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.

I have two local game stores and they have avoided this for the moment. Rest assured if the woke ever get their way they will go this route or worse.

Weird. I wouldn't run a game there. I suppose that's kinda what they're after: only attracting the kind of DM that would agree to such things. Whatever.
That rug really tied the room together, man.

It causes other problems, of course.

None of these rules seem, in themselves, bad. The problem is the people who are in WotC & its community organization. Unfortunately no amount of rules can actually fix problems that arise from broken, petty people.

Fuck this noise.

it's bad enough that fucking GW has commissars at every official 40k event to make sure you only use their overpriced, limited availability limited options miniatures and terrain, and that your army isn't offensive to anyone (No slannesh daemons with big dicks or naked tit modelend on them for example)

I hope this dies a quick death.

RPG.net is a cancer on the left and a disgrace to reasonable progressives that should be denounced and shunned by anyone considering themselves a progressive.

I already play MMOs. Why would I want this?

In itself, it's laughable because the real appeal is to do this at home with your friends. Playing in stores at and cons? Why? Hell--as mentioned upthread--I don't even need to be in the same room anymore thanks to VOIP clients like Discord and VTTs like Tabletop Simulator.

Until I see something else that would serve to drive the masses into WOTC's Organized Gulag, I'm not going to freak out over this. I'm going to see it as incompetent overreach.
