dat practical armor

I love every aspect of this.

NO you guys don’t understand, the entire book is like this. They tried to cram in all sorts of representation of different races and the art is gorgeous and it’s GREAT! The picture for a spellcaster is a female human who is wearing BAGGY, NON-SEXUALIZED CLOTHING AND NO MAKEUP because she’s in a dungeon, she doesn’t have time to do her hair cmon.

Also this:

*mildly impressed clapping*

this makes me happy

D&D is great.

… this response bothers me because it seems to imply D&D hasn’t had similar things in the past.

I know that 4e had an Asian woman and Caucasian man depicted for their human entry.  There are plenty of examples of artwork not featuring skimpy outfits (and there is nothing wrong with skimpy outfits btw) and as its an RPG, anyone could play any concept for gender and items like sex-swap items existed in D&D for decades.

Geek culture has always been inclusive.  This gaslighting bullshit pisses me off.

The great thing about roleplaying games is that the rules are just there to make the game part work. The “crunch” as its sometimes called. And the background/story aspects can be completely independent to the rules. So the world is literally what the GM wants to make it. And the things in those homebrew adventures filter back into the “canon” such that it is through fans becoming creators. 

Be the change you want to see. Run a tabletop roleplaying game. Because some of us have been GMing since middle school, and now we’re 40, and we’d just like to frickin’ play for once.

This message paid for by Gnolls. Gnolls, because in my background, they’re the primary rival to humanity in spite of/because of their status as a bunch of lazy, low-brow dorks. The Monster Manual is anti-Gnoll propaganda.

Gaming has not always been inclusive. Not at all. Women and POC have always played, but the majority of gaming art featuring us was either some asshole’s sexual fantasy or “exotic.”

And there is very little practical and “not sexy” about that last fucking illustration. She has armor on her thighs and forearms, so she obviously expects a fight, but not her torso, YOU KNOW, WHERE THE ORGANS LIVE!!!!!!!! Also, she’s wearing heels, totally impractical even if they are wedges, just reblogged a piece about that shit the other day. And she’s not taking any deep breaths with her boobs compressed like that. Trust me, I’ve worn similar outfits in the really real world. I know of whenever I speak.

Geek culture has most definitely NOT always been inclusive. I cannot tell you how many comic and gaming store clerks have asked if I was lost or looking for my boyfriend, one time while I was wearing a Warhammer Sisters of Battle shirt ffs.

Fuck off with your dismissal of the lived experience of thousands of POC, women, girls, and queer gamers. Those of us who are older got into these things in spite of the prevailing cultural attitudes, not because of them.

Who the fuck is gaslighting people here?

The Sad Decline of Yemen, the Best Country You’ll Never Get to See



Yemen is one of the world’s oldest centers of civilization. Nestled in a corner of the Arabian Peninsula along the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden, many of its towns were already thriving and trading for spices and frankincense when the Greek geographer Ptolemy depicted them on maps 2,000 years ago. The land was called Arabia Felix, or Happy Arabia, for its fertile land and adequate rainfall.

I’ve traveled in more than 160 countries, and Yemen is my favorite. Sanaa is the country’s jewel. According to tradition, this ancient city was founded by Shem, the son of Noah of the Biblical ark. The entirety of Sanaa’s old town, cram-filled with six- to eight-story “tower houses” made of mud bricks, has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage site. Many of these venerable old houses are now tilting with age, leaning toward each other like elderly couples reaching for support. Their sand-colored exterior walls are fancifully decorated with artistic designs on the plasterwork and enlivened by colorful geometrically shaped stained-glass windows that are highly effective to draw in light. Sanaa has thousands of these houses, which have been called the world’s first skyscrapers.

Throughout my travels around Yemen, I often gasped in amazement encountering sights that pulled me into medieval times. In Yemen’s far eastern Hadhramaut Valley is the oasis town of Shibam. Inhabited for more than 1,700 years, the town contains a tight collection of some 500 skyscrapers soaring up from the desert sand and surrounded by a protective earthen wall. It is deservedly called the Manhattan of the Desert.

From my own experience, Yemen is indeed one of the best places on earth, if not the best. 

Although I’ve only lived there for 4-5 years, they were the best years of my life. Everything about Yemen was beautiful and enchanting, whether it was the culture, cuisine, nature, climate, history, or the people and their kindness and hospitality. 

I’ve lived in many places in the diaspora after fleeing Palestine, and Yemen was the only place that felt closest to home. While living there, not for a second I felt as a stranger, people over there treated me as if I was one of them. 

I remember I would walk down the streets of Sana’a, where the weather was spectacular and random people who I walked past would greet me and whenever I walked by street restaurants or street vendors people would invite me to eat with them and whenever I did, they would refuse to take my money and would be insulted if I ever tried to pay them. And I remember whenever I took a cab to get somewhere and the cab driver knew I wasn’t from around, he too would also refuse to take my money and would tell me “till next time” (although I would never see him again) or “you’re a guest in our country, you’re not supposed to pay.” 

And wherever you went in Yemen, the nature over there was just breathtaking, My favorite thing in Yemen was going on road trips, where you would get to drive on high and narrow mountain roads that would literally let you drive into clouds. 

I am so lucky that I got to live in Yemen and I wish and hope the country and its people witness peace again.

Man kann Probleme SO EINFACH lösen!








Considering my sexuality and my life circumstances, this tweet can fuck off.  This generation is absurdly soft and overcoddled, to the point where many within it can’t handle a simple disagreement. 

boomers are more coddled than any of us will ever be

Baby boomers didn’t demand ‘safe spaces’ at university though

no they just freak out when their food is 20 seconds late and cry when a sports ball man doesn’t stand for the anthem

They fucking demanded that women not be allowed in college with them. They demanded women not wear pants! Even young school girls couldn’t wear pants in 20 degree weather! But yeah, sure, they didn’t demand safe spaces. Just demanded everyone follow their ideals.

They didn’t need to demand safe spaces because their spaces were designed to be as safe as possible for them.
