@Jellal There's no reason to believe that our descriptions of causes coming before effects are correct, since they're inherently untestable. (My alternative is also untestable, admittedly, but allows for more possibilities. For instance, time travel necessitates the same effect coming both before and after its cause.)
@mithriltabby Hi! I saw your introductions post. Nice to meet you! You seem to have a lot of experience with Fate, and I'm curious if you have any advice/resources for running Fate campaigns.
I tried Fate Accelerated with my group and it didn't really stick. Wonder if there's a better way to ease into it (we usually play 5e but FAE looks far more appealing to me personally) Any tips?

What are the ethics behind buying bad people's works second-hand?
One could argue it's ok because you aren't paying the bad creator, but it seems wrong to tie your system of ethics to money.
Alternatively, one could argue that the work is ethically "tainted" and should not be consumed, but that seems too strong sometimes.
I feel like "creator vs. creation" and "don't support bad people" come to a head when we're talking second-hand sales.
What do you think?

Love it when the bug you've been struggling to find for over a week is caused by a single character...
Wow, it's been a while, Mastodon. Sorry for leaving unannounced for like 2 whole months (!!)
Anyway, I'm gonna try to be active and engage with the Mastodon community again.
So, to start, what did I miss? What's the coolest/most interesting/best thing you did since thanksgiving?
For this week's blog post, I did a color scheme analysis of Adventure Time's title cards: https://jonstoler.me/blog/adventure-time-color-analysis-part-1
Next week I'll be doing a similar analysis for the frames of the episodes themselves!
