    So I've seen this twice recently- post that have completely disappeared. No text, no nothing, but the post is still there (in other words, you can see the post, just no text in it). Here are two examples- User acpitz 1 Post #50, today, in thread about gender differences in stats- http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?659384-If-there-s-one-game-where-stat-differences-are-justified-what-game-would-that-be/page6&p=7608606&viewfull=1#post7608606 User Sacrosanct In Morrus's poll on favourite edition that's not 5e- http://www.enworld.org/forum/showthread.php?659419-Favourite-D-amp-D-edition-that%92s-not-5E/page14&p=7608428&viewfull=1#post7608428 (links may not work, due to blocking). Anyway , I know that Sacrosanct is unable to see his own post as well. Maybe a glitch?

    Easy this game you play. https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/co-founder-of-leading-gay-activist-group-charged-for-abusing-minor https://www.philanthropy.com/article/Inside-the-Human-Rights/155035 https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/deceit-and-lies-we-have-been-told-on-homosexuality It looks like I erred in giving you the benefit of the doubt. I'm not sure what part of this is hard to understand. You're missing the point. When I say check your sources, I mean to do that to see how credible the sources in, in regards to accuracy. And if there is bias, it means you should look deeper. I know the HRC has bias, so that's why a look at what that article says and if it needs additional scrutiny. Here's the difference, and the point I'm trying to make: You linked to a person who has no expertise in gender identity, to an article that has not actual facts or science in it, and instead is just an opinion piece. McHugh even later admitted he has no scientific evidence, just his opin...

    Science enough for you? Paul McHugh, MD, is University Distinguished Service Professor of Psychiatry at Johns Hopkins Medical School and the former psychiatrist in chief at Johns Hopkins Hospital. He is the author of The Mind Has Mountains: Reflections on Society and Psychiatry. https://www.thepublicdiscourse.com/2015/06/15145/ Remember when I said you should check your sources? I meant it. https://hrc.org/mchughexposed?_ga=2.209677010.1346357763.1558547238-805795380.1558547238

    snip video You might want to do some research on your sources. There are a few things completely wrong about this. 1. Walt is not a scientist, health care professional, or in any way an expert on genetics. 2. Anecdotal evidence is not evidence. It's just his opinion. An opinion that isn't automatically correct. Especially since MR. Hayer also suffered from multiple personality disorder, which adds a huge layer of complexity to this entire issue. 3. Just because a person said they are part of a particular group doesn't mean they speak for that entire group. This video is like posting a video of a black person saying "white people can't be racist" and you using that to prove that white people can't be racist. 4. The fact we have actual scientific proof of multiple sexes (and we've known this since 1959) via chromosome assignment, proves that this one person's opinion is factually wrong, even if he experiences SRS himself in the past 5. Nothing in that entire video disproves curre...

    That's kinda the point. D&D is fantasy. So who cares if human women DOESN'T have the same strength as human men. It seems that it's really important to make them equal and if you are not doing that, it's somehow incorrect. Perhaps I'm misunderstanding, and I want to give you the benefit of the doubt. This reads like you are saying that playing a game where women PCs are inferior to male PCs by game mechanics is the correct way to play the game?

    p.s. Now’s a good time to remind one champion DM that there are no more genders than “male” and “female”, and that any system that explicitly codifies rules for only those two is necessarily going to be scientifically sound. There a lot of nonsense in this post, but I'll only respond to this one because it's the only one that appears to be directed at me. Also, it's both wrong (as in, scientifically unsound) and entirely transphobic, and has no place here. Once again, as much as I love it when people with more confidence in their grasp of natural and social science than actual grasp of natural and social science try to deny my existence, such speech is literal bigotry and does not belong on this forum.

    No glitch. If you are not meaning by "glitch" that our mod squad man shoots stuff down. He no like, he censor. It's the glitch for you. Nope. Perhaps in other places on the internet, that'd be a reasonable assumption, but not so much here. That's not how our moderation staff, or I, or the board software works. We rarely edit posts - generally only to add a note or to cut out a bit that is in flagrant violation of The Rules. If something you've written gets official moderation attention, you will generally leave a post in the thread (usually in red text or orange text), or issue a warning or infraction (which you'd see in your private messages) informing you that you've gone over a line, so that you can adjust your approach. Next time, if you have an issue with a mod, you might want to try talking to us, rather than making accusations. Around here, we prefer trying to work things out, rather than butting heads. Not that we promise to always let you have your way, or agre...

If a post is going to be completely eliminated, it will be completely eliminated- including the poster ID and positive. It would be as if the post never occurred (except for any quotes of it). If text were simply being removed, there would be a Mod note telling everyone WHY...typically in red text.

    Chimps are real in the real world. The study cited suggests that chimp muscle fiber strength is 'only' 50% greater than human muscle fiber strength. It didn't in fact do anything to overturn earlier estimates that chimp strength is pound for pound about 3 times that of humans - it just overturned our assumptions about why they had that much strength. Turns out bone structure, tendon strength, and ratio of fast to slow twitch muscle explain a larger share than we had realized. But the examples of chimps moving weight and exerting force well beyond what a human of the same size could manage are still there and aren't overturned. Every time one of these discussions start, I think I know at the beginning what side of it that I'm on. Like I said, I'd never introduce such a rule in a fantasy game, and I see no reason to have it in a 'Conan' game. I've vaguely uncomfortable with genre emulation of Howard's work anyway, probably never would choose to play a 'Conan' game, and would tend to ...

    Chimps are real in the real world. Hobbits are fantasy. . That's kinda the point. D&D is fantasy. So who cares if human women can have the same strength as human men. To apply that specific area of realism in a heroic fantasy game seems to defeat the point of heroic fantasy, and TBH, a bit disingenuous if you don't apply the same standard to other races in the game that don't have any explict reasons why said race would have unusually high stats for their body mass FWIW 1e halflings had a lower max STR than other races. Though, that's for the benefit if the younger generation out there - I obviously don't need to tell you that, since, as I understand it, you still run 1e by preference? I know they had a strength cap, but I'm talking about ratios, here, not flat numbers. If a 45 pound halfling can have a 17 strength, it makes zero sense to cap a 150 pound human female at 18/50% *edit* going back and looking, a 45 pound male gnome has the same strength cap as a 150 pound hu...

    Different beings can have completely different physique. Take a look at chimps for example. They are way more powerful compared to their size than humans are. You cannot compare like that. Sure I can. I think there's this myth that Chimps are small creatures that are 10x stronger then people, pound for pound. A quick google search reveals it's only 1.5 times that of humans, pound for pound, and chimps can get to be 130 pounds. Halflings are 45 pounds. That's the weight of my girlfriend's 3 year old. Well, he just turned 4 last week, but he's up to 55 pounds now. There's nothing to suggest that halflings are some weird super species that has a higher count of fast twitch muscle fibers than any other mammal in existence. Point is, is that if a halfling can have a strength score very high in comparison to body mass and no one really cares, then the idea that women need to be limited is a pretty eccentric.

    As you say, "Our games say things about the players." If players are not grown-ups and cannot make the difference between fantasy and reality Humans help define and reinforce their moral and ethical positions via their stories. The idea that stories are not reality, and therefore should have no influence on the real world, ignores much of the purpose of human storytelling - and flies in the face of how good stories have significant emotional impact on people. then yes, you should not explore any mentally challenging areas that might need some control of ones emotions and such. Then it's better to play teletubbies RPG or something other laalaa-land. "Grown-ups," are the people on the planet who do the most senseless harm to other people. Grown-ups throw around accusations that others are emotionally immature, for example. That aside, I think you need to better support the idea that perpetuating the same-old stereotypes laid out decades (even centuries) ago is somehow ment...

    It's just a game after all, right? It's just a game. It's just a movie. It's just a book. It's just a joke. It doesn't matter if I meant it as a *joke* right? It is "just" a thing, until that thing harms someone. Until that thing imposes limits for no good reason. Until that thing gets repeated enough that we let the sense of the fiction bleed into reality. Our stories don't take place in a vacuum. They take place within a cultural context, a social context. Our stories say things about the story-tellers. Our games say things about the players. What do you (the reader, not acpitz specifically) want your game, your stories, to say about you? If anyone here wants to do such a thing at their table, well it is their table. But, if you *really* want to claim it doesn't matter, then flip it - make it so *women* have the strength, and the men are weaker.

    Dwarfs are short and chubby with big beards But all those Scottish accents are just racial stereotyping. Everybody knows they have Russian accents.

    Didn't see Hillfolk mentioned. It's take on player interactions is quite interesting. The drama system is quite rewarding when there is a good group. The "dramatic pole" is an exciting addition to character conception. It appears (sort of) in the new Over the Edge as a characters "question mark". That's a character trait that is destined to come into question as part of the story. If your character's question mark is "Honorable-?", then acting honorably and failing to act honorably are both "in character".

    Ah! That explains. Would it be too much to take that away from the menu to avoid future unnecessary questions :) I don’t write the software, I just buy it. :)
