i saw a post the other day that was like “ur all so fake u talk about wanting a movie with poc and lgbt characters but yall ignoring powerrangers” and it just rubbed me the wrong way like dude even if i myself was starring in power rangers i would not care about it at all it is Not My Thing dont force ur thing on other people, diversity doesnt make something universally appealing
Context: My fighter is the only Lawful Neutral character on a team consisting of a True Neutral halfling monk, a Chaotic Neutral tiefling warlock, and a Neutral Good half-elf ranger with a bad impression of laws in general. They’re all endearingly nuts in their own way, and, well. He fits in like soy sauce on mashed potatoes.
Warlock: *after surviving the shipwreck that nearly killed all of us* So you worked for the people transporting us?
Fighter: Money doesn’t grow on trees. Of course I was.
Ranger: You know it was a slave ship right?
Fighter: You were getting transported to prison! The only thing enslaving you are the consequences of your crimes.
Monk: You not gonna like, wrangle us into line?
Monk: I mean, you were a guard, right? You arrest people.
Fighter: We are in the middle of a jungle. What laws could you possibly be breaking?
Ranger: *OOC* I roll to see what impossible feats of physics-defying tricks I can do to piss this guy off.
Warlock: So are we going back to jail if we get to a place where there’s a jail?
Fighter: I mean, they feed you in most prisons. Terrible food, but it’s free.
Warlock: …Damn he right.
Ranger: Do you arrest people even when they’re doing the right thing?
Fighter: Everyone should be held accountable for their actions regardless of intentions.
Ranger: Easy for you to say.
Fighter: Listen, I got banished from my country and disowned from my family because I was fucking my country’s Crown Prince. I deserve the rights to say this like it was easy.
Ranger: …Okay but that’s– Okay, you couldn’t have had good intentions about that.
Fighter: I think there were some good ones, but then he took off his shirt and I forgot what they were.
Monk: And I thought my getting kicked out of my temple for fapping during prayer was dramatic.
DM: …Oh. :-)
Ranger: You don’t have many friends, do you?
Fighter: I had some but the murder hobos fucking killed them all. :)
Warlock: Well at least you aren’t lecturing us on honor or anything.
Fighter: Honor is reliability. That’d like chanting Celestial to a demon.
Warlock: …Not all tieflings.
Soy sauce on mashed potatoes: weird taste, but acceptable.
Some doodles of one of my many tabletop babies, Wendelin Fesenmaier (a ghoul who has regained his conscience and uses magic to disguise his horrific appearance, but who retains his uncontrollable hunger for flesh—he tries to be good, really, he tries!!)~ Someday I’ll reboot him. Perhaps soon? >:3
