Look, we didn't consider the consequences of our actions when we rolled up on a Red Wizard and we're not about to start now.

Time to run #AdventurersLeague #dnd using the updated system in @foundryvtt . Players like the new character sheets. I'm missing out on some automations while other addons are being updated

hm, PS+ streaming doesnt' seem to support existing cloud-saved files? Is that right? Tried a couple games and my saves don't appear to be there. Most of them are so old but still kind of disapointing

@action_jay@mstdn.ca avatar

@SirTapTap it's there! You can get into the system menu with the PS button or ESC on the keyboard, and in Application Save Management you can copy between from cloud save and streaming save data. It's funky but it works

@SirTapTap haha I panicked for a moment thinking the PS3 games somehow didn't support it. Phew

@SirTapTap hmm maybe just copy for the game you're playing as you go

@SirTapTap sweet! I got a 2, 3 and 4 all in storage and just use streaming on my desktop most of the time too

Someone inspired me to declare that the absolute character assassination that was the asshole DM's take on the whole Strahd and Tatyana backstory was in fact a play that was written at sword point (okay, fang point) to portray Strahd as flatteringly as possible.

"Oh no, it really wasn't your fault, she really did love you, and Sergei's death was an accident, of course." [barf]

@athena_rose922 absolutely. When I found out that "I, Strahd" was an actual book they wrote and released I was like yeah that figures

I'm trying to re-enter the Fediverse and make it work for me. If you have tips, please let me know.

@jiminfantino welcome back Jim! Best I can say is to follow hashtags for things you're interested in and then engage with people from there. The account @FediTips and their website are a great resource too

See how heartfelt they are? You can almost hear their regretful snickers, er, tears... 🤦🏻‍♀️

Via Tamar Hallerman:

Two of the apology letters in the Trump case - from Ken Chesebro and Sidney Powell and obtained by the AJC - were handwritten and just one line long.

Sidney Powell's apology: "I apologize for my actions in connection with the events in Coffee County."

@athena_rose922 luckily DM PCs can just do stuff. Whenever I'm trying to play a competent or cocky character I get brought low immediately by dice rolls 🤣

Heartwarming: no matter how terrible Polliviere is and how hard he tries to court the actual literal Nazi far right contingent, the worst of them still reject him and think (correctly, for once!) That he's just a slime ball chasing clout who doesn't believe in anything

Having surround sound again once again reminds me of how sound design is sadly usually absolute dead last in priorities.

Klee's normal attack bombs have massive base but her charged attack super exploding laser barely has any base, and the explosion spam of her ultimate (perhaps for the better) has like, no bass at all. Very weird.

@action_jay@mstdn.ca avatar

@SirTapTap my favorite surround sound fuckup is Silent Hill Homecoming on PC - the game is absolutely designed for 5.1, but everything is shifted one speaker counterclockwise. For a series that's all about ambience it was pretty wild https://steamcommunity.com/app/19000/discussions/0/2381701715732937446/?ctp=2
