The regular dentist visit is back on track in a few weeks. You know what it means: the season of flossing has started again!

Oh I think I missed this: Netflix is making an “Old Guard” movie! I’m not totally sold on it based on the trailer, but hey, that’s money going to the creators, so it’s all good

“I’m trying to establish a game system simple enough for beginners, detailed enough for experts, flexible enough for everybody”. I had missed this nice bit of GURPS history:

“Who Framed Roger Rabbit” is one of my top 3 movies of all time so this short “oral history” article is very much my jam, especially seeing the early animation test:

TTRPG hot take: if “system matters” at your table, you might not be playing a role playing game, and instead be playing a narrative board game

Watched Tremors last night with the older kid. He said it’s not very scary, so it’s “less of a horror movie, and more of a thriller”.

“Robin’s Laws of Good Game Mastering” is indeed the best GMing book around, if only because it’s super short and to the point. Recommended!

Looks like all interesting children books start with a 12 year old main character… What recommendations do you have for 8-11yo readers besides Harry Potter and Roald Dahl stories?

I’ve been playing the first Monkey Island (remastered) with the kids and… let’s say there’s been a lot of pirate insults thrown around lately. Also: they love speaking like Stan the salesman, especially the manic hand waving!

I am completely baffled by how the 13th Age rulebook assumes prior knowledge of D&D: it doesn’t list or explain character abilities! The only list is a short parenthetical (p30), and the only explanation is in the index entry (p310+).

I had a whole bunch of leftover cardboard boxes from all those RPG books I ordered recently… so I had to do something with them! What do YOU do with your cardboard? (and yes I need to add some Runes and decorations)

I found a stash of old unused stickers so I decided to decorate my old Linux laptop!

I’ve got the week off so I figured I would start it by updating my RPG book collection over on RPGGeek… I have now passed the 400 items mark! Errr…. yay?

Well that’s it, I’m officially a Kickstarter “superbacker” now apparently. Does that mean I have a problem? Should I hold off on backing RPGs? More importantly is there a way to hide this from my wife? 😅

That’s a pretty good video on Moore’s run on Marvelman. I want to re-read those books now!

The Boy was a decent movie with a fun (though ultimately unoriginal) twist. The Boy 2 takes that twist, turns it around, and fucks it up into the stratosphere of stupidity. Uugggh.
