Tycho: I’m typing this on Thursday because I am getting up at eff o’clock on Friday to pick up Amy and go the Airport so I go down - literally down, on a map - to The Descent.  Which is a D&D Event celebrating the new campaign stuff!  Our own book comes out next month (!!!), June 18th, but the Multiverse has continued to spin in the meantime, and down seems like a scary direction.  Let’s see where they end up taking us.  Elyssa and I will be down there with The “C” Team, and I’ll be playing a solo game in the guise of Omin on Friday with a…

 News Post: **Private message for Tycho** Posted: Wed, 15 May 21:01:00 PST (Gabe)
Gabe: I disagree man. I think there is a difference between what you and I do, or what a writers room does and what people mean when they say “writing by committee”. That term specifically (for me at least) means the work lacks a cohesive vision and probably needed what I would call a Captain. Someone whose job it is to hold in their head the vision of the final product and steer the ship of creators in that direction. That person should absolutely listen to their crew and incorporate their ideas but they need to keep their hands on the wheel or they will be driven off course by the…

Tycho: Giving Star Wars to the Game Of Thrones people is a fascinating choice, particularly as these creators grow more spent and villainous in perception with every passing episode.  I would have given it to Deadwood’s David Milch, but that’s just me.  As Star Wars is largely about Lineage, of course, Carnivale’s Daniel Knauf would also work.  I mean, while we’re giving it to HBO people.  What we need in truth is an HBO Star Wars series, not another Trilogy.  But anyway. Watching Game of Thrones, as a fandom, as a narrative, and as a cultural product…

Tycho: There’s an article on Venture Beat, which is a website, about how a proposed anti-loot box bill has zero chance of passing.  It wouldn’t surprise me at all if it didn’t pass.  Like most legislation, I suspect it constitutes a kind of opportunistic fan-fiction.  Also, nobody has any idea what they’re fucking talking about. I mean it.  Nobody has any idea what a loot box is.  You might get lucky and find someone who has heard of “Loot Crate” - these will require an additional level of engagement.  You will tell them that people…

Tycho: My version of hell is one where my mind operates incorrectly.  It’s one thing to just be more “enthusiastic” than usual about adjectives; for me, any increase over my already taut baseline shoves the whole operation into space.  I’m not talking about that.  I’m talking about a fever-borne state of mind where every physical act is coupled with an imaginary purpose in a dreamscape based on rural Oregon, such that needing to cough correlates to placing a fencepost and actually coughing is digging a hole.  It went on like this for ten sleepless…
