How has this not been on my radar? Amazon's making a series off The Man in the High Castle, alternate history where the Allies lose WWII.

I saw the first episode when it was up in their "vote on these shows to make" deal. IIRC, this was top vote getter...I enjoyed the episode, too! I am definitely looking forward to it!

I moved from one computer to another and noticed m choices were randomized differently. Be advised!

Oh, #threeforged. We've got some work to do. I've got a really interesting setting to run with, but I was really hoping for some more complete mechanics. I'm a little let down.

But it's good in a way- very different from the other two games, and I've got a solid direction with an angle I wouldn't take.

Now I want to go read some (secret stuff) for inspiration.

I played that so much on an Atari 800.  I only wish they had randomized the sell order if everyone moved down at the start of a sell round at the same time, rather than giving priority to the first player always.

I'm fairly certain I didn't keep a single intact sentence from stage one. #threeforged

I kept all of the core ideas from stage 1, and none of the writing.

Turns Submitted  - 
 
Turn 516

My options: Decrease the tiled nature of the map; add a description for a named feature; add a polity.

My choices:

* I changed the ocean color at (2,-3). For me, the quilt-like color patches are the biggest indicator that the map is tiles. I'd like to cheat and do more.

* I added a new polity around (7,5). I cheated and colored outside the lines a bit instead of strictly keeping to three squares. I added the polity to the Worldbook and a blank entry to the Map Location Descriptions and will to add this second directive to the action. 

I summon +Kevin McIntyre !

I don't. I just think about the game quite often. You'll note that I'm less likely to keep up with it over weekends when I spend less time at a PC.

Point of order: I would like to limit the map edges to its current size. Thoughts?

I'm also mildly concerned with the capacity of Google Drawings.

My stage 3 #threeforged  game has a nice chunk of flavor text up front. I'm getting into the groove by polishing it up and shaving off a few bits.

I'm planning to just work on the fiction tonight, not touching the mechanics (though they need it). Unless my muse thinks otherwise.

I wrote 5 pages of setting in a 10 page document, which is huge for me, since I've never written setting in a design before.

FAIL BETTER.


(A wink and a nod to +Gil Hova .)
 
Failure is the chance to do better next time.

The fortune cookie knows I'm doing the #Threeforged RPG design contest.

I have to say I'm disappointed that this was not a fortune but was rather a vague statement about the rules of reality.

To read!

Hat tip to several in my feed.
 
(I would be very happy if you reshared this)

While it was great to see the puppies rejected at the Hugos, I am very sad for the authors who were shoved aside by their slate. Here are links to the top non-puppy nominees for Best Short Story. If you enjoy them, write a fan letter: those happy echoes from the void are the second best thing an author can receive.

Jackalope Wives, by Ursula Vernon: http://www.apex-magazine.com/jackalope-wives/

The Breath of War, by Aliette de Bodard: http://www.beneath-ceaseless-skies.com/stories/the-breath-of-war/

The Truth About Owls, by Amal El-Mohtar: http://www.strangehorizons.com/2015/20150126/1owls-f.shtml

When it Ends, He Catches Her, by Eugie Foster: http://dailysciencefiction.com/fantasy/fairy-tales/eugie-foster/when-it-ends-he-catches-her

A Kiss With Teeth, by Max Gladstone: http://www.tor.com/2014/10/29/a-kiss-with-teeth-max-gladstone/

Also, here are two stories that were withdrawn from Hugo consideration by their authors after appearing on the puppy slate:

Goodnight Stars, by Annie Bellet: http://www.johnjosephadams.com/apocalypse-triptych/free-reads/goodnight-stars-annie-bellet/

Tuesdays with Molakesh the Destroyer, by Megan Grey: http://www.firesidefiction.com/issue19/chapter/tuesdays-with-molakesh-the-destroyer/

All the Hugo data can be found here, if you'd like to check out the other categories the puppies vandalized: http://www.thehugoawards.org/content/pdf/2015HugoStatistics.pdf

As misguided as the puppies are (ok, the rabid puppies are less misguided and more just being awful) I do love the name. It makes me see them as incompetent, ineffective, imature, animals who know they shouldn't piss on the rug, but are too stupid not to.
