And ditto about almost saying it in IM/IRL. Embarrassing. :oops:

worstperson wrote:Tolkien created a pretty cool fantasy world and a detailed fantasy setting at a time in which nobody really had one so definitive to set the standard.

But it was populated with characters that by most standards are shallow, a sense of ethics too strongly influenced by religion and outright bigotry. Most importantly, it should be stressed that a world like the one he created is actually kind of boring to roleplay in.

Taking the fantasy structure he created and building something more realistic and interesting from it is the blueprint a game like this should strive for - not a ridiculous adherence to the writer's most glaring shortcomings.
I'll do the other side of the unpopular opinion. Not all of us see the idealism as a shortcoming and enjoy roleplaying such things and if you don't like the world as portrayed, you can go somewhere else. :p

When this character dies, I'm going to roll a character in the other sphere.

Here's an unpopular opinion: I should get to have my bad-ass Koalafarm Dwarf back and spam-kill stuff and spam-smith, outdoing everyone while bragging about it in the classic dwarven fashion. j/k
