    I've been contemplating acquiring a physical edition of Petersen's Field Guide to Lovecraftian Horrors, mostly for the art. Can't really think of anything digital I've read recently. When it comes to playing I am of course in your mentioned Traveller 2e game and am soon to be running a joke-y system. Other than that... there are certainly things on my list of things to try out one day, such as messing around with Microscope, but nothing I am actively pursuing.

    I've been looking at the FGL lately the last few days too. I can't really use it for anything (yet) but I've been thinking about filling my bookcase with physical Delta Green/Call of Cthulhu stuff lately. Helps that the Field Guide cover is gorgeous.

    Yeah my physical collection is tiny as well. Consists of three Pathfinder 2e books and Fate of Cthulhu by Evil Hat.

    My physical collection consists of only the DND Player's Handbook, which I picked up at a Target years ago. Definitely prefer PDFs for price and ease but I'm really starting to miss textbooks.

    I've had to play a retail simulator RPG lately

    I still can't decide whether cashier or manager was a worse character class to play

    If nothing else the game involved overthrowing the board of executives so that was cool

    Well, coincidentally I am about to start playing a Mongoose Traveller campaign too. What a small world.

    Since I'm in lockdown/shutdown/quarantine/home imprisonment until further notice all games I'm playing are computer games or computer-mediated games unless we count Choose your own Adventure and CYOA-like Dungeons and Dragons books (The Black Dragon by Rose Estes, if you ask).
    Computerised games, I'm playing Elvish Dynasty RPG, which I heartily recommend and is for free. And I am playing GTA: Vice City, going for 100% completion for the first time in my life. I think I can make it, and I'm playing it in character, i.e. one business at a time –currently I am supplying cars to the used car business– and trying to keep some characters alive and what-not. Then I'll be doing San Andreas and then III to end the saga. :)

    Nothing quite like reading old threads, seeing a bunch of members who are no longer active, and feeling yourself age instantly.

    At least my wild dream of having six romances simultaneously in Roll 2 Rule came to fruition?

    Some guy joined Nedim's Valkyrie as Portugal seemingly for the sole purpose of joining an international coalition against Spain (me) for trying to prevent Greece from acquiring colonies. The situation was diffused with the coalition but we remained at war and he sent no orders, so I annexed Portugal and he claimed Argentina. I don't remember quite how it got there but from that, the First Argentina was born. It's our WWW, our Off-Topic thread.

    As the ‘historical document’ I linked to proves, people speculate that Argentina might be as locatable as Poland.

    It was carved up by three Emperors? Have the prophesied Brazilian and Chilean monarchies come into being at last?

    Only the Chilean monarchy is missing, Tani-san. Brazil was a monarchy for long enough.
