Current plan (and if you're in my group of players, stop reading): the campaign starter is actually a Christopher Brookmyre story. Quite pleased with this concept :)

#introduction I'm Sara! I've worked on ARCADIA, Pathfinder 2e, Cyberpunk RED and The Witcher TRPG making disability rep content and mechanics! I've also written 2 official Witcher adventures and am the creator of the 5e homebrew Combat Wheelchair that's going into v4 in the near future!

I have a Linktree you can contact me through:

You can also follow me here for disability and #ttrpg #dnd content that I make!

Started work on maybe reading the excellent media references posts from @CritRoleStats and incorporating them into the CR searchable transcripts. This might be a bit troublesome, but I think it could be fun. I'm also trying to work out how to best present such things; I very much don't want to appear that I'm stealing CRS's thunder, so I'd probably link back to the relevant CRS page or something as well as any links they provide. Would people want to turn this off?

Just had an idea where I augment the searchable transcripts by pulling in @CritRoleStats media references posts so that the transcripts also know and link to what the references mean on a line by line basis. Is this something worth doing, do you think?

my Exandria campaign plan grows a bunch. Players are putting together characters, I know what happens first... this is all good. Still excited.

putting together a plan for a campaign in Exandria! Starting in Xhorhas! Quite excited.

One thing that Twitter does better than Mastodon so far (and the ONLY thing so far) is grouping notifications. Instead of 25 different notifications that people favourites your post, you get one that these 25 people favourites your post.

With Mastodon's system, every time I log in it is to 40+ notifications.

Is there a way to change this on my end?

Let's see if this can reach English-speaking people. I'm hosting a #ttrpg #jam with the theme "Late Stage Capitalism". It ends on Black Friday. Who's going to write the first game about a billionaire who buys a large social network for too much money and then destroys it?

Curses. The party have split up, which is clever of them but means that one of the attacks which would be a big deal for one of the party now needs shuffling because otherwise someone else will run into it and that'll blunt the whole thing. Darn players wrecking my plan as usual :)

nice, generated an image of a character I'm creating by using AI art tools. I have some issues with the ethical nature of such things, but I'm not sure it's significantly less ethical than "google image search for a description of my character and then just pick my favourite image and claim that's my character" which is what everyone does anyway! It's useful to help my imagination, anyway, I must say.

brilliant idea for dealing with difficult enemies in D&D 5e. Have a monk hit the enemy and deliver a stunning strike, which leaves the enemy stunned until the end of the monk's next turn. Then disintegrate the monk, so they never get a next turn. Enemy stays stunned forever. Problem solved.

Sweet, "One D&D". I like the look of all this; pulling together the recent ideas making ancestry a thing from Tasha's, first-level feats, it's still 5e and everything that already exists keeps working backgrounds get to be important, making inspiration a bigger deal and more relevant and shareable... this all seems pretty good from what's been seen so far. I was worried that by "big changes" they meant "we're gonna wedge more MtG stuff into D&D" and they didn't. Cool.

ok, the trailer for D&D: Honor Among Thieves actually looks pretty cool. This is a pleasant surprise!

hm. Comment from Jeremy Crawford on this UA (in "all of the new spells in this UA are thematically tied to the Deck of Many Things. I won't explain why, but..."

hints at an upcoming product, maybe?

a top banana D&D session. Got some backstory stuff into play, some mystery which leads to ongoing things, a cool new item, a bunch of inept physical comedy, a big fight which I really thought was going to go the other way for a bit, and begun the next module which should occupy the next couple of sessions! Fun fun :)

I've published my journalling Borealis as EPUB, along with why I think people should make epubs as well as PDFs... because a PDF is just so hard to read on your phone! If you're making a RPG module, ruleset, etc, please do epub too, that would be lovely.

Random idea: a D&D magical item, a ring of keys, where if you touch a key to it while saying the command word, then later pressing the ring to a lock opened by that key and saying the command word again will unlock that lock. Common versions of the ring of keys can hold one key, uncommon versions three keys, and rare versions as many keys as you want.

Mostly the ui and topic specific groups and the community, but circles are a part of that yup

If you want, you can move your Mastodon account from one instance (server) to another.

Moving lets you take your followers, follows and some settings with you.

1. Create a new account on the instance you want to move to, but DO NOT delete the old account.

2. Log into your NEW account, go to Edit Profile > Moving From A Different Account, click on "create an account alias" and follow the instructions.

3. Log into your OLD account, go to Edit Profile > Move To A Different Account, click on "configure it here" and follow the instructions.

4. On your OLD account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Data Export and download the settings and follows lists.

5. On your NEW account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Import and upload the lists you just downloaded in the previous step.

After doing all these, your old account will redirect to the new one, and your followers will transfer automatically (with a short delay).
