## Learnings
I think the main benefit to recutils is having a human readable, plain-text database that you can edit.
Querying and inserting is okay.
I don't have a use case for using Joins on records, but the fact that you can means that recutils is pretty robust
I think that recutils could be a really good format for easily tracking data in version control. It is a good "source" database that can then be exported to csv and SQL. `csvkit`, e.g., can output straight to sqlite

+**Update 2022-02-11**: this game fizzled out. The second ADF Troika game I've played to do so! Too bad. I enjoyed the brief time that I got to create some McDonalds cosmology. Just for fun, here's Gliftwirp expositing a little bit.
+> Gliftwirp bites into a burger that he swiped from somewhere, closes his eyes, and sighs happily.
+> "How grand that your falcon-headed god gave you his own sight as a boon! How grand that you can even know your god!"
+> "Sadly, my god grants no boons and answers no prayers. It is a long story with which I shall not tire you okay fine if you insist."
+> He settles in to tell a story.
+> "Long, long ago, my god (whose name I cannot say for reasons you will soon understand) was a member of high stature in the Court of the God King. And his best friend and closest confidante was the court jester, Rhahn Ald. But their friendship would end in tragedy! Just listen and you will know why."
+> "You see, Rhahn Ald, the trickster, had quietly and discreetly been stealing magical items from the king's coffers, slowly, over the years, accumulating glamour that he used to increase his influence in the court, to weaken the God King's mind and make him reliant on him. My god (whose name I cannot say) eventually found out and threatened to expose Rhahn Ald. So the mad jester framed his best friend, and easily convinced the God King of his guilt."
+> "So as punishment, everything was stolen from my god, including his name. The Court of the God King will only allow him to be referred to as the Evil Nemesis. (Bit dramatic don't you think?) He also had his handsome physique stolen from him: he now inhabits the form of a large, four-armed, purple worm. And he had his home and all his land stolen from him: he now resides in a damp cave. Most cruelly, he had his intellect stolen: he remains just barely aware of what he used to be, of what was taken from him. But his eloquence is gone. He is incapable of forming the words he needs to defend himself, or gather followers to his cause."
+> Gliftwirp sighs sadly and nods. "My god was cursed and exiled because of the evil trickster god Rhahn Ald."
+> "And in retribution for his wrongful suffering, his followers turn to holy acquisitions and righteous theft. Just as everything was taken from our beloved Evil Nemesis, so do we take and redistribute. And so we shall until he is redeemed and restored to his rightful place."
+> Gliftwirp continues quietly to himself, under his breath, "Robble robble, Amen," and takes another bite of his hamburger.
+> "I truly am happy that you get to know your falcon-headed god, Kiara. It is a gift I hope you won't take for granted!"

beautiful craptastic chaos at galgoricon 2021! Galgorian and Spooky Rusty ran a two table game with players constantly teleporting between the two locations before joining up at the final encounter. It was bonkers and fun. Big cast of characters, almost 12 players

Zig's first time DM-ing! A series of oneshots on a mysterious island. Getting to play with Alex again is fun. The characters escalate from session to session from level 3 to 6 to 9 etc. Have played two so far. Having a lot of fun playing and getting to make new characters all the time.

super good! ran for z and j. the premise was 'Cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie for OSE' and I think they pulled it off really well. Players arranged for the best ending possible: get /everybody/ to meet up at the docks: dinaz and lucretia to steal the ship (desperate move by L to get on the naughty list) both bounty hunters, yvette and midge, to capture dinaz and lucretia + bitter; winter and loss there, snow to arrange a romantic sleigh ride with Z and Loss... it was a beautiful chaotic mess that was super fun. five thumbs up.

Radsauce. Ran it with Carter, Hilary, and Jimmy. It went a bit over an hour, and the we finished it up in a bit over an hour the next day. Not positive I got all the rolls right, but the players seemed to have fun. I got a couple *wtf* moments out of them which seems like a success. I think there might need to be something said upfront about how the point of some of the weirdness is just that it is weird. That is, not every theme is a clue to the answer to the mystery. (Speaking directly of the puppet theme in this adventure.) There was interest in continuing with the othe mysteries in the text, so we might start that next week

<p>gonna start a coin-flipping game with tibbius. gonna play a witchy person.</p>
<p><strong>Update 2022-02-11</strong>: Moving this to dead. The story was really good. The system was surprisingly good. The gimmick is that you a special that you can invoke and it just happens. And then you flip a coin. Heads = you can continue to use your special. Tails = special is burned until recharged. Made for smoe really fun gameplay.</p>

<p>pbp on rpg.net with tibbius. Playing former child actor Sender, who is a blade for hire who just wants to retire and be a mushroom farmer, who is also haunted by the ghost of his dead twin brother who he absorbed in the womb, and who is also followed around by small woodland animals like a disney princess.</p>

<p><strong>Update 2022-02-11</strong>: Moving this to dead. Never could remember to go check rpg.net for updates. One of our players dropped, and it became not enough to keep the story going. sad! First time playing Risus, a game Ive long wanted to try. Dont feel like I ever got to really get a handle on it.</p>

<p>Another more different ADF! Born of the APF server, but on another new server with Kunailby. Playing Gliftwirp, a sarong-fu master who is also basically the hamburglar</p>
<p><strong>Update 2022-02-11</strong>: this game fizzled out. The second ADF Troika game Ive played to do so! Too bad. I enjoyed the brief time that I got to create some McDonalds cosmology. Just for fun, heres Gliftwirp expositing a little bit.</p>
<blockquote>
<p>Gliftwirp bites into a burger that he swiped from somewhere, closes his eyes, and sighs happily.</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“How grand that your falcon-headed god gave you his own sight as a boon! How grand that you can even know your god!”</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“Sadly, my god grants no boons and answers no prayers. It is a long story with which I shall not tire you okay fine if you insist.”</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>He settles in to tell a story.</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“Long, long ago, my god (whose name I cannot say for reasons you will soon understand) was a member of high stature in the Court of the God King. And his best friend and closest confidante was the court jester, Rhahn Ald. But their friendship would end in tragedy! Just listen and you will know why.”</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“You see, Rhahn Ald, the trickster, had quietly and discreetly been stealing magical items from the kings coffers, slowly, over the years, accumulating glamour that he used to increase his influence in the court, to weaken the God Kings mind and make him reliant on him. My god (whose name I cannot say) eventually found out and threatened to expose Rhahn Ald. So the mad jester framed his best friend, and easily convinced the God King of his guilt.”</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“So as punishment, everything was stolen from my god, including his name. The Court of the God King will only allow him to be referred to as the Evil Nemesis. (Bit dramatic dont you think?) He also had his handsome physique stolen from him: he now inhabits the form of a large, four-armed, purple worm. And he had his home and all his land stolen from him: he now resides in a damp cave. Most cruelly, he had his intellect stolen: he remains just barely aware of what he used to be, of what was taken from him. But his eloquence is gone. He is incapable of forming the words he needs to defend himself, or gather followers to his cause.”</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>Gliftwirp sighs sadly and nods. “My god was cursed and exiled because of the evil trickster god Rhahn Ald.”</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“And in retribution for his wrongful suffering, his followers turn to holy acquisitions and righteous theft. Just as everything was taken from our beloved Evil Nemesis, so do we take and redistribute. And so we shall until he is redeemed and restored to his rightful place.”</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>Gliftwirp continues quietly to himself, under his breath, “Robble robble, Amen,” and takes another bite of his hamburger.</p>
</blockquote>
<blockquote>
<p>“I truly am happy that you get to know your falcon-headed god, Kiara. It is a gift I hope you wont take for granted!”</p>
</blockquote>

<p>Heres how it went!</p>
<p>okay so first of all this is a historic game because after years of inviting her to join me in my hobby, this is the first time baba agreed and actually joined. bittersweet: she did not have fun.</p>
<p>nor did i, to be honest. this was a very challenging game to run. i felt stressed out and frustrated the whole time. the clues were super vauge. it was hard to understand a new system, and the mystery, and also stay on top of helping people play their character. There was also a bunch of the game that I should have just thrown out because it was not applicable/appropriate for a one-shot. Also all of the clues are objects. Theres no way to have a clue come up in conversation without the person running away so they could find an object, or somehow describing the object for some reason.</p>
<p>I had two players (pete and ari) who had never played a game before, pete was kind of lost. i should have thrown out abilities and had a straight 2d6 roll.</p>
<p>that said, it was a great group. a real convergence of spheres.</p>
<p>I dont know, id run it again. I imagine ill feel more prepared the second time around. the players (except for pete) all seemed to have fun</p>

<p>Heres how it went!</p>
<p>Kyle ran us a game of Cthulhu Dark! Played with Josh and Mike and wendi. Investigate Garrets Ranch in Fate, Texas. Everybody escaped intact and alive. A very simple but very flexible game. I liked how you can boost your roll with a cost with the insight die. And we did a good job of using the failure die once or twice. Occupation is really important and you can kind of cripple yourself if you pick something off like “uber driver” like josh did. Nobody took advantage of infinite rolls, and I think somebody suppressed insight only once. Which is all to say that for a rules light game, you kind of have to remember a lot. Anyway, it was fun!</p>

<p>Fun pick-up game from Melsonia discord. The game hilariously involves googling random Florida Man stories to create NPCs and encounters throughout the game.

<p>One of the most tragic stories of 2021 both in-game and without. Epic setting dreamed up by GreyWarden, and then when they abondened the game, me and fraidy_cat and jade decided to keep playing by ourselves using a GM emulator. It was a great experiment in collaboration and self-government, and it was really going places. We have 22 pages of original setting content in a google doc. But then a huge in-game encounter killed our NPC leader and things never really recovered from that. Currently on infinite hiatus.</p>

### Intro
I think the main benefit to recutils is having a human readable, plain-text database that you can edit.
Querying and inserting is okay.
I don't have a use case for using Joins on records, but the fact that you can means that recutils is pretty robust
I think that recutils could be a really good format for easily tracking data in version control. It is a good "source" database that can then be exported to csv and SQL. `csvkit`, e.g., can output straight to sqlite
### Sorting
Fri, 11 Feb 2022 14:26:47 -0700
Okay check this out.
You can sort your fields at query time by passing the `--sort Key` option to recsel. And you can set a `%sort Key` default in the recfile itself. *But sorting can only ever be ascending*. Says so right in the docs.
> The sorting is always done in ascending order...
>
> <https://www.gnu.org/software/recutils/manual/Sorted-Output.html#Sorted-Output>
I want a blog-style list of records with the most recently updated at the top, so I need my records in descending order. I settled on this craptastic workaround of querying my records sorted by `Updated`, convert to CSV, convert to JSON, `jq 'reverse'`, convert back to CSV, and convert back to recfiles. (I only bother going all the way back to recfiles because I already wrote the recfile template I want to use to generate markdown.)
Here are the relevant snippets from my justfile:
```
# featuring descending sort!
markdown:
recsel -S Updated {{database}} | rec2csv | csvjson | jq 'reverse | map(.Notes |= gsub("\n"; "\n\n"))' | in2csv -f json | csv2rec | recfmt -f templates/markdown.template
# html out
html:
just markdown | pandoc -t html --toc -s --metadata title="Games!" -B templates/before.html -A templates/after.html -o dist/games.html
```
This seems like a huge oversight of `recsel`. I can't imagine I'm the only person who wants control over the order of their sort!
