The site owner frequently claims "No politics" but means "No Centrist or Conservative politics" as threads will be permitted to go hundreds of posts of left wing rhetoric and dogma without a single warning, ban, or lock. But one or two...

    That seems to me to be a very targeted and political decision. The moderation here has a clear bias. Look at the threads you're referencing. The first one was closed because people were asserting that the event with Larry was wrong and supporting him, the second one was condemning him. The first one had 20 posts over the course of two days, the second one had dozens. The first one was...

  • 05:01 PM - drnate29 mentioned Rygar in post Can Hobby Stores Make Their Saving Throw?
    Fully agree with Coreyartus...I joked with my friends about starting an RPG-themed nursing home in 20 years. The path forward for gaming stores is absolutely to promote community and provide a comfortable space to play with related services. Private rooms (so you aren't having to talk over near-by tables), strong Wi-Fi and food service would be great and I'd think do-able ideas. I'm not a MtG or Pokémon player, so I can't really speak to that, but I'd agree with Rygar that your FLGS will very likely fold if it tries to survive on product sales.

    ...s) the training will be 1500 per level being trained into each time (so here it's 3K + 4.5K + 6K + 7.5K = 21K) and if there's any penalties for poor roleplay etc. then a multiplier hits the training costs for that level on a x2 to x4 scale based on the DM's judgement.You are using the wrong levels: as per DMG p 86, "The level of the aspiring character should be computed at current (not to be gained) level." Hence Hussar's figure of 15,000 is correct, assuming a "roleplay" factor of 1: 1+2+3+4 = 10, x 1500 = 15,000 gp. Ghost Tower is also bizarre - it has some very game-first elements within it and some other elements that could really work well in any dungeon. It was written as a tournament module and though it wasn't really converted that well for open play I sure had a blast (and so did the players) when I ran it a few years back. Good times!I didn't say it was a bad module. My point was only that it is a counterexample (one of several) to the "game"/"world" dichotomy drawn by Rygar. the Dragonlance modules that Hussar has already referred to belong to the 1st ed AD&D era.They're of that era in real-world time, but they're more of the 2e era in design and expected play/DM style.This seems like the worst sort of projection of the present onto the past! At the time the DL modules were written there was no 2nd ed or "2nd ed era". They were written, and published, and played, under the 1st ed rules, years before 2nd ed was written and published. They are an important part of the evidence for what constituted 1st ed AD&D play, and they show that dungeon crawling in the classic mode was only one component of the full range of play. lewpuls himself recognised the breadth of playstyles right back in his White Dwarf columns from the late 70s and early 80s. He had (and still seems to have) strong views about his preferred way to play, but he never made the mistake of thinking that it was the only way to play D&D/RPGs.

  • 06:58 AM - Hussar mentioned Rygar in post The Dilemma of the Simple RPG
    Heh, I agree Rygar. I think both Paizo (first) and now WotC have proven that there is certainly money to be made in adventures. That we don't really need the endless splat churn that we saw for many, many years. Heck, considering that three years after its release (about), the 5e PHB is sitting at number 33 O.O on Amazon in Books. Not in niche, but in all books. That's AMAZING. It really does look like WotC has hit the magic bullet this time around.

    What does one have to do with the other? If you have a con policy of "accusation is essentially expulsion," you reduce the risk of sexual assault, and you also apparently get some stuff like Rygar pointed out (assuming, as I generally do, that those people aren't just lying to get attention and push an agenda). Why can't we say and wear what we want but ALSO not let rape or any physical assault happen...what if the rapes says the right words...then it's ok for your daughter to get raped since he didn't say something wrong first? Because the world's not a perfect place. Innocent people get hurt. Sometimes, we can choose which innocent people and how hurt, but until people stop being awful, innocent people will always get hurt.

  • 03:12 PM - doctorhook mentioned Rygar in post Given WotC plans with the RPG will 5e always be the #1 seller?
    ...erything go through the way "they" want it. You don't just go and buy a company and then let it do it's own thing. That's not how it works. Mother company doesn't sit back and wait for the cash to flow. They have a list of everything that is going on and they will have their eyes on everything. Remember, they supply the money so they want to know how it's spent and what the plan is to get that money back and then some. It never just "stops there". This will be doubled due to what happened with 4th edition.Obviously yes, Hasbro oversees WotC operations to ensure that brands are being fully capitalized upon. It's very likely that WotC's new "expand the brand" approach to D&D came at Hasbro's urging (since it's very similar to what Hasbro has done with other brands). I agree with Morrus that it's highly unlikely that Hasbro currently gives more than the slightest thought about the creative direction of D&D. Back on topic: Your original comment was a response to my response to Rygar. Since you disagree with me, are you agreeing with Rygar that 5E is unlikely to succeed because of WotC's corporate structure? You've mentioned your education in finance, so I can't imagine you find his assessment any less ridiculous than I do. But, as I wrote in another thread, Paizo will be happy with growth, regardless of whether that means being #1 or #2 (or any other number for that matter).Certainly Paizo will be happy with growth. Unfortunately the paradox of success is that it's difficult to keep becoming more successful when you're already the most successful. More importantly, I believe that the Pathfinder brand specifically is facing some very serious weaknesses and threats (5E, market saturation, and a fickle customer base) that are likely to burst the PF bubble before it has room to grow again. If Paizo is fast, smart, and lucky, I could still be proven wrong. But D&D isn't just about the RPG. So getting hung up on the details of the RPG would be a waste of time s...

    .... Perhaps you might benefit from reading some conservative essays with the idea that the owner of property - whether that property is land, or a ship, or territory in cyberspace - decides what to do with that property. (Whether the government can sometimes intervene, is a question with many answers, depending on whether it's a republican government, an authoritarian government, or something else.) Morrus is the owner. You are not. Hunh. I looked at "Find latest posts". It looks like you're here to do three things: 1. complain about left wing bias and exclusion of centrists 2. make "get woke go broke" arguments 3. every now and then, as a distant third to 1. and 2., you discuss games. "Green Ronin is gone. They've just based their future on a political statement and in doing so, just tossed out the majority of their market. Anyone who is conservative is now gone, most males are gone, anyone who is deeply religious is now gone. For what? A meaningless political statement." - Rygar, a year ago. Meanwhile, only last month, Correia and his fans discussed how to harass Green Ronin at cons. "So your call, are we going to eliminate harassment or microaggressions? Do you have a business plan for how conventions and RPG's survive after eliminating at least 50% of its consumers?" - Rygar, in Harassment "Conventions and game shops are going to all belly up this year, because eliminating everyone but certain subsets of left wing politics isn't going to leave enough people to continue, but we can do that." - Rygar, in Harassment "Comics sales tanked after going this route, I've seen figures as high as a 91% drop touted..." - Rygar, in Race thread "The problem there is that beyond some relative simple and common rules, harassment policies generally end up being trivial to exploit for gain or a legal liability. Since a lot of harassment uses a very loose definition of the term which gives advantage to the accuser, widespread implementation of these policies can a...

    That seems to me to be a very targeted and political decision. In the sense that it is intended for forward some agenda related to government? Not in the slightest. I am not of the opinion that what happens on this website has any impact on real politics. I am approaching it in terms of keeping the site operating smoothly. Why is the list of criticisms for left wing politics banned on this site, but not a single solitary criticism of center or conservative politics banned? Because, ultimately, it isn't actually about politics. It is about people being safe when engaging in our shared fandoms. I would strongly recommend renaming the site to "LWWord" or something along those lines to make it clear the content here is politically driven... Let us have a reality check on this. The current incarnation of the boards has some 7,172,000+ posts on it. The thread in question has rather shy of 1400 posts. In that sense, that thread is about two hundredths of one percent ...

    Basically, this whole thread? Because it went that direction dozens of pages ago and we're well into the point where left wing political activists are doing their level best to out-enlighten the last poster. It doesn't help that the modding is the worst of the activist trolling, they shut down the comments on the actual article because the conversation wasn't going the way they wanted it to, but let it go here because they're getting the response they wanted since this thread is pretty much just left wing activists now. If the mods actually wanted to prevent the discussion from being held, they'd have shut this thread down two days ago, so we can be pretty certain that they want a very specific set of comments. Regardless, I'll be banned shortly, because the goal of this site is to remove all centrist and conservatives from even being around gaming and only allow RPG themed left wing politics. It may or may not be the entire thread. Like I said previously, when I see a thread s...

    So your call, are we going to eliminate harassment or microaggressions? Do you have a business plan for how conventions and RPG's survive after eliminating at least 50% of its consumers? Oh, Rygar. I find your lack of faith in capitalism disturbing. You're ignoring free market solutions. For example, if Company Alpha held conventions on a "boys will be boys" basis, while Company Beta held conventions on a "zero tolerance for misbehavior" basis, then the market could sort out the relative demand. You could go to AlphaCon. You can say whatever you want, right up to the limit of the law, to any charming young woman in a Princess Daphne outfit; or perhaps just beyond the limit of the law, if a cop isn't around to enforce it. Eltab can encourage her to respond with physical violence. S'mon could talk to her cleavage. JackTheRabbit can run a game in which no one can tell which player is running which character, and by the end, no one's even sure that he's the DM. Prosfilaes can run an alternate history game in which the PCs crush the riot at the Bastille and thus avert the French Revolution, preventing many subsequent executions of aristocrats on charges of ideological impurity.

    Only when you have a known population that you can survey. You can survey a city. You can survey the attendees of a movie, play, sports game, etc. You cannot survey an unknown population. When your product is a set of three books, and n number of people in a group need only one set, you cannot tell how many people are there, what their sex is, or how often they play. The numbers presented here are about as accurate as randomly generated values. They have no way of knowing how many people play, no way of contacting them, they're blind. You are engaging in a false dichotomy. In fact, a city isn't a simple known population, and this one isn't an entirely unknown population. In fact there are ways to determine population sizes if you want to know that, for instance capture-recapture methods, which don't actually require ear tags or leg bands to make work. The reality is that early questions in the survey are used to filter out people who are ineligible and shouldn't be counted. I'm sure ...

    The closest thing they could do is cold call people, or survey some game shops. The most likely thing they could do is survey game shops in their HQ region, which given the culture in their area, is going to give them *extremely* bad information. I don't think anyone would try to assert that Seattle is equivalent to anything other than a few cities in CA, and very different from everywhere else. Of course they didn’t survey Seattle. What a silly thing to say.

    I agree. This announcement is basically "Knowing the Unknowable". -How do they know how many players there are? <snip> Another totally fabricated number. These numbers are pretty clearly from a market survey study. While WotC may not do very good surveys---I have no idea---these kinds of projections can be done well. For example, unemployment numbers and crime victimization statistics are both done, in whole or part, by surveys. For instance, if you want to determine the number of crime victims, you do a survey and then try to extrapolate. What these numbers do NOT have is an uncertainty estimate, although they did do the responsible thing and round them pretty drastically (e.g., "40%" rather than "43%"). There are companies that do this very well, so I'd hope that WotC would have hired one rather than, say, trying to gin one up themselves on Survey Monkey for cheap. After writing good questions, getting meaningful uncertainty estimates and dealing with sampling biases are the really h...

I don't care what you call them, back then or in the present, they serve the same purpose, so vulnerable groups can do as we are constantly advised, avoid potentially harmful situations/persons.

    The saddest part is, if they actually tried producing D&D they'd probably be able to grow their market to huge proportions. Compared to any other time in my gaming experience from around 82ish, there is a LOT more people playing, and those people make up a WAY bigger percentage of the population than they used to.

    Either every accusation of harassment is true and shouldn't be held to standards requiring clear proof, and just suggesting that we require a degree of investigation is misogony and victim-blaming, or accusations can be false and we should investigate and treat claims with some degree of suspicion. Moronic argument. You've taken the extreme position "every claim is true" and contrasted it not with the opposite extreme position ("every claim is false") but against the entire rest of the spectrum: "every claim might be true and might be false." You're weighing 100% certainty against 1 to 99% uncertainty. None of the reasonable, rationale people in this thread are claiming that 100% of all accusations are true. The ridiculous claim in this thread is that women's reports of harassment are more likely than other claims to be made up and therefore we should err on the side of protecting men. Despite decades and decades of evidence of what happens when you do.
