Hall of shame / re: GDPR - Doodle.com Show more
Doodle.com just asked for my govt ID in order to comply with #GDPR and delete any data they may have of me (when I shouldn't even be asking for it in the first place if they were really complying).
Biggest wtf of all the replies I got so far to my removal requests.
So... They want something they never had. My face and full name. Why? Up yours, doodle!
MASTODON NERDS, HEED MY WORDS:
I need your "random encounters for a fantasy warband" ideas again. Specifically looking for "things you might encounter in plains/fields" and "things you might encounter in woods". Ideally not just monsters - I'm thinking sidequest givers, upgrade offerers, or other things with more interesting "hooks" about them.
@JubalBarca Your party crosses into a region which is extremely feudal. Each local Lord owns about 5-10 acres, all subject to a regional Noble. Each Lord has peasants and operates essentially a large farm.
Neighbor wars are a THING. Pick any /r/askreddit thread talking about hoas and neighbor wars, translate to setting. It's really dumb. Really. Really. Really. Dumb.
@JubalBarca Your party, walking down a path, encounters a group of humans around a barricade. They have rusty weapons and look scrawny and hungry. One steps out and demands your food.
Your party is camping for the night in rolling prairies. They have been in the prairies for 5 days and are getting on edge. You can't usually see more than 1/8 mile ahead unless you're on the top of a hill... where all you see is more hills. While making the fire you found that there once was a castle here.
@JubalBarca You find a dirty old bag in the hillside. Someone must have forgotten it. You open it and find ... .
pick one of (scroll of information, some coins, moldy bread). - DM can work in the local setting & background story.
You hear a rustling in the bushes under the trees. A deer bolts, followed closely by a tired hunter walking out sadly. $opportunity to share food & story. Opportunity to explore racism.(Do you kill the orc? elf? human? hunter? Do you help?)
in case u didnt know about polish chickens

@shel yes, the wall is "if I am arrested and charged with a felony and it sticks, likely my family will be homeless and their critical health care & support that my job funds go away, maybe my baby dies". Taking a stand has to be clearly worth *that*.
try not to trivialize people who don't stand up with "maybe you won't be able to play a video game".

@KitRedgrave Yeah, I've been watching with *immense* frustration. It should have been an order of magnitude large of a tax, and percentage based to address costs of low-wage workers.
Durkan is more and more revealed as the suburban, NIMBY, & "Small Seattle" mayor. Really frustrates me. (I voted for Moon, TYVM).

it's interesting how all these little regressive things like the soda tax stick without much problem, even though people hate it, but as soon as you try to tax large corporations even a little bit now it's a huge world-destroying deal.
but then again i don't know too much yet about how it is there
