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'd complain more about an advert that takes 2 minutes of my life away. I could give less than fuck about gnomes or ikea.
“Ghost Whistler” is rated PG-13 (Parents strongly cautioned). Parental death, alien battles and annihilated worlds.

There's only a few dozen people in the country and we all complained.

Also, this obviously belongs in the Gnomemurdered forum!

This was obviously a coordinated media attack by the gnomes in an attempt to do something nefarious....

Well, IKEA claims to be Swedish, but it really isn't.
It started in Sweden, but today it do not pay Swedish taxes, since it is officially owned by a company in the Nederlands.
Buuut that company don't really handle the money, and the company or bank that does, sends them to one of the tax-free countries, where the Founder of IKEA has an account or more.

(Perhaps I should not have written this comment, i'm really out of my depth here.)

I may not dislike D&D any longer, but I still dislike the Chaos-Lawful/Evil-Good alignment system, as well as the level system.
