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.

Chris Perkins learns the hard way that the D&D SJWs will destroy you no matter how much you submit to them.






Rhetorical questions perhaps.  But where does someone end up after regularly and recently producing “problematic” content?


So suddenly and totally your life work is problematic.  You see it now, that all your lore about orcs, until this year is racist but suddenly you’re enlightened, right when everyone else is, and your renounce it all.  What are the odds your conversion happened just now, right now, when the weather and winds are favorable?


So if they bust his chops over a statement to the sun with most uncharitable read ever are they now going to go through his catalog and excoriate him for it?

You're now an unperson ad we no longer talk about you, much less acknowledge your existence. At no time in the past were orcs ever treated as anything other than equals, and their genocide at the hands of filthy humans is a thinly disguised commentary about how white colonialism disenfranchised the morally superior native cultures.

You bigot.

The Twitter mob isn't consistent. They'll flip from "you can enjoy problematic things" to ignoring the transgressions of their favorites to suddenly trying to burn down their lives and unperson them from their careers. It barely can be measured or anticipated which of their random results shall occur, or for how long that particular stance will exist.

But I do enjoy WotC being tormented by exactly to whom they pandered. That's definitely been worth many a chuckle.

Of course, what's not funny at all is the mob's power and how we MAY (emphasis on MAY) see the mob's will become the policy of DriveThruRPG and Amazon, thus destroying the main commercial avenues for deplorable wrongthinkers.

"never done anything of note"


I could not agree more. He has, for 20+ years produced the most consistently crap adventure modules/books/magazines/materials I have encountered since 1977. I have no clue how he ended up being the most prolific adventure writer since WOTC bought TSR or what people see in him in this regard.


To succeed as a professional writer you can be mediocre, you can be expensive/difficult, or you can be unreliable with deadlines, but only one out of three. And WoTC doesn't hire full-time for Talent, so that's the only one they don't need. While freelance or indie writers could be talented/cheap/late, or talented/expensive/timely, or mediocre/cheap/timely, the WoTC salaried writers can only ever be the third.

Pundit, loved this. You're very insightful. I'm so tired of WotC as a company. I'm just so glad the OSR community is there to not give a crap about being woke.


Thanks!

Not quite.The other type that gets hired consistently are the workhorses. Those who can hit deadlines consistently. They may be good, or ok, but rarely bad. With some notable exceptions. Especially true in the art biz.

Also WOTC can and will hire talent. But miss a few deadlines and thats that sometimes unless your work sells well. But thats true even in the indie biz. Cant meet deadlines then your work options diminish.
The real problem with WOTC is as usual, marketing. Who seem hellbent on augering WOTC into the dirt.

Perkins has been "the" frontman for WOTC's public campaigns, with all the games he has DM'd in front of the masses.  It's hard for people to like the D&D brand, if they don't like Perkins.  He's so closely associated with D&D, they are pretty much a package deal.


FWIW; I'd rather roll dice in his game, than Matt Mercer's.

Glad to be out of this loop. When hear the name Chris Perkins I think of the "AD&D3E" guy.
