• Redefining gender

    What is gender? What is a gender? Noun gender (plural genders) One who gends. Okay, so, that wasn’t terribly helpful. What does it mean to gend? Verb gend (third-person singular simple present gends, present participle gending, simple past and past participle gended) (transitive) To identify with and/or behave in accordance with, and thereby in turn shape, […]

  • I’m (not) pro-therapy

    I’m anti-anti-therapy. So, I’m basically pro-therapy, and the title was basically clickbait. Why am I making this distinction? I’ve seemed to have turned some people off in my past because of how much I recommend trying therapy. I’ve had good experiences with therapy. That being said, I acknowledge that many people haven’t, and I also acknowledge that being […]

  • It’s a life update! 6

    [This is an old blog post that I wrote at the end of April 2022, but I gotta just get it out there.] In my last update, I was all like, oh yeah, I’ll totally post a conlang update soon. So, as you can see, I definitely did not do that. I was working on […]

  • Let’s play d6 ARKFORT: Trugnak, part 1

    An hour of playing and writing up as I go. Trugnak begins with nothing but a knife, a mattock, and a supply. She ventures into the overgrown forest for the first time where a hideous goblin was waiting in ambush. She’s heard the tales of what happens if you don’t kill this thing; so, she […]

  • Abortion, life, politics, protesting

    Right to be free of a parasite I don’t have a uterus, but I do like to share my feelings. I’m furious and afraid. Imagine sitting in a Discord voice call, playing Fortnite, and learning about the leaked draft that shows the Supreme Court’s intention to overturn Roe v. Wade. Just a bit surreal. Not […]

  • How do you play d6 ARKFORT?

    After watching the Questing Beast review of Disciples of Bone and Shadow (a very chunky solo OSR tabletop RPG), I’ve become even more convinced that including an example of play for a tabletop RPG is a great idea. It came up just the other night for d6 ARKFORT. My life-long bestie is very supportive, and […]

  • What is d6 ARKFORT?

    I’ve enjoyed playing some DARK FORT on my own. The group for which I was GMing was no longer able to meet consistently, and not playing tabletop RPGs killed the momentum that I had with my then-current tabletop RPG project, so I side-stepped into messing around with solo/GM-less tabletop RPG stuff. I’d honestly been intimidated […]

  • It’s a life update! 5

    And here I thought that the time between 2020’s end of October report and my catching up report at the beginning of the year was a long time to go without a blog post. So much has happened in the past year. We found out that my partner was going to need surgery for the […]

  • Update on the greyfolk conlang

    It’s the moment we’ve all been waiting for. Because, uh, this website is supposed to be for my conlang first and foremost. (Oops.) I’ve been doing a good amount of thinking after Pandunia moved away from using vowel endings to designate word class, and I think I’m going to drop using vowels to show word […]

  • Catching up report

    My last post was the end of October report, which feels like it was forever ago. Since then, I’ve added five more things to my itch.io, the US presidential election happened, the holidays came and went, my partner had to get four MRIs, the MRIs found a non-cancerous brain tumor, she had to get a […]
