Some stuff I have made that might be of interest:

* "Deeds, not Words", a 3-player GM-less game about the amazing suffragettes, but generally about activism:

* "The poison of suspicion", a 2-player GM-less game about forgiveness and the meaning of life:
hardcorenarrativist.org/items/

* "Black Wolf", my game for dark fantasy. Basically a Call of Cthulhu 7th hack:

* RPG software, scenarios I've written, and more:

Hey everybody, it's the first of the month again! That means it's time for another post! Before I post the themes, I'd like to apologize for vanishing after the first challenge. Life happened and social media took a back seat. I hope everybody has been staying safe and healthy.

Here are the themes for : determined, invasive, and iconoclast.

Remember that the themes are completely open to interpretation.

I'm starting to turn my notes into the final text for Blazko, my upcoming game about strength in diversity (and killing nazis).

I'm hoping I will have a first version sometime in the next two weeks, but we'll see.

I wouldn't really call the game Forged in the Dark but a couple of details are certainly inspired by Blades in the Dark.

Oh EFFF.

Its three days until Bitbucket closes off Mercurial support. Suddenly urgent I find a migration pathway. Dammit.

(Suggestions and boosts very welcome. Not sure if best to migrate to git or another mercurial host. Use case is small (<100MB in most cases) repos with just my various laptops connected to them, used for backups/change tracking in various scientific projects.

Bitbucket gives unlimited 1 GB private repos to students an academics, which is why I went with them in the first place.

Hey there in light of anti-trans activist Graham Linehan getting banned from Twitter I strongly urge you to block his own fediverse server glindr.org that he said he’ll start using more

If I wasn't basically *stressed* because of the ridiculous amount of RPGs I have bought recently that I haven't even had the chance to *see*, I would buy the Black Lives Matter 2 Bundle:
drivethrurpg.com/product/31693

If nothing else, for War Birds (drivethrurpg.com/product/18802) and Winterhorn (drivethrurpg.com/product/20189).

Or, I don't know. Maybe I'll buy the bundle anyway 😓😓😓

WotC: What if all of these sapient species were not presented as subhuman?

Someones: But D&D isn't fun without violence!

Me: Whuh? Who said anything about taking violence out of the game?

Is #dnd about doing violence to the subhuman to you?

Oy.

As a tabletop role-playing gamer, I find myths of the subhuman lazy and boring.

As a Jew and white American aspiring anti-racist seeing what happens when myths of the subhuman become institutional policy, I find it fucking terrifying.
