Thinking about ttrpgs and how there's like a sweet spot for planning that seems to be a thing, where if people plan more, they map out expected successes and failures and are disappointed when things don't fit in their plan, but on the other hand, depending on the gms style they kinda benefit from either scenes or npcs to be mapped out a lil bit

Three of these are correct, the rest are bad to the point of harmful
Never prep plot, no paper after seeing scissors & three tiers of truth being correct?
In all honesty, I need to gwt more involved in running ttrpg discourse in general just to give me ideas of starting points because I still have a very fish-out-of-water feeling when trying to prep a game, even after half a dozen games ran
Honestly, Module Raiding is a really fun job.

Take an adventure and rip out the fun and only the fun.

Gives you free stats for pieces and some art and maps, but you get to ignore the crappy parts.

I have *literally hundreds* of prepublished adventures in the basement
I mean, yes that is good advice and I should think about that more

The other side of things is that it isn't an idea that I have trouble with, and I actually love coming up with ideas, it is how to express my concept into reality that I feel tugs at me

Although some ideas I change so much on my way to putting them into practice that I might actually have more luck seeking out something that fits the description

Other ideas, like Melanora, would anyone else make a module for, and would I be able to *find* it?
I mean, https://www.drivethrurpg.com/ you can search out your concept

I also like to read books or short stories on the theme I want to hit, though that's less stat blocks

Literally, do research! You don't need to tell a story in a vacuum
Three Tiers of Truth being one of the worst

Timezone Salience being the other correct one


Harry Potter


How do you reconcile loving a series so much just for it to be torn down by the author's horrible bigotry

At pride, some people I was talking to said that they wouldn't let her take it from them, that they wouldn't let her have that over them

But I dunno, it's so hard to read it with the same unbridled enthusiasm I once had, I just feel heartbroken that something that once meant so much to me is broken like this, still...

Does it even make sense, it's just a set of books...

I know it's problematic, and people talk about that 😔, I think that's one of the problems I'm having. I loved it so whole-heartedly for so many years. I even did a course on it in uni where I wrote essays about the themes
It’s hard to let go but you now have the adult perspective to admit it isn’t the best work to hold dear. Like a certain Ice Queen said, let it go…


Tomorrow I'm going to my first pride event

Over the past few years I've realized I'm both pan/bi and demi, so I guess I belong lol

@silverwizard is much more chill about it than me (in terms of nerves), so I think it'll be fun, and as he has pointed out, we'll potentially know a bunch of people who'll be there too... so not all intimidating strangers (all strangers are intimidating fyi)

I'm excited. I'm gonna wear my rainbow skirt and he's planning on wearing his rainbow vest from our wedding bc when else can you wear that?

Wish me luck, if you want to ❤🧡💛💚💙💜
Not a lot of venues for this vest ya know
Every. Single. Day.


Comment if you're interested

I'm curious how many people and in what way people care about opsec

Personally, I am pretty certain my opsec is awful and I kinda wish I could have better opsec because I am generally, clinically (sometimes) paranoid but I also, in my clearer head, think it's too much work to bother with and more than likely nobody will do anything with information I post online

I really hope I don’t associate Sean & Ro's birthdays with the upsetting events that transpired this year but I imagine it's going to be such a salient memory attached to very specific dates, I really don’t know how I'm going to avoid the natural association

For context, a family member I was once close to, went into palliative care and then passed. Which is it's own thing I'm not going to get into

Becky reshared this.


Hi fediverse! Boosts appreciated on this one.

I’m part of a co-op building a platform for artists to sell art without getting exploited. I’ve been working on it for a while but there’s a lot of work to do and I could use some help. A ton of the main features are in place, but there’s still some big gaps and a lot of polish left before it can launch.

The platform is fully open source and developed in the open. It’s built on Phoenix/Elixir and Tailwindcss. Our co-op is already incorporated and established and it’s open to members that want to actually commit but you don’t need to be a member to contribute or help.

Does this sound interesting? I’d love some help! I’m also happy to answer questions. And no, you don’t need to know Elixir already. It’s pretty easy to learn for the things you’d be using it for. Even some design help would be welcome. Feel free to reply here or DM me!

I saw a huge bumble bee in our garden today and took some time to explain to Shæ why it was something exciting to me

He looks at the bumble bee and says "he's so cutttee" 🥰


Somehow our first ever family vacation with the kiddos ended up with a massive province wide power outage, no water, and then my grandmother went into palliative care so.... hmm...

Sean thinks it's because I'm cursed (thru no fault of my own, he insists)


My toddler is in that toddler mood where you blink and he's draining the bottle of baby shampoo all over the a piece of wooden climbing equipment. If I'm not careful I might be tangled in a web of tape

This is not shade on my toddler btw, he's just very busy and that's good and fine


Oh no, I'm posting sad stories again.., I hope this isn't indicative of things to come


My birth story with Shæ, I was in a much better place and I wrote the story down and loved to tell people

My birth story with Ro, I was in a lot worse of a space, and I didn't want to remember every detail so I didn't write it down and hardly ever tell anyone

It kinda sucks that I won't have a stored memory for both of them because I wish it could be something celebratory in my mind for Ro too

I guess this is just how it goes... I wonder how many other people had similar experiences, if anyone ever did


Just a thought

If you're throwing a hot rooftop party in very warm temperatures for your business consider... serving non alcoholic drinks too... like water... to your employees


The same force within me that blows the world away with fireworks and makes music light up also creates the most vivid and terrifying images in my head that are so powerful it can keep me up at night and I don't know how to resolve that kind of dichotomy in my feelings towards it, this incredibly strong part of me 🙁


Sponge Art


I love exploring art techniques with children, especially toddlers. It's probably my favourite activity to do right now..

Today we painted sponges and dabbed them on the page to create a stippling effect

I decorated a cake for a toddler!
