They wouldn’t say “Father of two meets world leaders today”
They’d say “President Obama meets world leaders today”.
They wouldn’t say “Father of three founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
They’d say “Bill Gates founds one of the most successful modern computer businesses.”
Get your shit right and use women’s names, not the number of kids they have.
dat practical armor
I love every aspect of this.
And I would play her in a heartbeat.
They’re really really trying with the new edition. The iconic fighter is also black, and this is the illustration for the “soldier” background:
and this is the new language about character gender:
So the language isn’t ideal but the content is really nice, A-minus for clearly well-intentioned effort. Also, the new iconic Paladin is a Half-Orc, if that means anything to you. I thought it was a nice touch.
Not to be outdone, the new splatbook for Pathfinder has an explicitly in-canon transgender character and a potion of permanent gender swap. Which, yes, totally enforces the binary gender notion but they’re making an effort. Also I should point out that Pathfinder has been pretty good about racial representation in their art all along,
On a broader level, I think tabletop RPG’s have been better about representation and rejecting racism and sexism than Fantasy-genre video games for a long time, but people mostly see images of Warcraft female armor and stuff like that, and so that’s what they associate with D&D too.
