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 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.

Publishing house rules was a good 50% of TSR's business during the 90s.

I mean hell, Rifts is just a bunch of house rules for D&D that grew into a system.


As was Rolemaster.

If I was younger and had the entire weekends to kill playing it, I still would play.

Anymore, not so much.  But yeah, it's a fun game.

Well, it is discrimination, but if one wants it to be historically correct, it would be wrong to not include that systematic discrimination.

Essentially, it is wrong to imply that pundit is the discriminating one, just as i don't think what'shisname is a racist for using a certain word several times in his movie "Django". ... Or a few times in Pulp Fiction, for that matter.


A depiction of discrimination isn't discrimination. It isn't an endorsement. Just like a depiction of violence isn't necessarily an endorsement of violence.

This confuses a lot of critics.
You're one microscopic cog in his catastrophic plan, designed and directed by his red right hand.
