Louis CK mocked the Parkland shooting survivors. Kids who saw their friends die.

Prior to that(?) he went away because it turns out he liked to masturbate in front of young women comedians.

If someone does some bigoted shit years ago, and it resurfaces and instead of denouncing it, you reaffirm your position, kind of cool with finding some other funny cartoon or YouTube man.
Agreed. Since that got mentioned, I'm reminded of how some people, when that bigoted shit does resurface, and they do denounce it, still get utterly shat on by morons who don't think with the head that's on their shoulders. And then someone who only just tuned in because of the new ruckus, turns the conversation into, "Well what did you do to get this kind of negative attention in the first place?"

AND THAT'S cancel culture. Which shouldn't be getting twisted up with "pedos and other sexual abusers can get fucking dumpstered"

And as far as this whole bigot outreach shit? Im not going to spend my time sifting through their bigot programming to unfuck them unless they have a direct and personal involvement in my life. Someone comes seigheiling in it's just into the trash if I don't need to bother with them.

It's not like there is such a shortage of people that anyone should be fucking quilted into trying save all these poor fucking incels and wannabe kid fuckers or High school rapists.

I mean, I'm totally fine with throwing the whole ass living celeb, content creator, or other, into the bin over 'minor differences of opinion, shit like bodily autonomy or transphobia. The world has more than enough other folks making shit that don't think it's their or the state's place to tell those who have an unwanted pregnancy they are murderers, other shit like not allowing folks to marry, or the audacity of wanting respect for their gender identity.

I never actually got to play HOL, but the book was raw punk rock.. I love how it's clearly written by people that have had ENOUGH of D&D and "Gary" style games. And the fact that the whole thing looks like it's scribbled in someone's notebook gives it this rugged DIY energy.. makes me want to design my own game.

I have had a hankering recently for something that gives a different experience than the "power fantasy", or something that's less mechanically driven and more of a storytelling game. I have only run one session of Dungeon World, but I'm loving it because it's soooo collaborative. But I'm also the king of prep, and Dungeon World basically asks you not to prepare for sessions as a DM, aside from picking out a few images and monster ideas you want to incorporate.

I used to play white wolf a little bit, but I really felt like the gameplay described in the rulebook was always pretty far from how the game actually plays out (except for werewolf). Like, Vampire is a game ostensibly about people struggling and failing to retain their humanity, tragic personal spirals... except the games I played were always more like political thrillers, and the humanity was kind of just this mechanic. I feel like that probably expresses itself better over a long arc, but our games always just descended into petty PvP until we break up the chronicle because everybody's mad at each other.

Mage was real cool, but the game is, like, designed to spiral into a series of philosophical discussions. Which is fun if that's what you're into. But again, we never managed to resolve any cool plotlines because we'd get hung up on topics like "Can divination solve the Halting Problem?"

I think those are universal experiences with WW games. VTM is always either political thriller or champions w/ fangs, and MTA either champions w/ MAJIK or PHIL.

"die easily"

GURPs says hi.

Or Rolemaster. Although tbh it's not that hard because you have crossreference like 20 charts before you find out if you died or not.

Yeah, but the bulk of any critque of any DnD I see from THOSE PEOPLE is, DnD is imperialistic/colonialist/racist/white male power fantasy, only about combat, needs to have MOAR storytelling tools (or tools it already has but like reading it hard), or isn't a RPG because PCs can die (easily in OSR) so there is no real character development or growth.

And I'm all...ok some of those are valid points, but...like shut up unless you got some shit better than "I took A creative writing, women/gender/race studies course in college" level takes.

AND dnd etal are a pretty good lingua franca. A lot of THOSE PEOPLE just seem really bitter than no one wants to play their hipster game at their local shop.

Also RIFTS is literally heavily and baroquely house-ruled AD&D.

The bullshit RPG forum is still mostly theory wanking, indie/storygame discussions, and one person telling folks why they don't like the OSR or DnD.  :lulz:

Well it did basically sour me on participating in this grand new forum. Like I have a game-conceot I'd really like non-dnd grogs to look at, but like fuck most indie gamers.

Welcome to Howl's World.

For real. I restrained myself full on shitting him because i am an adult and I actually do shut up and listen, when folks are talking other games I am not interested or about the intersection if racism and the like.

But the instant some punkasses start trying to say what dnd OUGHT to do, I just have to say 'why.' DND is always at worst the 3rd best game at doing any one thing. Like if the thrust of someone's arguement is 'shut up white boy get fucked.

When they follow you home with stupid grins and their pants full of shit, you are a Doktor.

The best part is only the white cis man got moderated and then flounced. But it's the Man coming on him that is such a travesty.
