strongly held opinion on a subject no one cares about: Rappan Athuk has no business whatsoever calling itself "The Granddaddy of All Megadungeons" if it was originally released in 2000 for D&D 3e

You should have to personally tell your neighbors and put a sign in your yard if you have one of those video doorbells, or any other kind of surveillance equipment

@OldBrushNewPaper I was surprised to see that I wasn't already following you! Must've been because we share the same Mastodon instance. Well, hello, you're great, hope you don't mind a follow!

criticizing consumerism without critiquing capitalism feels so hollow to me because it's just victim blaming.

I have to live in this system where I'm exploited and deprived of things everyone should have, and someone's gonna give me shit for wanting nice stuff now and then? Fuck off.

This paper (via @petethomas) was already fabulous just on the face of it, but it contains this sentence: "Additionally, airships have been considered to be designed to be unmanned to reduce risks of fatalities, especially if the airship uses hydrogen for buoyancy."

Now I really REALLY want to write an adventure module where the players have to pull off a heist on an unmanned airship and crucially must maintain a sparkless environment

weird quirk: once I ran a marathon, like, the 26.2-mile race. Before that, people would sometimes say, "Oh yeah, I ran a race too." After that, they say, "Oh yeah, I ran a 3-mile marathon one time." It really stuffs my tailpipe!!

... And that's how I came to be a 34-year-old man, standing in the kitchen at 12:30am wearing nothing but underpants, eating peanut butter with a spoon straight from the jar.

In Jurassic Park, an enormous t Rex chased down the humans while they drove away fast in a straight line. Well now I am walking down the street with a panicked pigeon waddling away from me and who is the humans now!!

Ancient nerd debates about how KOTOR2 is going to suck are well preserved online and even pop up prominently in search results. They seem so quaint

Kickstarter workers have not yet called for a boycott so I must tell you all that this is the most delightful RPG book I've seen in, uh, well like 24 hours I guess but for real it's great: kickstarter.com/projects/basti

I don't even own the main rulebook (yet!!!) but I would love to run a Zweihander campaign in 17th-century Massachusetts during a slew of witch trials. The witches would be the good guys obviously

I love all sorts of different RPG systems but it irks me when people say d&d is restrictive. If your DM runs the game like a tactics simulation, or says "nothing ruins a good plot like players," the problem isn't D&D
