As intimidating as they might sound, vampire bats aren’t usually in the business of bothering humans for their blood. In fact, the hairy-legged vampire bat species was thought to feed almost exclusively on birds.

Hey folks,

I run a site called highlevelgames.ca that includes a burgeoning podcasting network and new blogged content five days a week.

It is a"for gamers, by gamers" project that many of us are trying to do out of our own pockets and just get fans of the game involved. The upside of this is that we have the freedom to do whatever we want, have our own opinions on products, and expand in whatever way best works for us right now.

The downside is that there is no money. I dream of being able to pay my contributors, but I don't know how to get from "Just a bunch of folks pooling their stuff because it's fun" to "Awesome creative people feeling valued professionally."

I mean, I know that it is a fansite and as such I am not looking to make a lot, or really any, money, but very soon we are going to begin looking at expanding our base of writers and I am struggling with how to respectfully make that ask. People can't eat "exposure."

I know we have a good amount of traffic, but I have resisted advertising as well. I have been thinking of Patreon for the future but I'm not sure we are ready for that yet.

So my two asks:

1. Any advice you may have on how to gather funds to pay my writers.

2. How do i respectfully ask others to contribute if I can't currently pay?
High Level Games is a table-top role-playing game podcast that dabbles in game design, tips for running your games, and everything that would be needed to take your games to the next level!

+Quinn Moerike I listen to HLG podcast. I can't say I'm/we are the experts in generating revenue, but Patreon could work. Even if it's a modest amount, it's something. At this point, you have nothing to lose. ~S

Voices endlessly transmitting numbers on shortwave... why?
If you tune around on a shortwave radio, you might stumble across a voice reciting an endless stream of numbers. Just numbers, all day, everyday. These so-called “numbers stations,” say nothing about where they are transmitting from or who they are trying to reach, but they can be heard in Spanish, English, German, Russian, Chinese,

I think Tank Riot did a show on conspiracies and touched on number stations. Weird stuff.

Schools are starting back up all over the country. Adopt a classroom is a great way to support your local teachers and all that they do.

Let down by the X-Files reboot? Maybe you never really dug the whole alien conspiracy thing with the bees and the black sludge in the first place. Maybe you didn’t need another convoluted, inscrutable, bonkers plotline. Maybe you wanted the truth. It’s out there. The CIA might know where it is.

There are so many osr references. No more than that the series opens with four kids playing Ad&d in 1983.
A must watch.
Turns out, Steven Spielberg + Stephen King = the best Netflix original series in a long time.

After seeing Andy Action's post on the desert of desolation, I went back through the I series and realised that although its not a connected series of adventures they are all just about the same level set. Then I had a thought. Its a fantastic and gruesome sandbox.

This is not only very cool but somewhere close to BS Headquarters. 
 
Celtic Iron Age braggot brewed in Wisconsin...
In an ancient burial plot in what is now Germany, scientists uncovered a cauldron with remnants of an alcoholic beverage. They teamed up with a Milwaukee brewery to re-create the recipe.

Fair enough. 1% speed of lighte is 6,696,000 miles per hour. That's pretty fast.

I'm finding my best game ideas are based on the nooks and crannies of history.
