The creator of the Chronic Fatigue Barbarian, is simply making fun of D&D.

Perhaps covertly, but they are still doing so.

One certainly hopes so because it's downright sad if it is meant either as an actual cynical social/cultural hack that will change the world and contribute to bringing about a new post-stimuli simulacrum that will bind up ever mind and serve as a new baseline for normality or was the earnest product of a deranged tortured homunculus mind that can only be related to most other minds via seeing it as a parody, grotesque, and/or travesty.

If you intimidate the editor you can sell them crap. If you intimidate the editor's boss because they might be called a bigot if they push the editor to not buy crap then you can't be fired unless maybe you attempt homicide or steal money and leave a trail. That seems to be the play. You get your weirdos in the chain as a concession as part of a shakedown, you get them immunity from performance metrics and then they will use the company to produce propaganda drek and attack the customers. That's how it worked at Marvel and DC anyway.

OK, I haven't seen the video, but as far as I can see, this is a free writeup that someone put on their Google Drive -- and you're calling that a "real" class? That's not even third party published - and commercial published works have classes ranging from the clown to the pest controller to the ghetto fighter and mouseburglar.

But I guess the point is to get all outraged that such a thing could appear anywhere.

This is absurd, cringey and hurts my soul.  I wonder what the typical player confined to a wheelchair would like to play - do they want to see themselves expressed in the world as they are or do they want to play someone that doesn't share their burden?  If the latter I'd find a way to let them play themselves at the table without injecting a crude anachronism into the world.  I'd like to think in a world soaking in magic there are better options than a wheelchair.  Wizard with Tenser's Disc so well-practiced that it's a cantrip for them? Go for it.  And yup I'd anti-magic zone their behind at some point and put them in a situation where they had to move fast, forcing them to improvise some solution.  As Pundit said, dealing with your disadvantage is cool and interesting.  Pretending it doesn't exist when it plainly does, is not.

Good video, although I can't shake the suspicion there is some Uruguayan equivalent of April Fools' Day going on...

It nailed the central idea of the SJWs - to achieve equality of outcomes through collective, socially-enforced effort.

Possibly getting well beyond elfgames is the question of motive. I'm sure plenty of rank and file SJWs genuinely want to try and make things better for people who seem to have had a rough deal one way or another.

What people who think like this rarely seem to realise until it's too late is that some actual individuals need to decide what form the socially-enforced effort should take and do the enforcing. And human nature is such that those people inevitably end up using their power to entrench themselves in power (or they get pushed aside by others who will). Refer to every single leftist revolution ever.

The truly scary thing about the SJWs to me is that they are out to destroy the ideas we could use to call out the abuses when they happen. Even Stalin and Hitler didn't manage that. They pretended the bad stuff wasn't happening, or they argued it was necessary for some higher purpose. They didn't quite manage to abolish the notion of right and wrong. The SJW says, you are not even allowed to describe what I am doing as bad because your opinion, and in a way your whole existence, is illegitimate because of your privilege. And that, as they say, is some next-level shit.

I'm sure the bulk of SJWs are just well-intentioned and misguided. But without going full-on tinfoil hat, I am sure there are plenty of SJWs who know exactly what they are doing and what they could get out of it.

Given that this "someone" got their original wheelchair added to official D&D, what makes you think they won't do the same with the update, including the Chronic Fatigue Barbarian? Especially since if they don't now, the SJWs will accuse the WoTC of bigotry?

If Thompson got her original combat wheelchair added to official D&D, then yes, I would be wrong. Can you give a link or reference that the original combat wheelchair was added to official D&D?

I don't know how many might remember, but back in the day TSR lawyers would go after anyone who put up fan made material in the bulletin board/early net days. It really stifled a lot of creativity. So anyone being able to post their content without having lawyers sicced on you is a good thing.

But the thing is, back then we mocked stupid stuff. The difference now is if you mock stupid stuff to you, you're judged and executed by the sjw's. Almost as worse are those who say, eh what's the big deal? Even more worrisome is here is WotC, the makers of one of the most popular iterations of the game, putting wheelchairs in everything. It's like WotC knows that they will be attacked or they are already infiltrated by the sjw's.

So yeah, I can tell any player that you can't play a wheelchair bound player, you can't play a centaur, you can't play an kenku, etc in my game. The difference I see now is the entitlement a seeming (notice I said seeming) majority of players have. Every time I post a type of game I want to gm I get no responses or a how come you're limiting stuff questions.

It's the main reason I run DCC now. Because the implied setting and with the core rulebook classes only sets the tone of my games.
