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.

Wow I don’t know how eclipse phase/post human studios isn’t on it. That’s an oversight theyre definitely red. I’ll add em

Though I'd note that their note is much much more polite than other simmilar ones. They basically called it "biased" rather than objectively moral or something. They did not send political opponents to therapy to see what's wrong with their life. That's fair warning and civilised one.

Their only real mistake is belief that someone authoritarian inclined - like myself - could not like their setting, or find something for myself there, based just on their own bias.

With every such note I make notice to pirate their game, and then run it straight against everything they believe and possibly stream it just for fun.

For a while, they were giving away a lot of their first edition books as free PDFs hoping people who liked them would buy hardcopies or PDFs with watermarks. Sort of doing their stuff as freeware or tip ware.

I think Jeff Dee is already on there. I can confirm this as well as he runs games at all my conventions and he's pretty insufferable.  I also saw him eat chicken wings at the bar with no sauce, so not sure he's even a human. 😀

I’m sure he only did that to get a reaction out of you, so that he could “cancel culture” you on his Facebook.  :P

Have they attacked individuals, supported Cancel campaigns, or is it just general spewing? I guess it makes sense not to buy from people who openly hate you, anyway.

I always find it difficult when friends and friends of friends get Internet derangement. The tendency is to put up with it from friends, and discard not-actual-friends. Brannan is a friend of a friend of mine, and follows some of my blogs. I know I've been uncomfortable with some things he's said. No doubt people feel the same about me - though I tend to keep my mouth shut concerning politics/ideology these days.

Go-go Ernie Gygax. Please don't let us down, I want old TSR back SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO bad.

Prepare for eternal disappointment.

Can't blame a man for having a dream. Though you'd think there'd be more bitterness towards the TSR that pushed Gary out

I am sure that TBP was trying to redeem she who must not be named.

Oh for sure. They have already passed out bans for people spouting the same hate facts their site owner wrote about her in his book.


Coming full circle...

Maybe I'm reading too much into it; but a quick glance on RPGPUB, RPG.NET, and ENWorld, showed that NuTSR is still a very hot topic for other sites.

Threads about NuTSR are in the top half, or near the top of the first page of their respective discussion boards. Whereas on here, a site with less traffic, it is not even on the first page.

I can only imagine the melt down if the TSR trademark was owned by someone competent that was putting out a quality Fantasy RPG...

How does being 'hostile' to Christians on their social media got to do with anything? Christianity/Islam and all other religions are pure bullshit.

But what has that got to do with RPGs, creators and the Red List?

It’s the entire essence of wokedom. I realize that Pundit is a pagan, but all you’ve gotten out of your bullshit disruptive comment is that you are now on my Ignore List.

That's like your opinion... man. And yet being openly hostile to conservative religions especially using the same social media you use for promoting your work, and selling RPGs is generally considered as woke behavior.

Designer being privately anticlerical, designer attacking religions using his business. Yeah, red list. As you noticed it's really eclectic.

But that's not what I said though, is it?

American Christians seem to get all butt hurt when someone criticizes their fictional religion (same as Islam). But what I want to know is, what has that actually got to do with gaming? And why would someone be put on a 'red list' because they criticize religion?

And incidentally, if you are following that 'rule', then why have you got several designers who openly mock religion in the green list? Hm..

For some reason, a few of you chaps seem on here seem to be conflating mocking religion with wokeness. And that doesn't really stack. So do you want free speech or not? Being 'woke' is about forcing their agenda down your throat and forcing you to comply. I don't remember anyone who laughs at religion doing the same.

I’m going back over a few entries that don’t have enough real evidence to support. Chaosium is one that needs a better description but can probably stay yellow

I’m looking at Jeff Dee it was people here who said that, but I’m looking through his blog and social media he hasn’t really been active in a while and most of what I can find on Twitter is gaming related and his blog is generally doesn’t touch politics. His atheist blog hasn’t been updated  since 2011 and is your typical evangelical atheist

Anything on Expeditious Retreat Press?  I've run a few of their adventures which I thought were great.  I don't see anything political from them, which is a good sign.
