the players continued their way through the kobold dungeon, negotiated a ceasefire with them and got tasked by another NPC to retrieve a roudy teenager from the kobold lair. (it was a young gold dragon in their rebelious phase trying to disguise himself as red dragon)

they stumbled into a deeper part of the dungeon that had been infested by a necromancer. A player almost died to a bodak (fun fact: if a bodak downs you with it's gaze and you're in it's aura, you fail a death save each round due to the aura. So if you roll a nat 1, you're instantly dead)

so after that, they finally met the necromancer and instantly stabbed him to death.

turns out that was the part necessary to complete the lich transformation.

luckily the lich wasn't very good at saving against tasha's hideous laughter and failed enough saves that the rest of the party could bash down the remaining health.

also Death with capital D showed up to collect the phylactery.

the party decides to enter a kobold lair of large size

the party stepped on nails, got slingshotted in the face, blown up, almost drowned by a mimic, imprisoned by kobolds, almost burried under a bunch of rocks, had a rust monster dropped on them and a toilet was detonated with a fireball in their vicinity

they're running out of soap, resources, self-control and pride and we're like 1/3rd into the dungeon

@Celestia it's a social media network primarly aimed and used by far-right people. Not a fairly pleasant place in my opinion.

@Celestia if you find some emotes that work, that's fine too, as long as I can get a file to upload to the server

ideally something that works at 32x32 pixels or 16x16 pixels

@Celestia how rude indeed!!!!

I can add Celestia emotes, yes. Just PM me some.

@Celestia correct, the higher the voltage the better

(stay safe obviously)

the party finds the ancient artifact they are supposed to retrieve for the questgiver

the adventure mentions that if anyone would hit the artifact as hard as they can, some monsters jump out

I think, "yeah, nobody is gonna do that, that sounds dumb"

fighter: "I punch the artifact as hard as I can"

proceed to the party fighting a terminator golem (a golem wearing a human) and the fighter almost dying in one hit BECAUSE IT'S A FRICKING GOLEM AND THEY'RE LEVEL 6

GPG still supports SHA1, which got another attack today (sha-mbles.github.io/, 45k$ in AWS costs), yet the dev team doesn't seem to be able to get their butts into gear and deprecate old things.

I recommend switching to alternative tools; signify/minisign for signatures, age (github.com/FiloSottile/age) for encryption, and just don't use email or signed git commits, just sign a tarball or tags.

Linux will remove blocking from /dev/random (after initial block on boot), GPG is being called out for being shit

Here is my tribute to all the great cartoons we've gotten this decade.

Whether they made us laugh, pumped us up, or broke our hearts, it's an era of animation that we'll never forget, and it will go down in history as one of the best...
Thank you all for coming along with me

I'm recovering data from a dead µSD card using my arduino

removed the voltage regulator so I could have it all run on 3.3V and using the SPI interface which I learned SD cards implement for some weird reason

once I'm done and perfected my tools I might release that, it's interesting stuff and could help other people, but I'll wait until I get a proper breakout board and don't have to rely on the power supply being stable enough

returned from vacation with fam, was quite awesome

my feet hurt though, walked them bloody

the amazing thing about the new star wars movie is that...
