They must be told!

Why hasn't anyone told me about http://tragedyseries.tumblr.com?!? It's a hilarious webcomic. Also, magnificently drawn! Also has the occasional free printable paperminis!

Really, blocking is essential for making online networks like Google+ work.

In the series "webcomics deserving your money", I present:

Skin Horse
http://skin-horse.com/

They are Project Skin Horse - a secret, understaffed, under-budgeted government agency providing social welfare services for the tens of thousands of nonhuman sapients in the United States. Their field team consists of an undead bioweapon (and rather enthusiastic girl - too bad she is mostly enthusiastic about violence), a cross-dressing ex-Army psychologist, and their leader, a talking spitz with borderline OCD. When not trying to deal with the usual insanities of working for a government bureaucracy, they travel around the country and try to help with the problems of other nonhuman sapients without making things too much worse.

The comic is hilarious, and has daily archives going back to 2007 - perfect for an archive binge. However, for some reason it does not have as much prominence as many other webcomics, and I'd like to change that at least a little bit.

Their #Patreon is here:
https://www.patreon.com/Shaenon?ty=h

It ranks currently at $619.60 - not enough to support a single webcomic creator, let alone the artist-writer team working on this one.

So if you like it, share this post. If you have the money, donate to them - I want the two of them be able to make a living from this, so that they will continue to make this awesome comic.

Skin Horse is awesome. And Shaenon Garrity is directly responsible for the creation of my own comic Planet of Hats. (I told her my idea and she told me I had to do it, which was the final kick I needed.)

Introducing my new Tabletop RPGs Collection. From now on, I will post all my gaming posts there, only occasionally sharing them with my main Stream. This will not be automatically visible to all of my followers. However, I consider this to be a better approach than posting my gaming posts into a closed Circle, as I used to - since posting them non-publicly will make it more difficult to share those posts.

First impressions of LEGO Worlds:

- Of course there are skeletons at night.

- If you really want to dig through a mountain, play the Warlock.

- I tried to get into a pyramid with the traditional approach - that is, lots and lots of dynamite - but sadly, nothing interesting was inside.

- So far, there doesn't really be much of a point of building anything other than to change the scenery.

Still, it is early access - I'm curious to see what they will come up with.

And I hope and pray to the LEGO Gods that they will offer mod support. With that, this game could become amazing!

In my campaign, the characters have gotten very rich (due to large investments in Wealth), and one of the characters has decided to plunk down $50,000 for a Wisdom magic item that provides +5 IQ.

This is legitimate within the context of the campaign world - it's a setting with very common magic, and methods of enchanting magic items quickly.

However, the character also has Weirdness Magnet - and I think such a cheeky attempt at munchkinism should come with some drawbacks, shouldn't it?

Be creative!

There's a bit about Adders in old GURPS Space that said something to the effect of "IQ adders aren't addictive, but you sure like being smart don't you?". There's no reason not to make a character make a Will roll to ever remove a magical item that beneficial. They would just constantly feel mentally sluggish without the enchantment to the point where even a high IQ would seem frustratingly dim.

Also the world isn't necessarily fair to people just because they're wealthy. The merchant contracting the magic item would never promise that it gives the character +5 IQ just that it would give them a "once in a lifetime wisdom" or words to that effect. Feel free to allow the enchantment to work on skills but not Will or Perception or perhaps even be able to be used to benefit magic.

As far as the weirdness, absolutely have that much power go weird. Maybe the magic used is tainted with necromancy as the spirits of the dead are feeding him their intelligence and wearing the item causes him to have other people's memories sometimes or feel a compulsion to undertake their last wishes. Perhaps the item is like a beacon that draws monsters that drain IQ. Consequences don't have to fit well into the theme of your campaign, the're weird.

What motivated Congress to give Oak Flat, a sacred Apache site, to a mining company that will certainly destroy it?

Okay, let's do this again (after I screwed up the questions last time).

You may have noticed the new Collections feature by Google+ - if not, head over here:

https://plus.google.com/collections/welcome

When you create a new Collection for a specialized interest, you have two options:

1) You can cause everyone who followed you also follow this collection, unless they opt out. This is more convenient for you, but it places the burden of whether or not to follow your specialized subtopic on the other user.

2) You can set the Collection so that nobody will follow it until they specifically opt in. This prevents people who don't share that special interest from getting those posts in their stream, but the risk is that people who do share that interest won't discover those posts.

So, if you have a specialized interest, and you know that most people who follow you likely won't be interested in these posts, what do you think is the more appropriate setting for your Collection?

"So what are transhumanists to do in a world where science and technology are quickly improving and will almost certainly overcome human mortality in the next 30 years?"

...sorry, I don't buy that. Yes, we will make medical breakthroughs that have the potential to extend human lifespans. No, they will not be sufficient to "overcome human mortality" - the human body is a complex thing, and there are far too many possible causes of death.

(Via +Mari Thomas.)
 
Interesting read ...
The rapidly growing field of transhumanism—an international social movement whose highest immediate priority is overcoming human death via science and technology—is facing a colossal challenge. About 85 percent of the world’s population believes in life after death, and much of that population is perfectly okay with dying because it gives them an afterlife with their perceived deity or deities—something transhumanists often refer to as “deathist”...

My intention was not to say one political system is better than the other but that resource consumption will happen anyway no matter how fair or not is the political / economic environment, thus the ridiculousness of bringing "ultra-rich" or whatever in this conversation.
Your analysis is interesting +Addison Chrystie. However there is a deep flaw in your line of though: All the resource depletions you postulate would occur anyway with or without immortals (and we know that these immortals will never happen in the foreseable future anyway). Thus this specific consideration is orthogonal with the fact there are immortals or not. Possibly you could assert that the transition from a civilization of short lifespan with average birthrate (ours) to a civilization of very long lifespan with very low birthrate (the actual trend)  would create and additional number of people compared to a transition to low birthrate without extending lifespan. But that will not change anything regarding available resources: If you're believing the idiocy of the Meadows Report model we're all already doomed. If you're considering the local system entropy, we have unlimited supply of energy for more than a billion year ahead before whatever species has evolved from Homo Sapiens has to relocate to another planet...

Now that I have learned that Collections are a Thing, I have decided to make my own. The obvious choice is for Tabletop RPGs, since I have posted a lot about this topic but usually put these posts in a closed Circle. Which, of course, made resharing rather restricted, so this is a much better approach. In the future I will post all my gaming stuff to this Collection - which is not visible to all of my followers, since not all of my followers are interested in this stuff - and occasionally reshare them to my main Stream.

To kick off, here are some gaming things by me that might interest you:

1. My gaming blog:

http://german-geek.blogspot.de/

Much of the posts cover various aspects of world and campaign building.


2. My first self-published gaming product:

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/103414/Doomed-Slayers

This is (a) a fantasy setting, and (b) an examination of how typical fantasy RPG "adventurers" fit into the social context of a typical pseudo-medieval fantasy world, not necessarily in that order. A number of people have said some very nice things about this setting, and it has three five-star reviews already.

3. The Suppressed Transmissions Community:

https://plus.google.com/u/0/communities/108381378671514337441

Basically, this Google+ Community plumbs the world for weirdness to use in role-playing games and stories - and we do find lots of very strange stuff. Check it out!

4. The Arcana Wiki:

http://arcana.wikidot.com/

Essentially, the Wikipedia - if it had been written by gamers, for gamers, with the goal of finding gaming ideas in any possible topic. Check it out - and contribute!

Unlike most other breads sold in Columbus I have seen so far, the bread here is actually edible. Visitors from Europe should still tone down their expectations a notch, however. For example, the bread sold as "French baguette" is much denser inside than the baguette sold in Europe, making it less airy and harder to chew than the original. However, it does have a crust that doesn't shrivel up from fright merely by looking at it. If you are from Europe and crave bread, you might want to take a look at Panera Bread. It won't be as good as back home, but the odds that you will find something better in the United States seem to be limited. Otherwise, you will either learn to live without - or make your own bread.
