It would make my life slightly more pleasant if the cryptocurrency kids would please stop telling everyone they're going to rescue society by removing the need for trust.
A society that isn't based on trust is not worth living in. Replacing trust with electricity consumption is always going to be a recipe for idiocy.
DnD/TTRPG Query Pt 2
So far I'm considering Discord and a generic forum (FluxBB/phpBB). Neither feels good. Discord just leaves an icky taste in my mouth: Centralized, not self-hosted, not encrypted. But everyone pretty much has an account, it supports voice calls (so we can stop using zoom at least), it has rooms and basic replies.
Forums are the opposite largely. I love the idea of hosting my own, they'd be relatively secure and "secret" even if not fully encrypted. They lack any other functionality and people would need another login (and I'd need to configure email on my server to handle notifications, which is a HUGE downer on adoption for me personally)
Mastodon - I'm looking for some help. I am part of a large Westmarches-style DnD campaign. Part of the problem is that our PCs don't feel very connected to one another (there's ~16 of us) and we're having trouble doing that. Given the large number of players and restrictions on player and DM availability, it's difficult to interact meaningfully in the sessions (the party changes every week and we're limited on time during sessions). Do you have this problem? How do you/can we solve it?
I'm on gemini now. No idea what benefit that'll provide, but I'm there.
Just a dad who likes technology and loud music. Tries to have things worth saying about things. Probably fails.
