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.

Must you do penance?  And if so, then what?

I must confess; I have resisted the urge to purchase the product which I shouldn't have purchased, for 5 years now.  I have wanted to "borrow" ideas from the product, without giving the authors my money.  I have done so previously, but I have been aggravated by the lack of a print copy to reference.  So now; I have given in, against my better judgement.  If it helps my case any; I was spending other peoples' money, and not my own.

All I have left to cling to; is not giving the authors credit publicly, for creating a game full of good ideas.

Or spend 2x that amount on something those people would hate.
Like, RPG stuff from Venger or Pundit. Or Bibles and ammo.
Joe Rogan and Steven Crowder merch.
A gold-plated pocket-sized Ben Shapiro figurine (a.k.a. life-size).
Rittenhouse T-shirts and MAGA hats.

I'll still get a copy (in whatever form is cheapest) if I really want the game. Unlike the insane far-left that will boycott everything they don't agree with, I can separate the art from the artist.

GREAT SPIRIT, DM Curt! All of your ideas are outstanding here!

Spend double the money on things, resources, and people that the Liberals hate.

Beautiful!

I'm of the belief that a good idea is a good idea no matter where it comes from. So credit can go where credit is due. If someone makes a good part of a system, that's great.

That being said, it's probably sending the wrong message to these people if you buy their product, especially since they're not actually looking for the money, but to push their propaganda.

You could waste your cash on that dross... Or just simply buy more indie games from publishers who make very little.

Ammo isn't dross. The rest of the list is up to whatever. 😉

Fair point... If I could own a gun I'd buy ammo. :)

I'm a firm believer in keeping the Bible in one hand, and a gun in the other hand.

I have my King James Bible, and a sweet, sweet AR-15, with plenty of ammunition ready to go.

That way, when I am out in the wilderness amidst Nature, I can preach the Word of the Lord to the lost as I go hunting. ;D

Nothing wrong with that.  I'm starting a boycott of Games Workshop but I can almost guarantee that within a couple years I'll be sorely tempted to hop back on.  Assuming they don't go broke for their wokeness...

I think it's hard not to have one golden calf or two... But I'll never go back to FATE even though I like the game itself.

*Laughing* AHHH!!! Yes. Hilarious! Indeed, that kind of penalty would be severe. I'm a good marksman, but yeah, you need both hands to properly shoot a rifle.

That reminds me, I'm looking forward to going to the range again here soon. Gotta keep those skills *sharp*.
