What's it got in it's pockets?

Aside from NPC portraits, you'll get to see different environment "panels" that will pop onto your screen!

There are around ~200 of these! 🥲 And number 68 will shock you! (or maybe not...)

Go check out Hatchwell on Steam! 😁

Hi, there!

Have you reviewed a game on itch today?

Coming soon: Dead Ends, a necromantic adventure for fifth level #DnD players


I'm super stoked about this one finally releasing. I've worked on it for about a year now!

It's had two rounds of play testing, three rounds of proofreading. It's finally ready.

I initially joined mastodon.social in 2018, but it didn't click for me. But in April, like many of you I arrived back here, this time on scholar.social. I feel like I've found an online.

So this week on my podcast I interviewed one of the loudest evangelists of decentralized social networks, Darius Kazemi. He's a computer programmer, digital artist, and runs friend.camp. I enjoyed learning from him and hope you do too.

Well, now that I'm back in the States and on Mastodon, I'm thinking about working on an SRD for Party First and the associated Tension Engine.

Any thoughts/tips/pointers on writing SRDs?

1/ #ttrpg people, did you know that parties of treasure hunters were totally a real thing in Early Modern Europe?

The composition of these adventuring parties was a bit different than in standard #dnd , of course - but a mixture of professions was considered essential then as it is now.

Since Mastodon is the elephant app, that makes all other social networks irrelephant.

What a trip that was. Feels weird to be back in the US.

Interesting to see fediverse.info/explore/people seeking to provide a directory enabling Mastodon users to find other people with similar interests. The nice part is of course that you are NOT in the directory unless you add yourself. It's "opt-in".

The challenge is that they need a certain number of people to register in order for it to start being useful. (I have not yet, but might.)

I have some vague memories of similar directories being created for email a few decades ago.

As well as images, you can attach audio or video files to Mastodon posts. Here are some assorted tips:

-There is no length limit on audio or video files, but they have to be below a certain file size (usually 40 megabytes). Check with your server admin if you're unsure about the file size limits.

-You can replace the thumbnail with an image file by clicking on the "choose image" button.

-On audio files, remember to add a text description of the sound for deaf users.

-On video files, remember to add text descriptions of the pictures for blind users, and of the sound for deaf users.

-Silent MP4 videos will be treated as animated GIF images.

-Audio can be MP3, OGG, WAV, FLAC, OPUS, AAC, M4A, 3GP

-Video can be MP4, M4V, MOV, WebM

Thanks to the lack of a time limit, one legendary Mastodon post had the Angelina Jolie film "Hackers" ridiculously compressed to fit within the file size limit. It was unwatchable 😁
