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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

If photos of cards on electronic devices are sufficient proof of vaccination, then it will be fairly easy for the dishonest to fake it instead of take it.
You know, I'm pretty sure I've never seen anyone say that forging papers to escape Nazi Germany was dishonest. It's funny how that word only gets applied when someone disapproves of something.
So what other documents do you feel it's OK to forge? Is it OK to forge birth certificates or other proof of citizenship? How about faking travel credentials? Maybe bogus professional credentials are OK too?
When you sign up to a website, do you always read the terms & conditions before checking the box that says you read the terms & conditions?

And I don't see anyone in the news who says it's dishonest for immigrants to stay illegally in a country they entered illegally, which is a significantly higher level of moral turpitude than protecting your private health information.
There are some pieces of health information that are mandatory to report. Not all of it is guaranteed privacy, especially not when it involves certain communicable diseases and the vaccination against such.
We're not talking about people who are infected.
Do all of the people we are talking about have the cards to prove that?

I saw this the other day and thought it was a joke.  Nope, it's an Evil Hat game. 


But... Evil Hat is the joke.

At this point, those who haven’t taken the vaccine are probably not planning in taking it any time soon, if at all. I believe everyone is, and should be entitled to choose. What worries me is the future restrictions that can be put in place particularly related to travel and entertainment. That in one way or another would force you to take the vaccine in order to go back to normal.

My FLGS, bless them, put up a status update today requiring the non-vaccinated to wear masks, while the vaccinated do not have to. That's their perogative, but I don't plan to patronize them. I hadn't planned on any kind of "getting back to normal" until the end of the year, so it's no huge letdown.
Will they require vaccination eventually? Dunno. I don't want to take any of these vaccines until they have full FDA approval and the government lifts the restrictions of the PREP act regarding these vaccines.

I think the aftermath is far more scary than the actual pandemic. Inflation already kicking in with very little signs of actual recovery at this particular moment. Almost certain there’s another multi trillion relief on the way which would do little for the country and worsen inflation, etc. I’m legit concerned for the future. Optimism alone won’t bring the economy back.

Yep. This isn't over. It's just beginning.

How would they enforce that?  Do they ask for your papers as you enter?  "yeah I caved and got it last week guys"

Gov. Inslee has laid the ground work for requiring proof of vaccination.

You mean "I got my final dose two weeks ago," right?

RPG relevance? Perhaps the media inspiration section would be better for this.

Hmmm... you are right. Is it possible to move a thread?
Pundit can, and so can mods. Just send them a message (or "report" your own post with a request to relocate it).

That aside, what you posted about is fairly interesting stuff.

White Wolf did a Street Fighter RPG way back. One of my players local has it I believe.


I really should find my copy and use it for a WoD adventure. Vampires and werewolves and mages but using the streetfighter rules..
So Darkstalkers then?

cringe  :o

Absolutely! I mean, by the time that kind of neckcloth was adopted historically, that kind of lute had been out of fashion for a couple of centuries.
And, have you ever tried playing a lute while dancing without a guitar-style shoulder strap?
And, lute shells are pretty thin - you're really risking damaging it if you're wearing that cut-down-rapier and having the pommel knock against the instrument.

(Also, the dance looks vaguely galliarde-like, which is probably outdated before that style of rapier hilt becomes popular, and was never really taken up as a folk tradition. Or is it supposed to be Irish step dancing?)
This post has amused me. More!

Just started watching Gen: Lock animated series, and there seems to be a lot in there that could be used in EP.

EDIT: I got to the part where one pilot edits her own personality to be more confident/aggressive to improve her combat performance. It has a few drawbacks. She also had the option to eliminate some traumatic memories but opted not to do so.

It's all bullshit. From top to bottom, there is so much going wrong with the whole situation.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK
Or, one could say, the claims are all bullshit from top to bottom.

Ah, yes, the old "I have a feeling" standard of irrefutable proof...
How many court decisions would I have to cite to come to a standard you would accept?

The worst thing about CPv3 is the unreadable font.  It's literally headache inducing for me.
No, that's not the worst thing, but if you couldn't read it, you didn't get to the worst parts.

Zeus is cancelled.
But Disney/Marvel is putting him in the next Thor film. Did they not get the memo?

As for the ducks in Runequest and Drakkar. It fits the original cursed by a god origin. And they did it before the advent of Gully Dwarves and Tinker Gnomes in Dragonlance. Another product of a curse.

Though nothing really approaches the WTF x 100 of 3e Cyberpunk2020. 10 years to produce... this. And these are just samples of larger pieces throughout.


Oh fuck yeah... The BarbiePunk edition. The "art" was terrible, and what the setting became was so bad I almost did t give Red a chance (but I'm glad I did).
