Actual Play: The Murderer Of Thomas Fell

To celebrate 2015 (happy new year!) I’m starting a new section on this website: actual play write-ups of RPG games. I got back into gaming a few months ago, GM’ing a few Call/Trail of Cthulhu games.

The Murderer of Thomas Fell

The first one is “The Murderer of Thomas Fell“, a simple, one-shot adventure that acted as an introductory adventure to my new group of players. If you’re the kind of person that reads actual-plays, or if you plan on running that adventure, you can head over here.


Gutentags for Vim

Autotags is my second “official” Vim plugin (after Lawrencium). It confirms a trend of having a terrible name (although this time for different reasons), but I’m open to changing it since it’s still early. And as that terrible name implies, this new plugin is all about automatically managing your tags.

Edit: thanks to Reddit, it was renamed to Gutentags! I edited this post after this point to use the updated name and links.

Announcing PieCrust 2

WARNING: before you go clone the new repository, be aware that, at the time of writing this, it has been tested on a glorious total of 2 machines (both my own), and 2 websites (both my own as well). So don’t use it in production, but please do give it a try and post bug reports, thanks!

This post is a short overview of the reason for going a full major version number up, and of the new things you can expect to find. There will be other posts in the following days about breaking changes and upgrade paths, and a more in-depth look at the new features.
