D&D lets you live out all kinds of fantasies, such as:
-Having everyone call you by your preferred name and gender
-Having a big group of friends who do everything together
-Making a reasonable wage as a freelancer
-Being able to murder the terrible leadership of your country
-Getting 8 hours of sleep

@jacethechicken These are all legit points.

As a DM, it is my duty to ensure that the world is free of normalised bigotry, and has plenty of opportunities to resolve challenges in a variety of ways.

Also an interesting variety of peoples with practical and understandable (if not necessarily logical) agendas.

And occasionally push my players kink buttons, because I'm mean.


@wyrddrgn my current campaign is kinda a dreary place TBH -- it's basically a hypercapitalist hellscape modeled after the Wild West and Industrial Revolution, and all of my characters are pretty flawed at best. But in happier campaigns I deffo try to keep it Not Too Real lol

@jacethechicken When I GM warhammer 40k, it suddenly gets much less grim and much more LGBT positive.

But currently my Sunday D&D group are in a city which is pretty much monster ankh morpork. Ruled by a lich, a dragon, and a demon. And they're currently doing odd jobs for the hairless, tattooed, tabaxi woman who runs the bath house... who my wife's paladin has a serious blushy crush on.
