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 youtube.com/watch?v=dE73tpMvBh

“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: sjgames.com/ill/archive/2020-0

“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: io9.gizmodo.com/who-framed-rog

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! sjgames.com/ill/archive/2020-0

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.
