Reposting my pinned . Been on masto for about 2 years or so, found myself tooting most about tabletop stuff so here I am.

I am forever jumping from one thing to another so dont expect much in the way of consistency from me.

Currently working on:
Improving my skills in Blender 3d
(See my thingiverse link in my profile)
Various mini printing and painting projects
Writing short spec fic stories

I happen to believe that antisemitism is deeply connected to transphobia, homophobia, racism and misogyny, that all the animating hate of the growing Fascist movement in the USA is one ideology that needs defeating. But you don't have to. You can just be in solidarity across experiences

Me: "I abhor violence and tyranny"

Me, while clearing the patio with a weed burner: " Aha yes, all who oppose me will wither and burn. See the ashen fields of my wrath!"

there are actually no colours in England other than grey, beige, brown, and olive drab. Anything brighter is declared "a bit spicy" by public health officers, and torn down after a few weeks

Baldur's gate 2 minor spoilers? 

Hexxat has been the worst. It's in character for her at least, but she's so useless as a party member that despite how interesting I found her quest, after the boss kicked my ass a couple of times she got killed by a troll and I left her there lmao.

Also the spirits that want the tomb opened makes sense, but them wanting the tomb opened and then attacking me for opening it, does not, not the way it's presented anyway...

Baldur's gate 2 

I get the urgency of characters who joined you for a particular quest wanting to leave if you don't engage with their quests but the way its implemented is infuriating.
Like Minsc nagging you about some random quest all the time is a pain, though at least he doesn't threaten to leave over it.

But anyone nagging me *in the middle of another quest* is ridiculous. "Hey Faun, I know one of your old friends has been cursed and keeps dying, but I'm gonna bounce if you don't help me".

Something that people who have never been poor don't understand: Being broke _is_ a job.

Not having regular access to housing or the means to add convenience to your life makes just existing within capitalist-friendly car-oriented cities a constant chore.

The lurking fear whenever I research crabs: Most crabs are very cool but every image I find has like a 1/20 chance of triggering my arachnophobia and making me cry

I need to go to the doctor to get some meds changed because of side effects

But the side effects are preventing me going

And so the cycle continues ♻️

Deliberately avoiding calling it a game because while there are a few minor puzzles, the emphasis for me is more on interaction and choosing where the story takes you/you take the story.

You can 'complete' it v quickly, but my hope is that people will want to explore and find out whats happening and talk to people etc

Finished the first NPC of my interactive fiction project :transgender_meeple:

Well as always there's probably some obvious thing I've missed but that's a beta reader problem lmao

An APATHEIST doesn't care if God exists or not.

The word is a portmanteau of "apathy" and "theism".

:blobthinking: believing that people have True Names - hokey but understandable

:blob_gnikniht: believing that each person has a single True Name - unduly limiting but not impossible

:hot_shit: :oh_no: believing that a person's One True Name is whatever a government registry has on their records - the perfect blend of authoritarian and bureaucratic

@Stoori the New Roman Times, with such headlines as:
These 11 Moderate Plebians See a Rome That Others Don't
-- For its latest focus group, Times Opinion spoke with 11 middle-of-the-road peasants about culture war issues: Christianity, Gaul, and the senatorial class.

Are We Sure Rome Is Not At War In Asia?
-- If we have so far avoided calling it war, maybe that's only because we've become so uncertain of the meaning of the word.

Paganism Made a Faustian Bargain With Celebrity Culture. Now It's Paying the Price.
-- How did modern paganism lose Rome v. Jesus Christ of Nazareth? An answer lies in Constantine's Edict of Milan.
