Annoying Windows 10 thing - anyone else seeing this? So whenever I plug something new in, the Action Center (Win+A) gets a new item that says "Tap to choose what this does..." etc. Okay, that's fine. So I click it, and... nothing. Gone. Not even a choice menu.

How the fuck do I get that to actually work? Like, I WANT to click and choose a thing, but it doesn't even let me.

I think I've noticed that as well - but I hate the choose what you want to do with the drive. I just want to plug the drive and that's it - i'll get to it myself using explorer.

Do any of the current major VTT apps have tablet clients? I want to run an online tabletop game, using my PC as my primary GM interface, but then also using my tablet to add, update, and modify maps and drawings and battlefields. Can any of the current popular ones let me do this?

Lmk I too want to do this. I believe syncRPG suggests this may be a feature. Not sure but check it.

#gattaibushido  Oh god I just now hit that moment when everything just fell in place and is making everything else fall in place alongside, and it's glorious. Dare I say it, I've fixed a major flaw that made the previous incarnation guilty of some of the same "component disparity" that plagued Motobushido - a complaint I also have about systems like Burning Wheel, for example. I know this sounds vague, but man oh man, over here it's like watching the Legos of my game's components finally decide how to best fit together.

And as fate would have it? I kinda have +Paul Beakley to thank for inspiring me to readdress certain mechanical constants of the original system that I had until now been taking for granted as being staple sacred cows of the core engine's drive. Taking a second critical look at my own creation led to new epiphanies that wouldn't have happened before. Hot damn.

Congrats! Have very happy memories of Motobushido. Can't wait to see what monster you have created.

Hey everyone, could you please take a sec and tag all your GenCon posts so I can auto-mute them? I'm happy for you all, but I'd just rather not have to spend the next five days looking at hundreds of posts about all the fun I'm not having. Thanks.

A while back I saw someone's homebrew campaign website blog thingy that had a slew of unique new twists on the D&D 5E races. I remember some cool variants of dragonborn, elves, etc. They were all written up for the writer's own home game world, and I have a feeling that person is also someone I even follow on here. but Ic annot fod the life of me find it. Argh! Anyone have an idea the site I'm talking about?

No snark, all love. D:OS was one of the most enjoyable computer games I've ever played. Not only are they releasing an Enhanced Edition of it later this year (free to all current owners!), they just launched a kickstarter for extra funds for their coming sequel for December 2016. Larian rocks the house.
Larian Studios LLC is raising funds for Divinity: Original Sin 2 on Kickstarter! An epic RPG with turn-based combat, cooperative/competitive multiplayer; sequel to Divinity: Original Sin, GameSpot's PC Game of 2014.

Yeah, I checked out the first one, was impressed. There's a lot of folks who compare this to Pillars of Infinity (and would compare it to Numenera if it were OUT YET), and while both are excellent I really loved the 2-character play and interaction of Divinity. The same with 4? Fuck yeah, I'm in.

Anyone here use Fantasy Grounds? I'm considering something like it for a future online game, likely using some of the community Shadowrun packs, and maybe the Savage Worlds packs. What are the actual costs involved, what I'm otherwise having a strangely difficult time getting breakdowns of?

That ultimate license doesn't look half bad... except it only comes with one single game system I give a shit about.

Wish they'd let you pick and choose instead.

Two questions about Savage RIFTS official:
1) Does it have Dogboys?
2) IF SO, when can I buy it?

NEED me some dogboys. It's not RIFTS if there aren't dogboys. No dogboys, no RIFTS!

Think of it this way, Sean: To corrupt the Mark Twain quote -
"If you crossed man with dog, you'd improve the man, and degrade the dog..."

Hello Everyone! I can finally tell you all the good news. That thing I've been working on since April 2014? Savage Worlds: Motobushido was announced at GenCon during the Pinnacle seminar. First mention of it I'm finding online is the link below (thank you Google translate).

Yes, that's right: Motobushido is going to be a new official Savage Worlds setting. It's a dream come true for me.

I am always amused when people who post pictures of their kids get pissed off when others post about their sex lives, as if those details are disgusting or such. But what are baby pictures if not plain visual evidence of the fact that people were fucking?

I post kid pics here and there, but I'm totally cool with people talking about their sex lives.  Power to 'em.
