The Fediverse has a video platform called PeerTube, you can follow PeerTube accounts from Mastodon and from podcast apps too. If you want to publish your videos on PeerTube, I've done an extensive guide for this at: ➡️ https://fedi.tips/how-to-publish-videos-and-audio-on-peertube Hopefully this guide answers questions video makers might have. Let me know if there's stuff that isn't answered. #FediTips #PeerTube #Fediverse

I am somewhat obsessed with playing cards (and not just this kind...). Here's a (small, but representative) example: https://imgur.com/a/IKjBAkj

@zhang.dianli@pixelfed.social Beautiful cards.

It has been an age and a half since I uploaded any kind of #PlayingCards, #Chinese or #western. So I decided to share a set I picked up yesterday. The cards are a routine #poker deck: 52 cards (French suit), two jokers (black and red), and a "certificate of authenticity". (I'll get into that later.) The cards are made of PVC with a light texture which makes them waterproof and nearly indestructible. The ace of spades is a very colourful design, while the face cards are the very standard images we've all come to know and love. The jokers are simple illustrations of a seated fool with an owl(?) perched on his feet, differentiated by size (black is smaller) and by the colour of the text that reads "JOKER". PVC cards, especially the textured ones, are quite slippy in comparison to those made from card stock, so it takes a couple of minutes to acclimatize when you're unfamiliar with them. (Be prepared to have them spray out of your hands when shuffling until you get the feel.) So what's the "certificate of authenticity" about? The cards are made with gold foil inside the PVC, and apparently, despite gold foil being cheap like borscht (ask any crafter friends!) there's apparently enough fraud around this that they actually have a report number you can look up on a government cite to check the bona fides. The card back is termed "彩金 游龙戏凤" (cǎi jīn yóu lóng xì fèng) on the site I bought the cards from, but I'm not actually sure what it means. The first two characters can mean a lot of things but the literal translation is likely best: "coloured gold". The rest is ... less clear. Literally it means "swimming Dragon playing with Phoenix" but ... ugh. This is probably some weird idiom or other. [A quick hit on Baike](https://baike.baidu.com/item/游龙戏凤/17640) says that it's an idiom with a historical allusion, but isn't clear on what its intended meaning is. [There are a lot of entries](https://baike.baidu.com/item/游龙戏凤/11102037) however, too many to look up.

A collapsible #DiceTray (mostly, but not only, for #TTRPG use) I got. Normally I use my integrated dice box, dice tower, dice tray combo, but it's not always convenient outside of formal situations (like a game group gathering). This dice tray is convenient to slip into a backpack or such, taking up almost no space and weighing next to nothing and goes well with the small dice pouch I always have on my person somewhere.

Damage types and elements in RPGs are made up, we need to rid ourselves of the boring standbys like “slashing” and “fire,” how about taking “spooky” or “cool” or “spicy” damage

Fuck it, you all take 2d6 points of umami damage

Damage types based on the seven deadly sins. 3d10 greed damage. Pride resistance.

When you take pride damage you gotta make a save or be knocked prone because pride goeth before a fall

Just gonna go ahead and reblog this before we get tagged
