This thread gave me an idea. Since we don’t seem to be having a revolution any time soon, I thought it would be fun to make up an ideology based RPG that could be played in threads. It might be a cathartic way to get over sectarian infighting, and could help educate newcomers on different ideologies / text formatting / dice rolling / input fields, so that we won’t have so many people that coming from twitter / reddit / youtube that don’t know how to operate an imageboard machine. It would also prove that we are more fun than Holla Forums. We could do a weekly thread with a campaign and rotate through DMs.
I started making up classes very loosely based on D&D. My idea was to have each group of classes be made up of ideological opponents who nevertheless have something in common: hence Non-Social Anarchists with Italian Left communists (too smart for democracy), and Ansyns with Tankies (existing socialism). Snowflake ideologies can use hybrid classes.
Here is what I have so far. Give suggestions, criticism, etc. I'll type up a handbook once we figure everything out.
Mages (Anti-Bureaucracy, Books ‘n Shit, Gets to cast spells)
Market Anarchists: Merchant Sorcerers
Wizard: Italian Left Communists (Bordigists)
Warriors (Existing Socialism)
Heavy Swordsman: Marxist-Leninists
Light Swordsman: Anarcho-Communists and Anarcho-Syndicalists
Paladins: ==NAZBOL== - Warrior/Spellcaster Hybrid - Divine Magic - Fights to appease NazBol gods
Classes Needed (Ranger, Bard, Rogue and are all available)
Communalist (Monk perhaps?)
Orthodox Marxists (DeLeonists can be a hybrid between this and Light Swordsman)
Dutch Leftcoms/Council Communists
Hegelian Marxism (AW should get to pick this one if he so chooses)
Social Democrats / Reformists
Christian / Muslim / Theistic Socialists
