I play between Rated PG-13 and Rated R games.

That goes for both violence and sexual themes.

Kill a guy? Sure. Seduce a barmaid? Fade to black.

Rape a woman and cut off her head while you're fucking her into order to induce death spasms to make you cum?

Nah.
>>
In most normal games?
Where the players engage in murder, torture or other actions of a similar degree of heinousness for either no apparent reason, or for a woefully inadequate reason.

Magical realm still holds a reasonably agreed upon definition.

General the insertion of very specific fetishes/sexual fantasies into a setting for no reason other than to scratch your own itch.

These are actually legitimate concepts though. You just dislike the fact that people dislike those things.

Just because "furry" is an old meme doesn't make something not furry when it is...

You're literally saying "nothing can be edgy" "nothing can be autistic" and "nothing can be SJW". These terms exist SPECIFICALLY BECAUSE these are common themes and tropes that DO exist.

No, they are kinda right. They WERE legitimate concepts, but people began using them for broader and broader definitions until they just became insults for "anyone who dislikes what I like or vice versa"
>>
>>43454776

Wouldn't that just be a case of "that's not actually edgy though"? Seems smarter to go that route than just go "hurr edgy doesn't exist anymore because people overused it". Same with "epic".

I liked this series when it first came out, because for some reason I thought the character design looked pretty decent, but the more I read it the cornier and more childishly edgy it gets. Also the art and design isn't even that good compared to high quality seinen art.

I think I was just tricked by the lion girls' boobs.

>where do you guys draw the line for what's too edgy for your games?
As a GM:
Is it making the other players uncomfortable in a way they can't deal with as peers, or directly interfering with everyone else's ability to play the game? If so, you've gone too far. If not.. well, karma will out.
I'm not gonna "rocks fall" you, but I will make your actions have consequences. You've got a rep for giving to the poor? You might get free information from them, or help in an hour of need. Rape the barmaid? She's probably got cousins. Eventually, one or several of them will catch up to you. Murder all the prisoners you take? Eventually everyone winds up paralyzed or otherwise helpless... Likewise, you rob enough churches and the gods themselves might start interfering. Of course, the same goes for busting up cults or regicide.

At the same time, I'm not going to shit on the murder-happy Rogue, because this is the kind of game he clearly wants to play. He's just going to have to be very careful about his sleeping arrangements. Hell, some of my best games have involved "edgy" characters who were actually working at minimizing the consequences of their actions - at that point, it's an intellectual duel.

TL,DR: if it's something that is directly interfering with the >players<, or involves someone deliberately going beyond the limits we set at the beginning of the game, I'll intervene directly.
Otherwise, it's just part of us building the game world as we play, and I treat it as such.
>>
>>43454776
I don't think that's true for either SJW or magical realm.
>>
>>43455053
I caught it when the dub started airing on Idort Swim recently and I like the fact that pretty much every character, no matter how minor and background, has a unique design to them. I cannot tell yet if the edginess has crossed over into just plain goofy.

It starts on goofy, but eventually it's just boring.
>>
>>43457184

One of the only two best girls gets killed early on (that ara ara glasses bitch with the scissors) and then best girl leone gets her boobs sliced off and best homobro magatama gets shattered core. I didn't even like Lebe or whatever the string guy's name was but his death and ball crushing torture was bullshit.

Stopped reading there. It's a shit series that just kills off everyone for shock value and edginess's sake. Lightning tonfa no bullshit general guy is pretty cool though.
>>
>>43457236
Maybe I'll just stop then.

I'm surprised that >>43454107 has not attempted what >>43454249 describes yet. Nero is a fucking monster.

You can read it as a sort of guilty pleasure. Sort of like reading people's Sonic characters or reading Mary Sue cringe material. Or reading Goblins.

Nero:
>raped a little ways away from the man she loves, drives her into despair, and hunts her down specifically when everything goes to shit
>stumbled upon bandits raping a girl, and was disappointed when she was killed by his teammate because he wanted to have fun too
>is fucking balls off the walls sadistic, doing that shitty tongue out of the mouth "this is so fucking good" face when killing people and destroying dreams
>ensures the only person able to stop the virus turning humans into killing machines can't do shit and carries them around to watch the destruction

The manga isn't fully translated, but this is the gist of his "character". It is my only hope that one day Caim will kill him for what he's done.
>>
>>43454107
There's nothing too edgy for my games.
The only consequence of excessive edge is the PC inadvertently bisecting itself when I tell the player to cut it out.
>>
Is it edgy to play an edge character who's actually delusional or has some other non-edgy quality?
>>
>>43459707
Depends on the execution.
The way I imagine it, it just becomes a non-edgy subversion or parody of the concept.
>>
>>43459773
Dunno. For a Shadowrun 5e campaign I wanted to play a super edgy blind traditionalist Japanese Oni samurai who thinks he must regain his honour to restore his eyesight, when he's actually a third generation immigrant with bad genes and the grandfather that moved to UCAS in the first place is a freedom loving baseball coach that thinks his grandson is a bloody lunatic.
>>
>>43459800
Huh. I suppose that's still edgy, no matter the justification.

Well when someone reduces themselves to 0.01 essence they're not exactly all there as it is, giving that someone a katana, a strict set of principals, very twitchy reflexes and the inability to tell a mugger running at you with a knife from someone trying to return your wallet can be difficult, messy, and a shootout with the cops waiting to happen. What I'm trying to say is maybe the whole thing could be de-edgified if everyone on the team knew you were a crazy liability but only kept you around because you're great at causing trouble when pointed in the right direction.
