So, with the redesign rolled out, I wanted to toss back out the idea of the "Creation Day" at TNW. I'm going to do it to kick off the new year on January 4th. To not encourage people to hold back until then, I'd say anything submitted to the site between now and then will qualify as an entry. Voting on the items will run through the end of the month then, and the highest rated items will with THINGS.
What kind of things? I don't know yet. Gotta dig into the petty funds and see how much stuff I can offer up. I'm thinking maybe a copy of the player's guide, cypher/XP decks, stuff like that.
Anyway, consider this a "soft" announcement. I'll write up the formal information and get it post on the site shortly.

The exact moment that I stopped caring about this story was at the quote "...our belief that the Bible is His word."
Listen folks, you want to be Christian? Awesome, go be the best Christians you can be, which is to say, go be the best damned human being you can be regardless of what justification you need to be that best human being. I won't begrudge you that. You want to be a jerk to people? Fine, you can do that too, as long as you're upfront about the fact that you're a jerk. For Phil Robertson's part, I'm not really the least bit surprised that an old redneck says something you'd expect an old redneck to say. Under some circumstances, that'd be the end of it. But it isn't. Because people every day say things like "I don't judge gays, I just think it's a sin," or "I disagree with their lifestyle, but I love them just the... more »

Hey guys. Two bits of news. So for one, big site update coming over at TNW soon. Link attached. It has all the details.
The other, I'm curious how interested folks would be in a "Content Creation Day." Like, a Saturday soon where we get a bunch of people making new stuff all day - creatures, items, locations, etc. Basically a chance to bulk up some new content for the community, and maybe offer some prizes or the like for the top rated contributions from the day. Something like that.

While this might not entirely meet the weird quotient for a creature or artifact in Numenera, it's still ridiculously cool. Best quote at 5:57: "NOPE."

Working on a big redesign for my #Numenera site The Ninth World. Old theme was sort of a "it'll do for now" type of design. New one is gonna be a huge improvement. Hopefully I'll get a little teaser screenshot out tonight.

Anyone have an interest in helping me with a little artwork for a Numenera-based short story I'm working on? Even if it's just a single piece, that's fine.

I'm curious, those of you that have been playing a while now, what are your thoughts on character leveling. Specifically, generally, whatever. I'm watching my players and given the sort of linear path the tier system takes, I almost feel like they're getting crazy strong really quickly. Anyone else gotten that impression?

So I just read through Viral Transmissions, and we played the first half today. Has anyone else gone through that and felt a distinctly "The Dark Tower" influence to the storyline. I almost wanted to force the group through a riddle contest just because.

Anyone know of a service that provides something in the way of a feed, Twitter, something that alerts you when Project X releases a new version? Where Project X can be any number of tools/products/platforms you use, like Wordpress, jQuery, 960gs, Drupal, etc.
I'm finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with some packages without manually going to their site once and a while. Some have blogs, but they tend to be too noisy for that specific task. Some have email lists, but same issue, they're used for much more than version releases. I'm thinking a place where you can get a single feed that just keeps you up to date when something you use releases a new version.

Hey all, a question was posed to me about the possibility of starting up an IRC channel for Numenera via TNW. I'm certainly willing to help with that (and obviously anyone can go set up an IRC channel with or without help) and promote it via the site. The question for you all is: would you use it? Like, regularly? The result would be me setting up a page on the site with an IRC interface built in for folks not familiar with it, and those of you that are could obviously just use the client of your choice.
I use IRC daily for work anyway, so I'm always there, and I've used it with other projects in the past. One thing I've learned is that a "good" channel needs a few good folks willing to actually lurk and use it, so when folks pop in to ask questions and such, they aren't met with silence.
What I think might be need to help the idea, is if someone was... more »

Hey guys, question of preference for you. I'm working on a short story that has continued well beyond my original intent in length and scope. As a result, rather than just slapping it on a web page, I'm going to give it away as an eBook. I'm writing it as an ePub right now.
My question is, would ePub fulfill most folks needs? Or do you need other formats? Mobi, pdf, azw, opf, or others?
In particular, +Andrew Montgomery-Hurrell, would a specific format help with integration into your project?

A gentle reminder from your friendly neighborhood photography enthusiast: If you are out in public, and I can see you, I can take your picture, no permission required. You can be walking down the sidewalk, in your car, or on your porch. Unless you are secluded in such a way as to establish a reasonable expectation of privacy, then you can be photographed. While it annoys the hell out of them, it's the same principle for why paparazzi can mob famous people. I apologize if you don't like having your picture taken, and if you approach and ask nicely, I might even get rid of it for you. If you approach me rudely about it, however, I'll politely instruct you to go pound sand, and I won't feel at all bad about it.

Hey folks, been a while since I've shared an update about The Ninth World. FWIW, if you're interested in the more mundane and smaller progress updates, feel free to follow @TheNinthWorld on Twitter. I tend to share the smaller stuff there (plus plenty of other stuff).
Anyway, I still have a lot of stuff on the to-do list. One thing that's about to drop imminently, is a bunch of mutations that have been submitted - I'm just needing to wrap up the page for it. I hope everyone will swing by and drop some votes once they're live.
The big feature release this week is that if you sign up for an account and have done content submissions, you can now get easy access to those submissions under the user menu in the top right corner, on the "Manage Submissions" page. You can see your content there, get a quick view of ratings, and quick edit links. Ultimately, this... more »

Does anyone recall which page the rules for group-based combat are on? (i.e. 1 PC vs Many NPCs) I'm having a hell of a time tracking down where it was, but I'm sure I read it before. Index leaves me a bit wanting.

Went to the Wal-Mart website to look up an item my physical therapist recommended and was greeted with this as soon as I hit the page – the web marketing equivalent to walking up to a random girl at a bar and asking for her phone number. I think I’ll just go order it from Amazon instead.

As I've GM'd a few sessions now, I've ran into a couple problems that I thought were worth sharing, and how I fixed them. I flesh this out into more of an article later, but wanted to share the advice in the short term:
Players that are money driven: This is mostly an issue from player other games where players are simply used to getting hired to do a job for X money, and trying to get as much over X as possible. It's tough when money is a motivator, switching that mentality over. It still technically is tough, but I've been trying to stress how little shins are really used. NPCs can perhaps glimpse an oddity sticking out of a pocket and try to haggle for that instead. Folks can offer needed services in exchange for help. And you might just need to have a sit down and explain how a treasure trove of shins might be great in one region, but totally worthless to another. Think... more »

Hey all. I revamped the code underlying the content submission over at The Ninth World. Field labels are better in a few places, categories actually work now where they are used, and there's a proper thank you page in place now.
For those that have submitted stuff, the next thing I'm working on is enabling the ability to edit the things you've created.
2013-10-01 22:01:25 (1 comments, 0 reshares, 3 +1s)
Hey all, now that work on The Ninth World is progressing nicely, I thought I'd open up the feature suggestion pool to everyone. I've seeded some ideas into Google Moderator that you can vote on, or add your own ideas. This won't be the sole factor in determining what does and doesn't get done on the site, but it'll certainly help me build the direction the right way. Feel free to suggest your own ideas - the sky's the limit. It might be that your idea is technically unfeasible, but maybe there's a variation on it I could make happen, for instance. Vote on anything you like the most.
2013-09-30 15:42:46 (3 comments, 1 reshares, 6 +1s)
Don't miss +Ryan Chaddock's latest post looking at how economics factors into the Ninth World. This is also a really great topic for discussion I think, so be sure to join in on the comments sections and let us know what you think. For instance, how are you breaking PC's of the habit of trying to extort as much money as possible out of someone that's trying to hire them? How about haggling with vendors over an item that has a price in the book (e.g. "I've got these two neat oddities I'll give you for that heavy armor...")?

Just ran our group through Seedship today (playing with two of our group remote over Hangout). I gotta say, for a book mission, that was pretty intense. The Automaton followed by a travonis up was some pretty seriously dangerous stuff for a starter adventure. They were, however, triumphant. It makes me wonder how this sort of stuff will scale over time though.

One mismeasurement later and we have a stand up workstation! Need to add about two more inches of height to the top keyboard space too. No big deal with that though. This should hold me over until I get a proper desk anyway.
2013-09-27 15:18:06 (0 comments, 0 reshares, 0 +1s)
To answer the question of how to convert to a standing desk without needing to tear apart my office at the moment, I present to you the $25 solution - a topper for my existing desk. I'll leave a space so the keyboard and mouse can sit on the original top, or go up a level depending on if I want to sit or stand, and tilt monitors accordingly. Not a long term solution, but will take care of things for now at least.

So, while I'm still knee deep in code for TheNinthWorld.com, we're not letting that stop us from doing real work. And that is to say, +Ryan Chaddock is already busy getting started writing. This constitutes the first "official" article release for the site. So while other parts of the site are still works in progress, you're fully invited to come read!

So, I'm gonna run our first game of Numenera tomorrow, we're just gonna test run the canned book adventures. Anyone have any advice you'd like to share? (note, this would also make for a great article for TheNinthWorld.com, if anyone wants to write it :D )

Anyone that's played Paranoia before, don't you feel like finding Oddities and figuring out their effects is a lot like being given a random gizmo from R&D and being told to go "test" it?
2013-09-19 04:39:07 (17 comments, 0 reshares, 2 +1s)
Hey all, thought you might like to see some of the progress. Thanks to the kindness of +Ryan Chaddock, I've built out the first "complete" section, in this case Oddities. Granted, that's about the simplest one too, but hey, there's a crap ton of them there. Voting should work as well. In theory, you should be able to register for an account to and use the submission forms if you like, as well - though I make no promises on how stable that functionality is yet.

When I read articles that preach things like "content first" or "mobile first" approaches to web design, it makes me feel like how it'd be if football teams took a "kicker first" or "linebacker first" approach to winning games. Yes, kickers are important, and they win games, but they are just one part of the team, a whole team, dedicated to winning. The team might decide to do a West Coast offense paired with a 3-4 defense, but they stay flexible to what challenges the day presents within that framework, and they remain focused on the goal for the sake of the goal. And sure, there are exceptions. If you have Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, you can probably afford to say you're a "quarterback first" team, but that's a very rare situation dictated by the value of the pieces in place.
Web teams need to keep that in mind and remember it when... more »

Played first game of Lords of Waterdeep yesterday. Good game. Totally got beat. Definitely feels like the sort of game that gets cut-throat if you play with 4/5 people. The best part was that it was easy to just pick up and play. Not a lot of need for rule checking, but still felt like you could get deep into the strategy of it all if you really wanted to.
Also think I finally cracked the code for how to beat Pandemic once in a while. Or at least, not lose depressingly every single time. Apparently there's a new expansion out too I need to look up.

Hey all. Had a question that seemed fitting for this group. Back during the Kickstarter, I went and snagged theninthworld.com, because hey why not. Now that people are getting their books, it would seem like the appropriate time to start thinking about what to actually do with it.
That's where you come in. What do you think I should do with it? "Nothing" is a valid answer. I know there's already this community, and the Ninth World Hub (blegh, Ning). I don't want to purposefully fragment the community farther unless folks aren't happy with the solutions thus far. But I'd certainly love to facilitate centralizing community generated content, or give folks tools to create and share adventures, or things like that.
Now, I'm a webdev by trade, so making a useful site is something I can do, given the needs of the community. So let me know your thoughts and... more »

This is crazy expensive, but it's also almost perfectly what I want for a sit-stand convertible workspace. Anyone have any other recommendations I should look at short of trying to build something completely custom?
