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.

If you had ANY doubts it was gonna be woke as fuck.
If we DON'T get dangerhaired genderfluid elves, nonbinary dwarves, halflings who tick all the NAMBLA fetish boxes, oppressed orcs in tune with nature and all ciswhite males take a -5 to all stats as reparations for past oppressions, then I'm going to accuse them of being insufficiently woke for 2023 Seattle values.

Make the bastards live up to their own idiot standards. Then mock them for their idiot standards.

Black Flag is not going to save the D&D community.

From the newest Kobold Press newsletter, see image below.

The point is just to damage WotC. The point would also be to split up support between Paizo and Kobold. If Paizo becomes the 800 pound gorilla with PF2e, they're just as woke as WotC, so that doesn't help us. If defection from WotC and D&D is more evenly distributed, that overall weakens the power SJWs have over the hobby as a whole. If people are wondering if they should go to PF2e or Black Flag, the comparison obviously invites suggestions for other systems as well. Which could mean Savage Worlds or Castles & Crusades, and strengthening either of them would only be good.

This went from fuchsia hair to full-time SS uniform pretty quick, my friend.

I'm sure there's already an anime waifu in that very combination.  8) Probably with a gundam mech not too far away, too.

You know, people keep comparing non-TSR D&D to deck-building in Magic: the Gathering. But maybe it's more like Katamari Damacy. You keep sticking shit on your characters until they are big enough to be a star.

Take a look at my post just above and you will see that Kobold Press is every bit as woke.  That ad is for raising money for the Trevor Project.  Google that if you are not familiar.

Because I have high curiosity and poor impulse control... it took me less than 30 seconds to find that combination on the internet.   ;D

Strangely enough, I'm an hour in to this chat and she's actually given some solid RPG design advice.  So, I have some hope, at least mechanically, for Black Flag.  Now, what happens in the fluff text remains to be seen.

  One can be both thoroughly progressive and a good game designer--see Jonathan "I'll use my games to raise money for Planned Parenthood" Tweet.

Take a look at my post that you quoted. You're missing the point.
