Harshlands is probably the next biggest RPI, and doesn't have that problem at all. Its rules on sexual RP is similar to Armageddon's, so maybe Harshlands just has a healthier community? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Arx has a robust set of rules on the matter, generally forbids public displays of sex since it's considered taboo by the IC culture, and publicizes its bans, so there is an element of public shame for rulebreakers and accountability for staff there that generally seems to keep the community healthy, too.

Ironically, Kronibas has been playing the game since all these conversations. I dont know if right now, but definitely across the last few years.
I haven’t played in right at a year (since November 2018), mostly because I’ve been living in a fucking yurt way out in the Rocky Mountains without a computer and working a lot.
I gotta admit that I still read these forums pretty regularly because, well, I spent a lot of my fucking time thinking about this game.
Now that I have some distance and my shit together a little bit better, I would still maintain that tons of bogus shit went down which entirely justified a lot of the discussions that have happened.
Dialogue is helpful, right? Personally, I feel like that’s the way to go. I hope people continue putting their energy into that sorta deal because, if it’s true that fake accounts are being made merely for slander’s sake, well... i just don’t think that’s the best way to skin this cat.

grumble: A hater, complaining about haters, who aren't really haters.

grumble: I mean, there's no hate to it. If a bunch of people come forward with complaints like these, you can't just blame the victims.

grumble: If, as an effect of being revealed, it drives people away from the game, it's not the truth's fault. The truth is the truth. If you don't like the truth, then change the situation to suit the narrative in your head.

Jeshin: I've noticed there is a habit of dehumanizing this board and people who bring complaints as haters, goblins, toxic, etc etc. Yet there is normally very little dehumanization here of staff or players. Or is there

grumble: Fucking dehumanize the world. We're all animals and we do dumb shit. There is nothing divine about humanity. That said, we have standards.
