I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

I have gamed with people of all kinds of faiths, including a number of evangelical Christians, and participated in the Christian Gamers Guild, and at no time has anyone ever before this point brought up this complaint. Have you ever actually know someone to object to this on religious grounds or is that theoretical?

comment How do you deal with a player that's determined to play the game in a way that is detrimental to the advancement of the story?
@wraith808 the only "plot" in an RPG is what emerges from the actions of the characters. Presupposition of a plot to "follow" is the genesis of many frustrated GMs. That's for other art forms. #2 is the right answer, so +1!
