    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    Dungeons and Dragons: Fixing our monsters one Edition at a time. :LOL:

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    I agree with everything! My concern, and conundrum, is what happens if players complain about the racism displayed in the Witcher, because it reminds them of the oppression they deal with in real life and makes them depressed or uncomfortable, and ask for a change? What should happen then...

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    Honestly ... I'm conflicted. I just read Elfcrusher's aarakocra example, and the Witcher games came to mind. In case you're not familiar with the Witcher books / video games, demihumans there are portrayed as 2nd class citizens and victims of racism. This isn't meant as a low poke on...

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    In your opinion, should all creatures be re-written like the orcs and drow? Even Gnolls? Or only races which are possible candidates for PCs?

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    First of all, thank you for providing data (on the other poster's behalf), really appreciate it. Now let's nitpick those rules: First of all, there is absolutely no mention of good characters being penalized for granting mercy to evil humanoids who surrender - as I expected. Yes, but we're...

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    I have no intention of apologizing to you, because I was neither rude, nor did I say something wrong. Like I said, I've only played BECMI, 3rd and 5th. Also had read the rules of 4th a little bit. I have no experience with AD&D. But please, by all means, point me to the rules in AD&D which...

    D&D 5E Heroes' Feast - D&D Cookbook

    I was about to make a thread about this! I have a thing for recipes and food in RPGs ever since I played Legaia II on my PlayStation 2, and it was revitalized with Final Fantasy XV. I want to make a house rule where these courses will give temporary buffs to the characters, but they'll also...

    I've only played WarCraft II. Back then, there was nothing, absolutely nothing redeemable about the Horde. Chaotic Evil to the core.

    D&D 5E WotC's Jeremy Crawford on D&D Races Going Forward

    If you consider these two threads 'dumpster fires', I advise you to never, EVER set foot in the GameFaqs forums.

    Dear God - no! I like my fluff!

    By 'your' and 'you' I meant the leaders the Americans had back then, using propaganda to the American people back then.

    Weren't we talking about how creature descriptions ring racist bells to some people? How does it not got anything to do with the topic?

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    That's literally how BECMI edition rolled, back in the day. There were no moral conundrums. It was all about going to place X and kill monster Y.

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    Honestly? Not for me. I have played BECMI, a little of 3rd Ed, and 5th Ed. Both as a player and as a DM. I have never read somewhere in the rules that orcs were an inferior or stupid race. They were always labeled as a menace to humanoid societies (humans, dwarves and elves). I didn't live in...

    D&D General WotC’s Official Announcement About Diversity, Races, and D&D

    I don't know how old you are, but that was the message I got when I played the BECMI D&D (Black Box) version, 25 years ago.
