Wenn ich schon schaue, wo ich Aufkleber machen lasse, kann ich auch noch ein paar weitere Motive basteln.
Lewd, video chat, tech, recs welcome
OK, so given the social distancing, I'm looking into ah, secure technologies for lewd chats.
So far the best I've found for one on one chatting is signal. Built in, good quality, encrypted but only phones, and only two people.
Today got a recommendation for https://jitsi.riot.im/ which looks like it can do more people, but I don't know if its end-to-end encrypted. On the other hand, its not google or Microsoft so snooping less likely?
So soon some of us might be self isolating with a lot of time on our hands or not being able to get to our regular gaming group. I want you all to know that there is a whole world of #solo games that you can #PlayFromHome in this time.
That is correct, games that you play alone are a thing so come with me now into the wonderful world of solo gaming and lets play alone together.
We will start with some solo RPG games:
So, we're going to run a Session 0 for a #PlayFromHome RPG using Discord.
Let's see how that works.
Is there anyone around here that could help me coming up with everyday things that antifascist groups have done against fascists? It's for an alternative set of prompts/ideas for my story game "Deeds, not Words", so I'm interested in physical feats, subterfuge/sabotage operations, and communication wins:
See the last page for the current prompts (which are for English suffragettes).
If those things really happened in reality, that's a plus! Feel free to boost.

BTW English Eerie is not "free", strictly speaking, it's Pay What You Want. But you can get it for free to try it out, and then throw some money at the author if you end up liking it.
Bonus (not designed by me).
If a diary/epistolary/journaling kind of horror story sounds interesting, check out English Eerie:
It's played with a regular deck of cards and almost feels like a creative writing exercise, but it's very fun! It comes with 4 or 5 scenarios which give you an initial situation and prompts.
Which other solo games do you like?
Free games (designed by me) that you can play by yourself. Some of these you can _also_ play with other people, and should work well online.
The 5 whys: a game about uncovering how a big failure happened, going backwards (think Memento)
FIRE: a game about a child escaping adults (think Ico and The Last Guardian).
Conspiracy: a conspiracy thriller game (think The Da Vinci Code).
