PILOTING EGGBERT: An asynchronous chatroom game Show more
Ever wanted to be an alien, piloting a human-shaped vessel in a chatroom full of fellow alien pilots? And while you'd love to do it all the time, life gets in the way, so maybe you'd only drop in to the pilot seat every once in awhile?
Then you may like PILOTING EGGBERT, an RPG-shaped asynchronous experiment I'm gonna run in Discord.
See you in the cockpit!

Proxima midnight: has a job she likes and excels at, likes her co-workers
Gamora: still struggling with childhood trauma, travels the universe with a bunch of assholes who don't respect her
... I find one of these things more aspirational
academic bitterness, bad mentoring (on me) Show more
the best thing about an undergrad who has consistently refused to put the work in submitting the manuscript is now you have an external figure telling him it's not good enough
science isn't easy, sucker
sorry, your mentors are probably less bitter than me

occasionally, ads decide I'm a non-man of a certain age, without kids or a spouse, and start going HARD on the disney shit
and so it's always weird for me to see peers get REALLY into disney. Like it's just some "now we're 30" milestone.

One good answer is "orcs are monstrous and inhuman and attack any humans on sight, killing for fun"
but then... why are they a player race?
D&D thought Show more
things I wanna ask LG characters:
1. "If your character came upon a camp of orcs near a town, with evidence that they'd been stealing goods from the town on a regular basis, what would you do?"
2. "What gives you the authority to do that? If that's might, why is your character okay with willfully murdering sentient beings for other people's stuff? Why is the law on your side?"
The basic premise of D&D for LG characters often eludes me.

therapist: "I thought you weren't coming!"
me: "I thought about cancelling because it's my birthday"
therapist: "you could have..."
me: "yeah but just because it's my birthday doesn't mean I should stop doing self care and this is part of that"
therapist: "yes... good"
@meena to be fair, I'm fairly actively not looking
@meena any reason?
@awinter it's still my birthday! thank you :)

I've been staying up too late so I get weirdly sleepy and can do things without my anxiety being in the way
I should probably just get drugs, huh?
... weirdly, I get headaches when I try to go to bed earlier
@polychrome 92.5% of it is 100% silver

I think I love you
More than I'd admit
And I was not prepared to be seeing you like this
And I'm weighed down in this city
It's hard to live here, and I've been feeling restless
There's this battle raging in me
Don't want to love you anymore
But I can't help it
(not actually angsting atm)
