7 Things That Make You Look Older Than You Really Are 

1) Not getting enough sleep

2) Overindulging in alcohol

3) Accidentally referring to your friends by the names of the ancestors they resemble.

4) Ignoring horoscopes because “All the stars move anyway, so who cares.”

5) Enjoying swing music.

6) The section of your wardrobe made from woven reeds and lizard pelts.

7) At every opportunity, you mention “This all used to be underwater” while gesturing at everything.

a trap 

The trap is no longer set.

But for one fine day, it led to a Discord called A Cask of Amontillado where the only text chat room was called -small-space-behind-a-brick-wall and the only emoji was a pile of bricks.

boy, I wish I knew what to do with all this rare, delicious Amontillado I've acquired

I don't think I signed up for the same Daily Dracula list as everyone else because every email I get keeps asking why I haven't made it to the castle yet and expects me to know more about real estate in London than I actually do.

If you ever get the idea that you might want to stream any RPG thing I've written, let me know.

I like to think I'm approachable, and I can hook you up with art assets download keys for giveaways, etc. etc.

(Historically, I only find out my games were streamed after it's already happened, so...)

Through the open window, I can sometimes hear the distant gobble of wild turkeys.

Makes me laugh, every time.

What are they getting up to out there.

1/ #ttrpg people, did you know that parties of treasure hunters were totally a real thing in Early Modern Europe?

The composition of these adventuring parties was a bit different than in standard #dnd , of course - but a mixture of professions was considered essential then as it is now.

You*: Tommy used to work on the docks...

Me**: Oh snap, now THIS is a story hook. He USED to work on the docks? I bet he's up to something even MORE exciting now, huh? I'm listening, I'm listening!

* Jon Bon Jovi, writing the lyrics to Livin' On A Prayer

** Me, who thinks this song is a person talking to me, about to tell me a story, for the purpose of this bit. In real life, I am capable of recognizing music as an omnidirectional medium, as my lawyer will tell you.

A project I have to write sometime in the near term is a supernatural mystery set at a race track, for the Brindlewood Bay RPG.

My brother told me about a terrifying flayed man-waterhorse hybrid from Scottish folklore so now I'm wondering if I can work it in without making things TOO spooky for what's supposed to be a "cozy mystery" genre piece with a touch of the supernatural thrown in.

Another quick question for people who speak and write in languages other than English: Do you get upset when people use translation software to reply to your posts if they are not native speakers/writers? Why or why not?

If y'all could boost this post so that I can get more responses from people who speak/write English and at least one other language, that would be great! #CommunityDevelopment

hey, rpg folks: do you know what MOSAIC Strict is?
