  • Hey guys, so we had Session 192 two weeks ago, but there did not wind up being any journals. Nature of the beast, for the most part; Doc’s player was unable to show, and we did not hear from him until we had like 30 minutes left of the game, so the main thing that got done was some packing, some RP, and a lot of kibitzing while we waited.

    Short version of the RP would be everyone packed over Thursday. Alexia was super grumpy. Sara and Tatum would up talking with her awhile. Sara talked about her philosophy of life. Tatum apparently tried to convert Alexia into being an anarchist,...

  • Thanks! Yes Changeling gives us a lot of interesting options for kiths and Seemings and such, and tweaking it to make just the right monster seems cool. I enjoy Urban Fantasy more than horror, and while I certainly do have some horror in games, a lot of it is Urban Fantasy, and I see very little issue, with that. It makes for fun games. If you wind up putting up logs or anything like that let me know.

  • Jacob is quiet but a participant.

    Insincere Marguerite's merits were picked out of Kithbook: Sluagh, both her older and newer, and the group as a whole okayed the first one. Calamity's was an effect that was formalized as a merit after the game started...we had played loose with game effects at first but decided to make it a merit. Gawain's man of steel merit was conceived at that point. When we hit Wyrd 7 I asked if anyone wanted any major changes and Puddle was picked, as was Lori's flight.

    But I never gave out a list or anything. Does that help?

    As an aside, Any LGBTQ+ discussion is welcome in this thread. If you have specific questions on/for Transgender people because you are confused or not sure the word to use or anything like that, there is a thread here that is specifically for answering questions from people who are honestly not sure about one thing or the other. While rude or trolling behavior will be moderated like anywhere else, there is a little more room there if you are not sure what to say or how to ask a question. That thread is not a place for news or general discussion of trans folks and our rights, that goes here or...

    There comes a time where you have to stop worrying about what bigots think. They got used to mixed race bathrooms and locker rooms when they had to. They can get used to putting all the women in the women's locker room and the men in the men's.

    Agreed, I am not crazy about being called a homosexual. Better as an adjective....

    Transgender as an adjective is acceptable, like "A Transgender woman". Using as "Transgendered" is incorrect and offensive, be it as an adjective or verb. As a noun is it not acceptable, just like Male and Female are not.

    So "A Transgender woman" is correct.
    "A Transgendered woman" is incorrect.
    "A Transgender" or "Some Transgenders" is incorrect.
    "A Transgender Female" is incorrect, though "A transgender female human" is correct.

    Does this help? I realize it can be confusing....

  • A show, people start practicing new acts, Calamity has a plan.

    Journals are a bit more Spartan as holiday craziness and work stuff meant everyone had less time than usual. Plenty of good writing though.

    I confess that I’m not in the best of moods right now, so this entry might be a bit terse when compared to my typically ebullient prose. The motley is formulating a plan to deal with the Hedge monster thingummy, and the specifics of said plan have me… anxious? Angry? Maybe somewhere in between… is “angrious”...

    Women are already very cautious. This will not make them more. Many women, probably most, trans or cis talk about this. We all have to worry about men we meet, because most men don't do anything, and stick up for their friends. And the vast majority of women have at least been harassed if not assaulted. I knew this, pre-transition, but even so I did not know how true it was until transition, and whispered warnings, even anxious ones. And the behavior of some female acquaintances, one in particular, makes so much sense now while it puzzled before.

    Bear in mind hormones and surgery change a lot of that.

    If the transgender person is medically transitioning, a transwoman is notably less strong than a cis man. Many (not all) have broader shoulders than many (not all) women, but strength is the first to go on Estrogen. Similarly a trans man is going to be much stronger than a cis woman, all presuming hormones. As someone on hormones I can tell you my lifting power has notably decreased, and I am notably less strong than I was. Similarly, on hormones weight distribution changes and breasts for trans women appear, so the body shape...

  • pologies for no update two weeks ago, we had a rash of illness that left much of the group unable to play. This is from about a month ago. Hopefully these updates will stop being monthly, though we shall have to see how the Christmas holidays play out. I won’t be missing any more Balance of Shadows sessions if I can help it. Anyway, enjoy.

    “Good morning sleepyhead.” Sara poked her head into the room after knocking. “Well, afternoon, really.”

    “Sara...?” Emily woke up slowly. She looked around disoriented....

    The role of gender is a complex issue. I am super binary. My gender is very important to me. If gender is purely a social concept, it dismisses my lived experience. I want it to be noticed. I don't want it abolished. I have suffered, spent money, been in a fight and experienced pain for it. Not because I want to wear dresses or make up; I do that because it makes me look and feel feminine. There are some who are genderfluid, or non-Binary, and that is good for them, and I say that not to be dismissive. I respect them, and ask for respect in return. My wife is also quite binary. She is also a woman....

  • Molly takes the final plunge to unlock her lost memories. Yvette wakes beside a woman she has loved, and hated, for a very long time. Chalcedony returns to the Dream House.

    Note that the journals are particularly disparate in their coverage, focusing on very different things.

    I woke up late yesterday morning held tight in a dragon’s embrace, like a princess in a really weird fantasy tale. Soon Hee’s attitude wasn’t possessive; it was more protective… kind of like Joan, actually. Who knew that a dragon...
