Where imagination is capped out

To be fair here, part of the fun of historical RPGs and fantasy is to change as little as possible and watch the effect of the fantastic premise on the setting.

I honestly think they’re asking a question relating to what PoC groups were living in the area at the time. Just because it has a supernatural element doesn’t mean it can’t have accuracy. As a writer, that’s one thing I strive for personally.

I think they’re asking what sort of ethnicities were present in Hungary at that time. Not to be rude, but it’s a reasonable question and I’m not sure why you brushed it off. Vampires are fantasy, but the setting could still be historically accurate.

tranettew reblogged your post justcuriousabout said:Hi, I am v… and added:

That’s unnecessary shade. The whole blog is about historically accurate representation of PoC in history and, ergo, it is not an excuse to be non-inclusive in media as there were PoC in Europe at different points in history. This ask is essentially what you’re trying to promote, I thought.

i need ferguson to go down in history books. i need school children in the year 2074 to learn about michael brown being shot on august 9th, 2014 by officer darren wilson. i need this to spark a movement. this can not lose the focus of society a mere month after it happened.

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

There is no “universal womfnhood”

This isn’t so average when you’ve lived your whole adult life under the poverty line barely able to make rent, just saying.
