All your base are belong to me

May 22, 2012

You fuckers got sloppy with your IP and now I’m gonna come over and burn your dick with a candlestick. After doing a little research I have copyrighted, trademarked, product identitied, and registered as my property the following product names:

  • Dwimmermount
  • Delving Deeper
  • The God that Crawls
  • The Monolith from Beyond Time and Space
  • Dwarf-Land
  • Aione Megadungeon
  • Loviatar

I can’t believe none of you flamers bothered to protect your precious creations through the proper legal channels. Cost me dinner money in fees to scoop up legal ownership of those names, and if you try to publish anything under the same name I’m going to sue you and seize your family as chattel. But I’m not a bad guy, so I offer the following terms. You play ball, you get your IP back:

James Maliszewski: Renounce your offensive polemics against ‘bastardy,’ donate 100 hours of your time to personally working with children from broken homes, and then film yourself licking your own pussy.

John Adams: So, you got yourself baptized at age 40-something… this means you have changed your Christian denomination, yes? Just to get a new shitty job you turned your back on the God you served for 40+ years? Okay, well if you want DD back you’re going to have to do it again. Either go to Wicca or one of the wacky Muslim ones, like 5% or something. Or Scientology, I will accept that as well. Post confirmation ceremony/Thetan audit to YouTube.

James Raggi IV: You’ve already given us the spectacle of a crash n’ burn IndieGogo campaign, I’d feel guilty asking you for anything else. Here, have your projects back.

Scott Driver: Tits or GTFO.

Kent: 1000 word post extolling R.A. Salvatore’s literary works as superior to James Joyce’s, and it better sound like you mean it.

Christian: New zine comprised solely of F.A.T.A.L. fanfic.

Clock’s ticking, I’m kickstarting my version of these projects in Q3 if I don’t get what I want.

    Can you actually register a mythological name? Loviatar is from the Finnish epic Kalevala. Could you also somehow control the use of Zeus or Thor?

    Marvel owns the rights to Thor, within the context of a hammer weilding comic book character. You can create a new character named Thor in a comic book, but if the character resembles Marvel’s Thor too much, they can sue for infringement. I’m not sure how that works when the infringing material is created first, while the copyrighted material comes next, though. Funny stuff.

    I didn’t notice that K&KA thread before. Let’s get this out in the open. In a thread about The John Carter movie the Religious James Maliszewski feels compelled to get this comment about BASTARDY in a film off his chest:

    >>Religious J-Mal:– I intensely disliked Ratatouille, which I found to be muddled and self-indulgent (not to mention self-congratulatory). And, I’ll be honest, I was more than a little shocked that a film marketed to children included bastardy as a pivotal plot point.

    What was that?

    >>Religious J-Mal:– … I was more than a little shocked that a film marketed to children included bastardy as a pivotal plot point.

    I have yet to meet a Religious person who isn’t a sick fuck.

    Fine word ‘legitimate’.

    Thou, nature, art my goddess; to thy law
    My services are bound. Wherefore should I
    Stand in the plague of custom, and permit
    The curiosity of nations to deprive me,
    For that I am some twelve or fourteen moon-shines
    Lag of a brother? Why bastard? wherefore base?
    When my dimensions are as well compact,
    My mind as generous, and my shape as true,
    As honest madam’s issue? Why brand they us
    With base? with baseness? bastardy? base, base?
    Who, in the lusty stealth of nature, take
    More composition and fierce quality
    Than doth, within a dull, stale, tired bed,
    Go to the creating a whole tribe of fops,
    Got ‘tween asleep and wake? Well, then,
    Legitimate Edgar, I must have your land:
    Our father’s love is to the bastard Edmund
    As to the legitimate: fine word,–legitimate!
    Well, my legitimate, if this letter speed,
    And my invention thrive, Edmund the base
    Shall top the legitimate. I grow; I prosper:
    Now, gods, stand up for bastards!

    Couldn’t you have gotten that Insect Shrine vaporware as well? Then R4 would have a legitimate reason for its not coming out, besides “It sucks shit.” Also, it would be nice if you mandated all LOTFAP products mimic the cover of Monolith, a big steaming turd cut by Cthulhu.

    Good idea on the jolly halfling dude. I bet he makes Theta Clear in two months.

    Yeah, but did Ragu keep the money earned to buy Celtic Frost records or did its failure mean he got a zero pay day?

    • May 24, 2012 8:35 am

      Raggi gets to keep the money. He achieved his stated goal, but obviously he wanted much more. Raggi’s failure to fund various adventures was – in my opinion – because he pretended to have one project with numerous stretch goals. Actually, he had numerous projects strung together in the guise of a single funding campaign – somewhat akin to a human centipede. In this context, we see that Raggi wants $7,500 to publish a 32 page adventure. Although some people may consider this to be outlandish, we must remember that Raggi affects an outlandish demeanor. I really can’t blame Raggi for his ambition in this matter given the success of Dwimmermount.

    It speaks volumes about Maliszewski’s self-righteousness that he immediately removed himself from K&KA (to the extent that his username no longer appears on their member list) and hasn’t been back since. In fact, he has a pattern of this sort of cut-and-run when things don’t go his way, and then clamming up about it. I think that’s what he conceives of as being “professional”. He’s a big man on his own blog, where he can censor anyone he that doesn’t fawn all over him or buy his line of bullshit, but when someone takes him to task somewhere else, he runs away blubbering. Notice he has zero web presence nowadays outside the blog, whereas he used to be a (non-contributing) contributor at Bob Cunt’s blog, a regular pontificator at K&KA, a clueless sycophant at Eldritch Dark, etc. ad nauseam. No wonder his posts have grown less and less interesting over time–his echo chamber is shrinking like one of the stupid room traps in Green Devil Face.

    • May 27, 2012 3:03 pm

      I am really fucking impressed that Maliszewski has such a following. Just a bunch of ramblings about how he gamed once upon a time and then he tries to pump out some mega dungeon or something. What is the fucking point and who buys this shit? There is some dude’s site that I can make a fucking mega dungeon in like 5 seconds for free! Sometimes he speaks at cons like he is some gaming authority when he doesn’t even play anymore.

        But does that megadungeon have lots of empty rooms and some other rooms with rats and 2 goblins and nothing else? Dimmerdump does. And it made a million bucks. Mad Props to the J Mal. PT Barnum is looking down from con man heaven beaming with pride.

        I too could care less what you think or spout from those pretty English-faggot lips. The ego-phallus that you continuously stroke between your effeminate fingers doesn’t impress me. You’ve not only jumped the shark, you’ve backed up, shoved your tiny-limp-dick into all of its orifices and then guzzled on the thin, tiny creampies you’ve left behind. You are just as much a shadow of a mockery as you claim anyone else is.

    Prediction for the next few months:

    JMal will get a big check from WOTC and, like the port-town whore he is, jump to 5e claiming it as an OSR game and convert DimmerCooch to the system. Of course, he’ll do this with sudden ‘insights’ that he got while masturbating to thoughts of Gary Gygax molesting him and the sheep will follow St. Jimmy and show how easily led they are.

    With Jimmy gone Alexass and Faggi will fight it out for who the true prophet of the OSR is. Poag will illustrate the fight with large amounts of shit, rape and babies. Many will leave the OSR fearing the movement being led by one of these two.

    Meanwhile, OSRIC and Labyrinth Lord will still suck and with no hope of finding usefulness will turn to whoring themselves out to truckers at a run-down Detroit truck stop. The Chenault Boys will promise more products for C&C to compete with 5e but, as usual, nothing gets done since they spend all their time at a strip club for trannies. DIck Crawler Craptastic creator Joe Goodman will find himself a guest on To Catch a Predator and the game dies before any more foil books and dick shaped dice will be made.

    Finally, Robbie Cunt-Lips will find no gives a rat’s ass about his drivel and blow his brains out in the crackhouse he was conceived in.

    All in all, it will be a good year.

    Wow. Funny -but not as funny as y’all seem to think. Thing is, my bet is that this is, basically, bullshit, and I’m not even convinced it really happened. Yeah, sure you can IP the hell out of all those; and sure you can sue – if you’ve got the money to spare. But, I’d bet that prior use and the above rant will go along way towards proving malicious intent; plus, if they used the bog standard OGL, they have at least a passive ownership of all that isn’t OGL -registering IP is easy, but it still is to to the registrar to prove no prior ownership. So I’m guessing that this is just pud waving to piss on your favorite piss-boys. Which is fine, fun, and creative, but unfortunately, an obvious fantasy.

    Why ? well, if you have registered IP, you are an idiot, and are thinking with your unsupressed nerd rage , taking fat-boy-braniac-on-a-playground-pleasure in using big words that the local retards don’t get – and assuming that that will carry you forward when you play with adults. Which is a mistake.

    So, okay, lets imagine that you did resister all of those (and exactly where ? The international IP magic pixie registry ? Oh, right, details. Nevermind).

    All your victims need do is ignore you and keep doing what they do; so you need to either basically give up your claims through non-enforcement, OR sue them (and have more money or gainful employment than your time online suggests, or at least send C&D notices, ( got a lawyer handy ? C&D & service cost a minimum of 300$ per to have any effect) ; and, at this point, whoever the hell you are is now public record (actually, it already is if you actually did more with the ips than post on your blog -but I’m assuming you have the brains to register them to an anonymous owner/company/LLC);

    Now that you are known, and throwing down actual grown up money to harass fanboys you seem to have a hate boner for, have I’d be astonished if one or more of the more dysfunctional or overly revenge minded fanboys don;t start throwing your ass to the lawyers: accusations of pedophilia, damage to various businesses, good old stalking statutes, and everyone’s favorite version of slander or libel (depending on how online character assassination is regarded in your jurisdiction) .

    In fact, I’ll predict here that the big new OSRetard kickstart news will be raising money to sue your now publicly identified ass . See, they don’t have to win, (although they might) any more than you do, to make your life a financial hell. And frankly, five or six nerd-raging fanboys (like yourself) backed by some kickstart money (lots of people will kick in 5 bucks+ to see you dance the boned by lawyers fees hornpipe) will always be able to outspend and generally ass-bone one somewhat snarky but ultimately unresourced blogboner

    Ive been thinking about our journey as a species out of dank stinky caves. How did it ever happen? Did it happen? Maybe we are still living in shitty dark caves but have merely evolved airs and graces. I have been thinking about this because whenever an intelligent person makes a suggestion the average fellow doesn’t follow it and tends to react against it because it is deep in human nature to oppose – “don’t tell me what to do” – but if a stupid person makes a suggestion *in all politeness* then this is considered delectable by any hairy savage within earshot.

    What is this ‘politeness’ which makes shit smell like apple pie straight from the oven? Think of all the morons you know and how they detest their betters. Now try to imagine me and Ms Suck Dungeon and Dr. Strangelove trying to coax you out of your faeces encrusted stone hovels. It’s not working, right? You are staying put. Now imagine a million generations of polite religious apes like grognardia and guys like you guys on the internet politely talking random shite and somehow there is slow progress, the peoples who survived were the ones who were accidentally sitting slightly further out from the crappy cavern of pong with each generation.

    But if you just listened me, and listened to Ms Suckdungeon, and listened to Dr. Strangelove all those millions of years ago we would each already have our own PK Dick flying cars and beautiful women would suck our balls to sate their lust rather than for money.

    What a waste of time measured in epochs is this ‘politeness’. Just do what I say, me and Suckdungeon and Strangelove.
