highlights from my d&d campaign
  • Me, the DM: You see a dark elf--a drow--standing before the statue. And up on the ceiling, you see a giant spider, twice the height of a normal human.
  • Wizard, OOC: Did you make fucking Magic Brian???
  • Me: I DIDN'T MEAN TO!! THERE'S JUST NOT A WHOLE LOT YOU CAN FIGHT AT LEVEL 2!!!

ok ok but …. asian characters…. middle eastern characters… characters of mixed race… i could probably write a huge long post about this, because listen i’ll pay for some well developed characters beyond …. i can’t believe i’m saying this on a ghetsis blog black & white characters ( god every time i write anything that has black & white in it i just ??????? mmmwhatcha say ), like character development & diversity is so important, not only in race, but i think also in spiritual / religious views or lack thereof!! the world of human beings is a spectrum of skin tones & has so many belief system variants that if turned to music could make thousands of symphonies good lord i love exploring that sort of thing!! 

write characters like the world is, there are infinite possibilities out there for us!! let’s put our character-building minds to work!! but, don’t forget, be respectful with what you write!! if you don’t know about something, research it!! or reach out to others, i bet there are a lot of writers who would be honored to help others understand different points of view!! 

i’m such a sap about character development & i love diversity in characters, that gives me life hjksgadsg…

Griffin: Avi is just white as a sheet, he’s paralyzed in fear.

Travis: I slap him.

Griffin: He doesn’t respond to you, he’s just. Paralyzed.

Travis: I slap him again.

Griffin: … He doesn’t move or respond to that ‘cause he’s- he’s paralysed.

Clint: I slap him.

Griffin: Okay you just take turns slapping Avi. He doesn’t move because he is literally paralyzed.
