What a thing to wake up to

I tried using Scribus a few years ago. I found Affinity Publisher is way more intuitive. I’ve been using it since 2019. I’ve since bought the whole suite, mostly out of how they integrate with Publisher.
I love this. I love that using qualities make them harder to use, which I take as being running out breath, until you Catch Your Breath. It’s just such a cool idea. The way relationships are done? Wonderful. The ever necessary tables of character archetypes and descriptors. It’s so cute looking.
I know the logistics around doing print for games, but damn do I want a print copy of this to add to my collection of magical girl rpgs.
I dunno off the top of my head how many are free for commercial use. I do know some aren’t. It’d be a good idea to check or look for free fonts that are similar.
I mainly emulate Traveller so I stick with Libertinus and whatever neo-grotesk look good to me at the time, I don’t keep the old school DnD fonts in my working memory.
I for one would rather Nazis, transphobes, and other flavors of fascist bootlickers to not be in the same spaces as I am as much as possible. So saying “No Nazis” does a good job making them tell on themselves and self-select out.
Unfortunately no,or at least not publicly.
However, I just looked at the print file and it doesn’t look like I included your entry, and in order to add to the print file and make it available for print I’d have to order a new proof, which isn’t something I want to do again.
A Crappy way to show the Crappiness of crappy suburbia, I assume. I've never lived in suburubia. I imagine probably like this based on television. Hey this is probably perfect as either a suburb for Troika! the city, and/or whatever Troikawave cities there are in Prismot (which might also be suburbs of Troika just more 80s). I guess Crapland is like 90s suburbia. Troikagrunge.
Every time I look at this, I am both soothed by its chill and calming aesthetic, and enraged at how good it is.
A more streamlined and lighter take on traversing the Humpbacked Sky.
PROBABLY COMPATIBLE with Aetherjack's Almanac.
Brian Yaksha's "The Catlands Jazzband Gazeteer" is a setting book, intended specifically for Troika! but hey, its mostly tables about things and people and happenings. So you can use it for basically anything.
So you see the cover and it's got some cute cat pictures, most of the art is cute. This is gonna be cute and light hearted right? HAHA.
No. Catland not someplace you want to be; it's someplace you want to escape while you still have your human facilities. It feels like home, in as much as a soggy place can feel like my home which is all places to be from, and pass through, but not places to live lest you allow the place to truly work on you and change you to fit it, oh yes the desert may seem lovely but.....
Ahem, where was I....Oh yes.
Or not. You could become cattish, which not as good as being a cat. But probably better than not being any kind of cat.
Honestly, I want to go to Catland. I want to go there and see the cattish and the cats. I want to go there and look into the eyes of the cats so sure and smug of their superiority so that they might feel some inkling of how no matter what their station in the Catlands, they are a cat, a kitty cat.
But to visit the Catlands to become susceptible to the wiles and whims of these cats.
But who knows.
Every time I read this book, I see what may be different parts of Catland, or may be entirely different Catlands.
All of this being written, the book tells you want it's for, in as much as anything can be anything, and especially in as much as a cat be meant for anything. And to me it is very clear that Brian has known a great many cats.
Finally, and as much as this may pain our dear author, it is probably the most Ghibli inspired game thing I've ever read.
I do plan on reading all of them, and writing little blurbs on them. At least two other people have been writing blurbs on them as they go. And I know Jared also reads them when can spare time.
Like I read all the entries in Troika Tarot Jam, Troika Background Jam, Goonhack Jam, Sad Mecha Jam.
