I already have two players that voiced interested, but I'd like to add two more.

If you're interested, please get in touch.

is very hard, because I don't know yet what people want to hear.

I am here for the tabletop role playing game stuff. I'm refereeing an open table fantasy game in a "drunk harry potter in a fantasy world" like setting with a fun little system that is easy enough for newcomers to get and has enough depth for experienced folks to find interesting stuff in.

My refereeing style is "negotiated bricolage of ideas".

I sometimes blog rpg stuff at

Was a player in a game for the first time ever this weekend. It was fun!

Now, I am back at deliberating whether I should re-start my longrunning open table game campaign I put on halt late last year, or focus on the other campaign I started in between, or both, or something else?

I believe women. I believe Mandy Morbid. Her abuser cannot debate, intimidate, or manipulate me into silence. There is no place for abusers among us. #AbuseIsNotAGame #OSR

By the way: I am still looking for 1-2 nurse(s) as personal assistants 40h/week for one of my kids in Northern Berlin. (I‘ll pin this toot, boosts welcome.)

somethingaboutmaps.wordpress.c makes me think of @kensanata 's textmapper

(PS I found my copy of Dictionary of Mu, but it won't arrive before Christmas ...)

Short but sweet last session of the year: where the group meets their mark and decides to help him live a happy life with his lover rather than killing him ...

Maybe it is not the best idea to cast the moral equivalent of stone to flesh on a giant death heat fire laser ray shooting columnar golem ... but it is a fun idea!

Buck Dharma, you will be missed.

Watching a #solo #rpg video by Artichoke Dip. This one is a basic overview of getting into solo #gaming. Sometimes you can't get a group together or to explore new ideas on your own.

Short & sweet session with 2 players (one regular, @JollyOrc) tonight. We did create a character for John -- the new player joining the first time tonight -- and then Nate the Relocation Specialist and Odessa the Chimerist entered into the Golden Barge of the Slumbering Ursine Dunes again. A short but intense fight with a biodefense Golem cause Odessa to lose the tip of her nose, but Nate found a foot-wide copper ring in the roost of a giant 2-headed vulture ... and there we stopped. Fun times!

Today, I started transferring Ultraviolet Grasslands info onto index cards. My hand and wrist are completely unused to extensive writing, and my handwriting is terrible.

Ouch. And it's slow. But it's a good method to read closely what's in the PDF and jot down what I need to run the thing.

But it does not get the art (and maps) so that I can easily share them with the table. I need an art book.

Oh well. I have one-and-a-half-locations written down; maybe the players will go there tomorrow ...

Today I am presenting some of our work on BGP communities at #ripe77 - and you can watch the stream! Also there is a bunch of other interesting talks:

I've been asked to pitch/workshop a few interview ideas for people who are unusual in their field due to their demographic. Stuff like "the only person of colour in this highly homogenous company" or "the first non-binary person in X field".

Are you this person? Do you know of such a person? Who should I talk to?

Protect your schedule, including the empty time.

Even though I had a good run(*) in the last three years, I'm still getting anxious that there won't be answers to my call for players everytime I send it out a couple days before the next regular game ... but also excited because there will most likely be another session!

(*) More sessions skipped because I was traveling for business or leisure than because of a lack of interest
