I really wish I had the creative confidence of late 90s/early 00s D&D RPG designers.
"So, to conclude the Baldur's Gate 2 meeting, hat shall we call the winged elf?"
"Something airy sounding?"
"OK, Aerie, next."
"Uh... Right, Planescape planning: what shall we call the floating skull who bobs around as a reminder of mortality?"

"We've got an outlands town where everyone is backstabbing each other."
"Sounds pretty cursed to me"
"Right you are, Curst it is."
Got a new #rpg. It's unlike anything else I have. You play people opposing the Nazi regime in the 40s. One of the scenes is designed to be played blindfolded and it comes with an audio track.

Anyone have any idea who Ashley Hull is? I got a request to participate in a "Mastodon Admin Survey", but the email is light on details and the address it was sent from bounces – the domain has nothing either. Not gonna click on any links before I know what's up.
I'm almost ready to file this as a phishing attempt, but it would be a pity if it was just a case of a badly conducted survey with good intentions.
Still reading Glitch. First game stuff starts around page 100. The fiction is still great, not sure if I ever would want to run this. The part where I would have to explain things to my players fills me with horror.
