It’s so let’s participate for the first time! I’m a French & Canadian (but not French-Canadian!) half-black game programmer by day, and aspiring illustrator and writer by night. I hope you like these!

The excellent Origins Chocolate Bar in New Westminster is doing chocolate subscription boxes! Here’s their selection for January (I took the safe “dark chocolate” subscription). Visit them and/or subscribe!

People of the Lower Mainland! If you want some real good French croissants and other baked goods, I just realized that Ca Croustille Bakery is delivering every week-end! Go go go! ccbakery.ca/

And by the way, having only very recently upgraded to a Face ID iPhone, the face recognition unlock’s only upside so far is to easily unlock your phone when you have gloves on.

It took me a whiiiiile to understand that this icon on my glove finger means that I can use them on a touch screen… (which is neat)

Nice overview of the Alien RPG Starter Set by Seth Skorkowsky. It even made me realize I got a couple rules wrong the first time I ran it! youtube.com/watch?v=j6PXUl4DyY

You know you’re looking at a French RPG convention when you have never heard of 80% of the games listed in the schedule… 😅

Unapologetically Pacific Northwestern, these wooden dice from Adventure Dice look so nice on a rainy day!

I usually don’t pay too much attention to GoFundMe campaigns, but when the people in need are the original designers and illustrators of RuneQuest, I figure I can pitch in a bit: gofundme.com/f/care-for-the-ph

The Covid-19 stats of bi-lingual countries where one of the cultures is French remind us that, well, French people are fucking stupid

This is a nice look at how Fight Club (both the book and the movie, which I loved) was written, including anecdotes I wasn’t aware of! youtu.be/GiOuUP9z7l4

Just watched The Goonies with the kids… let’s just say that this movie still has it!

Two eagles doing circles over the nearby lake… I guess we might have a little eagle family there 🦅

Here’s my Chaosium autumn bundle, fresh from the friendly postman! I probably won’t get to the bottom row anytime soon, but I will definitely start reading the top row right away!

Haha, the Pendragon 6th edition QuickStart/preview includes one drawing of a woman knight somewhere on a page and there are a couple people getting angry and “worried” on the forums. I shouldn’t be surprised but still…

We watched Return Of The Jedi tonight with the kids and one of them named the ewoks “mini fluffy grizzly bears” but then changed it to “hamster Chewbaccas”, and I think that second one is a winner…

Well that’s it, I delivered my first (quite rough in places) draft of “The Parchments of Tam” for the Journal d’Indochine Kickstarter… 27k words of Mythos-infused spy thriller action in 1945 Hue!
