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?

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.

The reason why SJWs prefer not to make their own games is because they know nobody will honestly buy it to play. The most people will do is give money to virtue signal and then let the game rot in their libraries.

Also, the SJWs are hypocrites. They decry Paizo for giving groups the option to fight slavers (and writing in that it's literally against the game rules to buy slaves in-game), and then make a game where the main villain country executes homosexuals and feminists. So by their logic, it's okay to "offend" women and gay people by making your main villain Gilead, but it's not okay to "offend" african-americans by making your main villain the Confederacy?

Nah, real reason SJWs prefer not to make their own games is because they're lazy, entitled and inept. They're so devoid of any genuine values or principles, and can potentially make so much money from Kickstarter, even if they don't fullfil their crap, that they'd jump at the chance to grab that cash if they were willing to actually DO something, instead of just whine that somebody else hasn't, which is far more effortless and cathartic.

But those who can't, teach. And those who can't teach, criticize. And SJWs can't even criticize well, cuz they lack the internal logic or consistency to even do THAT. So they just whine instead. And on the off chance do something, it's products like these, where you can't even tell what they offer that's different from other RPGs.

At least someone is trying to do something instead of destroying more original IP and morph it into a bastardized form no one can recognize.

C for effort, Solid D- on delivery.  There was an attempt.

I’m currently trying both the creating and criticizing parts. Criticizing is just not fun because I don’t feel I’m actually enlightening anybody and just going around in circles. The creating part is needlessly hard because I’m so burned out and plagued with self-doubt. But I digress

I personally couldn't give a shit about someone's shenanigans in the bedroom as long as it's between consenting adults. Also, it's none of my business and vice versa.

But why do you need to have this 'particular title' in order to play 'gay' games if that's your thing? Oh wait... You fucking don't! You can play ANY RPG whatever way your group wants. It can be as Heterosexual or gay as you want.

Call me cynical... But this just appears to be another way to cash in on the woke scold crowd.
