I liked HoTT for both whimsy and “serious” fantasy play. I still want to use Khurasan minis female cannibals (who look suspiciously like radical feminist Andrea Dworkin) to build a radfem army and then put together an opposed “Anti-SWERF ‘n TERF Alliance” army made up of street walkers, gender-benders, and trans people. Mercenary elements would be born again Christians (for the radfems) and Mens Rights Activists (for thenAlliance). The only problem is most gamers wouldn’t get it and most people who get it wouldn’t game (well, my niece and her partner would like it).
We get slapped around, but we have a good time!
