"When we have but the will to do it, that very moment will Justice be done: that very instant the tyrants of the Earth shall bite the dust." - Peter Kropotkin
"Freedom only for the members of the government, only for the members of the Party — though they are quite numerous — is no freedom at all. Freedom is always the freedom of dissenters. The essence of political freedom depends not on the fanatics of 'justice', but rather on all the invigorating, beneficial, and detergent effects of dissenters. If 'freedom' becomes 'privilege', the workings of political freedom are broken." - Rosa Luxemburg
Time to wear my flags openly. Democratic Socialist in the tradition of Rosa Luxemburg. Sympathy for Trotsky. Still have a thing for idealist aesthetics.
If i see one more cursed item that transforms your character into some kind of fetish...
Gratitude Where It's Due
A big thank you to all the wonderful people who clean up after me. I try my best, but i am not a native English speaker and, sometimes, it shows. Thank you, ConcealedLight, for helping me learn the do's and don'ts.
Create a psychic alien race with elements from earthbound and cognitive dissonance. Because we need some posadist comrades.
Look through the cursed items and move the unique ones with actual benefits to the artifact section, while working to balance some of them. All the ones i don't like get templates and will some day be deleted, since no cares for cursed items.
Write some cursed items that make man obey good aligned women, while putting them in a playboy-bunny outfit. Can only be cured by a wish of course.
Improve Zen'trath until they become a featured article. You will become a anarchist-syndicalist slime too. No escape.
A chaotic good paladin subclass that does not rely on a too modern-age perspective. Authentic Maoism, go!
Concerning those who think they show what is 'true and real':
I think the concepts of "fantastic realism", "verisimilitude ", "realism" and "flawed characters" in themselves are flawed and only give you a twisted perspective on what is supposedly real and what not, since they are always filtered through the ideology of their author. What they don't think as "realistic" is not possible in whatever they create, while impossible things happen quite naturally in the realm of fantasy. I have no good proposal for their conceptual replacements. If i ever do, i'll link it here.
Not a solution, but a further argument supporting this:
"In the more sophisticated versions of the critics of ideology - that developed by the Frankfurt School, for example - it is not just a question of seeing things (that is, social reality) as they 'really are," of throwing away the distorting spectacles of ideology; the main point is to see how the reality itself cannot reproduce itself without this so-called ideological mystification. The mask is not simply hiding the real state of things; the ideological distortion is written into its very essence... the moment we see it 'as it really is,' this being dissolves itself into nothingness or, more precisely, it changes into another kind of reality. That is why we must avoid simple metaphors of demasking, of throwing away the veils which are supposed to hide the naked reality. " -Slavoj Žižek
"And maddest of all-to see life as it is... And not how it should be!" -Man of la Mancha
