I guess overall I just don't get what the actual product is. If you have a stat system and all the mechanical stuff, you can just make up whatever setting you want?
In practice it's the opposite. The mechanical shite barely matters, having a consistent setting everyone agrees on the details on is what actually makes for a workable game.

What you have to understand is the people writing and buying the stuff VORP posts aren't active members of the hobby. They are the outsiders looking in, hoping in vain their latest purchase will buy them in to a social activity they will never be welcome at.

True-and-honest gamers are perfectly willing to forgive a terrible system if the setting is rad enough and the book doesn't demand you being a "good person" every chapter.
And the greater freedom allowed in the land of tabletop RPGs is exactly why these people actually prefer stuff based on Apocalypse World, the Newspeak of RPGs. It's hard being "problematic" if the classes are restrictive to the point of having built-in character arcs.

It's simply ludicrous to try and set such strict rules for games that play out 90% in one's imagination (or at least even more so than board games).
Not sure if that's just me but back when I did play PnP I always modified rules and setting details that didn't seem fun to me.
Back then this was encouraged, even. So the notion of a rule book that says don't do this, don't do that. Stupid.
Yes it's called rules but it's just guidelines really. Why would you play such a game if it was too much like work, or like having endless retarded twitter arguments?

Unless there's official tournaments and such that would be anal about rules but somehow I doubt it. Otherwise you'll play it with close friends only because it's a pretty embarrassing hobby that I always assumed people quit when they are in their mid teens.
It's a trap!

That's why pretty much every based game has a paragraph talking about a variation of "Rule Zero" (aka "if you don't like anything in this book, just change it") or "The Golden Rule" (aka "Have fun"). That's because adults know it's not as much your game as it is your customers'.

Meanwhile these insecure SJW-types are paranoid about their work being used for evil, so they write in all sorts of rules and shit about what you are not allowed to ever do.

"Okay, so this games' main bad guys are LITERAL NAZIS, so you better not give them backstories, names, faces, or really dialogue. Just make vague statements about them making incredibly racist comments or something. DO NOT MAKE THEM RELATABLE!"

Ermahgerd, one Nationalist hoodie worn on a spanish Warhamster event, and jews everywhere lose their fricking minds. Disregard the fact that libtard faggots have no power in Spain I like that they are seething the most that said player was awarded points for his opponents conceding, which is a ground rule in tournaments :geek:

>getting triggered by a hoodie when people have made literal Nazi Guard armies

:roll:

And in other news: Dried-up Scimitar Dykes has an expansion.
Image

Can't find a good picture of the full cover, but it's just a bunch of bimbos standing around, plus an instance of... slavery :o ?!

What the fuck is going on with that fat rock chick on the left? Is that her hair? How is that even attached to her head?
And of course the native lizard lesbian is the only one in bondage :roll:
Now, this is obviously a reference to the classic - and even iconic - '70s tabletop RPG book Players Handbook for AD&D 1e.
Image

A number of problems with that:
  • "Advanced Lovers & Lesbians" makes a lot more sense if the core book was called "Lovers & Lesbians", which it isn't
  • What the hell is up with that ampersand? Is that like a lesbian chick making out with with a mermaid whose upper body is just a bunch of tentacles? Never thought I would ever complain about such an arrangement
  • The Players Handbook cover is probably one of the most widely parodied and referenced cover out there, but this is just half-assed. The characters look like they're just standing or even floating around, and the fat statue isn't even centered (plus no one is trying to pry out her gem eyes)
  • The title and cover might make one naturally assume this book is about putting a lesbian spin on klessik fantasy RPG tropes, but it's literally just a grab bag of all the random classes and mini-settings they've promised in their milestones for the core book's Kickstarter
  • Speaking of the Kickstarter, why this second one? The contents of this expansion are milestones from the last one. Are you honestly telling me you needed another 15k (with a final amount of 62k, no less) after the core book's Kickstarter made around 15 times what you asked for (19k vs 298k)?
Though I must give it to them. They have come up with the most glorious tabletop RPG setting since Rifts. Behold:
SpoilerShow
Gaylords by Lucian Kahn. Abandon all subtlety, restraint, and good taste, Gaylords is a fantasy setting about gay male warlords of rival Fagtions. Embrace the high camp of the Wilde Flamingo Regimes in a comedic and exceptionally homosexual pairing of melodrama and farce, rooted in self-parody.
Also this is advertised as the system's "first expansion", but I have a hunch it'll be their last. All their obligations from the previous milestones have been fulfilled, and there's only so much you can do with "What if lesbians?!".
I bet they will focus their efforts on something even more insufferable next, which will hopefully be the Fate Decolonization Toolkit. Man, if there ever was a PDF I would just die to pirate, it's that one :lol:

It's not slavery, it's femmedomme, and also empowering, shitlord!

>Abandon all good taste

I thought that was the premise of Unsatisfied Cutlass Carpetmunchers :lol:

Still the superior choice for lesbian action. Those shallow narrative systems can never match its attention to detail.
