Hey Story Gamers,
One of my guys requested a game loosely based on fantastical Japan (ala Afro Samurai and to some extent Samurai Jack) so I've started working on a game where you can choose to be a samurai, a ninja, a monk, or a sorceror. It's looking pretty cool so far and last night I got excited about the prospect of sharing it on Story Games. Then I remembered all the fuss that went on a few months ago regarding cultural appropriation and as I much I believe that people can be way too sensitive, I do want to avoid a flame-war.
So, I ask for help. How do you make a game about ninja without being offensive? Sounds like a silly question, but I've seen people getting offended over stuff I never thought would be offensive.
