Game Night

We finished up our Descent campaign, victory for the heroes despite losing so many quests, and finally began Dungeons and Dragons. Everyone made whatever they want so we had an eclectic group of mostly neutralish adventurers made up of Wood Elf Druid, Drow Monk, Half-Elf Bard, Half-Elf Wizard, and Tiefling Cleric. Other then the Bard, none of them have any experience with D&D other then the wizard having played Baldur’s Gate.

The group got through the initial two areas in their first outing. Goblins and a bugbear were slain, goblins had their heads exploded, goblins were set on fire, goblins were tortured for information and then carried around on a sling for info, goblins were put to sleep and murdered in their sleep, a forest was set on fire. Everyone was getting used to their characters little by little.

I am still getting used to DMing. Need to keep better track of initiative. Hopefully things will get smoother as we go along! Everyone had fun though I think.

The Boxtrolls is transmisogynist

phoenixhobbit:

So I went to see The Boxtrolls today having been very excited about all of the publicity, the general theme of the film, and all of the posters I saw of what appeared to be same gender families.

I left the cinema in tears because of it. It’s very transmisogynist. I do not advise anyone, especially trans women, to see this film. I’ll explain why below.

Odin: Loki, son, I need to talk to you.
Loki: Yes, Father?
Odin: You are becoming a young man. There are some things in your past that may come to light and your mother and I haven't told you before in fear it would upset you.
Loki: ... Yes?
Odin: At the final battle of Jotunheim, I found an infant. It was small and malnourished - a child Laufey sought not to claim for its power was in magic, not in physical strength.
Loki: ...
Odin: I took you from that battle, son, and your mother and I have loved you ever since.
Loki: Sssso... this is why you prefer Thor.
Odin: This is why I spend so much more time with Thor, yes. He is like me in that he has a temper to be tamed and physical strength he allows to take over when that anger boils over. Your mother is talented with magic and is clever with words as you are. Me being more like Thor doesn't make me love you any less than I love him.
Loki: ... Does Thor know?
Odin: He will if you wish him to.
Loki: We aren't family, then.
Odin: You are my son by love as your mother is my wife by marriage. Blood means little in the way of kin.
Loki: But I can't become king of Asgard.
Odin: ... Which is another reason I spend so much time with your headstrong brother as he'll eventually have to do public speaking outside of 'thor swing hammer' and he doesn't have the gilded tongue you do.
Loki: Ah. Well. ... Okay.
Odin: Okay?
Loki: Okay. ... So he isn't your favorite?
Odin: Your mother is my favorite.
and thus the entire movie line was avoided.
