A further gathering of shiny things from the far corners of the internet. Previous list found here. Inspired by weaver.skepti.ch End of Week links.

Trouble with inspiration for an NPC voice? Try an IDEA! The International Dialects of English site.

Great idea on better differentiating monsters using keywords in stat blocks to inform behaviour.

Neat thoughts on social intrigue - Wierd Wonderful Worlds.

An interesting piece on how throwing more resources at problems may not solve them any quicker.

Good discussion on approachability in TTRPGs - how to give people a sense of what they are getting into to make them more likely to take the leap into a new game.

Interesting variant experience system that front-grounds damage taken and received to reward risk taken.

A class - for Mageblade but good inspiration for other - The Knights of Luilekkerland, also known as Big Rock Candy Mountain.

A list of fairies, elves and little people from around the world if you need to mix up your fey.

Should you have too many of those troublesome coins, Shadows of Esteren is up for pre-order.
