@kensanata i loved the latest podcast episode. I'm going to be sad when you're done but I'm enjoying it now.

If you like to make things and you really want to go down the rabbit hole, get a 3D printer.

@kensanata i wanted to let you know that my partner heard me talking about your ‘rule of cool’ encumbrance rule and she is using it in a 5E game that she’s running for her fellow students. Apparently it’s a big hit ☺️

Finally got the blocked login for G+ that says it's no longer available for consumers, blah.

I feel weird about it - I had an account since 2012, and used it heavily for a while. I don't miss the bullshit or much of the recent content at all, but damn if something getting shut off after 6 years of use doesn't leave a hole.

@kensanata I am toying with the idea of setting up Oddmuse for myself; do you know if it plays well with nginx?

I'm still not sure what I think of 5E D&D, particularly organized play via Adventurer's League.
I just agreed to take over the AL administrative duties at my local game store, even with my ambivalence toward the rules.
*sighs*
Oh well, it gets me out of the house for something other than work.

@kensanata Well that solves that - it looks like Ulisses is offering a PDF version of the original on DTRPG as PWYW.

@kensanata this translation looks like it's from the most recent release. Your podcast made me curious about the game; I wonder how hard it would be to find an earlier version in German? My reading comprehension is much better than my speech.

Ugh I spent all morning banging my head against a silly python program, and then spent an hour writing it in perl. I'm not saying python is bad, just that my brain works better with perl.

Frotz @frotz

I'm trying to find a relatively easy to work with TUI for perl, python, or ruby. I want to write a program to help me manage the 5E adventure league games that I'm running now.
The main feature I'm looking for is an easily accessible screen. I've found a couple in python that look promising but I'd like to hear from folks what they have used and like.

you know, I love mastodon but i am kind of annoyed w/ the upgrade process atm. Had to use ruby 2.5.1 because while rbenv installed 2.5.3 it didn't build bundle, and then I spent like 20 minutes trying to find the .ruby-version file after passing over it twice in the directory listing.
Finally, asset compilation failed with the message 'Compilation Failed: ' and no reason given.
It's not like I'm running it on some obscure platform - it's fucking Ubuntu and a non-docker install.

Frotz @frotz

I figure I'll give this a shot - maybe it'll turn into something workable, and if not *shrugs*

Giving 5E a try tonight with an Adventure League game.

Is Apple really the only computer hardware manufacturer right now that makes a standalone trackpad/touchpad? I know Logitech used to make one, but I'm not paying some asshat on Amazon $260 or more for a $70 device. I really like my old Thinkpad but I am tired of the mediocre touchpad.

TFW you realize it's nearly 21:30 and you haven't eaten your evening meal yet. I guess it's a salad. Again.

Frotz @frotz

@kensanata I decided to set up another mastodon server. I'm currently the only user here, but maybe I will change that at some point in the future. I'm finished with G+ and the game community there, I think. I'm hoping that Mastodon's "community" (such as it is) is as diverse and fun as I remember. Good to see you, at any rate 😀
