I'm giving Mastodon a try, so I set up http://dice.camp, a tabletop gaming oriented Mastodon instance.

Mastodon is basically federated Twitter. Federation means you can set up an account on one server and talk to people from other servers, like email. It also means each server can have a reasonable administration policy, instead of Twitter's inconsistent whatever mess.

It's not like a forum, you don't have to only talk gaming. But it is possible to view the feeds of everyone on the same server, which is why I decided to set one up. In addition to just following the folks you want, the dice.camp feed will be more or less whatever gamers are talking about. Plus the url is cool.

So now we have a petty bet on this stuff. Can we sell 200 copies in 5 hours?

Probably not but that hasn't stopped us before. https://www.burningwheel.com/store/index.php/dungeon-world-print-pdf.html

Okay, so, design nerd and football fan and videogame fan: I love this!

That's some solid design, with an aesthetic and look that bridges traditional sports and esports really well. Compared to a lot of existing esports trade dress that draws on its own aesthetic, this is clearly working from a traditional sports perspective, but with some nods to esports.

Basically: it's a lot more wearable by more people.

Stick that logo on a hat or shirt or whatever and it fits like any other sport. Which is probably a win here: it normalizes esports as just sports.

If Blizzard can land the line-game presentation to go with it, I think they're on to something here. An esport that learns from traditional as well as electronic sports.

And bonus points if the Seattle team goes with blue/green/grey to stay on-brand with the Seahawks, Sounders, Mariners, Thunderbirds, and Seawolves.

#RPGaDay Speed Run Day 14: Which RPG do you prefer for open-ended campaign play?

Well, typically what I prefer is "something different from the last open-ended campaign game I played." I like variety.

But if I have to choose one I'll say Burning Wheel, because there's so many great interlocking moving parts that I feel like two open-ended campaigns could be considerably different. Plus BW has provided two of my canonical Big Five games that shape who I am as a gamer: the Post-Arthurian England game and Burning Boston.

#RPGaDay Speed Run Day 13: Describe a game experience that changed how you play.

Well I mentioned some of those a few posts back (https://plus.google.com/+SageLaTorra/posts/BfMrheY5LyT). But another:

My first BW character was a grave digger who had a belief about respecting the dead. First session, about halfway through the hedge wizard PC (played by +Isaac Milner) decided he needed a body for some morally grey reason. I'm an agreeable person, so I said sure. The GM (+Ben P.) says "so, uh, what are your beliefs?"

It just clicked in a way that it hadn't before that my character could be distinct from my own interests. I'd played plenty of characters who had distinct personalities or looks or whatever, but their motivations were all more or less my own.

That's a fun thing to have available for characters. Now somewhat often I try to make characters who break from type for me, and give myself ways to hold myself to that. Beliefs are a great way to do that, but there's plenty of others.

#RPGaDay Speed Run Day 12: What RPG has the most inspiring interior art?

I'm going to have to go with Moldvay and/or DCC here. For me, there's something about black & white slightly gonzo art that inspires me more than more detailed colorful art. I think maybe adventure games (probably my fave genre) work better for me when I don't try to make them entirely real in my head. Something a little cartoony works better for my imagination.

#RPGaDay Speed Run Day 11: Which dead game would you like to see reborn?

Well I would say WEG Star Wars but that's happening.

I don't know, with PDFs and used book stores it seems like games don't truly die. Bunnies & Burrows doesn't need to be reborn for me to play it. I guess maybe for things that are hard to find in print and which are beautiful enough to be particularly enjoyed in print would count, but I can't think of any of those that haven't already been reborn.
