is a game that invites players to wander the Scottish Highlands as part of an ensemble of gay male orcs. There is "a polyamorous trio of orc chieftains." Mitch Alexander: One of the reasons I wanted to explore orcs is because they're almost always the outsiders.

You'll also find ableism, misogyny, homophobia, cissexism, and classism presented in one big bundle that's justified because orcs are "inherently evil." It's an uncomfortable connotation for the folk that share similar traits.

It's extremely loaded and can't just be dismissed by saying, "It's just fantasy, it's meaningless." For a lot of people, it's easier to identify with the monster of a story than the hero we're supposed to root for.

The hero often brings with them a kind of entitlement due to their ability, their independence, their legal/moral/religious prerogative, their race, their class.

That tends to cause trouble rather than reduce or solve it.

A lot of the scenarios in the game do touch on the personal and the political.

You find out, for example, that one of the orcs has problems with mental illness which caused him to believe he was inherently, unfixably weak, and how he deals with that.

That's both me wanting to show mental illness isn't a hyperbolic and grim, but something that happens to people we should be able to talk about.

Also it touches on my own experiences with mental illness too so maybe I'm a little less afraid of talking to people about it as well.

I have depression and social anxiety—which, as mental illnesses go, are fairly common.
