Since this instance is shutting down, I have regretfully moved to a new instance.
I probably won't be tooting from here again. I've set up a new account for myself at:
See you there.
And here's to WeaponVsAC, of blessed memory. Alea iacta est.
People complain about mastadon.social being regarded as the "main" or "real" instance, and say that folks should spread out more. And I totally agree.
But I've been trying to find a new instance for awhile now, and 90% of them are closed to new registration, and so far all the ones that aren't have rules I know I can't live with.
It's starting to seem like mastadon.social is the only "real," reliable option.
Somebody put together a monster manual that is specifically about what happens when you try and eat monsters that you kill in your dungeon. I have it somewhere but I can't find it.
I'd like to suggest that if someone eats a beholder eye and pass a constitution test, their charisma has a 50% chance of going up or down by 2
because beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Just checked here after a couple of weeks... We're closing? That sucks. We haven't been around for a long while, but I've come to like this instance.
I'm wondering if I should look for a new instance, or if I should just make my mastodon.social account (which I originally intended to use for more personal stuff) as my RPG account.
Hrmn, I like a lot of folks on the LGBT.io instance, but they have rules against advertising, and I do occasionally like linking to books I have for sale.
Probably a better option for me will be finding an instance that doesn't care about RPGs, then connect to RPG people through federation.
I took care to read all of dice.camp's rules before joining. Unfortunately, it never occurred to me that their anti-harassment policy meant I'd get scolded for saying "Non-OSR games are trash."
Or, more accurately, it didn't occur to me that the owner would take personal offense and bend over backwards to justify an official scolding based on a policy I was obviously not violating.
Alright, turns out dice.camp is terrible. I'll try to figure out something else I guess.
I have a new account at wandering.shop
So what's a good Mastadon instance to move to?
What are you moving to, @Frotz ? Anybody else?
Still no account set up email from dice.camp 😞
As this instance is closing down, I have created an account in dice.camp. Follow me there!
OK, I made a different userid on dice.camp, and it immediately went up. Dunno why.
I have a more general account on octodon.social and a newly created account on dice.camp. Originally, I had also planned on using my account on mammouth.cafe for uploading pictures or talking about Swiss politics but I never did.
As a parting gift to weapons vs ac, A treasure/trap for your dungeon.
A small bag of powder is found with a handy little note. The note says "Inhale this dust and you will know when Trolls, goblins or other goblinoids are within 100' of you."
If inhaled, the character develops anaphylaxis to the creatures. When they are within 100' their mouth and eyes get itchy and uncomfortable. As they fail constitution rolls the symptoms get worse each exposure until their breathing is cut off by swelling.
Let's also remember there is keybase and an osr_community team over there. It (for now) is open and @kensanata and I co-admin it.
I'm out of it for a little bit and. . .
I'm trying to get over on dice.camp if they'll send me a confirmation email. Grumble grumble.
