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! youtube.com/watch?v=Z2yZwh_gCI

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.

@sir has released new results on forgeperf.org/.

A great shout-out to user mappu04 who identified the roadblock that made us look bad in previous run!

The worst-case results for huge repos still a known open issue, potentially resolved by caching in coming gitea release.

NOW OUR CALL FOR CONTRIBUTION: If you agree with us that accessibility is important, and would like to help resolving the accessibility issues tagged in the report: please have a look and consider a pull request!

I cleaned up my shelves so it’s time for a shelfie! “Featured” books rotate about monthly. The last picture shows the books currently checked out by me. The 5e books missing from the slipcase are in the older kid’s room.

Ironically, trying to write multi-threaded code while multitasking various kid-related things around the house is pretty complicated.

So all my websites are going down soon for a big server upgrade… fingers crossed.

There are two types of quarantined people: those who make bread, and those who make whipped cream. And I’m… well to be honest I’m hoping to be both.

DriveThruRPG/OneBookshelf is preparing a covid bundle with proceedings going to Doctors Without Borders, the World Food Program and No Kid Hungry.

If you publish on DriveThruRPG/OneBookshelf, please consider temporarily donating some of your creations to this bundle!

Current status: telling the kids to behave and do their homework, otherwise “we will have to get dressed and go outside get some exercise” (cue children screams, scrambling for papers and pens)

My Traveller quarantine care package was delivered last week and, combined with the couple books I already had, I’m starting to have a decent space-opera gaming section on my shelves

Yesterday I decided to expand the quite linear WFRP Starter Set scenario we are playing into a more interesting intrigue. So I started mapping out NPCs/factions/plots (warning: some spoilers if you zoom in!). It kinda got a bit complicated…
