Cultural consulting on Chris Longhurst's Bleak Spirit was fun as hell. The attention to respectful detail even in such a concise game impressed me, as did the concord between system and setting. If you like somber, atmospheric fantasy, check it.

they out here arguing about the Little Mermaid's race and I'm sitting here thinking, is no one gonna talk about how uncannily similar this woman's smile is to ariel's from 1989?

@Yoric I have to approve the comments before they show up—maybe I haven't gotten to yours yet? But you're very welcome!

When Dungeons & Dragons led Tolkien's racist orcs to the US, they attacked new targets. Let's talk model minorities, dehumanization, uncomfortable half-orcs, poor excuses … and how gamers and designers can reclaim and rehabilitate orcs.

I just watched white cops arrest a Black woman in the street outside my apartment. Then I stopped a fight between her angry boyfriend and some belligerent white people who tried to, among other things, steal his car. Y'all I had JUST started calming down after yesterday's racism.

I'm a stretch goal for Hearts of Wulin! My cyberpunk setting pits the rivers & lakes against globalization & commercialization. How can yóuxiá keep passion & traditions alive when cultural appropriators teach stolen secrets over social media? Will bionic augmentations expand accessibility to a world of strenuous physical demands, or concentrate violent power in technocrats' grasp? What new allies & rivals hail from Africa, the Americas, and Oceania?

I've stepped down from working on One Child's Heart. If you wanna talk about why, please message me privately, but let's not discuss it here.

Hi, I'm a therapist, psychologist, or psychiatrist on a TV show or in a movie. Every sentence I speak is painstakingly crafted to trigger as many human beings as possible, but especially my patient.

"Less of a question, more of a comment." NO. DO NOT. Imma teach you how not to be that guy at panels—& answer the questions (about honor, gender, cyberpunk, & Steven Universe) we ain't had time for at PAX East's "Designing Asian Settings and Themes" panel!

‪The bus I’m on just drove past an expo hall where an alpaca convention was going down and I want to dive out the window and run in there‬

I wrote a ttRPG about an imaginary fighting video game about international conspiracies, and now you can get it for free! Iron Street Combat’s custom hand-to-hand combat subsystem painstakingly replicates the experience of haphazard button-mashing in a game you don’t really understand how to play.

@Whidou You got DONDI RICE OR REESE OR WHATEVER and FORM 8594! You do things by the book and make sure to tell the government when you buy a company. If only the government could get your name right one of these days. So ungrateful.

I want y'all to know I came here to make a Hudson Yards joke about Wilson Fisk brokering this deal or something but I stalled out staring in horror at that gerrymandered map linking HY to some unrelated housing projects an entire manhattan away
