Game of Thrones Finale Spoilers

From the chat on a GoT discussion
Really do need a spoiler tag
Part of me thinks (Drogon) swooped down, saw Dany with the sword in her chest, and just assumed the throne did it cause he doesn’t understand how swords work.

He destroyed the throne to protect Jon from the sword chair.

One day someone will turn to him and say, “swords don’t kill people, people do.” and he’ll put two and two together and come back looking for revenge.

That's just laugh out loud perfect!

When Lucas remastered Star Wars...

...instead of taking out Han shooting first and other insignificant changes, he should have been doing stuff like this... We only really know how badassed Darth is by reputation. It's been in auxiliary media that we've seen hints, then in Rogue One. This is how I like to think of Darth in the movies- active, rather than just letting his troopers do all the work.

This is the film that I'm waiting on

From the moment that they introduced the Nova Corps in Guardians of the Galaxy, I've been wanting to see a live-action Nova. It fits very well with them expanding into the cosmos and now makes perfect sense given his background in the comics.

Interesting development in this - there must have been very material differences in how it was presented and how it was intended to be presented to prompt this...

How Clone Wars and Rebels influenced Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

Interview with writer Chris Avellone:

I really hope that they get it right. I think there will be problems no matter who has the license. LucasArts themselves botched it.

Over the last week or so, I’ve seen a lot of upcoming Star Wars related stuff in various news feeds and such, and was struck by how little I now cared.

I'll always feel good things for Star Wars, so missteps (nor the fandom) can take that away from me. I see the movies on their own merits and stay away from fans at this point.

7. How to increase accessibility?

I never really thought about accessibility until I saw Jacob Wood's Accessible Guide to RPG Layout. I still don't think about it as much as I probably should, but since that was one of my firsts texts after I started laying out my own games, I keep a lot of it in mind- especially in regards to font choice and colors.
Jacob is a great guy. Survival of the Able struck me as such a great concept. He has been working with me, and the rest of House Dok to put together Metahumans Rising.

6. Long or short ttrpg texts?

I'm more likely to complete short. So I try for that, but then find I don't have enough room to encapsulate all of my ideas. So it gets longer. I'm trying to learn to be concise and be able to kill ideas that take me away from that using #Itch #GameJams, #200WordRPG, #GameChef and other events to help me fit an idea in varying word counts. I've had some success, but have a way to go.

5. Character or worldbuilding?


I have reams full of characters. It's one of the first things that I try when I get a new system. It's one of the first areas of concentration in my designs. That said, the characters cannot stand alone and a world that is suited to the characters, and the characters are suited to, is key in bringing any narrative alive. So as I create the characters, they breathe life into my concepts for the worlds.

I tend to build characters more than worlds, but the worlds I spend more time upon. All that said, I really can't choose between the two.


I really need to de-Google

I had a problem with Gmail... I sent an e-mail to myself years ago (2007) with some code that I'd created attached to back it up. I tried to download it today, and couldn't download it because they said that their AV had detected a virus.

Ignoring the problems implicit in that scenario...

Thankfully, I have another backup, but for grins, I posted to the Google community. With an hour, I received this response from someone on the community question:

They seriously can't police their own communities well enough to keep scammers from trolling people needing help?

Protonmail so far looks like the best alternative. I've been testing an account there for a few months,

4. Favorite type of game scenario?

I love intrigue, as shown by my love of #Amber, #LordsOfGossamerAndShadow, #LordsOfOlympus, #DeltaGreen, and many more suspense and conspiracy theory type games. However, I have trouble writing the scenarios for those, and the webs that must be maintained quickly become tangled with holes in the logic. I still work on those, and try to read scenarios that have those types of situations and learn from them.

I also like open-ended type scenarios that have a real impact on the game world. I take being a fan of the characters quite seriously, and love to see not just the current situation, but their progress from it.

Day 3: Key to your making process?

My key seems to be designing based on a story or theme. Without that impetus, it's hard to get the gears going, which is the reason that it's hard for me to do for-hire work. I'll read something, and it will start the gears spinning with a different take on a subject or taking a different tack to get to the perfect framing of the question that's at the foundation of the design.

I find that without that base, I tend to flounder and lose sight of the story that I started out to tell. I also have a lot of trouble "killing my darlings". Sometimes, my underlying fundaments are incorrect or flawed, and I have a hard time getting past that obstacle.

Day 2: Describe your work

My day-to-day work as a software architect sort of frames my writing and my game design work; I've found that I'm better at reframing the question or looking at the problem from a different angle to create something new rather than starting from scratch. With my limited time, I find that's also most efficient for me to get from start to finish.

Because of this, adventures and hacks are what I excel in, though I can do original work (and am working on an original for my favorite medium- play by e-mail). I find that's the exception, not the rule, but when I do so, I tend to want it to be perfect rather than iterate, which can keep ideas in development hell for a long time.


Wisdom From Remo Williams (via Steven Barnes)

“Fear is nothing more than a feeling.” Chuin says, in a rare moment of sympathy. “You feel hot. You feel hungry. You feel angry. You feel afraid. Fear can never kill you.”

It is a feeling. Like other feelings. But unlike the others, we judge ourselves horribly, call ourselves cowards, or think that fear means we can’t, or shouldn’t, or mustn’t. No.

It is just fear.
