The woke Armageddon staff team continues on its vibrant word policing into 2020. Just as the word "necker" was deemed too problematic in relation to the forbidden n-word, so too has our gaggle of generous griots determined that the term "Gypsy" is not to be used for the Tan Muarki; oh, and they're coming back, by the way.
This role call was posted May 2nd, drawing in much speculation.
And today the 7th, the following staff decree hath been made.
Distrust them! Persecute them! Murder and Corrupt and Betray them! But GOD FORBID we call them Gypsies, no -- that's too far. We wouldn't want any of the gypsies that play Armageddon to get offended. Or, for that matter, all of the outrageously WOKE personas that get offended on behalf of others. For our next move, I suggest banning the term "stump" for dwarves; and replaicng it with "vertically challenged". And gith should be outright removed, as woke culture has determined that savage and raiding races such as orcs are a cruel stereotype of black people.
Despite peer-reviewed academics citing studies that 'racism' in media doesn't produce 'racism' in reality, the brilliant and eminent minds of the Armageddon staff team have decreed that this word — gypsy — is no longer to be uttered. Unfortunate allusions to reality. I suppose the sorcerer-kings themselves should be removed from Armageddon: Tektolnes's and Muk Utep's insistence on the master human race reminds me of the fascistic brownshirt persecution of Nazi Germany. The man in the high castle / pyramid is Hitler! And Templars are merely the SS. The Magickers are persecuted, hunted down and forced to wear black gems in the south or outright euthanized in the north — reminds you of a certain Final Solution, doesn't it? We must police the thoughts and minds of our playerbase with vocabulary limitation, or else Armageddon is going to churn out generation after generation of radicalized fascists! Staff, I am available for the producer role whenever you're prepared to disappear Nessalin for his historical participation in these thought-crimes.
