Pinned toot

Hey! I'm new here, but not to Mastodon. I'm just gonna paste my bio for my :

I'm Matsuba, or Tom, a tech enthusiast and tech skeptic rolled into one. I'm gay, masc, tentatively agender, and easy to get along with 😊

I like the outdoors, conservation, art, uprooting the insidious parasites of capitalism and authoritarianism, and Dwarf Fortress.

As a reward for reading all that, here's my cat Bobby:

One of the deities of my dwarf civ is called The Lush Nuts haha hell yeah

Good morning, I made a dumb meme about a dumb thing that annoys me

Might make all my military dorfs scholars in their spare time so they have an informed worldview

feeling simultaneously femme and butch hours

Dwarf Fortress 

Unrelated, but we have a giantess and a weregoat elf in custody. I’m thinking about building a coliseum and having them fight on the next full moon

Dwarf Fortress 

Dilmus the kobold thief has returned several times to try and steal from us, but I don’t want to kill her now that I have a military. Maybe I’ll leave some trinkets out away from the fortress for the kobolds. Everyone deserves to have a hoard. This time she came with Shridisalmus, a new face.

I accidentally took a nap and I still haven’t dwarfed my fortress

I can’t wait to dwarf my fortress later

It took me a while to realise the person sitting next to me on the wall was semitransparent.
"Um. Did you use to live around here?"
"No, I wandered a long time. But this feels like where I belong."
"Oh. Must be nice."
"Don't worry, everyone finds a place they belong. Eventually."

My favorite wines are the ones that taste good and have alcohol and are for sale at my local grocer so I don’t have to go anywhere else

Dashing through the snow
I don’t know how to drive
Jesus take the reigns
And get us out alive
