We're currently updating the site and a few things may run slow or not as expected at the moment. Give us a day or two to get everything sorted out and changed up if you would.

One of the new things you'll see about are the 'sticky notes' which you will occasionally see from the site Admins if something important shows up or is newsworthy, or if you happen to be in one of our many beta testing groups giving you an additional heads up when something new needs to be looked at or sorted.

You can send these amongst yourselves as well if you wish, just don't abuse it. 

Thanks for your patience!

I used overwatch as a single example to support that other games have gone through the same situation. I'm not defending the game from not including gay characters, I'm defending people trying to change what writers write. We don't have full control, but companies do tend to pander to people who spout enough, and there is where I have an issue.

I'm just going to head out and hopefully let this die out. I wish you all a good day.

But, that's what people always do about every topic. Like, people communicate likes and dislikes to content creators. If I say "I'd like to see more stories features Von Schill" would you think that's me trying to dictate what the writers write to? Would you be calling me out on it?

I wonder if Gatreaux Bokor will now forever be known as the model they forced onto the game because people were hoping for new voodoo themed Gremlins :P

Often times, it plays out something like this:

Fans: "We want more voodoo Gremlins in the game!"

Designers:  "Oh, that would be cool, wouldn't it?"

 

Just because the fans want something doesn't mean that it's forced on us. We're fans, too. :P

And yet my insistence on more the Mountain Goats references goes unanswered. You're tearing me apart Mason ;_;

Haha! Marcus needs a goat! It could be frozen heart or a domesticated guild mascot. More goats for the people!

Now that you say it...that would be kind of awesome.  Maybe unimpeded with a push trigger on its melee attack and a :+fate to damage on the charge.  Dammit, mountain goats would be so cool.  :mellow:

"Later that very same day 7 new models with goat theme, one for each faction, were added to the game in the short 'Got Goat?' Malifaux 2E expansion. Then... the 'LGBT characters?' thread exploded."

From the book Memories of a Forum Survivor, chapter 8 - Good god, got goat?

Create a new master: a trans shepherd. With a herd full of goats, each different and one for each faction.

Something like the meadow seven

Wow, that actually sounds ridiculously cool!  I'd love it if they did that in the movie series... highly doubt it though!

Thanks!

As has been brought up multiple times in this thread, there's no forcing happening here, and there are already canonically gay characters (and at least one Master), so...

No need for intellectual dishonesty. You know very well that he's not suggesting people are putting a gun to a developers head and "forcing" them. He's suggesting people are attempting to cohere designers to do something that they may not want to do for the purpose of pleasing a select few. The squeaky wheel gets the grease.  Some are just here to point out that the wheel doesn't need greasing.

It's intellectually dishonest to assume when he explicitly used the word forced that he meant it? Ok.

Maybe you should take your own intellectual dishonesty advice. ;)

I, and others interested in having less ambiguous LGBT characters, aren't trying to coerce the writers into anything.  I'm just expressing my desire to see LGBT characters.

The Red Rising trilogy does it quite well.  There are a few characters who are unambiguously LGBT but are introduced as such very subtly.  I felt more connected and immersed in the world as a result.  While the world is fictional, it seems more based in reality.  It also means a lot to me to see an LGBT character.   Regardless, it is 100% possible to have a well written character who happens to be LGBT in a way that is clearly stated, unambiguous, yet subtle.  That's all I'm asking.  If the writers don't want to do it, then that's fine.
