Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Sigmar's Justice & Peace Warriors The teaching of Sigmar's Justice & Peace Warriors (or SJPW) comes from the teachings of a heretical sect that originated in the cursed city of Mordheim in the mid-1990s. It's leader, Sister Sigrid Knauer, was a firebrand preacher whose heresies were denounced by mos...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Yeah, that could work. I’m pretty sure the Cult of Solkan were mainly intended as a send-up of the lunatic fringe of the Christian Right, but they’d work just as well as Progressives. Claus Glinka’s moral crusade from the Genevieve novels could be another good option. There's a rather interesting G...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Again, Herr Arnulfe, you're using fairly aggressive language to suggest that leftists (which I assume you identify with) have immutable characteristics that make them superior. In this case it is moral superiority, and a feeling of moral superiority, as we know, leads to justification of some pretty...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Labelling leftists as more sensitive sounds like the kind of generalization and discrimination that social justice supposedly stands against.

The Vistani/Strigany/Gypsy cliche is a stereotype.
Leftists are sensitive and make better artists is a stereotype.

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Yes, I've been following the D&D debate a little and have to admit I was surprised Ravenloft getting a rewrite (that ironically has put me off buying the deluxe boxed set they've released). I was surprised that "classic" D&D settings are now considered racist, I only own 1 D&D 5e book (the PHB) as I...

Nope, but if I'm lumped in with him, alt-left it is.

Milo Yianopolis describes himself almost verbatim as you did, and he identifies as alt-right. I actually assumed you were trying to channel Milo above.

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

In a show of solidarity many halfling farmers are refusing to use the pitchfork as part of their farming routines. Seeking less offensive alternatives that are culturally sensitive the halflings have even gone to the extent of bringing in a wizard from the coast as a sensitivity specialist before th...

I don't identify as right-wing though. More anarcho-snarky with liberal tendencies.

Brilliant! Mind if I compile this and post it to the WFRP Gamemasters group on FB as an example of right wing social commentary? With proper credit of course.

I was dealing with a far larger issue... GW scale creep on their miniatures. 28mm shouldn't be a problem for a cake.

Halfling poet Davfire Radclin, who became famous as a child by reciting Jakey Rolling's poetry has turned on him, publicly denouncing him as a narrow-minded bigot at the start of the annual Mootland Games.

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

If anything that kind of humorous scenario hook can make some lovely 2020 commentary on the controversies facing cis-female athletes. Just the kind of "thought provoking" content I'm sure everyone will welcome. "'Arry might be 7 ft. tall and built like a small watch tower, but we found him as a calf...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

Heroes in the sense you can have them as a model, but certainly not in the Pure of Heart Hero. The fiction books etc. have always portrayed them as the necessary evil etc.

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I've been playing a lot of Vermintide in lockdown and I would describe the Witch Hunter character as definitely the anti-hero, and he gets a fair amount of disdain off the other PCs (often in my view unfairly). He also seems to think he's the main character/leader, which he isn't. :D I actually like...

Re: WFRP Social Justice & Representation

I suppose the last bit is good if you want to make the point that transgender rights are wrong and ridiculous. But that sounds an awful lot like "involving modern gender politics" to me. Well, it is a thread about that Theo. But that is what those individual GMs and writers add to the setting, and ...

I'm a big fan of playing games for the sake of it and keeping my political inclinations out of it (which is easy, I have disdain for all spectrums of the UK political spectrum). I'm not particularly interested in involving modern gender politics in my game, as it's not something that really interest...
