I've been hosting the birdsite feed "historians of Iran" lately to add some Caucasus content to it, and to that end I've been doing some tweet threads on the basics and fun parts of Georgian history.

Would people be interested in me copying those over and doing masto threads of them?

Heyyyy, Fedi! :blobaww:

How are you? What are your hopes and dreams?

Do you need help making a project of yours more visible? What is it about?

Do you... Have a link for me? :ameowbongo:

Went for a walk today, took a few pictures of things. This is my favourite. Took a lot of attempts, far from perfect, but for something not much larger than a mouse moving around fast above head height in the dark, I think I did OK.

@eloisa I just need an audience. I write role-playing games. You can find my personal work at patreon.com/wanderingbeekeeper and my FASA work at fasagames.com/1879-home. The first has a mechanic driven by player agency and a game world structured on the idea of consequences, the second is a steampunk world that criticizes imperialist colonialism and centers class struggle.

I still think the biggest problems in online communities post-2010 are a) the idea that the internet is just there to reflect/build a purely personal, otherwise unreferenced set of connections and more importantly b) the death of community builders/ moderators /mediators as an effective separate cadre of users.

The world, and especially the online part thereof, needs more flowers. Here are some (OK, one's an open set of seed pods, but it's easily pretty enough to be in the set).

You know what I've never seen in a roguelike? Rope. What are the three things every dungeoneer takes in an RPG? Torch, rope, 10' pole. OBVIOUSLY.

I've found one low-quality sprite in a dozen "roguelike" sprite packs. Had to draw my own, and my art skills are… better than the one I found, but not by much.

Be very very careful how you talk about the impending humanitarian crises caused by climate change

Never allow your arguments to even tacitly support the belief that refugees are bad for the countries that take them in; focus on how bad it is for the refugees themselves to be uprooted

Just had quite a nice test of my game - managed to get bits that felt like a reasonable challenge, mild frustrations that were ultimately resolved, 2-3 characters who I was remembering traits of and learning the names of naturally by the end of the playthrough.

Like, if there's one thing I know I'll never hit with this but would like to, it's getting something where the random generation systems generate something that really feels like a story. even these hints of that are really rewarding.

When it rains, the green lichen valleys of the tree trunks come alive with a forest of tiny mushrooms

finance your idea exclusively by training birds to bring you shiny, valuable objects. crowfunding.

To everyone who still makes text-based tutorials, thank you!

I'd much rather follow a text tutorial than wait 15+ minutes for a video tutorial to load.

Your work is very much underappreciated. Thanks again! 💜

What if capybaras came in varieties like guinea pigs
