Americans think living in a socialist police state is normal, but freedom is not some textbook theory.
There are still some Americans alive today who will tell you that freedom is better.
Sensitive Masters and Wheelchair Accessible Torture Chambers: Dungeons & Dragons in the Culture War Era. It is fair to compare what they are doing to the Satanist moral panic that the D&D community experienced in the 1980s and 90s. by Chipit in RPG

Well if you investigate there's actually a ton of evidence for it.
How to Run a 17 person Savage Worlds Game and Live To Tell The Tale. The Yard Moose Mountain Mega Shooting Weekend, where I had shooters coming to my place for three days of pistol training, about how one night I ran a one off RPG session for them, and by some miracle it actually turned out good. by Chipit in RPG

A lot of older campaign games had fairly large groups, but it's hard to manage without people who are, well, wargamer autists. If you can't trust everyone to know the rules, track the minutia of their property and equipment honestly, and take turns reporting their intent in an orderly manner, it's really difficult to run a game like OD&D with more than 3 people (which also means all dungeons are fatal).
The funny thing is that the Gnostics were basically wishful thinkers, and the Demiurge and demons of darkness rule the only world that exists.
You're 1000% right about nature and evolution.
But you're more wrong to support it.
I look forward to a day when all this reality crap is over. It's clearly some sick game or experiment for evil beings' entertainment, and I feel like an idiot for taking so long to even question the existence set before me.
WAKE UP NEO.
Furthermore, some comment on there talks about how assuming all orcs are bad is parallel to real life racism. I don't give a shit about racism in real life, you want me to care about it in your fucking fictional world? And it's not parallel to 'racism', it's called the Friend/Enemy distinction, something shitlibs understand even though they pretend dumbocracy and tolerance are magic salves to make everyone allies. They're obviously contradicting themselves with their relentless war on everyone who isn't a retarded commie faggot. It's OK to hate some people for who they are, and it's okay to invent fictional races who are all evil. It's okay to mistrust entire races in real life because you don't think the potential payoff of talking to young black men is worth the risk of being robbed. Nobody has an obligation to like anyone else, and hatred is normal and a useful evolutionary feature. These little democracy cultists midwits hate evolutionary psychology, because it tells you that sexism, racism and all kinds of other badthoughts are ineradicable and probably useful to the people who practice them.
Altruism is a fantasy created by liars. Equality is a meaningless buzz word. And I am more interested in whether the person I'm buying books from is a good editor than what he feels about Jews. The only person's feelings I really give a shit about are mine, everyone else can take a number and wait for me to care.
WotC Makes DM Regulations For Non-White NPCs in D&D. Thank goodness that #wotc gives us D&D Dungeon Masters their "permission" to play characters of other cultures, For Now. BUT only if we follow their Wokist standards. by Chipit in RPG
Also, any time you're anywhere and someone uses words like 'toxic' to mean anything other than poison, if you even get to the point where people are telling us 'what we're comfortable with', I'm already checked out. I don't have a lot of graphic child molestation in my game, and I don't want to play with people who have to be told that. Otherwise, anything I write offends you, fuck you, I want you to leave. I'm not so desperate to retain random players (or friends) that I'm going to craft my fucking fantasy world to avoid what makes you cry. Go make your own shitty game and run it into the ground, I am glad you told me that my game triggered you because it stereotypes orcs, because now I know you're a fucking faggot I can block on my phone.
I make fantasy worlds to be exactly what I want, if people like it they can play; if not, I don't care if they get hit by a bus and catch AIDS in the hospital.
I don't tolerate even normie levels of PC, no way in Hell I'm going to stay in the same room with some douchecunt fagtard who's telling me about cultural sensitivity and shit. I hope ISIS takes over where they live and throws them off a building.
What are the greatest RPGs that you've ever played? by Otacon in RPG
RPGs don't exist, in that 'role playing' has very different roles and meaning in different games and contexts.
Pre2e D&D is a tabletop war game that includes role-playing as a strategic element. It's great at that. When it tries to be other things, it becomes inadequate or just wrong, and people should just play another game. If you want to spend all session writing backstory and getting into the character's headspace, if you want to be a superhero, just stop breaking D&D to try to make it what you want and play another game.
Old-style dungeon/hex crawl D&D is one of my favorite games, but you really won't find many people to play it correctly except old men who like John Tiller PC games.
Burning Wheel is a great RPG for allowing characters to really drive the story without making them superOP. It also doesn't care about gay feelz-based issues like 'balance'. However, for it to be any good, your players have to be people who could be a good dungeon master. The rules are complex, the game doesn't work right if you don't follow them, and it requires a lot of pro-active behavior on the part of players.
GURPS is awesome as a system, especially if you like crunchy real-worldy simulation style games. GURPS, however, is awful if you have a bunch of people who just want to make 700 point anime characters or have no ability to be creative. GURPS characters depend on a lot of limits set by GMs, and by intelligent investment by the player; when people try to make it the 'anything RPG' where people make 'whatever they want' it ends up a complete trash fest.
Basically, I want a game whose rules actually accomplish a certain set of tasks well, and I need players who have the IQ and tastes to properly utilize that system. I can enjoy just about any RPG with the right people, and the games I like the best usually entails players who are comfortable with logistics and math.
Just don't interact with normies. If someone uses terms like 'toxic' or complains about the ethnic parallels of various monsters you just tell them to commit suicide and block them. Anyone who finds it offensive is also an SJW faggot who you want to stay away from you.
Most players today suck and want to be entertained by the DM like a personal dancing monkey, so there's no point in bothering with them anyway.
Basically, anyone that isn't a politically incorrect wargamer nerd isn't someone I'd want to be around. Make a point to emphasize that players have to keep track of their characters, read the rule books, and that they aren't Main Characters or snowflakes, and these people will just have a seizure and post angry denouncements on your LFP advertisement. Then you can block them and anyone who agrees with them. These people can play with each other and pretend to be faggots and owls all they want, but I'm going to personally insult them if they talk to me.
I'm still annoyed that everyone threw a fit about Bob Bledsaw naming the Jew. Who gives a shit. I don't care if he's completely wrong, what the fuck does some dudes' political opinion have to do with 40 year old modules written by his fucking grandfather?
Anyway, if I meet someone with woke opinions I just stop talking to them. They would never manage to sneak into my games. I will play with actual commies and Nazis as long as they can shut the fuck up and play my fantasy game. But if they want to turn every game into a faggot fest or a stormfront flame war, that's a problem.
I really don't give a shit about actual racism. People have a right to hate anyone they want, and I hate plenty of people, such as SJWs, enough to hope they die. Kasimir is actually too politically correct for me, but that's probably because I am a nihilist more than a conservative.

Alright, I'm super excited to be here, and glad this is one of the first things I'm running into.
"Greatest" is a really broad umbrella which just means you've given me an excuse to be super wordy.
I cut my teeth on Shadowrun, and I still have a lot of affection for the background, but I haven't played for years. I'd love to try again though, depending on which rules were being used--my dream would be somebody putting together a Savage Worlds port that I liked, or completing my own.
My favorite system right now is Savage Worlds--I admit I kind of like generic systems, my prior favorite was GURPS and I still have a ton of GURPS books lying around--which isn't to say I think it can do anything... But it can pull of a surprising variety, usually without much work if you know what you're doing. It's pretty much the system I've been looking for my whole life, it 'ticks all my boxes' for how I think an RPG 'should' work.
That said, I have had an awful lot of fun with Feng Shui, too. Only ran FS2 for one short campaign, and it didn't work out as well as I would have liked, but my friends and I had lots of good times over the years with FS1, including one campaign that stranded the crew of the original Enterprise in the Netherworld.
Greatest overall, I'd have to go with Savage Worlds, it's just my favorite and I think it will be for a long time yet.

I was probably going to just have a lot of useful links. Map making tools, lfg sites, maybe important forums. But I've gotten waaaay sidetracked on the wiki

A rudementary list of some rpg's would be nice.
What do you plan on putting in the wiki?
