An Addendum to the previous post but Arch-Confessor Kyrinov is listed as Redemptor Kyrinov, Arch-Confessor, which I think implies that his first name is Redemptor, which I like as it suits the universe, but on the other hand I can only imagine the sort of teasing he must have endured as a kid.

Also his big heroic moment I think deserves to be recounted in full.

Kyrinov is most famous for his handling of the Molovian Heresy. While posing as a staunch supporter of the renegade Governor of Molov, Kyrinov spent three years gathering evidence against him and rallying support for his overthrow. With hundreds of secret meetings with industrial and trade leaders, Kyrinov stirred up a cartel which plotted to topple the greedy Governor Vlachek from power. With the support of the workers’ unions and the traders, Kyrinov was able to lead a popular revolt and wrest the reins of power from Vlachek. Vlachek’s cousin was installed in power in his place and it must be noted that Molov now has a startling reputation for efficiency and honesty when delivering its Ecclesiarchal Tithes. All this was achievevd with no other influence from the Ecclesiarchy or any other Imperial organization.

Dang I wanna read a novel about that.

So I’ve been going back over some of the older Codices

Specifically the Second and Third edition Sister of Battle Codices, though the latter is technically Codex: Witchhunters. I have to admit as much as I dislike certain elements of each(In both cases the Sisters of Battle seem uncharacteristically passive during the Age of Apostasy) There are a lot of potentially interesting characters in both that were either dropped off the face of the earth, or kicked over into the Codex:Grey Knights. St. Praxedes, for example, would be an HQ unit I’d love to take, as it would give me a named Sister of Battle who isn’t Saint Celestine. Also Helena the Virtuous from the 2nd edition codex is kinda everything I’d want to be in the 40k universe, I’m still not sure why she was dropped from later codices.

Another interesting thing that I took from it is how simple changes can completely alter the feel of an army and a universe. Simply by changing a few key descriptors and a few units, The Sisters of Battle went from a very “dark/gothic age(s) but in space” to “Violent Spanish Inquisition, Inquisitors included” I doubt I’m going to go into game design or ever write a Codex for Games Workshop, but it’s an interesting mental exercise.

HOLY SHIT a woman who voices popular opinions on Female roles in video games was hired to work on a video game with a female protagonist???? I can’t believe this shit how did we let this happen, it’s almost like game developers WANT to make sure about strong, developed roles. God, the nerve of some people.

i legit thought it was mockery. in fact i still kinda do, it just makes the text below it sound sarcastic

*adds to list of games I have to play*

Anita Sarkeesian is a self-professed non-gamer who has no experience dealing with the development of video games and is innately biased in her criticism of them; those reasons alone ought to be enough to prevent her landing a job in developing any video game.

Gee, I wonder why she might not identify as a gamer despite has described in detail her experiences as a player of games. I’m assuming you would also complain about Joesph Campbell’s unofficial role as an advisor to the original Star Wars trilogy, as his background was in Mythology.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FW-69xXD734

This is by no mean the only point one can make criticising Anita, and certainly not the only one by this user (there are many videos outlining the many logical biases and flaws in her videos), but it’s a very concise one. I will check out her Tumblr if you like, but i doubt i will be impressed; she has lied before, and i have no reason to believe she would not do so in her blog.
Also notice how she handles the controller; call me sheltered, but i’ve never encountered a game which emphasised the use of the d-pad and X/A buttons over any of the other controls (including not using the analogue sticks and right-side trigger in any regard).

I had to google Joseph Campbell, but i don’t think his mythological background was detrimental to Star Wars in any way. I don’t believe he was biased against the nature of the works he was helping create, unlike Anita, so i believe his contributions to be, if nothing else, harmless… unlike Anita’s.

Okay, two things to consider, one, she’s probably not playing a game in that shot as it’s a camera shot for a TV interview, two did you consider the possibility that she might be navigating a menu, something that is often easier using a D-pad.

This is true, also one of these days I’ll do a write up/thinkpiece on how the Sisters of Battle were a factor that helped me in my transition, but that’s another story for another time.

Americans look at Thomas Jefferson and see the one of the authors of the Declaration of Independence,  a statesman, a former president and one of the founding fathers,’ however; when I look at him, I see the face of a rapist. When Jefferson first met Sally Hemings, his slave through inheritance, she would have been no more than 15 or 16 years old.  It is rumoured that when she returned from France with him, that she was already pregnant with his child.
It was widely suggested within his own life time that he kept a light skinned negro concubine.  You see, Sally was 3/4 white and was described as a handsome light skinned woman with long dark hair in one of the few known descriptions of her.   Jefferson’s children through his wife Martha Wayles Skelton Jefferson, denied the relationship, however; Jefferson himself did not publicly answer the rumours.  The only slaves that Jefferson freed were the children of Hemings and he petitioned the government for two of her sons to stay in Virginia after emancipation. At the time, a slave had to leave the state within one year of manumission.
There are those that to this day vehemently deny that Jefferson fathered Sally’s six children despite the DNA evidence.  It is my belief that such denial is not based in the simple fact that it would prove that he was a lecher but that he chose a woman of color.
On the other side of the coin are those that believe the oral, written, and DNA evidence.   They often refer to the relationship as an illicit love affair, citing that Sally had the opportunity to stay in France where slavery was outlawed, rather than returning to the United States with Jefferson.  Assuming that Sally had chosen to stay in Paris, what would an uneducated 1/4 negresss do with no money to support herself and her unborn child?  She chose to return because Jefferson gave his word that he would free her children and offer her a life of comfort relative to the other slaves at Monticello.
Jefferson may have felt love for Sally but how can we possibly term this relationship a love affair?  Once they returned to the US, he had the power to have her flogged, or even put to death.  At anytime he could have sold her children away from her.  For a relationship based in love to exist, both parties must be equal and due to the power differential between Jefferson and Hemings what occurred cannot be described as anything other than rape.  Some have even had the nerve to refer to Hemings as the first Black first lady of the United States as a way of further legitimizing the relationship between the two, however; to sanitize it and call it anything other than rape, is to once again violate her spirit.
Jefferson was not the first or last White man to sneak into the slave cabins.  One of the reasons White women argued so vehemently for the abolition of slavery, was to save the poor overwhelmed White man from the negro temptress.  It was not uncommon to see near white or light skinned children resembling the master working on the plantation.  The Black woman was and still is blamed for her own rape.  Victim blaming began with women of color and continues to this day.
No matter how many times Black women have angrily contested the use of the term love affair between Hemings and Jefferson, it continues to be the most common descriptor by those who believe the DNA evidence.  This assumes that Hemings actually had the power to deny Jefferson sexual access, or that Jefferson had a right to Sally’s body for the purposes of sexual gratification.  Both suppositions are erroneous.  Due to the patriarchal nature of gender relations, many men believe that they exist with the right to access  women’s bodies and that is specifically grounded in the power imbalance between the genders.  If we can acknowledge in a modern context that a power imbalance exists between men and women, how much more likely is it that this same imbalance existed between Jefferson and Hemings?
Some may look back at Jefferson and simply claim that he was a man of his time and that he should not be judged outside of historical context, however; in my mind a rapist is a rapist.   What he did at the time may not have been considered a violation due to current race and gender relations, however; today we can correctly name his actions.  Sally did not have the power to consent to his advances even if she was so inclined; this simple fact must be affirmed not only to honour the memory of Hemings but to change the social understanding that Black women’s bodies are unrapeable.  We are not naturally licentious whores who exist to fulfill the sexual fantasies of depraved racist men.  We are women that must be accorded the right to control over our bodies without punishment for any decisions we make in that regard.

You know, As odious as I usually find machismo, I kinda respect the Space Wolves. 

You have to respect stubbornness so potent that it can serve as a real shield against psykers

Yeah, but the Sisters of Battle have that as well, so keep that in mind. Shield of Faith now grant Adamantium Will, in addition to a 6+ invuln save.

Yeah, but that’s faith (Which is awesome, I love faith-based powers) whilst the Space Wolves are just really stubborn.

Daemon: Look, mister, I can possess you, I’m a daemon and you’re a psyke—

SW: NAY! I WIELD THE POWERS OF THE STORMS OF FENRIS! NO WITCHCRAFT HERE!

*Daemon fails to possess Space Wolf*

SW: Told you so.

it’s really funny reading the horus heresy novels and the rune priests are in total denial about being psykers

It is. They literally beat down daemons and such by just being incredibly stubborn man-children.

Like, their whole thing is just going “Nuh Uh!”

Which seems to work fairly well, to be fair.

I laughed, but having read Prospero Burns, I can confirm that’s 100% true.

Wait. Shit. Fuck.
I got that wrong. They kind of disappeared in the fluff after the M30 era and it is a fan theory that they now work on the Black Ships.
So yeah, I got that wrong.

The Sisters of Battle are descended from the Brides of the Emperor, nothing to do with the Sisters of Silence.

Yes and no, tharook, nightshade-victorian, and I are working on a way to explain it, probably by writing a novel on it, but the short version is there was a 500 woman sect of the Imperial Cult called the Daughters of the Emperor(on an Ag-world, San Leor) that Goge Vandire the Apostate Ecclesearch found and made his bodyguards, renaming them the Brides of the Emperor. Right before Goge was beheaded by Alicia Dominica, she declared that they were the Daughters of the Emperor again*.

*this often gets confusing so the way I usually phrase things is that the Daughters of the Emperor were the original San Leor based group and the Sisters of Battle are the modern warriors of faith, the Daughters of the Emperor would equally apply to both groups however.

Why throwing the game off its tracks is a terrible idea.

tales-from-the-tabletop:

Okay so I sent a condensed version of this story on the anonymous feature, but I figured I should tell you the story in full and let you revel in all it’s glory.

This story is quite old, keep in mind. Like this was when 3.5 was still new, when the Order of the Stick didn’t even have 100 pages. I may have forgotten some details.

Anyway, before I get into the tale properly, I’ll tell you of the people involved. First there’s the GM, of course. He was a good 5 years older than us at least, the friend of a friend of a brother kinda thing.

Next there was the moron player. He was playing an elven rogue in a leather bikini and half of his character sheet was about how sexy she was. She was originally supposed to be a trap expert and our go-to trap disarmer, but at the last second he decided to be an assassin. He also played chaotic neutral. I have nothing against people who play chaotic neutral characters but I think you can guess what kind of player this guy was.

Then there was the munchkin. Yeah, we had one and they aren’t fun, especially when they don’t know how to munchkin. He played a human or a dwarf cleric (I forget which) and was lawful neutral. He spent most of the prep time saying he’d channel positive but then suddenly it turned out he was channeling negative because “he didn’t want to be stuck on healing duty”. I think that he read on a forum something about clerics being really strong and decided to play one without actually reading about what makes them powerful.

And finally there was me, playing the half-elf wizard, neutral good alignment. Also in the party we had a lawful neutral dwarf fighter, due to the lack of reliable frontline fighters (because the cleric had min-maxed strength, wisdom and charisma. Like I said, no idea what he was doing) and because we only had 3 players. The dwarf fighter was loyal to my character for saving his life. The munchkin was quick to complain about how unfair it was I got a companion, to which the GM explained was because I had the worst HP and no armour.

It was probably this (and the rejection of the munchkin’s first character sheet. He “forgot” we were using the point-buy system instead of his “lucky” dice) that made the munchkin try and derail the campaign as much as he did. I don’t know how he got the moron to go along with it, but he did. He also tried to get me to go along with it, trying to claim that the GM was being unfair and a bad GM.

We started the game in a town, having received a message from the dwarven king that he wishes to employ us on some hush-hush work. We are in the town and asked what we are doing before the scheduled meeting with the king.

Me: I’m browsing the dwarven libraries, trying to see if I can find any scrolls or magical tomes.
Munchkin: I’m er, just doing the same.

GM: You’re a cleric, you don’t-

Munchkin: Fine! Jeez, I’m praying in the temple.

Moron: I head to the tavern and try to seduce the barmaid.

(The seduce-the-barmaid thing from the suddenly bisexual rogue would become a thing over the next 3 sessions).

So after a lot of groaning from the GM as the moron didn’t get the hint the the barmaid wasn’t interested and he was not going to provide him his fetishes, the party was gathered to an audience with the king. Because this was top secret, it was just the three of us and the king. Guess what happened?

Moron: I draw my longbow and shoot at the king. *Nat 20’d*

The GM’s jaw hit the table, he kept his temper however and demanded an in-character-reason. Props to the moron though, it was a good one. Apparently his character was hired by one of the dwarven nobles who wanted the throne. So the GM asked for 10 minutes to “do some number crunching” which I would later learn was his way of saying “I need to improvise.” The Cleric and moron celebrated this victory and I was just groaning and calling them both idiots.

The Cleric and Rogue then held my character hostage, forcing my loyal knight into being loyal to them and that caused an hour long debate over whether the cleric lost his powers for deviating from his God’s laws. It eventually came to the conclusion that all along the munchkin’s cleric was a secret spy of some god of evil, planted to help the assassin kill the king. This meant their characters were now lawful evil and chaotic evil but they didn’t seem too hung up on that.

So with me as hostage, they both escaped the dwarven stronghold and props for the improvisation, because the quest was now a fugitives-on-the-run-to-the-border quest with every official after them. Of course, the other two just started dive-bombing everything they can. The rogue went from a sleep-with-anything sex goddess to a borderline rapist, the cleric suddenly worshipped a God of death and destruction instead of lies and secrecy and wherever we entered a village we left it in flames.

Soon, the GM left a hint for me before the third session, that while I’m leveling my wizard up, maybe I should learn “Plane Shift”. I was actually planning on quitting the game honestly, but the way he said it made me stick around and follow his advice.

During one of the nights when the players were camped out in the wilderness (we were basically the most wanted terrorists at this point, we couldn’t even approach roads, let alone towns), my character was given a “prophetic dream” Instantly the cleric demanded to know and argued as a cleric he should know. He didn’t have any mind reading spells though, so he just sulked as I recieved a note. The moron asked what it was and I pointed out my character was still asleep, so couldn’t do anything.

So in the morning, we got into our first battle with some innocent villagers. I won initiative, so I tapped the fighter on the shoulder and cast plane shift. As you can guess, an hour of argument broke out. The cleric argued that he should be able to notice something like that. The GM argued back that at the start of every battle, I cast mage armour on the fighter and there was nothing different. He then demanded a spellcraft check to identify I was casting a spell. He failed fortunately and my wizard and his faithful ally were free from the cleric and rogue.

So while they slaughtered the villagers, I joked about playing a Paladin who would bring these two to justice, mainly just to annoy the munchkin because I knew what was gonna happen next. The moron asked what time it was in-game, to which the GM answered “11:59am”. Of course the munchkin performed every roll he could think of. Spellcraft, sense motive, hide, spot, bluff… Before he decided on casting every single defensive spell on himself he had prepared (which wasn’t a lot).

Eventually, the GM asked for reflex checks from the pair. I think the cleric got a natural 20 while the rogue failed, so the cleric got the damage halved. While the cleric laughed at the GM for failing, he simply asked

"What is half of 2098?"

Then the GM revealed the whole scenario. Because the players had killed the king, they were never hired to help deal with the cultists in the sewers. Because they never fought them, they never discovered the continent-wide conspiracy. Because of that they could not stop the summoning of an eldritch abomination, because of that, the entire continent was destroyed by this monster in the blink of an eye.

This provoked the first and only time I’ve seen a player physically assault a GM. However, the munchkin was about 13 at the time and being 5 years older, the GM didn’t really have a problem. They were quickly banned for that aggression too.

Oh and for those who think this ending sucks, fast forward to about 2010 with the GM back out of college. He gave me a call, wondering if I wanted to join some of his new friends in a game. When I agreed, he asked if I still had Jaerin the Azure’s character sheet. I did have to re-roll him, but an epic quest began as my half-elf wizard was joined by an elven druid, a human paladin, an elven ranger, a dwarf cleric (who actually healed) and a human rogue/bard in a quest to vanquish the great evil that had taken over the continent (the GM ret-conned the destruction and turned it into domination). Along the way, we had an epic court case where we had to prove my character was innocent of killing the dwarf king and in the process we revealed that NPC dwarf fighter who was still loyally following me on the elemental plane of air was in fact the missing prince and heir to the throne. We also tag-teamed against the cleric and rogue, because their employer the evil dwarf noble was now a mindless puppet of the great evil. Best game I ever played.
