So I took a guess as to what that article is about, skimmed through it and it looks like I was right. I can tell the person has issues when she takes two perfectly fine pictures and starts complaining about the cleavage, that most normal people wouldn't even have noticed if she didn't draw attention to it.
Well, at least she admits it.
There is something fundamentally wrong with that quote but I can't put my finger on it.
You mean persian/middle eastern inspired? Middle eastern civilizations predate Islam....Noy's Muslim-inspired faction
It also points to a million things that aren't related to sexism. Just saying.Kasdel wrote:The fact that there aren't many female warriors in most factions points to a deep-rooted sexism in Wesnothian societies.
I guess my comment would sound pretty outrageous if you ignore the fact that evil race of darker-colored elves is a well-known fantasy trope, a.k.a. Drow. Some people may find that trope offensive, but my comment was meant to be understood in that context and is not, in itself, offensive... unless of course you take it out of that context.
No? Noy said, "I wanted something that had the tradition of the Hamzanama, and other great works in Islamic mythology/storytelling." Source: viewtopic.php?p=566696#p566696

I mean the implication was that dark skinned fantasy races that aren't evil is "unpopular" or the idea would be unwelcome in some way, which sounds disingenuous. In fact, dark skinned elves that aren't evil isn't exactly a new idea, and I don't even mean in the "token good drow" sense. Drowtales has been a mildly popular comic long before the idea of the quenoth elves was even considered.
Those works are definetley inspired by islamic lore but they are the products of a culture that is much older. But I digress.No? Noy said, "I wanted something that had the tradition of the Hamzanama, and other great works in Islamic mythology/storytelling."
