I keep getting ideas for adventures that raise questions about religion (okay, possibly one in particular) and argue against its accuracy (quite effectively, imho), but I have been hesitant to upload them. "The Tale of the Twelve Officers" is a recent example.

The reason for my hesitancy is that certain folks, whom I respect (not sure if that's mutual anymore) might get upset or offended. Are we all able to agree that if an adventure might potentially upset someone, that someone can simply not play it? Or should I upload these adventures on a different account?

Just leave an appropriate trigger warning, that's all we are going to need. HRmatthew’s Motel of Melora was very controversial because of the use of language, this would have been prevented by a simple message like “(warning: adventure contains adult language).” So I would suggest you do something like that. Uploading it on a separate account seems pointless to me, especially if we know it’s you who is uploaded it anyway.

(btw am I one of these "certain folks?" If you want to talk about that probably best we do it in pms)

Okay, then. It should be pretty obvious from the titles what they're about, anyway. But yeah, I'll issue warnings.

What could be inaccurate about religion?

I hope in 20 years DM’s political adventures saved in a flash drive underneath piles of polystyrene will be the only evidence of the Spore adventures DLC.

Include me in the screencap!

The Zez militants in my mission Xav Village Defense are kinda somewhat (blatantly) based off of radical muslims.

But other than that. I wont have any other controversial adventures.
My next one is going to be a batman spoof called Sixam needs you. (sounds like gotham and it's maxis backwards) But it's far from finished. (it'll probably be done long after the sporum goes down) And his name wont be batman it'll be "NightKnight"

It's time to make Spore great again.
