TheElf updated his blog post Is D&D too white? 6 days ago

Is D&D too white? Is gaming too white? We heard about Oscar. An award that seems to be too white according to some people. And we can explain how the movie industry is too white. But if we start to explain that we will see "video games are even more white" and products for traditional tabletop RPGs like D&D are even more white.  And it is easy to understand these trends, and our explanations will start with an "N word".

TheElf added a new post entitled Key decisions in game design: A "wired" century on his blog 1 week ago

I remember how many people claimed "we have WiFi, 3G now, how funny it is to see wired connections in ..." and claimed a realistic game would focus on wireless connections. Yet those people forget one simple fact: When they want to download large data, their phone would ask for a WiFi connection instead of cellular one. For a good reason: They expect that WiFi router is connected to a wired network. Its easy to miss that point and even miss the reasons behind this.

Recently I heard a story about a girl role playing her favourite character, a female knight. That isn't something special.

Before we would start complaining about sexism, we know that sexism, racism and other forms of prejudice and hatred exists in most fantasy and scifi worlds. So encounters like this can happen, right?

Most gamers know well what happened with Pillars of Eternity, and the allegedly transphobic joke it contained. Well, it doesn't look transphobic, and it doesn't look like a joke. And while some people spoke about "portraying prejudice" that poem wasn't
