#NOTALLROLEPLAYERS: A HISTORY OF RAPEY DUNGEON MASTERS
I wonder just how common this Mary Sue the Rapist NPC phenomenon really is. Certainly it's a gruesome psychological pattern among the guys who sit behind the screen. I don't recall ever inserting an idealized version of myself into the game. At least not for any sort of sexual ideation/gratification purposes. Sounds more like bedroom roleplay, but to each his own I guess. The girl's response -- quitting the campaign -- was totally appropriate. The article's subtext -- that D&D should be absolutely free of any political incorrectness or male wish-fulfillment fantasy -- is hamfisted and misses the whole spirit of the game. Like it or not, D&D did begin as a boy's club. Robert E. Howard is in its DNA.
