reverse Monster Hunter where we play as monsters and we attack hunters to protect the environment.
instead of getting better weapons from their skin, we get an improved ecosystem (more animals&plants&clear water etc.) and that makes us stronger. that's the grind, instead of bigger armour you watch your forest flourish more and more. this also attracts worse hunters, creating the difficulty curve.

How does one going about describing the relationship between Leslie Knope and Ann Perkins? I need a word for *that*.
Like we joke about me having a husband and a boyfriend, despite being married and monogamous, but that feels weirdly appropriative. But I can't think how to convey "I love this person unconditionally and they are an important part of my life on a day-to-day basis, but we are not romantically nor sexually involved and have no desire to be" and that's the closest I've gotten.
I'm thinking a lot the last few weeks about how annoying it is that there's very little granularity or nuance in describing relationships in popular lexicon.
That person I see once a year and enjoy seeing and we know each other's names and basic things about each other? They're a friend.
The person I say "I love you" to every day? They're a friend, too.
