I try not to regret selling any board games, but I don't always succeed. I've regretted parting with my copy of Renegade Legion: Centurion, one of the first wargames I played (around age 12-14), so I bought a used copy.

One of the joys of buying used games is finding treasures like this in the box: handwritten Centurion stats on the back of what's either someone's homework or a piece of scrap paper their parents gave them.

It’s good to see engagement and use growing here. It would be healthy to have a social platform free of the billionaire oligopoly and the corporate ad folks, don’t you think?

The Uktar Atoll has it all! A halfling village! An improbably high shipwreck! A crazy whirlpool! An eerie stepped pyramid! A strange ruined temple! Skull Tower! Pirate Landing! Jungles! ADVENTURE!

My current bio reads "I’m a good curler. I have confidence. Let’s have fun!"
I never played curling and am certainly terrible at it.
It's Satsuki Fujisawa's note to herself, as she captained the Japanese women’s curling team at the Olympics, as explained here:

I find this message both silly and deeply moving. Human.
I cannot think of a better random quote.

That said, maybe I should write a real bio as a result of my #TwitterMigration

Got laid off today! Whoo!

If you're still on mastodon.social or mastodon.online, you're about to lose track of tabletop.social. It's for the safety of our comrades: this is the quieter, kinder part of the fedi where we walk away from instances that can't or don't control harassers.

I know a lot of you on mastodon.social and .online are newcomers who landed there because so many other instances have closed to new accounts. Please take this time to explore the fediverse and find somewhere with more reliable moderation.

I find myself periodically re-reading this from @anildash and I think it is essential reading, especially as we see a rise in smaller communities trying to avoid the mistakes of their former host.

Tip for people who want to get into making ttrpg zines. There are troves of public domain and CC high res scans of medieval texts out there. We did this on "To Elfland and Back" and had a blast using all this amazing art to make something new. Check it out:

TTRPG Nerd Speak 

Anyone in #TTRPG land play #Fate or #PBTA or #BladesInTheDark or anything *besides* #DND?

Subquestion: Anyone have trouble finding a group willing to play anything *other* than D&D?

Made a font for your cyber adventures.
I like making fonts that are less legible for reading and make creating cryptic symbols easier.
The big red symbols on the left say "ancient". On the right is says "futures". Just fun.
It's PWYW on hinokodo.itch.io for a week.
