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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

No one actually plays "Thirsty Sword Lesbians". It's a product that only exists so people who probably don't play any RPGs at all from Tumblr, Twitter and Kotaku (apparently) can talk about how "important" it is.

I want it on the record that at some point in the not-too-distant future, if that game is even mentioned it will be to discuss how it's some variant of exploitative and insensitive.  And Evil Hat, if they're still around, will be apologizing for it.

...Being flogged even more, as when you apologise is, for the woke, like admitting to be an heretic to the Inquisition. You will burn at the stake for the Greater Glory of God.
For every idiot who denounces Ayn Rand as "intellectualism" there is an excellent DM who creates a "Bioshock" adventure.

"Queers are responsible for all progress! Praise us!" Effing narcissists.

The irony is that "queer" is a slur for gays and bisexuals now used by spicy straights to feel better about themselves. Effing homophobes.

Man, I'm so glad D&D has been saved. Schwew, I was getting worried. The she/her author sets us straight....uh correct.

Saved or destroyed?

So it's fine to say RPGs don't need to be "woke" they are already inclusive, but when a queer person says D&D is inclusive that's bad. Kind of seems like you just don't like queer people.

There is no such thing as "queer" people, in society or RPGs.  Anyone who says differently is just attention-whoring.

I agree, at least as far as YouTube is concerned. I occasionally look for actual plays of various woke rpgs on YouTube and it's pretty much crickets for Thirsty Sword Lesbians and Coyote & Crow. There were some initial play tests but there's been nothing ongoing.

An recruitment ad for Coyote & Crow recently popped up on RPGcrossing. It only garnered interest from two people so far.
