  1. That's such a cute one! I saw this and thought of you all, and the Mudcrab Merchant in Morrowind: Yeah, I'm still taking care of my mom. We got vaccinated, and the Health Unit will be contacting us in the new year for our boosters. Mom is still in bed, so we're relying on a mobile team to get her vaccination. What are you looking forward to in the new year? I'm trying to get myself together so I can make plans- I applied for some writing workshops and grants. It would be nice to get one (or some!) of those.
  2. Meery Minionmas, friends! Those literature things became a thing, I'm happy to say. I had two stories and an interview out in print this week, and there's an anthology I'm in coming out in the new year. I hope you and yours are keeping safe and sound in this very turbulent season. 💗
  3. ...Busy. Yeah, sorry for vanishing for awhile. I got swept up in some projects and before I knew it, it was summer. I was on a podcast! And I have another one booked for next month. Both of them are literature podcasts. Some other stuff literature related too, that I don't think I can really talk about until they're a thing. I also have been running Numenera on Roll20. I had two groups but we're down to one now. I also finished my DnD campaign! Busy, busy!
  4. I saw this today. It's exactly what playing Honey Heist is like
  5. Yeah, set up was about an hour. Most of the set up could be done anytime, though. The developer actually gave me permission to set up a special server for the game, complete with a bot that does most of the actual gameplay work for you so you don't have to mess around with the clues, suspects, locations and searching cards at all. We just had to come up with some basics for our characters... relationships, stuff like that. Oh, and record our 'voicemails' to Alice. We only had one bump the whole time. Someone forgot to assign the ending card so we were running out of time and still didn't know the answer But I nudged them in the OCC chat and we got a really interesting cliffhanger ending which wouldn't have been possible otherwise. So it worked out
  6. Tidz! Nice to see you! How have you been? I did. It went really well. I don't know how much you'd want to hear in case you want to play the game yourself but it went by really fast and was very immersive. I think including set up the game took almost exactly two and a half hours. That wasn't including the post-game banter where we got all of our thoughts out about how the game went. Made some friends too. I would definitely play it again.
  7. Today I'm running a 'silent RPG' called Alice is Missing. We're playing it completely over text on Discord. I'm pretty excited to see how it goes.
  8. We had a total of 5 or 6, I think. I was running it so I didn't really have a bear in the honey jar We had two sessions, and are thinking about a sequel!
  9. I haven't had time to check in with the gang about running a game here. There are some really nice 'micro-rpgs' that you can play in one session. I ran one called Honey Heist, where you play as a criminal bear. You have two stats: CRIMINAL and BEAR. : It was our Halloween game between D&D campaigns. A mobile team of nurses came to vaccinate mom and me-- since mom can't walk, and I'm her sole caregiver. Otherwise, I wouldn't be eligible for it. And my immune system is cycling through all of the side effects. Just a little of everything...
  10. Maybe I should talk to the gang about getting the band back together...
  11. Oof, that's tough to hear. I can't really get in on either the livestreams or Patreon, so I guess that makes me a casual. I do talk with some of the gang when they nudge me on Steam, but most of the time I'm AFK and just forgot to log off. Maybe I could bring one of my text games over here, if my regulars would be up for it, revive the place a little bit. We mostly play on Roll20 or Discord.
  12. Oh, friends! I'm sorry I missed your lovely replies. Retirement has not been kind, I'm afraid. My schedule is all over the place nowadays. Mom's health has declined a lot; I spend most of my time tending to her now which makes streaming... inconvenient to say the least. My only respite is in the form of D&D I'm running now on Roll20 and Discord. I'm glad to see you holding in here! I have no idea what's been going on in my absence-- what is this 'live chat?' Is that the Discord? Anyway, much love from me.
  13. None of the games are active atm but you could always pitch one
