Sorry, but your book is just drowning in political correctness. Never stereotype, can't have any differences between male and female, must agree on everything and do everything togeather, talk evil brutes trying to kill you into submission, etc., etc. Really detracts from the rules when you preach political correctness on nearly every page.

Thank you for the kind review! I\'m glad you noticed we\'ve baked the time-honored best practice of communicating with and respecting everyone in the gaming group right into the rules in the form of the Game Charter. This helps set everybody\'s expectations in the group, and is particularly helpful to new gaming groups just getting to know each other. We\'re very proud of this innovation, and strongly think that it will help set the tone for many great games of Forthright. And thank you also for bringing up what we feel is one of the strongest selling points of the ruleset: the ability to talk down violent opponents and potentially even befriend them. There are lots of great game systems out there which turn all a party\'s enemies into slavering monsters needing to be slain. We wanted to try a different approach with Forthright, in that we provide players the OPTION of talking down enemies IN ADDITION to the (more obvious) option of killing them. We were inspired to include this by several animes, tv shows, movies and traditional roleplayers telling us they wished for options to do exactly that.
