This has gotten so bad that I generally disable retweets on every account I follow. I miss some stuff, but there’s a lot more signal and a lot less noise. Additionally, the best retweets are quotes with additional thoughts or framing.

Hey there, I’m trying to order the new Harley LEGO with my VIP account, but when I go to “Sign In with LEGO Account” on , it sends me to this page and just shows a loading indicator and doesn’t make any progress. Is something broken?

But there is one school of magic where you inscribe runes, for that, I feel like you must have the tools and find something to carve into (candle, rock, whatever), otherwise the point of that school of magic is moot.

However, I like the way Forbidden Lands handles ingredients. Normally you do not need ingredients to cast spells, but if you have them, they offer a bonus when casting (Forbidden Lands is a dice pool system, so typically it adds one die to the pool).

In 5e, for most spells, I hand wave it away if you have a component pouch and the ingredient isn’t insanely expensive (see 1,000g bowls ) then you don’t need to worry about it. Over a certain threshold—maybe 50g), then you need to acquire it.

I’m not helping. I bought both Magical Murder Mansion and Persons of Interest in the same purchase.

Something else to consider are the likely purchase totals and how that factors into their transaction costs. Most payment processors charge somewhere around $0.30 + 2.9% per transaction. On a $1 purchase, DriveThruRPG ends up paying $0.33, more than 30%. On $2 it’s $0.36.

Lets say they have a team of five developers and they’re paying them somewhere between $60k and $100k. That amounts to somewhere between $25k–$42k per month in costs for developers alone, not to mention the rest of the staff and management.

The questions that come to mind to me are: - How many developers do they employ? - How many other employees do they employ? - How much do they spend storing and serving files? - How much do they spend on servers? All of that costs money, the employees the most of the lot.

A tweet from the heart. Co-host Dave and I decided at breakfast this morning, surrounded by gamers of all types, that the more time we spend with gamers, the more we appreciate the welcome, the friendliness and the love of game playing folk. Please retweet this to everyone else.

This one is far easier because I haven’t been playing that long and I haven’t played that many. 1. D&D 5e 2. D&D 4e 3. Coriolis 4. Dungeon Crawl Classics 5. Forbidden Lands

I won’t list them in order, because I’d be wrong about it. - Day of Defeat (Half-Life mod) - Counter-Strike - World of Warcraft - Morrowind - Stardew Valley

I can enjoy them either way, *but* I know that *I* enjoy them more when I get to play or run them. I won’t tell other people how to have fun, but I’d likely encourage folks who don’t play to give it a shot.

I’d be happy to. I think you need to follow me before we can DM though.
