I don't blame too much Hasbro because they are very prudent and they want to avoid a moral panic, but we need a clear criteria about modern sensibilities, because if it's the one I am suspecting, then more censorship will be asked later. They are not going to stop until somebody started to say their point of view is being too radical. Before it was about the hadozee, the races, the orcs and drows, now about DS and in the future it will be about other thing. If we don't stop this madness they are going to destroy the brand in the same way than Disney or DC franchises.
And what if the right path is to promote the good sense and the respect for the human dignity, even when in the fiction the evil characters are showed doing horrible actions?
Please, let's recover the good sense. My country suffered a civil war in the 30's but lots of Spanish movies were about the civil war. If there aren't more movies it is because the Spanish audience is sick with too many one, and always with the same speech about good and evil factions. And we are talking about a happening for the generation of my grandparents.
Maybe somebody can feel unconfortable with the slavery in DS, but maybe they are a very little group. Are they enough reason for a self-censorship? I can feel unconfortable with the trope of sinnister minister. Should the "evil preachers" be banned in Ravenloft? or wouldn't be enough with a disclaimer section explaining the trope of the sinnister minister or femme fatale shouldn't fall in the abuse?
What if Hasbro talks with a NGO about defense of the human rights, and then an adventure about slavery is published and whose profits will go to a charitable cause. Would be this wrong?
D&D is for +12y, at least the DM should be +12y because the rules are too complex for younger players. When I was a child I could watch old movies about adventures in the jungle with cannibals or slavery in the Roman empire. Some children could watch Conan the barbarian even when this is for "mature audiences". Once it was released in the TV for the day, in the "family hours". I have met children who watched "Blade" movie before than me, and they told me the plot. In the 1987 movie "the monster squad" the main character was a child who have watche a lot of horror movies, and this was allowed by his father, a police. In a scene both were watched together a horror movie.
I wonder if the "modern sensibilities" really are following sensible criterias.
