    How to avoid RPG dumpster fires like the Far Verona controversy

    No we didn't agree. Something can be libelous without meeting the high standards of what can be proven in court.

    Written defamation of character? It would be if he put it on the front page.

    How to avoid RPG dumpster fires like the Far Verona controversy

    No, that's the exact opposite of what I did. What I actually argued is that things could in fact be a very big deal, even if no one was actually triggered in a clinical sense. Your characterization of what I wrote is libelous.

    How to avoid RPG dumpster fires like the Far Verona controversy

    Guys creeping on pretty girls? Pretty common. Actually incorporating sexual violence into a game? I would hope that it is rare, but there are a lot of high profile incidents.

    How to avoid RPG dumpster fires like the Far Verona controversy

    I have watched her statement. And "hit her VERY hard" is not the same as being triggered. If a friend who I trusted got creepy with me and ruined a game I was enjoying, it would "hit me VERY hard". It would not "trigger" me. If my boss hit on me or sexually harassed me at work, it would...

    @Hussar : What would I ever do without you to demonstrate?

    How to avoid RPG dumpster fires like the Far Verona controversy

    I really have no desire to fight, but I think the whole "triggered" argument is mostly a strawman. Mostly, because sure, it does actually happen that some one has some sort of PTSD and can in fact be triggered in the clinical sense, but that mostly that word is appropriated to describe a wide...

    D&D 2E Edition Experience - Did/Do you Play AD&D 2E? How Was/Is It?

    You don't really have an option that captures my experience. I have both never played and at the same time have played 2e AD&D. That's because the groups I was in persisted in playing 1e AD&D, but treated 2e AD&D as a sort of supplemental rules set of optional rules that we could pick and...

    Game Design Masterclass: Alien

    I know this isn't a review thread, but I have a friend that wants to run this game and I've resisted for two reasons: a) I haven't had good experiences with sci-fi games from a social perspective. Can and do characters cooperate and is there anything going on other than combat? b) More...

    How to avoid RPG dumpster fires like the Far Verona controversy

    I don't deny that it might be possible to "trigger" someone at some point. But then again, I don't disagree that the real and more serious problem is that it was crass and distasteful. And so far as I can tell, no one was actually "triggered" by this incident - they found it crass and...

    How to avoid RPG dumpster fires like the Far Verona controversy

    Yeah, this does not seem to be an area you'd want to go in to without explicitly discussing this sort of thing with your players. And, honestly I think the biggest problem that the GM had wasn't even that, but his attitude to the scene wasn't, "I'm taking this game to a very dark place and very...

    D&D General Differences Between D&D Boards

    Everyone believes that anyone who doesn't believe something pretty close to what they do is an extremist. Everyone likewise believes that there own extremism is always well justified.

    D&D General Differences Between D&D Boards

    Wow. I think maybe 12 players is the most I've ever seen a GM try to handle at once. Takes a lot of skill to keep that many players entertained. I'll echo and reinforce what ad_hoc said earlier that how many people you have playing together is probably the biggest determinate on what sort of...

    On Behavioral Realism

    Would you like to place a bet of some sort on that? I believe I can prove to you that there is at least one RPG that has rules for everything. Small bet perhaps. I get upvoted if you agree that I won. I'll upvote you if you think I haven't.
