New Roll For Topic episode!

I'm back from podcast paternity leave and Andy and I talked about what we do with all the secrets our players don't discover.

It's sometimes very very hard to not blurt out "y'all missed something really cool back there!"

New Roll For Topic episode is live! I came on my podcast as a "guest" this week to talk about running games when you lack the motivation to do so with @Ohbejuan and Andy:

Coding Notebook? 

not 100% sure if what I'm looking for exists. Do any of you keep coding notebooks of snippets, definitions of internal terms, etc.? Trying to stay organized and looking for something that is not quite a wiki. maybe more features than what I'm doing right now which is a long text file.

Job starts tomorrow and I’m just a ball of stress. It’s been a loooong time since I’ve been the new person at work.

Is the preferred way to bundle up a pile of markdown and other structured data into HTML, ePub, and PDF still Pandoc?

Thanks to @hypomodern, heather, and @dgoings for coming over and helping with the basement! It’s basically all framed now (aside from some filler pieces). Need to run to Home Depot for a few electrical things. Slowly getting there.

Ran across this gif of the animations for a prototype we never finished and it's making me regret it! She Dwarf from
