    Keep it up, bud. You're approaching more and more to your "true self", and I'm kind of excited to see what kind of all out fascist rantery you'll be doing in a few months from now.

    You've already shown your true self (oooh spooky) by turning into a autist who has to try and argue with me in every thread about shit that's not even related to the topic at hand. You're the one bringing up American slavery, lynching people and the current election in a thread about a hypothetical game set in Africa 100+ years ago. Either PM and confess your love and how that's why you're constantly stalking me all over the forum or calm your autism and stick to the topic at hand you Goddamn sperglord.

    1. Keep refering to autism, that sure shows you have the right arguments!

    2. I suggested a game where, game-play-wise, you play against all odds: To withstand invasions that, per recorded history, ended in most of Africa being colonized. When I play WW2 games, I tend to play as Norway, trying to withstand German advances. What, is that lame of me? Should I prefer playing as Germany?
    Your immediate response was "boo hoo, it would disrespect white people!"

    3. Oh look, the "stop obsessing about me" angle. Are you new to the internet? You're the one constantly flying off the handle, replying with long-ass rants, all-out attacking noobs for being noobs, and when a few time I confront you for being such a douche you whine and cry about autism instead of defending your racism. Yes, it shows, lots of it. Defend it, like Illuminati Confirmed has the balls to do.

    You are a fascist. I'll continue to call you out on your fascism as long as you stay a fascist. Facsists are scum. I spit on them. Cry all you want.

    Look at all this relevent discussion that you didnt just randomly drag into the thread because my mere prescence is triggering to you.
    Please continuing accusing others of flying off the handle as you have a random mental breakdown about some irrelevent shit you've assumed about me in the middle of a random, not even politics thread.

    No my reponse that it was boring and lame to do the same dime a dozen story thats been told over and over again and this hypothetical ROLE PLAYING GAME should allow you to play and explore both sides instead of being a generic shooter where you play as definite good native guys against definite bad colonial White guys in a linear story. We're talking about an RPG with choice and whatnot, not Fallout V

    @zegh8578 I think @Vergil is beating you.

    If I had to tally it it would probably go :

    Zegg : iii
    Vergil : v

    He's only two valid points ahead.

    Seriously take this cringy personal vendetta against me to a PM or something. I don't feel like arguing about random meaningless bullshit and have you scream fascist at me for no reason in a potentially interesting thread.

    You should. It's a very prestigious award.

    But back to the actual thread, I'd like to see an RPG in a new setting. Fantasy is over done at this point, and sci-fi hasn't been going anywhere. There's a ton of Chinese/Japanese mythology, so colonial Africa could be a good place.

    Umm yeah guys, could we end this? My idea of the game would be set in the Congo, when European explorers only started... exploring into the Jungle, and a large degree of romantic though existed. This is where the Arab slavers come in (Zanzibar coast) and tribals. I mean, at the very worst you can just play a European explorer trying to find the Mountain of the Moon (corny eh?) where you make your own character, party and buy up supplies while travelling through the Jungle, seeing small outposts and other tribes.

    I think it would be fun to have an historical RPG without any (modern) european part. Like the earily Zulu Kingdom or the aforementioned Ashanti Empire, or, going further back, the Kingdom of Aksum, which would be very interesting with its ties to Rome and Byzantium. Or the Ethiopean Empire under the House of Solomon. Africa is very interesting to say the least.

    Abyssinia was supported by Russia, France and Britain, it was hardly an "against all odds" scenario. What is against all odds is Italy actually winning a war.

    A Boer war RPG would be far more interesting in that regard.

    I know.
    You say that as if this somehow eliminates their victory.

    The entire world buys and sells weapons. The entire world is built by support and alliance. WW2 was won with alliances, against alliances.

    THAT IS WHAT CAUGHT THE ITALIANS BY SURPRISE, ISN'T IT.

    Or were you under the impression that I believed the Ethiopian's blackness had been the winning factor? That their curly hair had won the war? Christ man...

    They won because of military. Because of weapons. They didn't shit the weapons out their asses, someone had to provide support, but that's the motherfucking point. Victory IS THE POINT.

    Now, go on, tell me something moronic with obvious racist undertones again.

    You said that you wanted a game where you play against all odds - playing as a country which has the support of the most powerful nations in the world and outnumbers its enemy ten to one isn't that. Sorry to ruin your fantasy about whitey getting btfo against all odds.

    SIGH
    I was refering to _every other country_ on the continent, bringing up Ethiopia as a curiousity because it was THE ONLY EXCEPTION

    how on earth do you deduct that I was refering to THE EXCEPTION as the "challenge" I wanted to try on???

    I interpreted the underlined "as" as you suggesting that we play as Ethiopia.

    And why would I be wanting to play an Africa game exclusively as Ethiopia, and expressedly NOT as ANY of the other countries?

    Explanation time:
    The other countries lost, not because of their blackness, but because of inadequate weaponry against superior technology.
    In other words: No support from countries WITH superior technology.

    Just like Norway falling to Germany having nothing to do with OUR blackness, since we are actually WHITE losing to other WHITE. We lacked something. We lacked numbers, and technology.

    This is what makes strategy interesting to explore. In an "Africa game" I would play as Zululand, against Britain, with spears and cow-skin shields, and LOSE, because it would be a simulation of reality. I can't count on race to win. I need to count on technology, which I would gain - for example - through diplomacy.
    See? For a "SJW" I actually concede that I would have to contant someone white (power!) in order to win.

    Does that make you happy?

    I sometimes forget that you're a literal sperglord.
