In honor of the latest finger pointing hate brigade over on Twitter, or as I call it the "Creators who give away content are part of the problem and evil", I have made a decision. All four of my pdfs that I wrote that are up on DrivethruRPG I have set to Pay What You Want. So now I can be evil and part of the problem as well. #ttrpg #roleplaying #gaming

I put out posts for specific blogs for folks to be aware that they exist but I'm not an OSR person myself, but am a TTRPG player when I can and like to stay up on things.

Recommended to try looking for folks using a variety of links in posts:

Well, I'm #newhere, another G+ refugee checking out this platform. It looks promising; hopefully it can become a robust system and as great a community as I had at G+.

Below is an alphabet soup of hashtags with some of my more frequently visited interest areas. Historically I haven't used hashtags in much of anything I've written online, so I don't know that I'm gonna start doing that here all of a sudden, either. In any case this place looks like it emulates G+ circles (with the aspects thing), and afaic that's an adequate way to track and find my interest groups and like-minded peeps. Guess we'll see how it all works out!

By the way almost all my posts are public unless I'm asking a very specific question to a particular group of people (like asking fellow novelists something about writing craft or marketing). So what you see here is pretty much what you get.

(Btw my profile pic is way overdue to be changed but I'm starting out with it here for the sake of visual recognition for G+ friends.)

My main current interest areas: #3dprinting, #artificialintelligence, #china, #currentevents, #fantasy, #futurism, #gaming, #german, #germany, #history, #miniatures, #petmice, #rpgs, #science, #sciencefiction, #technology, #wargames, #worldbuilding, and #writing.
 

Looks Like Google Is Getting More Anti-Social Networking


Now is the time to get your online gaming groups over to Discord or other available platforms before the rush. The other piece of Google's Social Networking Systems is the next to go after Googleplus shuts down.

This is a game, and you’re invited to play!


I, the Magnificent Duke Arbold, am wandering the world with you, my guides and scouts and burden-bearers. And also Podrick. I have in my possession this sketch of a map, which we shall flesh out as we travel; I hear tell that this is a land of endless war, terrible sorcery, and grim oppression. We will proceed by question and answer. I, naturally, shall ask you questions. And you, my good servants, shall inform me of what lies about me, by answering my questions.

The Rules

  • I rarely risk my precious self on my travels; I rely on you. When I ask a question, please answer it. Usually, but not always, I’ll say anyone can answer.
  • I consider speed the essence of truth. If there are multiple answers, the first will be taken as true; others will only be accepted if they work well with the first one received.
  • If you do not know the answer to a question, you may answer me with rumors, things you have heard but cannot confirm, and so on. Where appropriate, tell me especially of the endless war, terrible sorcery, and grim oppression I mentioned before, and of like matters.
  • Some answers, of course, will be impossible to countenance. If your answer is disruptive, I’m allowed to ignore it.
  • When I ask “What was that, Podrick?” or a similar question, anyone may answer as Podrick. Podrick is my most loyal and infuriating scribe, and she always replies with an observation about something I’ve overlooked in the setting or the situation. This observation will, without fail, demonstrate how I’ve misunderstood what’s going on (or how I’ve been grandstanding to boost my self-image, or will otherwise put me in a bad light). Podrick has no fear and neither should you when you speak as her.
  • At times, I will tell Podrick to rewrite her account with what I have decided must become the truth. You are all ordered to forget what your eyes saw and only ever repeat what I have had Podrick record. Naturally, you are also ordered never to question my integrity in such matters.
  • If you wish to subscribe the thread, please use the phrase, “At your service, your Magnificence!”, or otherwise report for duty in some quick but respectful fashion.
  • I’ll make the first comment.
