update: I have been informed that Kiora calling herself Callaphe was nothing more complicated than identity theft

I like my version better

Show thread

I got excited about the flavor implications of [[Callaphe, Beloved of the Sea]]

like she's clearly based on Odysseus, so is the epithet ironic, or did Thassa have a mortal girlfriend, or

then I learned Callaphe was a name Kiora used when she was dicking around on Theros, and got disappointed

but I just realized it can work both ways. If enough people believe a thing on Theros, it becomes true. So the stories about Kiora may have created a "real" Callaphe.

"This Is Just To Say"

That the average housemate
has eaten
3 plums
per year

Which is probably
so false
and so cold

William Carlos Willaims
who lives in the icebox
and eats 10000 plums
for breakfast
is a statistical outlier
forgive me
for counting him

Go show LoadingReadyRun some love on Twitch and Twitter if you have the chance. They had a lot of people being real shitty about a product reveal they're doing at the end of the Pre-Prerelease, and I refuse to let that be a representative sample of the player base.

please read if you have an old smartwatch you don't want anymore :boost_ok: 

hey uh

if anybody has like an old smartwatch they don't want anymore

especially if it's one of the ones on this page

asteroidos.org/install/

(but even if it's not)

i could really use it

i used to have a galaxy watch that really helped me manage my ADHD and such

then my asshole abusive parents stole it

i've tried using a day planner but i just can't bring myself to use it consistently

having what basically amounts to a heads-up display for life on my wrist was just... perfect in every way

it made everything so much easier

so yeah if anyone has a spare smartwatch they could send my way i'd be eternally grateful and it would really help me get my shit together

my only criteria is it has to work with a samsung/android phone since that's what i have lol

please boost! :boost_ok:

update: I have been informed that the legendary fractal is not Standard legal

and now I'm sad I can't do Brawl fractal tribal

and honestly, the idea of needing changelings to fill out a tribal list does not appeal to me this season

Me: there's nothing for me in Strixhaven, paying attention will only bring me further heartbreak //Also me: 

Strixhaven, mechanical kvetch 

Does it bother anyone else that Learn is a rummage effect and not a loot effect?

Dresses and skirts with pockets.

Boost if you agree.

Again, worth reminding y'all that this instance is not going anywhere. If you feel similarly, I am determined to be part of your support group.

Also I'm working on a continuation of the story of @ajanionthespot's D&D game, because I love that plane and those characters and want to give them closure at the very least.

so today I learned just how off the rails Strixhaven story has gone

my relationship with Magic Story is now "why can't I quit you"

Discovered that Master of Magic has a five point (Life/White Ankh, Chaos/Red fireball, Nature/Green tree, Arcane/Blue diamond, Death/Purple skull) + Arcane (anyone can learn, artifact related).

Which seems very MtG-derived, but this game came out in 1994, and MtG only came out in 1993, so heck they must have been early fans.

Strixhaven, plagiarism 

magic.wizards.com/en/articles/

Wizards has acknowledged that the Strixhaven art for Crux of Fate includes stolen fanart, and will be suspending its contract with the artist who stole it.

Hoping this leads to compensation, and maybe work, for the actual artist.

Who called it “Haphazard Bombardment” and not “Probaballistics”

For me, the lesson of Strixhaven appears to be that I'm fundamentally ally-colored

I'm :azorius: or :selesnya: depending on the situation. So I don't really have a place on Strixhaven, and it makes sense that I'm least uncomfortable in :simic: here.

But I don't feel at home there either, because the department I'd actually be part of is :orzhov: aligned and I'd hate it.
