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:
* "Black Wolf", my game for dark fantasy. Basically a Call of Cthulhu 7th hack:
* RPG software, scenarios I've written, and more:
new dialup express instance blocks
another instance was setup by the admin of gamelibery.club and peervideo.club
catgirl.life (nazism, racism, queermisia, ableism, sexual art of minors, harassment etc)
these are all run by matrix07012
Fashy cunts currently harassing and deliberately misgendering a trans person.
r000t also has an account at infosec.exchange so I also recommend blocking that account too.
Some researcher have been scraping data from the fediverse, that include our instance, shy of 4000 posts.
They took the data without asking, published a paper and published the data, also without asking.
The data was used in a dubious way in their paper, which is flawed (cauliflowers?!).
A few people have worked hard on an open letter, which I signed
You can read it here:
(Do ask questions, but not before you read the letter please.)

The downside of automating everything: no one understands how anything works anymore or can fix it when it breaks down.
Ooh, look at that! It's a guide to learn how to do the page layout for RPGs:
I just found this on the RPGGeek forums, if you want to have a look: https://rpggeek.com/thread/2346006/resource-layout-and-grid
VVVVVV (the platformer) is now open source
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
Writing; call for stories; solarpunk
Just found out about a new anthology call for submissions. If you’ve got a solarpunk story set in the Asia-Pacific region, particularly if you’re from the Asia-Pacific region, please check it out!
Really informative breakdown of how After the War, a kickstarted RPG, ended up with a budget shortfall despite an apparently successful campaign. And good on Jason for making sure everybody (but him, sadly) still got paid above market rate. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/Jagash/after-the-war
As someone who creates ActivityPub services, it's often a puzzle to figure out exactly how someone else's service federates. Like, what does service X do when I send it a Delete/Note activity?
In an attempt to be a good citizen, I've drafted up a FEDERATION.md file for my fediverse event organizing service I'm working on. Here it is:
I've also started a meta-discussion about how we might start documenting this stuff generally:
Hey #dnd folx,

Please like and RT.
Hey Fediverse, is anyone good at making mods for Tabletop Simulator? I have a fragile, poor-condition copy of an elderly, rare board game. It’s not a good game, but it’s historically interesting and I would like it archived for the good of the world. I have the rules, the parts, and a flatbed scanner; what I don’t have is TTS mod experience or knowledge of the right way to lay out a zillion tiny cards on my scanner and then do I flip them over in place or mirror the layout to get the obverse?
