    Zapp's minor shtick about ranged stuff is actually just him borrowing it from Zardinar. He saw Zard complain about ranged stuff, and as usual just added it to his list of complaints about 5e in his quest to gather all the complaints he sees about 5e.

    Ranged has been superior in every edition of D&D, so you'd be borrowing that complaint from, I dunno, Ernie Gygax or someone.
    Still excited about 4th Edition!

    I just want to know which posts get banned... but I'm too lazy to archive the thread for future checking...

    Oh, wait, no I'm not:

    (Wayback machine is only archiving page 1 for some reason so I saved the thread as a pdf too...)

    Appalling? Several people getting banned? Did something get removed before the archive?

    The worst statement there was someone generalizing that being proud of being straight and/or white automatically makes you a neo-nazi, as if expressing a love for Morris Dancing turns you into Hitler.

    A minority of people expressed concern that having exclusionary hiring policies, isn't a great idea, but hardly in a way that was appalling.

    Personally I wish them every success, be interesting to see what they produce. Having read #Feminism, I hope they can come up with something that is a bit more "game-like" than that, which seemed more like the sort of roleplay you would do in social studies classroom, than actual games. Still their other credits seem more like you would call traditional RPGs, and Misha Bushyager was only an editor on #Feminism.

    Nope. It (as of now) still remains unaltered from when I first read it.

    It's as Flexxor says, not enough people were immediately rah-rahing the 'diversity' of three black people getting together and hanging out the 'No Whitey" sign on their business.

    What a ludicrous statement. That's not at all what happened.

    Straight white males aren't an underrepresented demographic in the industry.

    I'd love to see what you thought was the worst offender in the thread.

    To me it's Morrus.

    That's exactly what happened. It's not why Mo got his panties in a twist and closed the thread, but it is what happened.

    Straight white males aren't an underrepresented demographic in the industry.
    So.... in a meritocracy the best are rising to the top. Where's the problem?

    Look at it like this, most gamers have little to no idea what the skin color of their 'favorite' rpg creators are likely to be, it's only the 'real fans', the ones that go to cons and try to follow blogs, etc* that would have any clue that their games are made by europeans, africans, south americans, asians, etc.

    So what's the fucking problem with there being an "overrepresentation"? Has anyone been held back from making games because they were the wrong color? Or sex? or anything?**



    * Or like I did, they just do a google search these days. But aside from the racists (on both sides) who cares?

    ** I do know of one person who has been castigated for his political views, but that nigger deserves it (and he kinda relishes it).

    I'd been playing Cyberpunk for years before I learned Mike Pondsmith was black. I mean this was before the internet was a big thing of course.

    Ditto. I only found out this year when that youtube video made the rounds about CP2077.

    Why am I not surprised by this?

    >in a meritocracy

    Yeah, "in a meritocracy" -- were such a thing to exist outside of Star Trek:TNG. In the real world (you've been there, right?), Women and minorities have been held down and back for fucking centuries by the dominant actors (straight white men) in American society. Yes, you can point to outliers -- freed blacks who owned slaves and businesses, American Indians who adopted Western ways and prospered as plantation-owning slave-keepers, women who went into business and became wealthy, but these "successes"were rare...but not because women or blacks or Indians are inferior, but because straight white men held the reigns of wealth and power, and they wrote the laws to benefit themselves, so women and blacks were often seen as (and legally were) chattel. Indians were seen as subhuman, animals, vermin, to be extirpated so that white men could exploit the resources of the land. This ignoring the farms, towns, ritual spaces and even cities that these people had built.
