Weird... I had "Cara Mia" by Jay & the Americans stuck in my head all afternoon, when I hadn't heard (or even THOUGHT of) the song in years.

Turns out, Jay Black died a couple of days ago. Hadn't heard.


Our GURPS Vortex campaign will be on hiatus until January at least. In the meantime, I've decided to try a few other generic/universal TTRPGs. I bought Fate Core and Silhouette Core a few days ago, and am planning to pick up Savage Worlds and Rifts next payday. Not planning on buying anything D&D-derived.

I'll come up with a character concept, then try to build that character in each system, comparing how easy (or intuitive) it is.


Can we take a moment to acknowledge one of the least appreciated #cyberdeck in pop culture?

Trump's new social network is preparing to launch... look familiar?

I advise you get on blocking the below domains.

You knew it was going to happen.

Boost it far and wide!


Cis people: "You’re 15 now it’s time you choose your path at school which will eventually impact your future diploma, your future work and all your life."

Trans people: "I might be a girl …"

Cis people: "NO! You’re way too young to know !!!"

When they get on their shit, this is all I hear.

This "take a second to think and reflect before posting" bullshit really works! I almost went Full Usenet on some idiot on a ttrpg forum, which would have gotten me banned for sure.

Well, that bites. One of our gaming group has opted not to continue in our GURPS campaign after the death of his character, citing boredom with the post-apocalypse. Too bad, his character had been pivotal but the group will survive.

Thankfully he's still interested in our Dungeon Fantasy RPG campaign continuing again in the new year.

Yes! It's Hallowe'en Kiss Candy season in Canada, one of the few things I look forward to all year. These molasses candies are one of the few things I love on this miserable lousy idiot-infested rockball!

For all y’all buying #Palm devices, might be worth installing Plucker and a distiller of your choice (I use Sunrise XP (Windows only), I’m not familiar with how good Plucker Desktop is).

That’ll give you a way to pull web content down onto your device to read it offline.

(Protip with Sunrise XP: do not install the conduit, I’ve not gotten it to actually work.)

Victory! Teams meeting cancelled, my afternoon is now freeeeeee!

I'd intended to do something productive after dinner tonight, but I ended up listening to the Misfits. Neither my wife nor daughter share my love of the song Astrozombies.

Ugh... looks like they've scheduled a Teams meeting for tomorrow to discuss today's Teams meeting. Is this my life now?

Fine. Tomorrow's backdrop will feature select illustrations from Dante Alighieri's Divine Comedy.

Had another pointless meeting with the executives today. My Teams backdrop that read "This Could Have Been an Email" was not appreciated.

Hmmm, Starfinder now has rules for vehicles and mecha. Interesting.
