We've been struggling for volunteers in recent months and we're likely to need to reduce our operations in 2019, so we're doing a survey to ask folk what they see of our content and what we should look at mothballing/reducing - boosts and all responses appreciated (whether or not you currently look at any of our stuff):

Whilst I'm a straight/cis/white guy, this nonetheless speaks to a lot of the reasons 40K never clicked with me as a setting:

Making the Imperium "the good guys" is done too often & wholly rips the soul out of 40K as a setting IMO. The Imperium are absolutely fascists - they should be a rotting, horror-show broken hulk of a culture that people only cling to for fear of something worse (which is where the T'au can get really interesting).

re:lb

I think about this a lot.

And about the web of 2000.

And about when the web was really at it's most useful for me, and what's changed.

When I was looking for work a while ago, I wrote up guidelines for a better website.

It's near the top of my list to finish that, and publish it somewhere.

I'm almost caught up.

DM: Can't help but notice how much your new character-- Gandalf the WHITE, is it?-- resembles your LAST character, GARY. You didn't even change the name!

GARY: Yeah, well how he died was BULLSHIT.

Did you know that RPG in a Box is an engine created as a "game" within Godot Engine? Extremely grateful for Juan and all of the developers who contribute to Godot - it's such an amazing engine! #screenshotsaturday #gamedev #indiedev #godotengine #voxel

I no longer remember what set me off over a year ago when I created a small set of absurd GoT images and posted them to annoy friends on Fb.

This one was captioned "I love to watch my favorite TV! So many games! I hope Mr. Thrones gets the rose at the end and all the prizes.

2/2

"Wow, well, you looked like you really needed it and I try to take my duty as a barista seriously" they said with a bemused smile.

"What do I owe you for this elixir?"

"Ah, um... you look like you've come a long way, don't worry about it."

It took much insisting but eventually I was about to repay them - they graciously accepted my meager offering of six gold rings. Once the snow had eased, I departed swiftly.

I made sure to include the importance of Earths 'baristas' in my next report.

I LOVE this one. It landed in just the perfect place, and the sunlight through the trees was fantastic.

Anyone got ideas for more places we can advertise for ? We're getting really stretched, to the extent that we may have to significantly cut back or mothball bits of what we do (mostly production of newsletters and publication of articles) in 2019 unless we can find one or two extra people to take on bits.
