The idea of the x-card isn't really about protection from triggering elements, it's at least in my mind, really just another way for the SocJus crowd to sanitize and control an area, that as a player, wouldn't be in their control.
And then they send out their shitty little minions to go be triggered by anything they don't like and filibuster it to death with these shitty little Nazi cards.

The only time I've heard of anything like that being used is in some pretty hardcore LARPs that could make someone unprepared a bit freaked out. There should be nothing on tabletop that requires that. If your GM invites you to enter his magical piss forest just get up from the table and leave.
LARPs, despite being stupid, have a valid reason for an eject button, since people are actually physically moving around and interacting. There's a much higher opportunity for someone to wind up getting hurt if someone's not on the same page about rules or physical boundaries.

Five to ten years ago, the fad was "cooperative" games, where either there was no GM or else the GM's traditional powers were strictly defined, limited, and in part given to players.
I absolutely fucking hate that style of game. When I play RPGs I want there to be a consistent world that I'm interacting with, when I open a door I want specific things on the other side. I don't want the game to stop and the GM to ask, "Well what do YOU think is in the room?" No, fuck you. Not my job.

Fantasy Flight's Star Wars system actually has a rule mechanic for tweaking things, players can blow destiny points to pull stuff like, "But wait, I actually had a spare key in my coat the whole time!" to alter the game. I don't mind that because it's inherently limited by having a cost and by needing one's bullshitting to be at least vaguely believable to the GM.

I found a useful little trick was to have players fill out minor details which don't relate to the plot. For example I occasionally ask them for the description of minor Npc's I havnt really fleshed out, actually has the potential to take the game in interesting routes, I also tend to encourage the players to flesh out the personal details to give me stuff to drop in later on.

Plus, y'know, you need an obvious way to differentiate a character's lack of consent from the actual person's.

RPGnet got a plug after a knitting social network decided to copy their rule on banning support for Trump.

If the internet were around in the 40's:

Vichy French Guy - "My wife saw today that we are adapting Germany'a anti-Jew Nuremberg Laws! That's a sign it must be a good one."

German Nazi-"Wow, didn't know you guys were inspired by this place! Feels so good!"

Ithink it's more like
"well we got rid of all discussion of Hitler, Stalin and Tojo. This will prevent it from being an issue."
"wow you're right. Now we don't talk about them they'll just go away."

I remember when RPG.net forums reached the consensus that Kingdom Death caused rapists.

I'm not sure how pushing a resin penis monster around on the table can make you just up and wanna rape a person, but then again- I suppose there's a certain type of person that gravitates towards a game with resin penis monsters... so I still wouldn't say it 'creates' them.

Ravelry adopting RPGnet's "No Trump" rule attracted a few comments that hilariously lacked in self-awareness.

As someone who owns the game... You're probably right

Well, a quick gander over at Trouble Tickets for the last couple weeks shows... The banpocalypse continues, the infighting and purity tests get worse, we officially see someone banned for (I guess?) supporting Trump, and someone copped a ban for apparently being disrespectful to AOC, in a new partisan low.

This pamphlet just appeared on DriveThruRPG for free. It's pretty much what you'd expect.

The authors are Sean Reynolds, who is one of the writers from Numerera and wrote a lot of material for D&D 3.5 The other is Shanna Germain, another of Monte Cook's writers when she's not writing BDSM porn.

RPGNet happily takes this opportunity to pat themselves on the back about how progressive they are and nerdshame anyone who would disagree, because they are clearly a cishet white machild racist MRA who gets off on abusing other people.

The whole thing reminds me of a post I read a while back, comparing this sort of thing to gentrification.

Actually yeah, you've got to take in account their are a lot of really awkward people who think they're the smart in the hobby. I've lost count of the number of people through the years who are annoying, morons spouting unfunny memes who won't shut the fuck up, power gamers, [people living out their pathetic fantasies about not being a fat loser, homely chicks looking for validation, Alchoholics, Furries and genrally people so fucked up they practically have to be a nerd to get any social acceptance.


The sad thing is their are incels, mysogenists and freaks in the hobby-it's just sjws presume themselves as some sort of a solution when they're an part of the problem. I'd bet my right eye a load of woke types are the sort who actually make women/minorities feel uncomfortable but now percieve themselves as the good guys because they think trumps a shitty president and read some boring book telling you not to talk about your weird fetishes in public

When you combine this with a self-gratulatory echo-chamber attitude cultivated by net SJW culture and you have entire swathes of people who thing they're the smartest person in the world because they have a 4th hand sophomore grasp of Kimberlé Crenshaws work and read some shitty hotakes on Twitter.

Going to read that e-book when I get back from work wish me luck guys.

The thing is the "that guys" are like herpes. Mildly annoying and embarrassing and you can't really get rid of them. SJWs are more like full blown AIDS or cancer.

The true lesson here is that other human beings are terrible and we need to kill everyone now.
