Back in the day, degenerate cancer used to be confined to White Wolf games — namely World of Darkness.
Believe it or not, I used to GM a massive roleplaying chat of New World of Darkness. The shit I saw people roleplaying made me want to vomit.
We had to ban someone because they were going around in Mage using the different magic to turn other player characters into cats, and then using life magic to “force ejaculation”.
I mean what the hell? I was just trying to run a game of secret societies and taking down monsters and people do this weird, creepy, depraved sexual shit with it.
I didn’t see much of that in other RPGs. Deadlands, D&D, L5R, Pathfinder, Star Wars… the stuff i generally played was safe from that after my White Wolf experience (I never went back to that game). But then when you look into Vampire with their different powers too, it’s all about creepy weird shit. I don’t know how I overlooked it in the source material. Once you see it though, you can’t unsee it.
But now, Monte Cooke games has standardized SJW triggered culture, making a checklist of all sorts of depraved shit so that a GM can know what triggers you or not. It’s here:
A consent checklist? I was just here to throw a magic missile at some kobolds. What the hell is this stuff?
Explicit sex? Racism? Aren’t we all racist against elves? What the shit is this shit?
If you need something like this to play a game, not only are you the biggest depraved pussy on the planet, but if a GM is doing some of the creepier stuff in this, then that person likely is a mentally-deranged sociopath who you should be RUNNING AWAY from.
Bottom line is, if someone pulls out this checklist at a gaming table unironcially, run FAR FAR away.
Evil things happen, and we need good people to fight them. That’s why I wrote Justified: Saga of the Nano Templar. It’s about standing up for objective truth, standing against depravity and evil, doing right for God and your fellow brothers. Read it this weekend. It’s much better than these “popular” RPGs.
