So at 35 I've gotten a library card as an adult so I can get free audiobooks and also give Audible the biggest middle finger, then I realized that most libraries don't carry every book ever. So now I'm listening to bad vampire fiction. This is really fun.


So, uh, hypothetically, if one were to try and get into the Metroid series, which game would you start with?


AMC and GME are surging, if you have been doing the #gamestonks thing. I am finally not underwater with my AMC buy in.


Happy Friday, 'toiders. Go out and get smooched soon, if you and your smoochee are both vaxxed. Be good to each other.


Okay, I finished episode 1 of Invincible. Holy. Shit. That is all.


Happy 4th you beautiful bastards.


Watched Mortal Kombat. Definitely trash, but at least enjoyable trash. If you can see it for free (or free with a sub to HBO) I'd say go for it.


What is a word that you feel like should be on UrbanDictionary but isn't? Mine is Junkscaping.


Happy birthday Occams, you horrifying and empathetic hobbyist Tooth Fairy. Also happy birthday Jason, who I cannot describe as verbosely.


Everyone, I just want to express how much better 4/20 is than 4/1. Today is dank memes and chill vibes, 4/1 is looking at everything twice in a suspicious manner, then googling it for veracity, then wondering if what you googled is also a 4/1 prank.


Damn it feels good to have new XIV content.


It's been a while since my mobile app made me @ someone inadvertently. I'm glad it was all of you.


I know we sometimes disagree on things, but know I appreciate there are things we can all come together on.


Took a quick break from Control to power through Tales From the Borderlands finally. It wasn't as long a game as I was expecting but I found it very entertaining. Pity that this format of game oversaturated itself in the market, I'd have played a sequel.


Started Control last week, I've really been enjoying it. Of course in full disclosure, I'm essentially playing it in Story mode difficulty. The combat just isn't really all that compelling to me, and having to re-clear areas is, frankly, annoying.


Finally watched Monster Hunter. It was very not great. A good portion of it was also not even that fun, which is my baseline for Paul WS Anderson movies.


I've finally done it...I've done all the available Main Story Quests in FFXIV. Now to level alternate jobs to 80, starting with tanks.


Happy birthday Bass, I don't have any game footage to share (was powering through XIV 5.3 this weekend), but here's a classic gif(t) for you!


Helped the girlfriend buy a new winter jacket today, her first comment putting it on: "Wow. It has so many pockets." Then the final fantasy victory fanfare started playing in my head. I've done well.


Since @TheBlondeBass asked, here's my first take on a sketchy concept for a talking signpost in my game. I decided to work from the basis of a Herm. I'm hoping to get decent enough to pixellate the final portraits. Today I work on a dialogue system!


About AtomicBananaone of us since 4:45 PM on 03.23.2010

The contents of this blog are opinion-based, as I have no official standing or presence in the tabletop roleplaying industry, and really just thought DICESTRUCTOID was too good of a pun to not at least attempt to engage in.

I've played a number of systems, ranging from D&D 3.5 to more than a few permutations of Powered by the Apocalypse, but some of the standouts are:

- Two year campaign of D&D 4e in the Dark Sun setting, ending in a TPK shortly before my players were set to hit level 30. Sorcerer kings can crit like nobody's business.

- Five years of various Call of Cthulhu games: Horror on the Orient Express, Miskatonic University, Classic 1920s, Secrets of Berlin, Achtung! Cthulhu, Cthulhu Dark Ages.

- Two years of King Arthur Pendragon in the Great Pendragon Campaign, suffered about nine character deaths over the course of the game, while other players lost maybe one or two.

- Two years of the Iron Kingdoms RPG, both running my own game and playing in someone else's.

- Six months running three different chronicles in the New World of Darkness (and updated Chronicles of Darkness).

Games I own and really want to run something in:

The Witcher RPG
Ryuutama: Natural Fantasy Roleplaying
Firefly: The RPG
Sword Noir
Dungeon World
The End of the World
Heroquest 2nd Edition
Through the Breach
