Turn 513

Collected a choice token and made a small alteration to an action.

I went slightly meta and altered

"Edit any action on the list to cause a minor alteration in how the game works. 

Alternatively, you may alter the occurrence frequency of one option on the list by modifying the range of any option by increasing or decreasing the number in column J by up to +/- 5 from its current value. You may not go to zero or negative; there must always be at least one "card" in the "deck" after you take this action."

A couple of small things. Added an empty ocean tile at 5, -8 - because the vasty deep is as important as all these little archipelagos, and extended the mountains about 2, -8 into a more complete range to reduce the tiled nature etc.

And now +Kelley Vanda is actually up.

Turn 478

First to use the new-and-improved stuff!

I added a (mostly icy) tile at 2,8, and incorporated it into the newly named Chill Hold.

With that: +Eugene Wheeler III is up.

Turn 469

I've increased the chances of creating or changing the size of political boundaries on the map in the hopes of increasing the narrative aspect of the game, as opposed to the mere map building part. Consider this a flag on my part :)

I also move the Crazy Old Hermit from the Gate of the Gods to the Feast of Butterflies:

That was until one day this morning ritual ended with him turning on his heel three times and straight up walking all the many leagues to the Feast of Butterflies. He strode past the caretakers there into the midst of the butterflies and was quickly blanketed. Now he sits, apparently sustained by the carpet of butterflies, motionless. Some folk who left him offerings in his hermitage now have joined the pilgrimage to the Feast to pay respects there. News of his journey has begun to make its way across the lands around the Feast; some wise people say it is all very ominous - of what, they cannot say.

One of those "oh yes, of course, how right!" moments
A Lego-Friendly Prosthetic Arm Lets Kids Build Their Own Attachments

A new mindset from what current prosthetics are. Missing a limb shouldn't be a disability for a kid when you have the opportunity to explore and augment their potential by creating, playing and learning.

The needs of a kid in disability are not always related to physical activity but often alternatively the social and psychological aspect; sometimes a functional element is everything they need, but some other times it might be a spaceship, or a doll house, or a telescope, or a video game controller, or a swim fin...

What if kids could use their imagination to create their own prosthetics, their own tools according to their own needs? Learning. Creating. Being kids.

Turn 444

I'm setting out to recruit another player after adding a picture to the Tainted Glacier (which I realize as I'm searching for images is in fact an iceberg, but hey...)

I guess that means +Eugene Wheeler III is up again?

Turn 434

Collected a choice token, and added a tile at (-5,4), extending the northern coast that that gulf there.

On to you, +Alexander Cherry 

OMGJ, please use View > Snap To... > [uncheck all] because it makes editing the map actually doable.

Turn 416

I like it when the RNG talks about the same area in two different actions. Even better when it's across turns.

This time, I got "create or expand random encounters at (-9,-4)" and "add a tile at (-9, -5)" Since that was a cul-de-sac, how could I refuse?

Plus, I get to hint at the reasons for the destruction of the Brown Way in Turn 409. How great is that?

+Alexander Cherry, tag!

While I'm complaining/critiquing the ruleset, two things I just noticed while looking for a place to "reduce the tiled nature of the map"

First, there are a ton of blank spaces and cul-de-sacs in the map. Should it be a priority for column E to select empty spaces based on how many of their neighbors are occupied?

Second, the "insert a photo" and "draw a tile and scan it" actions seem at odds with reducing the tiling effect - what's the motivation there?
