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.

It's just a shame you're having to fight the game though, just because its' authors are pushing their personal political agenda into an arena where it's not needed.  :(

That all sounds like enough red flags that they should be moved to Red, yes? That they're distorting their own established products to fit their political ideology?

Can someone here do that?

Meanwhile, it appears that WotC/Hasbro is facing an internal revolt from employees annoyed at the parent company for not taking sides on one of the most controversial issues in American public life:

We, as employees of Wizards of the Coast, are frustrated, disappointed, and completely dissatisfied with Hasbro’s out of touch, tone-deaf, and lackluster response to Friday’s Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade. (1/11)

I was interested in "Death in Space", and then I read that it's by the Stockholm Kartell (MORK BORG) guys rather than Free League proper.

So, f-k that.

GenCon goes full segregationist.  BIPOC only room and events.

That is awesome.

Colored-only room? BAD.
BIPOC-only room? OMFG AWESOME! (Soyface.jpg)

Smol person said to me something about the great "Switch" between Democrats and Republicans. I just laughed. I told her to look objectively at Affirmative Action, at the re-institution of segregation, and so on.

It's clear that mainstream Democrats are still mainstream Democrats when it comes to race. The party that gave us the KKK is still the same party. They just managed to put lipstick on the pig.

Remember back when it was 'colored only'? Now it's 'persons of color only'! Cause that's so much better?

I don't know how they managed to hijack language and culture this way, but it's horrible. Absolutely horrible.

They're re-instituting all these old, horrible ideas that they had... like the absolute worst parts of American culture, they are recreating today. I don't get it.

Moving the goalposts from "equality" to "equity" is so horrible. It'll be the death of society. Anyone with a fundamental belief in the equality of Man will be destroyed in the deluge of wokeness. It's just so vile and disgusting. Justice can't exist anymore under these conditions, and there will be nothing left to save after that. The death spasms of cities like Chicago and NYC are just horrible. Terrible.

It's so I can't look at another guy and call him "Brother" any more. I need to find his pronouns first, and figure out his political affiliation so that I don't acknowledge the badwrong person as being humyn.

I do hope some caucasion person goes in and says they are Elon Musk style African-American.

Or is that not allowed you have to have dark skin to truly be allowed enterance.

  BIPOC specifically says Black Indigenous People Of Color.    NO SOUTH AFRICANS ALLOWED (unless they have some color).   In fairness...I could not tell in the article if they were the only people allowed in the room, or if the room was just presented in such a way to make a white person really question if they should go inside.   Either way, presenting it as a lounge IMO has to be the medal winner.

One thing that gets me... like, Pakistanis in England. Yeah, sure, minority and all that.
You really need to coddle them and get extra Pakistanis to come to England? Okay, sure, whatever. Not my business.

How many Pakistani people are in the world? 217 million live in Pakistan?
How many English people? There's ~67 million in the UK (including Pakistanis).

So, I says to myself, "Myself, I'm having a hard time figuring out this minority business!"
67... carry the 1........... uhhhhhhhh... 67 seems a little lower than 217.
Call me crazy, but I'm not seeing it.
Maybe I'm wrong about that, but I didn't fully appreciate Linear Algebra in grad school, so I know I'm not a quant or anything.

And, one supposes that Pakistanis aren't considered a "minority" in the  United States because reasons, and Indian-derived people from the subcontinent are considered the badwrong kind of color due to whatever the fk the Democratic party says...

So BIPOC doesn't even apply to Pakistanis in America like they do in England (since they use BAME or whatever, which also makes no got-dang sense), but everyone got to have some kind of performative justice that makes no got-dang sense in actual reality.

These wokes are just making up whatever crap, and we all have to deal with it because it makes no logical sense.

Some people sure like the whole alphabet soup of identity crap.

Look at me!! That’s my letter!! I’m so included!! Can you feel the diversity!?!

I wonder if they’ll do a pencil test at the door to see who’s allowed in.
Hit me up if you're in the Toronto area and you wanna play Hyperborea 3E!
