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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

Yes it’s me :)

If I want politics, I’ll watch the news.

Get that shite the heck out of my dungeon crawling lol

I put the celebration of the game, its history, and my respect for Gygax first.

I made the comment because there’s a group that seems to…expect it now. So…don’t expect it lol

Not in my games.

I know my core supporters. They aren’t tourists. They are the core of the hobby.

I’m not going to disappoint that group.

That’s how I feel about it, in all honesty.

Sounds good to me. Woke Free gaming is the way to go as far as I'm concerned.

I wish more RPG authors were brave and 'normal' like you.

Well, welcome. I hope you find good stuff here.

I know I'm going to pick up some of your pdfs. Keep up the good work.

And you're in excellent company since you've been banned from TBP.

I got thinking, In a way this is a form of gatekeeping for "us" collectively. It really weeds out the woke sjdubs.

Was there anything specific being asked for by the Woke mob that was behind your announcement that you’re going to keep that nonsense out?

I have to wonder if there is an organized effort of some kind going on, and if we’re going to see other small rpg companies get deliberately pushed to be Woke soon. It brings to mind all of the video game companies being asked for their position on abortion, and many of those companies reacting basically with ‘What the hell does our video games have to do with abortion?”

I think most look at WotC and deem that “normal,” which ob it isn’t.

But there is also a trickle down effect too to smaller and newer publishers, that is more subtle and implicit.

You need an established voice, know who you are, know the history of the hobby, and stick to your art and convictions.

In 10 years time, some authors will have locked their work into this woke time period and it won’t age well.

I’m not doing that.

Yes, exactly. That's a big problem I have with a lot of people. They're so focused on the now that they completely neglect a future.

if i placed your modules in a delorean that went 88mph and dropped in the lap of a gamer from the 80s they could basically run it as is without any context and think this is something easily useable.

That's all I want in a gaming book, to transcend editions so without much effort I can update/modify the mechanics but keep the core as is.

  It has been a fascinating look into their mindset. There is a definite strain not only of 'everything is political,' but 'only our political point of view is legitimate.' I wonder if someone said "I'm not buying anything from people who contributed to the 'Reproductive Justice' bundles," would the reaction be

  1. You're wrong, but that's your right;
  2. You're an EEEEVIL enemy of human rights and shouldn't be allowed anywhere in the hobby!

  My money's on 2. :)

Yeah, that place is a cesspool.  I saw a post on TBP where someone cheered the fact that Rpg.net is anti-free speech.  If I had a ton of money I would buy it and just shut it down.  It would do the hobby good.  But then again, most of the idiots posting there don't actually play, they just talk about games

No leave it running just change the background to the american flag. You don't want this nonsense to spread to the rest of the 'net ala Tumblr.

I agree.  TBP is just an echo chamber.  You are either with them or you are against them, and if you are against them you are banned.
