Day 30 and 29 of the DA:I Final Countdown Meme
30 Days: What is your Inquisitor’s Name and why did you name them that?
29 Days: What race and class is your Inquisitor? What is your and their reason for that class? How do they feel about it? (x)
My first Inquisitor’s name is Arianna, the reason for her name is for irony because it means “most holy.” This is because she’s a human mage which means she’s a Trevelyan. She was supposed to train to become a Templar but due to her magic manifesting when she was young she was shuttled off to the Tower. She used to think her magic was a curse but when she realised that she could become an even greater warrior as a Knight Enchanter she felt a bit better.
Lyael’s name on the other hand I can’t remember what his name means, I think it was “shadow/dark”. He’s an elf who’s an AU of my half-elf Pathfinder character. I’m not sure what specialization I’ll take with him as he’s originally a ranger in Pathfinder. Hopefully I can spec him out to be a ranger of sorts because he enjoys nature very much and can easily kill you with his bow from years of hunting and tracking. So I think being a rogue will suit him quite perfectly.

"I’m not scared of desperately uncool cultural reactionaries like Jack Thompson or anti-witchcraft Harry Potter burners. I’m scared of the people who do hold cultural power, who have the loud voice, who are, in fact, the cool kids, but think they’re embattled underdogs. I’m scared of the people who think that because disco was “taking over music” they had the right to “fight back” bullying and attacking disco performers and fans.
I’m scared of people who look at someone like Zoe Quinn, an individual who makes free indie games, or Anita Sarkeesian, an individual who makes free YouTube videos, and honestly think that these women are a powerful “corrupt” force taking away the freedom of the vast mob of angry young male gamers and the billion-dollar industry that endlessly caters to them, and that working to shut them up and drive them out somehow constitutes justice. The dominant demographic voice in some given fandom or scene feeling attacked by an influx of new, different fans and rallying the troops against “oppression” in reaction is not at all unique. It happens everywhere, all the time.
But let’s be honest: It’s usually guys doing it. Our various “culture wars” tend to boil down to one specific culture war, the one about men wanting to feel like Real Men and lashing out at the women who won’t let them. Whenever men feel like masculinity is under attack, men get dangerous. Because that’s exactly what masculinity teaches you to do, what masculinity is about. Defending yourself with disproportionate force against any loss of power? That’s what masculinity is."
