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.

Most of the WOTC and GenCon staff?

The recent attention being given to Kobold Press, reminded me that they have been quite successful of late; with Tome of Beasts, Tome of Beasts II, Creature Codex, and Creature Codex II.  All of those titles are stamped "5E" on the cover, because WOTC won't allow more specific language in reference to their RPG.

Having a Tome of Freaks, or a Freak Codex; would be a way to give the SJW collective, a piece of our mind.

If so, I bet their stat blocks weren't scripted by good OSR designers.

Would it include chromatic land-wales or rename them to butter-golems?

Those are some funny ideas, I like. (Although butter doesn't cause obesity or heart disease, so I'd never use that even though it's a great image)

Oh, ok.

What about...
Karon - A spirit in a black hood and capri pants with a stern expression permanently etched on her face. She ferries dead souls across the River Pryx to meet the manager.

You can argue that the Karen personality/smear is highly represented among SJWs, but it's not really an SJW thing in any meaningful way.
