A couple of weeks back, I was too tired to play a “real” videogame so was looking for something light to throw up on YouTube while I went and did some mindless tree-chopping in FFXIV.

This is what I ended up watching.

It did, uh. Not quite have the desired effect . . .

Tl;dr in 1990 the Secret Service raided the home of a tabletop RPG creator because they were convinced GURPS Cyberpunk was, like. An actual hacking manual. Which on the face of it is very funny, but as Steve Jackson points out, the damage it did to the business forced me to lay off half my staff, which will never be funny.

Inside the surprisingly high-stake world of videogame cheat creation.

Levelling IDC (Interior Decorator).

My FFXIV FC room! I wanted to do something in-line with the themes of the FC—ivory roses, mandragoras, and purple—and got two out of three.

There’s still a few plants and things I’d probably want to tweak but . . . good enough for now!

This is also the second build; the first one just . . . wasn’t working out for me the way I wanted, but I took some screenshots to preserve it for posterity:
