Eclipse Phase shows anarchists and communists in a positive light, especially compared to the corporations in the game but I think I'd like to see, or I guess maybe make, a setting with the default assumption of an anarcho-communist structure. Maybe something Solar Punk

I was thinking about how so many of our tabletop rpgs are rooted in inherently capitalist assumptions even to the point of anachronism in the case of medieval fantasy settings. I wonder what a "leftist" tabletop game would look like or if one has already been made that I just haven't seen yet. Closest I can think of is Sigmata but that's more anti-fa than full on anarcho-communist.

Anarchist News: **Totw: let's try this again, on criticism**

"First off, I really like good criticism. To me it a sign of someone paying attention and thinking something through.

TMW after months of not having inspiration to work on something you come up with a story/campaign setting and both your local and online gaming groups all say no and each for a different reason about the thing you pitched.

Good morning!~

There is more that connects us than divides us!

Whether your magic comes from the gods, nature, your bloodline, your studies, music, or a pact with Cthulhu it is still magic!

Whether your fighting prowess comes from sneaking, training, discipline, or rage it is still fighting!

We are all stronger together! Forge bonds with others, and no enemy can face your combined strength!

I believe in us!

~Your Bard, hand outstretched

Today May Not Have Been The Best Of Days However That Need Not Inform Your Tomorrows, You're Going To Be Okay, I Promise

polemics, rant 

Few things frustrate me more than having a reasoned argument with someone regarding a contentious topic they're defending poorly and then having them turn around and treat my responses like they belong to Theseus and complain about me on their feed without tagging me or replying so their followers lose all context.

It's possible we screwed up by allowing a word as neutral as "platform" to represent what Waypoint's Artifact review here pretty persuasively calls "the dominant economic form of our era". When controlled privately by for-profit entities, platforms are /fiefdoms/ and all of us - workers, creators, customers alike - are their serfs.

Disrespecting a trans persons pronouns just because you’re mad at them doesn’t make it acceptable. It’s still a terrible gross thing to do.
