My question (which I have never gotten a real response to yet) to people who want all of a race to be evil is what does it add to your game?
Like, it clearly reduces the depth of any narrative you could possibly be telling. It clearly reinforces a mentality that's lead to God knows how many actual IRL people being killed, enslaved etc. I've never had somebody tell me what's actually good about it.
I saw one person say that races should be different and not like humans. Okay, but why in terms of alignments? Orcs can see in the dark, have tusks, and developed specific cultures. That is different than a human. How does adding on "also they're barbaric and tribal and literally all evil" add anything of value to anyone other than people who want to dogwhistle their problematic beliefs?
