"In a time when grimdark is a thing in fantasy not enough characters die of shitting themselves to death."

"Can we spend our Inspiration to get [the 5 year old kobold] a unicorn?"

Made a twitter thread from last week into a blog post.

Those Who Fight (lords, ladies, knights, squires, kings and queens) Those Who Pray (nuns, priests, monks, cardinals and popes) are monsters, like right out of the Monster Manual and Fiend Folio. Dungeons are knightly manors, churches, cathedrals, castles and even burial mounds and tombs.

"Nazis don't go to Valhalla."

Latest episode of Sole's "Solecast" podcast includes a wonderful interview with trans anarchist sf author Margaret Killjoy & a reading of her antifascist SF/fantasy story, "The Northern Front."

Solecast doesn't have transcripts, unfortunately, but the story is available for $1 from Killjoy's Patreon.

this should be the first page of a communist coloring book imo

Undead are cautionary tales. Monsters preach that undead are the inevitable disease that occurs when you give humans too much power. Humans are too delicate to rule and so they seek out powers they cannot control in order to hold on to power.

Hm, this will likely be a blog post sooner rather than later...

Starting the game:

Name the monsters who:

rules this duchy
wears the the crown and who rules over the dukes
enforces laws and collects taxes
puts down rebellions
sees over local religious services, sermons blessings and marriages
executes villains

Or start the game in a fort on the edge of civilization, a democratic human enclave struggling to survive...

Adventurers are called villains, a throwback to when the word meant low-born...

"villain, n." OED Online, Oxford University Press, July 2018,…. Accessed 8 September 2018.

Yes, human merchants still pay big money to marry into monstrous noble families in hopes that their children can have monsters/noble blood.

Monster/Noble's coats of arms are symbols or stylized humans giving them what they want.

It re-contextualizes half-orcs, fer sure.

Elves? Gnomes? Dwarves? Monsters see them as human subjects with enough of a drop of interesting monster blood to make them interesting.

All facets of Those Who Fight (nobles, knights, crowns) and Those Who Pray (nuns, monks, priests, popes) in the medieval world are monsters. Kick down the doors of castles and cathedrals for loot b/c these fuckers aren't human - fuck them.

Clerics gain power from living saints, humans who have cobbled together enough power to give spells to clerics but otherwise the human gods are either dead or never existed.

US Senator Cory Booker risked both his career and freedom to publish these "committee confidential" documents about Kavanaugh. Loudly and in public. To demonstrate that executive privilege is being exercised inappropriately and in a partisan manner.


"One day," the dragon said, "this will be a world without dragons, and you will all be poorer for it."
The knight eyed the hoard. "Or richer."
"All of you?" the dragon laughed.
The knight bowed his head in defeat and left.

How did "the quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog" become the typical sentence that contains all letters of the alphabet and not "sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow" which is objectively a million times cooler
