[List] TTRPG Guide to Woke Companies

<< < (2/425) > >>

Godsmonkey:
I would put Chaosium into the yellow:

They changed up the peoples of Dragon Pass making a Celt leaning people far more Mediterranean in the new edition of RuneQuest.

And of course the way they dealt with Sandy Petersons comments.

They have also bent the knee on a few occasions, like throwing support to BLM and LGBTQ+ causes.

Lately they have gone from being my favorite game company of all time, to seriously considering my future purchases.

Also, no Evil Hat? Or is it just a given they are a woke hot mess?

I think "Thirsty Sword Lesbians", the gay romance prison setting book they made, and threatening OneBookShelf into removing a small card game poking fun at GG from DriveThruCards kinda gave that away

Autarch (ACKS) is definitely green unless something changed since a thread similar to this in August (mostly just lurked, finally made an account).

I would also put Goodman Games as yellow, as well as Frog God.

Edit: Evil Hat should be the biggest Red on there.

I would hope Free League isn't woke. I like their products. Is there something you can point me to (link) on this?

Likewise in their OGL at the end of Mork Borg, they state that they reserve legal right to not have their OGL open to content that they deem racist, sexist, homophobic, or hateful.

WOW! that Twitter post. What is Free League thinking? Saying that proceeds from your book sales are going to go to bailing out BLM rioters?

I have a full set of Vaesen books, dice, and a screen --it is all being given away to a buddy in my gaming group tomorrow. Never playing it

Ocule:
Hurray for the replies im glad this is something that seems needed, though it might take me a bit to start getting all these companies up there. Yeah I forgot evil hat, they get their place on the wall of shame where they belong. Kind of wish i had a nice accurate list like this before I made some purchases. Some of these companies are new for me so i'm having to look them up, fortunately the worst offenders dont take much more than a google search or twitter search to see exactly what they stand for

Yep, exactly how I feel about Mork Borg. Bought the book because the art looked cool and I like swapping between stuff like The Black Hack (which David Black is equally woke), OSE, and LotFP and wanted a different lighter system for one shots. Now it's just a shelf book, and my system of choice is Hyperborea for one shots and long term.
