“Po-Faced”: What’s it Mean?

You know, I first picked this word up from Sarah Newton. Judging from the context, it appears to mean “completely ignorant of Jack Vance and science fantasy in general; not only post-Christian and anti-Western in tone and application but also devoid of any connection to history, whimsy, or the weird.”

Let’s check google image search to see if we can tap into the collective consciousness on this one:

Good golly… that look! So smug… so contemptuous… so concerned and judgmental and snide all at once! One thing’s sure: you wouldn’t ever want to see that kind of attitude from any participant in a role-playing game. Ugh!

I think I just lost some San points looking at that…!

The horror… the horror!
