To go along with Coyote and Crow you can now back.....

I like rpgs.....I really do....and I know that rpgs have been made that I know I'll never play and like. But I wonder with the "success" of coyote and crow if we'll see a rash of these. This is supposedly another all PoC created tabletop rpg. And unlike coyote and crow, this setting isn't the "new world" it's just a new world. But I'll be interested to see if there were indigenous peoples on this new world they found and how they were dealt with.

"...But I wonder with the "success" of coyote and crow if we'll see a rash of these..." As the Emperor said once, "It is unavoidable."

Frankly though, the 'all POC created' stinks of a falsehood because looking at that artwork, unless you include Asian folks, which the typical woke types don't unless it's convenient, there's no way this is all POC created.

Plus, if you're talking about a place like this, you can't have conflict unless it's manufactured or the settlements, like in Mass Effect, cover less than a percent of a percent of the planet in question.

How convienient that medieval Mali people were kidnapped to alien planet inhabited by ... hyeana folk, and not for instance octopus-folk, cucumber-tiger-crow folk or intelligent slime minerals.

The symbol for the afro-futurist bio-priests is a caduceus?

I mean I cannot be sure but as they are descendants of Mali Empire which was islamic state holding relatively regular contacts with Mediterrean world... it's not impossible.
Depends whether Caduceus was used for instance by North African Arab-Berber muslims.

Pity it's not a game about the actual Mali empire.  That would have been interesting.

You could add a little magic that's appropriate to what people believed at the time and you have "Mythic Mali".

This isnt a new idea. Its just dolled up in new buzzwords and new era of greed and outrage marketing. We've seen virtue signal games for 5+ years now. So this is nothing new really either. Just more of the same. And was recently shopping and passed a big bin full of some new drink called BuzzBallz with on the side of the bin read "Woman Owned". Expect to see more of that too in product.

honestly surprised afrofuturist game didn't hit first, movement has the larger following

How convienient that medieval Mali people were kidnapped to alien planet inhabited by ... hyeana folk, and not for instance octopus-folk, cucumber-tiger-crow folk or intelligent slime minerals.

coyote and crow people were bitching about how terrible it is that the game was set on earth and didn't give a lick of thought to yt. game creates setting where yt can't exist bc it's a different planet, complaint is now about convenient furries instead of legit-alien aliens. nice

   I say knock yourselves out (regarding the ethnocentric game makers).  I am sure white people will buy it to "show support" and then be fucking terrified to play it because they feel they are culturally appropriating, OR as MANY of these LEFTY folk do, dress up in black face and do their best to imitate the scary black people they went to high school with and basically pull a Trudeau in their own little weird groups.   

   I just laugh, because down the road they have to worry about a pal having taken a picture of a game session (and even just all being white and playing the game they might get into trouble the way the future looks) and being canceled for cultural appropriating, or doing "mental blackface" or some other such shit.
