It's probably for space concerns, but isn't there magic to switch genders in the series? They really wouldn't be trans anymore if they used it.Oh that one, they were missing quite a number of their Iconic characters on it let alone the handful of trans characters Amber made up
Belt/ Girdle/ Whatever of gender change, yes. Magical, instant, complete change. It means trans as an identity wouldn't exist even remotely the same way as in our would because there is no process of transition, there's just poof, it's done.It's probably for space concerns, but isn't there magic to switch genders in the series?

The character in Wrath of the Righteous was originally a man who felt he was always a woman and dated a half-orc female paladin. I believe the character was saving for the Elixer before they were injured.It's probably for space concerns, but isn't there magic to switch genders in the series?

Here's hoping she doesn't turn it into her usual schtick of social justice and doom.Death Knights is a PBTA game that I've been designing off and on for several years. It's a high fantasy game about traumatized people who swore revenge on the universe and accepted a terrible bargain: gain great power in exchange for a binding vow to end all of existence. You are committed to this terrible path, but there are still people you left behind, people you love, who you can't turn your back on.
We get this little tidbit from her new group about why it's ok for a group about "diveristy and inclusion" to kick out men. Because being nuetral is a vote for the male status-quo.Reviewing the March update, it feels like I didn't get nearly as much done - but the reality is that rather than lots of little things, I achieved one really big thing:
More Seats at the Table
In March, I had some conversations with Kira Magrann about our mutual frustrations with the perception that games by and about not-cismen are perceived as being only FOR not-cismen. This conversation led to us cooking up the idea of an email newsletter to promote games by marginalized designers - targeting cismen who would then either promote these games or purchase them. From there, we enlisted the amazing Misha Bushyager of New Agenda Publishing and Kimberley Lam, author of Atop a Lonely Tower - to help us work out the kinks in the idea and plan next steps.
Of course, launching successfully required promotional assistance from a number of dude publishers with large audiences. We had more than 30 dude publishers help with our launch (I honestly lost count), and with their help More Seats has 444 subscribers and 135 patrons (the Patreon being created to reimburse the four of us for our time and to cover costs, since Mail Chimp is only free up to 2000 subscribers).
Organizing all of this was a pretty huge task, since it involved deciding on policy, creating email templates, researching initial content, coordinating promotional efforts, setting up a Patreon, and generally trying to communicate with lots of folks while also not giving too much of the project away before launch. So it's not too surprising that this ended up consuming most of my attention social-justice wise for the month of April - especially given that a show ended up eating up lots of my attention. However, a couple other things that I was pleased to achieve involve:
- Tearing up Twitter with some widely read threads about the Toronto van attack.
- Completing an initial pass at reverse engineering my Kickstarter budget spreadsheet as a resource for new designers and publishers
- "Drive-by affirmations" whenever I had extra spoons for marginalized folks in need of support
She sure isn't fun around in regular settings. As I said before, while I've put up with annoying people and a "creepy guy", I never really faced the abuse feminist gamers say there is.I honestly have no objection to her setting up her exclusion groups since it will prove educational for her when she realizes she's still a misrable cow.
I think Anna's standards of harrasment and abuse are a lot looser than most people's In the first one she's genuinly enraged about the context of a apology. In that second one she's effectively ranting about being driven to hysterics by an invite from a peer who happens to be a dude.She sure isn't fun around in regular settings.

I know anxiety is a major one (she doesn't like making phone calls for her psychologist appointments over the phone because she gets too agitated) and I think she might have depression as well.I think Anna's standards of harrasment and abuse are a lot looser than most people's In the first one she's genuinly enraged about the context of a apology.

I suspect meerly being in a prodominatly male group qualifies. She clearly consider their presense an insult.
Does anyone know Anna's mental illness actually is? This over the top meladramatic behavour, dubious claims combined with the fact the indie scene is obviously going out their way to protect her and she's still salty as fuck implies whatever her problem is it might be affecting her personality on a day to day basis anst she's not actually making any attempt to control it.
The most distinguishing symptoms of BPD are marked sensitivity to rejection or criticism, and intense fear of possible abandonment. Overall, the features of BPD include unusually intense sensitivity in relationships with others, difficulty regulating emotions, and impulsivity. Other symptoms may include feeling unsure of one's personal identity, morals, and values; having paranoid thoughts when feeling stressed; dissociation and depersonalization
STAR WARS FANS WHO ARE MEN AND THINK THEY ARE "DECENT DUDES". When someone shares a "support Kelly Tran" thing, DO. NOT!!!! Respond with "yeah but The Last Jedi sucked". NO ONE ASKED FOR YOUR FUCKING OPINION, CHAD.
The most on-brand thing I have done this month: today I got angry and wrote a 7 page statistical analysis of how hard someone fucked up, with graphs and everything, in one day. DO NOT FUCK WITH ME. I KNOW HOW TO QUANTIFY YOUR STUPIDITY.
And this is coming from a woman who has a total hatred of men to the point she made a convention event where they get humilated.But CHILDREN are PEOPLE, and expressing blanket hatred of a group of people isn't fucking okay.
Sounds Hilarious.a comedy LARP about gender essentialism, heterosexism, and the rigidity of gender expectations
Players: 9-12 (including facilitator)
Time required: 2 hours
In The Straights Are Not Okay, you will play a group of people at a gender reveal party in a national forest. Nominally, party attendees are there to support the expectant parents, but during play you will use the occasion to vent frustrations and resentments with other party guests in the pettiest, most passive-aggressive manner possible. The game will end when the gender reveal goes hilariously wrong and the party-goers burn down the forest.
Content Warning: This game revolves around themes of gender-essentialism, gender binarism, and heterosexism, although it does so as a way of holding up a critical lens to these common stereotypes. In The Straights Are Not Okay, you will all play characters who are cisgender and heterosexual (or claim to be heterosexual), although each character may be played by any person of any gender or sexuality. Players should not feel obligated to align their character choices with their own gender.
