Pinned toot

Content Warning / CW 

Also it is a fabulous tool.

You can add them/remove them/change them on every toot.

You can make jokes.

You can give your toot context.

You can tell it is a thread, or where you are in a thread.

You can derail a thread and give the original poster a chance to not read your ramblings.

You can tell secrets, only interested people will hear.

Content Warning / CW 

Use them, use them a lot.

If you think about 'does this need a CW', then it does.

Things you dont want to show to your kids, your mom, your sister in law, they need CW.

Things that are a phobia, food, blood, body horror, heavy topic, politics, death, health related stuff, upsetting story, they need a CW.

This is also not a 'maybe'.
To keep the place nice, we all need to make an effort.
We need to be deliberate about giving people a chance to opt in on those topic.

Thanks

Hello world 

Hello Fediverse,

We are a small, new, specialised mastodon instance.
We hope to be another safe and welcoming place for both new comers and existing mastodon users.

This is our thread.

Turns out there is an easy way to figure out who's ok with nazi iconography.

that thread about DARVO 

I said earlier that I'd talk about this, so.

It's important to know what DARVO is and how it's used as a tool to bully people into silence/complicity in bad behavior.

DARVO is an acronym. It stands for:

Deny
Attack
Reverse Victim and Offender.

It is a technique that is used by abusive people to cover up their abuse.

It is incredibly common. Knowing how to spot it is key.

DARVO, end of thread, an offer 

If you need someone to talk to who is not going to judge you for your behavior, past or present, but who will instead try to help you untangle your thoughts and get to a point where you are safe and healthy and can begin addressing what's wrong, please feel free to drop me a line. I can't promise a lot of support, but I will do what I can, even if it's simply listening.

discussion of antisemitism 

I spent way too long looking into the question of "is the lich's phylactery antisemitism?"

And then a while longer: "was it malicious, who did it, and when?"

The answers turned out to be "sorta maybe" and "no; not Gygax; somewhere around 2e, but then again with 5e and that was worse."

I'm a white hetero cis-male that lives in the USA.

Using Emacs, I write software, TTRPG session reports, short essays, documentation, open letters, and sometimes a bit of poetry.

Most of the non-software writing is on [my personal writing](takeonrules.com). I also tend to charter up working groups in the FOSS [Samvera](samvera.org) project.

Hi everyone, this is my !

While I do like and play boardgames (recent favorite: ), I'm
mostly here for tabletop wargaming ( and ) and
. After painting a lot at the end of last year, I've now
hit a bit of a slump. So I'm gonna try to regularly post works in progress and other pictures
to help with my painting laziness!

My other masto accounts are @floi (main) and
@floi (Magic the Gathering).

I'd been either too depressed or too busy to notice or crow about it, but there's a second WFRP book out that I got to write for. The Careers in Appendix I are all mine! Quite pleased with the halfling Badger Rider if I do say so myself.

The rest of the book is also really good, packed with lore, cool weapons like specialised dwarf/elf firearms, and generally just expands on the Empire a whole load.

So yeah, I'm a bit pleased with that.

Hi folks! Here is my

I've been into the tabletop war gaming hobby a year now but I'd always wanted to get more into it ever since I was a kid (so I've wanted this for 30 years)!

I paint and play Warcry, AoS, SoBH, Frostgrave, HeroQuest, DnD, and ...Hero Kids! I'm very interested in SAGA and I'm super excited for Ravenfeast. I also dabble in terrain building.

I've been looking for a place to post the progress of my projects and get inspired. Super excited to be here! Yay!

Good evening everyone,
Just a little from lil ol' me.

I've been playing since the 80's, 35+ years forever DM/GM, but currently running a pathfinder2e campaign as well as a Call of Cthulhu game. Also love board games, puzzles, alternate reality games and enjoy the odd PC adventure game occasionally.

I have just started to learn the game of Go/Wei Qi/Baduk ... and I'm pretty bad at it 😅​

Nice little community you have here and looking forward to taking part!

Hi everyone! I'm coming over from the fosstodon instance. It's a fine place, but it reminds me too much of work. I'm a huge fan of all tabletop games, though RPGs and Card Games are probably what I play the most. I'm looking forward to being a part of this community and talking about nerd stuff with all of you!

Socializing is pretty impossible now days, so I'm glad to have found an online community that is excited about the things I'm excited about.

Hi, all! First-time Mastodonian and lover of games, design, and game design. Before COVID I played a lot of 5e and board games, and now I have about eight month's worth of hunger for game-related content in any form!

Lately I've been working on a non-Euclidean dungeon with funky physics and weird gravity. Very inspired by games like Antechamber and HyperRogue as well as that one Ocarina of Time room where you go through the twisty hallway. Excited to chat with you all!
