Hi, Just wanted to RANT about the RPG Section. I know you have no official stand point on RPG's, but this isn't aimed at you, put the gerneral populas as a whole.
Recently, In the city I dwell in, a young man of 16 killed his parents, and part of his family. The others were wounded and only a sister that was visiting friends was spared injury. Now they are blaming the slaughter on drugs, music, television and anything else they can get their grubby little paws on to blame, except those responsible. Himself, His family, and his teachers. Those are the people who spend the most time with him and should have seen signs of him being unstable. Which , of course, after the fact they say he was very unstable. If you knew, How did you let it get this far?
Anyway, how does this relate to my rant on rpg's? I run an rpg site, and have played for years. I'v played at conventions and with local groups for the past 15 years, and never have I met anyone who took it seriously. We all know the rules by heart , the creatures and landscapes betther than we know our history. None of them have ever snapped and killed anyone. Why? Because it had NOTHING to do with RPG's. Someone who kills someone else has mental issues to deal with. Now some things might trigger a reaction, but its not a cause. Somone weak of mind can be influenced by anything. Even god. And more murders are committed in the lords name than in any other. You do the math.
