You wouldn't know a hypocrite if one called you stupid to your face

Of course Senate Majority Leader and #GraveDiggerOfDemocracy Senator McConnell is going to attempt to replace Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, may her memory be a blessing. Of course he doesn’t care about what he said in 2016 regarding not even giving Merrick Garland a vote. None of this is surprising. It is not surprising that we, the American public, cannot and should not take the Senate …

Introducing: Wednesday Weeds!

Hello! Misinformation sucks, doesn’t it? You’re just checking out the old world wide web for some information on how to deal with allergies and next thing you know you’re listening to a webinar about how you can quit your job and sell essential oils for a living.

Mystic: A NPC Class for the d20 System

This class is part of my on going effort to run Spelljammer in 3.5. It closely mirrors the Adept class, but casts arcane spells instead of divine spells. Being an NPC class, it is intended to be worse than PC classes like wizard or sorcerer at every level. It would make a good class for a NPC spelljammer pilot. Mystic Hit Dice d6 Class Skills The mystic’s class skills (and the key ability …

Free (or donation) Tarot Readings

By now everyone is aware of the global emergency in place, and that the best advice is to stay home unless you are an essential service employee. Staying at home is the best action at the moment, but it may not be easy for all of us; humans are social animals and we suffer real tangible effects from social isolation.

Therefore I think you, yes you, should listen to this podcast as well. As any student of history knows, there are a lot of bastards out there.

Last gpg key of 2019

The year is drawing to a close, the days are short, it’s time to rotate encryption keys? yep! In keeping with my policy, I have rotated the encryption subkey for my gpg key as it expired at the end of the month. This is only the encryption subkey, so the trust of the main signing key should remain the same for you. The fingerprint remains the same as: F535 AEEC C57B C4EE FE62 6871 B19C D619 …
