    White people and the black guy, yeah. Hence me missing it. I'm not a terribly observant person. On more than a few occasions, I've missed the implied racism of stories told to me as a kid. Looking back decades later it's like "oh, that's what they meant. I just thought it was a fun myth about...

    How's it like living in a world where everybody with any opinion you don't like all belong to the same gestalt group responsible for everything "bad"? Like, I didn't figure that the Reylos were the ones pushing for sentient creatures in D&D to not have set alignments and then wrote one...

    Like, I knew it explored the idea of racism, but I didn't catch the specific racial component. Probably because I'm not nearly as clever as Rod Serling and the apes didn't exactly have stereotypically "black" traits (according to my white Montanan child brain, anyway)

    Don't seem to recall that from the movie, but I didn't watch the later ones. One thing I've picked up on though: even if you're attacking a trope, maybe don't directly compare a group of people to their stereotyped monster form? Well meaning as I may be, if I use a group of monkeys as a stand...

    The combat wheelchair doesn't give a character any advantages that a character with functional legs doesn't get. It's a fan-made supplement that makes it so the DM *doesn't* have to come up with more rules. And now there's one adventure out of 17 in a supplement that doesn't have stairs. Turns...

    Agreed. Goblins, in and of themselves, aren't inherently antisemitic. Huge nosed, gold living goblins that run the banks, though... Might not have been Rowling's intent, but it certainly rhymes.

    I just realized that The Gamers™️ are worried that the Socialist SJWs are going to infest the Socialist Chinese game with their Western Socialist SJW values and I need to go lie down for a bit.

    Oh no, something in D&D might be overpowered in specific white-room simulations, let me fetch my fainting couch, which I left next to my summoning druids and chain-trip fighters. Do you have any specific knowledge of any of this at all? Like, it's slippery slopes all the way down and yet the...

    ...the...horror? Oh...no...an adventure supplement with 17 different one-shot adventures has...one...wheelchair accessible dungeon? And that's the slippery slope of legend and not a reference to a fan made, podcast popularized battle wheelchair? Dunno, don't know why you can't ignore the...

    COVID-19 Vaccine to be Available to All Adults by May 1st

    Got my second Phizer shot a week ago. Felt generically shitty for a few days. Roommate got laid out for two days with COVIDish symptoms.

    I mean, I'd hope modern SciFi has changed compared to Flash Gordon and Ming the Merciles. And it has. THE CHANGE IS CALLING FROM THE HOUSE 🙀 For such a spirited defense of "but you can just change it to what you want, so who cares what's canon", you seem to care very much about what's official...

    Okay maybe we don't need more remakes.

    Considering where the negative receptions on TLoU2 came from and how in love the SJWs were with the first one, I don't think pandering to SJWs is the direction they'd be going

    The older members had played with Gygax a bit back before D&D had editions. They were 40-50 at the time. Good chunk of other members were early Air Force age. I was a teen when I joined. Warhammer 40k had just transitioned to 3rd edition and started taking itself too seriously. No argument...
