ttrpg, Dungeon World 

Nothing has given me as sharp a feel for the way Dungeon World can work as the Lampblack & Brimstone supplements, btw. They're perfectly formatted to work with the system, and rooted in a very solid sense of how to tease a world out of PbtA-style moves.

I could go either way, honestly. I've picked up a bunch of Dungeon World supplements that I'd be happy to try out. Perilous Wilds, Servants of the Cinder Queen, that sort of thing. Or I could try to adapt Slumbering Ursine Dunes, maybe as another DW plane adjacent to theirs.

At the same time, I'd be just as happy trying out Mothership or Blades In the Dark.

Either way, I've downloaded Ironsworn and intend to give it a try as a solo campaign.

Busy, busy.

After a three week hiatus, I finally got the chance to redirect the party into a dungeon, which did a nice job of getting the adventure back on track. Who would have thought that a game called Dungeon World would work best with dungeons??

We're on track to draw this campaign to a conclusion next week, at which point I intend to give them the option to either carry on with this world, or try a different game altogether.

@romariorios It wouldn't surprise me, especially given the Trump admin's stance of Bolsonaro, if the CIA were involved, but it's not clear to me from the transcript that these senior officials are admitting to CIA involvement in that particular operation. If anything, it reads like their talking in the future tense.

I mean, it's fine if there's some medicinal or magical notes in there, that's just not the main thing I'm looking for.

@lrhodes not a book recommendation but I had a lot of fun so far by just picking up starter plants and following the little label instructions, I'm also taking notes of what I'm learning here about it: ritualdust.com/food/herbs/

Any recommendations for books on garden herbs? Not really looking for magical or medicinal use, I just want to grow and eat them.

I flew too close to the sun, btw. The Hunter boss killed me.

Maybe this is typical of Lvl. 3, but this is definitely the most crowded I've had a map get yet. Every loop was total carnage.

When scheduling time to play a ttRPG with adult friends, roll+bonds. If the result is…

10+ Success! A great time was had by all!
7–9 The session happens, but you still haven't worked out that one problem.
6- Reschedule; your GM downloads d6 new RPGs "just to check them out."

@kai Yeah, alternative cooling systems are neat. (Alt heating, too, but it seems less tricky ever since we discovered that whole fire thing.) My interest in a lot of this was piqued by randomly running across an article about zeer pots ages ago.

Spinoza: "Scripture does clearly indicate that God has a form, and that when Moses heard God speaking, it befell him to see God, but to behold only his back parts. So I have no doubt that here lies some mystery…" 🧐

question about returning to mastodon 

@jplebreton @lmichet Topic-centered instances would be a lot more useful, IMO, if you could join then from an existing account. Don't know how that would square with the underlying architecture of Mastodon, but the common practice of juggling (and eventually abandoning) multiple accounts is bad UX/UI, with negative social/practical consequences.

My mojito mint plant was getting too much sun, so I moved it to its own pot in a shadier spot on the balcony, but that left a space in the window planter, so I HAD to get a new herb to go there, and it doesn't REALLY make sense to grow tatsoi in the other window planter, so I may as well replace those plants with some other full sun-loving herbs, and since I was at the nursery anyway, why not pick up that already well-established English thyme and another pot to match, and and and

One hitch: My printer doesn't print full bleed. It's reportedly designed to leave a 1/16" margin, but I'm having a hard time getting it to print with anything less than a full inch. But I'll figure that out.
