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.

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.

I said that's how you get statists/authoritarians/nazis in power.

It's also how anybody ever gets to power.

I dont get it - by my calculation 100% of Queens have been female and 100% of Kings have been male.

Shut up! You're speaking logic, trying to defeat FEELINGS! How dare you attack the righteous reds of the 21st century! HOW DARE YOU???
On a side note, most people don't understand if one is being facetious on the internet. Strange that without the 'REEEEEEE-' it almost makes me sound serious!
On the other side of note, I suppose if people want to play something and NEED official rules for it, they can always create an ezine. Then again, how can you build whilst in the middle of destroying other's fun? Meh. I actually can't wait to see this become marginalized again, if it can ever be.  :(

I am assuming this is serious because I don't see anything to to indicate otherwise.  There are many Dukes, Counts, Barons and Knights listed in the various Pendragon supplements the vast majority based on the source material.  The woke Marxist scum want a political commissar to go through these and apply  fucking quotas similar to the quotas we have seen from the  Oscars and the BFI.

Of course the same Neo-Marxist scum are ok with 100% female.

Sure you can. I'm not trying to stop you.

I just think that the art is deliberately ugly. And California is full of ugly drag queens.

Yup. 60% of the pleasure is pissing people off. So learn to stop reacting too it.

These sorts of projects get most of their support in being 'Oppositional' they don't stand for something. Unless a dedicated hatedom develops, these things never have enough fans to get them anywhere.

Ran across this video which shows how Facebook manipulates and censors conservatives from the viewpoint of a former employee.

Humans like to be enslaved.

That sounds harsh, but grab a world history book and do a page count for the "era of democracy and freedom" vs. the "eras of tyranny". Humans prefer a pyramid shaped governing model. We're just living through a historic anomaly.

It never ends there and it never will, which is why most gun owners nowadays have no interest in compromise or 'reasonable' gun laws. We've seen how it goes, particularly in England; the 'slippery slope' isn't a fallacy if you can prove it occurs.

Also Australia, New Zealand from what I have read.

Some Roll20 bollocks

Quote
3. Add artwork and games by Black creators to the Roll20 Marketplace. We’re still in the outreach phase of this commitment, but we have some progress we’d like to share. First, we’ve budgeted a dedicated number of work hours from our production team to make this commitment a reality. That means that our production team has set-aside hours devoted to adding artwork and games by Black creators to the Roll20 Marketplace. This is part of making good on our promise to take on the costs of putting work from Black creators on to the Marketplace to reduce the barrier to entry. Second, we’ve set an internal goal to have at least four games helmed by Black creators signed to appear on the marketplace by the end of 2020. At Roll20Con, we announced Companions’ Tale and Esper Genesis. Expect to see the first of these projects available on the Marketplace later this year.

4. Create change internally. We’re revamping our internal Anti-Oppression and Anti-Racist employee education with the help of the McKensie Mack Group. We also mentioned in the post from June that we’d be adding a social justice expert to the Roll20 advisory board. We’re happy to announce we’re in the final stages of the interview process for this position.

So please restate this logic?

Why should you have the ability to keep me from owning a firearm, when it's my right to defend myself?

What does it matter if my weapon is automatic or semi-automatic? What difference does it make if it's "suppressed" or not? I am not going around breaking laws with it.

And if you can enforce this ability to keep me from practicing my rights, logically, you can enforce this ability to keep me from practicing any of my other rights.

Which is more important - your ability to deny me my rights, or my ability to engage in my rights?

Exactly this. ANY LIMIT ON ARMS OF ANY TYPE is in direct violation of the Constitution. Just because they have managed to get some laws passed doesn't make them right. This is a direct consequence of activist judges dereliction of duty in applying the law as written, not to make laws because of their ideology. I should, if I can afford it, be able to buy any weapon. Of course I will have to answer for it if I make illegal use of it, but otherwise it is no one's business, particularly our governments. As tenbones points out quite succinctly, any abridgement of our endowed rights allows abridgement of any of our rights. It's exactly why the framers held the right to bear arms only second to freedom of speech.
