Monsterhearts, Night Witches, Tabletop RPGs

At Continuum 13, I had the pleasure of sitting on the Tabletop Gaming panel with Aidan Doyle, Darryl “Owlbear” Brown, Laura Wilkinson and Bryce Campbell. The discussion was a mix of designer and player perspectives, and remained an upbeat conversation throughout. We could have continued for hours.

One of the things I touched on in the panel was feminism and gaming. I wanted to elaborate a little on that here.

The rise of Kickstarter has brought a new golden age for indie RPGs. As the panel mentioned, you can now find something for everyone. This includes games that have strong feminist influences and encourage diversity. A few of the games that have come across my radar include:

Bluebeard’s Bride by Whitney Strix Beltrn, Marissa Kelly, and Sarah Richardson. This gothic horror RPG is still in production, but you can still preorder and check out their Kickstarter pitch video. Players collectively form Bluebeard’s Bride, playing different aspects of her psyche as she explores her husband’s mansion. Although the game uses the structure of the original fairytale, it encourages players to tell their own versions, allowing space for the empowering as well as the tragic.

Eclipse Phase by Posthuman Studios is a cyberpunk game which has just Kickstarted its second edition. This game is perhaps a little less explicitly feminist than the others. However, being concerned with posthumanism, it allows space for exploration of gender and disability through mechanisms for swapping and augmenting bodies. Perhaps unsurprisingly, it has more of a complicated rule system than the other games (which are all Powered by the Apocalypse).

Monsterhearts by Avery Alder is one of my favourite RPGs. It’s an urban fantasy about teenage monsters. As you might expect, teenage sexuality is an important element of the game. This may be why it is the first (and, so far, only) game I’ve ever seen discuss asexuality and allows space for that within the rules. It is also built around the premise that everyone is fundamentally bisexual and can be turned on by characters of any gender–though players always retain the choice of whether they wish to act on these feelings.

Night Witches by Jason Morningstar. Set in WW2, players are members of the all-female 588th Night Bomber Regiment in the Russian Army. The game touches on the discrepancy between the Soviet philosophy of equality and how the women were actually treated. It also explicitly mentions queer relationships and one of the playbooks allows for a genderqueer character.

The Watch by Anna Kreider and Andrew Medeiros. A low magic fantasy wherein a mystical enemy known as the Shadow invades. Able to enter and subvert the minds of its enemies, the Shadow is particularly effective against men. It’s up to women and non-binary femmes to form the Watch and defend their lands. This is another game still in production, but you can still check out their Kickstarter. I appreciate the explicit inclusion of non-binary femmes in their pitch. The game also looks like it will have some mechanisms which deal with mental health.

These games have diversity and inclusivity baked into their premise and mechanisms. While I will always value these sorts of games the most, they’re not the only way of promoting diversity in RPGs. As I mentioned in the panel, simply including diverse people in the accompanying artwork can go some way towards fostering an inclusive environment. The fifth edition of Dungeons and Dragons has made some improvements in this fashion (even if the setting retains some problematic elements).

The games I’ve mentioned here are surely just the tip of the iceberg. If you’re a keen tabletop RPGer, I’d love to hear from you: Which feminist RPGs have you discovered?

Hard Things

Life is full of things which are hard or tedious or otherwise unpleasant that need doing anyhow. They help make the world go 'round, they improve skills, and they boost your sense of self-respect. But doing them still kinda sucks. It's all the more difficult to do those things when nobody appreciates it. Happily, blogging allows us to share our accomplishments and pat each other on the back.

What are some of the hard things you've done recently? What are some hard things you haven't gotten to yet, but need to do?

I'm having weird capoeira feelings today, which is that after a disastrous game last weekend (not the entire class! Class was overall great! Just one disastrous sparring session/game [they call it a game in capoeira] that left me feeling OH MY GOD I CAN'T DO THIS) I just don't want to go back and face everyone. And by everyone I mean my two teachers who have been the only damn ones there the last few classes. And. Ugh. Anxiety is a fucker who can go die in a brainsoup of some kind. Probably exercise endorphins.

Other than that, hey, either the boy changed his mind about gardening or he did all the things he wanted to do because when I got home yesterday the only thing left to do was to strip off the bed. Which we did after pizza was consumed because of reasons and also being too tired to cook. Pizza will also be consumed tonight, since it's a capoeira night goddammit, never mind what my various weasels say.

In utterly unrelated makeup news, I decided to make my own nudes palette of only mattes because every other palette I have has half shimmer shades and look, I like these but if I want shimmer and sparkle I have literally about a hundred loose powders I can use. Okay? Okay. I figure I'll get me a bigass palette and slowly stock it with various nudes and other potentially useful mattes, muted tones or what have you, to be backgrounds to my sparkle. Because I'm getting sophisticated in my makeup looks, wot! God help me. I've been practicing with the palettes in my care package and I'm slowly getting the hang of it, I think! Very slowly. But still, enough to invest a bit more into the whole thing. If it doesn't work out I can fill the rest of the palette with contours or something. Although the shade and light palette is working out pretty damn good.

Now I just need to conquer this concept of eyeliner as it applies to how I do my eyes. Because what the hell. Also lash curling. I need to get the hang of lash curling.

Writing continues. I owe Starlight three wiki entries as of today, I need to get on that, but those should hopefully go by fast if with a lot of bracket notes. And I've been working on Malachy, and I need to contact an entertainment lawyer because actions have happened that none of you saw. That will probably happen tomorrow on account of today is a capoeira day and I barely have brain as it is. And then I need to figure out how the fuck I'm going to pay lawyer fees, son of a bitch. I forgot about that. Maybe that's what credit cards were made for, though. Argh. Stupid money. If I'm really lucky though the receptionist will listen to the situation and say "Okay that's like half an hour, the fee is $50" and I can just pay. Aaargh why does life cost money.

That's not entirely true. This isn't life this is following an aspiration the smartest way I can manage, and paying people for their time and skills that they earned with effort and time and paying money themselves, and that's all fine. I'm just also annoyed at my own life and lack of sufficient funds to do all the cool shit I really want to do. ... on second thought maybe I'll call an entertainment lawyer now. Just so I have that less of an unknown quantity in my head.

Toooo many things going on at once, and this is me trying to do too many things at once, and I should go to capoeira tonight just so I have to take a couple hours to do what's in front of me, that's physical work with a bit of brainpower for focus and tactics. I need focus and calm and that's not happening right now because too excited about the Redacted. Ugh.

This poem is spillover from the June 6, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] janetmiles. It also fills the "Webs and Networks (Power / Influence / Control)" square in my 4-19-16 card for the [community profile] genprompt_bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Calliope thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some controversial topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. Calliope and Vagary are still kind of a mess, but getting better. This includes questions about gift-giving, detailed discussions of health coverage, transgender health and other issues, acceptance and rejection, awkward comparisons between supervillains and other people, Vagary is actually rather good with people under limited circumstances for which he has received training, and he's getting better in general due to level-grinding social skills, not exactly hacking but looks like it, vague financial discussions, boundary issues, complications of identity, frog handling, fertility challenges, Vagary is making his own friends in Stillwater, and is a huggy monkey when not trying to avoid upsetting Calliope, and other angst. But mostly it's positive. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.

kittydesade: Quote "I have a headache, a badge, and a gun. Behave." (headache badge gun)
The boy is home and apparently not only contracted poison ivy in the last few days (I am SO GLAD I have inverse poison plant allergies) but also shares my CLEAN AND FIX AND TIDY ALL THE THINGS urge. At least until he goes back to work. So apparently today I managed to get him to mop and wipe down the kitchen and he's going to walk around the front of the house and try to find all the poison ivy and poison sumac so I can get rid of it. I'm sure I've mentioned this before here? I'm apparently allergic to English ivy. Not poison ivy. I have no idea why, I'm built backwards, but it makes gardening fun and easier. And then we're also apparently going to flea-treat all the upholstery and bedding that's in the lived-in portions of the house (no cats are allowed in the guest room so that's fine) because it's that time of year again yay.

Speaking of gardens I really need to make both the bread and the bruschetta. Maybe tonight, if I get all my writing tasks done while at work. At the rate things are going I'm going to spend all my time at home either studying or doing household chores. Which isn't bad, just, eek. At least we have quick and easy or frozen food with which to make dinner.

I am a little alarmed at how optimistic I'm feeling given the consistent and pervasive and sometimes successful efforts of the current regime to destroy this country. I mean, nationally things are a shitshow, but locally and personally I actually feel pretty good. It's leading to a hell of a lot of cognitive dissonance, let me tell you.

I called my Senator and got a person. For the first time in a couple months. That might be the way to do it (after trying a couple ways that didn't work so well), send myself an email of the script and leave it in my inbox until it annoys me enough to call or the script changes, then call around lunch. Or midnight if I don't feel up to people-ing. The guy was polite but sounded frazzled and annoyed at everything, which I have some slight sympathy for given that I don't know he's a horrible person who wants the GOP agenda to go through.

(Of course now that I've planned all this for when I get home, that's when two wholesalers call and want this thing and that thing and thirty pounds of merch and seventy five pounds of merch and I don't even know what's going on today. I think I'm just going to keep moving on forward momentum and hope it all works out. At least I'll sleep well tonight.)

(Also the universe keeps sending me invitations to step into writing shit, or at least develop relationships, and it's confusing and scary.)

Serie: "The world of urban decay" fotoboekenserie van Martin Bouwhuijs
Soort uitgave: hardcover
Aantal pagina's: 176
Uitgever: Schiffer Publishing, Ltd.
Jaar van publicatie: origineel 2017, mijn editie 2017 (1e editie)
ISBN-nummer: 9780764352560
Trefwoorden: foto's, verlaten gebouwen
Waarom ging ik het lezen: Het klonk heel interessant en ik was erg benieuwd naar zulke verlaten locaties hier in Europa.
Aanrader: Ja. Dit boek is vooral interessant voor mensen die willen weten hoe gebouwen eruit gaan zien als ze niet onderhouden worden en voor mensen met een interesse in de Europese geschiedenis van de twintigste eeuw.


Korte samenvatting:
Fotograaf Martin ten Bouwhuijs heeft in dit boek foto's verzameld die hij de afgelopen drie jaar van verlaten gebouwen in Nederland, België, Italië, Duitsland, Frankrijk, Noorwegen, Zweden en Denemarken heeft gemaakt. De staat van vervalling verschilt per gebouw - in sommige zijn de bedden begroeid met mos, terwijl het op sommige foto's lijkt alsof het gebouw pas net verlaten is en het bureau nog vol ligt met papier. Vanwege instortingsgevaar is het vaak verboden om dit soort gebouwen te bezoeken, dus Martin beschrijft af en toe ook wat er gebeurde bij zijn pogingen om foto's te maken.

Achterkanttekst:
Eastern and Western Europe's many forgotten buildings and abandoned lots greet visitors most often with a warning: "Trespassers will be prosecuted!" And yet, for intrepid urban explorers, the appeal is clear. Photographer Martin ten Bouwhuijs takes readers inside these imposing, seemingly lifeless structures - some abandoned for more than 25 years - including churches, mortuaries, factories, hospitals, swimming pools, and more. Unaffected by human interference for years, these spaces have become wonders of beautiful, natural decay: moss grows on mattresses and cars, wallpaper peels, and floors - complete with beds, pianos, and the detritus of human existence - utterly collapse. These images, the result of daring photographic escapades, bring a new appreciation for the beautiful architecture and the awe-inspiring grandeur of times past. Surreal perspectives - the bottom of a stairwell in a vacant sanatorium, an unsupervised Swedish junkyard, and more - as well as arresting, sensually provocative images will appeal to those already hooked on the beauty of urban decay as well as history buffs, photography collectors, and anyone who appreciates contemplating the ever-changing intersection between man and nature.

Eerste alinea van de "Introduction":
As a child I grew up in Enschede, in the Netherlands. I started taking photographs with my father's SLR camera - mainly, pictures of trucks. At that time, Enschede had a lot of abandoned textile mills. I was always curious about what the interios of the factories would look like after several years of emptiness, but I never dared to go inside, partly because of the signs that announced "trespassers will be prosecuted." Still, I followed with interest the demolition of almost all the plants.

Recensie:
Inhoud:
Na een korte introductie volgen vele pagina's met foto's. Elke pagina bevat een grote foto waarop genoeg details te zien zijn, met onder elke foto maximaal twee regels tekst. Achterin staat per locatie een iets uitgebreidere beschrijving.

Op de "Acknowledgements"-pagina vooraan staat nog wel een belangrijke alinea: "To protect the locations in this book, their names, the names of the villages and all other names, as well as years and other information that could lead to a specific location, are changed."
Dit is gedaan omdat het bezoeken van zulke locaties wel riskant is en de uitgever en auteur geen aansprakelijkheid nemen voor mogelijke ongelukken, maar hierdoor zijn de bijschriften bij de foto's heel algemeen: "Grand Hotel, Austria" of "Villa S, Italy". Alleen locaties die niet meer bestaan of zijn/worden omgebouwd, lijken bij hun echte naam en locatie te worden genoemd. Deze plaatsen kun je toch niet meer bezoeken.
Het is begrijpelijk dat de auteur en uitgever deze keuze hebben gemaakt en het doet niets af aan de foto's, maar dit maakt het wel lastiger om meer informatie te vinden over de locaties, mocht je dat willen doen.

De meeste gebouwen zijn in de jaren '90 verlaten, een aantal in de jaren '80 en ook nog een paar in de jaren 2000. Ook staan er een aantal foto's in van oude auto's uit de jaren '50 en '60 van de vorige eeuw, genomen op een Zweeds autokerkhof.
Veel gebouwen lijken helemaal niet zo lang geleden gebouwd te zijn, maar toch vervalt zo'n gebouw heel snel als er niets meer mee gedaan wordt. Dit geeft het boek wel een beetje deprimerende sfeer.

Er staat zelfs een foto in van een verlaten ziekenhuiskamer in Denemarken, inclusief mappen, papieren, Post-It-blokjs, een pen en een faxapparaat. Je vraagt je vaak af waarom zo'n gebouw precies verlaten is en in wat voor omstandigheden dit gebeurd is. Bij de uitgebreide beschrijvingen achterin het boek, wordt voor een aantal locaties antwoord gegeven op deze vragen.

Schrijfstijl:
De reden dat het boek in het Engels is geschreven, ook al is de auteur Nederlands, is waarschijnlijk omdat de foto's in verschillende landen in Europa genomen zijn en een Engels boek natuurlijk ook in meer landen te verkopen is. Bij de foto's zelf staat amper tekst, maar achterin, bij de uitgebreide beschrijvingen, staat wel veel tekst. Soms leken de zinnen "Nederlands Engels", maar alles is goed te begrijpen.

Spelfouten/Typefouten:
Bladzijde 7:
But these building are also affected by great changes in the world. =
But these buildings are also affected by great changes in the world.

Bladzijde 173:
Er staat "kilometer", maar het is misschien beter om daar "kilometre" van te maken. "Kilometer" is de Amerikaanse spelling, maar "kilometre" is de internationale spelling.

Afbeeldingen:
Dit boek gaat natuurlijk over de afbeeldingen. Binnenin staan alleen foto's van de binnenkanten van de gebouwen, maar de achterkaft heeft foto's van de buitenkanten van de gebouwen waarvan binnenin het boek interieurfoto's staan.

Conclusie:
De foto's in dit boek geven een goed beeld van wat er met gebouwen gebeurd als ze niet onderhouden worden. Het lezen van de beschrijvingen geeft ook te denken over wat "modern" is en waarvoor gebouwen gebruikt worden als zulke dingen niet meer modern zijn, omdat een aantal gebouwen in dit boek vaak van functie zijn veranderd.

Herleesbaarheid:
Als je de foto's voor een tweede keer bekijkt, zie je weer wat andere dingen dan de eerste keer. Het zijn echter zo veel foto's, dat het geen boek is om in één keer geheel door te kijken en lezen.

[personal profile] ng_moonmoth is interested in hosting a pool for the half-price sale in Polychrome Heroics.

I'm interested in sponsoring "The Place Where the Journey Begins" and
"We Are All Related". These two together would be half of $464=$232. I'm
ready to go in for half of that ($116) if there are enough people
interested in covering the other half.

Please let me know if you are interested in participating, and how much
you wish to put it. I have a PayPal account which I am willing to use as
the collection point if we can get this pool going, but don't want any
money until I know I can pass it along.

I'm also interested in "Uncertain Miracles", so if anyone wants to buy
in there at the 1/4-price rate, they could.

Any interest?


If you want to get in on this, contact [personal profile] ng_moonmoth to discuss details.

This poem is spillover from the June 6, 2017 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by [personal profile] dreamwriteremmy. It also fills the "invisible disabilities" square in my 3-1-17 card for the Disability Bingo fest. This poem has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. It belongs to the Shiv thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Warning: This poem contains some intense topics. Highlight to read the warnings, some of which are spoilers. It features mental issues, because the inside of Shiv's head is always a warning, reference to past communication challenges, the comprehension gap between nonverbal and verbal languages, rude humor. reference to ugly aspects of history including slavery and death from unavailability of safe abortion care, reference to brain injuries, Shiv is resistant to seeking help or even admitting he's not okay, but he actually manages it occasionally, cape politics, awkward social interactions, reference to lousy hairdressers and discrimination against people with special needs, minimally verbal autistic character wrangling with English when his native language is visual rather than spoken, tense (but not violent) interaction with a police officer, who is a bit clunky interacting with a nonverbal person, frustration over being expected to solve other people's problems, loneliness, regret, threats, and other challenges. It's mostly positive, though, as Shiv fumbles his way toward better coping skills. If these are sensitive issues for you, please consider your tastes and headspace before reading onward.

Today is mild and pleasant, but quite windy.  I took some pictures earlier, but don't know how well they'll turn out due to all the tossing about.

We picked up many sticks from the strip along the street and up the driveway.  One branch had fallen to stick upright in the ground!

Also I found a nest of baby bunnies, so remowing that area will have to wait a few days until they vacate.  They're hand-sized and furry, so it shouldn't take long before they move out.

EDIT 6/19/17: I planted more morning glories and moonflower around the support wire.  Most of the older ones had been eaten.  >_<  

EDIT 6/19/17: We picked up sticks back toward the east edge of the yard.

EDIT 6/19/17: I trimmed branches from a fruit tree and honeysuckles.  Then Doug cut larger ones from the golden rain tree and the walnut by the road.

Ooogh okay self, you can do your eyes around your exercises but the rest of your makeup you do need to sit down and do and then maybe you'll be scrambling less to get everything in the right order in the mornings? Oy. Today I had... okay less of a large amount of time than I feel like I did, but still. And I still ended up scrambling because I tripped over my makeup routine. But on the plus side I did my back PT, which I've been neglecting for way longer than I should have. I do need to write down my new makeup routine/order now though, so I don't completely forget it. Given it's new.

I am totes turning in all my credit card points for Sephora gift cards though, in the event that we get to have a girls ditch Con for Sephora hour or two at DragonCon.

I may have gone a bit nuts over the weekend. I tidied up my vanity area so all my boxes fit. Not so much all my stuff, there's a knife box with lipsticks that I need to figure out where they go, but the boxes fit is the important thing. I mopped a little over half the upstairs and 3/4 of the downstairs. Of course I swept up first. I put away a bunch of things that had been hanging out waiting to be put away, took out a bunch of trash, cleaned out the fridge, and did the usual weekend laundry/dishes. Oh, made pizza dough. I was going to make bread dough but by that time it was like 10pm. I sorted out my physics binder so that my indexes for each section were actually goddamn legible. Put away a bunch of crap on the coffee table, wiped that down. Put in the downstairs window AC unit with the help of Uncle Elf Lord.

Spring cleaning a month late? Actually probably this was more to do with having pushed deadlines all last week and weekend and then this weekend not having the boy so I could blast music while I cleaned and deciding THIS PLACE IS A PIGSTY I AM THE WORST HOUSEKEEPER EVER CLEAN ALL THE THINGS. As I do when I just get past a deadline.

Not much else of interest going on. The boy's coming back from his parents' a day late because of illness, which I had better not get dammit. And hopefully he's not coming with rifles or a giant antique lamp or any other weird shit that he's come back with in the past. I have two maj... three major projects to work on, none of which I think are line by line edits? I don't even remember what the hell I was last editing. Starlight is about to hit rewrites in a couple weeks, Malachy is in major overhauls, and The Anthology Formerly Known As White Lightning is in writes ish. So okay. Entirely doable and a lot of fun. But still not much interest just yet. Or at least not the kind of frenetic running in circles screaming my head off interest. That was last week.

(As a random point of interest though, I've been thinking ahead on Malachy and the Lifestyles girls some and I need to watch more things with Taylor Kitsch in them.)
