Very eloquently put. In a world where we want and need to show respect to every person for who they are, it’s hard to not create a villain. Even when we don’t try too.
I feel you did a very good job of addressing the issue without the use of negative blame.
Editor’s Note: Kobold Press would like to apologize for the use of the term “gypsy.” We recognize it as a racial slur and understand its impact on the Romani people. This is important to us, and we will continue our efforts to ensure that respect is shown for all peoples and that such terms do not appear in our works. We hear and appreciate your feedback.
Kobold Press posted this today on their blog, as amendment to a recent article. I really appreciate that they addressed this issue, and I will be resuming my campaign journal going forward.
