dat practical armor

I love every aspect of this.

yes yes practical armor is super rad and stuff BUT IT IS A BLACK WOMAN REPRESENTING VANILLA ASS HUMANS IN A D&D HANDBOOK. THIS IS HUGE FOR ME! SHE’S NOT SOME “TRIBESWOMAN FROM THE SOUTHERN WILDS” OR SOME OTHER STUPID BULLSHIT THAT TRIES TO CONVINCE US BLACK PEOPLE NEED TO HAVE THEIR EXISTENCE EXPLAINED IN A FANTASY WORLD, GOD DAMMIT THIS MAKES ME SO HAPPY

It’s not just that.
The illustrations in the PHB are wonderful. The archtypical wizard is a black man, the gnome is a female ranger. They are getting a lot of shit for their wording not being tumblr-precise in the statement of genders, and for who they recruited for ideas, but this is how things change. They change by the examples in books being diverse, by phrases in books by people that those not fighting see as establishment. By the right way becoming a background thing that is just there, is not highlighted.
As a friend of mine said “I look forward to the day when this isn’t remarkable”. 
It’s not perfect. And by the time we reach perfect, perfect will have changed. but it’s a step towards better, and by those steps does perfect come closer.

As an ex-journo turned internet-monkey, I’ve spent the last week carefully toying with the idea of producing a video about the belief that the traditional games media is ethically compromised and/or corrupt.

After much consideration, I’ve decided that this would be a massive waste of time…

Papercut Installation by UfoCinque

Matteo Capobianco, aka Ufo5, was born in Novara in 1981. Originally an active member of the Italian writing scene, he gradually began to embrace a more extensive definition of street art while completing his design studies at the Politecnico of Milan.

As a firm believer in the endless possibilities of the mural as a communication tool, Matteo began to experiment with different techniques beyond the restrictions that writing as a codified subculture was putting in place.

Central to Ufocinque’s vision is his layering tehcnique: each element blending traditional painting techniques with a project-oriented attitude in which multiple levels of interpretation are intertwined together. Form is never detached from function as they are sustaining each other to create an effortlessly beautiful world.
