I get it. The deeper we get into this @GOP #christofascist #HandmaidsTale #LARP, the more it feels like we are living in a dystopian novel and the more draw on stories to understand our experience. 1/ A Planned Parenthood clinic...

The idea that a cyberpunk Red State sheriff - Boss Hogg meets Robocop - would use period-tracking apps for dragnet abortion surveillance is a great setup for a novel, but it's not very reflective of reality. 3/

Because most of people don`t know who that #Russia`n ex-#FSB and #GRU agent Igor"Strelkov" Girkin is, it's probably best to tell something about him. Image
Girkin was 20 years old #spetsnaz when #SovietUnion collapse. He take part of war against #Moldova. #Russia form a puppet state called #Transnistria there. Area still exist today and is occupied by Russian forces. Russia don`t have border with the area.
After that Girgin go to #Bosnia fight for #Serbia maybe part of #Russia`n army or just a volunteer for political reasons. In 1993 he graduated with a master’s degree in history.

This week on my podcast, I read my latest @Medium column, "Against The Great Forces of History," in which I describe how @AdaPalmer's pedagogic techniques as a Renaissance historian at the UChicago has changed my view of how the world works.

Palmer specializes in banned information during the Inquisitions, specifically in Florence. She's an authority on how the Inquisitions dealt with witchcraft, homosexuality, pornography, heresy and banned science. You should read her blog!

Is the USA having a #coup, or is #LARP just really making a comeback?
Coup or live action role-playing game (LARP)?
US Markets seem to not care. An actual coup would move these.

People seek our advice bc of our large #playtesting pool. Real #IndieGameDev talk? It was PURE LUCK. We have no special advice. Me (Liv) and Jim went to school in the States. One of our classmates knew the Rev from LGBT and adult sex ed presentations. #TTRPG #indie #TRPG (1/4)
We three ran a #LARP Rev Casey wrote. He ran a game in his home city. 2 other cities ran LARPs too. Plus a gaggle of "LARPletops". By the end, we had over 200 people who played the game. The Dallas and Boston ppl especially stuck around, *starting* us with 60+ ppl. #TTRPG (2/4)
The Rev is... prolific. Non-stop idea machine. Endless notes & brainstorms. Piles of material, from fragmentary concept notes to full drafts. 1/2 the original testers (around 30) stuck around and built tables. Jim and I kept at it as #playtest leads. #TTRPG #indiedev #RPGs (3/4)

OK, I got permission to spew. I (Liv) am currently running the playtest rounds on a diceless/LARP version of Motif. Player facing bidding system for actions. Flat difficulties/spend costs. Similar story pool for bidding on story elements. #TTRPG #indiedev
Did not think I would like the narrator bleed. But it really works. Color me wrong. It was empowering. The resource management tactics are great too. PvP is ugly by raw mechanics (everyone autosuceeds). RP is pushed because of limited resource pools. LOVE IT.
All that to say: Picking up Jim's role on this one and project managing the manuscript for the #Motif Parlour Engine. Fine-tuned for diceless parlour games and #theaterstyle #LARP. A radical rewrite of the diceless system that ran the old Arthur's Legacy game. #TTRPG #indiedev

ALERTA CAVANI | THREAD
Quinta-feira, dia 9, às 21:00H, joga o @FCPorto !
Aqui: footballia.net/matches/fc-por…
Já não aguentamos mais sem o nosso Porto. Então inventámos:
sorteámos um jogo ao calhas, entre 1992 e 2010, e vamos vê-lo no dia da semana e no horário em que ele aconteceu. Como se estivesse a acontecer nesse momento.
Isso quer dizer que se o @portouniversal não “estiver” no estádio, é provável que tuíte durante o jogo. Que o @atascadosilva publicará “Um copo de 3 ao intervalo” e que o @portadezanove estará completamente out até acabar o jogo.

If you follow True Eye the Spy he's back and not mentioning his supposed drugging, child p*rn accusations over his "compendium" and now he's on the run between safe houses.
Says the account is going dark in 5 mins...
Go-bag protocol has been activated...that sounds serious and spy-like.

1) Friends, #Q post from yesterday indicates a plan to discredit #QAnon is being deployed. Here is what to watch for and expect.

They're panicked & desperate, recent events are starting to zero in on the #cabal's deepest secret. Some thoughts...

#WWG1WGA #MAGA #TheStorm @POTUS
2) The recent #NYTimes op-ed on #Qanon was huge. Our response was magical. Measured, fact based, not R v D, and polite. #WeThePeople did a brilliant job. At last check it was over 700 comments and very few retwteets.

#GreatAwakenening #QArmy #Q #MAGA

3) Keep this tactic alive. The new wave, per #Q's drop, will be coming from the ever grumpy #4chan which goes absolutely mental over any mention of #QAnon. So the tactic will be pitting the #Anons against each other, using #mediamatters in a coordination with the #MSM. #FakeNews
