Pinned post

Greetings, habitués of the Wandering Shop. As Mick Jagger likes to sing, "Please allow me to myself…"

I'm the / of a tabletop role-playing game () who enjoys posting the odd pencil , outline, or full- that eventually became for the game —plus a few that never made it in.

I also like to share whatever / / is currently filling me with .

artists and writers: The book anthology “Bi Visibility” is now accepting submissions for Volume 2.

Their submission form is on Google Docs, so take appropriate precautions: docs.google.com/forms/d/1HE5mr

This week is #TransAwarenessWeek. A good time to inform yourself about the many issues people that are trans face every day. And it would be even better if you stand up for trans rights all year. :trans_flag:

Here's a pencil of Dr. Diamond Lilly Jones, leader of the far-future science team behind the Lost Tribes project, which is trying to establish contact with lost branches of Humanity scattered across space.

Her seven parents designed Jones' body and mind to be express the scientific, artistic, and athletic ideals of Adonides society.

Not visible in this sketch are the tiny glit signatures of Diamond's parents along the edge of her left iris.

public transit systems never will - and aren't supposed to - make money or break even

fares are a holdover of a culture of "properness" and disproportionately affect disadvantaged people

fareless systems see significant increases in use, which directly translates to less use of cars and healthier cities

proposed experiment to mess with the transphobic harassment scraper 

We've been discussing how the transphobic spammers are finding targets and a current hypothesis is that they're using a scraper to find the string "trans" in people's bios. For instance it seems I got on the list for having "translator" in my bio.

So if you want to try and prove or disprove this hypothesis and possibly mess up their scraper, I suggest putting the word "trans" somewhere in your bio. Since it's easier to adapt the scraper to get get around trans being part of a word (like "translator" or "transistor"), it might be helpful to add both the words "trans" and "transgender." Example sentences:

"I support transgender rights. Trans rights = human rights."

"I may not be trans but transgender hating script kiddies are too incompetent to tell the difference."

Obviously do this ONLY if you're okay with potentially getting on the trans list. If you don't want to receive spam I suggest turning off DMs and notifs from accounts you don't follow.

If we can't stop the harassment at its source yet, we might be able to dilute or grow the list past usefulness, and hide our trans friends through sheer numbers so they can't be as easily singled out.

So where was I? Oh yes, time for some .

Enjoy the pencil , outline, and full of Sgt. Jahl Dai of Clan Raptor. He's a bit more than human, thanks to the generations-long breeding alliances set up by various Moreaux clan mothers, and quite a bit of early genetic alteration.

You can read more about him and his future at: tenthousandworlds.org/titles/t

... and here's Detective Behr in full .

FYI, his write-up can be found within the "Heroes & Villains" section of "Appendix V - Sample Non-Player Characters (NPCs)", in the latest release of "Ten Thousand Worlds":

I'm still not sure what I think of these books, but I can say that I find the covers absolutely fucking mesmerizing and simply stunning.

Not sure if anyone is interested in tabletop RPGs around here, but I just released one. For certain values of tabletop, anyway: felix.plesoianu.ro/rpg/gng/
