Pinned toot

Hey people who write, anyone else interested in starting a writers group? We have a few people now but always looking for more to help us get off the ground.

Theres no pressure its just to give us soft deadlines and accountability to keep practicing and get some critique and help each other out. Probably discussions online once a fortnight or so but in a way thats persistent so it can be added to, with timezones and stuff its not always easy to meet at the same time exactly

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

"they suck so I don't need to get their pronouns right" is blatant transphobia, even if it comes from another trans person who is doing the misgendering.

@mxsiege don't reply to serious posts with shitposts, don't reply to non-lewd posts with lewd posts

Here's a take: Media designed to manipulate people is unsuitable for children who might be more susceptible to that sort of thing. As such, all advertisements are unsuitable for children and should not be shown in public.

following on from the gaslighting talk, there is a general trend of people cynically co-opting the clinical language of trauma and abuse to try and win petty interpersonal squabbles with posters they dislike, and it's pretty disgraceful behaviour that should be condemned far more imo

@ackthrice Very coherent. I've had similar thoughts myself.

In a world where your average individual had more agency over their environment, mindfulness would probably be about understanding what is causing your stress so you can take the best steps to rectify the cause. But since so few have that luxury, it's becomes more about trying make a space for yourself to help preserve yourself through a stressful environment.

Hot take re:mindfulness 

I'm sure i have more thoughts on this but they aren't very coherent atm

Last time I post about this so as not to continually spam my instance but just want to give it one more chance on the federated timeline.

We're starting a writers group for people to motivate and critique each others work, loosely organised around meeting every couple of weeks and chatting between times. Any type of writing and any experience welcome. DM me and I can give you links!

Got to play some Impetus again, it's a very nice system, got 2 games in in about 4 hours this afternoon. Loving 6mm, I now have 3 armies and can keep them all in one biscuit tin together!

Hey so we have four of us now, gonna remake the post to get it out on the fedi tl and see if there is anyone else interested too. In the meantime, any ideas about a platform for sharing stuff and for meeting up?

As much as I dislike google, docs seems pretty ideal, is there a foss alternative? I've been looking at riot.im for the discussion meetups, which is matrix based and has persistent chat if you miss thediscussion or want to add to it later

You've one foot in the maelstrom One on this earthly plane
While in that blasted house of yore The old ones rise again!

So Mother tell your children
Not to do what you have done
Don't spend your life in squamous love
In the house of a Great Old One

There is a house in New Orleans Where darkened rites are done
That mother plans to raise a brood To spawn a thousand young...

Witch House of the Rising Sun
(With apologies to both HP Lovecraft and the Animals....)

There is a house in New Orleans Where no one ever goes
The Whatelys live inside the manse And the eerie witch-light glows

The mother is a cultist
She worships Azathoth
Their daddy is an outer god
Known as Yog-Sothoth

Now the only thing a cultist needs Chalk circle and a book
To summon up blasphemous things Like the horror at Red Hook
