The satanism panic has mostly died off, but its mostly just the focus shifting from RPGs to more popular media.

Karl Marx, the jewish inventor of "communism" as a cover for jews, wrote an article, "On the Jewish Question".

He proposed that jews would never be afforded equal rights with Christians in Christian nations so long as they remained Christian nations. His proposed solution? Convert them into athiest nations. Remember, one of the maxims of communism is an establishment of christianity, just like the anti-christian message constantly preached in schools and by the media.

I think its the mental image. They think about someone playing computer games and all they see is one fat guy pressing buttons.

But when they think about D&D they see a gathering of outcasts in a dark room, studying books about magic and demons and talking about using them. Its much easier to spin it as a cult activity.

muhc more people played video games, even adults, my dad played Castlevania in the NES before i was born, so diablo didn't seem so weird to him(he played more than i did)

But roleplaying games are weird because you can't see anything, the board is not "intuitive" like in other board games if there even is one, the rulebooks are gigant and it often takes up to 6 hours to play, besides the fact that there are no winers which is just mind blowing to people (after 10+ years my mother still asks me if i win... wich is do cause im awesome)

Video games get plenty of negative attention, but the fantasy ones get largely ignored because the Call of Duty style shooters are much more popular / realistic in their depiction of murdering people. Bills aimed at video game censorship have been introduced in the US congress, and IIRC Britain and/or Australia have banned some games (not from there, so perhaps a Brit or Ausfriend can tell more.

There's some craziness about traditional games too, though. Magic stopped using Demons as a creature type for several years (resumed a few years ago) because of objections by Christians.

/v/ gets its own flavour of hate. Anyone for a school shootout? DOOM taught me its ok! etc.

It's just your usual group of knee jerkers who assume anything new will rot the very foundations of society. They were the same way about movies, TV, recordable cassette tapes, the internet and everything else that was new and unknown.

The thing to really worry about is keeping some semblance of an open mind about criticisms of your hobby and not just defending it by default without ever actually considering that it might actually have some downsides.

Take WoW for example. I don't want to see videogames censored or controlled but I do think that people spending 14 hours a day on WoW while being NEET and having no real friends is a bad thing. Same for Kids spending thousands of thier parents money on farmville or whatever facebook/ipad game kids play these days. The rub is how can we prevent or at least reduce those kind of destructive elements without resorting to legislation that limits the potential of the medium in the long run.

Actually the one girl I know who does a vampire LARP is pretty fit. Her biggest negative on an attractiveness level is how she's one of those WoD fans who are a bit too hardcore into it. I've dated both more and less attractive women than her, so being surprisingly pretty doesn't make up for the fact it's kind of offputting anymore.

But seriously, has anyone met a big WoD fan who isn't a bit too into it? I know a couple of the people who write for the fucking company and they aren't as deep into things as your average fan you meet. What mystical power does the World of Darkness hold over man?

Bull fucking shit. I went to a Catholic High School and we had a Games Club. Originally it was founded for family style board games, but my friends and I turned it into a more geek games club. When we started playing DnD there our faculty sponsor, a nun, wanted to know what was up with it and asked to play. She played an awesome paladin and even more awesome rogue, though I think the later gets points from hearing a little old nun say stuff like "While Ragnar distracts the orc chief I sneak around behind him and shank in his filthy green kidneys."

My girlfriend stabbed me with a fork once because I was in the throes of a delusion and she needed to get me back into reality. She understands my affinity for pain and the fact that I have scars on my arm not because I'm depressed, but because pain brings me back into reality as my brain realizes 'Hey, you're getting hurt, get to somewhere safe'.

I live on the edge of the Bible Belt and who is it that is always causing shitstorms over trivial shit? It is not the Catholics, it is always one protestant sect or another, most of the time some flavor of Baptist.

One of the local Baptist Church's had someone going door to door last weekend urging people not to celebrate Halloween. When they got to my house I asked them if they were going to do the same thing around Christmas due to its timing being related to Saturnalia. I could almost taste the rage at that suggestion.

What groups sponsor shit like young earth theology/pseudo-science? Not the Catholics, they learned from their previous bouts with Science and they "let Caesar have what is Caesar's."

When Harry Potter got super popular one local church made the news by having a Harry Potter Book Burning. It was pretty disturbing, I went and handed out about 50 copies of Fahrenheit 451. I am sure a good number of them ended up in the fire with poor Harry, but if even one of them got read and made someone re-think the idea of book burning I did good.

True enough, but I'm running it off of the basic historical framework that they've already got, if only out of sheer curiosity for how things will turn out when the main characters are not only badasses in and of themselves, but are equipped with living weaponry that are usually pretty loyal to them.


It's an entirely viable way of catching Pokemon, and I see nothing wrong with it. Some Pokemon can be caught with food, some can be caught with a rope, others you have to beat the crap out of first. Those are all viable ways of getting different 'Mons, and if people don't agree with it, I'll simply point out what goes on in real life. Hell, did he bitch about the fact that there's rules for death in PTA as well, or the fact that Ghost-types are all fucking horrifying because half of them kill humans or were once human, or the fact that there's a class in the game that kills Pokemon and makes weapons and armor out of them Monster Hunter style?

Some dogs are fairly intelligent. The comparison is closer than you might think.

Of course, that comparison also only really applies to the mook-level mons you'd find in the first hour of the game, right outside town. The ones that are directly comparable to real-world animals. Pidgy, ratta, all the other early-on "this is pretty much just an animal" tier stuff.

Once you move on past those sorts, yeah, the IRL animal mindset is none too accurate. I mean, on one hand you have a bird. It fights by doing bird things, like flying and pecking. It follows that it would have roughly bird-like levels of intelligence (at least before evolving). On the other hand, you have a flying cloud of gas shaped like a face and hands, that fights by gliding though walls and infecting you with a horrible, convulsive disease by licking you.

We had a kid who really wanted to play D&D with us once.

His mother legitimately (I really, REALLY wish this was hyperbole) believed that playing D&D would cause the ground to open up underneath of him and that Satan would swallow him up.

She was fine with Warhammer, though.

I don't even know what her problem was with roleplaying games.
I think she had some retardedly vague logic about gambling or something.

My girlfriend is a delicious dark chocolate social butterfly who loves LARPing as much as she does classic Disney movies.

Still don't know how I got so lucky.

Remember friends, women are vile bags of bodily fluids as well. We're all the same.
