9 Roleplaying Games that aren’t D&D

With so many Controversies of the Coast coming to light, I figured I’d make a list of D&D alternatives.

These are listed in no particular order. I still haven’t played any of these because I have no life and some of these haven’t even printed yet, but I am excited to have a life someday, as well as all these games in my library.

Backed on Kickstarter disclosure~!

HFE, Stop Buying Books Challenge

I told myself to stop buying books until I finished at least one of the books I’m currently reading…

This post is a testament to how I majestically failed.

So let’s do a 📚 book 📚 haul 📚 for April 2023!

Highlighting The Pocket Pema Chödrön: Edited by Eden Steinberg

“Virginity is a mistake and a waste, and a courtesan is of more value to mankind than a nun.”

Antonio Beccadelli.

HFE: Well, here’s Pema Chödrön to officially say “Fuck you, Antonio. Clearly, they didn’t have quality nuns like me back in your day.”

Shadow of Chaos: Isn’t this book already a collection of highlights?

HFE: Yes. But we’re highlighting it anyway! There’s a lot of paragraphs in this book. Internetizens prefer 1-3 sentence soundbites.

Shadow of Chaos, judgy. Shadow no longer wonders why everyone’s as bratty as Faenor: I see.

HFE: I challenged myself to grab a quote from each lesson.

Shadow of Chaos: And how did that go?

HFE: Read on and find out! Instead of page numbers, I listed “chapter” numbers instead.

Shadow of Chaos picks up the list. Daer eyes lock on to the highlights: Noted.
