This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

It has 0 out of ten ratings, no fans, and no comments, and it came out about 3 years ago, so Im not sure by what standard it's "top of the hotness"

It must have something to do with the semen stains on the cover.

This.
Grając zaś w grę komputerową, być może zdarzyło się wam zapragnąć zejść z wyznaczonej przez autorów ścieżki i, miast zabić smoka i ożenić się z księżniczką, zabić księżniczkę i ożenić się ze smokiem.

Nihil sine magno labore vita dedit mortalibus.

And by your sword shall you live and serve thy brother, and it shall come to pass when you have dominion, you will break Jacob’s yoke from your neck.

Dios, que buen vasallo, si tuviese buen señor!

The "hotness" list, as far as I know, is based on how often the entries for the games have been viewed lately. So there's a good chance that either a recent comment somewhere else is prompting people to look it up, or else the counter's picking up search engine hits for "camwhores" or whatnot.

Hotness is essentially meaningless.

It is a baromiter of what people are currently looking at alot. Ot came up on search engines enough to ping the hotness and then it snowballs.

Sometimes there are hox campaigns to artifically bloat the hotness with some item meant to piss people off. The admin tend to let it happen. I know. I reported one and was told that it would pass and to just ignore it.

BGG and RPGG and whatever Hotess is meaningless. Their rating system isnt much better since it seeds in dummy votes to balance out high and low votes.

Cause other systems work a lot better ...


BTW: Slipperboy and I (RPG guys) just became the #2 and #4 reviewers on the site. We'd be #1 and #2 if the pro/semi=pro boardgame reviewers were tossed out. (Those guys get paid or get free samples.)

Eh, BGG really shouldnt have a ratings system at all. But such is.

As for paid reviewers. I tend to consider them compromised and unreliable. The ones that beg or demand free games I have even less use for.

Because is a... ya know... RPG possibly and because, oh I dont know... The OP wanted to know how it could have gotten on the listing?

Try paying attention. It helps.

Its from the 24 hour RPG contest. Write a RPG using two words as a basis. The author choose Amazons and Lust.

It is essentially a 2 player storytelling game using a deck of cards against eachother.
