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.

Hey DM_Curt. I see they extended you the permaban. Congratulations! And welcome to the permabanned members club. Meetings are Tuesdays at six, bring your own drink of choice, and let's play some games :D
Right as the last seven day ban was due to expire too. Not a new tactic for the worthless meatbags that comprise TBP's staff.
The initial ban made no mention of a potential increase in penalty. That tells me that the mod staff overall has been discussing the thread and are looking for whatever excuses they can to permaban for wrongthink. I’m not surprised that DM_Curt caught an initial 7-day ban for his post, but the mods are usually up front at the time of the initial ban if they’re going to take the matter “backstage” (a tell of the performative nature of TBP moderation) to determine if a longer penalty is going to be handed out. I won’t be surprised if at some point membership at this site becomes grounds for the mods to invoke their Rule 0.

TBP still can't configure an email server properly: https://forum.rpg.net/index.php?threads/no-notifications-via-email.889911/

This doesn't surprise me much, but it amuses me that here at the end of 2021, RPGnet is staffed by people who might as well be trapped in 1997 from a technical perspective.

I think it already is. They have labeled us a hate site, after all.

Wild to see how TBP has gone insane just reading through this, although my most recent memory of them is simply getting annoyed because anytime I would ask about homebrew mechanics for something, no matter the genre, I'd just get bombarded with "use Fate Core use Fate Core". Hell, the rpg reddit got like that too and now it's non-stop "use 5e" for everything...

Glad I finally found this site courtesy of Pundit and Ocule, although I am more of a lurker than a poster.
Forever GM that owns way too many books.

Here isn't so different; you get a fairly regular dosing of "use an OSR game" for damn near everything.

Not from me, you won't. Then again, I'll tell you to use The Reflex System...

  Every site has its darlings. TBP tends to favor the new hotness, this site is OSR-centric, EN World will always gravitate towards D&D, and the RPGPub loves it some Mythras.

I agree. I’m more likely to suggest Runequest or BRP though.

But we should live up to our reputation; let’s suggest to use FATAL or MYFAROG for absolutely everything.

I'll just advise you to ignore anything HappyDerp says, because he's a tard.

But in all seriousness, I've found that mechanics are second fiddle to finding a good group you sync with personally. A clunky system can be redeemed if you share it with good friends; but even the neatest system in the world isn't much fun if you're not happy with your fellow gamers.

It's pretty much "Who disagreed with the provably false narrative? Can't have that around!"

As for this being any sort of a hate site.....that's ironic, coming from them.

"Shut up," they explained.

Poor Tanka. Chained to the narrative. 'It was MURDER!' he cries, despite three convicted vermin trying to violently attack Rittenhouse. I wonder what he thinks of that black kid who shot up his school and was out on bond in time for his birthday party?

What a pathetic waste of digital real estate TBP is.

"He was an idiot" should really only be uttered about actually minor offenses, not murder. Giving him an out like that is just the same as judges giving other white men slaps on the wrist because "they have a bright future ahead of them" while also giving Black men life sentences over inconsequential shit.


You're taking a month off, and are banned from this thread. Appeals may be sent to the admins at admin.rpgnet@gmail.com.

White men have recently been sent to jail in several cases where black people were killed, but not so when white people were killed. Whenever something happens to black people the media stoke massive riots. Also, every single time they compare black sentencing to white sentencing they "forget" to mention repeat offenses. This guy has no idea what's going on.

It's important to document their idiocy. Haven't I told you to archive, archive, archive the left's blather? They WILL memory hole their shit if given half a chance.
