I discovered recently a blog post on Racial Essentialism which describes some definitions of racial essentialism, something which has been debated (and confused) here.

I also discovered a blog entirely devoted to race in D&D, though it hasn’t been updated since this time last year. It includes a lecture on race in D&D that was presented at the rather ominously entitled Nerd night. I haven’t had a chance to read it in depth, as I’m in the middle of a profane and sacrilegious ritual of great evil; but when I’m done despoiling all that is good in the world I’m going to give it more thought.

This is a particularly appropriate topic given how I just wrote a fake Indian myth for my own role-playing campaign…
