Man, if this is what you write on the fly I'm pretty jealous.
Anyway, you really made me rethink some things for sure. Originally I thought the issues taken were unfair, as dismissing The Witcher as a "white game" is super unfair to its Polish creators who very passionately made something uniquely Polish. I still think there's an American tendency to project its racial situation onto other parts of the world. A lot of people I know here in Canada tend to lump all of Europeans into "white people" and dismiss the vast differences that exist between, say England and Poland. That's how I saw the issues taken with The Witcher, people were dismissing the unique Polish-ness as more "white people stuff."
But I also now realize that I fell into the same trap people always do with these issues. Just because it doesn't bother me, doesn't mean it's not an issue. So yeah, I suppose it would have been nice if they'd included some merchants, or mercenaries or missionaries or whatever from Zerrikania. It actually might have added some cool perspective, an outsider not directly tied to all the politicking going on.
