Date finally happened! He's definitely a really sweet guy. We talked for about 90 minutes. The only reason we stopped was because I said I needed to get going.

During the whole date we talked a little bit about our military service. He briefly mentioned that he is twice divorced and has 3 kids. Then we talked about Dungeons and Dragons and Pathfinder. A lot. We both play and we could have talked for hours.

What we never talked about was me being trans. It never once came up. I was ready for basic questions, but he asked nothing. It was really nice to just be Cindy instead of Trans Cindy.

We hugged when we left and we're going to have a second date.
I'm incredibly happy!


That is wonderful!

So glad you met someone who is smart enough to know that people 'selfs', not adjectives.

Congrats! It's so nice to just be instead of having yet another thing to worry about.

Hey folks! Apologies for the self-promo, but I've got a new novel coming out, and I was hoping that if folks around here liked Death's Heretic and The Redemption Engine, y'all might be interested in checking it out! Before you ask—no, the book is unfortunately not a third Salim novel. It's not even fantasy. But it *is* the best thing I've ever written. It's a queer young adult romance all about falling for the boy who stole your shot at stardom, and I'm extremely proud of it. Here's the pitch:

When David quit his band, he missed his shot at fame. For the past two years, he’s been trapped in an ordinary Seattle high school life, working summers for his dad’s construction business while his former best friends Chance and Eli became the hottest teen pop act in America.

Then Eli dies. Suddenly David and Chance are thrown back into contact, forcing David to rediscover all the little things that once made the two of them so close, even as he continues to despise the singer’s posturing and attention-hogging. As old wounds break open, an unexpected kiss leads the boys to trade frenemy status for a confusing, tentative romance―one Chance is desperate to keep out of the spotlight. Though hurt by Chance’s refusal to acknowledge him publicly, David decides their new relationship presents a perfect opportunity for him to rejoin the band and claim the celebrity he's been denied. But Chance is all too familiar with people trying to use him.

As the mixture of business and pleasure becomes a powder keg, David will have to choose: Is this his second chance at glory? Or his second chance at Chance?

The book is set in Seattle, and while not autobiographical draws pretty heavily on my own life, so it's a deeply personal project. Pre-orders are crucial—it's seriously bonkers how few pre-orders can make or break a book's chances in the eyes of a store like Barnes & Noble—o I hope if it sounds good to you you'll consider pre-ordering!

Thanks, everybody!

So this may be a dumb question, but...

I get to the 'tired of cishet nonsense' level really fast nowadays when people rub me the wrong way and some such has led me to start looking at alternatives to org play with total strangers.

Would anyone here be willing (by which I mean eagerly excited, and would be very keen to pitch in to build) in an LGBTQ+ specific org play discord group set up for online play?

I'm not particularly looking for organized play, but I'm interested in an LGBTQ+ centered TTRPG discord group/server.

(currently wanting really badly to play some PF2e)


Yeah, organized play has really never been my cup of tea, either.

I'd also be interested in this for both PFS/SFS as well as some longer campaign play.

The first thing you need is a name. Then you'll know what kind of discord server you've got.

(I did not paraphrase this line from Empire Records... much.)

Okay, I setup a little discord server. This invite is for 7 days. We can either host it there or create another server for the end result. But, it will give anyone interested a place to at least discuss everything.

(if someone else wants to admin this they're welcome to take the reins... please? anyone?)

For what it's worth, I think it'd be fine to open the server to allies, too. Especially since it makes it easier for queer people who aren't out or haven't realized things about themselves yet. :)


I believe your friend and mine Celestial Healer is involved in one already. Let me reach out and touch someone. And oh yeah, contact Celestial Healer on this.


That rings a bell. I know I expressed interest previously and got invited to Arcane Mark and one other, but I had to leave both for unrelated reasons.

I did share such a server previously. The server owner has previously shared it publicly, so I will share it here again.

“Roll for Gender” server

I’m on Discord a lot more than I’m on Paizo these days, so I will check out Gwenn’s server!
