Tripcodes are a way to identify yourself between posts without having to register with the site. To use a tripcode, enter your name as ‹name›#‹key›.You can choose anything you want as the key—it is private and will never be shown to other posters or stored on the server. For example:

Rarity#bestpony → Rarity!.4PK7yxdII

If you want a tripcode containing specific words, you can download a program designed to search for tripcodes, such as Tripcode Explorer.

Email?

Entering an e-mail is optional.

There are also code words you can enter here which perform certain actions when you submit your post.

  • sage — lets you post without bumping a thread.
  • nonoko — uses the original post behavior to redirect to the board index.

These can be used at the same time as an e-mail address by typing ‹email›#‹action›.

You can also use Skype names in place of an e-mail. The notation is the same as a link to a username on skype itself, which is skype:‹username›

Tabletop Games Thread Country code: blank.gif, country type: ponyflag, valid: 42143994[View]

There's a book thread and a video game thread but we don't have one for the thing between those, so here we are. Board games, gamebooks, RPGs, let's nerd out. Tell me about your most recent DnD campaign! I mean, before we all had to suspend our campaigns/attempt to do them online now.

On my end: I finally started playing my kickstarter copy of Thousand Year Old Vampire. The idea of an entirely solitaire roleplaying game about the loneliness of immortality sounded like such a brilliant idea that backing it was a no-brainer, but it'd just been sitting on my shelf til recently. Well, it turns out it's even better than I imagined. I let it take over my week, and when I finished the campaign, all I could think about was starting again. I've held back from doing so, because I think my brain would explode if I did em so close together, but, like, wow. This is probably my favorite RPG of all time.

My vampire this first time started her life in the late 1500s, as a poor, deeply abused farmer's kid. She was bitten by a lady in the forest, as tends to happen, and she immediately went about killing everyone who had ever taken advantage of her, which turned out to be everyone she'd ever met. After declaring this independence, she went solo, eventually met a girl and fell in scandalous love, moved to America, adopted, experienced unofficially-marital bliss, and things generally seemed great.
Theeeennn it turned out that her greatest past abuser had actually been turned into a vampire himself because she hadn't finished eating him, and her obsession with destroying him for good ended up hurting and alienating her family so much that her diary doesn't even mention what happened to them. Like, I as the player have no idea, actually, because she didn't know either. They presumably died, since they were mortal. She became a reeeally fucked up mass murderer for a while who did horrifying and very unique things to her victims, as you do when you have a bad breakup. Then, as she camouflaged among the lady staff of the military in the Mexican-American war, she found a love of cooking. Long story short, it turned out that cooking was what turned her undeath around. She took advantage of being able to keep honing her skills over centuries, and became the head chef of the best restaurant in Mexico City.
Then eventually World War 3 happened, and it was a war between mortals and immortals, and immortals won. So now she serves fancily-prepared human

On Scenario 3 of Gloomhaven: Jaws of the Lion!

It's the most RPG-like pure board game I've ever played - very story-driven for a board game, has character progression, and contains grid/hex based combat with lots of cool positional strategy. Basically DnD if there was nothing but dungeons, and none of the good dramatic character exploration bits that have made DnD so beloved, but somehow it works anyway, probably because the combat is really good, much better than the combat in DnD.

And of course I played it because Gloomhaven is rated the best board game in the world according to BGG. Jaws of the Lion markets itself as Gloomhaven except not an impenetrable brick wall of over the top complicated shit, and therefore new people can actually play it. It is indeed that. Very happy about that, since I was realistically never going to play Gloomhaven otherwise - it just has no darn tutorial but it needs it. JotL is that tutorial. The first scenario in JotL starts you off with no mechanics except basic point-to-point combat, no area of effect attacks, no enemy initiative, nothing, and it adds to the mechanics with each scenario.

Now that I've played it, I know I'll definitely be buying regular Gloomhaven too. The game is so good!!

It is extremely cute, like, absurdly unfairly cute. And the animation is fun and fluid.
I don't the think the anime itself is really any good though. Plot's dull and predictable, animal gimmick isn't really explored in any interesting way, etc. But, eh. I'll probably finish it eventually.

I’ve only watched the first episode, and so far I like the premise. Hopefully it won’t get as dull as you suggest later on.

But yeah, it’s good, but it’s nowhere near as good as Beastars.

Best years were 2000, 2007, and 2014: personal growth and widening of the sphere of my concern in the world around me; at these times, there seemed to be little division between 'inner' and 'outer' (I have a theory that "depression" is just the strict separation of these things).

Worst years were 2005 and 2017, where I realized I hadn't figured it out after all.

What if life is but an illusion? Nothing more than a perception created by the human mind, with reality being nothing more than abstract concepts created and named by us slightly evolved apes which are really just atoms floating in space?

What if we are all caught in a landslide with no escape from reality?

Life as a thinking thing, yes. Life as a physical thing, not necessarily.

'Atoms', 'synapses', and 'evolution' are all things which belong to a conceptual mind; and inasmuch as they correspond to measurements (e.g. atomic energy), they belong to pragmatic models which are derived from metaphysical processes, and which ought to be scrutinized by the philosophy of science (e.g. Kuhn's The Structure of Scientific Revolutions). If we adopt the view of the so-called "naturalist" philosophers that the mind is an epiphenomenon of synaptic activity, then we have no reason to regard synapses as being "out there" or a real factor of our experience in the strict sense.

The idea that Life is an illusion goes back at least to Platonic idealism, which is the basis of the Western tradition of philosophy as we generally understand it (Nietzsche has done the most of any 'modern' philosopher to resurrect the idea of philosophy as a discipline of action in life or askesis); it also is a powerful element of Pauline Christianity, which in its esoteric origins was influenced by Platonism--the idea being, that one could be successful in life, a good and great man, yet still be a "sinner" in the profoundest spiritual sense. This is a more psychologically thoroughgoing rejection of life than what might be called "cultural Kantianism" which pervades our thinking today (that is, the notion that our cultural experience is representational, but our scientific experience is 'real').
