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

the "danger of a filter bubble" is that you might, through tremendous effort, construct a useful, readable and enjoyable incoming flow without turds bobbling in it

this idea is strongly objected to by the turds

Gonna make a bajillion dollar-pounds by marketing mindfulness to start-ups as "Grindfulness"

I am immune suppressed, unable to make antibodies from vaccines, always masking & sitting outdoors. An isolated life.

An unmasked person coughed near me two weeks ago, & I developed pneumonia. In recovery, but slow.

When I see people who mask, I see love in action.

Love is a verb.

transphobia 

I've seen enough. I've gone on and blocked all of qoto.org; if you find your home on the internet somewhere that refers to my existence as "the trans debate," you're not a friend, peer, or colleague of mine.

"The fediverse needs critical mass to survive!"

I've been here since 2017. Sometimes it's been a quiet place. Sometimes it's fast-paced. But it's had enough critical mass for survival for a long while.

Now what it needs it to become a _better_ place, not bigger.

Safer, nicer, friendlier, more welcoming to those at risk. A hasty push for more "critical mass" is likely to make these communities more aggressive, less forgiving, and less sustainable in the long term.

Still a couple of slots open for players and unlimited for spectators in my remote

Step into the shoes of a base commander working with your team to use the intel your troops provide to relay the best orders. Either as humanity's defence against an alien invader or as the vengeful sword of the xenosians, retaliating for the exploitation of thei home planet by human corps.

Starting on monday (5th) and one turn per day, so no huge commitment. Discord based. DM me for details!

So I am running a trial game for my remote wargame/larp, starting next monday, one turn per day.

Scifi setting.
Humanity has made it to the stars and as they do, corporations started strip mining planets, unfortunately some occupants didn't take kindly to this and the xenosians have launched a counter-offensive on earth.

You will play as a general receiving intel and photos from the battlefield and making strategic decisions in cooperation with your team.
DM me for more info/discord invite

*ahem* BUY MY BOOKS!

Healing Rites
The most powerful mage in England has a stroke and loses xeir magic. Join them on a journey of recovery and coming to terms with disability, with cool enbies and unusual adventures!

The Dream Eater
A novella about a fantasist who can project his imagination, until something starts stealing ideas out of his head
ackthrice.itch.io/the-dream-ea

A selection of other stories and ttrpg material are available, on itch too

Apparently I've come up with the only game that's a better spectator sport than to play

I'm thinking of running a 'distant command' sci fi wargame. Two groups of players in separate chats who only see the table via maps and model's eye view photos relayed to them (probably some options for aerial recon shots as well) along with unit status reports etc. They decide on orders and send them through to me to fulfil as close as possible, with as near to simultaneous activation as possible. Probably a turn a day to give me time to keep up and relay reports.

Would you be interested?

Hmm to get to know me seems an interesting idea. Here are mine in no particular order:

1. Lord of the Rings - JRR Tolkien

2. The Crystal Singer - Anne McCaffrey

3. Imajica - Clive Barker

4. Tiny Pieces of Skull - Roz Kaveney

5. The Secret Diary of Adrian Mole - Sue Townsend

6. Jaka's Story - Dave Sim

7. The Killing Moon - NK Jemisin

Very very quiet day at work. Perfect opportunity to hide in the lounge and write porn for kindle unlimited 😂 might as well get paid twice for the time
