  • 03:19 AM - epithet quoted DM Magic in post Roll20 users; are my impressions right or wrong on this
    ...You can't be racist against a white person. They hold all the power. You can't be sexist against a man. They hold all the power. Reverse racism and reverse sexism is not real. ... Even if all the people in power were white, or male, that doesn't mean that all individual white people or all individual males have any power. If you don't have power, and you try to get something, and the only reason you can't have it is because of your race, gender, religion, national origin, etc., then you have been discriminated against, and subjected to bigotry. It's like saying that because all of the Wall Street hedge fund managers are white (I don't actually know whether they are or not, btw,) white people can't be poor. It simply does not follow. I am also confused by the argument that "reverse racism" doesn't exist. I mean, if you discriminate against people of a different race, that's racism, right? If you discriminate against people of your own race, that's reverse racism, isn't it? I've see...

  • 09:46 PM - Flexor the Mighty! quoted DM Magic in post Roll20 users; are my impressions right or wrong on this
    That someone thinks racism and sexism is "politics" is beyond hilarious. And beyond depressing. Just that you are giving a "political" definition of racism. Here is the Merriam Webster definition. Definition of racism 1 : a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race 2a : a doctrine or political program b...

    That someone thinks racism and sexism is "politics" is beyond hilarious. And beyond depressing. No, they aren't. Your personal views are a very politicized take on those definitions, though. Keep it off the boards. Thanks.
  • 09:34 PM - Gradine quoted DM Magic in post Roll20 users; are my impressions right or wrong on this
    That someone thinks racism and sexism is "politics" is beyond hilarious. And beyond depressing. Well, the problem is that everything, when you really break it down, is political. That's just how our society is set up. The board tends to give pretty broad leeway to political topics as they relate to issues within the gaming field, however, especially when they don't veer into personal attacks.
  • 09:25 PM - Ovinomancer quoted DM Magic in post Roll20 users; are my impressions right or wrong on this
    What ever will the white men do? Poor, poor them! You can't be racist against a white person. They hold all the power. You can't be sexist against a man. They hold all the power. Reverse racism and reverse sexism is not real. While it's true that whites can experience prejudice, and non-whites can have ignorant ideas about white people, this is not racism. Nolan is white. The people who run Roll20 are white. They're not being racist when they don't want to join with yet another group of white dudes. Jesus. Sigh. While I agree that it's ridiculous to be mad at NolanT for not sponsoring someone, regardless of the reason, please do keep the political viewpoints out of the thread. Thanks.

  • 08:22 AM - superstition quoted DM Magic in post The 5e Flaws list, my editorial changes (to correct flaws in the flaws)
    Personally, as I read through any rulebook put out by any company, I generally think as I read certain sections, "This could have been written better or been more clear." And I've been known to reword things for better clarity, just as the OP has done. That doesn't mean what I write would work for everyone; and it shouldn't. It should just work for me and my group. I commend the OP for the work they have done to make it more clear for them and their group. If a book states: "Elves cannot be taller than 5' 5"" then that works for anyone who is planning to follow the book, as written. It's not subjective. It's a simple fact. The book states X and X is what people must follow if they plan on doing it by the book. Just because people can houserule doesn't mean the rules, as written, shouldn't be good-quality in the first place. One may as well tell people to write their own book if they don't think the book, as written, is good enough. Some solution that is. The better solution is to make sure th...

  • 01:13 PM - jasper quoted DM Magic in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    ....Sexual Harassment goes all ways people. female to male, male to female, male to male, female to female, higher rank to lower, lower rank to higher. Sometimes what is someone’s joke it another harassment, aka depends on the receiver. Sometimes a joke is a harassment. I always take the report with a grain of salt and research both sides before I judge. Harassment does not need to meet the legal requirement to be corrected.......... Whataboutism and not all men, amirite? NO YOU ARE WRONG SIR! totally not cool and so far off the mark you are on the other side of the freaking world. Thanksgiving Morning Fort Ord California 1983. I am an Army Cook. On the Staff E-6 male Pushing paperwork in the back. On the floor say 8 people with me being the only MALE on the floor. E-5 Female AKA the BOSS, my superior, etc. Comes up with me with a "Male Sexual Organ" made out of a Turkey neck and other parts. LET ME REPEAT THAT FOR THE SLOW ONES.

  • 01:49 PM - Riley37 quoted DM Magic in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    Stuff like automatically having proficiency in weapons would be moved to backgrounds. Except when that proficiency is a gift from the deity who created the race, and will emerge no matter who raises the child. Celebrim runs a setting in which elves have a divinely granted ancestral bow proficiency. I like your point about genetics versus training, but insofar as one of the prolific participants has explained that elven bow use *falls on the other side of that divide* in his setting, maybe it would be clearer to use something else as the go-to example of a trained skill. Dwarven stonecunning, maybe? Or do dwarves have an innate connection with stone? Language? If a tielfling is raised by parents who don't speak Infernal, in a village where no one has ever spoken a word of Infernal... then at what age does the tiefling acquire the ability to write notes in Infernal? At adolescence, along with all the other changes of adolescence?

    Nailed it. Too much drama over a descreptive term.
  • 03:25 AM - Obryn quoted DM Magic in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    Thank you, Obryn. This topic is exquisitely frustrating for me and you said what I should have said. Eloquent and respectful. Well done. I'm trying a kinder, gentler approach. I am burnt out on piss & vinegar from an unrelated discussion about the merits of homeopathy. :D (That is, none. It has no merits at all.)
  • 03:22 AM - quoted DM Magic in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    Just spitballin' here, but the way I see it is, what is now called race would be called a heritage or ancestry. And that would only include biological goodies. This would remove half-orc and half-elf and other half races -- you would just have orc or elf or whatever ancestry. As for the biological goodies, people with orc-ancestry would have the stuff that comes with having orc blood (superior strength or whatever) and people with elf ancestry would have the stuff that comes with having elf blood (darkvision or whatever). Stuff like automatically having proficiency in weapons would be moved to backgrounds. Actually, I think that'd be pretty cool. Let people take X number of "ancestry" traits and it would literally define their biological ancestry. Perhaps they're just a mutt and thanks to that they've got darkvision, stonecunning and trance-sleep. Or something.
  • 01:35 AM - Celebrim quoted DM Magic in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    It's so hard to treat people with respect, amirite? Seeing as you have completely failed to do so at any point while you were involved in this thread, I'd guess the answer is that it must be. And at least, speaking for myself, that is my actually my experience. It's easy to be respectful with people who agree with you. It's hard to be respectful toward people who do not. Disagreeing in a way that doesn't cause legitimate offense and frustration is hard. I'm not actually convinced however that you are trying. If people were banned for using insulting and dismissive terminology, you wouldn't have made it this far. So, maybe a little bit of humility with regard to ones civility and manners would be in order, because from over here you don't really look the paragon thereof.

    Nope, not talking about fictional people. But at least this shows us that you don't understand the discussion or why it's being discussed. This is good! It means you have time to turn back and reread the thread. Hopefully when you come back out the other side, you'll be better equipped to join us in the 21st Century. Wow. You really don't get it then. My apologies. You're talking about changing fictional rules because of a word that seems to offend people that are offended by every little thing that has nothing to do with them. There, spelled out for you. Hopefully that didn't occupy too many of your brain cells.
  • 01:03 AM - LordNightwinter quoted DM Magic in post Do We Still Need "Race" in D&D?
    Changing the name of a spell doesn't affect PEOPLE. Race is HUGE because it always has been. You're talking about fictional people. The term doesn't need changing.
