Hi there,! I guess here is my #introduction.

I'm a forever DM who also enjoys the artistic and DIY aspects of the ttRPG hobby, even though I'm not particularly good at those parts.

Something interesting I did: I ran The Lost Mines of Phandelver from the D&D 5e Starter Set with a group for at least 25 sessions over the course of an entire year. Of course I added stuff, but that was the core.

I also like rules-lite games like Knave and d6-based games like Barbarians of Lemuria.

Drive letters

How long can I make it into the year without having to deal with any of these things.

Happy new year everyone, I hope you have all made your lucky new year lemon pigs!

Last item of the week.

Tea leaves of communication.

You and the person you want to send a message to must both have tea from the same leaves. When drinking the tea you can infuse a short message into the leaves while you drink it. The next time the other player drinks tea made from the leaves the message will appear in the leaves in the bottom of their cup. One message per cup of tea.

I want to post a play through of my solo but I think my writing is so bad I would feel bad for the people reading it.

Has anyone had any luck getting MTG arena working on linux? I have an MTG itch that needs scratching.

While everyone is arguing about who is or isn’t on the honours list again I will say the same thing I always have: Being handed baubles by the super privileged so you can be part of the British Empire is not good.

Whenever I see an assembly tutorial they always say something along the lines of “you will never need to use assembly language in your every day job but it can’t hurt to learn”. I usually see this while I am going through old assembly at work trying to figure out what’s going on.

So i have been reading through the Genesys core book recently and I have to admit I am pretty excited about running this for the group I ran FAGE for in the new year. Also I think the narrative dice system looks more perfect for solo rpg games than most other systems I have read. Its interesting how the dice narrative dice don’t just produce a binary pass/ fail result like DnD and others. Its really going to work out my GM muscles running it.

First tentative kalimba steps. Doesn’t sound as clangy in person the phones mic is just a bit naff. Or at least that’s what I am telling people.

Someone bought our child a bell for Christmas. They are not our favourite person at the moment.
