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.

Well, they are bad for playing D&D when there are much better games out there.

I saw that post earlier when they hadn’t gotten much attention yet. I’m mildly surprised anyone bothered to take the bait.

I totally agree on this point. At best, D&D has only been a fallback/compromise candidate since the late 80s.

Thank goodness for that and thanks to the "moral black hole."

I was beginning to fear D&D wasn't transgressive anymore.

Powerkill satirized “rpgs are crime fantasy!” in the 90s. The wokescolds are a few decades too late.

After watching the video, all I can say is that Patricia Pulling lives on.....

Greetings!

Yep! All the socially retarded troglodytes needed to get their asses kicked. Scum like this stupid fucker needs to be "Bullied" relentlessly, to constantly remind them of why they are worthless scum, and deserve it.

This is why we are in the state of affairs we have today, because society allowed schools en masse to be feminized and turned into entitled pussies.

What is missing so much with these kinds of morons, is they didn't get their asses beat enough. Like you said, my friend.

It's amazing how more polite, intelligent, and civil society is when if you run your mouth like a jackass, or just stupidly offend people left and right, you get punched in the fucking mouth and beaten the fuck down. While everyone watching stares at the jackass and laughs at them.

It narrows the mind. Weakens the body. And robs the soul of spirit and determination. Comfort is neither welcome nor tolerated here."

Greetings!

*Laughing* REEE! REEE!

The Twitter guy Reeing about D&D violence is a fucking pussy, and a Marxist bitch.

Violence is *good*--especially when it is unleashed against Marxists.

Throughout history, justice is established, and evil is defeated through violence. Violence is a very effective and strong way to accomplish many different goals. Of course, one of the best goals is having enemies killed, so that they cannot continue to actively fight against you. You also don't have to worry about them whispering and scheming against you, or trying to brainwash or groom your children.

Many of these virtues are reflected in the game, which is good. It is especially delicious because it reminds the cock-sucking Marxists that the good, righteous people are coming for them, and someday it can be their day to be strung the fuck up. That thought terrifies them, like scheming rats in the sewer. Of course, this is the just fate of evil, selfish, wicked people that desire to establish tyranny over people that refuse to kneel to Marxism.

The game is about heroes fighting against evil, and monsters.

Great video again, Pundit!

I'll bite, and I've actually enjoyed D&D when I've played it but...
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay (Any edition)
Dark Heresy (1at edition)
Rogue Trader
Deathwatch
Only War
Legend of The Five Rings (4th Edition)
Call of Cthulhu
Runequest
Paranoia
Pendragon
Numenera
Starwars (d6)
Nobilis (BWB)
Judge Dredd (GW)
Wild Talents
Mythras

But speaking to the tweet itself, violence without justification for entertainment value applies equally to a Bugs Bunny cartoon, or Tom and Jerry. Luckily they are fictional. And that's basically as far as the discussion needs to go.
