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.

WOTC loves to talk the talk. But rarely walk the walk.

Remember that during playtest Mearls was chirping buzzwords left and right. Very little of that made it into the core books or anywhere else even. WOTC staff love their buzzwords. But like all good SJWs. They dont actually do anything. Or what they do actually do is so demeaning as to make racist people look welcoming.

A new adventure-filled hardback book release, without any harm caused by conflict.  That sure does sound exciting....

Whenever I play D&D; the Drow are Extra Dark, and Extra Evil.

Just the way Gary Gygax intended.

Greetings!

Leftists never do comprehend economics.

I've always wondered why Liberals love Marxism so much. The evidence proves through history that Marxist economies fail utterly, and create impoverished shitholes of masses of people living in abject poverty, squalor, and misery. The Soviet Union, Eastern Germany, Poland, Eastern Europe, Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela--they are all fucking shitholes under Marxism. Communist China--before they embraced a heavily modified state-influenced hyper-capitalism--they too, were a shithole. Many have also observed that, aside from a thin, politically-approved elite, Communist China *still* has a hugely backwards and poor state.

Over and over again, Marxism has produced nothing but poverty and misery--even in the best of circumstances, for the briefest of moments. The rest of the time, in addition to poverty and misery, there is absolute bloodbaths, mass murder, prison camps, indoctrination, tyranny, brutality, and mass-scale terror.

And yet, we still have these bright-eyed college students, nicely-dressed cubicle office workers, and latte-sipping game industry workers insisting with such fervency that Marxism is the ultimate good and best way for society. They champion this same bullshit in fantasy game campaigns, like the Radiant Citadel.

So sad.

Semper Fidelis,

My favorite part is how Radiant Citadel seems to have socialist underpinnings, with heavy hints that money doesn't matter, yet it's also simultaneously supposed to be a trade hub at the same time. It's like, make up your minds people! Do you hate capitalism and money doesn't matter? Or do you love commerce and want to take everyone's money?

It's like these people can't resist the urge to stick their ideology into everything, even if the core concept bears no relation to it.

Maybe it's all a barter economy? After all, one could make the case that it's not trade or money socialism abjures, it's capital, i.e. the accumulation of wealth to the point of creating an investor vs. non-investor class.

(Oooh -- now I'm imagining a city driven by a vast web of necromantic talismans, where the currency everybody uses is literally drawn from one's own life force, and you can never buy more than what you decide you can afford to sacrifice in bodily vitality and health.)
