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 remember that!

Yeah the whole new Puritanism of the Left is an internet fueled turbo-charged Heroin ball for people chronically addicted to their self-loathing. This emergent SJW thought-construct rewards them for their self-hate. The whole ideology is a destructive orgy on the backs of all the cultural edifices "normal" people enjoy, and the constituent fanbases of these artifacts are the lube.

Yep, and it's a mind virus being spread in our schools, entertainment, etc.

A long time ago I told Pundit that D&D dying (it never will), or becoming less of a cultural touching stone was a good thing. Even if Hasbro decided to kill it and only sell life style merchandize, the hobby won't die, the OGL guarantees that.

I would posit that the rethorical destruction of WotC, Baizuo, Shitty Hat and whoever publishes Vampire is a net possitive for the hobby, there's already other games out there, we can publish more if we want/need/there's demand.

So the big guns becomming nothing is a good thing for the hobby since, like a wildfire, it clears way for the new.

I thought the idea was that it'd make all the enemy males want to "hit that" rather than hit that... plus everyone knows it comes with an army of White Knights just waiting to jump into the path of any attacks.

I'm confused at this point. Will have to watch this and see.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m3hhzW63H3k

So is the youtube video guy.

At 6:00 in
"I think D&D would have gone down a decidedly different path had Hasbro not purchased Wizards of the Coast..."

Delusional.

WOTC was already left wing, and they hired two proto-woke gamers; Jonathan tweet and Monte Cook to design 3e.

Critical Theory based "inclusive" politics were actively being injected in 3e D&D before "going woke" really took off.

This can be proven from articles and post where Tweet and Cook talk about the creation of 3e.



Seeing this brings me a lot of joy. TSR coming back makes me very happy. I wish them nothing but good fortune in the products they create.

What comes of this has me very interested.

Time to prepare for disappointment kids.

Nu-TSR is a woke stillborn abortion.



TSR Games is Back
The studio behind the original Dungeons & Dragons has returned to Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, under the guidance of Gary Gygax Jr. with the help of Wonderfilled, Inc.

TSR Games is BackLake Geneva, WI, June 15, 2021 --(PR.com)-- Tactical Studies Rules (TSR) was founded in 1973 by E. Gary Gygax and Don Kaye. Originally formed in 2020, TSR Games is officially back and under the leadership of E. Gary Gygax Jr.

“I am thrilled to be part of this next generation of gaming and hope that you all find it cut the same cloth as all my old TSR experiences as we forge a new TSR Games,” said Gygax, continuing, “Thanks to the vision of our CEO Justin LaNasa, and the help of Wonderfilled, we’re bringing TSR back home to Lake Geneva. It really means so much to me.”

TSR was behind the original Dungeons & Dragons first released in 1974, now a worldwide phenomenon owned by Hasbro on its fifth and most popular edition yet. The team includes Justin LaNasa (CEO), Ernest G. Gygax Jr (EVP), Jeff R. Leason (COO, and Stephen E. Dinehart (CCO). LaNasa is a visionary and entrepreneur that has set out to reunite brands like TSR with the original talent behind them.

“It’s with great pride that we’ve managed to secure the TSR brand, born here originally in 1973 and brought back to the people who created this new form of game that changed the world,” said LaNasa.

In addition to the classic lines of products at TSR Museum and Dungeon Hobby Shop, TSR Games is working to bring a new generation of role-playing games and more to players worldwide. “Now more than ever, the world needs TSR,” said game designer Jeff R. Leason. “We’re happy to be bringing it back for experienced and new players alike.”

Sounds good right!

It'll be great baby! TSR is back motherfuckers!

Right!?

Right?

Some tasty quotes starting 3:30 in...

"Middle class white boy."
"Remove from western mythos."
"Not for them"
"...new generation of players."


11:50 in...
"I don't believe in race."

13:30 in...
"I don't want to create a fantasy where races fight against each other."

15:00 in...
Quoting Larry Elmore "Trying to sneak in people of color into D&D early on... Just so white..."


The rot is already in the door kids.

It is only a matter of time; The woke convergence of Nu-TSR is inevitable.

You have all been warned.

Pandering much? Lorty! So much speech about not wanting to talk about race and gender, but let's steer away from those white boy ways! Dude is just trying to suck in as many customers from New Woke City as he can as far as I can tell from this podcast. I was sort of interested in taking a look at this game but not anymore...
Thanks,

Well, since female warriors were a historical rarity (especially armored ones), desperate modern historical revisionism notwithstanding, the chainmail bikini wouldn't have been an issue to begin with.  For most of human history, women have been the spoils, not the combatants.  So if we're going to be realistic...

WOTC was already in the hands of the 90s iteration of this idiocy and is why it ended up going so downhill it was bought out by Hasbro. The 2010 wave of moral guardians under the new totle of Social Justice just stepped up the stupid to new levels.

With WOTC failure is the only option.

Were any of the game devs on this podcast and bought into this garbage? I don't have the patience to listen to woke nonsense on a podcast without putting my fist through a PC monitor.

I hate to say this, hah, but it's telling that a few years ago this would have been exciting to even ponder "TSR" (fill in whatever that means to you) is coming back.

The moment I saw the thread and went to their website, my first reaction was to laugh. None of it surprises me. We're through the looking glass. I just assume anything presented is tainted now. The question is "to what degree"? YMMV.

The fur loincloth offers a comparable lack of protection for our barbarian heroes.

... and yet no one really complains about that.

It's almost like the people that do the complaining about these things really have to get cyclopian in their squinting to find something to complain about.

Edit: As an aside, I loved how Beasts and Barbarians created an Edge - Loincloth Hero, to allow people to play that (works as a Chainmail Bikini too).

Larry Elmore, the man who very well may have the record for the most fantasy breasts ever put on canvas, is peddling woke stuff? I guess I'm not surprised. Creative types are very sensitive to the cultural zeitgeist.
