jewelfox: A portrait of a foxgryphon with a beak, black fur, magenta hair, fox ears, and a neckband with a large jewel on it. (Default)

So, if you've read my access-locked posts the conflict is still going on. ^^; Someone important in my partner and friends' lives keeps saying and doing things that unintentionally hurt everyone, and dealing with the fallout -- and helping people defend themselves -- has been a full-time job these past few weeks.

On the plus side, I just got my hardcover copy of War of Ashes: Fate of Agaptus, by Sophie Lagacé! And for a limited time, you can get a pay-what-you-want (as low as $0) PDF version on DriveThruRPG.

A book cover which shows a variety of Muppet-like, furry creatures, brandishing weapons to defend themselves against hostile creatures, in a grim fantasy world where the sky is grey. The caption reads 'Roleplaying in a Grimsical World of Fantasy.'

"Grimsical" is the best word.

It's a rather grim fantasy RPG, which stars cute furry characters. I love it. ^^; It has very good production values, and the author does a really good job of porting the best parts of miniatures-based RPGs into Fate Accelerated, with stunts and manoeuvres that affect and are affected by positioning.

Why does it have optional minis rules? Because it's based on the War of Ashes miniatures game(s) by Zombiesmith, the makers of Kami Tale! So you can get cute, monstrous furry miniatures for your grimdark roleplaying game.

... I want all of them.

This essay was written as a response to Landmarks of Gaming Theory. It is meant to address problems which roleplayers and game designers experience, and to deconstruct a reactionary ideology which would in some cases prevent people from doing so. It is not meant to be the last word, so much as our personal starting point.

What this rule means

"People are going to be jerks to you here. You will be expected to sit still and take it. If you protest, call them out, or complain about being hurt, you will be punished."

I feel extremely uncomfortable about some of the essays I've posted recently, including the last one.

I think it's for two reasons:

  1. I'm not completely sure of myself, and feel that I'm being more definite than I should.

  2. I'm scared that I'll alienate others, or include someone I shouldn't or didn't mean to in a condemnation.

I don't know how much of this is real and how much of it is imaginary because of what I've been shamed for or argued about.

Edit: I think I also just feel like I'm not allowed to talk about some things, I remember feeling this way earlier, and I think I'm feeling this way again because of the last couple of conflicts that I got into.
