What about this game here?  - 
 
Few weeks ago I started a new project: to develop my own RPGs. The first step is to come up with two or three lighter games to get some experience on developing concepts, designing rules, and creating settings.

Now I've reached the point where I've got the first character sheets and one airship sheet printed out, first version of the world map drawn, and the rules ready to go. In about 15 minutes we'll start my first ever test session with character creation and a light adventure.

+Mikko Karvonen Sounds like a cool session. Yes providing too much freedom on selecting things can lead to confusion. Kind of like going to "Subway" for the first time ☺

Dramatic decision - we need more of these! Big changes don't happen without ambition.
 
"In a majority vote, the lower house of Dutch parliament supported a motion to no longer allow new sales of petrol or diesel cars from 2025."

This is actually a lot less radical than the headline would make you believe; they still allow old fossil fuel vehicles even then. This means the plan is very much feasible.

Heavy traffic is sometimes prohibited driving in city centers. No such intents with this initiative.

So much for even live video being much evidence for anything being true anymore...
Researchers from Stanford, Erlangen-Nuremberg and Max Planck have developed software that allows for the real-time face capture and reenactment of RGB videos like YouTube

Ouch.
 
This fake brain actually has the same consistency as the real deal. So now you know how concussions happen!

Me too! First time seven years ago.

The number of tourists has increased considerably between then and now. But then again, so has the number of great restaurants and cafes, too.

I recently visited Isle of Skye. Here is a collection of animal photos I captured during the trip.

Nothing to worry about. Business as usual. Keep going. Remember the debt and refugees.

I just noticed that High Magic & Low Cunning and the related Map Folio has quietly appeared to my FLGS's inventory. Anyone picked it up yet? Would love to hear some impressions.

Personally I wasn't thrilled by the raft ambush shown in the previews. It just felt very drawn out. However, a good set of battle maps alone would be a great thing to have. Is there an index of the maps available yet?

I feel the maps were a waste of money. They are little better than printer paper. They could easily get ripped up, or folded, and if something gets spilled on them they are fucked. I would have gladly paid $20 more dollars just to have them printed on cardboard stock. Now I need to go to Kinko's to see about getting them laminated.
