Pinned toot

This is my I guess. Been on masto for about 18 months 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:
An RPG based on the Jungle Book
A semi-portable solo kit for 6mm Impetus
Voice acting
Writing short spec fic stories

A few nights ago I had an awful dream that I was working at work but then when I finished work I just checked in as a patient and couldnt go home and when my next shift started I just got sectioned and made to work.

Maybe I need to find a different job

They justify this because we havent technically signed contracts yet despite knowing we cant realistically back out because we've had to void our current tenancies already and no way we would find somewhere else big enough for both of us that allows cats and would let us move in in two weeks.

Landlords are fucking parasitic bastards. Every last one of them.
We're moving at the end of the month and the landlord of the place we're moving into has arbitrarily decided to section off part of the property that we cant use drastically reducing the space without any reduction of rent or similar.

While there's only like 3 other submissions for that jam as yet, my entry is like 3 times longer than the next longest and I dont know if that is worrying or not...

I finished my entry for the Diceless RPG jam on itch! Submitted pretty early because I'm moving at the end of the month so free time is diminishing.

It's a tarot based semi-competitive story game about interfering with destiny.

I got my doot on and performed a dramatic reading of Spooky Scary Skeletons. I did not stop to think whether I *should*, because I was preoccupied with whether I *could*.

Guess who's had to call in sick to work because of insomnia again and is feeling shit about it 

Man thay class isnt even on my continent, but I did capoeira when I was a kid and it was amazing. I went back when I was at uni and even then I was too out of shape to keep up, now it would probably kill me. But its still amazing.

#PDX locals!

My #capoeira group is starting a beginners-only 10-class series on Saturdays, 12:30-2pm, starting 10/19.

We're a very welcoming group for anybody of any race, gender, orientation, age, body type, etc. No experience necessary, and no high-level students to be intimidated by during this series (at least until you're ready), but after 10 weeks you'll be ready to train with the regular group.

If you or someone you know might be interested, DM me for details or with questions.

Picked up the rpg maker humble bundle, gonna make me some anime bullshit

Made some good progress with my entry for the diceless rpg game jam. But its ohe of those things where I feel like if I research just a little bit more i'll just realise I've independently run into someone's already extant game. So I wont research anymore :p

Can anyone give examples of "traditional" RPGs (in this case, let's say that "traditional" = "with GM") that aren't about adventure and/or investigation?

There might well be, but I always tend to think of games that are essentially about a group of people going on "adventures" (even if that means investigation and/or solving a mystery, a la Trail/Call of Cthulhu)...

Hey. We all know medical debt is a big problem in the USA.

Wanna do something about it?

Here's a charity that buys medical debt and forgives it in a way that keeps the people who owe that debt from owing taxes on having that debt forgiven. ripmedicaldebt.org/

Tell your friends. Tell your family. Tell people on the bus or train. Donate in your most racist and entitled relative's name and tell them you did it. :blobyeengrin:

Lewd, bondage mention sorta 

lord give me the Serenity to not respond to my mentions, the Courage to know i am always right online, and the WIsdom to know that everyone who disagrees is a jabroni

I'm trying to come up with a story involving Intelligence Agencies from several contemporary/near future African countries (I haven't decided which ones yet) attempting to work together.

Unfortunately, much as I enjoy spy stories, I can't think of anything actively involving African nations (except perhaps as the cliché bad guys).

Does anyone know of a any interesting source I could use? Either reality or fiction.

So i got an itch.io account, now to finish some stuff to put up on it >_<

Part of why we say "solidarity not charity" is because the way charity is typically presented gives moral superiority to the givers - and often, moral inferiority to the receivers (or sometimes "takers," if they decide to be particularly transparent about it)

Truisms like "it is better to give than to receive" implicitly contain "it is wrong to receive help." It's wrong to ask for the support you need, to want it, even to accept it when offered. Panhandling, for instance, is often portrayed not just as shameful, but immoral - even greedy

Solidarity, and especially mutual aid, are meant to reject that dichotomy. Everyone at Food Not Bombs eats together, volunteers and otherwise, and talks to each other. Our Free Store puts "it's free because it's yours" all over its reading material - it's not a gift, not a blessing, not charity. And that makes *such* a big difference

Impressive how ASDA have managed to reduce their use of plastic but massively increase waste. Their chinese food now comes with no hard plastic lid so you have to throw the box away rather than reusing it which they are touting as reducing plastic waste...
