It's pretty common knowledge by now that I love Fate. (well, maybe not that I love Fate; people seem to have slotted "enthusiasm" in as Cal's purview lmao.) imo it's the Best Game System Ever, and the reasons why it's the best can be boiled down to one core reason: it's all about telling a story where your characters get to be awesome.
Over on fedi earlier we were having a convo (as you do) and tossing around favorite game genre concepts and I had the BRILLIANT idea: what if you had a rhythm game, but the game was about growing and crossbreeding flowers? I mean it was a joke at first but then I realized omfg it is fucking brilliant and I want that game?!?! Making a rhythm game is extremely hard, though, so I figured, well, at least I can play around with ideas about how this game might work, if it ever existed.

I don't actually have anything to post about, but Cal wanted another post not by him in order to see how it looks on the front page with posts from multiple different categories, and he doesn't like the idea of spoofing any of our labels for testing purposes on a public site, I suppose.

Finally wrote this dang blog site engine I've been threatening to make for A Bajillion Years here, let's see if I can keep up with updating something written ESPECIALLY FOR US.
