1Hoy les voy a hablar de un aparato de alas muy cortas, pero la narración empieza con uno de alas muuuuuy largas…
La pequeña historia F-104 #Starfighters de #Pakistan durante el conflicto con #India en 1965
2Nos remontamos al 27 de abril de 1960. Dos transportes de la #USAF, un #Douglas C-124 y un #Lockheed C-130 despegan desde Incirlik en Turquía, volando hasta la Base Aérea de Badaber-Peshawar, en Pakistán. A bordo llevan combustible, repuestos y personal de mantenimiento para una
3misión especial, además viajan 2 pilotos de la #CIA, Francis Gary Powers y como reserva Bob Ericson. Al día siguiente, un Lockheed U-2C realiza el mismo trayecto, pilotado por Glen Dunaway
El 29 de abril se informa que la misión se ha retrasado un día, por tanto, Ericson vuela

On the heels of this semi-comedic exchange with @jachilli, a thought for #Vampire Storytellers out there:

Fiction frequently presents vampires as highly competent and often highly intelligent and organized. Even the less-intelligent ones are dangerous due to their strength.

1/
You can get some interesting mileage out of tweaking that expectation. Introduce vampires who aren't hyper-competent, whose successes are the result of structural advantages or assistance from other parties.

2/
The incompetent Prince who's convinced of their own superiority, propped up by a small group of elders simply because they're easy to manipulate. The Primogen who received a political appointment, but has terrible plans. The bumbling, lazy sheriff.

1A día de hoy ¿cuál dirían que es el caza ligero por excelencia? ¿El F-16? ¿El Gripen? ¿Y si hablamos de un aparato que era la mitad de la mitad?

Para mí, este es el caza ligero por excelencia, una pequeña historia del Folland #Gnat (y su hermanastro indio HAL #Ajeet)
2El padre de la criatura era el ingeniero William Edward Willoughby "Teddy" Petter, quien había trabajado previamente en numerosas aeronaves de la firma Westland, como el #Lysander, el #Whirlwind o el #Welkin Image
3incluso trabajó en el proyecto para mejorar el #Spitfire corrigiendo cierta inestabilidad del diseño original

Tras ciertas desavenencias con la dirección de @westland, en septiembre de 1944, Peter se despidió y se llevó consigo los trabajos para la propuesta B1/44 Image

How long shall they kill our #Prophets while we stand aside and look?
#BobMarley was #murdered by the CIA w/ #inducedcancer b/c of his #political activity, exposing the #Cabal and starting a #revolution

See the documentary: #WhoKilledBobMarley?
Ex-CIA agent #BillOxley used faked press credentials to gain access to #BobMarley at his #BlueMountain retreat
“I gave him a pair of Converse All Stars size 10
When he tried on the right shoe, he screamed out ‘OUUUCH’
The nail in the shoe was tainted w/ cancer viruses & bacteria”
#BobMarley’s son #Ziggy claims it’s plausible his father was murdered b/c of his political activity

“I was 12 years old when my daddy passed away
People say it was cancer
Somebody stepped on his toe and that caused an injury, then he dies of cancer? In my mind it doesn’t add up”

Been down the rabbit-hole of #Croatian #folklore - here's a #thread of what I found:

'#VAMPIRES IN DALMATIA: THE EXAMPLE OF THE VILLAGE OF ŽRNOVO ON THE ISLAND OF #KORČULA IN THE EIGHTEENTH CENTURY' hrcak.srce.hr/138625

This one is especially close as its my family island.
'From #Folklore to Fiction: Early Literary Manifestations of the #Vampire Motif' hrcak.srce.hr/200179

Fun fact: the term 'vampyr' first appeared in an 11th century Slavic manuscript vilifying #Bogomils, a #Gnostic dualist heresy that was endemic to the #Balkans
'#Witches' Zoopsychonavigations and the Astral Broom in the Worlds of #Croatian Legends as (Possible) Aspects of #Shamanistic Techniques of Ecstasy (and Trance)' researchgate.net/publication/33…

Bapna also Bafana or Bapna or Bafna (Hindi: बाफना / बाफणा )is Indian Jain or Brahmin community. The name was used 4 for Brahmin in #Andhra. Derived from Bahufana & Bafanha. Phaṇa ( Sk. phaṇa) the hood of a snake. How did #Jains end up with #Sudra??This is major spiritual #fraud
#Brahmins are apparently meant to be one group with Jains-this is covenant system. They were imposed on Sudra in British era when Tirupati temple was set up. #Nemi (Jain/Jinn) statue removed and the Tirupati Jinn installed. This is not good news 4 Brahmins as #Nemi is #wrathful
"To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning". "So the guard took away their choice food and the wine they were to drink and gave them vegetables instead" (vegan) #Daniel 1:16 #JainBrahminAramic

Und weil es die liebe @chra war die mich wegen @KhazAndCrit drauf gebracht hatte, gibt's den #Duetgame Thread jetzt auch noch in deutsch für die #pnpde #ttrpg Twitter Blase 😘

#pnpde
Duospiele - 1on1 oder Duetgames - was ist das?

#Duetgame = 1 #ttrpg, 1 #GM / #DM + 1 Spieler

Du kannst ein Duetgame mit den Regeln von so ziemlich jedem #ttrpg spielen

#ttrpg #dnd #dnd5e #pnpde
Ich habe die meiste Erfahrung damit #DSA und #DnD / #dnd5e Duetgames zu leiten, aber ich habe auch schon #Duetgames in #Shadowrun und #Vampire the Masquerade gespielt und es hat super funktioniert und hat so viel Spaß gemacht!

It is really hard to begin designing games that incorporate uncertainty and adversity, but where the game mechanics don't *inherently* imply antagonism.
RPGs are descended from zero-sum competitive games, filtered through concepts of attrition inherited from war games.

What this means is that our rules are all based on "do you beat the other player," tied to basic scoring systems.
Think about how we don't even blink at the idea of a "contested roll" being central to a system.
