I really hate the treatment of orcs in the Tal’dorei Campaign Guide

  1. I agree with Matt. Red Dragons are also sentient and 100% evil, but you don’t care because they are not humanoids. It is well established in WOC source material that Orcs are usually evil, so Matt is sticking with it. Take it up with the creators of D&D.

    I dislike how Sanjay is trying to place western values on Orcs. They aren’t acting the way HE sees as right, so they’re poorly written, or are some proxy for some nebulous minority. Orcs live by their own rules, not yours. Don’t assume to speak for them, as they don’t need your white-knight attempts. If you want soft little marshmallow orcs, follow Mr Mercer’s advice and introduce them. That’s the beauty of RPGs… you as DM can portray them any way you please.

    The fact that Sanjay is projecting that veiw on the orcs does show a type of racism , sympathetic or otherwise .It’s making a subjective view not based on the facts of how that culture truely is .Unwarrented sympathy can be just as offensive as aggression .

    Dear Sanjay,

    How do you deal with conflict and death in your campaigns? After all Orcs are sentient creatures that have children, feelings, hopes and dreams. As do all sentient “creatures” in D&D.

    How do you rationalize what amounts to genocide every time your group gets together?

    I think you should stop contributing to the needless deaths of IMAGINARY creatures by having a campaign with no conflict.

    Perhaps if every creature in your world got a “basic income”? Perhaps the dragons should have their wealth redistributed to those in need?

    Please think of all the children left without parents by ruthless adventure! Just say “No” to ever playing the game again, Sanjay.

  5. Dumbest post I have ever seen. Why are you worried about what everyone else is doing or thinking with the campaigns THEY PERSONALLY RUN? Run yours the way you want. Have your High Elves climb in bed with Orcs and have em make beautiful elf/orc babies together and live happily ever after.
