«And do not forget morale.
The morale system does a few things:
👉 Increases the likelihood of shorter combats
👉 Provides tactical options for players
👉 Increases the likelihood of recurring characters
👉 Resolves the immediate conflict but may leave open future conflict
👉 Highlights that not everyone is in it to the death»

Another warmup sketch of a wolf, done in Clip Studio Paint for @Epidiah Ravachol's Wolfspell, coming soon to kickstarter!

Reportedly, in Tokyo, local gangs have started using drones to transport drugs across the city.

In response, the police are using net-carrying drones to try to capture these packets mid-air.

The gangs are counter-attacking with their own net-drones to try and drop police drones.

In a statement with the Tokyo police, they say they "Haven't had this much fun in years"

Tracy Chapman: *slaps roof of car*
This bad boy can fit so many memories of driving, driving in this car. Speed so fast it felt like I was drunk and I-YEE-I HAD A FEELING LIKE I BELONGED

Honestly, like 90% of "should we treat robots like people?" sci-fi narratives are almost inexcusably lazy, because they're willfully ignoring the much more uncomfortable reality.

How can we be willing to acknowledge whether or not robots should be treated like people, without acknowledging the reality that people are already being treated like robots.

they should let bendis do marvel movie cameos to fill in for stan lee, because it'd make a sepcific type of marvel guy VERY mad

I loved this episode of The Megadungeon #podcast, Interview with Che Webster. themegadungeon.com/the-megadun
They talk about Caverns of Thracia (which also ran a few years ago ago, using D&D 3.5 at the time), but in the intro they talk about the benefits of B/X: Basic and Expert D&D from the early eighties! Character creation is fast, combat is fast, the rules are simple. That’s why my Halberds & Helmets is basically a house ruled variant of it (via Labyrinth Lord).
