It seems there are TWO skin colours in RPG's.
white and green.
So did your game or character ever have a different skin colour? like, proper minority?

>> No.13602456


>> No.13602464

In one campaign setting I played in, humans mostly came from the desert, and as such were nearly all black or brown. There were a few white humans, but they were by far the minority.

That sounds cool, and full of conniving sand mages.

I played fantasy arabs.
In a setting where they had an empire.
They weren't the majority nor the minority.

>> No.13602474


At he moment my players are facing, what are essentially, Somali pirate dorfs.

Skin colour varies on where they travel, obviously they meet travellers of varying skin tones and races.

Funny story was that in the beginning, every time i would mention someone had a different skin tone, the players would befriend them and follow them around thinking it was a plot hook. They bothered a poor old dark skinned fellow at a fruit stall for several days once (They had been sent to a small town to find a "unique looking gentleman", it was actually a halfling pimp coated in body piercings they were supposed to latch onto).

so do you know what my favorite part of the whole thing with the avatar movie and failing at casting people of color was

it was when they were "oh shit people are upset we made all the protagonists white, better add a colored dude... OH I KNOW, THE VILLAIN, HE CAN BE BROWN."

>So did your game or character ever have a different skin colour? like, proper minority?
Yeah. Osric Masterson, the Power of Technicalities, in a Nobilis game. He was born in Elizabethan times and became a Noble through the Red-Tooth Rite (i.e. eating the heart of the previous Noble).

Also, I briefly played a pseudo-Indian effeminate prettyboy Jade Phoenix Mage with gender identity issues because at night he was reliving the life of his (female) first incarnation--complete with identity and attractions and everything.

The setting I'm currently running a game in has a mix of humans of all different skin colors, new races of humans that have evolved over the millennia as well as many other sentient races from alien worlds. Sofar, the campaign has focused on human nations.

Recently, the party went to a country in the middle of the desert near the equator so most everyone there was a shade of brown or black. Then they went to a place that was basically soviet Russia with run by werewolves. The soviet werewolves attacked the desert country while the party was there celebrating national orgy day.

I played an African-American medic, with a side of telepathy and mad gambling skills, in near-future game a friend of mine ran.

In the last campaign we played, I ended up becoming the King of a Moroccan styled kingdom which was predominantly black or other dark colors. Also our Elven nation was Han dynasty China, with an emperor and the everything. We even had a black paladin who had a personal vendetta against vampires. We never figured out if this was done to represent some repressed feelings of racial hat or if he hated Twilight.

I got all paranoid because the creepy CIA goons with us were obviously behind the mind-fucking, apparently reality-warping effects of the place we were in.

Game is low-level euro based, so no wacky skin colors, but ethnic groups, yeah. Anything past fantasy-Rhine is a clusterfuck of insane politics and border skirmishes. This actually counts for both sides of the Rhine. Yeah.
