Back around 1993, I wrote a TTRPG called "SLUGS" - the Satanic, Loathsome, Unwholesome Game System. Only 200 were ever made. About 20 pages, copied & stapled.

Today, folks pointed me at a FB discussion about that game. It has fans.

Put your weird out there. People will love it.

We should do another battlestations thread.

@madrush I’ve been maintaining a metal Mohawk most of the pandemic… getting trimmed up the day before my flight.

For those of you who play Blizzard games.

The employees have asked you not play them at all tomorrow as a message to the company.

Digital Strike and all that.

Need to up my style a little before DefCon. Been a while since I’ve really gone out.

Did Pearl Jam release any albums after Vs.?

Asking for a friend.

Introductions (selfie; eye contact) 

Lol anyway, thank you for reading my Ted Talk; follow if you want more incredibly cringe-y, late night introspection, though I don't actually play videogames anymore so don't expect me to post much about those. 😅

Oh I also make and build fancy things in JavaScript for newsmedia in London, UK; my background's in journalism but I pretty much exclusively write code instead of prose. I promise I won't post anything media- or politics-related here, though; that's what birbsite's for (though I might boost some stuff in that vein on occasion 💚).

I identify as nonbinary transfemme and use "they" pronouns. Please feel free to boost any of my stuff, I don't mind!

To be clear, I wish no ill-will to the devs or non-bad actors in this scenario... my earlier statement may have been too glib.

But the leadership and members that made this possible? my earlier statement stands.

A bunch of technomancers in the fediverse. Keep it fairly clean please. This arcology is for all who wash up upon it's digital shore.
