Important crow update 

AAAAH! Twice in one day!

It's never happened before but now it's twice in one day!

A peanut, gently arcing in defiance of gravity, plucked from the sky by a corvid aerial acrobat!

Wowee!

We now return you to your regularly scheduled non-feeding-peanuts-to-crows news.

Important personal update: I tossed a peanut to a crow in a high arc and that crow leapt up, took flight and caught the peanut *in the air*.

Please stay tuned for any further developments of this exciting story.

Does anyone know what a thomasson is? Let me explain.

Wikipedia would describe a thomasson is a useless structure or relic that has been preserved as part of a building or environment that has become a sort of piece of art in itself. Examples would include some stairs that mysteriously go nowhere, a gate without a fence, an old now unused telephone pole standing free on its own, etc. On object that has the appearance of conceptual art even though they were not originally created to be such.

CALIFORNIA 2020: the game

In one image, an entire solo game you can play at home to become the hero California (and the entire year of 2020) needs.

Hey pals! My RPG collective launched a Kickstarter today with RPG scenarios for Trophy Dark, a fantasy-horror game where characters are destroyed by their own desire.

It's a really fun play-to-lose game and we've got scenarios featuring grave robbery, a death race between the stars, undead liches in a doomed ziggurat, a bird goddess inspired by Filipino lore... and more!

Early bird pledges today only for first day backers!
kickstarter.com/projects/coldh

We built our kickstarter cast off of people we're genuinely fans of, but the cast of 9 of the kickstarter includes a lesbian couple, a trans woman, 3 nbs, several misc queer people, a black canadian, and 2 people from the southeast asian RPG scene.

I don't want to promo amazing people based on their identities when their skills are incredible, but if you'd like to know you're not supporting a cis straight whitebread cast, you're not.

I've got a Kickstarter launching tomorrow with some friends. We're going to compile 9 different RPG scenarios for Trophy Dark and socks are gonna be rocked.

Grave robbing! Crawling through a desert looking for angelic gold! Riding an interstellar drag racer to your doom! Lich kings vying to extend their lives in a doomed ziggurat! Wow!

You can sign up to be reminded when we launch tomorrow:

oh hey, I made a rules-light RPG about robbing graves and then put it on sale for half-off with a sales goal of 2 sales because the idea made me laugh, so if you want to spend $2.50, help me hit my dumb goal, and also be able to play a game with friends where you're graverobbing criminals dodging the law AND the supernatural, well...

total dear diary: tea and piracy 

Best pre-COVID lockdown investment: bought a giant disc of fused Chinese tea from the local noodle house and it's delicious and lasts forever

Worst pre-COVID lockdown investments: bought a new pair of shoes that arrived right before lockdown

also a year before invested in a Kickstarter for a big board game, lots of little story chapters, figurines, etc.

Luckily some pirates recreated it on TTS so the game boxes in my closet may not be in vain

oh and NEXT you'll be telling me that BODY SNATCHING is ILLEGAL I suppose?

Alchemy is the pursuit of purity, a metaphysical concept that is horrifying, as well as the foundation of much of modern science.

In this thread I will do some preview doodles of 4 (or 5) of the Trophy dark incursions that will eventually make up kickstarter.com/projects/coldh , a project by @signalstation , myself, and some (very impressive) friends.

The game system we're writing for, Trophy Dark, is one of my favorites for two reasons:
1) It's rules light
2) It's play-to-lose

Your character only has 1 stat to worry about: Ruin. When your Ruin is full, the character is "lost" and you narrate what happens.

The point is to tell a good story by guiding your character to an interesting end. You're freed of the burden of trying to "beat" the scenario because it'll always end in doom. You can relax and find the coolest way to get there.
