Anonymous asked: Then why not do something about it? Having games about bitching about "white" people won't do jack shit. The reason "white", "black", "red", "yellow" and beyond exist is because we as a humanity give these pointless colour terms meaning. So, what good does perpetuating an outdated social idea through your silly game do? If you want to help continue double standards with your post, you're doing a great job at it, buddy.
The crazy thing about both fantasy and science fiction is that they can be used as tools to explore the problems of our own society through many different lenses. Having a setting where everyone is equal and that whole issue is ignored would be the bigger crime, in my eyes. Just replacing racial tensions with orcs vs humans only says one dimensional things about the human condition.
Having more fantasy that isn’t just aryan/norse power fantasies is a really exciting idea to me. Why not a fantasy setting that reflects a different world view of the pre columbian exchange world? Doesn’t that fascinate you?
Thinking about it drives me fucking nuts in the best way possible.
