    He should be ashamed of himself as a German. Nicholas II was cousin to Kaiser Wilhelm II. The Russian monarchy was also the German monarchy.

    Seems bitter that everyone messages him to praise things he didn't do.

    Maybe they are insinuating something to him.

    As bad as Russian monarchy was it's still infinitely better than Bolshevism.

    The "diversty consulting" thing is just one big grift. Yeah, needlessly spend your budget on things that don't matter and that almost nobody cares about.

    What a loser he's become, retconning his own past.

    If it is only that ("diversity consulting"), yeah... you certainly have a point.

    But if writers have background in the culture they are describing, it could also add more depth and detail. Similarly to how a military background may help when telling a mil-scifi story. So I'd try to see the positive side of things. They may add something, rather than remove something from the story/characters. If you hire the right people, at least.

    Which is why real writers do real research, not rely on some phony racket.

    Unless you're aiming for complete historical accuracy(e.g., kingdom come: deliverance), it's probably going to make your product worse than simply relying on stereotypes and tropes.
    In what possible way would Deadfire have been made better if they had consulted some Maori "expert" when writing the Huana?

    Since joining this forum I have learned that the creators behind all my favorite childhood games have become cucks. Just feels a bit sad that I missed the glory days of forum posting when you could talk about games and their creators without the risk of becoming disappointed in their cuckiness. Now it seems there is all there is :(

    In what sense? You mean bringing politics and current culture war in Obsidian games and Pillars 3?
    If they're compelled to bring politics in games simply replace current social structure names and political agendas with new ones in fabricated language. Don't even say what they are explicitly.
    SJW, virtue signalling, divisive political environment break immersion, undoubtedly.
    Hope that Sawyer's game won't be some modern one but violent medieval semi-historical fantasy where aggressive media isn't present.

    Alternately, he could have, you know, designed factions for deadfire that weren't so obviously 'inspired' by cultures in our world and avoided the issue entirely (insofar as the issue is ever avoidable entirely).

    lol, I can read only about 50% of the handwritten part. Maybe less. Most of it just blends into something like "Dwmwmnnwnnwmwn Emwmwmn Jmwmwmn"

    Most of my mom's family came to the US around 1860. My dad's side came between 1910 and 1923.

    Does that mean he still has to repent for mistreatment of blacks and slavery like any other white American should? Just curious.
