@Alonealastalovedalongthe examples:

- the respect of your mother, the Lord Patrician; - enough land to sustain yourself; - any, and I mean any semblance, of enduring organization in the Waters-toward-Sea Quarter slums; - food on the table every day; - the proof to Miran’s Fourth Hypothesis of Magic Unification; - children, which you cannot sire.

@Alonealastalovedalongthe what is the one thing the character gets mad or sad about when they have to confront the fact that they don’t have it, don’t know it, haven’t made it or in general that it should be there but it isn’t? What would get under their skin like this?

Advanced character creation:

Choose a faction, a name, and three positive qualities your character has. Then answer:

- What does the character think they want?

- What would hurt the character’s feelings, if someone maliciously remarked about its absence?

- What would the character admit to themself if stuck in painful contemplation of their life? What would they perhaps never admit, even then?

One of my favorite things about human-run social media is that if your feed goes quiet, it lets it be quiet instead of dropping in stuff from a bunch of strangers it thinks you might like.

Or maybe that “hey follow this rando” behavior is a thing I loathe about corporate-run social media.

"In California's Wine Country, undocumented grape pickers forced to work in fire evacuation zones"

"As wildfire smoke billowed into the wine-producing region of Sonoma County, California, workers continued harvesting grapes, day and night. Even in evacuation zones, where the safety threat from flames was severe enough for officials to ask residents to leave the area, the county agriculture commissioner invited workers to continue laboring in the fields, doling out evacuation-area access passes to dozens of agricultural producers."
