πŸ‘‹ I'm Ricardo. I live in sunny .

:crt_w_green_lines: I live in an ivory tower of abstractions, and use arcane sigils to coerce poisoned sand and lightning to do my bidding. This sometimes works as intended.

πŸ¦€ I'm a fan, been following it since before the 1.0 release, and it keeps getting better.

:blobcat: have a place in my heart. I'm a simple man, I see cat photos, I boost 'em.

πŸ“š Reading is the best thing (after , of course)

is a fascinating subject, regardless if the subject is Ancient Rome, Mesopotamia or, most mysterious of all, the Late Bronze Age collapse (it was not just the Sea Peoples, okay?)

Ann Leckie, N.K. Jemisin, and Ursula K. LeGuin are gifts to humanity, and you owe yourself reading their delightful and works!


Could you help me with some pain relief for my chronic pain, plz?

Meds don't really work in this case. :\

I'm a 34 disabled year old unemployed person with Multiple Sclerosis among other things, and my PayPal is temporarily (I hope!) blocked, so I added some things to my wishlists that would help me regarding my back and legs:



Thank you for your help (boosts included, ofc, as they count, a LOT!). :blobheart:

skeletons weigh 10% of the original bodymass which means liches need to wear all that jewelry to avoid being blown away by strong winds or air magic. It acts as ballast. and it's also why liches levitate all the time. They can afford the mana cost now both due to lichdom and being mostly bone and jewelry.

Open, shut them
Give a little clap

Open shut them,

"Can you throw the bones for me?" the young woman asked.
"What is your concern?" said the witch.
"I don't fit."
A common concern among the young, but... The witch threw the bones and read them. "You must change, to stay who you are."
"Who I... " The young man blinked. "Oh!"

Today is my B-day. It'd mean the world to me if you could help me with this - re: health & monies 

The demons stared at the gurgling bundle swaddled in a sacrificial robe, among the standard offerings of goats and wine.

"What are we supposed to do with it?"

"Eat it?" one guessed.

"It's a baby!"

"Accept it as payment?"

"That's awful! We have standards!"

"Can't return it, it'll be sent back, or worse," grunted the oldest, who understood humans better, "Guess we're parents now."

"Well... We've been worse for less," the first accepted.

"Pronoia, your... well they SAY they're your parents, but--"

"Three of them?"


"Describe them."

"I... can't?"

"That's them."

The young woman snapped her briefcase shut and made her way down to the lobby.

The people there were giving three tall figures a wide berth. This was normal. Aside from not being able to define a binary gender for them, they gave the impression of having horns.

And claws.

And a primal danger.

We can save another man’s life. We can do so over a meal, a game of cards, in between episodes of our favourite anime, over voice chat playing video games. And we can do so by being better at seeing when the men around us need someone.

That someone can be you.
It IS you.

It’s #InternationalMensDay.

Today, I want men to think about how they comfort each other when they learn that one of their bredrens is going through something. Often, what some men in our lives truly need is another man to talk things through with.

Dear new mastodon users: a lot of us are wary of spam and/or data collection bots so please make at least one post before following anyone thanks

Here's a board I made late last year. I titled this one "an enormous army stands against my style in vain"
