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.

If it weren't for the fact this is using the shitty Powered By The Apocalypse rules, I'd get a group together and run an explicitly fascist one-shot of this game where the titular thirsty sword lesbians are anti-intersectional fascist lesbians fighting the forces of intersectionality and destroying the marginalized scum

Queer is a homophobic slur, by the way.

I've been dealing with real-life family issues and helping with remodeling and repairing the house for the past few weeks

Might do a one-shot based on World of Darkness

To follow up the Asian Gawain we now have a black King Arthur.

Meh, I think true maturity is realizing that Lucius Tiberius and Mordred were the real good guys of the Arthurian Legend. But that's just me.

Welcome aboard! I hope you enjoy your stay

It's a shame is a madhouse and a cesspit these days

Alternate History is a lot like Fan-Fiction - there's probably some that you'd like, but lots of it that just looks like trash to you.  The hard part is finding an alternate history that is compelling and broadly appealing. 

In many cases, you can avoid all of those issues by repackaging the alternate history in a totally new setting (like Old West parallels/post Civil War with Firefly). 

In many cases, players don't want to be constrained by the historical beliefs/prejudices that are appropriate in that setting.  As you make more and more changes to the history to accommodate player tastes, you have less and less that makes a historical setting useful.

Firefly sucks and Joss Whedon is an untalented hack but you kind of have a point

I'm still here and going to play this game. Just got distracted by real life and the site upgrades

It's a bit weird because they think white hetro-sexual males are orcs but they think orcs are black people.

Self-loathing is a terrible terrible thing. And that Projection Talent they have... truly scary.

The extreme left projects harder than an IMAX theater during an all-night billing

"I got your back on this one!" replies Amara as she stands beside Ghandus and has her sword drawn to fight anyone who comes within range and defend the gangway to the ship.

Amara engages her enemies in melee combat

My vote is to let the GM handle dice rolls for now but I'm also down for using an online dice roller.

Punks used to wear swastikas to piss of the man while happily beating the shit out of actual Nazis.

Not sure if the Punk Scene got infiltrated by the wokestains.

They definitely became turbo-woke. If anything, they were probably the first subculture or counterculture to become completely overtaken by extreme leftism.

Me thinks you don't know what secular humanism means and conflate the "atheists" that converted to the woke cult with it and atheism. Just like you don't know what punk is...

I do know what punk is and have the misfortune of knowing that scene overall (at least as it existed in Virginia during the early 2010's) but I think you are right about secular humanism. A lot of woke atheists like to hide behind terms like that.

There are different types of paganism. Don't take it personally Sammy. I wasn't talking about you.

I know that there are many types and many I am vehemently against (looking at mainly the Wiccans on this one) but given your past history I was worried you were once again painting with a very broad brush.

"Neoliberalism promotes Moloch worship?"
Yes, unironically. Or it might be more accurate to say that Moloch worshipers promote neo-Liberalism. But the actual claim I made was that "the Neoliberal order has imposed the most permissive social values since the Canaanites were sacrificing their children to Moloch." so even without arguing about the wikileaks emails where Hillary Clinton "jokes" about sacrificing a chicken to Moloch, my assertion was that 21st century neo-Liberal order is the most morally and socially permissive (SJW puritanism aside) since literal pagan times.

We should go back to literal pagan times, tbh.

I'd rather have the society depicted in Caligula and the Satyricon than the society depicted in The Crucible that you want or the society depicted in Animal Farm and Brave New World that the Far Left wants.

Atheism is cancer and Yahweh worship has a lot of major issues.

Of the two, it's obvious that the atheism of the neoliberals and leftists is exponentially worse since several good things and major positive contributions to the West have come from Christianity (Catholicism moreso than Protestant or Evangelical traditions) and this cannot be ignored.

I believe that a lot of the more historic positive things brought by the Christian churches were largely thanks to pagan influence from the Greco-Roman and Germanic worlds that were refocused through a Christian lens and put in a Judeo-Christian context.

The philosophies of Plato and Aristotle were adopted by the founders of the Church as time went on.

The influence can also be found in certain customs such as Christmas (derived from the Roman Saturnalia and the Nordic Yule) and Easter (derived from the Germanic Ostara and the Roman Floralia) and arguably Halloween (originally derived from a Catholic holiday, but with influences from both the Roman Lemuria and the Celtic Samhain)

I do not worship Moloch, I worship Jupiter and many other Gods and Goddesses.

Moloch was worshiped by the profligate Phoenicians and Carthaginians, while Yahweh was worshiped by the Israelites.

The modern descendants of the Israelites are the Jews by blood and spiritually their descendants are the Christians and the Orthodox and Conservative Jews.

Both of these faiths are founded on the Torah as the base text, although the former has the New Testament to add upon it while the latter has the Talmud to expand upon it instead.

Muslims also worship Yahweh, but do not claim descent from the Israelite tradition beyond the creation myth and the story of Abraham. They believe that the blessing of the covenant went to Ishmael while the Jews and the Christians believe it went to Isaac.

Degeneracy without faith is worthless.

That is why I find it infuriating when redneck puritan wannabes say that this is a return to pagan times because we're not lynching people for the degenerate sins of celebrating Halloween or burning gays at the stake for merely existing.

This is not a return to pagan "degeneracy" but instead vile secular humanism and brute atheistic Marxist thuggery, and this new society is exponentially worse than either the grand pagan societies of the ancient world or the Judeo-Christian societies that followed.
