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.

Pundit, please stop reading Twitter. While I'm sure that it gives you a lot of laughs, the concentrated stupid of that communications mode just makes everything more dumb. I believe that Twitter does indeed cause brain damage.

Translation = a handful of crackpots on Twitter decided to troll people and say something inflammatory.

Stop the presses.

(C'mon, how would you like everyone to stigmatize gamers by the handful of crackpots who claimed that F.A.T.A.L. was a good idea?  +1 to Jeff.)

The problem is and I see why Pundit keeps bringing this up is that rpg companies and other companies in general listen to those crackpots. It's one thing iif like in the past they were ignored. Not only are they catering to them the companies while losing money doubledown insisting that the sJWs are their core market and telling everyone and anyone who disagrees to politely duck off .

The dildo that is Social Justice, is about a mile long.  And every one of these huge gaming companies is competing to see just how much of it they can stuff up their collective asses.

Their acrobatics will only undermine them as smaller, hungrier, designers create better stuff because they deliver what the gamers want.

I can see why, as a historian, Pundit has his panties in a wad over this...just pure bullshit being pumped out by retards that some gaming companies might use to shape their products. It's amazing to me that it only takes a few moronic tweets to shape policies.

Well then, these socjus types shouldn't have any problems making new, properly aligned worlds and kingdoms, right?

Oh wait. There's a whole horde of issues involved, not the least of which is 'they'd have to do REAL work'.

Far easier to demand that existing worlds be 'trans'formed to suit their preferences - or removed from publication and sale altogether, so the SJW's own garbage is the only product available. For the latter, see: pink slime SF.

This same complaint can be leveled at afrofantasy and asian fantasy, too. We all know why it is not.

All multicultural societies that aren't bigots will eventually homogenize into ethnostates due to assimilation and intermarriage. However much work you put into creating a multicultural society, it will eventually homogenize into an ethnostate unless you write the constituent cultures as racists who frown upon intermixing. That's just how genes and memes work.

I think I know what these SJWs want. They want a generic eurofantasy setting where everybody is black. Somebody should write that.

My take away is that supposedly there is no such thing as historical ethno states, there are just states where everyone is the same ethnicity.
"There can be no middle ground with bigots. Bigots want to deny the rights and livelihood of people different from them. They want them to cease existing, either by going underground or by murdering them. There is no "let's meet in the middle" with that. To suggest there can be is ignorance" RPGNet

The "handful" has the ear of WotC and most of the RPG publishers, and as we've seen the RPG "glitterati" of writers and designers are often among the crackpots or eagerly agreeing with them.

Greg Stolze already did that.
The more clichéd my group plays their characters, the better. I don't want Deep Drama™ and Real Acting™ in the precious few hours away from my family and job. I want cheap thrills, constant action, involved-but-not-super-complex plots, and cheesy but lovable characters.
