Daydreaming about Dragons, episode 57

A friend sent me thoughts on a game w/ an unlisted youtube vid & that got me thinking.
If one were so inclined, one could play a video-to-video play by post style.
Daniel was in.
Cyberpunk Nurse was born:
WotC: What if all of these sapient species were not presented as subhuman?
Someones: But D&D isn't fun without violence!
Me: Whuh? Who said anything about taking violence out of the game?
Is #dnd about doing violence to the subhuman to you?
As a tabletop role-playing gamer, I find myths of the subhuman lazy and boring.
As a Jew and white American aspiring anti-racist seeing what happens when myths of the subhuman become institutional policy, I find it fucking terrifying.
Wrote a thing after reading AW2e and Burned Over.
Cyberpunk ala Apocalypse World
AW out of the box is 50 years after the apocalypse. Slow Burn Cyberpunk AW is 5 years from some soft apocalypse. The world is dead but doesn’t know it yet. Some of the institutions we know are still zombie-footing around, not admitting that it is all over.
A bundle of premium fonts for $10, proceeds go to The Bail Project https://gumroad.com/l/nenoy
The bundle's up to 36 pages of games.
Some fully playable. Some assets you can use to make your own games. Some are TTRPGs.
It's worth it.
Minimum is $5 but you can donate as much as you want above that if you are able.
I hope you and yours are well and that your endeavors contain the measured ratios of fell and wonder you are looking for in your elf games.
It sure what to write these days. So many things seem dire. I’ll say that session 10 of my Just Halberds campaign has been doing fine. I used the format @Judd had suggested for low-energy prep notes (characters, consequences, cool stuff, and world events) to good effect. As you can see in the picture, lots of items checked off. Cool! There was no long fight but simple a lot of planning which I then decided simply worked (I’m not one to roll in these situations) and retold.
Scumbag Wizards, trying to make an N.C. Wyeth painting look like a great find in a used bookstore.
Post-script - now I can't stop thinking about how easy it would be to adapt Trophy Gold to do picaresque Dying Earth fantasy stuff...

Desperation in RPG's and thinking about a group's success in throwing a festival...
Time to laugh and laugh as I catch up with the past decade of online roleplaying in two months!
Haunted Dragon Bones
It is a bringer of death and a funereal rite. Fire destroys but the ashes are often fertile ground for future planting.
What is some destructive metaphorical fire that your treasure-hunter suffered through but found something fertile in the ashes after the fire had been extinguished?
Is there anything in your life right now you need to set fire to?
Trying to organize something between prep notes and fronts and just ideas using the framework @Judd posted on his site (except that my notes are in German). Sometime I wonder in which categories stuff goes. Also noticing that I have an easy time imagining this or that happening but having to force myself to think of it as questions for players. Interesting.
