How about Kanya's art from asylum stone that about right as well?
Not my favorite, no.

Huh......kind of figured that was more human looking than even the bestiary version.

I do think it's interesting that earlier in the thread, people were arguing that you can't paint all the people who complain about Sarkeesian, GamerGate, what have you as misogynists, because the people behind the death/rape threats are an extreme viewpoint that doesn't reflect gamers

But some of those same people think you can paint all feminists as bad, because of a few perhaps extreme individuals

That's a pretty interesting and informative pattern right there.

I would point out people on the opposite side are doing the same thing. I've concluded most discusion on the topic is generally going in circles with both sides pointing at the opposing sides most extreme elements and using them as a way to dismiss them.

And here's some videos responding to each of the Tropes series.

Without actually watching these, this list kind of points at what I was saying earlier:

These video titles, by calling themselves things like "Feminism versus FACTS" and "Why 'Feminism' Posions EVERYTHING," belie the fact that they're not interested in having an actual conversation, but in accusing Anita Sarkeesian of lying and insulting her as "poison." If they had actual points to argue, or were interested in having an actual conversation, they'd present and interpret their evidence without relying on this accusatory language. You'd have a hard time convincing me that these "responses" are little more than mean-spirited attacks.

Actually you really really should watch them there the things that turned my opinion for being pro Anita to against

Right, well, I can see this is going nowhere fast.

So, let's just go in a completely different direction that pertains to the topic at hand: instead of (or in addition to, whatever) watching Dr. Sommers' video about sexism in video games that doesn't really go into many specifics, why not watch Anita Sarkeesian's videos? They do a great job of pointing out and giving in-depth explanations of prevalent and pervasive sexism in video games.

Because they really arent they cherry pick facts, leave a lot of things out of context? Heck I was for her videos to begin with till several of the inconsitencies were pointed out (Which you wont find on her you tube videos because she disabled comments)

Whats the art for each chapter opener like? (Genric or Iconic getting owned type?)

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

As said before ran 2 groups through it first group would have failed on the second question (All would have automaticly answerd yes to whether redemption could be achieved) but modified it for that one because one character had the trait that made them Iomedae's daughter and the idea that she would slap her own daughter around or mute her for possibly talking back made me very uneasy (In all honesty having a character end up being Iomedae's child in general auomaticly makes that entire section none workable as written)

Second group would by themselves failed the first question (None of the main party members had any ranks knowledge religion instead they had one of the NPC'S handle those checks but as shown below that in itself would create it's own problems.) and again would have failed on the second question.

Another reason the second group would be pretty problamatic is that the Npc they relied on for info like knowledge religion was a redeemed Nurah so as written would have been a no win situation if she diddent go they would have failed 2 of 3 questions if she had they would still have failed the second question (Which in itself would have completly destroyed there redeeming of her)

Yes but the fact I have to do that to make sure it is a none combat encounter is very problematic. At the end of the day my players all agreed that as written Iomedae dosent come across as a Lg goddess of Justice and honour (One actually asking me if this was another paladins of asmodeus moment)

Perhaps... but again... look at her role—she's a goddess of honor and justice, yes, and she IS good aligned, yes... but she's not a "goddess of good."

Which is, of course, semantics, but that's what the internet is for.

Well even at that as mentioned before you actually encounter her in the very first book (Admitadly in a dream/vision but dont think that would affect anything.) and her personality is a complete 180 turn on how she acts later.

A detailed look at Dr. Sommers, her claims, and the data referenced.

This is really, really good stuff. Thank you.

"Really really Good stuff", except where it doesn't connect the points.

I agree with argument that there's a gender gap between hardcore and casual gamers and with the existence of a difference between the two classifications.

I'll even agree at least that there is no evidence that video games cause sexism or sexist attitudes and provisionally that millennials are less prejudiced.

None of this says that the games more frequently played by the hardcore gamers aren't sexist and that the sexism in those games, while they may not make those gamers more sexist, might still be part of the reason there is a gender gap.
Games not causing sexism certainly doesn't justify sexism in games. Nor does it justify the appalling abuse of some feminist commentators.

What really is the point of this again? Not quite shooting down a strawman, but not really on target either.

I think the point is that a lot of the evidence brought foreward that video games are sexist is frankly untrue or heavily misreported.

to Clarify I do think there is a problem with sexism in parts of the industry but I dont think that problem has much to do with the games themself.

Sending Scotland broke is how the English forced the union in the first place. See the Darien disaster.

Um, I think they sent themselves broke with Darien. The Act of Union was England bailing Scotland out. The Scots were quite grateful at the time - well, the Scottish ruling classes, anyway.

Actually, Darien is a classic example of how it can be perilous to be a small country. It's not all that different from Ireland and Iceland.

Yeah As a Scott I was taught this and it is exactlly what happend. Scotlad spent a fortune trying to set up a colony and well lets just say it did not work out well at all.

More to do with public support and pressure, perhaps.

Strikes on ISIL in Iraq started before the beheadings (of US journalists, not of Iraqis) and there's been talk of expanding to Syria since then.

yeah but I seem to recall that before the journalists were killed there was a more lukewarm feel towards it all.

No, I'd imagine not. Obama's all about the lean, mean, drone strike and JSOC assassins machine.

The best bet, of course, would be for the U.S. to stay out of this conflict altogether. ISIL is a direct result of America's wars and policies - just as al-qaeda, the previous bogeyman, was. Have we learned nothing from history, here?

Fearmongering the US into yet another war.

Everything is of course the US's fault. I know.

Most of those fearmongers cited are committed to bashing Obama for not doing enough to stop ISIL yet, while trying to avoid having to vote on authorizing anything, so that they can bash Obama for doing too much later on.

JohnLocke wrote:

I'm glad you accept America's responsibility in spreading war and death around the world. That's progress!

Who cares who's bashing Obama? When he arrogates the powers of war to himself, bypassing congress (who are pathetically supine, that's true) then he deserves every syllable of rebuke. ISIL poses no threat to the US - why get involved? What's the strategic interest here? Neutralizing a "future threat"? Protecting Israel? Keeping the money flowing to the "defence" industries?

Congress is not supine. That's not the point. Congress is actively avoiding responsibility while simultaneously attacking the President for taking the responsibility and not doing so.

As for who cares about the bashing, that's the motivation for the fearmongering you linked to. Far more than attempting to drum up war, it's about attacking Obama.

What's the strategic interest? Shutting down a force that's disrupting an entire strategically important region. Or at least

It wouldn't be racist it would be specist(although I am not 100% sure that specist would be the proper term because a construct is neither a race nor a species, you could then call it lifist)... whether it is a dick move or not would generally depend on the gaming table, wouldn't it? What goes at your table vs. mine is up to your gaming group and conversely up to mine.

As a side note, you should probably refrain from saying people are racist anyway, which is prejudicial, by the way and I just was bringing up an interesting point, which may or may not be plain semantics anyways... :)

On the side, since Pathfinder is a Roleplaying Game, I would also say that especially in the first adventure if you have a character from anywhere outside of Numera or even those within, it would be legitimate to treat a construct like a machine until the ice has been finally broken, an esprit de corps if you will has been established

except isnt the point of androids that they look more human than machine therefore at first glance they would appear as either a male or female human with strange tattoes.

Separate questions:

Assuming the Seven Swords of Sin module isn't retconned (a possibility considering it's origin as an attempt to build the room with the highest kill count), are the Council of Truth related to the Technic League of Numeria?

Could they be a rival group that attempted to secure technology and then those from Numeria wiped them out?

Possibly even a splinter faction of the original Technic League that got driven out?

Is there any chance that the Council of Truth is involved with Iron Gods?

Or do you think the Council of Truth should be retconned out of Golarion to be replaced with the Techninc League?

Council of truth are mentioned in the city of secrets book and Shatterd star adventure path so not much chance of them being retconned out (Also have nothing to do with the technic league or Numeria)
