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.

yes, claws and teeth but also... a knife

too scary for most folks but it's almost halloween so I thought: okay

You can't know for sure there's not a ghost moving this ouija board. Maybe they just like to make the triangle thing go zoom-zoom. Not everybody's super into spelling like you are, you big nerd. This ghost is cool.

Just a friendly reminder that if you like any sort of artistic output from an independent artist: talk that stuff up! Help it find its audience!

(So while I'm at it: if you like movies about friends just making films with almost no budget, like Be Kind, Rewind, or those kids who were remaking Raiders of the Lost Ark shot for shot on VHS, then maybe check out DINOSAURS IN A MINING FACILITY. It's a good time!)

Halloween must be on the minds of role-players because I've seen a huge spike in the number of downloads for my horror RPG one-shot DIE, GRAVE ROBBER, DIE!

I hope that someone out there is actually going to play my scenario about trying to recover a stolen body this spooky season. Ya love to see it.

My wife was upset I was calling our new kitten an imp a few weeks ago. He now has a weird face, gangly limbs, a slight pot belly, and is randomly attacking other members of the household for 1d4 damage.

I feel like I am owed an apology.

Super happy about this one: published a little RPG thing with two NPC factions, and adventure hooks.

1. A quartet of rat thieves who have a set of heists they need help with: Slapjaw, Big Teeth, Tick Talk, and Captain Lieutenant Jacobus Wet-Torch Furlick.

2. A sky courier delivery service that requires strapping yourself to a flock of pigeons.

New Signal mix just dropped. Front-loaded with electronic sounds, but there's also some post-punk, and regular punk, and griot music from Mauritania... the usual eclectic selection.

oh, you're a wizard? you like books? books that help you make little lights, make little sounds?

good for you, it's so hard to find joy, good for you

3. A shark can smell blood from great distances. I can do the same with a fish that has been microwaved. We are both predators, moving through different mediums. Above the boardwalk, fried dough and games. Beneath the boardwalk, dead fish with white eyes.

2. All are unsolved. Every crime. All set in motion by circumstances created before we were born. You cannot have cause and effect without seeking out the first cause. Did I steal a candy bar or did the universe explode into being?

1. All revealed. No more hiding. The answers are upon us. The unrelenting questions have done their work. A worm on a hook.
