Talk:Actual Criminal (5e Background)
From D&D Wiki
Featured Article Nomination
Ok, maybe I'm jumping the gun out of excitement, since it doesn't have a picture yet, but hear me out: I'll draw one for it within the next seven days.
As for the article itself, maybe I'm reading more into it than was intended, but this thing is an excellent work of deconstructionist satire. I had just finished going over the background design guide before reading this, and was floored by the juxtaposition. All that snobby prattling-on I did about how content should encourage cooperation and such, and then this guy goes and underlines how every single part of a core rules background can be corrupted by irresponsible play. Needless to say, I was on the floor in tears. This exemplifies the best of what the April fools tag has to offer. More than just funny, it's smart. --Kydo (talk) 20:50, 13 December 2018 (MST)
- Support: Hilarious, clever, and topical. Need I say more? Quincy (talk) 18:36, 15 December 2018 (MST)
- Oppose: I don't see the humor. The official Criminal background is a great background. This doesn't really give flavor but just asks a bunch of questions? and has an attempt at being comical with the characteristics. If it weren't April Fool's I'd prefer to stub it for being so lackluster. ~ BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:40, 18 December 2018 (MST)
- Oppose: I agree that this comes off as incomplete. The questions make the reader not want to engage with the page, and there are multiple parts which make me wonder "was this not finished, or is it trying to be funny?" April Fools pages should not make me have to think about the page's humor, and a featured article should not have to make me think about what the page should actually be. --Green Dragon (talk) 09:38, 8 January 2019 (MST)
