    I never got why people do that. In my experience flirting with trans women leads to a much more fulfilling experience.

    In all seriousness, I hope they realise that there are more fulfilling things to do than to harass anybody.

    I hate it when YouTube disabled the dislike button. I think the dislike button is a very important part of Youtube because you're free to dislike a video that you dislike.

    Naw. If you don't like the video don't watch it and just leave. You can just leave if you don't like a thing, it's okay.

    Or you could be like the guy I was talking about and leave a nasty comment saying you're disliking the video, but then you'd be, as you yourself said, a total creep.

    Becuase when you're doing something that you don't want to do but need to do, like going to work or school, you're anticipating it being over and when you're anticipating something your perceptions go into high gear.

    When you're relaxed or doing something you enjoy, your perceptions are focused elsewhere so... You would not believe the number of times I've been watching or reading something in the evening and then the next thing I know it's noon the next day and I haven't slept.

    To be fair, in practical terms hitting the dislike button just gets the video promoted more. Let a bad video be known by just not having many views, it's the best way.

    I return to YouTube a few weeks ago. I just took a week's break off of YouTube. I mean people are free to dislike any video they want. I just don't watch their videos at all. I just still think getting rid of the dislike button is a dumb idea anyway. I don't care how many dislikes I get in my videos. That doesn't change anything for me and my content.

    By far the biggest tragedy is that the "I have no strong feelings one way or the other" video will no longer be perfectly balanced.
    “Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

    Oh yeah, it's a ton. From what I understand there's a lot that can go on, and a lot of required aftercare. The three months until you can go beyond snuggling is pretty much a footnote.

    Plus I've heard that it hurts like hell for the next day and that you don't even get a meeting with a vagina designer to pick out what you want.

    Oh, certainly. This is a massive change coming up, even if it is an amazing one.

    Take your time to get used to it, I'm sure you have even more support in meatspace than you're receiving on this forum. But this is big and scary, feeling terrified is just as natural as feeling elated. Feeling both is fine and healthy.

    GMed another session of The One Ring the other day, we're almost to the end of a particular module I have mixed feelings on. It's very, very railroady as the PCs are basically trapped in a nightmare that tells the tragedy of a town took into bondage in the dungeons of Sauron. On the one hand I think it's an interesting way to give some reality to what the heroes are fighting against, as in "This is what happens when Evil wins" and I'm using it as the backstory of the campaign's big bad (who is undead) which isn't in the campaign book. On the other hand it seems to be crafted to be as frustrating ad possible since the PCs can't really alter events. Even before the nightmare begins, the heroes are sent in an unwinnable battle to be saved by that most well-known of Dei ex Machinae, the Eagles and then it gets worse.

    I think this module could be very fun if played with a group that's much more in the "roleplaying" side of "roleplaying game" than the "game" side. And that only describes one of my five players.

    Still, the party's dwarf, wearing nothing but cloth as an armour managed to kill a hill-Troll in single combat, which was pretty dang awesome.




    In other news, I've learned that the company I'm working at, because of some weird byzantine rule only allows me to place paid leave days after May, I can take a couple in advance, but only a couple and having only two days off during the end of year festivities is going to suck. Especially since I'm likely yo be the only one at the office still working.

    Yeah, that module just sounds frustrating. Many modules could do a lot better to not present a linear plot, and to be willing to have lots of content that the group just won't see because they were doing something else.

    I'm still struggling to find a group myself. Been trying to convince friends to play Paleomythic or Those Dark Places. I'd love an excuse to run Jackals due to bronze age fantasy appealing to me, but the character creation rules require quite a lot of point counting. So sadly I'm having to write adventures rather than using a module, and so scouting potential players is delayed for the moment.


    As for holiday booking, that seems a little excessive. The first few months is understandable, but that's half a year away, and didn't you start months ago anyway?

    Okay... client interview Thursday.

    If this goes well my paycheck will basically triple.

    I am nervous, but excited and for once I feel ready.
    It's hard to forgive those who have wronged you but every moment you don't is another they have hurt you.

    I'm writing up my notes for a BITD session I have planned for Friday. One of the players is the DM of my 5e game, so I'm throwing in expies of the party (with the other players' permission) to catch him off guard.

    But basically everyone at the day job's off sick, the new COVID regulations are coming into place and I'm tired from covering bakery every day (I've had one day off in November)...I hope this works out.
    Hi, I'm back, I guess. ^_^

    I spent a good chunk of the last few days brainstorming homebrew for someone else's homebrew.

    Must be good homebrew.
    “Evil is evil. Lesser, greater, middling, it's all the same. Proportions are negotiated, boundaries blurred. I'm not a pious hermit, I haven't done only good in my life. But if I'm to choose between one evil and another, then I prefer not to choose at all.”

    I mean, it is only Homebrew by a technicality: It's written by Holden Shear, who used to be the head designer for Exalted.
    Exalted was originally pitched(and advertized) as the ancient mythic pre-history of the Classic World of darkness and one of his ream projects was making a crossover game between the two so, once he was let go from OCP he decided "screw it" and made his own homebrew version.

    The first draft took him like, two weeks, a few months later he released a companion book, that was back in 2019, and very recently he released a revised and expanded edition

    He's also apparently working on a Chronicles of Darkness version that's already been playtested.

    The expanded version ads rules for Liminal Exalted—a supernatural being interfered in an attempt to either bring the dead back to life or create new life from death, resulting in monstrous Demigod with horrific powers and a driving mission to prevent the Unquiet Dead from interfering with the living and vice versa while trying to figure out who and what they are—and the take on them in the book draws heavily on the Promethean inspiration for the Liminals: You have no soul, only a broken source of divine power, your existence is unnatural and wrong and your body feels alien. How do you cope?

    The possibility exists that a Liminal who follows the right path and gains enough understanding can transcend their broken existence and I got curious and brainstormed with some people on another forum how to handle that mechanically.
