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

On my patreon (link in bio) I have a monthly newsletter highlighting the best of that month's releases. There's so much great stuff out this week that it's already longer than some full month listings!

This essay by @jdp23 is one of the best histories of Mastodon I've read. It covers a lot of what happened here in depth.

This is your reminder to have fun with social media.

Self Promotion, Creator Day 

For , all my print and play games on Itch.io are marked up 420%!

They're all optional donations so they're still free, lol. Anti-Act is an exception because it's not a game, or anything really.

So... Who has a VPS company that is:

A) accepting new clients for instances currently.

B) actually responds to support requests in a timely manner.

C) allows/humors some degree of custom configuration.

I'm so close to getting one setup only to have the company go awol early in the week...

self-promotion #TTRPG 

I got to do an Actual Play session!

I have been playing TTRPGs since the 90s (anyone remember Amber?!) but rarely get invited to do these, so I'm stoked.

Plus the system is so clean - 4D6 with enough mechanisms the structure gives me guide-rails but enough freedom that you feel like the collaborative narrative is the core.

Anyhoo... if you're bored, check it out. Paula Deming GM'd and Danny Quach, Ross Connell, and Mandi Hutchinson are awesome.

Everyone you mention in a Direct message will get the toot.

This is not a dm, it can involve more than one person.

If you dont want to have someone receive the toot, dont mention them (remove the first @ for example).

Again, because it is not intuitive, Everyone you mention will get the Direct Message

Hello! Seems like a good time for an . I’m one of those who recently arrived from that other place, but I suspect I would’ve been here sooner if I’d known there was such a thing as a tabletop instance. I retired at the end of 2019, and since then it’s been playing board games, learning R, and finding new music.

I’m already enjoying the low-key feeling of this place, and the constant stream of boardgame toots…glad to be here!

Hi all, I've been playing TTRPGs for a few years now, but still consider myself a relative newbie as I read the books more than I get an opportunity to play.

I'm a fan of exploring rule systems and settings, a lot of oneshots over campaigns.

My current favourites are:

I hope you all got what you wanted in this week
