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.

Wanna talk about how hiring SJWs can drag your company down!? Check out deer lady, she sunk twitch!



Wouldn't it be hilarious if she worked with tabletop Rpg's?

It would be interesting to hear her announce what she'd like to do on her turn.  I highly recommend Dungeon World to her.  She already has the hair for it.
I need you to roll a perception check.....

As an acquaintance observed: W.O.T.C.  = whites only total control
One shudders to think what HASBRO really stands for


Hasbro oddly enough seems to tolerate this only so far before they tighten WOTCs leash, again.

Eventually if they dont start acting sane the Hasbro will have to take Ol'Wotc out back and put the dog down. Thats assuming Hasbro wakes up to the spreading cancer of SJWs into their own workplace. Odds are though they wont and Hasbro will become another cancer host for this disease.

that's funny. My Artifact deck used that card quite a bit. It was awesome.

More funny - the whole entire point of that art is to underscore the intent of the card in play. That people are offended by it is idiotic. I wonder how many people were lynched because of this card? Hasbro should be held accountable.

I still find the banning of 'Cleanse' FAR more funny. Note - they didn't remove the Black version of that card. Or the Green or Blue ones... I guess Green and Blue and White lives don't matter? We already know what happened to the Red lives...

I don't know why, but Hasbro killed off Mrs. White from 'Clue' a few years ago.  Hmmm.

Actually Ms White has changed several times over the decades. Was doing some research and was surprised to discover the following.

Not only has the roster changed over the years of the character, thought not their names, no less than three iterations of Miss Scarlett have been asian and several EU versions have her asian too.

So aside from the name change its actually nothing new.
And originally Mr Green was Reverend Green. Ms White Was originally an elderly cook, later sometimes a housekeeper, a young maid, etc.

And even an african american.

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

Mighty conflict of interest there, ! :D

That issue was actually first raised by Calithena, former TheRPGSite poster, Fight On! editor and all-around cool guy. Everyone has flaws, that was his (and he might actually have been trolling).

Altogether, the furor over the Crusades is weird as hell. As far as I could tell, it mostly used to be viewed in historical canon as an exercise in futility: ephemeral crusader kingdoms, crusaders being cunningly manipulated in the Byzantine - Venetian shadow war, and the ultimate folly of the Children's Crusade. It was, if anything, being viewed as originally idealistic but ultimately foolish, a cautionary tale. How that has morphed into WHITEY BAD is a bizarre turn of events. Although it seems most of European history is viewed through the same lens, while, for example, the hideous slavery and near-genocidal wars endured by Europeans under the Turks is forgotten about, or written off as a minor event.

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.

An obsession with numerology, secret messages, and hidden content on tapes played backwards is the ultimate sign SJWs have turned into a laughable copy of the Evangelicals. Except instead of wanting to burn your RPG books, they are... uh, they want to burn your RPG books? Yeah, it checks out. They are fundies, with a different set of books they are thumping instead of the KJV Bible.

If we're doing an 80s reboot, I need A LOT more hair metal.

Cleanse is easily the most ridiculous banning for that very reason, and keep in mind that they're looking for more cards to ax. A lot of people are already buying up cards with the expectations that they'll become collectible after getting banned in the near future. I've heard Reparations is the one most people are expecting to be most likely to go next.

I swear, if they ban Mass Calcify over this garbage I'm done with them as a company. That's one of the best cards in my mono-white angels EDH deck.

Is anyone REALLY surprised at all this? The retroactive racism bullshit is how these clowns justify tearing down Confederate monuments and renaming military bases. Western culture has been infested with such self-loathing I don't see any way out except WWIII with Leftists on one side and sane people on the other.

I didn't even hear (or at least don't remember) about the Ottoman Empire or the Islamic Slave Trade till someone brought it up during online discussions about how bad white people universally are, cuz slavery. The main focus in school was about our collective sin for slavery in the New World, particularly from Spain, since I live in a Hispanic island.

I remember one enduring urban legend when I was a kid that would sometimes come up about how the Crest toothpaste company logo was Satanic. People would go on about the moon and the 13 stars, and how it was all low key Satanic symbolism (now I wonder if the 13 stars represented the 13 Colonies, since it's a 'Murican company). That's how insane people used to be during the Satanic Panic, they would desperately look for signs of Satanic worship in the back of toothpaste.

And we have the same thing now, only now it revolves around the Cult of Interactionality and the Church of Social Justice. I am convinced that there is a fundamentalist tendency in people that's tied to whatever prevailing narrative and dominant moral system in society, and that SJWs represent that new Moral Majority.

I liken to something like this...

There is a crazy man, that insists he's a cannibal. And you're skeptical. He REEEEEEE's! And bites off his toes to prove it. And you're like "whoa"... but you could just be craaaazy. Cannibal? ehh... it's just toes, but maybe you're really a cannibal, but you know... toes. Then he pulls out a machete and starts hacking off his leg at the knee, and starts digging in.

And now... you're like. "Yeah... crazy and cannibal. I wonder how far this is gonna go." But deep down... you know how far it will go.
