It was a cartoon from the 80s. All the kids that got on a magic fair ground ride got transported to D&D land and given classes based on what they were least suited for because """comedy""". Except for the acrobat, she acutely was good at her job but her thing was being the token black. To be fair it was one of the least shit cartoons of that era, not that this is a particularly good achievement.

Always wanted to run a campaign in the world they got sent to 70 or 80 years afterwards. I don't think they ever made it home in the cartoon before it got axed and the evil Dark Lord remained undefeated.

The only two left by then would be the unicorn and the wizard. Wizard because he can magic some basic levels of longevity when he finally learns magic and the unicorn because magical creature.

It's more that both /pol/ and sjws are doing the same attempting to control information and all sex stuff is bad shit.
And a lot of normal stuff.

I think /pol/ is responsible for a LOT of the "playing a kid? must be because you're a pedo". "Playing a lizardman? Fucking furry" nonsense that makes up the male human only problem.

You forgot a dash of /int/. What little serious discussion there was has been utterly ruined by the presence of flags. Before flags, you could discuss the situation of a country. Now it's shitflinging between "that country" and "its allies" against their "rivals". It's cringeworthy country roleplay rather than individuals discussing a subject.

I shudder when I imagine the day every board has flags.

I find Child PCs very context sensitive. If you are in standard games they often come off as either short adults, complete and utter morons far beyond the stupidity of actual children, or pedo bait. If they are played as damaged child soldiers as they probably would be, it feels tasteless, dark for the sake of dark, verging on black comedy and then still sometimes pedo bait(pic related). The only time I can think it would work is if ALL the PCs are children, forcing players to create characters whose defining character trait isn't "child". It doesn't help that most people don't understand how children think.

A story on that: We did a presentation in HS for a bunch of 1st and 2nd graders. One of them asked what we had taped on our faces. Three of my fellow presenters tried to explain that if they didn't have them they would not be able to hear them, mimicking what they would sound like if they didn't have them. Seeing the children were confused I walked forward and said simply "they are microphones"; instant recognition.
