    Isn't the "Star Crusher" already a thing in Star Wars?

    "Sun Crusher" I thought. Very different.

    Celestial Body Squeezer What Extinguishes The Light In a Solar System has a ring to it, though.

    Yeah, that's what I was thinking of. Anyways, adapting stuff into a D&D campaign is usually super fun so I bet the players are having a blast.

    I did Battlestar Galactica except with Warforged once and it was extremely silly. One of my players approached me after session three and was like "Hey, are you doing Battlestar Galactica?"
    And I responded, "Yes, and congratulations, you're a secret warforged agent; here are your instructions to sabotage the party without getting caught."

    Eyoooo, All The RPGs!

    My copy of Koriko arrived today, and then we picked up our copy of Lancer at the gamestore! And for good measure, since my partner seemed interested, we got The Slow Knife while there.... I'm really hoping the game designer will get out another run of Artefact, and to then grab Bucket of Bolts at the same time because apparently I collect solo(able) games. Also because wanting Artefact backdoored me into getting Koriko :rotate:

    Someone on the boards a while ago posted about a program called Canvas of Kings, a neat little semi-procedural map-drawing program that is in early access.

    I decided to take the plunge, and see if it could solve a map-making problem for an upcoming D&D session.

    YEF8rpV.png

    This is my first pass at Hierophant's Pledge, where my world's wilderfolk come together and observe the traditional ways and methods. Once a year, the sovereignties also send delegations, and there's a big celebration-slash-debate to decide if all of the civilized kingdoms and republics and whatnot are being nice enough to nature.

    The north half of the map are the permanent camps of the various druid circles, surrounding a colossal circus-like tent where the uncommitted and initiates hang out. The middle ring are where the sovereign diplomats set up camp. Some camps are weirder than others (one grew a tree to hang out in). The southern end is a lake, a fighting pit circle (because the rule of law in nature sometimes means beating the shit out of your debate opponent), and a vast garden. The whole thing abuts a massive mountain cliff to the north, that eventually will house (probably on a new map) an underground complex.

    This program is neat! The cool thing about it is that this map is actually scaled correctly; at full resolution, it's fekkin' massive at like 500x500 70 dpi 5-foot-squares big. It's giving me a warning the map is too big to export whole cloth, so I feel like I'm on the right track. And the program will let me slice up the image into however many arbitrary smaller maps I want, I just need to take the time to do it.

    I hope it gets a bunch more assets, or at least some API or asset extensibility once the developer finally one-point-oh's the thing.

    After owning it for over a year, my partner and I opened up my gifted copy of Terraforming Mars.

    Hey, that's a fun board game! A bit complicated to understand, when perusing the game manual, but once we started playing it the game began to really lock into place.

    My partner focused on expanding an empire via pets and easily beat me when we tallied up our victory points.

    And that makes sense, because I was focused on creating as many oceans as possible. At the half-way point I recognized that my only pathway to victory was to start just purchasing two to three cities per generation, as I had pushed my corporation into amassing as much money as possible every production phase.

    But I also continued to play cards tied to the oceans.

    I even introduced fish to the red planet.

    My ultimate goal? One this very good board game did NOT recognize?

    I didn't want to be king of Mars. I didn't want to be emperor of Mars. I had another title in mind:

    Three days left of Wasteland Degenerates.

    We're approaching $9.5k from 412 backers. The projection thinger says we'll probably exceed $11k since a substantial percentage of business is done in the last 48 hours.

    I'm just dreading the fulfillment phase. There are services you can use for that, but they eat into your profit, and I decided awhile ago that I wanted to do this first one myself.

    Also I've bought more crowdfunded stuff in the past month than probably the last year because creator backers backing your project is a huge deal (your mailing lists get notified that you backed a project. Exalted Funeral backed mine and I got $1300 pledges in one day just from their list) and you want to build bridges to those people.

    Also I got a job writing a solo-friendly adventure for Smörk Borg that may end up in their core book.

    Somehow I became a moderately sized fish in a small pond very quickly. Huh.

    How does backing other crowdfunded stuff stuff work? You back them and hope they reciprocate (and then their followers get notified)?

    Well if you are a creator on the platform in question (in my case BackerKit, because I apparently don't lie the free money from Kickstarter), it will notify the creator of a project you back and all of your followers. That creator might end up backing your project, but these things, as always, are often better off handled separately by colluding with other creators on other forums.

    I had a guy doing a DCC project ask to do a mutual backing scheme, because he figured there would be a lot of overlap. I agreed because DIPLOMACY, but I think we each only got ONE backer from each other (there's a page where you can see referrals and how much they made you).

    But I have been super vocal on Facebook (and sometimes in my project updates) about other 'borg projects, even cross platform (so I'm promoting Kickstarter stuff as well as BK), and the other creators who share the same groups often do the same. One project, HELLPOWER (The Boys, but Mörk Borg) netted me $230 from the creator just backing me at the digital tier (to trigger his mailing list) and mentioning me on Facebook, while the last Vast Grimm drop got me $850 from that 6,000-large mailing list and social media mentions.

    There was a creator, a local Minneapolis guy, who declined to engage in this process and was barely halfway funded with less than two weeks left. The Smörk Borg guys approached him to do a reciprocal thing but he declined because he didn't want people to back other creators' projects and potentially not fund him for higher amounts. Well, we propped him up anyway, because a rising tide lifts all boats, and he scraped by with a successful campaign despite doing almost everything wrong (well, his book DID look cool). That MF is lucky that it's almost anathama for Mörk Borg creators to be assholes. I talked to him after and, after he unclenched, he admitted that he owed a lot to the community.

    Indie games don't have Wizards of the Coast's millions in ad budgets; we basically only have each other, our reputations, and the quality of our work and corresponding hustle.

    I pay for those ads...I think they've almost roughly paid for themselves? We'll see how the final days go, but the exposure is probably more important in the long run than the actual sales from advertising.

    The funny thing is that I managed to target a bunch of Wasteland Weekend people. One of the WW tribes is "The Degenerates," so I have a number of confused dudes and ladies who have profile pics looking like War Boys or Furiosa or whatnot. I'm like, "no, I'm not affiliated with you, but you're awesome!"

    Ooooo, leshy do look really interesting! But I still haven't found any art of them that quite does it for me.

    I did find a neat picture of a mushroom thing that I could say is basically what I look like. I'm a small mushroom person who is sneaky, so maybe I'll tell the group to just imagine this picture but not so THICC and only like three and a half feet tall

    They feel like a real challenge, role-playing wise, which excites me a bunch.

    From my brief exposure to them, I imagine I'd take a lot of inspiration from the Vorlons in Babylon 5.

    One of my favorite Starfinder characters is a 1' long cuttlefish. She drove a tiny flying saucer with a fishbowl on top, and leaned out the top to fire her tiny electro-pistol with her little tentacles.

    Starfinder is filled with weird little (and big!) guys.

    The expansions are all really good too. Thankfully two people in my group have full sets with all expansions and promo cards cause it can get pricey. But damn is a full game interesting.

    Even with just the base set I would highly recomend using the option to draft cards each generation as well as drafting the starting hand of 10. Also draft preludes if you have that.

    So I’ve got game 1 of beast wing this week (after two session 0s), gotta finish a little bit of prep for the opening adventure, and fix up a couple rules. I got a specific request for a cooking related boon (and I really wanted to write one anyway) so I'm working on that, and I re-vamped one of the ships because it had a harpoon + grinder 1-2 punch thing going on that while thematically cool one of my players pointed out was going to be super impractical to pull off (and I kind of agree).

    Yep! We play with all expansions except Turmoil and drafting. I will say that while I like all the xpacs they do sort of get away from the prime concert of Terraforming. Last night I won by a huge margin based entirely on victory points on card, I think I had 2 cities and 2 greenery tiles on the board.

    The drafting really makes the game better for anyone who has played even a couple of games. I was hesitant about Turmoil at first cause it seemed like it would add a lot of complexity, and I suppose it does, but it really adds a lot of interesting decisions as well.

    What we do for setup is:

    1) Deal everyone 2 companies, 4 preludes, 5 general cards. You can look at all these.
    2) Draft the 5 general cards to the left.
    3) Draft 5 more general cards to the right.
    4) Draft the preludes.
    5) Now everyone chooses 1 company, 2 preludes (of the 4 they drafted) and however many of the 10 general cards they drafted which they want to pay for.

    Then at the start of each generation we deal everyone 4 cards and the draft alternates left vs right each generation.
