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.

Only because this cult says so.

As said many a time. The problem started when we started taking insane people seriously.

SJW: "Everything is Racist Sexist, and Political!"
RPGs: "huh I guess that could be?" (Rather than saying "Thats insane!")
SJW: "You are suffering from Systemic Racism!!!"
RPGs: "Gosh! I didnt even know!" (Rather than saying "Thats insane!")

No, it's not just the 'woke', quit trying to blame eveything on them. Yes they're shrill irritating screaming ranting raving bitches (in a non gender sense) that are fanatically intolerant of anything they don't like land frequently create offense where none was meant but they are not the only ones politicising everything.

Human influenced climate change js established fact, the data is conclusive.  The realtity is following the models. So science is dismissed as a librul plot to kill capitalism or a Chinese plot to criple American industry.

Trickle down economics only benefits the rich. It hurts everyone else. 40+ years of it's practice in America have proven that conclusively. The right still calls it the 'path to prosperity and ignores the absolutely conclusive evidence as 'that liberal stuff'.

Vaccines save lives. No room for argument. So again you have the never vaxx mogement form the right. Fortunately in this case the consequences of their rejection of reality are mostly falling on them.

So quit saying the woke politicize everything.

Battlemaster, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt on this if you can explain what anthropogenic climate change, trickle down economics, and vaccines have to do with a role-playing game Kickstarter that has freaked out the woke.

jeff37923,

He said trickle down economics. That is enough to let me know he's most likely a troll. That or he's an idiot. I doubt he can give you any intelligent answer.
Running: B/X, and a Hack of my own creation. One I haven't shared because I ripped everyone off and can't remember where I "borrowed" some D&D spells.

I'm not really expecting an intelligent answer. I just want to see what he uses as a justification.

Well he can always call on that old Tiny Toons episode where they mention Trickle Down economics?  8)

Really cool to see a creator standing up like this. Particularly chiming in here on the forums as well.

I don't support Kickstarter for various reasons (their political stances, their model, late products, etc), but I will be looking for the finished product.

I think it would be cool if we had a 'woke free' logo of some kind. Similar to the OSR logo (or like Pepsi free) so like-minded people could fly the flag so-to-speak.

Be good to send a signal to everyone to say that it can be done, and it might also encourage people who are on the fence or worried about repercussions.

I would put a "woke-free" symbol on my products.  Probably not with the word "woke", but something to that effect (non-PC or something).
My "Radical High" products, which I heavily research as I write, have a "Wiki-free-dia" certification, stating that Wikipedia was not consulted as a research source, to minimize inaccuracies.

I mean need to start requiring my college students to have that designation on their papers!

Grim Jim already invented such a thing, it's called the M card. Can't find the video where he explains it tho.

Hey Greg,

I don't really post here much -- in fact this is my first post --  but I too prefer that politics and D&D remain separate.

Anway, I wanted to thank you for Barrowmaze... it got my old gaming group back together for the first time in over a decade, during the pandemic.  We played Barrowmaze Complete in 5E and it was some of the best gaming in my life!  It took us over a year playing weekly on foundry to complete the campaign.

I’m so happy to hear it! Good gaming and friendships (and killing PCs) are what it’s supposed to be all about.

Thank you for your support.

book is now out, downloaded it and there goes my Evening.  Can't wait to run through the dwarven megadungeon!

Quote

INTRODUCTION
Dwarrowdeep is an exploration-style megadungeon for the Fifth Edition of the world’s most popular roleplaying game. Players start with first level characters and continue through mid and high-level play.

Dwarrowdeep begins in the town of Hamelet. Hamelet (called Durnagald by the dwarves) is located in a region known as The Lost Kingdom of Dwarrow, situated in the northern and central aspect of the Northern Reaches.
Over the course of the adventure, players will learn that the duergar, the evil brethren of the mountain dwarves, seek revenge for an ancient blood-feud. From their deep subterranean passages, the duergar laid siege
and conquered Gundgathol - the cradle of dwarven civilization. The mountain dwarves fled Gundgathol to the human town of Hamelet. The duergar and their allies occupied the city and are obsessed with finding,
and desecrating, the Forge of Creation.


Dwarrowdeep is intended to support an extended campaign lasting months and years. The dungeon merges a traditional design within a vast, subterranean, dwarven-themed sandbox and includes opportunities
for exploration and discovery

I just purchased Barrowmaze.  I imagine it will be several years before we get to Dwarrowdeep.

Just last weekend we finished our "run-up" adventures to Dwarrowdeep.  The hope was to get the party to levels 2 or 3 before jumping into this.  Well, they lost 3 of the 8 original party members in the first couple sessions.  So they added a couple party members before their fourth session.  Two more PCs died, so they're back down to 5, but at least they're all 3rd-4th level now.  So they may add a hireling or henchman or two.  Time to dive in!

Started reading the PDF last night and had a couple of questions:

1. Why is this PDF not linked? Flipping through the book to find "Illustation 1" or "Map 2" was clunky.  Most PDF's this large have some hot linking between various topics.  Anywhere there's a BOLD reference to something in the appendix a link would help.
2. Cyclopsmen PC Stats:  I saw these Krull themed folks and want to play them. Sadly there are no 5E stats that I found for them. That's a shame and wish they were a playable race.
3. How big across the megadungeon? The map seems kind of vague for how many miles across on the surface it is. This is for all it's various parts on the topographical map that was in the included maps section.
