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.
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. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Our beloved comrade leader El Presidente just said all the proffits form the Santa Lucia Airport and the Maya Train will go to the Army...

Socializing the costs and looses while privatizing the benefits for the Army so he has them in his pocket...

Now I'm really scared.

Lula, Pinochet, Allende and Vargas are sitting at a table. They're smoking weed like Burroughs and want America to be their own. Trips to sugarville are made with a modern-refrigerated ration.

Part of it has to do with resistance to tyranny, yes. People like to trot out the tired 'your AR-15 won't stop a tank or a nuke', completely forgetting how insurgencies work.

Also, if you've gotten to the point where the government is rolling tanks on you, or launching tactical nukes at you (Imagine nuking Portland to put down Antifa. It's a crazy idea.) you're way past the point of polite disagreement with your government anyway.
The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

At least the nuking of Portland was mostly peaceful.

Way smaller than in any similar sized city that I know off.

For instance I know of only 3 gaming stores in the whole of México City (can't really speak for the rest of the country, but when I was on FB I made an RPG group, I got about 30 ppl)

And México City has 21,782,000 ppl in all of it's metropolitan area (that invades at least two states) 1,485 km²

Compare that with NYC
784 km2 8,336,817 ppl And has enough RPG stores to warrant a Top 10 best list...

Now that's funny.

Is there a lack of material in Spanish? Or do players tend to play in English? Or just no tradition of this kind of gaming there? How about board gaming and CCGs?

Lack of material in spanish is only part of the problem, mexicans take pride in not speaking any other language. Since the hobby never penetrated the marked to begin with, then the satanic panic and the fucking price of everything at the moment, there's not a tradition and never was.
