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.

So, a cheating scumbag met another cheating scumbag whoe didn't want to stop being a cheating scumbag...

I think I should feel sorry for someone but I don't, if a person is willing to cheat on their spouse/SI to "be with you"... What makes you think that person has any kind of morals?

Greetings!

So true, brother!

I was talking with a friend about this kind of stuff right here. People that have morals and self-discipline often tend towards living lives that are considered by many to be structured, routine, and boring. As I told my friend though, in the long run, they are happier, and have nothing to be ashamed of.

Scum like this, however, have lives filled with constant drama, bullshit, and emotional turmoil. So many people like these have lives that are absolute chaos and filled with pain, for everyone within reach. But, of course, these people always have a litany of excuses and rationale for why none of the pain, chaos, and bullshit in their lives is ever their fault--no, it's always everyone else's fault. These people never seem to come to grips with their own deep-seated immorality, their own corruption, their selfishness, and terrible judgment.

Watch them wallow and choke on shit. Their lives are an endless cycle of bullshit. Ever notice how all of their lovers and so many of their friends and social circles are the same as them?

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

Feels like you're a hair away from telling them to accept Christ.

Hi SHARK!

True, true brother, they claim the structure is oppressive and immoral but the truth is they only want the freedom to wallow in their filth and to have the world shower them with "Stunning & Brave!" awards.

Guess I should thank them tho, they managed to make me find my faith again.

I believe it bears repeating that it is truly a sign of our times that one of the most hated men in America is a liberal guy who thinks people need to show some fucking personal responsibility for a change.

Clown world.

"Liberal" for a definition of Liberal that includes saying that "truthfully telling the Nazis where the Jews are hiding," is a higher good than "lying to the Nazis to save someone's life," yes. He's a truly old-school Liberal.

Not that Peterson, unlike Hill, actually has anything to do with any Role-playing Games.

Actually, I find it odd that people who indulge in what is probably the first fully post-modern hobby (rpg's) are so enamored of a guy who believes that the entire postmodern endeavor is a crock.

He may literally say "Face your dragons", but I'm sure he means it figuratively, and from what I've seen of the man he would certainly disapprove of you getting together with a bunch of friends to slay those dragons over pizza and Diet Coke.   ;D

Source for where he said that?

Define postmodernism?

Prove TTRPGs ARE postmodernist.

From what you have seen of Jordan Peterson you have concluded that he hates when people get together with their friends to slay dragons over pizza and diet coke?

I think he must be talking about post modernist TTRPG elements like making Black People into Orcs, taking away XP rewards and eliminating Alignment.
