    I think your example is still about how it's being used...

    5E What’s So Great About Medieval Europe?

    Can you give some examples of where this has happened in rpg's? I'm genuinely at a loss for where this has taken place... And remember it's not about using the cultures it's about how they are used and presented.

    5E What’s So Great About Medieval Europe?

    Ah ok so nothing to do with the actual points of the article itself. Got it.

    5E What’s So Great About Medieval Europe?

    I thought the article raised some good points about both the former representation of Chult (The primitive savages form a dark continent fantasy trope for African-esque places and people really needs to die in a fire) as well as acknowledging they've made some (giant IMO) steps but there are...

    How is emphasizing with a viewpoint and trying to understand a culture's general psychology... academic knowledge?

    5E What’s So Great About Medieval Europe?

    Can you tell me why you'd think that? Honestly it seems too vague a question...an rpg supplement on what? EDIT: To further elaborate on your question that's why I said multiple people of said culture... in the same way you would playtest a games mechanics with multiple people... no one person...

    5E What’s So Great About Medieval Europe?

    Ding, ding, ding. And this is why it's important to have (preferably multiple someones) from the culture you have chosen to use as the basis for your pastiche fantasy rpg writing for it and if that's truly not an option try to consult with some members of the culture in question before...

    WotC "D&D's Best Year Yet"

    Yeah I think there's a big difference between satisfaction and perfection. I think 5e is both popular and satisfying in what it achieves for the vast majority of people playing it... just not perfect, but is any game going to be out the box.

    4E Edition Experience - Did/Do You Play 4th Edition D&D? How Was/Is it?

    You know something I'm curious about is why many 4e fans disliked Essentials. Now I'll be upfront, Essentials is the only version of 4e I'll run now and the only books I kept from my collection of 4e so I am a fan of it but not really a fan of 4e in general. What I don't get is why fans of the...

    4E Edition Experience - Did/Do You Play 4th Edition D&D? How Was/Is it?

    And I guess my point is that often the inability to express the exact reason(s) one didn't like 4e are used as a way for it's fans to dismiss or outright invalidate one's claim of not enjoying the game.

    4E Edition Experience - Did/Do You Play 4th Edition D&D? How Was/Is it?

    Eh, I think determining whether you enjoy a game and being able to express why you don't enjoy a game are two different things. While many people may not be able to articulate why they didn't enjoy 4e, I don't really think they are mistaken about whether playing/running it for them was an...

    4E Are powers samey?

    I wasn't asking you to answer for anyone... I was wondering what your thoughts were on the 2 viewpoints.

    4E Are powers samey?

    I always find a disconnect with the sentiment expressed above... and the equally prevalent sentiment amongst fans of 4e and I believe the rulebooks themselves... that the overlay of fiction on 4e's mechanics can be easily changed as desired. They feel at odds to me. In other words if the...
