Anyone have any leads on what language orcpub files are written in? I don't want to build a file merger from scratch.

ADHD mood of the day, can't focus enough to play videogames, build pet code projects, or organize my D&D campaign.
Guess I'll manually comb through my hard drive and clear up space.

Turns out I'm going to be in a Shadowrun Podcast pretty soon, so that's exciting.

Taxes raking me over the coals.
A full 25% of my check.
Most of this going to bullshit military purchases.
But I'm not even mad at the taxes, I'm mad that even at my pay grade, I can barely afford the cost of living.

The cost of living shouldn't consume all of *anyone's* paycheck.

Hot take: Egoism is just anarchy for people still fascinated with Platos Cave.

My 5e L.1-25 (epic boons) game is going to go

* Lost mines of Phandelver
* Horde of the Dragon Queen
* The Rise of the Dragon Queen
* The Storm Bringer Juggernaut
* Dead Gods; Into the Dark [2e → 5e ]
* Die, Vecna, Die![2e → 5e]
* Bastion of Broken Souls [3.5e → 5e]
* The Quick Silver Hourglass [3.5e → 5e]

With heavy inspiration and side quests from 3rd party modules!

Having a lot of fun re-writing the Tyranny of Dragons module to make it a lot more queer and anarchist, also suiting it to my D&D setting better.

We're already there.
It's already happening.
We're outgunned and under equipped.
Now, at least, I understand bwhy so many people went on as usual.
What else can I do?
I'm already stretched so thin.
It'd be so much easier to go fight something.
Fight someone.
Die doing something useful or Noble.
Gamble on freedom.
But it's simply not feasable.
What. Do.

pondering politics 

Unenforced standards will not be universally followed, and universally will not be followed.

That's a code concept. It works for logical structures of (expectedly) limited information. People using it.

This probably doesn't apply to the limitless nature of humans. People don't work well with universal standards.

Other than rights I suppose.
So rights must be enforced...

No conclusions

dungeons & dragons rant 

Naturally I have my own Homebrew solution, but I'm curious what the fedaverse thinks!

dungeons & dragons rant 

Is anyone else super disappointed how armor breaks the promise of D&D5e that you don't need wondrous items.

Plate is presented as a mundane item but it is literally unattainable until about L.6. and is wealth gated.

I understand that they were trying to create a scaling armor class, but everything else about 5th edition's bound accuracy is an attempt to escape from WBL.

Please share with me your thoughts!

Running D&D again tonight.
Trying a minimalist set of house rules. It's so painfully few changes, but it makes most things playable (except that Warlocks are OP)


Anxiety Work 

I can't focus on my very simple task today. I'm so worried for when my utter lack of executive function catches up with me and I fucking lose my job again.

Defo over-extended myself at ECCC, trying to remind myself this pervasive exhaustion isn't forever.

damn, time and time again, capitalism proves it's just the best at delivering the most efficient results
