For PCs: Don't play a sociopath.

For GMs: Have natural and realistic consequences for sociopathic behavior.

Not really. Some people have been complaining about other people playing unusual characters for decades. Their opinions have never factored into what kind of characters I want to play.

Some might be seen as unusual by one person and classic-tropish by another. Not playing primarily with gamers that worship the old Appendix N as gospel goes a long way towards becoming free of a lot of that expectations-baggage. Playing with gamers that understand that characters are much much more than their race/class/alignment combo wipes it away almost entirely.

Playing a CG half-orc barbarian and a LG tiefling paladin in two different campaigns right now and enjoying both immensely. The former is far from boring and stereotypical; the latter is far more than the combination of his parts.

Some of these things are not like the others. Some of these things.

A serious conversation could be had for non-horrible representation for the BDSM crowd for example. Many are already rightfully taking place for transgender gamers. Those two matters are not equivalent, but still warrant serious discussion.

But much of the rest?

There's a difference between fetishes, especially destructive ones, and orientation and gender identity. And putting it all in the same basket is going to make a lot of people very, very upset.

And I say that as a #%*+ing pervert.

Got some thoughts on dryads, but on the go. Still:

I really think dryads get given a huge pass on the basis of "fey logic/morality is different" and it's just sort of stuck and sticks out more and more as certain aspects of fantasy in general and the game in particular get examined more closely and reevaluated. Kind of like how love potions once seemed an innocent trope but are now seen as horrifying or have to be heavily reworked to not be so. Dryads seem to hold out against change on virtue of legacy for the most part, but interestingly that only seems to be the case for bestiary entries. Every dryad I remember showing up in PF adventures didn't keep a collection of charmed people while being presented as good. And those dryads that are mentioned as having lovers are also never described as having charmed them IIRC.

But yeah, good dryads charming beings to prevent danger I can see, but not so much the charmed harem collecting version.

Because good harem collectors respect consent and negotiated boundaries made free of coercion.

(my next character is totally not going to be a faun that tries to explain romantic ethics and morality to dryads and satyrs)

Not exclusively for the sake of women, I feel like a lot of RP gamer guys could work on their attitudes a bit.

Some of the *$#@ they say rankles me, and I know it's the type that many women also find off-putting.

Yeah, again this past year has really pushed wretched behavior that just gets taken for granted into the spotlight.

I was reading up on some game fandom stuff on Tumblr and it was fantastic and welcoming in tone. Then I looked up the same exact subject on a dedicated gaming forum and it was cringe-inducing at best.

Stopping excusing some gamers' tendency to go from 0 to Raving Misogynist/Racist/Homophobe like flipping a switch as just being "part of the culture" would be a pleasant change of pace.

Seconding too many things to count. After such a horrible year of sexism in gaming, I pray it sticks.

Only things I can offer that wouldn't repeat much of what's upthread would be:

1. Talk to women who want to game.

2. Actually listen to what they have to say. And don't just latch onto the one response that backs up preconceived notions and use it to dismiss everything else.

3. This is for new gamers in general, but cut out the geek hazing rituals already.

Dodging real life issues in your fantasy is even worse than IRL cowardice.

While I think fantasy can be a great vehicle for dealing with real life issues and that an evil empire producing sexist plays in CoT isn't problematically offensive, I do have to take issue with this statement as it has been used many times before to justify throwing things in to be offensive.

That is, to use one specific example: I deal with homophobia all the time in real life. Some of my fantasy intake and output deals with homophobia, be it in novels or gaming. But sometimes, I don't want to have to deal with homophobia in my escapist fantasy.

To say that indulging in the latter is worse than real life cowardice may not be your intention, but that argument does get used, both here in the past by those that have insisted that LGBT characters must deal with persecution or else it's not "genuine" and elsewhere, like when some people absolutely lost their minds over Blue Rose.

It is okay to want to escape from the crap we have to deal with in real life sometimes, be it sexism, racism, homophobia, disabilities, and so on. There is no cowardice in finding a moment's release from that weight rather than being forced to wallow in it 24/7.

Myth Lord:
I don't think most folks hate you, Myth; I certainly wouldn't for that. I went a good long stretch where I didn't play D&D but I enthusiastically read the game material and novels, so it would be might hypocritical of me to hold that against someone. If I ever came across as hating on you, I sincerely apologize. That has never been my intention.

But I will say it's easy to get frustrated sometimes. Honestly, it's the seeming eagerness to bring the party down whenever someone is enjoying something you don't that really gets under people's skin. Take the Bestiary Wishlist threads for example: Instead of focusing on building up the things you wanted, you also didn't shy away from tearing down what you didn't, even when this meant dissing someone else's wish. It's true, not everything is going to be for everyone, but not liking something is no call for raining on the parades of others who finally get their nice thing. And it can be frustrating for the writers as well, when the first thing their work and creativity is met with is a trashing simply because it wasn't to your tastes.

Yes, it's true that some go after you too harshly at times, especially when you're not even engaging in that behavior at the time. But eventually you've got to see that most of the pushback you see is brought about by self-fulfilling prophecy. It can't keep going on like this, it just isn't healthy for you or the community.

I know there's a lot of personal stuff feeding into some of this. I feel you there. But please trust me, a positive approach can make all the difference. And speaking from experience, it makes more lasting connections and gets results. :)

And also seconding what Tybid said about online groups. In many ways they can be much easier and feel safer to open up to and be yourself. I'm in one now and even without knowing almost half of the group beforehand, we've grown pretty tight and trusting with each other. It's worked out really well for us, and some of our number do have reasons to feel unsafe or just uncomfortable being open in face-to-face groups.

It may not be guaranteed to work on the first try, but there are groups out there for you. :)

Wishing you well, man.

Last night.

Driving home through the dead of a cold winter's night under a full moon and everything is bright

The sky is crystal clear, blown clean after days of storm clouds and decorated with those stars bright enough to stand out with that intensely glowing moon. 

There's no one else on the road.  There's a thick wall of trees on both sides.  And the road just hit a straight stretch that goes on for miles. 

That full moon hangs perfectly over the center of the smooth, pale road ahead, casting everything from the street to the trees to the grass in shades of silver and shadow.  For a while, the whole world seems ghostly and dreamlike.

And Florence + The Machines' "Strangeness and Charm" just started in the playlist. 

I wish I had a longer drive home sometimes.

Oddly enough, I'm a fan of both as well and those specific APs are three of my absolute favorites. :)

I love Jade Regent because asian mythology is one of my favorite mythologies and I love the encounters and twists in the book.

Iron G's is about a thing I really dispise so I didn't even try it. WOTR is something I could have liked, but I really didn't liked the encounters in the book and the other articles in the books, also didn't like a single bestiary entry spare for the water leaper.

Overblown complaints about Drizzt clones far outnumber actual instances of real Drizzt clones. They're more obnoxious as well.

And it's been that way for over a decade.

If anyone can't see why a non-evil drow character can work and can work well, that says more about their lack of imagination than the quality of yours. Don't let other people dictate what you enjoy.

Besides, non-evil drow are canonically a thing in Golarion. And they aren't nigh-impossible instances in drow society. Hell, the biggest gentlemen's club in Zirnakaynin is run by a CN drow man, and that's like painting a bullseye on your back and framing it with neon and sparklers.

That monk-raised drow is absolutely fine, IMO.

If I had to pick one evil to be irredeemable and looking at the game cosmology from a bit of an Origenest attitude, it would have to be the destruction of souls.

The fact that demons and devils regularly work alongside angels to stop daemons from preying on the River of Souls speaks volumes, even if the first two are guided primarily by self-interest.

The earlier discussion about mutual respect needing to overcome power imbalances and taking responsibility for producing a child is also quite relevant.

Are you certain you are fine having a child in this manner?

Are you certain you are fine with her having your child in that manner?

And is this how you wish for one of your children to be born? Is the life they are likely to be given what you wish for them?

Interesting, I read it that you were responsible for their lives as in they were under your protection until handed over to the legal authorities. As in, you wouldn't let the party kill them after they talked. Coupled with everything else, I think my interpretation fits better, that the paladin of Iomedae is concerned with the root of evil, not the actual symptoms.

Up to now, he's captured an assassin in a failed attempt, made her talk and then handed her over to the government. Not sure he's really had a quandary yet.

An agent of evil is not a symptom, they are a cause of it and a source.

The paladin, if they win and prevail, is the cure. The cure being massive damage and a one-way ticket to the lower planes (where their filthy souls belong).

This is the line of thinking that enabled the "witch"-hunters and other atrocities of the Third Mendevian Crusade.

That is not the outlook of any paladin I know.

We kill when we must. Redemption is always a greater victory than vengeance.
