Handy generator for science-fiction games and stories.
 
While working on the #DayTrippers GameMasters Guide, I put together an online version of the mission generation system to test the generators in combination.  This script (see link below) generates a random Mission, and if required by that Mission, it also generates a random Star, a Planet, a Location and a Lifeform. Note that mission destinations in DayTrippers may include "Dream Worlds" and "Alternate Earths" as well as planets in Cartesian Space.  The logic and odds used by the program are exactly those outlined in the Generator tables of DTGMG; many options are dependent on the results of previous determinations in the chain. For instance: gravity depends on planet size, local conditions depend on climate and presence of water, lifeform size depends on atmospheric pressure and gravity, etc.
MISSION SUBJECTIVE SLIP: Exploration in a Dream World. Form of Reality: Limitless plane. What Has Diverged: Laws of Physics or Behavior of things. Scope of Divergence: There's a weird but discoverable connection. DETAILS. MAGUFFIN: Shipment/Message; MAGUFFIN: Rumor/Legend/Theory ...

+Mathieu Mazzoni​ et moi-même cherchons deux ou trois joueurs pour tester Freebooters on the Frontier un hack de Dungeon World qui cherche à renouer avec les origines de Donjons & Dragons : l'exploration et la survie en territoire dangereux. 
Point de héros trompe-la-mort qui luttent pour une cause, mais des gens plus ou moins normaux venus risquer leur vie à la frontière de la civilisation, dans le seul but de faire fortune.

Heretic thought of the day, from a conversation with +Paolo Greco and +Charlie Vick

If you wanted to use Dungeon World's moves with an OSR roll-under engine: 

10+ = success under half the stat
7-9 = success 
6- = failure 

Thoughts? Would you need a list of bad conseqences (ie GM hard moves) for failures, or would 'nothing happens' be satisfactory?

Do you need an ecosystem of weird creatures? Just click.
 
Tables that generate a place , unique inhabitants of that place, a couple of unique encounters  there and a encounter table which has the inhabitants interacting with each other, so the whole thing is interconnected.
You could totally click on this (because it has been automated) and then assign each terrain 2d10 worth of hexes and have a fairly plausible world area.

well done

So I've read +Jason Lutes​' Freebooters on the Frontier last night and I really like it. (Which is just as well, because it was the main reason I backed Perilous Journeys / The Perilous Wilds :)

It's a simpler, more lethal Dungeon World that isn't add barebones as World of Dungeons. Highlights: a freeform and deadly magic system, random character generation, the "loot & stash" experience principle, and collaborative map building.
The only thing I'm not sure about after a first read is the number of moves: overland travel seems to require quite a few rolls. I'll have to give it a whirl to decide.

I watched the last few episodes of Steven Universe last night and:
¤ It's definitely up there with Adventure Time
¤ Garnet broke my heart in the best possible way
¤ Are MRAs boycotting this too? 

If you've seen it already or don't mind spoilers, here's that amazing final fight/song: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6JARVfb-FBg
(Damn, I'm watching it again...)

Trop récent ? 
Quoi que j'ai pas l'impression que Netflix et Cartoon Network soient super copains - Adventure Time n'a que deux saisons sur cinq sur Netflix. Essaie ici : http://kisscartoon.me/Cartoon/Steven-Universe

Looks like the writers of Steven Universe are gamers.

I had heard there was a connection with Adventure Time but I didn't know the specifics.

Pour les gens qui n'ont pas encore décidé s'ils/elles veulent contribuer au financement de Fall of Magic, vous pouvez regarder la vidéo avec des sous-titres français. 

En l'état, le PDF sera traduit, et il ne manque plus que quelques soutiens francophones pour débloquer le parchemin en français !
