The Story of Julie D’Aubigny, as told by Ben Thompson

image via Wikipedia

Ben Thompson’s blog “Badass Of The Week” is a veritable library of short, palatable descriptions of historical figures who closely resemble characters made by seasoned Dungeons and Dragons veterans during a drunken fortnight-long LARPing retreat.

I’d like to draw your attention to his recounting of the tale of Julie D’Aubigny, the 17th-century bisexual French opera singer and fencing master.

If you thought you were out of inspiration for your next Steampunk fantasy story, high-Dex Bard (or high-Charisma Rogue), you were wrong.
