I wrote some big meta posts this week. Easterns as a Genre introduces a type of entertainment popular in Terramagne-American television and movies. They're the mirror image of Westerns: set in the same time period in Eastern cities instead of Western wilderness.

I've also been mulling over inclusivity in games, and versatility of games that could be played in different situations. I started with an exploration of Games for Blind People or Blackouts, where I mention some extant options and lament the fact that very few games like this are available in local-America. I went to sleep with that in mind, and I woke up with a headful of T-American games that are optimized in those directions. If you read Inclusive Games from Terramagne on Saturday, check it again because I added more stuff late Sunday night. Most of these could be replicated with locally available materials.

As you can see above, we've also been doing some more adventurous food -- we've got a guest this week and Samhain is coming up. I may have more to share, depending on what ingredients we find.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are three open epics. We're full until at least one of these concludes.

"Energy, Made Visible" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Shiv and has 3 new verses. Shiv really wants to keep going with the therapy questions.

"Only If It Is Embraced" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Damask. Pain's Gray deals with Ham picking on Keane.

"A Cave Swarming with Strange Forms of Life" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses. Kenzie goes to Pretty Ears for counseling.

The weather has been cool here, sometimes very windy, other times beautiful.  We got some rain.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a big flock of goldfinches, a flock of sparrows, several house finches, some dark-eyed juncos, a male and a female cardinal separately, a Bewick's wren, and three squirrels.   In bloom: salvia and sedum.  The crabapples and pears are ripe. Leaves are falling off without turning colors, although there's a little more color on a few trees.
