    D&D 5E 50th Anniversary and beyond

    (I don't know why people got so up in arms about Tasha's and eschewing fixed racial ability scores. If adventurers truly are outliers in basically every respect I don't see why they have to be burdened by whatever the average is for their race) I am hoping that there will be significantly more...

    That's not how organizational decisions are made. In any organization whether it be corporate or academic you cannot deal with every single possible issue on a case by case basis. That's the whole point of having rules/principles.

    "My opinion as a mod is law because I am a mod". I'm not interested in your opinion unless you can argue for it and ground it in reason.

    Will you accept that line of reasoning when the decision in question is offensive to you?

    What happens when two peoples "lived experiences" contradict each other? Or are mutually exclusive? Lived experiences may be valid, in that they exist and are real, but by the very nature of their subjectivity they have limited, if any, utility when it comes to applying broad policy-like...

    Yes, but that would only include phylactery and they would need to omit any reason why. If there IS a reason why, then that reason can be applied to any other incident. It's better to remove terms without justification, than give a justification and then be bound to all possible instantiations...

    You can if you've defined pizza such that it precludes pineapple.

    A paradigmatic example of what I've been saying this entire time that some people don't seem to understand.

    I'm not trying to be rude, but I'm SUPER flabbergasted you've asked me that when I've pointed out areas of inconsistency multiple times now. Please re-read my post(s). If phylactery has to go because it's religious adjacent, then all religious adjacent material needs to also go. 1.) If...

    Oh, then you and I will wait with baited breath for when they remove all this christian and islamic themed elements from their books. Would you like to make a bet on how many years we'll wait? As to your second question: I would accept the fact that it's impossible to please everyone all the...

    Then they would do even "better-er" by applying this principal to the rest of their products and writing. No?

    There isn't going to be a way for you to formulate this rebuttal that I won't be able to come up with an analogous scenario/thought experiment/hypothetical that will cause them to violate their principle. Either: a.) Enforce the principle in all situations b.) Do not enforce the principle in...

    I'll make a personal note that you don't have any interest in dealing with the truth or falsity of claims or propositions. As far as you're concerned, 2+3=4 is completely legitimate arithmetic. (Then you're going to say that opinions are subjective where mathematics is objective, but you're just...

    They are choosing to [do a thing] for [a reason]. That reason applies to [other things]. Therefor, to be logically consistent, they need to apply that standard in all cases, not just apply it selectively.

    I'm skeptical that you can derive a non-trivial or non-question begging difference. If you're not willing to justify your claims, don't make them. The point of my post was to present a similarly formed situation and see if you would conform to the logic/rationale you'd already put forth or if...

    I'm really only concerned with truth values. Either the things I say are true or false. What role does empathy play in determining the truth of a proposition?

    Pathfinder 2E Paizo drops use of the word phylactery

    I'm pretty firmly deontological so the "who" and the "relative power dynamic" are completely irrelevant to my analysis. A moral rule either holds in all cases, or none. So if phylactery = bad because religious reason then -> religious-adjacent-thing = bad because religion reason no matter what...

    If you support the renaming of this component of a Lich on the basis that it intersects with a real world religion, how do you justify not doing the same thing here? Are these not relevantly similar situations? If you don't support the renaming of this component of a Lich then you're not being...
