I did a tee design for The Mary Sue and We Love Fine, and it’s up for rating now! :) This particular design was so exciting to do, mostly because I’ve been obsessed with The Mary Sue since I discovered it. (Geekery AND feminism? You just described the core of my being.)
Those who know me  in person might notice I snuck a little something personal in here, too … . ;) I’ll leave it to everybody else to guess what it is.

We knew early on that we wanted the new edition to be inclusive: inclusive of beloved material from previous editions, inclusive of different play styles, and inclusive of a varied cast of characters. We also wanted to be welcoming to as many D&D players as possible, to look at the wonderfully diverse group of people who play the game and say, “There’s a place for each of you at the game table.”

A number of RPGs over the years have featured similar inclusivity, and we thought, “
D&D is going to do it too, and is going to do it boldly.”

Dungeons & Dragons lead designer Jeremy Crawford on the thought behind D&D Next's approach to gender and sexuality in character creation. Read the whole interview here.

"The United States is still a democratic republic, formally, but what that actually means in practice is increasingly in doubt — and the Hobby Lobby ruling, deeply disingenuous and sharply at odds with centuries of Anglo-American law, exemplifies how that formal reality is increasingly mocked in practice. It is a practice best described as neo-feudalism, taking power away from ordinary citizens, in all their pluralistic, idiosyncratic diversity, and handing it over to corporations and religious dictators in both the public and the private realm."
- Hobby Lobby is ushering in an age of religious theocrats. (via wilwheaton)
