    General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    I am a member of the same church as the Hickmans. The parallel is clear. Changing a few aspect of the original story (the plates being platinum, not gold, the sex of the person who restored the religion, and the plates including the evil religion) is not enough to make it not a clear allegory.

    And in the Bible, Jesus wasn't a speaking lion murdered by an ice-queen. Obviously C. S. Lewis and other authors who based parts or plots of their books off of parts of their religious beliefs make some changes to the story that they "borrow" from.

    D&D and the rising pandemic

    Sometimes, less is more, right? :rolleyes: I can't believe that homeopathy is still a thing.

    I think you're misunderstanding me. I suggest you go back about 10 pages and read my posts to get a better understanding of what I was talking about. You seem to agree with me, but don't understand what I was referring to. I agree that it sounds like propaganda, and is dumb that in the lore...

    No, it's not, because you choose to roleplay your character that way using your player agency. Kender aren't supposed to be able to do that.

    Which is why I would like Kender to be open to doing either version of roleplay.

    But restricting the playstyle of a whole race doesn't always enhance the fun for the player or group that has a Kender character.

    That's a completely different situation. Vampires are undead who need blood to survive and be a powerful undead, while paladins choose to make an oath to get their powers. Kender get no benefit for stealing from others, except for a cheap comedic effect forced on by their race.

    I'm not sure if you're meaning to refute my post. A kender character stealing from another character could ruin the game for another person. It's restrictive, and IMO it's dumb, to restrict kender by race to kleptomania.

    General Dragonlance's Margaret Weis & Tracy Hickman Are Suing WotC for Breach of Contract

    No. I completely, utterly disagree. Roleplay restrictions are restrictive, and restrictions are not fun or good for the game unless it is for a mechanical/balance reason (barbarian rage blocking spellcasting). The only thing roleplay restrictions "add" to the game is restrictions. Restricting...

    General "Hot" take: Aesthetically-pleasing rules are highly overvalued

    Same as the others. I tried reading it a couple of times, but failed to see what point you were trying to make.

    But to another player, it might be more fun for them to not be restricted in a roleplay-way by being a Kender. A Kender naturally being a thief is fine as long as they're not stuck to being that way.
