NEVER FORGET

September 11, 2013

This one time, at a D&D convention, someone changed a little baby’s poopy diaper right there in public and they didn’t cordon off the area with curtains or DM screens or even use the Shaming Tent like you’re supposed to after the wiener goes in the hoo-hoo and a human pops out the mommy’s butt 6 months later, and then Darius saw the dirty diaper and it was super gross. He almost smelled it too, but he didn’t, but he almost did and that would have been even super grosser.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahh

      For extra money, he will do an index. Of his core products. For 2600 Euros.

      I’ve done indexing for pay on texts way more complex than RPG books before. It isn’t that hard (just time consuming) and the going rate certainly isn’t that high. Hell, you can look at a copy of B/X to figure out what items you need to include in your index, then ctrl-f them, note the page numbers in a doc, and get it done in a day.

      People seem mad at me for pointing out that this is silly on G+, but there you have it.

        Later stretch goals will include “page numbering (1500 Euros)*

        *shipping not included, may push delivery to 2020.

        Wait wait wait.
        You’re serious?
        He’ll number the pages for an extra month’s rent?
        What do I get for, say, 10 Eurodollarpounds? Bottom line this for me. What’s the entry-level buy-in get me? A bunch of pages with ALMENTITIONS VON DAS FEUR-KÖNIGESCHEN scrawled atop them in felt-tip and a drawing of some Nordic Goth bird stuffing a d20 up herself?
        (Actually, for ten Euros that’s not a bad deal, I could use a new notebook. Maybe the time has come for me to brave Mr. Raggi’s shlock emporium after all.)

      Raggs’ obsession with this “flame princess” is reaching epically creepy proportions. She appears on every single book now. It really disturbs me out that he’s now made her into a peg-legged amputee and is thus throwing a whole new layer of “Boxing Helena” style fetishism into the mix.

      If asked, he would probably say that she’s a non-stereotypical female character and all these situations prove how tough she is. In reality, he seems to enjoy making the character suffer. Clearly there’s no resentment on his part that the real “flame princess” turned him down…

      And for the record, colorized Photoshop pictures of cosplay girls does not count as “art.”

        I skipped ahead to the end and page 7 is reasonably squirrelly. Black Vulmea Himself rides a cascade of “everybody poops” — I guess the gamers really are the nation’s brain trust — and then fucking Steve shuts the fun down in an apparent cholera joke, “it’s run it’s [sic] course.” Actual thread ran for ten fucking days.

    30 DAYS OF D&D

    DAY 10: Craziest thing that’s happened that you saw (to party/characters/your players etc)
    Orcs raping babies while eating their intestines. And they are also shitting. Runner up: Shiting our pants in some Raggi snuff module, then getting attacked by our own shit. Raggi really captured that old school feel by giving us something our 10 year old selves could have come up with.

    DAY 11: Favorite adventure that you have run
    WG7 Castle Greyhawk. It was a blast to shit all over Gary Gygax’s face and life’s work through 12 whole levels.

    DAY 12: Favorite Dungeon Type/Location
    I like dungeons that never see the light of day, like Gary Gygax’s Castle Greyhawk/Zagyg, JMal’s Dimmerdouche Suckdungeon, or anything Rob Kuntz says he’s going to do but never does because he’s too busy listening to Alex Jones and the Tea Party while snorting crystal meth.

        Add to the fact he had to have gotten some of his info on the original Castle Greyhawk from Grodog’s research and we can see why badgering an Australian housefrau for a stupid Mystaran take off is monumentally hypocritical.

        The original, free crap he created for his blog was even “designed” to be used with Gygax’s Castle Zagyg stuff, after it became apparent Troll Lord had lost the license.

        — A folio or folder to organize and store the poster maps when they’re not in use;

        — A deluxe box or slipcase for storing both the level key hardcover and the map folio with all of the poster maps;

        Don’t miss the part where there is a stretch goal to bribe Rags wife into forgetting she came in second place.

        + 350€ Maria Appreciation Fund!
        My wife puts up with a lot of crap to allow LotFP to function, from going without rent for months at a time (while watching thousands of euros come and go for business concerns), the living room being turned into a warehouse for weeks once or twice a year and being littered with packing supplies year-round, the “Leave me alone I’m writing!” shenanigans, “Help me get this load to the post office?”, to dealing with the stress of being married to someone running a small business in a very small and weird industry.

        This crowdfunding campaign is not designed to generate profit in and of itself (of course the hope is the Ref book will go on afterwards to be a wildly successful and profitable book!), but if you vote for this stretch goal, Maria gets her share of the rent immediately after the campaign ends, not three months after the Ref book goes to press. This stretch goal can be achieved numerous times, if you’re feeling that nice.

        Seriously. WTF?

      “The Dungeon of Fat Longpig” sounds like the title of a Raggi snuff special.

      • September 12, 2013 11:59 pm

        I guess the IRON GM is a recurring monster throughout the encounter. It’s like a regular IRON GOLEM, but can devour your character by fiat. Raggi would be proud.

      • September 13, 2013 6:40 am

        I think “The Dungeon of Fat Longpig” is how Raggi’s wife refers to their apartment.

      • September 16, 2013 2:19 pm

        The real Fat Longpig weighs in on the controversy –

        “While I’m ranting… you know gaming is invisible to the mainstream when the guy’s DVD collection (or a selection of, anyway) is shown as part of a news story but not his gaming shelf, when in the pic they use of the guy he’s wearing A FRICKIN GAMING SHIRT. Aren’t you curious what games he played? I am.

        PS. Anyone reading this that’s planning on getting your picture in the news (or isn’t planning on getting your picture in the news but will end up there if you get caught doing what you shouldn’t be doing), LotFP shirts are quite stylish.

        (I feel like this story is stealing my thunder because over the weekend I was thinking “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if some serial killer got caught while wearing an LotFP shirt like the Night Stalker got caught wearing an AC/DC shirt?” but now this story is in the news and it just sounds like this guy inspired the idea WHICH HE DIDN’T ARGH!)

        (“ohhh nooo, you sick fuck, why do you want a serial killer wearing one of your shirts?” I hear you saying. Well, I think a serial killer running around committing crimes naked is slightly worse than one running around committing crimes fully clothed, and that being the case I could use the 15€ more than Levis or Affliction or whoever else makes shirts, and if this happened I could do what you all are wanting me to do: Be a representative of our hobby in one of those talking heads interviews on Fox News where Sean Hannity would just call me a scumbag for 15 minutes. Anything that Sean Hannity doesn’t like will get a boost, right?)

        PPS. There are no actual disturbing photos in the article, unless looking at an empty room where stuff might have happened if the guy had actually abducted anyone, which he hadn’t, is disturbing to you.”

        By the way, he asks to name one conflict the last 40 years we didn’t cause. If Tranno had cracked a history book, or paid attention to the last 40 years, she might have seen the Falkland islands War. Or Chechnya. Or…what is the point? Ignorance is bliss to a self-righteous idiot.

        Problems in the Middle East didn’t start with Lebanon, bitch, as you hypothesize from behind your keyboard and bag of pork rinds. It goes back further than American involvement. No, really. Look at wikipedia if you don’t have any actual history books in your girlfriend’s basement.

    Shit, everything Zak does is to promote a life he doesn’t really have. Poolside at the Roosevelt my ass. He doesn’t know these “stars” that roll in once in a blue moon to be wowed by his mad D&D skill in his shitbox apartement. He gets word out that he gets blog exposure to a certain niche audience, and every now and then one bites and comes to be a geek for photo exposure. It’s actually gettting pretty pathetic that his following falls for it all. But then, the are who they are, right? Sad dipshits.

    His first commentator says he is jealous of Zak’s “special life.” Yep, the special life of a huckster to a weird personality cult in a dying hobby. Who is he going to promote his fake glam life to 10 years from now?

    Hey, anybody remember Dwimmermount? Well, Tavis and company just did:

    http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/autarch/dwimmermount/posts/598752

    “At 0:50, I talk about the problems I’ve been having with motivation and efficiency, which (with having no calls to post) have contributed to the recent lapse in weekly updates. The solutions I’ve decided to try revolve around creating more accountability for myself and increasing the enjoyment I get out of working on this project.”

    Looks like that team is running into the same “motivation” problems that the Pope did. It sucks and is boring as shit.

    Some hoser asks for his money back in the comments. Good luck!

      TL;DR: “Dwimmermount sucks and is boring as hell, but we’ll get to it. Eventually.”

      First comment: “I would like my $40 refund at your soonest convenience.”

      HA HA HA HA HA HA! (that is me pointing and laughing).

      Way to build confidence amongst the backers, Tavis! How about another Kickstarter, Tavis, to get this out the door? Just say you need $3,000 for page numbering, $5,000 for an index. The blOwSR dupes who fell for Dimmerdouche Suckdungeon the first time should go for that. After all, it worked for Faggi.

      I do fear Tavis may consider another Kickstarter to hire an assassin to take out JMal though. I cannot condone this in good conscience, funny as that shit would be.

        It never fails to make me giggle when I read about Dwimmerdust and it’s hapless exploits. Even with low hanging fruit like ZakPrincess, Faggi and Greycock Grogturd competing for my daily dosage of laughs, JMal’s magnum opus still is the funniest failboat to set sail. I wonder what sappy fuck still holds out hope that a copy will show up on the door step one day? Is it bad that I find that funny too?

        BTW IRWS, tip of the hat to you bro wherever you are!

      • September 16, 2013 1:22 pm

        Tavis is lawful/good. Is he actually fucking allowed to hire a cross-border hit even if it’s crowd funded? Or is this the rule that changed in ASS or whichever clone he put out?

        If he hires a cross-border hit on JMal, he better take shipping to Canada into account. International shipping has sank many a Kickstarter.

      • September 17, 2013 7:59 am

        Risks and Challenges: Canadian shipping rates are obnoxious and their contract killers are not known for providing real value. We thought long and hard about making shipping optional but in the end decided it wouldn’t be fair to you, the loyal fan, to have to pay extra for transportation so we are absorbing our “guest of honor’s” bus fare here at Autarch. [<–BLOODYMAGE TAKE NOTE THIS IS HOW IT'S DONE] Also as a relentlessly chipper and upbeat guy I might not actually be able to identify the best guy for our purposes. In addition, James has blocked me from what I'm told is his "new" Google Plus profile and we have not actually communicated in six months, so backers will have to understand there is a chance he is already dead and this campaign is unnecessary. Now let's do this! Game ON! Your friend, Tavis

    Meet Cavin DeJordy. I think he may be Blooeymage’s long lost son. He just graduated from college (already doing better than the old man) and now he’s discovered gaming on the Internet. Apparently there hasn’t been an RPG Internet presence prior to his recent arrival, and he hopes to fix that with his new company, Stronghold.

    “Stronghold is my embryonic business. As of yesterday night after participating in +Jonathan Henry’s Giant Dragons Gamer Chat, I have decided that my businesses (sic) first project will be a virtual convention centered around Google+ Hangout. I’ve identified the need for a con with strong organization, lots of engaging content, and exciting presentations and panels at a good value.”

    Using his entrepreneurial skills and fancy new business degree from U of Cincinnati, he did the research and apparently we poor saps who have yet to figure out how to combine tabletop gaming and the Internet until his arrival have no online virtual RPG cons using Google Hangouts, despite the fact that several successful ones like Aethercon already exist, powered by Google Hangouts (go figure). God bless the American education system, pumping out steaming turds who have no concept of any reality existing before they arrived.

    He should look up Blooey on Linkedin. I think they share a business model.

Maybe get an autographed copy of Polly Dragon too, just to brighten his spirits. True Confession Time: I really hate the cocksuckers who work in accounting and billing – the managers, not the staff that is, and you should hate these pig fuckers in your local hospitals too – and whenever we get a patient with no insurance in the ER, I try and keep them occupying and tying up a berth for as long as I can before they get kicked out by billing (God forbid an MD and not a CPA ever make a medical treatment decision around here) and sent packing. If Blooey ever comes into my ER, and let’s face it you know he won’t have any medical insurance if he does, I’d do the guy a solid and keep him in the hospital for at least two weeks.

        Yeah, in retrospect, the only way I could keep Blooey in the hospital without health insurance or a dog-walking sugar daddy would be to stick him up on the fourth floor (aka the psych ward) for two weeks. But shitty pudding, flavorless Jello, powdered eggs, and over-boiled flavorless wax beans aside, he’d still get full medical care (mental retardation aside) while he was up there. And I would visit him everyday and play Stink in the Gondola with him using the KISS system – really build up his self esteem. And I would always have an extra plastic spork in lab coat, just in case he needed it.

        Or maybe I’d just take blood from him every twenty minutes for the hell of it and flush it down the toilet and order a few unnecessary urinary catheter tube insertions. And make sure the big fat gay black orderly who has body odor that smells like rotting taco meat was the only one authorized for Blooey’s sponge baths.

      Oh Dwimmerdust, how I love you, it’s like I’m Richard Harris and you’re that phone ringing and it’s Oliver Reed out on bail and a promise of best behavior. This whole new “April maybe?” thing makes no sense because layout was underway back in June. Does it really take nine fucking months to lay out a legendary megadungeon? What the fuck went wrong here?

      Digging back into those relentlessly cheerful updates I’m as mystified as ever. Back in May, Tavis was eager to have the “dirty” version (LL) ready by GenCon and then the “proprietary” version (ACK!) “in time for this year’s holiday season.”

      Fun fact though. Some joker called “Pookie” is now the editor of record and has been spending backer resources fucking around with “an analysis of the different kinds of cloth garments found in the dungeon and their special properties.” That was close to two months ago. Let’s hope “Pookie” is fresh from his textile fucking explorations and ready to you know, get back to making the dungeon happen. Because it was in layout three months ago and as one cheerful backer puts it now, the schedule is a bad joke.

    At this point in the game, you have to wonder what the fuck is going on over at Autarch. Jmal’s fucked up bullshit vision of a mega dungeon aside all that Tavis and Co. seem to do is nit pick over fuck all nothing while the clock ticks further down.
    Although there are still gems of pure comedy gold, like garment analysis and this tidbit from Tavis to keep the backers hopes alive:

And how long do you usually get in the county lockup in Preston for crystal meth possession (no intent to sell)?

    Do you and Blooey need some board game donations? I have Don’t Spill the Beans, Don’t Break the Ice, Ants in the Pants, and Cooties. I also have a deck of playing cards with Playboy centerfold models on them. And if you are having a con, you are going to need ashtrays. I can get about 700 wholesale for $50 but you will have to front me the money. Maybe just wire me a cool grand before I leave? You’ll also need hypodermic needles for the con, but I’ll just lift those from work.

      Yup, I called that one last week when he held up the other three religions that are tied to their racial roots. He does the standard-issue “Nobody calls THEM racist!” routine that the racial right always does.

      Maybe when Yoruba or the forces of the Great Spirit murder and rape their way across a couple of continents, you can make that arguement in an intelligent manner. But that is not going to happen.

      And gee whiz, why would an organization (the AFA) that has one of its mai tenants being:

      “2. The preservation of the Peoples of the North (typified by the Scandinavian/Germanic and Celtic peoples), and the furtherance of their continued evolution.”

      be at all suspected of any kind of racialism?

      The problem that guy has is that the incense-and-crystals scene he desperately wants to be part of will naturally recoil from any waft of non-inclusiveness (Geek Social Fallacies 1-5) while any hardcore Volk would immediately realize he spends far too much time fucking around with hobbits to be taken seriously. I mean, hobbits. What more extreme example of “race as class” do you need, all those people are petty criminals. Can’t do magic. Can’t really fight. No normal clerics. Can barely make it into druid school with affirmative action.

    • September 24, 2013 9:02 am

      What confuses me is that Asatru is simultaneously “reconstructed” and a “cultural heritage.” What about the heritage that has developed in the thousand years since this religion was practiced? What about all of history before the existence of this religion? What about the Northern Europeans who never worshiped Odin? What about all of the cultures that have contributed to the bloodlines of the current generation?

      And with regard to “continued evolution,” isn’t diversity the hallmark of evolution? Religion isn’t about genetics, it’s about spirituality.

    As all my fans here know, I am not prone to hyperbole. So you know i am am right then, when I say that the newest module I am publishing is the greatest in the history of D&D, just like Monolith from beyond Time and Space. Are you ready for…the Lurid Sac?!?!

    Paul Keigh has written an insane D&D module entitled Dreams of the Lurid Sac.

    From the back cover:

    Each adventure module in the Psychedelic Fantasies line revels in unconstrained imagination. Every monster, every magic power, and every magic spell is a unique and never-before-seen creation of the author. No orcs, fireballs, or +1 swords will be found within. Leave the familiar behind to explore hitherto undreamed of wonders…

    Compatible with every old school version of the original fantasy role-playing game.

    How big is the module?

    It’s the same size as all the rest of the Psychedelic Fantasies modules:

    16 pages in length
    9-point Times Roman font
    11″ tall and 4.25″ wide (so it will fit in your back pocket)

    What does it look like?

    Just like all the other Psychedelic Fantasies modules. Scroll down a bit to take a gander. Hint: Bright, bright (one might even say psychedelic) orange.

    What is the module about?

    “About”? “About”? This module is not “about” anything. It is the purest location-based module I’ve ever seen. Not one word is about anything other than the titular Lurid Sac. That’s your location.

    Confused? Think about where Han Solo flew the Millennium Falcon in The Empire Strikes Back. Or, more precisely, into what he flew it. The Lurid Sac is freaking alive! The whole damn dungeon is one giant monster. And what a monster! The Lurid Sac is nothing less than the most amazing monster ever published for D&D. I can’t tell you how cool the whole thing is. Summaries fail Dreams of the Lurid Sac, which is tightly and precisely written. It’s weird that Paul was able to use such exacting language to describe something so fantastic, so outre, so crazy. He has raised the bar with this one. I think it one of the single best (and certainly one of the most imaginative) modules I’ve ever seen.

    Do you have a picture with that?

    No. To keep the price lower, none of the Psychedelic Fantasies modules have any art. These modules are not works of art. They are utilitarian products meant to take your players to places they’ve never been before.

    How much does it cost?

    Print + PDF:
    $5.00 for U. S. customers paying with money order
    $5.50 for U. S. customers paying with Paypal
    $7.75 for international customers paying with Paypal

      The “I can’t tell you how awesome it is so send money” pitch here is so hyperbolic you actually got me to snopes the fucking thing. What’s with the lemmiwinks motif in “edgy” design right now? Seems like every single CRAYZEE product features heavily armored gerbils going deep into the flesh cave in search of that lost mummy horse dick, syrup bottle or other magic macguffin — by which I mean glowing dildo.

      This dungeon . . . is ALIVE. Like that ass Han Solo busted in the Empire Strikes Back. Where he flew it. That one time.

      Far more “intrigued” with Blooey’s evocatively titled “The Stink in Golanda.” Never actually dated Golanda but I can fucking imagine how intense all that estrogen must smell.

Course Ragu the Saucy somewhere said he never heard of the Lichway when he ripped it off while masturbating to Evil Dead II.

      So now a party and climb through the ass of a giant monster and sever its testicles to prevent it shooting out wads of giant semen monsters… What a glorious and heroic mission. Much like Ragu the Saucy doesn’t need monsters, magic items, errr anything creative in LotFap, Geoffrey doesn’t need art (i.e. spending any fooking money) to capture imaginations.

    Long term reader, first time poster.

    I dunno guys, much as i love reading about the many different flavours of hucksterism, narcissism and snake oil salesmanship that permeate the OSR like different species of tape worm infesting a bloated, disease-ridden swine, I’ve never really been convinced that Geoffrey Mckinney can be rated among the likes of Raggi, the pope or Rob Cunt in terms of rampant egotism, masturbatory self-promotion(granted, that one is a bit of a stretch), delusional insanity or sheer undiluted assholishness.

    Granted, the guy has made a few ill-advised statements regarding his preferences regarding the abolition of slavery but in terms of the quality of work he puts out one can accuse him of comparatively little. Even Carcosa, a controversial and much maligned product, did have some artistic/creative merit besides introducing rape as a core mechanic(Raggi and FATAL fans take note), and most of his other stuff seems to be devoid of the shock and awe ‘look there is rape and also blood’ tactic that characterizes most of the Loftp products.

    Perhaps i am missing the point of this site, but Mckinney’s whole Psychedelic Fantasy shtick doesn’t, to me, scream of either the cynical exploitation of the nostalgia of manchildren(if we, for a moment, assume the null hypothesis regarding the application of that label to the entire OSR) or the deranged hubris of a man who thinks he has ‘created’ the ultimate game (that has been out for three decades). To me it has the feel of an actual hobbyist. Is it good? Fuck if i know, i too am waiting for 7chan to deliver unto me these roleplaying gems he broods on like a slightly racist mother hen.

    I read a few of his Loftp reviews, and i agree, but with the Psychedelic Fantasy stuff, and two of his prior products, Isle of the Unknown and Dungeon of the Unknown, a big explicit ‘selling’ point appears to be originality. He wants to recapture the sense of wonder and unfamiliarity that one gets when one first plays DnD and everything is still new. All of the Psychedelic Fantasy stuff is supposed to contain new monsters, spells and items exclusively. Your mileage may vary, but at least he explains why he thinks its cool.

      Isle of the Unblown being original? What the god damn fuck? Anybody can say “A two-headed chicken with bat wings that shoots lasers from its eyes.” The most fucking stupid menagerie of “monsters” to ever infect the OSR. And it gets praised?

    Heh, yeah, it’s almost like he just went like ‘a floating eye monster with thirteen eyes that fires lasers from its eyes’ or ‘a shark with legs’ or ‘a giant cricket that eats metal.’

    Isle of the Unknown is no Monstrous Manual 2, Fiend Folio, Dark Sun Monstrous Compendium or Monsters of Myth, sure. On the other hand, it does provide an environment to explore that is filled with unique creatures and magical effects(e,g the Unknown), and while I can’t say this adventure would be in my top ten or even my top 20 of adventures i’d like to run with my group sometime, I can see the merit in having a hex crawl environment filled with original(google said original meant new, fresh, inventive or novel) monsters with unknown capabilities for the players to explore. Its existence fills a very specific niche, but is not guilty of merely reshashing what has come before.

    I can see merit in the adventure location as a whole, not that the execution couldn’t be better.

    As for material that the creators put more thought in; What would you, Timothy, consider to be a particularly good example of this, within the OSR? I’m genuinely curious.

    I got fired from my godamn job because I recommended YDIS at work. So much for my high IQ.

    Rats.

    All I said was that everyone at work who didn’t believe that i hadn’t any friends should visit here and meet my friends and join in if they are a member of MENSA.

    My boss was an attractive lady who would not understand the achievement of YDIS. I didn’t mean for her to go read YDIS, only the younger ones. She had to go home for a rest and then she fired me on the phone.

      I assume that the two unruly ones are dogs, and not his fiance. But jeez, isn’t she supposed to be a dog trainer? Does not speak well of her abilities that her own are unruly (to some degree).

        October 1, 2013 12:26 pm

        I think it’s one dog and one fiancé, although I haven’t seen a picture of his fiancé, but I assume would probably be a bit of a dog too. Anyone else notice that’s the male spelling, as opposed to fiancée? Maybe we should set Kent and Blooey up on a date… Kent would probably still be a bit of a slave driver too (“take a shower this week Blooey! Use a coaster!), but he seems like a godless pseudointellectual atheist type so I doubt there would be any more Bible study.

        I wouldn’t count the dog walker’s mad skilz out yet, bro. It’s Blooey talking, so his definition of unruly might be the dog needs to be fed, given water, and walked occasionally while he’s trying to learn CC2 technology.

    Click on Blooey’s name and find all his posts at that site and I promise you hours upon hours of entertainment! Watch as he documents and announces everything – every single fucking detail from setting up his message board signature to how much he hates ads (despite his first post being a fucking ad).

      This site is always good for my daily dose of gamer schadenfreude.

      Gamers seem to be averse to acknowledging that what they do is a fucking HOBBY. You are not now, nor are you ever, going to get paid for what you do. Stop putting trademarks all over everything thinking that doing so somehow makes your shitty rules an official product.

    Kudos to Captain Kirk’s Dickblood, for this hilarious and frankly surreal find.

    What strikes me as bizarre(normal person standards not blooeymage standards) is his last answer. Why the hell would you answer an open question about your company with a tear-jerking, doom-saying account of how it is dying. Its like he is actively trying to lose what little possibly hypothetical support he has?

    Also, if i am correct in divining the nature of his “PENDULUM SYSTAM,” you basically just roll 1d6 and if its 4 or more(or possibly the slightly subversive 3 or less), you add it up. That would generate a normal distribution with the 0 as its centre and makes increasingly high or low scores increasingly unlikely. I have decided i can do better.

    I call it the DUR, or DICE U ROLL system(tm), in which the dice you roll are compared to the patterns i observed in my breakfast cereal this morning. It generates a number between -2 and 3, each roughly analogous to a particular brand of cereal. Where is the -3 you ask? It is in your heart. You are the minus 3.

    Anyone interested in helping me develop this system or making artwork or maps for the world of Orth can contact me by way of my new website Tetrahedron Games LLLCCC. Interested contributors are asked to make a small investment, that can be easily offset by finding two other contributors to support Tetrahedron games, whose contributions will land you a nice percentage. Of course, anyone they find to donate will land you a hefty sum as well.

    As a final notice, our company is currently being run from the back of an unmarked van after several unfortunate kickstarter-related incidents, but we expect all the problems to dissapear, as we have switched to indigogo. We have accumulated much experience over the last three kickstarters, so much that we have level-upped. Yes, sir, here at Tetrahedron games, we are at least level 2.

    There have been frequent complaints about our website being offline and only being accessible through a website offering Russian mailorder brides. If you cannot contact us by email but you are interested, leave an envelop with your money and contact information near the abandoned well just south of the Cypres Creek National Wildlife Refuge, Illinois, and we will contact you asap.

      • October 2, 2013 8:33 am

        Remember, BM has banned all Russians from the Polyhedracon forums. However, if he offered Russian brides as backer rewards for his ill-starred Indiegogo campaign, he might see some action (in a manner of speaking).

        That is a great thought, perdustin. And he could use a portion of the funds raised from the now less-ill-starred indiegogo to buy some gas for Mike Nystul, so he could swing by the airport on his Kerouac-esque odyssey and pick the brides up for backers.

        Nystul could then claim that all the money was blown on gas and naturalization, and charge them another fiver for their new wives.

      Jesus fucking Christ, this is the second time in 2 years he’s passed a tin cup around. For $300?!?!? This is a middle-aged white male, with I believe multiple university degrees and the ability to write professionally… and he doesn’t have access to $300 in credit or the budget flexibility to swallow three bills on his own? When Brandon Walsh wanted a Mustang he didn’t beg for money — he worked the whole fucking summer at the Beverly Hills Beach Club and he saved his pennies and he bought that fucking car, and that was like five grand in 1991-dollars.

      I honest-to-fucking-God cannot understand how Curtis and people like him live their goddamn lives. How about sell a portion of that stack of old, shitty D&D stuff that I know you have in your closet? How about work at McDonald’s for a month? How about don’t travel to that next stupid fucking Con on your schedule? Maybe walk around the neighborhood and offer to mow lawns or wash cars for $10. Get a paper route. Sell some weed. The library lets you use computers for free, maybe go sign up for an hour of time?

        Does Michael Curtis stop? No, he does not stop. Why? He’ll tell you why:

        “The gift was so generous that … I’ll be able to replace my aging computer and get back on with finishing the sequel. However, I promised to keep this fundraiser going for a full week to allow people access to the limited edition PDF. I intend to keep that promise.

      I liked Stonehell. I saw this yesterday and I kept trying to tell myself this one was different – it was only $300 and he was at least offering a PDF (an already completed PDF at that) rather than making promises for stuff later. Then reading a little closer it’s the “Save Stonehell Fundraiser” – but:

      “My machine died just when finances are at their worst and, after pursuing my budget, it’s apparent it may be several months before I can afford repairs or replace the ancient computer. At this point, it’s probably the same cost to do either. Frankly, that’s a delay I do not want to endure.”

      …so it’s not to “save” this thing it’s to avoid a delay he doesn’t want to endure? The first part of Stonehell’s been out for 4 years now and he’s worried about a delay of “several months” to get the other part out? How is this an emergency for “Stonehell”? How does a “busy freelancer” do that kind of job on a computer that sucks that much? How does he only have one computer? What else does this guy do for a living? The “other expenses” BS is just the cherry on top of the fucking sundae.

      So thanks MC Stonehell. I’ve been able to enjoy YDIS from the sidelines for all this time, laughing at the manchildren who beg for money from strangers online, mooch off their wives, or simply fail to execute a written document when handed thousands of dollars to do so but you finally pushed me over the edge into posting. Thank you … I think.

      P.S. – If you have “special dungeon levels” already created for something that people are interested in and find your self short of cash, maybe you should put them up on Lulu for a few bucks next to your other PDF’s and get the word out that you’ve done so, possibly sparing yourself the embarrassment of begging. Assuming you are embarrassed by “asking for charity” at all.

    Hi guys, Blooeymage here,

    PrinceofNothing was kind enough to post my message, because as an old, dying one legged albatross that is soon to leave this world, i cannot afford to utilize expensive businesses like the internet as i am subsisting mostly on the traffic i bring to the Russian-mail order bride website, as well as the money i am raking in from copious blood donations(i tried donating my semen but the doctors said it was no good and also if i would please stop donating egg yolk).

    After reading none of your comments, i have decided to take your criticisms to heart but would also like to present to you my new venture in getting the world of Erf published and on your doorstep.

    My previous attempts to attract buisness partners to pilot the sinking and decrepit rust-ridden hulk that is the Polyhedron flag ship have been met with mockery, scorn and incredulity. Long have i pondered why this is so. I have it all. An imaginative setting. A keen mind well versed in the knowledge of Roleplaying. A haggling proficiency. Level 2. 15 hit points. Nystull’s magic aura memorised two times. Yet i needed more. I realised i have been searching to hire people to pay me money, but only now have i realised that the money has been with you, my hypothetical fanbase, all along.

    Gentlemen. I present to you my new Kickstarter, World of Alf. Tired of watching me flail and writhe under the harsh glare of sense and sensibility? Why not do it yourself? That’s right, because with World of Alf, all the money you donate to me will be used by me so that you can publish and write your World of Alf, under the Polyhedron Games logo. All the profit i gain from this venture will be spent on organising a new kickstarter and also gas for Blooeycon. I have distanced myself from the old, 1st edition Bloodymage economics(or Blooeyconomagics), so i bring you this, the 2nd edition. Where you pay and do the work, and i get money.

    Polyhedron Games is going into the new millennium. Stretch goals include:

    $10.000: I will do a short, personalised youtube video on how my buisness makes no money, so people need to donate more money and try harder.

    $20.000: You can make your own, short adventure and put it in the pdf.

    $30.000: Nothing.

    $40.000: Personalised Blooeymage bathtowels and special, foam-wrapped headgear will be sent to all backers(manufactoring and shipping costs not included).

    $ 50.000: Your name will be etched into to the official Blooeymage coffin.

    $ 70.000: All money will go towards Tavis’s I Will Find You Jamal, There Is No Point In Hiding, I Want My Money Kickstarter.

    $100.000: Money will be donated to a Haitian Cursemonger to pronounce a death curse on Mike Nystull.

    $100.000.000.000: A payload of experimental femtotechnology will be designed and released to rewrite reality on a fundamental level to bring it closer to the World of Ert(tm), making it easier for new players and GM’s to set their games in the World of Ert(tm).

    Death to all PCs!

    Not sure how to describe this one. Supposedly people have been asking R4 how to buy the newly announced M. Curtis (of TinCupHell fame) adventure separately, rather than chucking 100 euros more into the indieblowblow campaign. He spends a paragraph talking about much everyone’s support means to him, before saying no.

    “Because Fuck you, that’s why.”

    http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/lotfp-hardcover-referee-book?c=activity

    Also another vote for stretch goals. Even though it is only 350 euros for the Lotfappers to show appreciation for poor Maria, I bet she comes in second for the fifth time in her life with Raggs. The man himself encourages this in the updtes, talking about how special the color will be.

      So the benevolent R4 is giving his supporters an adventure written by a person who has to beg the OSR for a new computer to finish Stonehell. A megadungeon that might as well be titled Dwimmermount 2: The Asshattery Lives On. And Raggs is supposedly doing this out of his own pocket. Meanwhile, his wife is still waiting for the rent.

Or do they follow the same ol’ dungeon routine, but mixing it up with amazing concepts like…alien involvement, dwarves are born out of gluttondildo asses, or “wow, it’s not the past, this gameworld is set in the far flung future!” type bullshit?

    I’m not sure what the collective YDIS take is on the value of this man’s judgement, but the tenfootpole.org guy seems to think both Stonehell and Anonymous Subservice environment are both very good, with ASE being his favourite adventure of all time and Stonehell being credited as one of the few good megadungeons in existence. If memory serves, Dwimmermount got a less then positive review(link: http://tenfootpole.org/ironspike/?p=1104), so we have an indication of some kind of criterion being maintained.

    • October 5, 2013 10:25 am

      My take is ASE fucking sucks — there’s a unresolved tension where on the one hand it’s a funhouse dungeon with a bunch of wacky shit that makes little sense, and on the other hand he’s one of those DMs that has to find a rational explanation for shit best left unexplained, so there’s these monsters that run around and reset all the traps and clean up after shit and lock doors, and the “gods” are orbiting hi-tech AI which means clerical magic is tech-derived, and there an explanation for all this big meta shit. Plus the setting is gay and that takes up half the first book. tenfootpole dude loves gonzo so he really responded to it.

      I only saw the 3 levels from Stonehell that Curtis originally posted to his blog, which I thought were interesting for stripping down the format — there is a use for that, primarily as a platform for DMs running it to riff off of, and also as a teaching tool to show other DMs how to get started making their own megadungeon without being discouraged by the thought of coming up with 100,000 words. But the content of Stonehell is very bland and it created the whole 1-page-dungeon phenomenon, which has turned into something super lame. Curtis is good at organization (I believe he is a librarian by trade) but wholly lacks creativity. Maybe that’s why Raggi sees him as a kindred soul.

      I agree about ASE, I can’t see what the plaudits are for. The few pages of background were quite interesting but the whole dungeon itself was business as usual in a different dress.

      As with Stonehell, that *is* what people, who can’t create their own material, want. They are the market. There is no market for creative types selling stuff to each other.

      • PrinceofNothing permalink
        October 5, 2013 11:55 am

        Have not read ASE myself, so i cannot comment on its merits or demerits. But one would think there exists a market for creative people selling their stuff to uncreative people. The would the fact you yourself are not a creative person not make you want to purchase creative material all the more?

      • October 5, 2013 1:23 pm

        I guess, but I think even wildly creative material in the hands of someone who is dull at that sort of thing ends up uninteresting as well. How far can you get simply reading boxed text, no matter how good it is?

        No. They want: good to go, plug and play, minimal preparation, minimal reading, same-as-Ive-seen-before-stuff, and random tables instead of thought. The community is too small to have *enough* competent DMs to create a market, that is good DMs interested in other good DMs original material.

    “Of course there always has to be one artist to let the entire show down; for me this was Zak Smith with his awful 100 Girls, 100 Octopuses and Naked Girls in the Naked Girl Business. His work rides on the supposedly shocking truth that he knows all of these girls from the porn industry in which he also works, however the images he makes are roughly drawn in Tippex and Biro and completely degrading to women. His intention may be to reveal another side to his female porn stars, but drawings of women writhing around with phallic snake forms are not witty or clever, just blatantly objectifying.”

        Phew. Just seeing that tag line “Death to all PC’s” lets me know everything is OK in Blooeyville (a lot like Margeritaville, but with a lot less margeritas, boiling shrimp, and flip flops getting blown out).

        I can just picture him there, perched on those bleachers like a gargoyle, cheering on the Adair girl’s softball team and struggling to drink creamed corn from a can he banged open with a rock. My life’s goal now is to follow this dude around for a day, just 24 hours…

    Brunomac’s D&D memories from back in the day in the style of Hubert Selby Jr.

      Ah, he always manages to sneak in something about him being the only D&D guy straight known to crush the pussy.

        Daniel tells it like it really is: “The only “Mac” I remember was a older guy, older than me anyway ( I just recently turned 60, at that time I was the youngest of the “Old Poops”)”

        And about those pussies he was crushing: “Mostly girls helped him run the store, like Katherine (the girl with the scarred face but knockout body who always wore coveralls, she became a nurse)”

      Brunomac is a BIG SCOTTISH STUD and he doesn’t care who knows it.

      His back in the day stories are interesting in a David Lynch kind of way.

      • October 8, 2013 7:27 am

        I think he’s holding back or maybe has blocked the memories out, because I’m certain he’s got a River’s Edge or Tapping the Source kinda tale in him.

        That opening crack about “register boys” seemed to get things moving in a Tralala brooklyn hooker direction but instead of Lou Reed’s epic “Street Hassle” it turned back into the Banana Splits theme pretty fucking fast.

        I guess the only dangler “Playing the World” didn’t snip is whether the creator of the thief class had a weakness for blond youth in orthopedic appliances. Don’t tease us with vague innuendo, Mac. Tell us what happened!

      Very interesting, and not at all surprising, that no one who was demonstrably there remembers ol’ Brunomac from back in the day, despite all his name dropping.

      I have no doubt that all these babes he assuredly went out with would have similar difficulty in recalling him.

        It’s like the Mike Nystul story all over again. Expect a Kickstarter coming soon from this deadbeat.

      Brunomac briefly started a second blog a few years ago telling stories about youthful gaming with adolescent grotesques, stories which made it clear that D&D was a disgusting past-time and the scene was like a prison for hydrophobic grinning masturbators.

      Thinking about it, they remain the most interesting blog posts on gaming Ive read.

        Is it still on the net, or do you have an address so we can Wayback it? I’d love to see lardass point to the places on the doll where the bearded ones touched him.

    Someone mentioned it not being pleasant being stuck in Iowa, but the City Park here has showers and electrical hook-ups. I’ve had the opportunity to watch softball every evening; last night’s games were the first real competitive games I’ve seen. Adair’s older girls’ team has one no-nonsense catcher! Aggressive that one is! Good game even though Adair stomped the competition 13 to 5!
