Holy Cow

Today’s word is “mozzetta” (Tomorrow’s will be: “kimlé”)

I’ve been reading (the important parts of) Inner Sea Gods. Each of the 20 main Golarion gods gets a paragraph or two about their temples.  And (more importantly) the fashions favored by their followers, both liturgical and secular.  I got about half way through (to Nethys) when the craziest thing happened: I learned a new fashion word — mozzetta. *sigh* Schooled in fashion vocabulary by an RPG book.  I feel shame as a free action.  Do I have to turn in my fashion card?

I was obviously distraught, because later the same day I ran the Erylium encounter in “Rise of the Runelords”, and every single PC survived. To add insult to injury, they weren’t even interested in the silk dress they found.  What’s a tiny creature doing with a medium sized dress? (In this case, she was using it as a nest)  Where did she get it?  This could be the biggest Fashion Mystery in Sandpoint since Father Zantus’s turtleneck!

Speaking of, I told one of my players about learning a new word, and without missing a beat she asked, “Does it mean ‘anachronistic blue turtleneck’?”.

Unrelatedly, wanna see a picture of a cow wearing a mozzetta?  F. Wesley Schneider has one.  That’s gotta be a mozzetta, right?  I kind of hope they don’t correct it so my witch can get a robe that comes with a stylish, bovine animal companion.
