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.

When you have to explain to a purple haired pervert that a Kilrathi warrior who came to kill stuff is an ok character concept, but a catgirl prostitute is a bridge too far.

There is no Uwu here, only owie-ouchie-olly-oxen-free, with cheeto dust.

When a group of young girls playing "Call of Cthulhu" (and only Call of Cthulhu) is cool - and you do not understand how it come to be (cue "The Calyx").
For every idiot who denounces Ayn Rand as "intellectualism" there is an excellent DM who creates a "Bioshock" adventure.

You know you're old if you remember Aleena as hot.
You know you're old if you hate Bargle.
You know you're old if you insist on carrying a 10' pole.
You know you're old if you remember coloring in your dice with a crayon.
What're you talking about? Aleena was ALWAYS hot. Did they fuck up her artwork too?
She’s probably a dude now. And married to a construct.

You know you're getting old when...

You need more than one bathroom break in a 3 hour session.
Even in previous decades, that was highly dependent upon the beer intake at the table.

I've unironically seen a catgirl prostitute done reasonably well. By which I mean "It wasn't disruptive".

Granted that wasn't a D&D campaign but more of an anime inspired fighting game (which was freaking awesome) but I have seen it done alright.

Two beers, two fucking beers, normal size too, not pints. I know what I'm talking about.

OOOOHHH, Damn! Yeah, that sounds good! I would love to have some of that! VICTORIA. Here in the states I have had a Victoria beer that is gold. Good stuff for sure! Is that the same Victoria brand? My usual favourites have been Victoria, Dos Equis Amber, and Pacifico.

I haven't seen a Victoria Tamarindo though!

Many people are very interested in these mythical 'two beers'. Law enforcement, for example:

Belgium has plenty of beers, where 2 will put you 'mildly' over the limit.
I'll try to photograph some in front of my dice bag tomorrow, to keep this gaming related  ;D

But then Belgium beers are sold usually in smaller bottles than your usual beers, so higher power is balances by lower amount.

My guess would be that yes it's the same brand.

Here we have it normal, with tamarindo, with tomato & lemon juice (our lemon, so your lime), and one with tomato, lemon juice + sauces, kinda spicy.
