  • 08:54 PM - Morrus mentioned jimmifett in post Big Changes At White Wolf Following Controversy
    And the usual suspects show up instantly like bad pennies. That’s two of the trifecta. One to go. @jimmifett and @Derren, don’t post again in this thread, please. Jimmifett, it would be nice if you posted about something else sometimes, but since as far as I can make out the only reason you post in this community is to decry any hint of inclusiveness, it's time for you to leave.

  • 11:45 PM - Morrus mentioned jimmifett in post Sean's Picks of the Week (0504-0508) - Big New Stuff (Dresden, D&D, Cypher)!
    I can guess what you're referring too, @jimmifett, given that you've been asked to drop it before; as has been mentioned before, both parties have clearly indicated that what you are accusing them of is not the case. . If you want to post potentially libellous stuff, please do it somewhere else. Waiting a few weeks then sneaking it in again as a vaguepost is not acceptable.

  • 12:53 AM - Abstruse quoted jimmifett in post News Digest: Evil Hat Scales Back Release Schedule, D&D Errata Announced, Star Trek Adventures: DS9, and more!
    I personally have zero love for Evil Hat after what they pulled and can't wish them out of business any faster. What they did was wrong, disgusting, and should never be forgotten. They are, imo, a group of bullies that harken back to the il-informed moral crusaders out to kill DnD back in the 80s. That's all I've got to say about that. "After what they pulled..." What, exactly, would that be? Overexpanding due to a rising market and finding themselves over-extended after a financial analysis and cutting back production and staff in order to stay in business? Or was there something else? Because it seems like you're comparing a company who took a chance to grow their business that didn't pan out and are correcting it with an outside group uninvolved with the game industry who scapegoated roleplaying games in a fearmongering attempt to gain national attention and distract from actual real-world problems that almost destroyed the entire industry along with catching the then-burgeoning video game m...

  • 09:59 PM - MNblockhead quoted jimmifett in post Roll20 users; are my impressions right or wrong on this
    I personally found roll20 a nightmare to use, even paid, as a GM. I gave them a month paid, wasted money. FG, I used the heck out of that for a variety of games. roll20 also wanted to ban a paying user for wanting to have a single gender game, whilst allowing other single-gender games to exist without any such threat, just bc of differing genders. Wanting a single gender game does not automatically make the players, organizers, or the game itself sexist, but roll20 apparently publicly has double standards. Another reason for them to not get any more of my money. The whole banned user is a bit of a tempest in a teapot. Sure, sucks for that user, and the company could have handled it better, but this is not something that would sway me either way. There are a lot of causes in this messed up world that deserve my attention. This one is way down at the bottom. I'm more interested and concerned by the ban on players based on who they want to include in their game. I feel like I'm missing something...
  • 09:06 PM - Gradine quoted jimmifett in post Roll20 users; are my impressions right or wrong on this
    And yet, other "no males allowed" groups exist without fear of banning. I don't care if it's "no miniature space hamsters allowed" games, if that's how a group chooses to play, respect how they choose to associate or apply bans evenly without exception. It's hypocrisy at it's finest. Anti-discrimination clauses are pretty sensible policies for any platform operating on the internet, but it's also important to recognize that not all cases are equal and there can sometimes be worthwhile reasons to consider and/or accept exceptions. There is not, for instance, anything remotely approaching parity in the relative amount of sexual harassment (up to and including stalking and/or doxxing) faced by men or by women, especially on the internet. Until such parity exists (or better yet, dudes stop being :):):):)ing creeps on the internet) the need for female-only spaces on an internet platform is perfectly reasonable in a way male-only spaces cannot hope to similarly justify. Not to say that there couldn't...

Another reason for them to not get any more of my money. The ban wasn't on having or wanting "single gender games" (which I suspect many Roll20 games are going to be anyway), the ban was on using the Roll20 to advertise games as "No girls allowed".

  • 02:21 AM - Morrus quoted jimmifett in post X & O For More Fun
    Agreed mostly, and I would be fine if that non-sense were in the path/star-finder society rules docs. Thats the kind of place that language belongs for sanctioned public play to cover their corporate keisters from the professionally offended crowd, instead of wasting space in a core book. That could be 3 or 4 more feats that could be added onto the hundreds plus in the playtest! But we all know paizo is a committed member of that crowd and this is just pushing agenda driven propaganda. BC of it, my wife is extremely against buying any more paizo products, and I'm half inclined to agree. Oops. Careless. You’ve been here long enough to know not to use derogatory phrases like “agenda driven propaganda” to dismiss opinions you don’t agree with. It’s like you read the rules and carefully selected the exact phrase we call out. Argue with positions, not insults.

    ... But we all know paizo is a committed member of that crowd and this is just pushing agenda driven propaganda. ... Really? I didn't know that. As far as I can recall Paizo has stayed above that fray.
  • 08:26 PM - epithet quoted jimmifett in post X & O For More Fun
    Starting on the bottom right of page 5 of the playtest and wasting an entire column of page 6 that could be better spent on just about anything else. Hah! Yeah, I had skipped over that bit to get to the actual game. I've certainly observed the general trend in the industry to include that sort of virtue signaling in the introductory pages of game manuals, but I think that's the first one I've seen that goes so far as to call it a "social contract." I like how the follow it up on the same page with "there's no wrong way to play Pathfinder." My presumption is that all these publishers know that their game is going to be mostly played by groups of friends, and therefore no one is looking for them for guidance on who to play the game with. I think these sorts of statements are simply an effort to diffuse what has become an almost inevitable scrutiny of the product looking for any and everything about which someone could manufacture outrage over the "representation" of some subset of real-world peo...

    ... This is as bad as paizo trying to force "social contract" obligations on me as a game master that i'm expected to oblige in the playtest. ... I am unfamiliar with this. What is Paizo's "social contract" thing?

  • 12:51 AM - Dr. Bull quoted jimmifett in post There's A New Edition of Savage Worlds Coming!
    I ll likely pick up, tho Genesys is now by far the superior system for multi-setting rpgs I have no desire to get into a debate with jimmifett about Savage Worlds v. Genesys (because I have never played Genesys). I've read a lot of good things about Genesys, so I'll probably check it out. However, I cannot emphasize enough how much I appreciate and enjoy Savage Worlds. In past years, I've taught newbies how to build a character and start playing within 15 minutes. Character generation in SW is the most flexible I've ever seen. Within 5 minutes, I can build a Warforged Battle-Tank, a Jedi Knight, AND an Elf Sorcerer. Within that 5 minute time limit, I would probably still have time to walk to the fridge and grab a beer... Best of all, the combats are super efficient, clear, and realistic. I love how it can simulate gritty modern warfare or high fantasy equally well. In fact, a game master could easily match a platoon of high-tech special forces against a tribe of goblin necromancers (commanded by a Hobgoblin Shaman) without a single pause in the action. In the course of playing a 3-4 hour session, my old group hard...

  • 01:02 AM - Dannyalcatraz quoted jimmifett in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    Your 20-25% figures for sexual assualt are pure feldercarb, repeatedly debunked, and everyone knows it. Those are rates as bad as or worse than Darfor, and proven to only exist when the definition of sexual assualt is grossly expanded to include things that are not actually sexual assault. Actually, not really. One out of every six American women have been the victims of an attempted or completed rape in their lifetime (14.8% completed rape; 2.8% attempted rape). A total of 17.7 million women have been victims of these crimes. (Prevalence, Incidence and Consequences of Violence Against Women Survey, National Institute of Justice and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1998). The DoJ’s National Crime Victimization Survey estimates run @1/10th that number. Why? The NCVS survey focuses on criminal acts, but the CDC’s National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Survey also asks about instances of forced sex which respondents may or may not regard as crimes. IOW, the CDC numbe...

    Malicious accusations by women are unfortunately very common in the modern world. Again, an assertion contrary to the actual crime stats aggregated and analyzed by scholars and US crime enforcement agencies (like the DoJ), which pegs the occupancy of such incidents at 10% or less. You are entitled to your opinion, but in most analyses, “10% or less” is not considered “very common”.

  • 11:12 PM - Doug McCrae quoted jimmifett in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    This is why there can't be civil conversations, soon as you disrupt the wagon, you are a labelled misogynist or worse just bc you don't agree with the narrative. The problem is this comment: Malicious accusations by women are unfortunately very common in the modern world.Why do you say "malicious accusations by women" and not just "malicious accusations"? Do you have any evidence that women are more likely to make malicious accusations than men? I wouldn't go so far as to say you're a misogynist or even that this is a misogynistic comment but I certainly think it's a sexist comment.

    This is why there can't be civil conversations, soon as you disrupt the wagon, you are a labelled misogynist or worse just bc you don't agree with the narrative. Have fun with this thread, no point when you can't reason with the unreasonable. This site is really gone down hill the last 5 years, going from great and informative to dumpster fire to tire fire. I notice there are still no actual statistics or studies being cited.

    Your 20-25% figures for sexual assualt are pure feldercarb, repeatedly debunked, and everyone knows it. Those are rates as bad as or worse than Darfor, and proven to only exist when the definition of sexual assualt is grossly expanded to include things that are not actually sexual assault. The specific numbers for sexual assault are irrelevent. You are still saying you are more concerned with the fraction of the fraction, than with the larger fraction. EX: per the FBI just rape by the revised definition is 53,621 as of 2013. Since false crime reporting is, as others have said, fairly uniform across the board at about 10%, what you are saying is that you are more concerned with the 5,362 cases of false reporting, than with the over 50 thousand cases of actual rape.

    Malicious accusations by women are unfortunately very common in the modern world. Horse and :):):):). You paying any attention to actual statistics or studies to back this up or is this just the misogyny talking?
  • 10:42 PM - quoted jimmifett in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    Malicious accusations by women are unfortunately very common in the modern world. You mean like, ~<=10% of all reported crimes? Whereas, statistically 1/4-5 women is going to be sexually assaulted? So, when you start saying that your concern is about the 1/40-50 possibilities because they are "very common" as opposed to concern about the 1/4-5, we start raising eyebrows, because "very common" seems to define 1/4 or 1/5 a lot more than it defines 1/40 or 1/50.

    Malicious accusations by women are unfortunately very common in the modern world. They happen at about the same rate as other false accusations for other crimes. Yet, as has been noted elsewhere, you never see handwringing about yellow journalism or witch hunts in those cases.

    Lets see, the frothing fanatics that got the tongue in cheek make fun of everyone involved card game based on gamergate removed from rpgnow for wrongthink. Then there were more frothing fanatics that tried everything they could to get that villains to defeat supplement for a heroic game axed from rpg now even tho it was properly rated adult. Apparently, some believe you cant vote with your own dollar. There was the ludicrous teardown of the new vampire beta by frothing fanatics misconstruing it. And, apparently now, some person that has a personal vendetta against Fannon. Thats just the hobby game insustry. In IT, you have a group that organized a plot to get linus torvalds alone so they could claim he sexually harassed. In Comics, there was recently a group of industry insiders that plotted in a facebook group to corner an idealogical opponent of theres at a con and harass him in an attempt to make him get violent so they could have him arrested and labeled as having dangerous ptsd from...
