I am just now recently dusting off my diaspora account (see recent activity) since I have a cold, and thinking about where to take this. I have been following very closely @Joseph Teller's methods of managing diaspora and I also have worked a bit on zot/hubzilla/friendica et al. I really admire the work he puts into management, but know it IS a great deal of effort (you really are a powerhouse, Joseph!!).

If I decide to really work on aspects et al, I would dust off another diaspora instance and really manipulate it to my taste, but how do you forward or communicate here? Masto has a forwarding option that is really nice, though not perfect either.

I really want it all and have everyone on the same federated world, but there is still two major protocols; each with their own advantages and disadvantages.

Here's a series of articles (six in total) about how rules shape player behavior and gaming experience, why D&D isn't a good game for stories and why so many groups show the same problematic behavioral patterns

PresGas (OSR) Aspect reshared this.

oh and btw this is how it looks on friendica:

Yep, that sounds about like what I saw when I played with hubzilla. They are similarly constructed.



I wrote a bit about my preferences for story games, if anyone is interested:

I found this article to be very concise and on-spot, awesome read! (and short too :D)

Marco vuole provare a far giocare di ruolo Giulia, la sua ragazza



We watched the unhappy vampire through the store door.
"Should I invite him? They can only enter if invited."
"We have a large 'Welcome in' sign. He's invited."
"So why isn't he coming in?"
"Automatic door. The camera can't see him."
"Oh. Accessibility fail."
"Yeah. Go open it."

Seven-Wide RPG Challenge


Someone approaches you and says that they want to read and play seven roleplaying games, but want those seven games to cover the widest possible range of the #rpg experience, design concepts, play styles and so forth. They need you to pick those seven games. What list do you give them?

I program for over 20 years. I just closed some tabs from yesterday:

"how to create directory in python"
"concat lists python"
"load 2 models tensorflow"
"how set pythonpath"

and some others.

And yes. I have a masters degree in informatics.

You don't need to learn things that you rarely need & are just 1 duckduckgo away by heart. Knowing that they exist and what to search for is sufficient.

Important are the thing you cannot search. Concentrate on those.

I program in Javascript every day, and I still need to look up that it's 'includes()' rather than 'contains()'.



Hey, I am in an urgent need of a sensitivity reading regarding #racism. It's one paragraph of English text and I need it within the next ~2h. Will pay a Ko-Fi (or directly through Paypal). Boosts very welcome! #sensitivityreading



Body Language in Roleplaying Games

by Jack

Today I want to talk about body language in table-top RPG. What's body language? What's mimic? It's expressing concepts, things, or emotions without using speech or any verbal medium. Moving, acting, interacting, mimicking, keeping in contact: these are all body languages.

Body language is (in my opinion) mostly worth to be put in game rules because of strai

There's this local indie game design company with a new game on Kickstarter and I want it.

"Players take control of a cast of characters working to dismantle the aristocracy the only way they know how: summoning demons. This game is a one-shot area-control roleplaying game for 3-6 players, played on a story map (a pentagram)."

Wow.

An analysis of the problems with the words "immersion" and "fun" when talking about games. I don't 100% agree with everything, but the underlying message that they're terms that are too generic, broad and misunderstandable clicks with me.
