  • Check out this dragon game Kickstarter with charming, whimsical art by Sandara Tang, one of my favorite dragon illustrators. It looks absolutely adorable, and I think I’m going to back it.

    That dragon game does look adorable! I wish I played more board games, because that one’s really tempting. (I might back it anyway.) But regardless I’m going to look up the artist now and see how else I can support such cute dragon content!

    I agree that the Valdemar TV news is exciting, but I’m annoyed at the marketing team. “First queer hero?” Um… I’ve seen references to LOTS of other earlier books with queer heroes. (It seems Misty and Larry are also a bit perplexed by that decision.) I’m also… well. Concerned. There’s a lot of rape in the Valdemar books. (Which is one reason why I stopped re-reading some of my favorites in the series.) I’m concerned about how far the TV series will go with that. Still… can we get a Kerowyn spin-off? Pretty please?
