Anon submission:

I am very anti-rape and anti-rape culture and at the age of 11 I was featured in ms. Magazine for being an advocate. I was raised by lesbian mothers. And yet people still treat me like an idiot and say I just don’t understand when I talk about feminism and serious issues because I am “only a kid”. I am 13 years old and taking college courses. I have done my fucking research on these issues and know more about it then any jerky little rape apologist middle school straight white boy (shudder). So I just don’t understand why these people can applaud my mind on school subjects and call me a “genius” but the minute I change the topic to a more serious issue I’m “only a kid” and I “don’t know what I’m talking about” I love this blog btw

That’s it, WE CAN ALL GO HOME NOW. There won’t ever be a better graphic that summarizes sexist double standards in today’s geek culture.
THIS IS OUR CULTURE IN A NUTSHELL.

How to block Sponsored Posts on your Dashboard

Tumblr has recently introduced Sponsored Posts. These posts can come from anyone, regardless of whether or not you follow them, and are primarily for advertising. If you want to block them, simply install Tumblr Savior and blacklist “sponsored_badge_icon” (without the quotes).

Oh wow OK let’s please signal boost this because some recent ones have been GIFs of horror and so on, and that makes Tumblr incredibly unsafe for a good amount of people. S:

Ok more experienced D&D DMs on tumblr, I need your advice.

I have a PC who was Lawful Good but he got shifted to Chaotic Good. Ironically he follows my homebrew goddess of order, law, and justice. He wants to role play as a character who hates all other gods but his. And by now I’ve decided that that’s fine and reasonable enough.

But lately he has his character acting a little more irrationally. Trying to smash a quest item because it wouldn’t give him a nice bonus like it did another PC because she got to it first and putting things in the hands of statues and knocking them out before yelling at them. 

I tried to tell him that this will shift him to Chaotic Neutral if he continues, but he says that he has to act more evil before he can shift there. I believe, if he’s just doing whatever the heck he wants, then that’s not Chaotic Good and therefore he’s going to end up shifting, even if he’s not doing acts of evil. 

What do you think I should do? 

Alright so here’s the deal. Your players need to understand that Alignment Shifting is a really big deal, and USUALLY you can only slide one tile on either axis at a time. A huge traumatic event can make a character snap and it can (rarely) be hand-waved that he can go more than one.

From your description of this, it doesn’t seem to be the case that he went through a huge traumatic shift, and sounds more like lazy roleplaying. (Me as a DM, I’d only allow this if 2 or more of his teammates died, or something happened to shatter his faith.)

And he needs to understand that Neutral Anything doesn’t mean “equal parts good and evil.” Chaotic Neutral especially tends to be prone to listening to his emotions, letting his anger get the better of him, or showing apathy for how his actions affect people in or outside of his group. His actions are not Chaotic Good, they’re Chaotic Neutral at best. One can even argue for Chaotic Evil, but I don’t think anything can justify that big of an alignment shift.

You as the DM need to give his actions consequences. Don’t go out of your way to punish him, but let him know that his newfound selfish attitude can get him and his party in a heap of trouble… The other PC’s may take justice into their own hands if this gets out of hand, and dispose of him somehow.

You’re right, it probably is more lazy role playing than anything. By the time he was doing the smashing and shouting, we were winding down to the end of the night. But he still insisted that this was what he was doing in character so I did tell him that he was going to shift.

I think part of the problem is that none of us really understood just how big a thing shifting alignment would be. And I agree that it is a pretty big deal, so come next game, I am going to tell them so and hopefully they’ll be more aware that it’s not just a thing that affects how they role play, but that there are going to be farther reaching effects.

Thanks for your help!

No problem, I’m always happy to help.

Just got to be dilligent, because small bouts of lazy roleplaying tends to get bigger and bigger until the group you’ve started with only cares about the loot they get and how much it buffs their stats. Once you reach a certain point, there’s no turning back up that slippery slope.

Another pitfall I’ve seen the DM of one of my groups fall into is allowing goofiness to get out of hand. Once one player starts making dick jokes about how the dungeon setup looks, in or out of character, the mood you’ve been trying to create is shattered and there’s not much you can do to stop it at that point. (This specific group has me, a Ranger, and my friend, an Elven Ranger, who because the DM used modern annoying slang to describe how an NPC was speaking, shot the NPC dead. 2bad4us, that was the questgiver.)
