Just touching on this point.

I'm not disagreeing with your larger point, but mainstream pornography is part of a much larger set of societal influences that cause body image issues. It's not the main culprit - I'd not even say top five - but it's still a part of how society can influence body image.

I'm speaking only about U.S. culture, by the way; I know we have an international community here, and I don't want to speak for other parts of the world. :)

However, I don't think anyone over... I dunno... 14~15 years believes that sex is like porn...

copy pasting an old experience with someone else's paladin from way back:

There was this Neutral wizard, absolutely cynical, travelling with a mostly good party. Eventually, the paladin started getting to her, all through leading by example, not through preaching directly to her. She really started to want to believe in the ideals the paladin stood for, and came to see him a symbol of good and hope that the world(which she saw as a "Sick Sad World") desperately needed.

But she still lacked the faith that those ideals could survive on their own in such a world. She started going about in secret to watch his back and clean up loose ends that she believed would wind up getting him killed. She dirtied her hands handling matters she believed the paladin couldn't, or more importantly, shouldn't. She became more and more devoted to the task of protecting him both as a person and as a symbol that couldn't afford to be sullied by what she considered necessary evils.

When the party left enemies alive, she murdered any who she believed might come looking for revenge on the paladin. If she found out about a problem that could even slightly put the paladin at risk of breaking his code, she would either cut through the problem with brutal efficiency or guide the party away from ever seeing it, consequences for anyone else be damned.

She covered her tracks well, and kept it up for a long time. But while she started off believing whole-heartedly that she was doing what was right, the guilt just started to pile up. While the paladin was sleeping the sleep of the just, she was getting anything but. Eventually the rest of the party started to notice her cracking up, and it all came out in the open when she tearfully confessed(in a church of the god she had come to believe in but whose tenets she could not find the faith to truly follow) everything she had done and why to the paladin she had turned into a sort of idol. He was horrified by what had been done for his sake and in his name, and saddened by who had done it. The wizard is full-on weeping at this point, not even daring to ask for the forgiveness she believes she doesn't deserve. The paladin(AND THE PLAYER) is shedding Manly Tears as he hugs her, forgives her without any hesitation, and then gently places her under arrest. THE DAMN GM IS TEARING UP AT THIS POINT.

The party is shocked when they learn the details in-character, and a good chunk of the campaign after that was dedicated towards the wizard's trial(with the paladin and most of the party serving on her defense) and her long and arduous parole(under the paladin's watchful eye) and struggle towards redemption. She eventually made it to NG.

The paladin and wizard were married by the end of the campaign, but that was an even longer and bumpier road.

I've finally managed to rack of some experiences of my own playing Liath in Wrath of the Righteous. Will try to get that written up tonight. Stuck on a phone atm

Jem, I remember talking about Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld with you about a million years ago, but I suppose this question should be to Blue for mentioning the art: Are you aware that Donna Barr, who illustrated Lace & Steel, has been drawing comics for years and years?

I'm exhausted on this topic and the very real harm this law enables through other venues, but I want to say to any folks from Indianapolis:

Every time I've been to GenCon, I was struck by how warm, welcoming, and open the atmosphere around it was. The city itself was definitely a big part of it. I've had some wonderful experiences there, and getting to visit an event and place with such an accepting crowd definitely helped me make my way out of the closet. I've been regretting being unable to make it this year already, now even moreso.

This ugly situation has positioned everything in such a way that now whatever GenCon does to protect its attendees it will inadvertently punish Indianspolis itself, the very people who protested the loudest against this bill they didn't want.

Whatever happens, I don't bear any ill will or resentment to your folks. And if GenCon does move, I'm honestly going to miss getting to visit.

You've always been a gracious host in my experience. You deserve better than what your governor has foisted upon you. We all did.

I'm really going to miss that Steak 'n Shake. And that comic shop near the Soldiers and Sailors memorial. Heck, I'm gonna miss that memorial. Thing's awe-inspiring.

As a corollary to both the Teachable Campaign and Mary Suetopia:

IT'S OKAY! THE BOOK SAYS THEY'RE EVIL

Do you not like "Always Chaotic Evil" as a trope? Do you actually like some nuance or, you know, character motivation in your stories? Do you understand why the walkers stopped being the primary antagonists on Walking Dead by season 2? This is not the place for you. Always Chaotic Evil means every mission will be, "Go Here. Kill Bad Guys. Collect Reward." Are you being sent on two-days' travel to kill a group of orcs or goblins that haven't actually done anything in the story? Does that make you feel a little icky? Get that SJW crap outta here! As long as the book says it's an EVIL race you can do anything from genocide to torture to skull-redacteding its children to death in front of it and it's a-okay! They're always chaotic evil, anyway - even if that explanation LITERALLY MAKES NO FREAKING SENSE. Now roll for encounters on your way back to collect your reward from the 'kindly and benevolent' Duke that hired you to kill sentient beings as a form of pest control.

THE ANTI-SUEPOCALYPSE

You'd really better not want to play (insert race here, usually gnomes). The DM hates Gnomes and will it make clear how very much he hates gnomes and hates you for choosing a gnome. Prepare for every single NPC you encounter to revile you, refuse to sell to you, and generally treat you like crap. This doesn't really make sense storywise like it might with an Orc or Drow - but whatever. The populace is totally cool of a party traveling with a member of a race known for murder and deceit, but you dare include anything lighthearted in their grim fantasy world and they get really bent out of shape.

Alternatively,

We're the good guys. No, really

This happens a lot in games where the DM forces everyone to be good, or at the very least, no evil alignments. You really won't know it from how the game is played. Wholesale slaughter of anyone who isn't good is very much encouraged. It doesn't matter how it happens. You can regularly cheat, lie, hold their loved ones hostage, who cares? It's their fault for being evil. Only paladins are held to a higher standard in these games, and as a result, no one plays a paladin because they actually have consequences for their actions.

Solution: Point out gently to all involved that good involves more altruism to all than punishment of those who are not good.

On a related note, Terry Goodkind would be the worst GM.

Just checking before dipping into it but:

Are the drow involved in this AP more of the Always Chaotic Evil variety or is it open to the non-evil, non-hostile variety, through the adventure itself or support material? Just trying to get a handle on which direction it leans and how hard, basically.

Thanks!

Your assumption that how you play is how "the vast majority of PCs" are played has probably already been covered earlier in this very thread.

My PCs don't fit that description, nor do I encourage/incentivize that mode of play in games I run. And given the number of times I've succeeded in published adventures by NOT acting like a violence-first vagabond tells me that the interest in non-murderhobo-style gaming is more popular than you give it credit for.

How many adventures have you solved without using violence?
My players are pretty frequent to at least try non-violent methods first about half the time. It works somewhere between one-in-four and one-in-three.

So solving a problem with violence is fairly common then, no?

Edit: @Jiggy. Trigger didn't say violence first.

'Tis a tragic fact that our world is filled with violence. Sometimes the only answer left to us is violence, even if we endeavor to minimize it.

But that does not mean all efforts towards peaceful solutions are for nought. If anything it makes such attempts all the more important. And there are more of those who would pursue those higher means than the cynical and jaded might suggest.

And we are no one's fools. We stand ready to defend ourselves and others when the wicked assume that we are.

'Tis a vast gulf between vigilance and an embracing of violence.

There's enough room and range amongst paladins for both mercy and summary execution to be acceptable here.

The circumstances and the way the paladin goes about doing what they choose to do is what will make or break the situation. And it's going to take some unusual circumstances to protect Captain Atrocity's life. And as long as the paladin doesn't try to Jack Bauer/90's Anti-hero the situation, execution is understandable. If it's in anger, mark it down, but it should take more than that alone to drop them.

Hell, even my redemption-centric paladin who hates killing, period, would be hard pressed to show mercy. He'd probably still slap a harsh mark of justice on him and leave him to the mercy of the local populace though, unless he knew for certain that it would mean a slow torturous fate for the bandit, in which case a swift execution is being merciful.

Unintentional self-deception is actually a pretty important part of my WotR paladin's drama so I'm definitely voting "yes".

Same for feeling mundane fear. Losing both removes a lot of the human experience.

So far we've got:

An Iomedaean paladin
An Iomedaean Hellknight dropout, possibly going Vildeis, Ragathiel, or Olheon depending on how she channels her guilt
A Shelynite tiefling that is temporarily getting involved with Milani and feeling very conflicted about going slayer
A Caydenite martial artist
An Iomedaean priest

With a lot of overlap too, as they're all siblings. Those are the ones they primarily worship though.

And all the dedicated Iomedaeans are of the "law in device to good" variety, though the Hellknight will take some time to get there.

Since my homebrew world doesn't have Drow at all, I stole the whole "Elves change appearance based on their environment" thing from Golarion, and made any Elf that spends a lot of time in a rocky, mountainous, cavernous, subterranean, or otherwise heavy-on-stone environment would eventually look like a Drow, specifically because their appearance is reminiscent of gems - "skin like onyx, hair like diamond, eyes like rubies and amethysts".

Nice. Really dig that over the original skin color explanation. (love that jewel-based description too!)

My first drow character was before being exposed to Drizzt too. He was brought to the surface world by his refugee family that took begrudging shelter in a small village. He spent most of his childhood playing in the woods alone before getting involved with the local benign fey. Eventually grew up to be a "fey knight" type, taking up his friends' cause and hoping to gain the full acceptance of his neighbors.

I really hoped to eventually get a Valdemar-esque unicorn pal/mount.

Shut up. That's badass.

Never did get to actually play him as intended. I guess some if his DNA made it to my WotR paladin though. Really connected to that character at that young age.
