I’d like to direct everyone’s attention to a fun little website completely serious political movement called the Goblin Defense Fund.

I’m a big fan of all the little guys: kobolds, goblins, faeries, everything. I’m also a fan of all the monster races that players typically pick on: orcs, gnolls, ogres, trolls, and whatnot. Oh, and zombies. I love zombies. Just look at the little list of webcomics on my list: it includes Goblins: Life Through Their Eyes, one of the few webcomics I’ve stuck with through every hiatus.

Whenever I roll up a new character, one of the things that’s built into each one is a great deal of sympathy for those often maligned or mistreated — my characters are frequently advocates for equal treatment of monsters, as though they looked and sounded and acted like other humanoids. (Even those of the “monstrous” variety.)

So yeah, take a look. Have a laugh, share it with your friends. Take a moment to reflect on what it means to be non-human.
