    Contrary to Roguey beliefs, Sawyer does not oppose all simulationism:

    I never said he was anti-sim, he's anti-pseudo-sim.

    It's written in the Book of Sawyer that simulationism is okay if you go all-out on it with no half-measures. I'm personally not interested.

    I'm actually grateful that Feargus is around to nix the low-historical-fantasy idea in favor of something that would actually sell more than thousands of copies.

    "pretty simulationist" sounds more half-measure than all-out to me.

    Open your mind more, part of the problem with this sub-genre is poor marketing and connecting with fans. The Kickstarter-funded ARPG Kingdom Come seems to have overcome some of those challenges, and even has external investment (which is going to occur based on far more rigorous market-testing analytics than a KS campaign).

    Well, it's good to know it was a mistake! At least they got the Kennedy impersonation right for President Kimball.

    Looks like Josh nixed that idea he had about an antebellum-era south fantasy setting.

    He wrote a short story about it, put in an awful lot of racial slurs. :M

    If Josh wants to visit the south, he can feel free to PM me. I'll set him up.

    Went to the trouble of shopping Josh into a scene from Deliverance.... then realised I'd shopped him onto a corpse :(

    Seemed a bit too harsh to post.

    The Legion were supposed to be min/maxing-for-the-purposes-of-creating-more-soldiers-in-the-quickest-amount-of-time misogynists, not "LOL GET BACK IN THE KITCHEN" misogynists.

    If he wants to popamole the shit out of PoE on tablets and consoles, I say let him. This way any meaningful project will be led by someone else.
    This.

    Get back in the kitchen is an ideology I can get behind.

    They weren't "overly misogynacistic". They were as hateful with women as they were with their fellow men.
    They are slave-traders ffs.

    The writers used the wrong kind of misogyny. Josh wanted "What, why would a woman want to fight in the arena????" not "WOMEN CAN'T FIGHT."

    Eh, let's be honest here.

    Josh may go at this from an overly SJ angle one of the main complaints even/especially on the codex were that the legion was comically evil.
