we moved! our new place is bigger and kind of nice, but (1) it's going to take awhile to get it set up and (2) our dog is totally freaked out and anxious

Friends, I've just released a small tabletop heist and decoration game where you play as a family of tiny borrowers in a big human house.

Its played in a physical home, with the real objects that are there, and (though its got a cute vibe) pokes at issues of collection, preciousness, and resources- and how those lines split differently for different people.

Go on borrowing missions! Build your nest! Don't get caught!

Junk Nest City is pay what you want over on itch ~

i had to improvise a bit since i wasn't sure what characters we were going to have, but now i'll have a week to prepare for next time.

just finished our first online session of the RPG Troika and it went really well. i think folks captured the feel of the setting and i'm looking forward to next week.

maybe it's time to move off mastodon.social onto my own thing

I'm extremely pleased to launch Run Your Own Social: How to run a small social network site for you friends.

This is a guide book to running a small, tight-knit federated social network server. It comes from my year of experience running Friend Camp. It's focused largely on SOCIAL solutions, though it does touch on the technical.

I've tried to keep it technology-neutral, and it should be a pretty easy read for anyone who's been on the fediverse for a while.

i never wanted to be an ebook person but when i started traveling frequently the temptation of a kindle was too great

Decided to see what would happen if I trained a neural net to write names for self-aware AIs.
