There is now so much great stuff on my Disney+ that I profoundly do not want on my Disney+.

Honestly, I feel trapped. Playing games passes the time but my repeated failures make me miserable. Without them, I have nothing to do and I become miserable.

I got back into Mastodon, on which I am in a video games instance, right as I got out of video games. Hmm.


Today is going to be a day where I struggle not to see the entire world as a complete shithole

Under-rated benefits of lockdown/WFH: Reduced shame on days when you’re weirdly way too gassy.

Hack: If you can, ask to work outside ‘because transmissibility’.

It’s been over a month since we’ve had a Covid case in NSW. Objectively, it’s pretty safe to go out. This is why I know I’m not just being cautious, but have developed serious agoraphobia while in lockdown.

I am not going to be the only one, and I suspect this will be a significant problem going forward.

OK so I might have made a cold brew. And I might be drinking it straight instead of diluting it. And I might be not sleeping for the next week.

Hot damn this stuff is strong.

I am very aware that, “Oh heck, I might actually have to go outside again as my local area is likely actually clean for Covid-19” is an exceptionally good problem to have.

But man, I like staying indoors for weeks at a time. I legit do. Stupid social expectations.

@sage Hey, are there a list of rules for Pondering migrating over to your instance but want to know what I’m signing up for.

Bonus points for it being friendly to play online.

Request for suggestions: What tabletop RPGs do you guys play? Particularly interested in recent ones. I realised to what extent my RPG play really is dominated by the 90s and earlier. WoD, D&D, CoC, all ancient. I want new stuff.

Man. OK, coming back to Mastodon after :a_while:. Let’s see if I stick with it this time. Definitely need a place to say things again.

Hey, I made a "rules light" TTRPG named Kobolds In Space! (With a lot of help from my friends, mind you!)

I've also made a couple collections of 5e compatible magical items, complete with write-ups by Mox the Kobold Paladin!

The best part is, they're free! (Or $2, or pay-what-you-want, whatever.)

You can get them all here:

I just saw Netflix’s “Marvel collection”.

I’m not sure why Netflix is trying so hard to make its user interface as obnoxious as possible.

I can't stop thinking about the reality of being the person whose job was to do this high-def 3D model or apply lovingly-rendered textures onto David Cage's Android Racism Bus. Imagine having technical skills and all these stories and ideas in your head, and your job is to bring this famous guy's brain farts into the world.

The weirdest thing with the whole debacle is that normally with this sort of crap you get an apology, but no structural changes that would prevent it from happening again. Like, "We screwed up, we know it, and we're going to try to make sure this doesn't happen in the future" followed by nothing to stop it happening in the future.

Here, they made those concrete steps... but no apology.

The fan reaction proves the apology matters more for PR.

Bioware RPGs are really just glorified dating sims ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

Me: What will make running these Adventurer’s League games sustainable is that they’re all module based, so there won’t be too much prep.
Also me: I could redo all these maps in colour for sure.
