    Wondering if you’re trans is usually a pretty good flag that /something/ is going on with their identity. The most you can do is offer support, and let them know that you’re still them for them whatever they wind up feeling comfortable with....

  • I would adore a Shard where we go back to reincarnated monsters remembering their true selves.

    Notably, Mummy treats Twilight as a place, rather than a state of being.

    There’s been one or two references to somehow going into a realm inside the Gauntlet.

  • If you want crossover, you’re honestly better off with another system entirely.

    Storyteller’s Guide: Shards

    The Demon STG is one of the finest books to release in the last few years, and part of why I adored it so much was the setting Shards in the back. I know the book for Beast is a decent ways out still, but is there any chance we’ll see more of these? What Sharda would you like to see?

  • Regardless of intent or motivation, a character who exists to ruin people by outing them - even if those people are monstrous! - is awful and offfensive.

  • Okay, you said precisely none of that, you just said they feed off closeted homosexuals. Feel free to act defensive, but you could also just apologize and say the base concept was in poor taste....

    I personally felt that VtM had already established the WoD as a world with true Abrahamic mythology, so Demon didn't upset me in the least in that regard. The only part of it I do wrinkle my nose at is the crossover-focused stuff where Demons are a major plot of the setting and metaplot, but as it stands, urban fantasy game where you play as fallen angels in what just might feel like the end of days is probably the coolest pitch I can think of. I adore Demon top to bottom, and I think an eventual X20 book that focuses less on being a keystone of the metaplot and more on being a standalone game...

  • I can't speak to M20, but I know there's a pretty nasty tendency to take trans characters and extrapolate their identities into some kind of transgressive magical form, arguing that their gender is inherently liminal and magical because it's outside the norm.

    Also, I know older Ascension material has been... less than great about trans folks. Not so fond memories of the Chinese infernalists who live as women....

    I hate Lamentations of the Flame Princess so much.

    We get it, you like old-school D&D and saying fuck a lot.

    As the ideological polar opposite to the post above, I can’t begin to articulate how much I adore the Powered by the Apocalypse movement in games. They hit the perfect mechanical point for me, where the rules rarely come into play save for when it’s interesting and dramatic, leaving most of the time aside for collaborative improvisation. It empowers players to take a lot of power over the narrative and makes the role of GM incredibly easy, focused on responses to players rather than pre-planning and railroading. Apocalypse World itself is a treat, but games like Monsterhearts, Night Witches,...

    Modern RPG Safety and Wraith20

    The hobby has come a long, long way since Wraith was originally published, and in many ways the current storygame renaissance seems more welcome to a moody, collaborative game about ghosts and their baggage than the Wild West of the 90s. One of the things we’ve thankfully come a long way on is explicitly providing tools to keep players safe: session zeroes, discussion of lines and veils, the X card... Wraith perhaps suffered because it is a game strongly about personal suffering, with ready parallels to mental health, addiction, abuse, and suicide in the fiction (or sometimes, not metaphors...
