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.

LOL at insurrection.  I guess all that matters is who's windows get broken to go from a peaceful protest to insurrection.

Ya too strong.  They didn’t fire any weapons as far as I know. Mob of imbeciles now facing federal charges is more like it.  The only thing I’m wondering is if Trump will pardon any of them or leave them under the bus.

Pen and Paper Roleplaying Games (RPGs) Discussion / Re: Support Your FLGS
« on: January 15, 2021, 01:35:48 am »
I order from a local FLGS because they give me a 20% discount on anything not in stock.  They are the only respectful store in town as far as I’m concerned so I support them.  We have game store market saturation where I live.  Some other stores have employee so douchee I don’t buy shit from them.

Anyone else experience this?  Seems the game store employee twat ratio is higher than other businesses.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum / Re: What's to be done about homelessness?
« on: January 15, 2021, 01:26:59 am »
Lack of affordable housing due to high competition and low availability is the major factor for homelessness where I live.  High rent to income ratios for people with no savings get people in trouble quick.  And no not just bums.  Regular people with jobs are living out of their car.  Some of them never even lost their job.  The solution is the incentivize development of apartments buildings to combat the shortage but there is a lot of pushback from single family home owners. 

Homelessness is really exploding in my area.   There are more camps than I’ve ever seen.

What we should do?  Break them up as monopolies


What we will do?  Cry and whine while they gain more power.

Coriolis-   I picked this up just because it’s from Free League.  It’s pretty low on my to read list so I’m curious if anyone here knows about it.  I’ve flipped through it and the art is nice.
I don't like the MY0 rules, but I love the Coriolis setting. Unfortunately, the book is really light on gear and even talents, so it feels somewhat incomplete. However, if I were to run it, I'd probably use a generic system anyway (but more gear to get a feel for the tech levels would be nice).

What is it you don’t like about the Year Zero Engine?
In Coriolis, specifically (because that's the only one I own), it is the limited range of options. Characters can start to feel very similar to one another from the start (which isn't too unusual) and stay that way much longer than I like (this is the bigger problem). I'm also not too keen on the target number of 6 (on a d6) and needing to use the reroll mechanic to accomplish much of anything reliably. Overall though, it might be less of what I don't like about it and more that there's nothing in it that I specifically like (mechanically; again, the setting and art are pretty awesome).

In MY0 when you push a roll and fail you risk damage to one of your stats but failing is also the main way you gain points for more mutations.  I’ll have to see how that mechanic works in the other games but at least with MY0 it’s great.

Trump doesn’t give a crap about getting impeached.  Look at his video from today (yesterday?).  He’s more worried about his Twitter ban.

I doubt it will go beyond a symbolic gesture. The Senate will slap it down.

I think that’s the point.  It’s a political strategy.  They want to force Republicans to vote innocent.

Just acquired.  Another two from Free League. 

Forbidden Lands-   The GM I’m playing with is interested in running this after our current campaign.  Don’t know a lot about it yet.

Edit.  How do I make the pictures right side up?

I doubt a Mexican president would survive a war with the cartels. The cartels appear to own Mexico the same way China owns America now. The time to crush the cartels, like the time to crush the communist bitches in America, has sadly passed...or is now in the hands of the people.

Sadly you are correct.  Being of Mexican descent is the reason I don’t support gun control of any kind except background checks.  Mexico is the prefect example of why it doesn’t work to stop violence.  When good people arm themselves, I call that “order”.  There are several movements where locals have started to arm themselves.  The government has been cracking down.  Eventually I hope those movements gain enough steam to be sustained.

You are so deeply out of touch these days:




By the way, even among those who do not trust the election results, most still do not support what happened with the raid on the Capital. 35 percent of Americans don’t trust the election results. But only 8% support what happened at the Capital.

Yes, battle lines were drawn, and you chose the losing side. Like not even a question anymore, you're the loser in the room on this topic if you could only get 8% of America to side with your view. You can usually get more than 8% of America to side with ANY view. Make up any claim and poll on it and you can usually squeeze out more than 8% support on even the craziest position. That's how badly you lost this one.
There's that, and there's this:

https://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/trump_administration/trump_approval_index_history

Trump's approval rating went up the day after the mostly peaceful acts of Nazi terrorist patriotism in the Capitol. Just a point, but it still went up, and his approval rating is as high as it's ever been.

I'm not sure polls mean anything anymore.

Polls have proven to be bs but Trump has a really effective cult of personality going.  All revolutionary movements have a supreme leader.  I personally think his enemies will destroy him in the end and the movement will fizzle out.  I don’t think another person could muster the charisma to keep it going as strongly.

Oh not this shit again.  Release your latest book.  After that release another one. Otherwise nobody cares about your drama.  There are no celebrities in this hobby bitch.

AMLO is in the pocket of the cartels, fuck that puto. 

“No a la guerra, si a la paz, nada de declarar la guerra, eso no es solución, eso ya sabemos lo que ocasiona, siempre se va a proteger a la gente, sin masacres, con inteligencia más que con fuerza y no se va a caer en ninguna provocación”

Google translate it if you’re interested.  This was after a large massacre of civilians.  Some real bitch made words.

Those words sound totally innocuous--even laudable (at least to some)--without some clear context of what went down and what else he was saying when he said them.

PS: Jesus Christ! You lazy fuck: "No to war, yes to peace. Nothing about declaring war, that is not a solution, we already know what that causes. People will always be protected, without massacres, with intelligence more than with strength and (we) won't fall into any provocation."

(or something to that effect, the guy apparently has this passive way of phrasing things, like instead of saying "We will protect people", which can be said in Spanish "nosotros vamos a proteger a la genete", he phrases it more like "People will be protected", like it will happen on its own. The entire quote is written in that tone.)

I’m a Mexican American.  I know what those words mean. The cartels have operated with impunity.  Tell my family in Juarez those words are laudable.  I hoped the cartels would resolve their disputes and things would chill out but their constant attacks on civilians shows Mexico needs a president who WILL declare war.  The cartels need to be crushed.
