    Yes, I understand it now- and I don't understand why it is "unfortunate" to me. I now understands that for english speakers race means other thing, and why using the term towards orcs is a bad thing, while using the translation in my language is an exact term. Now that I understand it, I can move on with my life and not cringe every time someone use the term "race" towards other humans in english. I would probably still won't use it, because of the way I'm used to refer other nationalities, but I don't care anymore.

    So yeah, I think I have more or less finished...

    As I've mentioned in the quoted post, in my country english is not the native language. We seem to use the term "race" in a radically different way than how you do. In here, when you use the translated term for a "race", it refers to a species, subspecies or a breed. That is, to a different type of being. Using the translated word for "race" towards humans would imply that they are different from humans, and as such, doing so will be racist. In my language, if you are to refer to a different group/tribe/clan/nation/etc of people, you should use the words which are...

    As we are not English speakers, then perhaps some of the context of the word "race" in english is lost to us. We apparently don't use the word "race" the way that english speakers do- for us, "race" is the common word for "species"- that is, it has the same meaning. Language differences does matter, apparently. In my language, the translation of the word "race" is a valid use as a replacement for for translation of the word "species", so as long as it is used in context (that is, referring to other types of beings and not ethnic groups)...

    Ok, so like, I really, really, really did not wanted to touch that subject with a ten foot stick, but even I have my limits.

    Look, I don't know where you all come from (not specifically you, Charlaquin. I quot you just because it is the last mention of the subject, so nothing personal, I'm talking in general)- but where I live, calling other ethnic groups of people races IS racist. In school, we are taught again, and again, and again that the concept of "race" does not apply to humans, because biologically speaking we are all the same race. Race is a biological term, that...

    So on the original subject of this thread (which lasted more or less for one page before it devolved into "racism and etc." thread, more or less), I think that my main issue with it is the checklist. I mean, I do recognize that every person has things they would not like to feature in a game, but playing an RPG is a social gathering. Having each person signing a contract of what cause them feel bad during a game and what doesn't feels, well, forced. It feels like going out with friends, but beforehand we all sign a paper where we proclaim on which subjects we should avoid talking, but...

    Wait.. wasn't it spoiled somewhere that the illicit Exigent were called the "Sovereigns"? Am I imagining things?

    replied to The D&D thread
    So during today's session, in good timing with the date, the party was invited to see a circus show, where the main event was the premiere of a new, original play produced by one of the circus's men called "the King in Yellow". As almost all of my players don't really know their Lovecraft they had no idea what they were getting themselves into, except of one player which got almost every reference and knew how fucked up things are going to go. I've actually wrote some parts of the play and read them for the players, and I ruled that any player who fails an Intelligence saving throw actually...

    Ammm I do have research collaborators in the US. Well, if they nagged me endlessly about sending them a lost key, I can neg them to send me Halloween special, perfectly the same but different colour oreos :P...

    They don't sell those where I live (probably because we don't celebrate Halloween.. the one holiday I would have wanted to celebrate -_-), so after that movie I'm going to plan especially to fly abroad on Halloween just so I could get them :P

    I also finally feel a bit better right now. That movie touched all of the broken pieces inside of me, and I was very on edge for the last three days. It brought up too many memories which I prefer to forget. Still, very sweet move which I don't regret watching, and replayed my favorite scenes of it for like an hour after it.

    So today I've watched the movie "Love, Simon". Perhaps a bit in late, but better late than never, right? While some parts of the movie were a bit... triggering, so the speak, the end was indeed heart warming. A sting of jealousy, perhaps, but after that every move about a gay person that I saw in the LGBT cell in my university was about a tragedy of some sort, having an happy ending was quit refreshing.

  • I've played mostly Hunter, even though in general I haven't played a lot of CofD (there was a loooooong break in playing RPG, as I had to find new friends which are still interested in playing). Still, I do love writing things for CofD- again, especially material for Hunter, but Vampire also has a warm place in my heart...

    That reminds me I should finish my STV material. If you'll excuse me... :P
