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.

Holy Shit, Batman!!!
I spit on your pronouns!!!  If the world goes crazy, and I need to use the pages of RPG books to start fires for cooking and warmth; D&D 4th Edition will be the first to burn!!!

Back when I started out in the hobby these used to be called "any old system you want to RP your character as gay or include gay NPCs on". And I'm pretty sure it was already like that before I started gaming. Now you apparently need a system that explicitly says you can make your characters gay.

Clickbait RPG. No real substance to really make it stand out. Which is sad. A game should stand out. It should have its own unique identity that makes it special.

Mostly? I'm just sad to see this. The author had nothing to say about the substance of the game itself. Just clickbait. Why even publish this at all?

Gay
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

The fact that it is advertised as ideal for solo play...  :o

The villain of the setting outlaws same-sex love and gender non-conformity. Because of course it would. The irony here is that this neatly describes Iran, the paragon of transgender rights.

From the preview, it doesn't seem to spew hate or put limits on who can play it, so it's fine by me. Not my cup of tea, but maybe someone else's. Live and let live, etc. etc. carry on.

I dont get it.  If it is a solo RPG then can you not already just do what ever you want?

This is what many here have said they want to see - the SJWs making their own games, sink or swim in the marketplace.

I'm not interested in it, didn't even click the link. Let it sink.

I got spammed by them. Unsubbed from their emails. I must have one of their MicroRPGs from the past that isn't gay?

Escape from Planet Matriarchy! RPG has way more substance and role-play value.

there are usually some procedural instructions, I mean you can ditch it but then you abandon game aspect.

So what does this game do that hundreds of other fantasy RPGs don't?

It includes a rainbow logo that says "Gay Realms" in the book cover. That's all I got from the description.
