All manner of scifi/fantasy/nerdness: RPGs, comic books, Firefly, RPGs, Community, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, RPGs, Avengers, Doctor Who, And RPGs. And comic books. And RPGS. Not a "fandom" blog, unless D&D alignments count as a fandom.

Portal is probably the last major video game release that didn’t star a white, 18-35 year old white dude with short hair, stubble and a scowl. That game came out six years ago.

I don’t understand how people can get mad and confused when you point out that there’s not enough creativity or diversity in video games. Granted, there was definitely room for growth in the 80’s and 90’s, but we’ve fallen way behind since then. We used to have space pilot furries and master thieves. Dragons, bandicoots, hedgehogs and plumbers. Women who were archaeologists and bounty hunters.

So why are we still marketing games exclusively to fraternity douchebags? There’s no excuse for having such narrow goals in 2013.

THIS IS NOT OKAY.

Thank you! And people don’t get it when I explain this.

SHARING BECAUSE OF ALL REASON!

why do people avoid happy backstories like theyre the plague stop listening to linkin park for a moment and realize you dont need to be miserable to have character development

One of the most entertaining characters I ever helped create ended up inheriting the illegitimate family business at 16 and *he loved every second of it*. 

….I don’t know if that’s a happy backstory or just a happy evil person, but eh

You know my favourite thing to do as a GM?

Have a PC’s parents show up and be super embarrassing.
Mum. “Oh look at you! 12th level necromancer! So fancy.”
Dad: “It’s not too late to start working on the farm like your brothers.”
Mum: “Stop it. You know li’l Thimbly is allergic to leather.”
Mordo of the Dark Triad: “DO NOT CALL ME THIMBLY IN FRONT OF MY FRIENDS!”

Is that a theta next to the “One World” thingamabob? 
THOU SHALT NOT CALCULATE THINE ANGLES THOU SHALT EYEBALL IT ONLY!!! LEST YE DIIIIIIIIIIIIEE….

Wait…”trilateralism?” Like, as in, economic relations between North America, Europe, and Japan?

A staff of Asclepius? So medicine is satanic?

As is Saint Luke’s cross (because it’s Jack Chick, the dude thinks Catholics have a super computer to eradicate all the protestants)

Is LOTR seriously on there
Lord of the rings is on there

D&D - one of the creators was a Christian (not sure about Arneson, but I suspect it too), and one of their major settings was made by two super devout Mormons. Yeah… it always bothered me that “Oh, D&D leads to Satanism” was an argument.You know why it doesn’t lead to Satanism? Because Satan is CR 39. God has no statblock. I can’t kill God. I can’t even think of killing God. But Satan? That guy is worth 209,920,000 XP. (Tome of Horrors Complete, page 212) He drops the Rod of Infernus and Hell’s Redoubt armor, which I’m fairly certain you can get XP for either purifying and returning to their angelic roots or destroying.See, D&D doesn’t want you to follow Satan. It wants you to stalk Satan, murder him and steal his stuff.

Film Crit Hulk responds to Vulture’s trainwreck of an article, ‘Why Captain America Is Only Interesting If He’s a Prick’.

I am largely upset about this post because it made me aware of that asinine article.  Thank you Film Crit Hulk for pointing out that there’s still room for stories about interesting AND good people in this world.

Why do some outsiders want to make other outsiders feel like outsiders?
3 Fan Communities That Hate Their Own Members

#3. Comic Books
Comic fans are ruthless. The instant you say something about a character or storyline that they disagree with, they immediately do their very best to exclude you from the community. Girls get it the worst — a girl can’t wear an Aquaman T-shirt to any kind of nerdy gathering without getting accused of not being a true fan (whatever the hell that means) and being grilled with Aquaman trivia questions that no human being should be able to answer. (The correct answer to “If you’re such a big fan, then in what issue of Aquaman did we learn the name of Aquaman’s father?” is “Fuck you — Arthur, Prince of the Sea, belongs to everyone.”)

Cracked is throwing down the hammer here folks.  Comic book nerds & gamers continue their rep of being really hostile to newcomers.  We’ve got to do better.
