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.

Crusade: probably removed because it gives white creatures a +1/+1.


This reminds me of the time at TPB when someone claimed that the Castles & Crusades rpg was problematic due to its name.

Those vermin! Policing themselves! Only WE can police their thoughts! We must protest, we must do a sit-in protest! We must Occupy WotC!!

Actually they are policing everyone with those cards by banning them. Which is absolutely nothing new. WOTC has banned or changed cards before and even one or two because they were deemed offensive. This time its just alot more PC virtue signalling. They could have dropped the cards without crowing.

It seems like parody. Sadly...

Gatherer, the official online database of every Magic card ever published, displays the card at a web URL ending in "1488," numbers that are synonymous with white supremacy.

On a point of information, the KKK are actually opposed to the 14/88 Nazitards. Even though they're both anti-black and anti-Semitic. I think the KKK see themselves as Christian and the 14/88ers as godless Heathens.


My favorite part is how that 1488 URL happened purely by coincidence, since each card gets a sequential ID based on the order it was created, but they still want to read "racism" into it, cuz the number of beast came up by pure happenstance, so they have to assume there's some greater cosmic significance to it. And that significance, of course, is deeply racist and problematic.

This is beyond hilarious: a game whose entire foundation rests on competing colored factions attempting to eliminate specific references to color. Because, you know, people can also be different colors (logic!). It won't be long until someone more WOAK will declare the entire game premise racist.

WOTC should have fired, or better yet... executed, their marketing branch as these parasites have at nearly every turn tried to drag the company and product down. You can bet that they pushed for hiring more SJWs because it was trendy.

I'd say there's definitely a building market for "Hey all! Remember when you used to play games because they were fun? We have those!"

SJWs really are the Puritans 2.0.

Puritanism: angst caused by the thought that someone somewhere may be having a good time.

And a (maybe online at first) convention under that same premise, hell given the probable speakers, GMs etc different time zones you could even make it 24hrs during the 3 days it runs.

Anyone want to place bets on what happens first?

1. WotC formally endorses the "Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone."
2. DriveThruRPG bans Castles & Crusades for 'problematic content.'

Man... what are the odds you're giving? That's a tight choice!

I'll do you one better. WOTC hired this artist for many MTG cards. They must have seen his portfolio.



WOTC knew they were commissioning art from a controversial artist. They have no excuse. Defund WOTC!
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

That picture is racist and offensive, and it has NO place in our game, or anywhere else!

How dare you post that image without a NSFW filter on? Are you aware of that picture's association with white supremacist symbolism and Neo-Nazi groups? The idea of countering someone else's attempts to bring diverse individuals of color into the table is an example of colonialist white entitlement and fragility, and is very problematic.
