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.
