Thread: GMs are going to literally rewrite game lore and mechanics to remove racism

    Wyrom:
    >>I'm just curious, is anyone going to receive an apology for one of your GMs flat out accusing people of being racist and heavily implying anyone who disagrees with this decision is racist and therefore their money is no good here?

    Yes, while I don't like generalized statements that don't feel sincere, I've been reaching out to several people over the last 2 hours. I try not to sweep anything under the rug.
    So I guess people are going to receive personal apologies.

    Also the thread on the officials is now locked.

    Are settings just not allowed to be uncomfortable to certain demographics to risk 'setting them off'? Because that's how this feels.

    @Tgo01 I get that we're mostly just being snarky in this thread - but I am curious as to whether you see why they'd want to clean that section of the docs up.

    It's kind of silly. Like is this all just going to be insinuated now?

    "Krovlin would...be romantic with humans...without the humans...being fully on board...then 9 months later Half-Krolvins were created!"

    Or is the entire history going to be rewritten to remove all mentions of rape entirely because that's too much realism for us?

    I assume by "clean up" you mean make more PG and not that you think the writing is sloppy or something.

    In which case no. Yes, Elanthia is full of dangerous and evil beings and those dangerous and evil beings do dangerous and evil things.

    What is there to gain from all of this whitewashing?

    Are we comfortable with the lore talking about armies fighting one another and thousands dying?

    What about gods that delight in tormenting the inhabitants of Elanthia?

    Lore focusing on witchcraft, critters worshiping dark gods to smite their foes, people going around killing and butchering animals for their furs to make money, bandits who murder you and loot your corpse, entire species of "lesser" critters being nearly wiped out so a "higher" species can build their town in the area, evil liches, backstabbing, assassination, horrible diseases; curses; and other maladies, I could go on and on.

    But rape? Nope. Not in MY GS.

    Krolvins fucking halflings to death is gross they can delete that shit as far as I'm concerned, I wonder if the GM that wrote it is still on staff?

    Uncomfortable subject matter is there. If you have the talent for writing and a competency to not go overboard, you can do a lot with that subject matter.

    It's not quite fucking halflings to death, it was more like they got pregnant and the pregnancy killed them.

    Still fucked up sure.
