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.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind.

This is a problem of courage.  Weak modern males lack it, and females cue off their cowardly behavior.  One consequence of this is that when someone tells lies that should be immediately denied, such as that diversity is a strength or that males can become females by crossdressing and mutilating their genitals, they get away with it.  They should be slapped down immediately, excised from society if necessary, but it's just so much easier for a coward to walk away and do nothing when it's someone else getting the business end of muh wacism.  When the leftist filth get around to targeting that particular coward for compliance, he can expect no aid from anyone else and buckle immediately.

The only cure for cultural tyranny, be it leftist punk thuggery or puritan redneck thuggery is through strong firm opposition.

I suppose this is technically true, but it's not terribly useful to worry about redneck thuggery when it is the left-commies who control the House of Representatives, academia, many judicial circuits, and most of the media outlets, 'news' or entertainment.  What do redneck thugs control?  Not even food production, most of that is from mainline cuckservatives.

The Commie Left are the greater threat right now, but let us not forget that the rednecks and the theocratic conservatives are also the enemy as well, albeit they are enemies of a different faction. Christian fundamentalists are the OG SJW's. Don't underestimate them.

If the Commie Left goes down in a way that causes the theocons to be emboldened by it, they will try to fill the power vacuum.

Christian fundamentalists are only in the rise in the sense that they are the only group with sustainable birthrates in the United States. Your projecting strength for a 'Enemy' thats been losing cultural ground for the past 500 or so years.
Playing them up as a threat is like playing up the Mongols as a threat.

While there is no limits for humans to take an idea too far, SJWs are the OG SJWs because their principles are based on the Idea of a heaven on earth, which I used to think made them less dangerous then religeous extremists but now I realise it makes them more dangerous as a collective.

Everybody is a conservative eventually because reality has a way fo slipping away from everything you believe in and find sacred eventually.

True, I'll admit I have been shifting rightward for the past five years or so. I used to be a Bernie Sanders supporter in 2016, thinking he was going to be FDR 2.0 instead of the grifter he is in real life.

Maybe I should've rephrased my statement better.

Christian Fundamentalists are the OG moral guardians in this country. SJW's are just the new moral guardians.

I don't know how much of your persona about morality is real, but stick with me while I explain:

There is always a moral framework to society. For bad or good its a binding agent. In individualist societies the collective moral focus is on individual responsibility. In collectivist societies its about being responsible to others. This isn't bad and allows a large group of people to generally co-exist. Its taught to children to make it smoother. Yes it also results in outcasts and social clashing, but thats the nature of reality, the alternative is general chaos and panamonium. In modern times its easier then ever to find a place where you belong because travel is widespready but problems still occur.

Ignoring the virutues of the Christian Morality system (Not a christian myself but I do like studying philosophy), it was still better for an amoralist such as yourself then the SJW morality system.
Even assuming such a morality is stifling, corrupt, and founded in dogmatic belief in nonsense, it was a more consistent dogma, and more consistent nonsense. It was the difference between a amoral and cruel emperor and the Bolshevics that cared so much they starved millions to death through their own incompitence.

Quote
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.
    -- C. S. Lewis


I can see coming from such logic why you could see amorality as superior to a collective enforced morality as its susceptible to the above issue, and it could be argued that christianity is also susceptible to the above accusation, a morality system will reform. Morality system vacumes last for 30 years tops, and reforn for much much longer.

Saw this coming.  Perfectly diverse Vikings https://marketplace.roll20.net/browse/set/5513/historical-viking-village-infantry-and-npc-tokens Stunning & Brave

Quote
Historically correct Norse villagers (no pointy horn Vikings in this set!) and warriors. Includes a mixture of men and women and some characters who register as a bit more gender neutral, and color schemes for Scandinavian heritage, as well as red hair and brown skinned options for all poses. As Vikings were known to have contact with Native Canadians at the very least, and these poses could be used for any medieval fantasy village setting I elected to include a range of realistic skin tones, as well as the expected Nordic color schemes.

Geesus. These SJW's are always so fucking desperate to have every group, every environment, to somehow not be *White*.

It's so stupid. Historically, there were whole swaths of Africa and Asia that were entirely monoculture and monoracial. Of course, no part of Europe, ever, was all white. *Rolls Eyes* I fucking hate all of these drooling morons that engage in historical revisionism. It's such bullshit.

We had to have a diverse array of skin tones in these Vikings, but they went out of their way to make sure no pointy horns were on their heads... What kind of Viking games are they playing?

Two words: "mutual consent".

No, I don't want to know the details, either.

*Laughing* Exactly, my friend! No, no, we can't have pointy, horned helmets--but dark brown-skinned Vikings are just fine!

You know, most of Northern and Western Europe was so fucking pale white in colour, and unaccustomed to seeing anyone that looked darker than themselves--that for many years, centuries even, the French were considered to be "exotic" looking and "alluring" primarily because they were considered to be darkly coloured.

And yes, we know the French are white. *Laughing*Of course, the Greeks too, were considered dark and exotic. It always struck me as funny because yes, the Greeks are olive coloured and a bit darker of course...but the French are exotic and dark? *laughing*

But there must have been dark skinned Indians or Black Africans in the Viking north, right?:D

That whole historical revisionism just drives me fucking crazy. These drooling fucking Liberals are supposed to be "educated"--and yet, they are so woefully uneducated that they cannot see that them wanting to put whatever rainbow coloured people all over white fucking Europe doesn't have a damned thing to do with history--and everything to do with ideology and politics. It is writing history to suit their ideology and politics, rather than allowing the truth to be embraced.

I need to light up my pipe!:D And get some fresh coffee going!

If you treated Crichton's Eaters of the Dead as backstory, you COULD have interactions between Northmen and Arabs.

The image of the Northman as an idiot pillager keeps having to get revised as new info turns up.
