The bi mod you were all waiting for (at least I sure was).

The intent of this mod isn’t just to allow women to romance Morrigan and men to romance Alistair, it’s to add everything missing in these romances to make them as immersive as possible. Whenever there’s an opportunity to flirt with an npc that was gender restricted, I made it open for gay/bi wardens as well (cause let’s be real, the only gender restrictions were in favour of straight flirting). This involved a ton of dialogue and audio editing, along with constructing brand new dialogue.

What this mod includes:

  • Characters won’t misgender the Warden. This applies to every time the Warden’s relationship with Alistair or Morrigan is acknowledged.
  • Any gendered dialogue has been edited.
  • Added new banter for characters so that they’ll acknowledge the gay relationships.
  • Added jealousy dialogues for Alistair and Morrigan if the Warden is cheating on either of them with the other.
  • Women can do the dark ritual with Morrigan.
  • Women can marry Anora.
  • Men can marry Alistair.
  • Previously dude exlusive flirting options for Leliana are now open to women.
  • Removed unnecessary gender restrictions on the Warden’s dialogue options.
  • Any bugs that I encountered have been fixed.

Below are a couple of examples so that you can see for yourself, a more extended description, along with more videos, can be found in the nexus link.

I joined a DnD campaign but when I told my parents they told me to quit because they say it's a demonic game linked to witchcraft. Was Dungeons and Dragons linked to that stuff at any point? Like in the 80's or 90's when my parents were young that lead them to believe that?

Actually, yeah! People tried to blame D&D for all kinds of crazy stuff in the 70s, 80s, and early 90s. 

This led to one of the classics of D&D media, the Dead Ale Wives’ sketch: 

Which shows just how silly the association between D&D and “evil stuff omg!!” really is. 

Mod storytime: My own mom actually had some reservations when I started playing - she had attended MSU around the time of Dallas Egbert’s death, so it was understandable. So I asked if we could have the games at our house, where she could watch and see what we were doing. She agreed, and after the first game had absolutely no problem with me playing. She told me later that, as a mother, it was incredibly nice to see her kid safe at home (or a friend’s house), telling stories and eating pizza with a group of other kids, instead of out on the street doing God-knows-what. 

In fact, she ended up liking the game so much that she now has her own character, a barbarian queen!

sena-reika  asked:

Just came across your blog and I like your analysis of the characters of the InaGo characters. Can you do a character analysis on Kurosaki Makoto? And maybe a ship analysis between him and Senguuji Yamato (pity they didn't do that in the Resistance Japan episode.)

Wow! My first ship analysis already! Remember people, you all can ask me anything related to Go. 

Okay, I’d love to have some good content for this ship, but unfortunately Kurosaki Makoto and Senguuji Yamato don’t have that much interaction. However I see how people would ship them, judging from how Senguuji’s team took over Kurosaki’s during the final game. It’s pretty astute for fans to see that anyways. Senguuji and Kurosaki is that kind of ship that even though they don’t converse much, you still see the hidden chemistry behind it. And yes, it is a pity that we don’t see that much interaction between the two in Galaxy when Resistance Japan fought against Inazuma Japan. Kurosaki and Senguuji are both excellent Captains, and more reappearances from them would be nice. 

Now for the character analysis on Kurosaki. Again, just like the ship- we don’t see much of Kurosaki- especially because his team only was present for half the game(even though the last game lasted like 4 episodes gosh). Except, we can trace back his character to Gouenji Ishido Shuuji’s motives. It was clear that the Holy Emperor wanted Seidouzan to go against Raimon during the final game- and he possibly couldn’t have expected that Dragon Link would take Seidouzan’s place. And going back to the ship, we can see that there would be blooming tension between Kurosaki and Senguuji at this point. Additionally, Kurosaki didn’t seem that fazed by the withdrawal of his team- which oddly could point to two things. Either that Kurosaki knew about Senguuji’s team(pretty far fetched I know) or that it’s just in Kurosaki’s nature to be calm about these things. He provides a foil for Gouenji even though they have similar playing styles and Hissatsu moves. His calm nature parallels Gouenji’s in Ina11, and I feel like Kurosaki being added into InaGo- is another one of Level 5′s characters with undiscovered character potential. That could also be why he became so popular and reappeared in Resistance Japan. (Also he seems adorably arrogant but that’s about it)

Sorry for the short length, again I wish there was a bit more content for me to analyze.

Tired of accidentally starting romances you did not mean to activate? I hear ya. One of the best things about the later Dragon Age game is that they indicate when you are entering or ending a romance. So, I decided to do the same for DAO. I went through all the relevant dialogue options and marked them. The key, as it were, is thus:

  • ((flirt)): Activates the romance.
  • ((break up)): Ends the romance.
  • ((turn down)): Keeps the romance from happening.

Now. I know I’m gonna get this question immediately so let me answer it right away. Some dialogue options that can activate or end a romance will only work under certain condition.

An example would be if your warden tells Alistair: “You’re a prince. Somehow I find that very… thrilling.” if Alistair feels neutral or worse towards you, this line won’t activate the romance, and you’ll know if you’re in that situation because that dialogue option won’t have ((flirt)) appended on it.

And, like with my bi mod, there will be patches out the ass for this mod as well.

got such a response from the last painting that I polished up my Link and Dragons painting. It was really fun to paint.

Was painted at my Twitch Channel RAJart (https://www.twitch.tv/rajart) and will stream quite often over the summer, so feel free to follow and stop by for some soothing art streams

And, if you want to purchase it, I got it up on RedBubble for now: here! (the original is 8in x 12in so I’d be wary of ordering it any bigger than that size. I don’t know how well RedBubble scales images)

30 Days of Zelda — Day 26

High atop this island’s peak lives the
spirit of the skies…a great dragon by the
name of Valoo.

You must see this dragon and request
from him a jewel called Din’s Pearl.

Ask the people of the Rito tribe who inhabit
this island about how to see the dragon. —
King of Red Lions

Confession:  Disclaimer: I am not Cis, and generally think trans headcanons are great. But using the ritual as an metaphor for transition, or that Fenris had a different birthname as evidence that he is trans makes me really uneasy. It’s equating something that was not consensual, extremely traumatic, and had a negative impact on his selfworth with gender identity and enforcing the idea that identity and trauma are linked
