OK, so after watching Who Framed Roger Rabbit again I'm committing myself to doing a ToonPoint offering for Who'sYerCon kids' corner.  

...Now I just have to reskin the skills and redo the questions and refrain from using the phrase "fuck you" in my explanation. I am thinking "No Way" sounds about right for the 8-15 year old group.

Current thoughts: 
KILL becomes KAPOW ("shaken up" and "stars and birdies")
COOL stays the same, I think?
CON becomes FIB ("misled" and "taken in")
TAKE stays the same, I think?
DIG becomes SPY (still working on these)
TERROR becomes AMUSE ("giggle fits" and "on the floor")

You should also have a Wackiness stat, representing the ability to cause changes in reality (painting a black hole and falling through it, making pianos fall from the sky etc.)

Okay, as mentioned earlier I am willing to run a Hollowpoint game via Hangouts or some other appropriate medium.
I will need 2-4 players (I come with a +1 normally) and an agreeable block of 2-3 hours.
I am EST (GMT -4, on daylight savings time currently; that will change to GMT -5 sometime in October when the clocks do their magic thing). I am free every other Friday and most Saturdays after 8, most Saturdays and Sundays between 1 and 4, and Thursday afternoons.

Genre is open season, but I need consensus in advance. I can run the Disneyland Noir, Steampunk Western, Berlin 1988 skins without prep. I can run anything with at least a day's notice and player grace.

Who's interested and what times work?

I have room for a few more players -- I have 3 seats of a max of 5 taken.  Any interest? 
Nykki B originally shared:
 
Come join me as we do a quick and bloody round of Hollowpoint!

This game will focus on mechanics and how to make the story awesome even when the dice hate you.   We'll run through some Conflicts, defeat the Commies, and make the world safe for democracy once more.  

Or maybe you'll all die trying.  

Table max is 5 players -- peanut gallery is unlimited as long as you don't interrupt the story.

This is our tadpole.  My daughter rescued it from a puddle in southern Indiana.  It's actually about 2cm long at the moment, and seems to be enlarging rapidly (it's twice the size it was last week).  Anybody got a guess as to what kind of frog it's going to be?

The answer turned out to be a Cope's Grey Tree Frog.

Circle Maintenance: February 2012 Edition
Hello all! I am updating my Circle Maintenance post because it has been months and months since I did so, and I have recently started getting people discovering the last Maintenance post, which implies that anyone who added me must have done so due to a blind circle-sharing add.

This implication is hereby retracted. I am going to imply now that you have added me for some reason of your own, which is therefore a Good Reason, and that you are reading this post because you're interested in what I have to say.

I post almost exclusively (except for obnoxious maintenance posts like this) to my Circles and keep my outbound stream heavily filtered. This is actually not because I'm antisocial. I would like to meet you. But I want to meet you in single exchange, rather than casting my words out into the faceless sea of the Internet. It's just the way I work.

If we already are mutually encircled I have added two others since the last post: a "Generic Life Blogging" circle, which implies that you want to hear some relatively mundane status updates (things too short for a blog post and too long for Twitter, that I think people may care to know or find entertaining), and a "Parenting" circle, in which I intend to file updates on Cups and the Cap'n as well as interesting parent type things I happen to find.

If we are newly acquainted or you aren't sure There is a list of Circles, as well as a fair list of criteria for how I personally Plus, on my profile. Please let me know what sorts of topics interest you, and I will put you in the appropriate Circles. I tend to post most heavily to the Writing circle, and secondarily to Gaming.

Someone must have shared a circle, or a list, or something: I have a sudden flood of new people adding me.

Hello, new people! I do not make very many public posts so I may be sort of extremely boring to you unless you have engaged with me. Below please find circles of things that I occasionally post to. Please let me know what interests, so I can sort you into the right Circles.

Also please note that if you are mainly posting political rantings I am trying to keep this a safe place for my creative mind, so I may not circle you back in that case.


Gamers/Girl Gamers (RPG, some video games, some board games)
- and various for specific games if you have an interest (Pathfinder, D&D, Hollowpoint are my main right now)
Doctor Who
Medical Stuff
Food Stuff
- subset homebrewing
Computery Stuff
Writing Stuff
- subset NaNoWriMo
Generically Interested in Everything.

In case you weren't on the other thread : I'm willing to run a Hollowpoint demo game via Hangouts or other Internet option.  If anyone's interested here's a doodle for scheduling!

So I'm willing to run another Hollowpoint Hangout (and if someone can teach me to record it, I would do that).  My schedule is open during the day on Thursday 10/10 if there is interest from the GMT portion of this group, or other folks who have strange hours.

I could also do an evening Hangout on a Thursday or Friday night but timing for that is contingent on the small elephants going to bed on time. 

Any interest?

Okay... I had the sudden idea to skin Hollowpoint as a JRPG.
I think I'd want Kill and Cast as separate skills, and take out Dig (you can argue that Take can be used for info gathering). Thoughts?

I am thinking all magic in general, with statuses "dazzled" and something like "enchanted" (but I'm not sure about the exact phrase)

Circle Maintenance

Hello to all of the very very many new people who have becircled me recently! I am only one person and I cannot keep up with checking all profiles, so I am resorting to this sort of stream spam. If you haven't noticed, my stream is pretty quiet - except for obnoxious public service announcements, I stick to Limited circles. I like to keep my outbound data streams sorted and controlled.

There's a big list of circles on my profile - if you're taking the time to read this, pretty please take the time to peek at it and let me know what sort of data streams you are interested in seeing.
If you don't respond (persons who have answered this plea in the past excluded), I will be forced to assume that you just blanket added a shared circle and don't actually have any real interest in connecting with me, so I likely won't circle you back unless I happen across something interesting coming from your direction.

Story
Tagline
Family doctor, mother, writer, gamer, geek. A little bit of everything these days.
Introduction
I'm interested in expanding my circles.  I listen more than I talk.  
If you want to talk about gaming - primarily roleplaying, but a little bit of everything else too - I'm interested.
If you want to talk about geeky stuff in general - I'm interested.
If you want to talk about techy computery stuff - I'm interested.  
If you want to talk about medicine and doctors and hospitals and all the fiddly bits that make up people - I'm interested.
If you believe people are people are people and they are all entitled to basic dignity and respect - I'm interested.

If you want to rant and rave about politics or religion and what you say excludes, degrades, threatens, or erases someone else - I'm not interested.  For all you know, that could be me or someone I love.

I don't come here to feel abused or afraid, on my behalf or anyone else's.

I filter my outbound content heavily and try to keep my inbound sorted.  If you are interested in hearing about particular topics, I need to know or I will appear awfully silent to you.
