Cuddle Party

Everyone needs contact comfort sometimes. Not everyone has ample opportunities for this in facetime. So here is a chance for a cuddle party in cyberspace. Virtual cuddling can help people feel better.

We have a cuddle room that comes with fort cushions, fort frames, sheets for draping, and a weighted blanket. A nest full of colorful egg pillows sits in one corner. There is a basket of grooming brushes, hairbrushes, and styling combs. A bin holds textured pillows. There is a big basket of craft supplies along with art markers, coloring pages, and blank paper. The kitchen has a popcorn machine. Labels are available to mark dietary needs, recipe ingredients, and level of spiciness. Here is the bathroom, open to everyone. There is a lawn tent and an outdoor hot tub. Bathers should post a sign for nude or clothed activity. Come snuggle up!

For the upcoming St. Patrick's Day, we have:
Irish foods including Corned Beef and Cabbage, ColcannonSoda Bread with Currants , and Irish Apple Cake.
Naturally green foods including Spinach Pancakes, Pea Soup, and Mint Chocolate Green Smoothie.

Game: Evil Baby Orphanage

[personal profile] readera  recommended Evil Baby Orphanage during the fishbowl.  Basically, you track down evil historic figures and capture them as toddlers, removing them from the timestream so they don't commit atrocities.  But they're still a lot of trouble if unsupervised.

What I like most about this game is that it neatly solves the ethical dilemma of how to prevent evil people from doing evil things, without doing something else evil -- murdering babies -- yourself.  I think it says something very disturbing about society that it took this long for someone to come up with THIS idea instead of murdering babies.  0_o

I'm really tempted by this one, because it looks like an amusing addition to the collection, but it's for 3-6 players (best played with 5) which means we wouldn't have a chance to play it very often.  :/

New Crowdfunding Project: "Coyote and Crow"

Coyote and Crow is a science fantasy roleplaying game set in an alternate timeline where a meteor hit the Earth, causing calamities that changed history, an event called the Awis. (I'm guessing it hit either Europe or the ocean on that side of the planet.) Europe never invaded Turtle Island, and new abilities began to emerge: the Adahnehdi, the Gift. 700 years later, several thriving civilizations share the continent of Makasing: the Keetoowagi Republic, Haudenosaunee, Free Lands (with Cahokia as the capital), Aztec Empire, Dine Republic, and Salish Alliance. (The map is flipped, with South at the top, in an amusing bit of cartographic decolonization.) Science and spirit both form foundations of their advanced technologies. So this is a rare example of entertainment NOT based on colonial dynamics.
