This week there’s a delightful 13 minute film about fantasy and roleplaying, an article on what Finding Nemo would be like with real science, and lessons for creating villains and magnificent bastards.
Includes this amazing quote from Jennifer Hepler:
“If you decide to take up almost any other hobby in the world, you can find beginning classes teaching you how to do it. […] And generally, the people already involved in those hobbies are thrilled to have someone with whom they can share their passion. But if you want to get started as a gamer, you get told, ‘go home noob,’ because people in this hobby hate newcomers so much they turned the word itself into an insult. How are we supposed to thrive as an industry if we are actively hostile to growing our audience?”
