Welcome to the Playpen, our space for ferrety banter and whimsical snippets of things that aren't quite long enough for articles (although they might be) but that caught your eye anyway.
I don't know if skulls come in the core rules but I'm sure we can houserule something. :D
And can I be a floating skull so Shim can lose me?
But I am obviously procrastinating right now and should get back to work.
Where IS everyone? I'm the only new post in 4 days?
I am currently in a chapel writing a paper on necromantic manuscripts in the later Middle Ages. It's probably better if you don't hear from me in the next while.
But, yes, I'm happy to participate in book laundering - drop me an email :)
Rejoice, for this means another CC post at Ferretbrain in due time!
Oh it gets better. There's a movie adaptation coming out this summer. Oh joy, now we get to see His Mortal Instrument ads everywhere.
And the social justice issues you ferrets usually deal with aren't a political matter for me, but an ethical one. Of course, you can have agendas in this matter, but for me, there's not really two sides to the issue that need to be heard. There's an objective right and wrong which can easily be sussed out through empathy.
That's great, but plenty of people who feel just as strongly that there's "an objective right and wrong" about these issues come to the opposite conclusions that you probably would. Even if you consider them non-issues, when other people decide to argue for positions very different from yours about issues that actually affect your life, you don't get the option of ignoring them.
The problem I have with aligning yourself with a fixed political position is that it often turns policy discussions into a battle, and people become more solidly entrenched in their original points of view than they would have been if they had been arguing about topics that didn't have the "politics" tag attached to them. That doesn't mean these topics aren't relevant to real life or that no one considers them controversial even if you don't.
