“Are their stories somehow irrelevant?”

December 10, 2019

Jeff Rients has a question for the community!

Are testimonials of the women who support Zak somehow irrelevant, or is it that they were weighed and compared against what Mandy and other women reported and readers’ individual experiences, and about a billion people who interacted with Zak recognized horrifying commonalities of behavior in how Mandy and her supporters reported being treated by Zak and the treatment the readers experienced first hand from Zak? Bullying, aggression, manipulation, terrifying shifts in mood, bad faith argumentation and all those other things Jeff characterizes as “X behavior that [they] don’t like.” Gosh, why don’t people like being treated like that?

Jeff didn’t even see any abuse in that “tiny sliver” of life he glimpsed in the background and says that’s “odd.” I wonder if Jeff’s colleagues at Temple thought it was “odd” that the women Bill Cosby preyed on at the university seemed fine at the time? What a bunch of oddballs, those abuse victims!

What seems odd to me is that Jeff has a dumb take and bad choice in friends and now his poor wife has been drawn in, patrolling the comments section for heretics. Jesus Christ, Jeff, don’t get your family smeared with Zak’s shit…

“Maybe I’m wrong to still be Zak’s friend. But I am.” Cool, bruh. Zak has succeeded in getting some disinfectant sprayed on his brand. Looking forward to the Zak + Jeff Kickstarter in 2020 Q1!


YDIS Classifieds — Looking for an Author

November 11, 2019
Chaalt - Copy

That’s “Cha’alt” with an apostrophe in the middle and no space and also don’t capitalize the second “a”

Is Prince of Nothing too busy to help a brother out, or does Venger regard his literary talents as insufficient for so weighty a task? I hope the author Venger-izes his/her/eir name, Lareth BeelzebubĀ  maybe?

If you think you have the chops for this, reply in comments with your name, CV and social security number and I’ll forward an application.


Okay, I’m Back on Gail Gygax’s Fucking Team

March 7, 2019

This article is a friggin’ hoot. Gail is a legit psycho and I feel for the poor Deputy Fifes up there in Wisco who have to endlessly shoo noisy cats out of her alley and pretend to file reports about sinister imaginary Smoking Men parked out front.

But I’m back on her team because she’s upfront about not wanting to be around fumbledick Tenkar and his creepy stalking. He’s up to his usual crybaby bullshit, pissing his diaper that the article’s one-sided after he refused to cooperate and took a shit on the reporter. This fat-assed dope is just pissed that he’s not allowed to monetize the links about him in her article.

And Gail’s got beef with Franky Panky! That Wookie-browed son of a bitch actually billed her for photocopies, maybe he’s not lying about being desperate for damn pennies.

I hope Gail has a few more spurious lawsuits left in her quiver and tosses one at Tenkar, one at Frank, and one at whoever keeps booby trapping her garden. I also hope she sticks to her guns with that godawful Gary statue, the one that looks like something a retarded kid would build out of Duplo blocks. It’s exactly what Gary would have wanted.

wtf is this horseshit

“Excuse me, but did you just ASSUME my anal circumference potential?!?!?”

November 15, 2018

Recruiting for a new play-by-post campaign, this will be a Vornheim city-crawl using the F.A.T.A.L. rule set and with custom classes drawn from Brony fandom. Apply in the comments section with a one-sentence bio for your character and roll your own areola diameter + hue.


Frank’s having his fun, which is all that matters, but Grim Jim Isn’t?!?!?

the last thing you see before the darkness closes in on your soul



Can someone show me a 70-year-old white dude with a pony tail who’s NOT a skeeve, I mean come on. That stringy mop + penny dreadful goatee combo is like a neon sign that says, “Do you wanna play Summon the Amphibious Ones with Grampa Touchy?”

This sad dick, gross old shit is full of humor of the “laugh-at-him-not-with-him” variety:


please look at meeeeee!!!!

thx nah


Looks like poor Eleven has another monster stalking her!

The flip side of this gutter nickel is Grim Jim, who’s apparently sick and fucking tired of all you slutty bitches grinding your pussies in his lap and goddamn cougars playing with his luscious hair. For reals, his lament (including thoughtful background music) begins at about the 7-minute mark:



These two douches remind us of one eternal truth, “It’s hard out there for a muthafuckin pimp!!!” (I’m too scared to see what Sexy Alexi is up to these days…!)


Gail Gygax Announces Artist for Memorial Statue, Work to Begin Shortly

July 16, 2017

Guys, I finally scooped Tenkar’s Tampon (Ha! Ha ha!). Gail Gygax contacted me directly to make the announcement that she’s chosen an artist for the Gary Gygax Memorial Statue of Gary Gygax. I know you’re all dying to know about the next stage of development of this exciting tribute to the creator of roleplaying games, here’s what she sent:

Dear YDIS, I write you today not to talk about the exquisite firmness of your buttocks, which exceed in all meaningful ways the flabby and pockmarked bottom of Kent. After much deliberation and a search that literally scoured the globe, I have chosen an artist to create a likeness to celebrate Gary and his accomplishments for all eternity. I have chosen… Scrap Princess!

The reasons for choosing Scrap Princess I think you’ll agree are obvious. The amazing talent stands out head and shoulders above her contemporaries. When I asked her initial thoughts about the form a statue to Gary might take, after several weeks of work she returned to me with this masterpiece:

gary at play with the world

It’s gorgeous! And to think it only took 2 months for Scrap Princess to draft this masterpiece. But she wasn’t satisfied and she’s actually forwarded several other concepts for consideration:

gary's creativity

A new Michelangelo in Wisconsin! Also this:

the lord gary christ

Amazing Scrap Princess, simply amazing. And another Scrap Princess color original:

beautiful gary

Bravo! Scrap’s artistry really captures Gary’s love of life.

There’s so much to love here, it may take us awhile to select a finalist. I’m leaning toward the red & blue scribble, which I think is not only exquisite artwork but also dramatically showcases Scrap Princess’s style and true talent. I expect this statue will rival the antiquities of Renaissance Italy and launch an artistic revival that may heal our fractured world. Sincerely yours, GG

This is exiting! I’m glad Gail has made a choice that dips into the deep talent pool of the OSR to honor the origins of the hobby. Looking forward to work beginning soon.

Check this shit out.

Haha DAMN SON! Good to see someone is keeping the flame lit, unlike my sad, sorry ass.

EDIT: Asslexis is drawing web comics?!?!? Zowie, I picked the wrong year to stop sniffing glue.

Open Letter to the OSR + Story Gamers (Inclusion MEGAThread)

July 27, 2016

Hey guys, sorry for the long wait between posts. I’m glad I took a little time off though because recent hubbubs have really made me start to think about building bridges instead of walls. There’s a lot going back and forth right now between OSR people and storygamers (so far the legitimate cosplayers and LARPers have stayed on the sidelines).

I’m an OSR guy but I’ve been lurking Tumblr for a couple days now to get a sense of how the other side thinks. And guess what, guys? They’re not so different from you and me. They like to use their imaginations to play games, just like we do.

So how about we start building some bridges right here? I’m going to start a play-by-post OSR game here on the ol’ blog and everyone’s invited! This is a chance for the OSR people to meet some story gamers, and for the story gamers to see we’re not all a bunch of jerks like Zak S. or Pundit or Scott Driver. Or Varg.

I want to give everyone a chance to tell THEIR STORY within this game, so there will be many chargen options available. Let’s start simple: if you are interested in playing, please browse the following tables and reply with your character race, class, gender identity, ableism context and religion. Thank you and I look forward to a real opportunity to meet new people, build bridges and HAVE SOME FUN!

Race options:

  • Human
  • Dwarf
  • Elf
  • Half-Human
  • Centaur
  • Candy Corn Teifling
  • Hobbit

(I’m only allowing 3 religions because I’m creating custom lists of cleric spells and I just don’t have time to make separate lists for Christians, Jewishers, Muslims, Aum Shinrikyo, etc.)

Did he officially die or something??!?

February 4, 2016


Or are we just presuming he’s dead? I scanned 2 months of comments and I’m not sure, but I organized a determined mission to find bloodymage: not only did I look in nearly 3-4 church parking lots on Google Street View searching for signs of habitation, I also Googled his name and went through almost the entire first page of results above the fold. No fucking luck.

So he’s probably dead? There’s no need to review bm’s legacy here and we’re in the trust tree so I think we can speak honestly about him: bloodymage was an utter fumbledick, a category 4 moron who made the planet functionally stupider. And yet…

God damn was this man lovable when viewed from afar! “There but by the grace of God go I” is powerful entertainment, and I know that if my Mom had sniffed more paint while I was in the womb, that could be me thanking for his kind words about my blog. Or lamenting the lack of checkered tablecloth availability in Prescott, AZ. Or traveling 2000 miles and accidentally showing up 2 weeks early to a con. Or… you get the picture.

So, I’m not here to bury bm. I’m here to praise him. bm is the petty god of retarded aging neckbeards (please stat him up in comments for D&D, WFRP, Rune Quest, and Twilight: 2000), and could there ever be a divinity more appropriate or necessary to this hobby? I urge everyone, in memory of bloodymage: find room for a “Golanda” in your campaigns. It doesn’t have to stink, it could be just Golanda the Bar Wench, or the Free City of Golanda tucked into that corner of the map your players will probably never go, or Golanda the evil wizardress who died a thousand years ago, or whatever. Take that little bit of Golanda that lives in all our hearts and make it an official part of your campaigns, and celebrate the fucking idiots we love and laugh at that make this hobby special, in the Life Goes On sense. And if your Golanda is stinky, well that’s just gravy…

New Year’s Resolutions:

I want to do a F.A.T.A.L. play by post, probably taking the party through Dark Albion in search of big titties or a rape tournament or something…

More crying about men’s rights, I feel like everyone forgets Grim Jim even exists.

Publish my CARCOSA reskin, where Sorcerers are the Federal Government, Black Men are slaves and they like it that way, and maybe dial back the raping little kids 25-50%.

FIND GREG CHRISTOPHER! (I promised myself not to post here until he went live again on G+, but it’s just been too long…)

Hang out with Scott when he’s on one of his meth benders.

Also, I think we all need to be reminded that this exists:
