@craigmaloney There are copies of Windows 10 with bootable media if one doesn't buy the digital download.
If this is a physical media copy and it won't boot it might be either because the optical drive can't read dual-layer discs (anything larger than 4 GB is dual-layer) or the disc's boot loader might be UEFI only and the computer doesn't have UEFI boot enabled for the optical drive.
@kensanata Well that solves that - it looks like Ulisses is offering a PDF version of the original on DTRPG as PWYW.
@kensanata when I used my iPad pretty heavily I used GoodReader. My iPad is old now so I can't run the latest version but it used to be a really solid program to manage my PDF library and allow markups and such.
@PresGas @kensanata Thanks for mentioning this.
@kensanata I love your commentary, and the house rules you have made for your house rules. I laughed out loud at a couple of things (particularly the "how much can you carry" discussion), and really enjoy your podcast.
I find myself entrenched now with 5E in organized play as that's what's popular, but your discussion of your rules and your thoughts reminds me why I started getting involved in the OSR in the first place. Thanks for the podcast!
I'm trying to find a relatively easy to work with TUI for perl, python, or ruby. I want to write a program to help me manage the 5E adventure league games that I'm running now.
The main feature I'm looking for is an easily accessible screen. I've found a couple in python that look promising but I'd like to hear from folks what they have used and like.
#rpg #python #perl #ruby
@kensanata As a new 5e player who's essentially doing just this with a cleric, it doesn't seem to be that much of a problem at low level, but it does constrain your choices to whatever's in the basic rules. The roles in the Basic rules don't seem to be restricted themselves, there's just not much variety.
I ended up buying the Player's Guide, but haven't purchased any of the splat books (I'm playing in an Adventure League game and I'd only be allowed to use one at any rate).
you know, I love mastodon but i am kind of annoyed w/ the upgrade process atm. Had to use ruby 2.5.1 because while rbenv installed 2.5.3 it didn't build bundle, and then I spent like 20 minutes trying to find the .ruby-version file after passing over it twice in the directory listing.
Finally, asset compilation failed with the message 'Compilation Failed: ' and no reason given.
It's not like I'm running it on some obscure platform - it's fucking Ubuntu and a non-docker install.
I figure I'll give this a shot - maybe it'll turn into something workable, and if not *shrugs*
@nono I look at player experience and what play style they think they like,and compare that to ease of initial entry + ability to allow the player to increase the complexity of their character if they choose. Some systems excel at the former and some at the latter. There aren’t a tremendous amount that allow both without extensive customization/house rules.
@Halfjack Great post!

This Mastodon instance is primarily RPG-focused. Like everything in life, however, there aren't always clear-cut lines and things tend to get blurred. Weapon vs. AC (this server) is currently invite-only.
