It would be better for the world for Russia to lose.

When aggression results in loss, it disincentivizes aggression.

Libertarians seek a world without aggression, where humans interact in exclusively consensual ways.

Aggression should be consigned to history.

@gherhartd (1) Take a look at Golden Sky Stories; (2) Do you want no violence at all, or just characters that don't use violence, e.g. Call of Cthulhu investigators or other horror scenarios (these could involve self defence); or think even a mundane investigative game.

My thoughts on " and : Addressing an incongruity", and why is , which can be just a click of a button (although a good photograph may involve a lot more), protected by copyright, when AI generated art is not? Maybe it is just time to re-evaluate, stop allowing large corporations to profit from increasingly restrictive copyright and get rid of it altogether, moving towards , with technology providing solutions through patronage and crowdfunding. That way we can head towards a future where creativity, irrespective of its source -- be it human or AI -- is celebrated instead of being stifled.

@dwgill @ami it seems like justification of some very narrow cherry picking "this one is too hot, and that one is too cold".

It may also show some bias/damage control by specifically mentioned WotC, who were very late to the party, compared to Fate, Dungeon World, Blades in the Dark, Gumshoe, etc.

I think if you look at the number of derivative systems from those (and the high ratings on places like rpggeek), that their claim it "kills open-source" is demonstrably not true.

It seems to me like a clear combination of "not invented here", plus upset/anger that WotC outflanked the whole debacle by an extreme reversal. (Hey, I'm upset at what WotC attempted, but also very happy with the eventual outcome).

Even the outcome of things like now being released under are a great outcome. (ORC is better than nothing).

@colehaddon An existential threat that will destroy all jobs? Yes, please. I don't want to have to work unless I want to.

A "star trek" future would leave humanity free to pursue exploration, science, arts, or whatever they wished.

@ami is good, but is a distraction -- there are already perfectly good licences like that are used for many highly rates RPGs such as , Dungeon World (), Blades in the Dark (), , , and .

There is no need to waste months and months of development when something already exists that meets their criteria.

Thank you not . It is fair enough to have systems that don't support yet, but to actively break/fail to work when IPv6 is enabled is pretty bad. Ignore IPv6, sure, but to have your IPv4 systems stop working simply when IPv6 is enabled doesn't really allow any kind of migration path.

THE COURT OF THE TYRANT AT TOUR TORIEL is finally released, out in the wild, and most importantly off my desk!

This is the fourth installment of the Ascent to Prime campaign I've been developing which teaches new players how to play (and run) Cortex Prime games.

It's really cool, if I do say so myself.

Devlog here:

#KeystoneFantasy #CortexPrime #TTRPG #rpgArt

When I interview people, I'll often ask if there's any interesting dev related topics that have caught their eye.

These days I'm adding "... and you can't answer 'ChatGPT' or 'AI'". is counting 3.000 installations of the #ActivityPub Plugin so far 🎉

So, vs . Looks to be ending up the same as Azure vs . If you already have the template, and deploy it once, it is good. But developing CLI scripts is quicker (debug one step at a time, rather than all at once). And templates run into the same dead ends: e.g. decides it needs to recreate the entire subnet, so it attempts to, but runs into an IP address conflict with the existing one, and the whole thing stops. There are things/changes that declarative approaches just can't do, and you need to use migrations (CLI scripts).

Since I'm not really participating in Twitter, I wanted to bring something that was started over there here. Cam Banks ( @RustySellsword ) has been one of the most gracious and kind people in the #TTRPG industry that I have ever spoken with. He encouraged me when I first started looking at rebooting Tribe 8. He took out the time to speak to me, as well as the business manager at DP9. I don't think I would have continued my effort if it hadn't been for him.

Watching Dami Im at the Brisbane Eurovision preview party. I still don't understand why Australia is part of Eurovision :-)

Delve into and and it's impact on our future with my latest article, "AI is taking our jobs: Yes, that is the objective"! I discuss the potential benefits of AI-driven productivity, its impact on society, implementation of a , and how it relates to 's vision of a better future.

So another good thing out of the snafu: the system from @Chaosium has been released under the instead of the crappy limited licence they previously had (that prevented mixing the with public domain sources like Arthurian myth or Cthulhu). Not as good as , and unnecessary, but still better than before
