Running TTRPGs Solo or Co-op

I am a long time tabletop rpg player and GM. I have run many games in my personal favorite system, Cypher System, and played in many others. But little over a year ago, I became a father. Before that I moved states, where I had no friends or family, a couple months before the pandemic hit. A lot of my tabletop group is scattered aroudn the world now, and many don’t play or can’t.

Have a Backup Plan

This post was sparked by recent events revolving around Wizards of the Coast (WotC), Dungeons & Dragons (D&D), and the Open Gaming License (OGL). I personally believe you should always have a diverse set of options, even in hobbies. Let’s use Tabletop RPGs for example. I personally don’t care much for D&D and its system, I prefer Cypher system personally, or the many other unique systems that exist. But many people only play D&D and nothing else, they only know it as a system, world, and playstyle. Read more

Year in Review: 2022

I have never done one of these before, but based on inspiration of other blogs I have read recently, and the Steam Replay. I figured I would go over my year in Books, Games (both video and board), and Hardware. A little note, I became a father at the beginning of the year, and it might explain the weird skew of gaming, books, and hardware. Just food for thought. I rarely give 5/5s, they are reserved for exceptionally good things. Read more

Reducing Ones Reliance on Google

There are many efforts around De-Googling all over the internet, but I personally find those are not realisitic for the majority of the people. Many people have no problems sacrificing privacy for convenience. Or they aren’t tech savvy enough to find stuff out themselves. What many in communities for degoogling, or the ones that will read this blog post forget sometimes, is the masses are very technically illiterate still. Many of them don’t know the difference between the Browser, the Internet, and their Operating System. Read more

Stable Diffusion on Fedora 36 and AMD 6750XT

Yesterday, finally released their Stable Diffusion model to the public. Having played with NightCafe, Midjourney, and getting access to Dall-E 2, I was excited to be able to run this locally on my own computer. I have a AMD Threadripper 2990WX with an AMD Radeon 6750XT video card. I figured this was plenty powerful enough to get local generation so I didn’t have to pay others when I have plenty of horsepower at home eating up electricity as it is. Read more
