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. If it has trouble recognizing your password, click the 'Forgot your password?' link to reset it with a new password sent to your email address on file.
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.

So? So what does that have to do with Role Playing Games?
Why are you even bringing them up at all? Do the Orcs in your game speak with a southern accent and the medieval cart version of pickup trucks?

Yay! :D Reminds me of my WH40k orcs, back when orcs painted their carts red because "red wunz go faster". My orcs always had their artillery hooked to the vehicle and always dropped the artillery without stopping. Silly, and bad tactics, but there were rules for it and it seemed to fit the orcs personalities.

I'm actually thinking of making the orcs in my game the technologically, magically, and philosophically sophisticated race.

Huh.  Minus the red paint, we called that an Iraqi Drive-By back in the day.

LOL In this case "back in the day" is pre-Iraq War. Before Desert Storm. Before Desert Shield. So, back before "back in the day".

Remember how Tangency swallowed RPGnet?

I'm not saying it's gotten to that point but I've felt that the site as a whole has gotten less interesting since the election, probably because all the discussion is being drawn over here. Maybe that will die down. Maybe it won't.

I'm not put off by the political natterings, I even look from time to time, and I'll grant that, unlike Tangency, the political stuff doesn't seem to be leaking back to the main fora. (One or two posters excepted.) But I'll give this friendly suggestion: talk about whatever you like here, but provide a way--at least as an option--so that when people click New Posts, they'll get everything but this forum.


If there was a way for us to do that, and by 'us' I really mean Brett, I'd have no objection.

LOL See, in the RPG area, I want an "ignore thread" button. There comes a point in a thread's life when it should be left to die in peace. :)

It looks like it works for me, logged in. I clicked on "What's New?" and nothing on the resulting page was from Pundit's Forum.

I tried it in a different browser, and it worked not logged in too.

I went back 2-3 days.

Using tags in the subject header to mark a thread as [Politics], [Gaming], etc in Pundit's forum might help.
Remember when Illinois Nazis where a joke in the Blue Brothers movie?

Democracy, meh? (538)

 "The salient fact of American politics is that there are fifty to seventy million voters each of whom will volunteer to live, with his family, in a cardboard box under an overpass, and cook sparrows on an old curtain rod, if someone would only guarantee that the black, gay, Hispanic, liberal, whatever, in the next box over doesn’t even have a curtain rod, or a sparrow to put on it."

If people want to add those kinds of tags, I'm not opposed. But I do think that most of the time, the titles make it pretty clear for the most part what the subject matter is going to be about.

As for threads that I start in this subforum, they're usually either linking to articles I just published at Break (MOST of which are not political these days), or archived blog entries from a year ago (again, most of which are not political).

That's what I do. ;)

I was thinking of it helping other people that keep threads alive long past their "consume by" dates.
