Despite knowing how Julian looks, in my head he looks like Tuvok. Descriptions of him just morph into a black elf with a serious face, every time.
I'm not going to be able to picture him any other way now.

To me Mother Bear is a literal bear, no matter how many times Ice says otherwise. She's an awakened bear that teaches on the island and nobody bats an eye.

I need some fan art of a bear wearing combat gear, complete with a tiiiny helmet, firing a plastic toy rifle.

I'm so down to clown, and I can make it weekly.

Jump on into the discord and send me a message. If you're not on discord the link should be in the first post. I want to see if I can get it running this week.

Jagadaishio and Magnusth were also interested, I can wrangle five players and I imagine that if someone can't make it, with four we could run a game anyway.

Still writing the next scene.

Someone re-write Mother Bear's sections of the first three books, and replace all her dialogue with a bear doing bear things. Thanks.

Random question not directly related but is this shadowrun realm the same as the new CD Projekt Red cyberpunk game?
Or they both just have alot of similarities?

Theyíre different. Cyberpunk 2077 is based on the Cyberpunk 2020 brand, which has neither monsters nor magic, just humans and tech.

No, they're just similar.

The Cyberpunk [insert year here] universe predates SR by about a year, both were heavily inspired by the then-new popular genre of fiction, cyberpunk. For starters, SR doesn't normally have flying cars.

Funny, I was going for a different Star Trek character - Dr. Bashir.

Also, Fuzzy reminds me of Fie Claussell from Legend of Heroes - definitely looks and attitude, sort of backstory.

Having a problem with writing lately. Too much awful poo poo in the news. However, I feel like I am positively effecting people by writing neat stories here and wish to continue to do so. It's just difficult to summon the energy sometimes as I engage with politics.

Still, writing this is a good point in my life. It's a big part of what gives me purpose and keeps me going. I'll try and get up a post soon. It's just been taxing these last few days.

That said, if you're looking for ways to get involved, please do so. However big or small it is. Kids are in concentration camps. That is nothing but naked fascism. And when confronted by the fascists, you don't back down. You show them your teeth, By failing to stand up you will be picked apart one by one. History has shown us this.

Now is a pretty good time for activism or donation is what I'm saying. Either through politics in swing states, because you can phone bank from out of state, or by donating to worthy causes or political organizations. That's if you want to dip in a toe into activism, and honestly, any effort is good. Or you could get involved with your local leftist organization to help resist fascism. Or you could just talk to people. However you want to get involved, if you want to, please do. These concentration camps for kids aren't an end state. They're another step in an ongoing process. It won't stop on its own. It has to be opposed and resisted. Not by politicians. Not by merely voting. By getting involved.

Be the hero of your own story. Don't rely on others to do the job for you. Be your own hero. Participate. Even if the work is thankless.

If there's anything that I've conveyed by telling this story, it's that you don't have to save the world. It's too big. It's too abstract. You can make a dent and do your part. Small choices make for big impacts in the aggregate.

I also kinda feel bad now, because I've been using the World Cup to disengage from politics these past two weeks.

Yeah, its probably the coward's way out, and, I don't want to deal with this latest fiasco of children being locked away from their parents, and some politicians having the audacity of calling it 'kinda like summer camp'; I don't want to infect my brain with this right now.

Does no one else think that isolating all of our allies, to the point of having them all coordinate against us because of a threatening, looming 'Trade War', is of concern?

The last time there was an Eight-Nation Alliance, things didn't turn out so well for the instigator.

Actually, going to have fun and retreating from politics is absolutely necessary from time to time. You can only engage with politics for so long before becoming jaded and numb. Disengaging is necessary for any sort of long term engagement. It's a marathon, not a sprint.

There are times where I force myself to take a break from politics, because it is amazingly easy to grow numb and check out. Again, this is a tactic of the fascist. It's to wear out the opposition. Remember that to the most awful of people, this is energizing. They can fight all day because they take sick pleasure in the misery of others. People on the defense don't have that option. You need to cycle out to recuperate.

Engage when you can. Retreat when you're tired. Engage, retreat, repeat. This is how you stay engaged long term.

Still, please get involved. It doesn't have to be big. Donate time or money or both if you can. Every little bit helps.
