I made a three page dungeon for you all. It's about how roof damage caused by an onioneer's hubris can lead to violent misunderstandings with other species.
In the last few months:
- Tumblr purged adult content (and a bunch of stuff it misindentified).
- Flickr purged free storage above a limit of 1000 photos/account.
- Myspace deleted 12 years' worth of music.
And Google+ only has two weeks left before Google pulls its plug.

The first guy I met with the name Nguyen introduced himself as "David New-Goo-Yen"
I met about 100,000 other Nguyens before I realized David was probably just fucking with white people.
"You see a carnivorous forest in the distance."
"You mean coniferous?"
"I know what I said."
In a faint voice it asked, "Why did you treat me so? For a prank you have taken my life from me, and I have no other."
"And thereby you will be prevented from further pranks," declared Cugel. "Notice you have drenched me to the skin!"
"It was merely an act of mischief; a small matter surely." The shell-creature spoke in a fading voice. "We of the rocks kmnow little magic, yet I am given the power to curse..."

Ya know what has always annoyed me about Star Trek?
If you ask the computer to locate a person, it will tell you where they are.
If you ask the computer to locate a member of starfleet, it will tell you where their com badge is.
This inconsistency is surpsingly consistent throughout all the 24th century shows.
Some strange, clearly harmful phenomena occurs.
Humans respond to it to protect their lives
Phenomena becomes even more harmful and violent.
Humans figure out that the phenomena is an intelligent creature that didn't mean to hurt them.
Humans try to de-escelate the situation. Alien creature is unmoved by human remorse.
Humans go to drastic measures to appease alien creature.
Alien creature agrees to stop its vengeful rampage. Then chides humans for being "not yet evolved enough" or some shit.

Fuck aliens, man. They're dicks.
This is pretty good. Asimov spilled a lot of ink exploring the consequences of his three laws, it's impressive someone was able to look at it from a new angle.
Farm and land rant Show more
It's really cute that usians think family farming will save them when family farming is part of the problem. White rural folks hoard land and resources (stolen from First Peoples and built with unpaid labor) and refuse to let them pass into the commons until it is too late. Then these lil farms get bought up when grandpa dies because he was too stubborn to make a will. Farm turns into ugly suburbs or is absorbed by other "family farmers" who have thousands of acres under GMO corn year after year.
Y'all want food and land for the commons, you're gonna have to pry it away from both Eustace McRacistface and Monsanto. Start squatting and gardening and give up your idyllic narrative of nuclear families with private property.

@toro "Kingdom Builder" is good. It's simple enough that you can learn it & explain it quickly, but there are enough moving parts to keep it interesting through many plays.
"Paris Connection" is also great, particularly for folks who enjoy Ticket To Ride, but don't feel like playing it for the 1000th time. It's also on sale for real cheap at the moment: https://www.amazon.com/Queen-Games-Paris-Connection-Language/dp/B004JEI8Y8
Is there an accepted long form spelling of Mx. or Ms.?
calling myself 'the wife' and my gf 'co-wife' because I'm such a powerful ally
The fact that so many reviews rate books according to the quality of their "world building" is why I hate nerds.
