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.

9) THAC0 cannot stand children and think's they're like roaches.
...
Speaking of clowns, at least WoTC hasn't adopted Kinko the kid loving clown as their mascot... yet.

Plubicly, because the judges for MtG was infested with Kinko imitators... If you know what I mean.

Given WotC's public actions towards those who pointed out all the Kinko imitators at MtG events.

I'm rather glad that THACO the Clown/Traditional Gamers, are shown to not be overly fond of children...

WotC sure didn't like those pointing the Kinko imitators, they made sure to let us all know by banning them from all and any official events and lying about them.

It seems that WotC doth protest too much...



Edited for clarity of target.

Wasn't that the Quartering who also got banned from gencon for being punched.

??? what !???

I was referring to WotCs treatment of the guy who pointed out the kinko imitators inMtG tournaments dude.

I thought that was evident from my bolding of text... I will edit to make that crystal clear!

Easy. Its there in a pathetic, but sadly effective, attempt at outrage marketing.
Put in some little dig at older players bound to get some to scream. And rake in the free advertising.

Pundit is one of WOTCs biggest advertisers for them.

  Sad but likely true. It's probably why they demonize him and push his buttons so much--"this jerk hates our stuff!" has become a real method of advertising in the current climate.

Which is... odd. You'd think, what with D&D becoming more mainstream, they'd be able to ride on that and use those laurels. Why antagonize Pundit (and other old-school grognards) in such a clumsy high-school mean girl way?

That was the conclusion I came to as well.

And it's so weird to watch. But I guess it makes sense, if you're a perpetually offended leftard.

*Laughing* So true, Oggsmash!! A fucking high school girl! So many of the people now at WOTC seem to be petty, shrill teenagers with mean-spirited attitudes.

Well I was pretty much on the fence in buying the new edition. Yet between edition fatigue, Wotc previews of it doing absolutely nothing to get my interest and now their true feelings about older gamers. Fuck them and their new edition. I have four different editions of D&D I really don’t need another.

I would like to know how the fuck can any Grognard "gatekeep" any "kid" from playing 5e?

Keeping kids from playing 5e is easy. All you need to do is not run D&D for your children or their friends. Break the chain. Make sure your kids don't have any nostalgic memories of Dungeons & Dragons that can be exploited by woke corporations.

OR I can run 5e for my kid because I like 5e and like my kid and her friends enjoying it and don't have a political agenda for my role playing games.

People on this message board seem to care a lot more about politics than gaming it seems these days, and have also lost their sense of humor in taking their politics and gaming oh so seriously.

When Mistwelk side does it we can’t comment because his side is above reproach on any and all levels.

We do the same and we get accused of “being too serious and lacking a sense of humour”.  I wonder if Wotc had made fun of someone in a wheelchair or made amtje worst gay stereotyped character in the same adventure if you and yours would be so forgiving.

Whatever we get it rules for me but not for thee.

I am enjoying reading the newest WOTC 5e adventure, Wild Beyond the Witchlight, in preparation to run it for my 10 year old daughter and her friends. It's a particularly kid-friendly adventure which is fanciful and can be completed with no combat if the group prefers that route.

Have you run the adventure yet, Mistwell? If so, how did it go?

What are the non-combat challenges like? Are they more mystery, exploration, riddles, or other?

I have him blocked, so I had to go back and look at his smarmy little comment.

It should be noted that despite his 'oh we should just play the games' line of apathy, the wokeists certainly aren't interested in playing the games (or making the movies, or etc, etc). They're out to reshape them in their preferred image.
