    You forgot the pee fetish in the Spellfire saga. Yes Eddy, we know that women have to pee sometimes. No need to remind us every 10 pages...

    If nothing else, Greenwood's "contributions" to the hobby are good to remember since it explains where a lot of things in the current market and fanbase come from.

    I've had acquaintances talk about their campaign where so and so gets involved in some love triangle thing and blah blah. I always stare at it and think, "I just wanted to fight some orcs, man." :hahano:

    I... actually don't remember much about Spellfire. Just the dracolich getting hammered by spellfire. And something about the Cult of Dragons.

    Wat. You are literally the one who did that by referencing a non-FR source, I just followed up on your comment to say there are also sources outside FR with bearded dwarf women. In my original thread I only reference FR since we’re talking about a damned FR game. I am also not conflating anything, just stating the fact that more settings have references to dwarven females with beards, including Middle Earth, Dragonlance and Greyhawk.

    Lemme ask you: is it or is it not true that bearded dwarves women have been a thing before including in FR and thus are not a modern SJW novelty?

    Because that is the singular assertion I have made, and since you don’t seem disagree with me on that, I’m having difficulty discerning what your actual point is - if indeed you have one at all. If your point was to “object to Ed Greenwood” then my most recent response applies, seeing as I haven’t made any statements regarding the quality of his writings except to say that I generally find most P&P fantasy writing underwhelming.

    I grew up thinking people romancing each other at tabletop games was like a Hollywood stereotype joke view of P&P. The thought of two of the nerds at my table romancing each other is enough to creep a brother out

    Don't bearded dwarf women go back to Tolkien? I doubt he had an SJW agenda.

    Yes (see my edit) though IIRC it’s primarily in the form of a minor appendix reference. Not a Tolkien buff

    Seriously. I mean, the very thought of female dwarves with beards? What would Gygax say?

    Oh. Never mind then.

    What the fuck is going on in this thread

    After getting my feet wet with friends playing as a DM for a year, i decided to host a table for a local group that kept asking for a DM, a bunch of guys and a girl.
    Long story short, one guy played a female and other a male, both started flirting with each other "RPing", it was fucking akward as you can imagine and then they ended up fucking while the main group was interrogating some guy in the Inn basement.

    Fast foward 2 weeks in and they were gay closet type of guys and ended up fucking for real, that shit was just damn wild.

    I guess these people are the reason that romances are so prevalent in cRPGs :timetoburn:

    What a stupid debate. Bearded female dwarves are not an SJW thing. They've been around since at least tolkien. In Everquest, back in 99, you could give female dwarf characters beards (I know because my female cleric was a bearded dwarf).

    But that lore also comes with the idea that dwarven men tend to go after non dwarf women, because they think the bearded women are ugly. That's the real tell that it's not SJW shit.

    Is BG3 out yet? Is it still barrelmancy?

    I just realized that half-giants in the Dark Sun campaign setting are trans-alignment:

    "Half-giants can switch their attitudes very quickly, taking on new values to fit new situations. A half-giant whose peaceful farming life is disrupted by marauders may soon adopt the morals of the very renegades who sacked his village. To reflect this, one aspect of a half-giant's alignment must be fixed, and chosen during character creation. The other half must be chosen when they awaken each morning. They are only bound to that alignment until they sleep again. (See Chapter 4, Alignment). For example, a half-giant may have a fixed "lawful" alignment. Every morning, he must choose to be lawful good, lawful neutral, or lawful evil."
    - From the campaign setting book :M

    I think that's called bipolarism, but I'm no expert on this matter.

    It was a joke at expense of the dwarves made by a confirmed elf-wanker.
    Regardless if the intention was to lighten the mood a bit or anything else, the joke made roots in the agenda-minded people's fertile brains, as it allows them to shove foot in the door.

    What do you think was one of the panels on that recent "Tolkien is gay" convention or how it was called.
    Yeah, it was about how bearded dwarven ladies is a sign that Talking was a pro-transgender activist.

    Unfortunately the activists look for the slightest thing to make an author "one of them".

    In Tolkien's case it's extra insulting considering his extremely conservative views on religion.

    You know, there are many ways to read different works of literature, but that's definitely one of the stupider ones. May their brain worms be terminal.

    homophobia symptomatically is an indicator for repressed (homo)sexuality...

    but female dwarves with beards rlly pose a challenge to my (sophisticated) interpretation of gender aesthetics. a genius provocation with the intent to ask: do biological features matter more than a persons character? tbh, personally for intimacies both r required.
