I have just bought and GMed _Labyrinth, the Adventure Game_. So far, I love it.

It's an , nearly ruleless designed to be picked up and played by beginners.

Today I published my first video game (you might have seen the 2D version of this; that was a prototype). It's a chill cross-country skiing game. It's multiplatform and free, check it out!

It's not about speed and racing, but about enjoying the moment and being in nature. It has controller support (including vibration!) and a "night mode" to ski at night.

Shout out to @godotengine for the amazing engine + IDE + community 😄

has anyone out here also transitioned away from a tech career? what was your experience? what industry did you switch to? (feel free to RT)

The window is closing on our ability to move this floor loom from New York to an anarchist collective in North Carolina. Please consider boosting. There are more critical mutual aid efforts going around, but if you can, anything here would help. gf.me/u/zinitg

If you need one, I dreamt up a .

After 25 years, the Great Steam War is almost over. A last contingent of 1,000 teenage girls, freshly drafted, boards the last automated train/training camp towards the front. The trip/training in this broken down mobile hell will last 6 months and will bring them into enemy territory months after the cease-fire. After that, these semi-veterans, will have to walk back home through hostile civilian land.

How well will they cope?

Google have suspended Element in the Play Store without notifying us; we're reaching out to find out what's going on. Apologies for the inconvenience; in the interim there's f-droid.org/en/packages/im.vec but it's a few versions behind. We'll post updates here.

And to start the week-end, Google Play has removed Element (and apparently other Matrix clients) from the store, without additional information.

Hey all. Do me a favour?

Just take a minute and find a low-follower content creator you like, and compliment, amplify and/or financially support them.

I'm designing a post-industrial setting in which feudalism has returned but, in many cases, guilds have more authority than the feudal lord or the local church.

Cities are divided in zones that belong to guilds. My PCs are currently in the printer's quarter of Strasbourg, for instance. In each zone, all permanent inhabitants are guild members or clergy.

I wonder how taverns and inns fit in this society. Do they belong to guilds? Are they embassies? Situated between quarters?

We’re all familiar with free libraries, right? Meet free blockbuster video. Perfect for dropping burned DVD’s that you torrented off the innerwebs into, I mean, erm donating your legitimately purchased movies you not longer watch now that streaming has become a thing.

In short, white people: Be race traitors not because you feel sorry for poor helpless POC and want to "save" us because eurgh no, but because your humanity, your freedom, your and your children's futures, and life itself on this planet depend on dismantling whiteness. It is a fight for your survival, too.

The tobacco companies were the first ones to really succeed at population-scale misinformation through manipulation & discrediting of scientific results. Then the oil companies saw climate change coming and had decades to hone their own operation with everything they learned from that, and spent that time taking control of international policymaking with well-placed corruption to solidify control against even a strongly contradictory academic scientific consensus

Happy Yearly Reboot everyone!
Let's hope that the new version is a bit more user-friendly than the previous.

Well, I wrote a minimal introduction to _The Parable of the Hunter_ (working title).

It's on reddit, atm: reddit.com/r/worldbuilding/com .
