Topic: Which communism is more interesting to role-play.
Replies: 1

Kind of depends what kind of roleplay experience you want to go for. I wouldn't recommend using North Korea as an example, because they're rather isolationist and your nation wouldn't have much incentive to interact with anyone. After all, you'd still want to roleplay with other nations? China, on t...

Sounds interesting. Do you plan on having some mechanics (resource management, etc.) involved? That is the plan, yes, although I’m having a difficult time with design. I want things to feel tense and unpredictable, but I also want the mechanics to be simple, elegant, and not too reliant on luck/dic...

Okay. So I played a game recently (one of those really old flash games that used to be popular on Newgrounds et al back in the days), and the setting seemed pretty interesting for an RP, with some changes. The concept is this: you run or help run a space station or outpost in the medium-future. Som...

On the flip-side, boycotting a company because it simply won't fire an employee whose views have no impact on their products is not a mentality we should encourage. That's a point we'll have to agree to disagree on. I very much support boycotting companies that don't fire racists, transphobes, homo...

If companies were no longer permitted to fire Employees for political reasons, there would be no reason to pressure companies to do so. The reasoning behind that "political reasons" is the fact that a person becomes a source of loss -rather than revenue- to the company. By that logic, you...

I don't think people's primary issue is with employers terminating employments because of cancel culture. It's with the cancel culture. It's the fact that people go to great lengths to make these people "unprofitable". Even if they manage to exonerate themselves, people struck by cancel c...

I think JK is ideal. Cancel culture is bad. But even if they have really vile view points ? Yes even if they have really vile viewpoints.

I'm not sure JK Rowling is a good figurehead for this, but I agree with the underlying sentiment. Cancel culture is a big overcorrection, and I'm hoping people aren't now trying to overcorrect again and spread the notion that one can say whatever they want without social consequences, or that people...

It all varies heavily on a case-by-case basis. As someone working in IT I'm 100% capable of WFH and will be doing so until at least the end of August. It's nice and dandy if you have a goal to focus on and know how to do it, but whenever something comes up which I need someone else's help with (e.g....

The colder weather out at sea justified Ulric's expenses, though he paid it no mind. Lost in thought once more, he stood stoically on deck, mindlessly pinching and twisting one end of his mustache with one hand and tapping the weather wooden surface of meticulously carved railings with the other.

The thing with intentionally misgendering is that it's clear that it's a character attack simply because they disagree with your views. That's not constructive debate.
