The Moon Crisis: A Sailor Moon Tribute Art Show tribute show opens today, right here in Anaheim! It runs until August 30, and I will be there on August 9 for the Art Crawl experience!
Oh how I wish Link appeared in or had a cameo in Bravely Default but sadly, he didn’t. Guess I’ll just see what happens in Bravely Second.
Many have heard me and other members of the Paizo crew discuss our constant efforts to make the Pathfinder RPG a welcoming place for gamers of all stripes. Regardless, I’ve never been comfortable with the idea of pointing out places where we get things right (or make an honest attempt to get…
"The Satanic Temple set up a website where women seeking an abortion can print out a letter for her healthcare provider explaining why she is exempt from informed consent mandates.
The letter reads that ‘[a]ll women who share our deeply held belief that their personal choices should be made with access to the best available information, undiluted by biased or false information, are free to seek protection with this exemption whether they are members of the Satanic Temple or not.’”
This is outstanding.
Cadistra - Despite being quite gentle and kind, Cadistra has a vicious temper. She’s very slow to anger; she’s not on a hair-trigger, but once you tip the scales she’s terrifying to behold. She’s always been like that, and her parents - who are druids themselves and encouraged her into it* - felt that channeling that anger would benefit the feral spirit.
Years later, she stuck with it, and sure enough - communing with the feral spirits of nature was the healthiest outlet she had, and uses that as a source of strength to fight for those she loves and the lands she wants to protect.
Kissless - Kissless has the ability to be terrifying, but is actually a pretty easy-going lady on her own. She gets angry, yes, and she does tend to lose herself in the heat of battle (power can be intoxicating that way) but very little will make her blinded by anger. For her, the most useful anger is a righteous anger, and it takes a few precise button-pushes to get there.
Kama - Harming innocents. Kama gets along really well with mortal children; he appreciates their innocence and ability to look forward to every new day as something to cherish. For someone to come and deprive those children of those chances, of those fresh days and happy sunrises…well. Dragons aren’t fun to be around when they’re angry.
*For the record, Cadi’s parents - Quana and Sihu - didn’t “push” her into druidism. They were both druids themselves, and while a young Cadi dabbled in shamanism, she took to druidism more, so naturally her parents supported her.
