Here's a new #introduction for new visitors... Show more
I'm a Canadian living in Seattle, WA. I do ops at AWS (sorry). I'm married to the best person I know. We have 5yr old twin boys we're teaching to be empathetic, careful and considered members of society, I hope. It's really hard.
I dig music. I drink coffee. I play games. I have a greyhound, Rufus; he's a lovable idiot.
I post random nonsense about my day, music I'm listening to, and what I'm having for lunch. You gonna finish that?
you know how a coupla years back, just as the Outage Machine was really starting to hum, there was this orthogonal push to stop tweeting about your lunch, because nobody cares about your sandwich? that was the thing I loved best about Twitter: people sharing their most mundane, their most regular experiences. It's like a warm blanket, mercifully free of judgement and outrage. I'm no Buddhist, but I really dig the concept of the sacredness of the every day.
I had grilled cheese with bacon, btw.

#DnD Last night's game was our group's one-year anniversary, so I gave the party an opportunity to pump a god for information about the campaign. They did not disappoint.
the best #DnD is discovering things at the table that I didn't know about my NPCs or the world. Like the dragonborn tribal leader they met tonight turned out to be way more xenophobic than I expected him to be, partly because the party got the info he was going to dump elsewhere so he didn't need to be so nice, but partly because he had this barely contained rage over the injustice done to his people that just sort of came out of him as I played him. Maloc-na-Tombek is a complicated dude!
1 year! I've been DMing my group's #DnD campaign for a whole year as of today. I have learned so much and had so much fun. The campaign has changed drastically from how I envisioned it, gone places I never expected to (whoops a bunch of level 4s running around Dis!) and we've had so many really amazing character moments. My players are the best.

"When you see a ska fan, you see a nerd enjoying themselves. Who doesn’t hate that?"
It's an asymmetrical strategy game where 1-3 Heroes send adventurers to explore a dungeon controlled by a fourth player (the Guardian). Heroes recruit, buy items/spells, scout, and resolve rooms in tbe dungeon looking for the treasure horde. The Guardian mutates the state of the unexplored dungeon in an effort to defeat the adventurers with spells, monsters, etc. I'm looking forward to trying it out.
In other news, I found my copy of HERO vs GUARDIAN: Dungeon Craft in the back of the spillover board games cabinet. We never even played it! So I'm teaching myself the rules. It's interesting, but I don't yet fully grok how to Guardian effectively. #boardgames
and now, because my being home sick for a week wasn't exciting enough, Wingus has a fever and is hallucinating. #DadOps
