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.

I'm not quite sure what is the issue with this.

It's creating something new, not trying to take over something that already exists.

It has to live or die on it's own merits.  So let it.

This is a fair point. I suppose it does have to do with an individuals point of view and assuming a content creators motives.

For me though, when I read the "What is this RPG" intro it says this. "Journey into a brighter, blacker future with Into the Mother Lands, a brand-new sci-fi odyssey role-playing game, developed by a fantastic team of POC RPG designers."

It's been hammered by social media that words matter. So what is this intro mean? Should I just take it as it is? Are there any read between the lines type of thing?

I can accept the statement as is, okay. What if someone said "Journey into a brighter, better future with Into the Mother Lands, a brand-new sci-fi odyssey role-playing game, developed by a fantastic team of Caucasian RPG designers."

Is one word more inflammatory than another?

I'll admit the fault could lie with me.

Racial, sexual discrimination and segregation is A-Okay when THEY do it.

For my part, as a mixed race mongrel married to another mixed race mongrel and father of a mixed race mongrel, I have exactly zero interest in playing Myfarog or the counterpart produced by POC (how I hate that term, where's the difference between it and Colored People?).

In my eyes both games are by racists, for racists.

Greetings!

Ahh, Geeky, I love it. Your straight-shooting, brutal sense of humour has e laughing every time, Hermano. I sincerely wish far more people had simple common sense about these kinds of things, and just had a reasonable perspective--a real perspective, based on real people, real food, real experiences, and real relationships. I so often get the sense that people form their social and political views based upon the jello they have been swallowing from a college class, or a book.

Pick your ass up, move to someplace with real people living there. Eat at a local restaurant. Create real relationships with actual normal people--not fucking "Community Activists" or grifting college professors, and the like.

I often think that so much of the SJW consciousness and social and political ideology is so divorced from reality. It's so detached by a margin of oceans from how normal people think, speak, and relate to each other.

Geesus. I miss me some hand-made tortillas, my friend! Some fresh-made chicken enchiladas, good beans and all the good things. And then a fine cigar to enjoy afterwards.

All of the fucking Marxist, racist troglodytes can gargle gasoline.

Semper Fidelis,

TBH there is preciously little like strictly historical RPGs overall.
You could add a little magic that's appropriate to what people believed at the time and you have "Mythic Mali".

Sounds like a Rifts Worldbook.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

Not too surprisingly, seeing a lot of people who are having second thoughts about this Kickstarter now that it's apparent that the people running it have no plan on how to actually produce a product. No system? No problem! The train wreck is just beginning.

Well....and I can also seeing loads of sjws calling it racist that this game hasn't achieved the funding of Coyote and Crow. You racists just supported the indigenous rpg about no white man instead of the afro futurist rpg about no white man.

Rifts is very authentic to real life --except Chi-Town. Chi-Town is way too nice to come from Chicago.

What if Mansa Abu Bakr II's exploratory fleet had discovered South America 200 years before Columbus?

We would have found African skeletons in Cancun.

Kickstarter is becoming quite a worthless shithole of a platform.

As they push woke products and woke creators so hard, I wonder how many sane people they are losing as a customer base?

Though I wonder how well these SJW games are going to do once the US gov't turns off the magic money spigot? I suspect much of these KS in the past year have been getting funded via grossly over-inflated unemployment checks and Corona-checks.

For my part, as a mixed race mongrel married to another mixed race mongrel and father of a mixed race mongrel, I have exactly zero interest in playing Myfarog or the counterpart produced by POC (how I hate that term, where's the difference between it and Colored People?).

Jesus Christ Geeky! Do you type all your posts while wearing your Klan sheets?

Everybody knows "People of Color" is the phrase of perfect happy goodness and "Colored People" is the phrase of total racist badness!!! 

That's why the NAACP is the National Association for the Advancement of...oops.


In my eyes both games are by racists, for racists.

It's grifter capitalism in action.

There's a near-zero chance either of these games are going to show up at a game table or ever be seen in a game store. They exist to sit on the bookshelf of a paleface incel as a virtue signal to his SJW friends.

It's the fipside of the $200 replica "Nazi dagger" that's also bought by paleface incels...sometimes, the same guys.

Oh yeah, my Mayan ancestors didn't beat around the bushes, and a small force with the primitive weapons the Muslims had 200 years before Columbus wouldn't last very long. Hell, I bet not even a large force would.

Only thing that allowed Cortez to win against the Aztecs was their savagery against their neighborgs, who choose to fight on the side of Cortez against the Aztecs. And the Spaniards had steel armor and firearms.
