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.

Neither of which has Murderhobos in the title and you don't create a Murderhobo you create a PC. And the rules aren't rules designed to encourage said play style. It's about having their heads explode not about playing like that.

You might actually want to look at the rules I linked.

When these clowns want to ban a word, its time to use that word as much as possible.

I'm not even fan of the "murderhobo" play style. I'm good with "wandering heroes" or "wandering mercenary" campaigns, but I want the PCs to make sense and why they are wandering far and wide.

Nanny Harpy!!!! OMG! Perfect.


Quote from: BoxCrayonTales;1106102
Remember when there were hundreds of obsessive anti-SJWs videos blasting SJWs for complaining about Doom being offensive?


I missed that one. What was the issue? No female demons?

Yeah, that lack of realism always bothered me too. Especially as the Mancubus was clearly based on Rosie O'Donnell.

Another game suggestion (not personal since I've never played it):

https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/129865/MurderHobos

Quote
MurderHobos gets to the meat of dungeon crawling: killing things and taking their stuff.

Your character doesn't have Charisma or Wisdom. Your character has stats like Killing, Avoiding Being Killed, and Knowing Shit. The classes are things like Sneaky Bastard and Unhinged Priest. You roll a d20, add a few modifiers, and compare it to a target number.

But you will not be adventuring in an easy world where gold rains down on you from the heavens. No. Your weapons will break. Magical healing gets really weird, really fast. If you take more hits than your allowance, you die.

At least you heal up every day. Because you're a MurderHobo.

MurderHobos is a simple OSR game that hews closely to d20 mechanics. The stats are silly, but they do make a playable game.

Yet another post that isn't about gaming. It might be interesting to wade through the irony of people bitching and whining about how politics has gotten into their gaming, even as they push their own politics almost every fucking time they post. Pundit literally can't check his outrage. And the jack-booted echo chamber is incapable of criticizing their own ranks (like many a gutless politician these days). Whining tits, every one.

I keep leaving, coming back, leaving, coming back, because there are often some good conversations here that are actually about gaming. But, especially of late, the place has devolved like the media, where the fringe crackpots are the loudest voices. The rpgsite isn't about rpgs. It's basically become another shithole, a place where too many cannot extricate themselves from their politics and simply be human beings, discussing a shared interest (and did you ever stop once, even once, to consider that those SJWs and you DO share a common interest? Or is that just too much to stomach?). Fuck, who am I kidding -- this has been a simmering shithole from the beginning hasn't it?

Fuck it. This just isn't worth the time. You wanna waste all that energy whipping yourselves into sound and fury signifying nothing, you go right ahead. I'm gonna find some folks who want to actually discuss gaming, rather than their unending hatred of all things not perfectly in step with themselves. Life's too short, man. Some of you are way too busy wasting it by making your own hells. Hope that works out for ya. I've got better things to do than read the same, tired bullshit. Goodbye.

Emphasis mine.

I resent that I don't want to control how others play or failing that to destroy their hobby.

If you feel like you might be forming an opinion you are already a danger to yourself and others.

cranebump could be right, there does seem to be an excess amount of pearl clutching.

Who cares if people use the term murderhobo or not, the players that go around murderhoboing wont give a crap either way.
"There can be no middle ground with bigots. Bigots want to deny the rights and livelihood of people different from them. They want them to cease existing, either by going underground or by murdering them. There is no "let's meet in the middle" with that. To suggest there can be is ignorance" RPGNet

It's commentary about the hobby; pretty sure that counts.

Nice rant, but it's obvious your main gripe isn't that the RPGSite has non-gaming threads, but that people you disagree with aren't silenced. Have fun at rpg.net!

EDIT: The best part is there are several links to games in this thread, and a legitimate discussion of sorts. You can't handle Mos Eisley, that's fine, but don't insist those of us who like the chaos are somehow less sophisticated than a true gent such as yourself.

Nyooooo! No "goodbye cruel world!", cranebump! :( Think of the children! :) The children need you!

... I dunno where that was going but wherever it went, there we now are. :) And that's worth remembering.

Although I think cranebump's articulation could have used some work, it hits on an important point. This forum (like every other) has a tendency to make mountains out of molehills, to paint politics with a ridiculously broad brush, and to hypocritically criticize similar behavior in the outrage target of the week.
