I’m enamoured with She Who Fights Monsters as a concept. On the surface it’s a game about a badass princess fighting bad guys! But the tragic and gruesome nature of the lore belies its original implications.
In this world, the etheral planes that house angels and demons feed on intense human emotion, both positive and negative, and enough passion from a distraught or besotted person draws the ethereal planes closer to the human realm, allowing monsters, angels and demons to enter the real world, morphed by the emotion of the unwitting summoner.
Princess Eodi is the heir to the throne of a kindgom ruled by a monarchy obsessed with aesthetic and beauty, when she acquires a scar on her face when accidentally tripped by a blacksmith running from guards for an accused crime (Sounds familiar to Chimneyspeak readers). Shunned by her vanity-obsessed family and confined to the castle to be hidden from the public, Eodi’s rage and thirst for revenge yanks the ethereal planes dangerously close to the corporeal one, allowing monsters and angels to the world en masse. Unable to live a life of solitude and exile, Eodi steals the GodWard, a massive, ugly sword (yet light as a feather in the hands of the nobility tasked to keep it) used to kill encroaching angels and demons in times of plane overlap. She escapes the castle’s keep with the GodWard, leaving it defenceless to any and all summoned spirits.
She then travels the kingdom in search of the blacksmith that gave her the scar, cutting a swathe through the angels and demons summoned by the ugly world she was hitherto ignorant of, such as:
- Equivocal Faust -(pictured) An angel summoned by the love and passion of the Tower of Covet, a tower used to keep those obsessed with sex, drugs or critical, non-pious thought away from society. Eodi slaughters the angels that guard the tower’s patrons, angels that moan and writhe when Eodi attacks them. The tower is made of tall, fleshy maroon ceilings and intertwining pillars, the walls covered with phallic and sapphic imagery and statues. The room in which the boss battle takes place is filled with books stacked on enormous shelves, the ceiling has a star map on it. Equivocal Faust has standard ground pound attacks that have to be dodged, and leg sweep attacks that have to be jumped over, but his health bar is made of sections, at the end of which he asks a question. Faust is an angel that feeds on critical thought, and the player answers based on one of four choices, the last of which Eodi ignores the question and screams rage and death at Faust. While the player is conditioned to answer sensibly by other multi-choice questions in games, each of the three sensible answers will restore Equivocal Faust’s health a section, as he finds pleasure from the act of critical thinking when Eodi responds in kind. Only when Eodi shirks Faust’s questions and starts to scream at him does he stop gaining his health back. When killed, Equivocal Faust morphs back to a frail old man that explains that he was bored in his life, having lived so long that all passions and pleasures had become dull to him. Eodi asks where to find the blacksmith that accidentally hurt her, and the human Faust points her in the right direction before he dies.
More boss fight ideas to come! This is fun.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: A BEGINNER’S GUIDE
The year is 2003. It is a kinder time, a simpler time.
Every single one of your classmates knows how to draw Trogdor the Burninator - first, you draw an S, then you draw a more different S.
"Everybody to the Limit" is a staple at middle school dances.
Your best friend’s little brother owns a plush The Cheat, and you can kick it, and it makes noise.
The year is 2003, the golden age of Homestar Runner.
Basically, every online content creator, every webcomic artist, every YouTube entertainer, owes Homestar Runner a shitload.
Once upon a time, Homestar Runner was the definitive Flash site, an online destination for kids and immature grown-ups alike, fielding millions of hits and thousands of e-mails a day.
Homestar Runner, the earnest athlete with a pure heart and a love for mankind, and his arch-nemesis, Strong Bad, a wrestler with a penchant for issuing snarky responses to fanmail, defined a generation through weird, surrealist Flash cartoons tinged with outdated pop cultural references.
Ten years later, there’s a new generation of Internetters who have never experienced the pure, unadulterated joy of H-Star-R, and that breaks my heart.
So, here, I’ve compiled this beginner’s guide to Homestar Runner. Every cartoon on this list is shorter than five minutes. Get into it. Do yourself a favour.
STEP ONE: STRONG BAD E-MAILS
- japanese cartoon
- stunt double
- kids’ book
- different town
- for kids
- bedtime story
STEP TWO: TEEN GIRL SQUAD
Episodes #1-15 are available here. Watch them all.
STEP THREE: SHORTS
- An Important Rap Song
- Where My Hat Is At?
- Best Caper Ever
- Play Date
- The Homestar Runner Gets Something Stuck In His Craw
- One Two, One Two
- Fluffy Puff Commercial
STEP FOUR: TOONS
Teen Girl Squad was always my favorite part of Homestar Runner. So good.
… get on my blog.
Yeah I’ll reblog this.
Don’t get me wrong, the new iPhones look interesting. But this is an excellent idea for the future of cellphones.
(by Dave Hakkens)
Completely agree with the OP. This is a very democratic, sustainable, and innovative path forward for cell phones. I hope such an idea can catch on.
I support this 100%.
This is such an amazing idea holy shit
Rape has become endemic in South Africa, so a medical technician named Sonette Ehlers developed a product that immediately gathered national attention there. Ehlers had never forgotten a rape victim telling her forlornly, “If only I had teeth down there.”
Some time afterward, a man came into the hospital where Ehlers works in excruciating pain because his penis was stuck in his pants zipper.
Ehlers merged those images and came up with a product she called Rapex. It resembles a tube, with barbs inside. The woman inserts it like a tampon, with an applicator, and any man who tries to rape the woman impales himself on the barbs and must go to an emergency room to have the Rapex removed.
When critics complained that it was a medieval punishment, Ehlers replied tersely, “A medieval device for a medieval deed.”
