As a kid I learned not to blame video games for my inability to play them. The game wasn't 'unfair,' I just needed to become a better player.
Then I learned that most of the games of my childhood actually WERE cheating. Due to AI limitations, computer opponents were given all sorts of hidden advantages.
Looking back, this is basically a perfect analogy for my relationship to capitalism.
A table inspired by a recent session in which my players consulted a spymaster. They wanted to learn if the evil wizard they were about to confront had any weaknesses to exploit. So I wrote 100 of them and put them in a table.
Found this in a school library. Managed to read/skim most of it during down time between classes.
Despite being super old, it surprisingly sorta worked as a piece of trans literature for children. I'd be super curious to find a copy and do a more thorough reading, or hear from a trans person who read it as a kid.
@PresGas I decided to answer the same questions for myself: https://alexschroeder.ch/wiki/2020-01-31_My_tropical_campaign
@Stelvi_North Hello there, nice to meet you. :)
Here I thought I was so incredibly careful about version control, yet today my editor has found *two* sentences in the Duchy of the Damned Dancing Duke which just...don't have their second halves.
Fortunately by going back to an earlier version of the document I was able to find it. No idea how they wound up getting truncated, but I'm super glad that I've kept records of every major phase the document has gone through.
Simple writer boi. He/Him/They.
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
