    I think the most graphic was the elves forced into the bed of a Krolvin.

    There is a great skit by D Chappelle where he says N***** and C*** that is actually a great social commentary. I thought of posting the actual words, but I think it's important people don't forget the past and also important not to relish in them either. I don't censor myself lightly, they are terrible, hurtful, historically horrifying words - but erasing the past doesn't make them go away. People should remember what has happened, the statues, the history, the reasons people fought and died.

    It's like after 911 when sports died, entertainment stopped and comedians couldn't tell a joke about muslims. Then the world started again, and we found it all again, but with more respect and more perspective about each other.

    It's true about games as well. Don't forget where we came from, remember it and be better. Don't try to erase the past.

    As an ethnic non-white male living in the South, I can appreciate that Simutronics wants to voice their opinion on their personal beliefs on the matters at hand.

    But as a player to the game, who spends most free time playing, I am not a fan of the idea that the developers would attempt to transition their beliefs to our fantasy game - changing lore to what general society would consider more palatable. This is a little much for me.

    While I never followed the lore closely, I respect and can wrap my head around the fantasy historical wars, conflicts between humanoids and origin stories of the humanoids playable characters. I don't think any of this makes me a racist.

    Sir, you're a dog with a suit on and a man purse. There's already a lot of confusion going on with just that.

    Thread, TL/DR:

    They looked at the old lore and said, some of this is pretty cringe-worthy... which is absolutely true. It would have cost nothing to let them revise some of that outdated scrub edge-lord shit, but people brought up race and kept making parallels that weren't there and suddenly everyone lost their minds. It got blown out of proportion from the mention of a few minor changes to everyone assuming the whole fuckin' world was going to come down -- which, let's face it, is the normal reaction in Gemstone to the mention of changing anything. And then some asshat kept demanding that people donate money instead of having a chill discussion, but sure... why fucking not? I more or less said my piece, I'm done with it.

    Also, Dreaven is a racist and a dog in a suit. And here we are.

    Thadston says, "Stand down Baron, and your men. Or I swear to Koar, Liabo, Lornon, Cruxophim, I will release your daughter and watch her die right here."
    Stormyrain evenly asks, "Did you just make Cruxophim a god?"

    I actually like this sentiment, especially the part about doing better. I don't mind if some shit goes, but it's good to remember the past.
