Well, life got busy and I lost momentum on this project. If anyone wants to play with it and send me some pull requests, I'll happily go that route, but I don't think I'll be able to really push more features on my own.

(cc +Aleksandra Sontowska, because you're the only person who gave me any feedback on it.)

OK, this is fast becoming (over the past minutes) my favorite tool for making R-maps in RPGs.

Ok, played around a bit more and updated things. What do you guys think?

Meeting those wolves has stuck with me. It's powerful to be faced, in a way you can't ignore, with the reality that we are not the only people on this planet. I do feel sometimes like we, as humans, are the Yahoos running amok amongst the various Houyhnhnms of the world, like the tower of Babel was not about the fragmentation of human languages from each other, but about the separation of humans from the languages of all the other people of this Earth.

I think that, for me, feminism, anti-colonialism, anti-racism, and environmentalism are all fundamentally intertwined. They all are facets of the understanding and insistence that cishet white male humans are not the only people.

And that is so beautiful. It's scary—scary enough to make one lash out in sorrowful and stupid rage at everything around you—to believe that you are alone. All of the -isms above are acts of love, even if that love may take a firm form.

I want to be able to speak with elephants. I feel like I personally, could learn so much from them. I want to know about their culture and their understanding of the world/cosmos.

Hey, game design folks! Welcome +Judy L. Tyrer to G+. She mostly does digital games (correct me if I'm wrong?), and recently Kickstarted the Jane Austen MMO you may have seen me excited about.

Anyway, she's looking for some fruitful connections on G+, so!

Well, I've been playing a little CK2, and this happened. First time I've seen a woman as the Catholic Pope. Clearly the game wasn't prepared for this, as her title's some fallback title, King-Bishop.

(I am not super keen on what Apple as a company is like, I think that they're making lots of bad UX/UI decisions, and yet Windows is mind-blowingly unsably bad in the UI/UX department to me, so.)

Looking for an ebook-and-associated-website designer

A good friend of mine is looking for someone who can help her do the design-and-layout involved in releasing her dissertation (which is on a relatively accessible topic, to do with protest, civil disobedience, and the internet) as an ebook-and-associated-website.

Is that person you? Might it be someone you know? Plus people in if you think they'd be interested, I'll get folks in touch.

It might be me! Ebook yes, and if it's supposed to be a relatively static site, that's in my bailiwick for sure. Email me? n.d.paoletta at gmail

"Writer Henry Beston said it more eloquently than I ever could in his famous quote:
 
We need another and a wiser and perhaps a more mystical concept of animals. Remote from universal nature and living by complicated artifice, man in civilization surveys the creature through the glass of his knowledge and sees thereby a feather magnified and the whole image in distortion. We patronize them for their incompleteness, for their tragic fate for having taken form so far below ourselves. And therein do we err. For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours, they move finished and complete, gifted with the extension of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear. They are not brethren, they are not underlings: they are other nations, caught with ourselves in the net of life and time, fellow prisoners of the splendour and travail of the earth."

Hey, folks who back a lot of Kickstarters! Did you know you can go to your backer history and check off whether you've gotten the stuff you backed, for each project?

I bet if more people do this, it'll help give Kickstarter some Very Useful data.

Very useful! Unsurprisingly the video game ones are the farthest behind.

Oh, and on the drive down to meet wolves: we cast pop singers as various kinds of World of Darkness monsters. Because +Allie Hawley McCarthy is the best.

And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by…
Introduction
I must down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.
Sea Fever, John Masefield

This is definitely my favorite restaurant in Boulder, and one of my favorite places in the world. The food is great, of course—I try to change up what I have, but whatever you choose will be good—but what really wins me over is the atmosphere. The owners are lovely folks who do a great job of making the place welcoming. As soon as I come in, I feel tension and worries melt away. Don't be put off by the proximity to the DMV; just go inside and let it feel as cozy and nice as it does!
