lock Card name change suggestion

17 Jul 2018 00:38 #88887 by self biased
while sorting some new acquisitions, I came across the card "Gypsies." Given how that's basically a super offensive racial slur, can we please change the name? this isn't the mid 90's anymore. we wouldn't use other offensive and derogatory terms to name cards, and we shouldn't use Gypsy or its derivatives.

The card's bad enough that it's sort of self-banning.

According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, "Gypsy" sometimes has an offensive meaning. That is, not always.

www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/gypsy

Gypsy

1 : sometimes offensive : a member of a traditionally itinerant people who originated in northern India and now live chiefly in south and southwest Asia, Europe, and North America
2 : romany (the Indo-Aryan language of the Gypsies)

Unbelievable... What will be next? We have more male vampires then female, so let's equalize sexes? Do we have enough races represented among the crypt cards? Do we have under-age vampires? Is this cardgame homophobic because we do not have openly gay crypt cards?

I firmly believe that this suggestion has nothing to do with good will, only one person's wordwide-pushed agenda on picking on racial stuff and feel satisfied about correcting it where it has nothing to do with racism, racial slurs or anything of the sort whatsoever.
