I don't seem to suffer from trypophobia; actually, I find many of the holes-in-flesh/body horror images oddly fascinating in a hard-to-look-away fashion. However, this may be due to my crosswired brain's photic sneeze reflex.

I have also had a lot of pet cats, so my lack of trypophobia may just be another symptom of toxoplasmosis.

I blame Cosmo for his latest creations, the dust pugwampis. Oh sure, having to constantly clean up after their light dusting of dust has been a mild annoyance. But last night, I finally was able to rent Frozen and watch it for the first time. Shortly after Elsa was introduced, I started to sniff and my eyes started to water; by the time the music swelled as she hit the first chorus of "Let It Go", I had a stream of tears running down my face.

Curse your dust pugwampis for their Over 9000 invisible dust cloud attack!

It had to be dust. My levels in jaded cynic PrC give me a +8 on saves versus the Feels.

Of the three critters I submitted, only one made the cut. Which is still darn good considering how tough the competition was for this issue.

(The critter that did get picked is also the most mechanically complicated. Hopefully, my editor won't be cursing my name by the time he/she is finished. {fingers crossed})

Congrats to everyone that got in, and a round of applause for everyone that submitted but didn't make it in this time. Don't feel bad though; there's only a finite amount of articles that can be squeezed into an issue, especially when it has a hard page cap like this PaizoCon issue. There just wasn't room for all the great articles.

I blame Cosmo for his pugwampi cultists spamming the web servers. If they were properly supervised, they'd instead be hacking Numerian androids into an overclocked botnet to mine SchadCoin.

People can change. People HAVE to change. We're not the same people we were a few years ago. I've met people who were disgusting bigots who later changed their minds and their ways. Some got even worse, even in the face of proof that they were wrong. We all evolve over time, some for the better, some for far worse. As a result of this alone, we can't all move in lockstep, nor can we simply cut off those who aren't toeing the line. Everyone is at different places along the path. There has to be some kind of allowance for disagreement, change and evolution.

But Eich didn't display any movement; he simply entrenched deeper. As thejeff points out, he didn't even bother to offer a real attempt at an apology... if he'd done that, if he'd mentioned some BS that "he was still evolving on the issue", and donated a measly $2000 or so to some LGBT or civil rights organization, I think people would have given him an actual chance to walk the walk. I would have, even as naive as that makes me sound.

But even that was baby step too far for him to take. He would rather leave a black mark on all of his years of hard brilliant work at Mozilla than make a token gesture of apology, conciliation, and personal growth.

Maybe I'm in the wrong about where I draw the line with Eich. Maybe I'm wrong about even drawing a line. Compassion and empathy toward someone whose actions treat me as subhuman... that takes patience and energy, two things I have in very very short supply this month, especially with the return of my Black Dog. It's draining to be reminded every day that a large chunk of the population thinks people like me are deviants and corrupting influences, subhumans not worthy of compassion or happiness or basic equality. I don't offer this as an excuse, just as an explanation. I'm so very tired.

wholehearted agreement.

Frankly, in Eich's case, that's utter b@!&%$&$.

I have been listening to those who opposed Eich's promotion to CEO. They weren't opposed to Eich because he seems to personally support the official Roman Catholic Church's position on LGBT equality and same-sex marriage. They weren't opposed to Eich's on-the-record personal funding of anti-LGBT politicians. While Eich was largely known to have supported Prop 8 and probably voted for it, he was until recently just the Chief Technical Officer for Mozilla.

But when Eich became CEO of Mozilla, he faced greater responsibility and a higher standard. Eich personally helped fund the Prop 8 Campaign, its vicious slandering of decent loving LGBT couples and parents, and its attempt to nullify their legal right to a civil marriage. As CEO, he would be the public face of Mozilla, an organization which has openly pledged and worked to be fully LGBT-inclusive. As CEO, he would be the leader of all the LGBT Mozilla employees and contractors he had donated funds to legally codify them as second-class citizens. And after repeatedly given chance upon chance, he resolutely refused even to acknowledge or apologize for the harm he had helped to occur.

Eich went far beyond mere disagreement and has demonstrated no attempts at evolution on the position that LGBT people are entitled to the same rights and protections as everyone else. His actions are one of a bigot, and a bigot has no place as CEO of an inclusive pioneer like Mozilla.

Edit: If Eich had helped fund a Prop 8 that criminalized and banned interracial marriages, would we even be having this discussion? Would the interracial couples and their allies now be the bad guys for pressuring Mozilla to remove Eich?

Welp, competition is always pretty fierce to get in, but I just submitted the "fennec kitsune" for Wayfinder #11, along with a full brushtail fennec write-up (briefly mentioned in the Dark Markets: Katapesh book).

{fingers crossed} If they are approved, they'll be in the issue available at PaizoCon. If they aren't approved, I'll post them on the web and link to them here.

Morning all,

So today's the day I talk to my wife. I'm not sure what she's going to say or what I'm going to say. I'm going to listen as best as possible, but I'm going to speak up more than the last time.

I can't believe I've been living on a friends spare bed for just over a week. It still feels like a dream, that part. I did some role playing last night with my friends, who did their best to give me a worst case scenario and I was able to get some things out, even if I still don't know what to say today exactly. This morning I ran into my friend on the way to work, and confessed I didn't know what to do if things went south tonight. He said the shortest, wisest thing he could have when he told me that if I had to rebuild my life then that's what I would have to do, and he offered to help.

I don't know how to say it in the original Chinese, but it's true - one can never have too many friends.

Best wishes for whatever is a good outcome for you both.

It'd be a great character hook for a willing player and GM:

Sir Oftenwrong: ...

- or -

Scenario 2:
(Secretly Evil) Cleric: Ready for another atonement?
Sir Oftenwrong: Sure!
(Secretly Evil) Cleric: {instead of atonement, casts another layer of fiendish soulbindings} It lifts my heart to see a true paladin, one who remains focused on the big picture and Greater Good. These are difficult times, and the people need real heroes who aren't afraid to get their hands a little dirty to defeat Evil.
{hesitates} I... I've been having dreams for a while now... dreams of a great hero who would take the difficult steps necessary to rid the lands of Evil for all time. At first I just thought it was naive hopes playing out in my sleeping mind, but now... now, I believe these dreams are a true message from [our deity]. And I believe that hero... is you.
Sir Oftenwrong: {stunned}
(Secretly Evil) Cleric: {draws sword, offers it in outstretched arms, and kneels before the "paladin"} Sir Oftenwrong, I humbly offer my sword and magic in your Crusade.
Sir Oftenwrong: This... this is a lot to consider.
(Secretly Evil) Cleric: I'm certain you are the Chosen One, but it has been said that often those chosen are the last to know. Perhaps tonight our [our deity] will finally share His glorious vision with you?
Sir Oftenwrong: Perhaps...
(Secretly Evil) Cleric: Please, you, and your friends waiting outside, are welcome to stay here in our rectory tonight. If you are still uncertain in the morning, I can study and prepare commune so you can receive His wisdom directly from one of His trusted servants.
