I've been working on a new minigame based on the card game "Once Upon A Time."

Read up on the rules here and watch this episode of Tabletop to see it in action!

I plan on playing this at the LP session on Saturday, so come along. I will help you form sentences and together we'll make a Fairy Tale(TM).

fxkill asked me how to buy ebooks off amazon.co.jp, and my answer was a little unclear so I thought I would elaborate. I did all of the following, although it is possible that some steps are unnecessary I don't know which can be safely excluded:
  1. Make an account on http://www.amazon.co.jp/. Your regular email address is fine, even if you have a US amazon account registered to it. Rikaisama/Rikaichan can help you get through this, and there is actually an option that...
Hello all,

I'm really proud to announce a new comedy series that me and @Chokkan have started. It's ingeniously titled "Cheap & Chokkan" and we will be doing small (~5minutes) skits in Japanese.

The first is called Clinic Crisis and sees Chokkan go to the clinic with a rather interesting (and unique to Minecraft) problem. This episode has the wonderful @mikipink join us too! Take a look below.

Any questions regarding...

  • しゃべっちゃダメだよ! You musn’t speak! (Shut up!)
