    this job application is throwing me some serious shade
    Are you currently employed?

    well technically no since I just submitted my PhD so I'll click 'no' and
    Please describe what you are currently doing:

    *stares down at cheeto-stained belly and moth-eaten underwear*

    oh no

    am I weird for being annoyed with all the species choices in FFGs SW RPG? This is an, admittedly, stupid position but if I ran a game with newbies to RP in SW unfamiliar with anything outside of the movies it'd just be humans.

    Well, there's nothing stopping you from doing that regardless of how many species there are, and many groups have more familiarity and will appreciate the extra choices.

    Plus there are a number of non-human characters in the movies.

    Also Bothans rule, you fucking racist.

    So yeah, I agree that this is a stupid position. :P

    Of course with the choice to be from planets like tatooine or coruscant or corellia or whatever familiar from the movies.

    This was actually the hardest part for me, being only familiar with the movies.

    Like, I know about Bothans and Duros and stuff, and in any case the pictures are right there so I can recognize them easily.

    The cities were tougher for me. I don't really remember the names of cities and planets and stuff all that well.

    for all my complicated academic opinions about the tyranny and policing of "canon" in fan culture, I still love how Wookieepedia now has a tiny stub article for their "canon" entries and a 7000 word essay on every alien race under the "legends" entries

    hmmm @matt has a problem recommendations for selling a gun? consignment takes forever, not interested in going half price to a pawn shop. previously when buying/selling guns i was part of the local community but not knowing anyone who'd be interested makes it annoying.

    fwiw it's not rare or anything (g19 p much new condition)

    Aaaand an hour of streaming and not a single view. Ugh.

    I know I desperately need to up my production values, but actually getting an audience with something obscure is taxing.

    Sal defriended me on Facebook. (I knew she would, we’d talked about it.) to help her get over it.

    I wish I could’ve expressed that I didn’t want us to break up but I was so tired of wasting her time. She’ll find someone new.

    Great. I wanted to go cry in the shower ANYWAY, stupid BRAIN. I wish she was here. I ducked up as usual.

    like, the Bothan "legends" article is this sprawling mess of biology, pictures of Bothan ladies in their underwear, discussions on the morality and role of the Bothans as spies during the rebellion

    and then the "canon" entry is about a hundred words long and doesn't even talk about what they look like since everything about them is no longer "real" aside from many of them dying for information

    You could let us know you’re streaming. I find my niche games do the best often, but I don’t know how obscure you mean.

    I was in such a shit mood streaming tonight. I should’ve just not. I don’t think mondays work very well anyway.

    I got a ton of viewers doing Stardew Valley but its not obscure.

    In fairness, I don't have a viewership, just bots.

    There are some PA people with viewers. I think they just maintain an actual schedule.

  • Havelock2.0Havelock2.0 Sufficiently Chill The Chill ZoneRegistered User regular
    I think it's in part because all the major focus protagonists from the movies are human save the droids and chewie. It gives the audience something familiar to latch onto and identify with in a wholly unfamiliar and alien setting.

    A fair number of charters watch VH, me and Sniper regularly. I think I pull more randos and VH has a more dedicated chat following.

    See I loved the ffg books for this because they fleshed out some of known planets from the movies. Tatooine and Jakku though are like, you don't even need to expand on them. They're tabula rasa with the only pertinent theme being they're lawless desolate shitholes that you're lucky to escape from

    I think once I get another place of my own and a reliable source of income I may try my hand at twitch streaming. But this is like a year out at the very least. I'm packing my gaming pc in a couple days before I move and I know this fucker ain't coming out for a while.

    The nice thing about casual streaming, provided you have a decent connection without someone watching Netflix on it, is that you can just let it run in the background and see what happens.

    Streaming with a goal can be rough.

    One of my sub-goals is getting properly set up for MHW PC streaming.

    Not sure my PC can handle streaming it solo, though.
