I love every aspect of this.
I feel the need to point out that Dungeons & Dragons and Wizards of the Coast have always (for the last 2.5 decades at least) done a pretty admirable job of maintaining diversity and avoiding over sexualizing characters, especially female characters.
Is there anything a natural 20 can’t do?
This is a poster idea I developed to show off the amazingness of tabletop rpgs.
This is an awesome Idea.
We have dice shaming, but it’s also great to acknowledge the ridiculous things they can allow you to do too.

Melvins - Brass Cupcake
Tireless alt-metal upstream swimmers the Melvins are releasing their 24th studio album, Hold It In, this October — a wildly diverse, heavily crunching project that recalls the freewheeling experimentalism of their mid-Nineties Atlantic Records run. As the Big Business bros (bassist Jared Warren and co-drummer Coady Willis) are sitting this one out, King Buzzo and Dale Crover have teamed up with two members of legendary provoco-punk noisemakers the Butthole Surfers. Joined by Buttholes guitarist Paul Leary and bassist JD Pinkus, the Melvins explores everything from psych-noise, to broken glam, to lots of classic sludge-metal, to a song reminiscent of Neil Young’s polarizing vocoder experiment Trans.
The Melvins/Buttholes love affair has been long and plentiful: The Melvins released a song called “GGIIBBYY” in 1996 (presumably after frontman Gibby Haynes), the Surfers played the Melvins co-curated ATP in 2008, the two bands shared a split 12-inch in 2011, and the Melvs spent their last tour covering the B-Holes’ “Graveyard.”
Today they releasedHold It In's opening track “Bride of Crankenstein” to iTunes, but we have a stream of “Brass Cupcake,” a track that sounds like the Cars and Devo plugging into Blue Cheer's amp stacks. Hear it now and pre-order Hold It In this Monday.
