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.

Nah, they wouldn't be that smart. They still think 'transphobia' is an actual word when it's not (trans is a prefix and phobia is a suffix and the word is missing its root) and something that exists which it doesn't (nobody is afraid of a transgender person).

Regardless, I look forward to the accusations she is certain to eventually make against wotc.

It seems 100% certain.

"I despise weak men in positions of power, and that's 95% of game industry leadership. "

Isnt that why RPGs companies are so woke in the first place?
I read this thread, and just had to say . . . I think I love you.

But only platonically. Don't get your hopes up. I'd only break your heart.

But in all seriousness, I think you're spot on. A lot of us were thinking it, but you said it. Oh, that was clever. You're my new sig, you know. Sort of. I think you'll get it.  ;)

I get the impression that Woke people such as Jeremy Crawford seem programmed to believe whatever Price says, and always think she'll go after someone else - the bad people, not them.

My first experience of Jessica Price was on the Paiso message boards from around 2012. I had no idea who this person was, but I saw her completely wreck the boards, turning them from the laid back 'fun and happy place' that Momma Bear Lisa Stevens wanted, to something more resembling RPGNet. I had to stop posting there. It was quite chilling how one bad apple staff member could ruin a substantial community like that. She has been an engine of destruction ever since, ruining whatever she touches.

  She seems to be "that person" who has been screwed over or surrounded by "idiots" and "istaphobes" where ever she goes.   I notice with people like that and all their stories there is one consistent thing they seem to miss in all their stories about wrong doings and dealing with "evil doers", and it is they are in every story....  I feel like a person who works on developing a game should probably be a person who I only know their name if I go looking for it in the book cover, and then the only reason I do that is because of how impressed I am with the game.   I should NOT know who they are because they have 1111110000 stories about their trials and tribulations of day to day life.   If she wants to be a professional blogger/internet personality I think that is fine, but working for a major corporation and having some of those stories?  Holy shit, management at some of these places has got to be fucktarded to keep hiring this nut.

I just wanted to say, not that all women are moms, but I always thought the female version of mansplaining was momsplaining, because its the kind of thing my mom would do.   I never really thought it was a "man only" thing.

Pretty much spot on.

Reading her comments about how they constantly had to remove stuff from Mona's writing because of theosophy, madness mechanics, etc etc, I kinda wish Mona leaves Paizo and starts making somethng without woke editorial oversight... Sounds like he had some interesting ideas.

He seems to be an old school designer to at least some degree. He *likes* D&D in direct contrast to many of those writing for wotc/paizo these days. He is over 40 and his interests were developed and education happened before wokeness metastasized and spread everywhere. so I agree that I'd like to see him develop something without having to get it past the commissar.

Have things really become this insane?
I'm 55. My profile won't record this. It's only right younger members know how old I am.

This was my experience too. I was already my out the door there earlier- nothing to do with the rising SJW bullshit flooding us today, but the signs were definitely there. When she arrived on the forums, I remember thinking she was some kind of joke, but honestly the forums were already full of hotheads from the Nerdzerker Edition Wars. She was just a hydrogen bomb on the pre-existing bonfire.

I pretty much laugh at her, she clearly is a pathological narcissist frolicking in the shitstorms she helps create just to get some pathetic clout without actually producing anything useful. It's a common pattern.

Give it another decade... when she starts to hit "the Wall" and she'll stew in her own miserable life alone, with a herd of cats.
