Questions for Jennifer

@NKJemisin

Were you consciously interrogating terrorism in the construction of Anders?

Were you consciously interrogating the willingness of authorities to benefit from oppression? (e.g. Elthina)

Does the “resolution” to the Mage-Templar war in DAI fit your original intentions? (I’m fine w/a yes/no.)

Do you have any non-game prose work out there? If so, where?

@cynixy (Anna McGill)

Q: How are you so awesome?

Follow-up Q: How do you STAY so awesome?

@ImAaronJ

Who was your favorite character to write for? Who was your favorite character that you didn’t write for?

What are you currently reading?

When writing characters, how do you find a voice for them? Do you look at designs for the character or do you read a description of them? What’s your technique for this?

@Thain1982

What kind of good can games/interactive media be used for if we stop insisting that they “just” be games

What project are you proudest to have worked on?

What we’re playing/reading/watching:

Jennifer: Her Story, 1979 Revolution, (reading) Kate Elliot’s Black Wolves
