I like that BadEye ended up explaining that the 50% donations were only till they covered their costs, and then all additional profits were being donated.
Because many people have been saying on D&D Beyond threads that this somehow changes D&D. Maybe this isn't what this person specifically was doing, but a lot of people have said stuff along these lines.He was asked for his opinion, and gave it. Why the passive-aggressiveness?
D&D itself has been a political issue since the satanic panic of the 1980's... that it's now becoming normalized.Because many people have been saying on D&D Beyond threads that this somehow changes D&D.

Edit: I guess my point is that it's fine to share your opinion, but if the opinion is "This changes D&D or makes D&D political" is just wrong. It doesn't change anything, they're just donating to a cause. If you don't like the cause, don't buy the product. I like the cause, but personally would never spend money on digital dice.
Yes, but this is different. DnD Beyond is donating to Black Lives Matter, not the producers of the game. It's not politicizing the game or changing it.D&D itself has been a political issue since the satanic panic of the 1980's... that it's now becoming normalized.
Coronavirus response is a political issue, now. Everything's political. (DnD Beyond isn't a VTT, and it's not politicized by this. Supporting one cause does not change the game experience.)Support for BLM is a political issue, and tying something political to the official VTT is politicalizing that VTT and the game.
No comment. Discussing this idea is bound to be a bad idea.Just like how Morrus just politicised the board overall a bit by banning anti-BLM opinions from being expressed, but allowing pro-BLM ones.
That's kind of my point. Complaining about them supporting something you don't support and demanding them to support something else is very narrow-thinking, and is not going to change anything.It's bound to piss off a few skinheads and other bigots
Mod Note:Support for BLM is a political issue...
Everything IS political because it is the politicians who make the laws that reward or punish allied and opposed political factions. And that trickles down to everything about human society, especially when people with opposing views get together. It is how humans work. If I do not think like you, then I must be bad and wrong and need to be corrected, while I may think the same way about you. And then the politics get involved when some people see there is a path to profit and power by taking just the right viewpoint, even if it is not their personal view of things. I could say more or make comparisons, but that would be going across the "no politics" line.I agree. If this is political, everything is political. Human rights isn't political. Being scared of police and wanting change is not a political issue. It's a matter of right and wrong.
I looked on the D&D main page, but I saw nothing about this at dnd.wizards.com and then I looked at your link and saw you were just talking about DNDBeyond. You might want to correct that.
Yeah pretty cool that they took the time to make a dice animation asset that does soemthing irl dice can’t do, rather than just replicating irl dice.I don't use D&D Beyond, but I'd love to see something like this offered on Roll20. I'd be the envy of all my virtual players if I busted out these fancy dice when everyone else is stuck with the same 32 flat colors.
I donated anyway; I don't need to get something in return for helping my fellow humans. But still: come on Roll20...get with the times. ;-)
