I don’t really agree, you can come up with all kinds of different characters even if everyone’s just a human. In fact he has, he just hasn’t imbued them with any kind of unique personalities. Most of the more involved NPCs are Sylvanians, but they’re just kind of boring. Billy is the most fun character and he wasn’t even supposed to be anything.

This. The fact that every NPC has the potential to go into a momentum-stopping Heartfelt Monologue (TM) does not play well to Griffin's strengths at all. It's why I'm starting to skip Adventure Zone until an arc is wrapped up. It makes that sort of thing much more tolerable.

I agree that it’s a weird look, but this seems like an unhealthily strong reaction to looking at someone else’s smile.

Red pill/MGTOW/Ben Shapiro followers really really hate that smile (known as the "soyboy smile") because something something feminization/decline of western culture/white genocide. Most other people don't have strong reactions to that kind of smile either way.

Okay, it seems like you're genuinely not in the know on this one. Lucky you. Let me ruin your day by telling you a bit about the dumbass world of online alt-right culture: Internet Nazis have decided that smiling with your mouth open is a sign of weakness in males (they also hate hair dyed bright colors). I know that sounds incredibly stupid, but it's true and they've made it a whole big thing for years and won't shut up about it. From what I've seen of your posting you're not a Nazi, you're just a person who thinks open mouth smiles look doofy (which I don't totally agree with, but to each their own). However, because complaining about open mouth smiling is something that has become so closely associated with internet Nazis, when you complain about open mouth smiles on the internet people might assume you are in fact a Nazi even when you're not.

It's not really fair, but "complaining about open mouth smiles" is just one of the many things Nazis have ruined by association, just like how they ruin Western Civilization as a whole.

I don't think they were talking about his smile.

Travis' neutral position is usually with his mouth hanging open.
It's weird and reasonable to comment on it without dipping into Nazism.

It's probably a contributing factor to his life-long speech impediment. I'd wager it's not on purpose at all.

Doesn't Travis have a speech impediment or a weird tongue thing or something. I can't remember. He's mentioned his open mouth thing before.

It’s not just politics where Vampire: The Masquerade – Bloodlines 2 takes a progressive approach. The character creator, which players get to use twice – once at the start to define your human aspects and then a second time later in the game to flesh out your vampire – goes way beyond basic male and female models. Body type, gender pronouns, employment history and fashion can all be toyed with for a very modular build.

I cannot wait for the Monster Factory episode on this one.

Top Hat bear = Justin
