledging we are not the be all end all of thr hobby.

Mastodon please help me with something. I'm a #trans guy with practically no trans guy friends. I know nothing about trans guys. I only know about James.

I could really do with some transmasc and trans men friends so.... hi?

Boosts encouraged 💜

Hey if you've recently jumped into the server because of the trashfire bird, do think about chipping in a few $ to pay for server and namespace costs.

Twitter was free because it was selling your data and manufacturing rage to keep your eyes on the ads. Mastodon won't do that, but if we don't support the site it will go down.

I've thrown in 5€ a month, and if this becomes the space for tabletop folks, I'll throw in more. Think about doing the same if you have some cash to spare!

I'm currently reworking character/group/setting creation for my _Divine Comedians_.

Currently looking at how to make collaborative creation of the Relationship Map fun and fast-moving. Does anyone know of games that already handle this well?

Reminder to please CW anything to do with politics and particularly “look at the awful things these right-wingers are doing”. Being able to choose when and how to engage is important and makes a big difference to the overall mood of the timeline.

And please don’t boost politics posts with no CWs either - I’ve been seeing a lot of that recently from new arrivals

Anyone have the technical know-how to set up an apolitical India-centric Mastodon server? I’d happily chip in. 🙏🏽 🇮🇳

I just realized that 2022 has begun! That's a good opportunity to resume work on Divine Comedians! After playtesting, I'm redesigning pretty much everything, but the new experience should be much smoother. Hopefully.

Anybody else working on something ?

Remember, if you have been working from home and your work decides that they have to end that and you don't want to, make sure to frame everything in terms of them changing the relationship. Not 'I am not willing to come work in the office', it is 'I am saddened by your unwillingness to work with me in a reasonable way.'

Always put the responsibility/blame on them. They are making a change and it is their responsibility to deal with any problems from it. Don't let them pretend otherwise.

Alright, I've started my 1:1 campaign for my kid based on / !

Except my kid want it it to take place in a Space Communist Utopia, so it's Percy Jackson aboard the Enterprise, in spaaaaaace!

This is an extremely solid creator manifesto.

@neilhimself @pennypyro One of the best lessons I have learnt is always assume the audience is smarter than you.

I own too many PDFs that I just can't enjoy reading on a screen. I have recently attempted to get one printed with Lulu.

It takes about 15 minutes of work (essentially to design the covers and the back), the quality is really good (note for self: next time, add bleed manually), it's about 2x-3x cheaper than ordering a hardcopy, delivery was actually 2x faster than ordering from DriveThru (might be slower than Amazon, but I'm not buying from them).

I'll reproduce the experiment!

I just realized that:
- I'm a fan of ;
- my kid is a fan of ;
- my kid enjoys a simple ;
- I don't own yet.

One of these established facts needs to change.

I'm currently working on the Gameplay of .

I'm down to:
- 5 Player Moves;
- 7 GM Moves.

Unless I'm missing something, these 12 Moves should be sufficient to cover everything during Gameplay, including improving/modifying your (godlike) character, recovering from wounds and curses, resurrecting thought-to-be-dead antagonists, etc.

It's a pretty interesting exercise in minimalism!

I'm making pretty good progress on my of petty immortals, .

A first draft of Chapter I (creating the setting and the characters) is online: .

Feedback welcome!

I'm trying to find a specific Indian movie, and can't remember the title. A respected older actor plays a former gang boss who's released from prison after many years, and returns home, only to find that his old life just will not let him go. The poster features this man, iron grey hair, business suit with the shirt collar open a button to show off the gold chain he's wearing, standing in front of a skyscraper window with the city at night visible behind him. Circa 2015. That's all I got. Help?

…and a growing compilation of orgs who deleted their posts when they saw they were being called out by the pay gap bot:

Looking to get a new ttrpg? choose someone from the indie sphere whos work you like a lot, and then go and buy one of their older games that you haven't yet.

Getting more support for older games could really help relieve the pressure of having to constantly be creating.
