Hello! I'm Captain Cursor, aka Nicholas Taylor McDowell. I'm a Narrative Designer on #Riftgame. I do the voice of a drunken satyr and various other characters in Trion Games. I'm interested in RPGs both tabletop and computerized, science, mythology, and maybe politics, though maybe I need a refuge from it. My son is very good at machine learning, so I'll follow that though I don't remotely understand the math (though he does).Glad to be here!
Ran some more of the #PathfinderPlaytest for the kids today. The bard was too distracted while the party was setting off traps because he was working on perfecting his inspiring monologue monologue. I gave him an inspiration point.
Today at the #Starfinder game:
Security Bot: Who are you with? Where's your authorization?
Formian Warrior: "Whom".
Security Bot: *Eyes narrow, pulls out a tactical pike, charges its Thunderstrike Gauntlet, and rolls initiative.*
That feeling when you search for something online, and the first relevant result on google is ... you. Lamenting about the lack of information on the subject. http://paizo.com/threads/rzs2v1ef?Arkanen-the-dirindi-and-the-sazarons
And yet another work day where I've spent filing requests for objects made out skulls be crafted. I'm living the dream! #gamedevlife
A friend linked this on that book of faces site. I had not read this before, but it helped me to sum up my feeling about why I hated the people who said "But it's art" when people complained that the Mass Effect 3 ending was bad. https://doycetesterman.com/index.php/2012/03/mass-effect-tolkein-and-your-bullshit-artistic-process/
Thinking about getting back to my #starfinder campaign this Sunday and how to make Liavra feel unique and quirky. Thinking that I'll put "lanes" in all the space encounter to represent all the micro-meteors, shepherd moons, and other orbital debris that is unpredictable around that planet. I think it needs a feeling of being a crazy place that somehow keeps working.
