S&W Whitebox, S&W Complete, OSRIC, AD&D, OD&D, LotFaG, D&D, etc…

December 23, 2010

For the last fucking time… to anyone with a goddamn brain in their pin-fucking-head, these are all the exact same fucking game. “But Knockspell is going to be all AD&D now, but I want to play OD&D so now everything is ruined, what do I do?!!?”

How about stop being such a fucking faggot.

If you do not have the imaginative gumption to bridge the insignificant mechanical gap between these, then you should not be playing roleplaying games – you should be reading books. If you still need a creative outlet to express the glorious uniqueness that is you, write fanfic. Elminster getting buttfucked by Aragorn, with Drizzt and Cugel whacking big furious bukakke loads on Red Sonja.

Who cares anyway, Knockspell is a buttoned-up, dry & boring piece of dung.

And seriously, can I have a show of hands of who is going to buy a so-called ‘Art of the OSR’ book slapped together on a lark, with a bunch of shit in it that has been seen before in a thousand different places? (LotFP purchasers, please put your paws down – voting is restricted to non-Mongoloids.) Oh wow, Paul Jaquays is going to dig up some shitty doodles from thirty years ago that he spilled Yoo-Hoo on… AWESOME! What do you really do with that, other than embarrass yourself to single women? ‘Mythmere’ is Matt Finch? I wanted to bash him for leading the community toward a cynical new low, but this is just such a pissant, handjob of a project – I guess he thinks he’s blowing a sloppy kiss to the OSR, but it really just smells like a wet fart from here.

    Spot on with both points, especially the first. But people complaining about an AD&D focus when they’re playing OD&D are probably the same types who say 2e was “broken” or “unplayable” despite being 99% identical to the previous edition.

    I love it when you get all fucked up on egg nog and rum, then write sentimental holiday posts.

    Did you get to comment on the new piece of suck called the Swords and Wizardry Complete Rules? Let’s take a really cool game concept and put all the stupid broken shit that newer editions fixed just to do it the way maybe 20 or so old fuckers do it.

    I really think these guys need to branch out in general. Yes, we liked the old stuff, but it’s getting stale and uninteresting without truly new ideas and new directions for the old systems. The rules are more versatile by far than what we’ve seen done with them. We’re still only seeing baby steps from most OSR writers in this regard.

    James M continues begging his readership to send him free copies of rare RPGs…latest is C&S 2nd edition: http://grognardia.blogspot.com/2010/12/c-quote.html

    I’m not sure who the bigger shitheads are here: James M for unashamedly soliciting free stuff on his blog, or the readers who send him said stuff…..

    Letz not ferget about BasickFantahsee. This game had a chance to be on top but crissypissy dropped the ball. He could have made an advanced version but instead he let Labbylord take over when he was the poo poo. Instad he made the almanac which his dumb ass kant even spell. All crissypissy can do is ack like a badass on his forum where itz the only place he can do that. Chikenlil too late!
