fursona pics, heroforge 

Here's Rin! Heroforge doesn't have a panda base, so I had to go with bear and work with what I have, but I think she looks great!

introduction 

Hi, I'm Hope! My pronouns are she/her! I'm a 22 year old queer furry from the UK. I'm super into tabletop rpgs (I mostly play DnD 5e), pro wrestling, magic: the gathering, video games and a bunch of other things!

My fursona is a red panda called Rin. Her pronouns are also she/her. She's a bubbly and outgoing scientist/engineer, and she's featured in my profile pic.

Nice to meet you all!

You're telling me those gangly bastards were actually snakes the whole time, and they just made some clayface assholes instead?

On another note, there's a new alien that comes from the Thin Men, the infiltration unit from last game. There's also an updated, perfect infiltration unit. These are not the same alien.

re: xcom shitpost 

Actually I think the alien designs in that game are all based on stuff the designers were into

I started playing xcom 2 again and I wanna know why firaxis gave the Faceless such a finely sculpted ass. They've got cake

re: formula one 

Also, Vettel back on the podium again! It feels a bit poetic for him to be holding the podium on the same race that Hamilton equals the WDC record.

formula one 

This race was great holy fuck

I know that Hamilton's dominance isn't usually fun to watch but he showed exactly why he's the GOAT today tbh.

Smooth, Daft Mouth, Nightmovin', The End, Wallspin - all absolute bangers. What the fuck.

Last time sharing the gofundme, :boost_ok: 

Electrician's coming by today, and hopefully we'll have power back on by tonight. Our big worry is that the Elec Man hasn't seen our setup, and once he does might go "oh, no, your house is deeply busted and needs more work". If we could get pushed the last 571 dollars to our goal, it'd save us a lot of anxiety.

Overage will be going to replacing spoiled food, taking care of blown appliances and other fallout from this.

re: Smile For Me major spoilers 

Also I love how all three of the children are varying degrees of feral. Tim Tam's email being "iwillgetyou@rock.fist" is hilarious. I love these goblins.

Smile For Me major spoilers 

Me and my partner played through Smile For Me, and the interactive epilogue thing and I gotta say that the way they incorporated fanwork into the epilogue is incredible, very creative and super heartwarming. It's one of the most touching ways for a game to end, and it makes a really small game feel like a big deal.

re: f1 game 

I qualified 9th and I was in 4th coming out of the second corner thanks to a massive sweeping overtake around the outside

re: f1 game 

I got the pair of them to brake too late going into the hairpin in Bahrain. Albon went off track and rejoined in like dead last and Ricciardo ended up blocking the people behind him, keeping the others away for the next couple of laps until my stop.

f1 game 

I restarted MyTeam recently and I managed to drag my shitbox of a car up to 4th in my second race of the first season with a combo of A) an absolutely bonkers start, B) outracing Albon and Ricciardo and C) a safety car when I was pitting anyway

@gumby also weirdly just scrolled past this image again on twitter with perfect timing. Was actually thinking of this exact image when I made the analogy. Just replace "famous people" with "bigots" and "body shaming" with "ableism"

Edit: coulda sworn I hit upload the first time.

us politics, uk politics 

I'm trying not to like... follow the us election too closely, but I gotta say that I'm so used to the uk elections, where I know the result as soon as I wake up even if I wake up early, that it's weird to me that it's still going

I know that's because of timezones and mail-in ballots and stuff but it's still odd

re: magic: the gathering thoughts about jeweled lotus 

A card doesn't have to be super busted to be a bad card that shouldn't have been printed.

Show thread

re: magic: the gathering thoughts about jeweled lotus 

I'm seeing a lot of talk about this card (scryfall.com/card/cmr/319/jewe), and a lot of it seems to be missing the point of why it's bad exactly. So, yeah, it does lead to a turn 1 Urza, but Urza is already busted anyway so it's not that much of a change to a competitive tier deck. I agree that it's not all that powerful in cEDH decks.

However, it absolutely warps the casual format. It means that, if you get lucky with your draws/mulligans, you can win much faster and make the game less fun for people around. The format doesn't need turn 1 Kenrith or Bruudiclad or Jhoira, etc, etc. It sucks for the same reason that Sol Ring sucks - not because it's nuts busted, but because it makes games a bit less fun and interesting by being there, and it's an auto-include in a lot of decks. It's gonna be real expensive too.
