tl;dr: slower movement

The world doesn't need me to tell you how good this super-famous game is, but it's good. Such a strong sense of place. Also, depth in each of the places. The people have stories.

Last night went to a murder mystery LARP party that was hilariously cheesy. I <3 my friends.

There's weirdly a theme to all the things I'm doing during my break from life/work/capitalism. I think I know what I want to build next, but... I am still in the pause before rapid action stage.
