Mastodon provides several tools for managing your timeline.

You can add notes to any profile. Why did you follow them? Are they a repeat offender? Remind yourself.

You can disable boosts on a per-user basis. Maybe you want to see a user's posts, but not everything that interests them.

You can temporarily mute an account while they get something out of their system.

You filter out posts with specific words, hashtags or phrases.

And when all else fails: block, unfollow, or mute indefinitely.

@dmtales They have been in three fights so far, one was a runaway dino in the streets and could have gone badly (they never understood how badly), the next was a rolled up encounter with some ghouls (and they ran away when the big zombie arrived), and now they are on their way up the tower where the pterafolk has been rolling badly so far :D

@dmtales none, so far! But the pterafolk failed their grapples to toss someone off the spire last session...

@Undead_Merchant I think that makes for more fun - also avoids certain elements of metagaming some players may have. I had them roll up without knowing what the others rolled too, just to see how it worked out. They don't have a cleric, but between them they have enough healing and other support magics, I'm not worried at all :)

@Undead_Merchant cool. I got five, with various levels of experience too. One brand new. Elven monk, tiefling druid, elven bard, yuan-ti warlock, half-orc fighter/warlock. They didn't know which module when they rolled up characters, only "jungel'y and dungeoncrawl'y".

@Undead_Merchant middle is good, I think. I run my game online, 2-3 hour sessions. How many players have you got?

Several of the cannons lined up outside the museum are from the mid-to-late 1700s, and can probably be found in the protocols :)

This is your reminder to test your cannons.

The photo is from a protocol of cannon testing from 1773. Titled "Artillery Versuche 1773", the books (we have several years of these) outline testing various cannons, depictions of the impact spread, and various measurements done.

Do you prefer homebrew or existing modules for your games? Or maybe a healthy mix?

I am still very much a n00b DM, and love having all the material ready in the official modules. Getting braver at adapting stuff to fit the group, but it's still a nice support.

The current 5e campaign I'm DMing is Tomb of Annihilation, having an absolute blast with it so far (4 sessions in - they are midway fighting their way up Firefinger).

I am just a small museum librarian who plays a lot of ttrpgs (and other games). I am currently a player in 2 5e campaigns and the DM of one. I also DM Vaesen, play in a Svavelvinter campaign, participate in a Masks run, and have just fallen in love with Mörk Borg after a super fun one-shot.

I will probably split my focus on sharing tingies and stuff about old books
