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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Here is why this forum tends to be so stupid. Many people here think Joe Biden is "The Left", when he is actually Far Right and every US republican is just an idiot.

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)

Is there a list of these brave employees so we know who to thank?

It will likely be posted in July and identified as the WotC 2022 Q3 layoffs.

It would not surprise me at all if Jessica Price was involved.

One would think that a toy company would be strongly against abortion. 
The murder of 600,000 babies every year is a significant loss of future customers.

If he wasn't already mentioned, Vincent Baker of lumpley games. During 2020 he tweeted something about the need to abolish the police. I asked if he was willing to try that out in his home town since it was such a great idea. He blocked me, and I threw his shitty little confused mess of an rpg directly in the trash and that was that.
Trying to figure lumpley games out. Their website isn't full of political stuff. Apocalypse World is a huge indie thing, as is Dogs in the Vineyard (which they don't push any more... because Vincent Baker doesn't like "the Western genre and its moral implications" according to the Rpg.net weirdos).

I don't use the Twitter anymore because that's a hellsite echo chamber for morons. I'll guess that his Twitter is a sea of stupid since he appears to be a Masshole, but I'm not going to search his social media history like a RPG.net weirdo.

But... damn. Now I need to look for a good Western RPG because f0ck the idea that Westerns are badwrong.

Anyway, I think it's good that lumpley games doesn't spout political crap on their main page, but the creator is probably problematic (which isn't really a problem for me since I don't post on RPG.net).

I'd recommend Dust Devils by Matt Snyder.  It's a little more on the indie side of things but I've used the 1e version a few times and we've had great fun.  I'm not sure what the second edition adds rules-wise, but I know it includes 3 alternate settings: Deathwish (James Bond style spy setting), Ronin (Kurosawa feudal Japan) and Concrete Angels (Sin City).

That looks good! Checked out a review, and that style of rules light is right up my alley.

Actually, I also own Precis Intermedia's "Coyote Trail", which I thought was good. I just haven't used it yet.

I'd like a good Western RPG, too.  If somebody would license the Guy on a Buffalo and make an RPG of that, I'd buy it in a heartbeat:

You know, I'm familiar with a couple authors who've dabbled in the Western genre a bit. I wonder if they'd be willing (obviously, for the right price) to lend a hand in crafting a wild west RPG?

I might float the idea to them. See if there's interest.
