Monte Cook took your money but he doesn’t want you fucking sub-humans talking to him with your goddamn bullshit

December 5, 2013

Monte Cook took a breather from counting the loot from his second Kickstarter, just a few moments he used to take a big, runny dump all over the people who gave him more than $400,000:

monte cook hates your guts

You understand that, you little shits? Giving Monte Cook your money, supporting his company, artistic aspirations, and lifestyle, DOES NOT entitle you, in any way and regardless of your intentions, to address him. He absolutely DOES NOT want to hear any of your bullshit. In fact, Monte does not think of you even as human: you are simply a semi-sentient wallet, and he desires of you just enough cognitive capacity to empty your contents into his Bag of Infinite Money-Holding. That task accomplished, your duty is done and you must now seep back into whatever whore’s ass you were shat from.

On the other hand, any fucker dumb enough to pay Monte Cook for his retarded writing should be regarded as sub-human, and probably culled from the herd in as humane a manner as expediency allows.

I can’t resist, here’s some unsolicited advice for you Cunte: if you don’t want to hear from assholes during the development process don’t invite them in as investors, you arrogant ungrateful fucking cunt. Just make something and sell it, like a normal motherfucking product. Then you don’t have to have a comments section, or updates, or any other forum where these hooting, braying, short-bus populating WalletThings could dare interrupt your divine peace of mind. Just like your bullshit blog, twat.

    I don’t know, have you seen this thread over at Tipper Gore’s Big Purple Dildo?

    http://forum.rpg.net/showthread.php?703645-Kickstarter-Failstarter-2-Failstopper

    Almost makes me want to side with Monte, especially when you read the comments by that asshat Kaiju Keiichi (recently perma-banned from that leftist conservative enclave for, and I quote, “shitposting”). Kaiju Keiichi was one of the biggest social retards at RPGNet for years, glad to see that piece of feces gone.

    Monte, however, shot his load YEARS ago. Who needs another D&D 3.0 where magic users get all the attention and the better level progression anyway?

    To be fair, he did deliver on his Numenera Kickstarter, without massive delays, and the extra products well on schedule, but YDIS makes a valid point. If you don’t want unsollicited opinions, shut the fuck up and don’t take people’s money so you can make your product in the first place faggot.

    Speaking of Bloodystoolmage, I had a generous Blooey related early Xmas gift for you guys, but fuck it. Santa told me you were pricks and shouldn’t get anything. Besides, I think I can make a cool fitty grand off a Kickstarter for it. Give me bucks, and I give you yucks. Stay tuned (a portion of proceeds will go to both the realization of Blooeycon, and hurricane relief for those ugly Phlips out in the Pacific. But most importantly; Blooeycon).

    By and large, most “advice” given by investors is along the lines of, “Just finish writing the product, man.” Once one has obtained the money that one has begged for, one needs to learn to shut up or otherwise deal gracefully with said advice from one’s investors, especially considering that by now it must be apparent to many investors that most RPG kickstarters are at best well-meaning pipe dreams that never pan out, at least in those instances when they aren’t outright scams.

    That said, anyone who throws money at a product that hasn’t been completely written and drawn beforehand deserves to never be reimbursed in any way for his foolish gamble.

    This would be a good time to remind enthusiasts that RPG writing isn’t rocket science; never has been and never will be. Nobody needs to to be supported during the writing, drawing, and editing stages. 99.99999% of this generic pap can be written up on the fly during one’s 10-minute breaks at work and e-mailed home with no obvious decline in quality.

    And – sorry, folks – most current RGP art is laughably amateur scribbling that isn’t worth waiting for.

    I know, I know – preaching to the choir here. Must be in a mood. Grr.

      Normally I’d side with the gamer by default, and Clark’s takedown of Kuntz was classic, but the way he abandoned Necromancer Games and the fans is not too cool. If he truly was posting to ENworld and Paizo while sitting at the bench, as some of the postimes seem to indicate, that is pretty bad.

      • December 9, 2013 12:21 pm

        Shameful confession, I’ve started rooting for the layout guy. “I never understood why we were reprinting um all those spells. I mean I understood the theory but it never really made any logical sense to me to duplicate material that could easily be found elsewhere, just for the sake of completeness so I think just including anything new would make sense. I’m assuming that if somebody’s running Dwimmermount they’re going to know where to find the information. I mean it’s not like we’re creating um something whole cloth and then we’re trying to introduce people to these concepts. It just seems like we’re making more work than we need to make.”

        But then around 8:00 – 10:00 it breaks down again and the voices start fretting about how they demonstrate how true to the pope’s legendary vision they are. Like it’s the dead sea scrolls.

      • December 9, 2013 12:27 pm

        I got a dumb question: how many hours a month are they actually working on this fucking thing and how many hours a month are they spending on project management? Because the first kind of hours add up to something in the backers’ lifetime and the second kind don’t.

        Meanwhile, Skarka missed November delivery again this year and backers are publicly wondering whether he’s alive. I hope he is because someone OR SOMETHING keeps sharing Firefly and Wil Wheaton links on his G+ feed about as frequently as Judge Orcus blogs from the bench.

        “Map booklet” sounded familiar so I started wondering why they were still fucking around with the maps when the map book was supposedly in print proofs on October 11. Then I see that the illustration book was ready for GenCon distribution and then a month ago Tavis was hoping to authorize print and ship of that piece “right away.”

        Guys, once a piece has been crossed off, it’s done. Don’t keep fucking with it. Leave it alone and put out a fire somewhere else. Or if it’s not done, don’t cross it off. Either way, I know you’re all busy but either Dwimmermount is mission critical or it ain’t.

        In related news, the second coming of Petty Gods was expected “Sept/Nov” but that guy has been so busy starting a zine it looks like that once again deadlines are the only thing getting blown in the OSR this year. Sorry to get your hopes up again, contributors!

        A fucking answer, all you backers glued to this troll site! Around 48:00 they’re going to get to start laying out the dungeon proper next month, although the faction chapter and cosmology sections are still AWOL.

      By what defenition of ‘scam merchant’ is Cook a scam merchant? He makes stuff. People buy that stuff. He kickstarts. People give him money. He delivers on the stuff he said he would make more or less on time. Is there any reason to suspect he took a massive share of that kickstarter to pay off stuff that was totally unrelated it?
      A lot of people like his stuff. A lot of people don’t. He might be a hack with a sense of entitlement, long past his prime and running mostly on rabid fanboys, but we don’t actually have any proof he scammed anything.
      Is a comparison with the likes of Jmal, Nystul or John Adams really warranted? Can we not simply call Monte Cook an entitled Hack and be done with it?

      I think, for Alexis, “fun” must equate to “funny” or “humorous.” Of course, for most people (including those that write dictionaries), “fun” means “enjoyment.” People can “enjoy” an activity even though they do not smile, laugh, or otherwise express glee during said activity. Competition can be fun (sports), physical exertion can be fun (rock climbing), even fear can be fun (roller coasters). I don’t think there’s much enjoyment in Alexis’ life; however, he says some “funny” things in his post (and by “funny,” I mean “batshit crazy.”)

      “sordidly humping the air like an [sic] Californian prat on the fucking Tunisian tour of Star Wars film locations” Wow, there’s a lot of hate in that phrase.

      “there are ways to get the party arguing about something meaningless and time-wasting” How can anything in Alexis’ campaign be meaningless and time-wasting? Alexis wasn’t PREPARED; he’s not taking D&D SERIOUSLY enough.

      “admit that if there was no kindergarten teacher we would have spend [sic] our fifth year of life gouging out the eyes of our childhood peers like bloodthirsty animals” Holy mother of mongoloids, I wouldn’t wish Alexis’ childhood on anyone.

That’s a good indicator that you have nothing to say. Another indicator you have nothing to say is that you leave a comment on YDIS about how much you identify with Nick fucking Nolte. Ah, you’re just having fun is it? Why don’t you and Alexis collaborate on a definition of “fun”? (Hint: It does not involve you seeking attention with inane comments.)

      • December 10, 2013 9:12 am

        Kent can’t be bothered with trivialities of running a blog, he’d rather ride the coattails of YDIS than put forth effort on his own. And speaking of coattails, I wonder how much traffic Alexis’s blog has garnered from all the attention he generates from here?

    Everyone’s favorite black magic Odin yodeler, Greyhawk Grognard laments that lost in the ‘hullabaloo’ of Nelson Mandela’s death you might have been unaware of the passing of a prolific sci-fi author, Colin Wilson. Not that Mr. Wilson was listed in Appendix N, wrote anything gaming related but our boy in black doesn’t let an opportunity pass without giving a back handed comment concerning all the media attention over the death of a man opposite the political spectrum from himself, he also manages to slip in a Nietzsche reference.

    Genius.

    Maybe he shouldn’t have been so quick to remove his political blog links from his gaming blog. Seems like he has a lot of steam to vent out from under that black turtle neck.

    I’m sure we’d all like to forget this summer’s debacle where TSR’s resident frog, Bruce Heard led an army of devoted crusaders against an Australian cancer surviving housewife and her books that Wizards didn’t even bother to give a half shit about. And by forget I mean we would like to forget how that even became an issue; let us always remind Brannan that he’s not just a lesbian-witch trapped in a man’s body, he’s practically a Vichey nark himself.

    So Bruce Heard is about to debut his kickstarter for World of Calidar and the explorations of the airship RIP-OFF. More Princess Ark stuff he couldn’t technically make under the Princess Ark. Maybe if he just self-published it he could, but that would require shelling his money when he could easily get some from KS.

    http://bruce-heard.blogspot.com/2013/12/KS02.html – the Kickstarter begins tomorrow. I’m not suggesting anyone going overboard but it might be a good idea to watch the development just in case Bruce starts ripping more stuff off from Mystara and we need to step in to protect Wizard’s IP.

        I wonder if anyone wants to guess where Bruce will land in the spectrum of TSR luminaries turned OSR Kickstarter publisher. Are we looking at another Mike Nystul, where he takes the money and runs back to France? He’s made comments how much he loves the Mediterranean sun over Wisconsin cold. Or are we going to see another Monte Cook? A self-important, impotent twat that at least released Numenera without major incident.

  28. December 10, 2013 5:09 pm

    Good call on the Monte Cook thing. Don’t want to be subjected to comments? Get off interwebz, pussy! Honestly, these gaming “auteurs” are so motherfucking entitled! OSR or not, it’s a massive social-media circle jerk–no civilians allowed! Self-referential, narcissistic faggots.

    Following Fatty’s wonderful suggestion, I purchased ‘Bad Myrmidon’ (although I think ‘Morbid Myrmidon’ would have been a much better title).

    Eagerly, I perused the wilderness encounter written by Raggi. Without spoiling it too much, it involves a 14th level fighter with Down Syndrome. However, Raggi neglects to supply either the effects of Down Syndrome in D&D terms or the stats for the NPC. This is the quality of Raggi’s contribution. Raggi = lazy fuck (although we knew that)

      Ow wow. It’s like they are challenging you to give less of a fuck.

      Perdustin, allow me to supply you with a homebrew Down’s Syndrome Template i’ve been keeping on my pc for just such an occasion. It is in 3.5 style though, so you will have to do some conversion, but this is in the spirit of the OsR.

      I might bring out a deluxe supplement on Kickstarter compatible with Labyrinth Lord, OSRIC, Astonishing Swordsmen and Sorcerors of Hyborea, RuneQuest, Traveller, Vampire the Masquerade, Monopoly, Call of Duty: Ghost Protocol and Tag but that is only for backers who donate 100 $ or more. It shall be named the Liber Insulsi, and will contain templates for retards, mongoloids, lepers, and Kent.

      Down’s Syndrome Template(mongoloids)

      HD: As base creature.

      AC: +1 political (in)correctness bonus.

      Attacks: As Base creature. 1 natural weapon as slam attack appropriate for creature of its size.

      Abilities: Str +4 Dex -2 Con +2 Int -6 Wis -4 Cha +2(retards are adorable)

      Very Special Abilities:

      A Sucker is born every minute(ex): Whenever a Down’s Syndrome Creature is targeted by a Kickstarter campaign from an OsR luminary of quasi-famous rank or higher, the creature must immediately succeed at a Will Save(DC 10+maximum number of times Gary’s Robe was touched in one month+number of Basic or AD&D modules published under TSR + half number of OsR modules published) or be forced to support it. If the Kickstarter is obviously failing, a scam, or of obviously inferior quality to what was promised, the Down’s Syndrome Creature is allowed another saving throw every month the product is overdue. The DC increases by +2 for each saving throw after the first. This effect is cumulative.
      If the OsR luminary contributed to Dragon Magazine at some point, the DC is doubled.If the OsR luminary actually played in Geneva, the Down’s Syndrome creature automatically fails its save. This is a mind-affecting effect.

      Gamer Stockholm Syndrome: Whenever the Down’s Syndrome creature is under the effect of A Sucker is born every minute and defending its OsR Luminary, the creature gains Logic Resistance 20 and a further +2 denial bonus to all saving throws, attacks and damage.

      Saves: As base creature.

      Habitat: The OsR.

      CR: As base creature +1

        That’s simply inaccurate. Many, many RPG companies–including some of the big ones like White Wolf–release very few adventures. It’s really on WotC and Paizo that release lots of adventures (I’m not counting the companies who *only* exist to publish adventures).

    80some People Owe You An Apology
    So +John Stavropoulos finally finished his exhaustive, 10 months-long, unbelievably Lawful Good research into whether 80 RPG freelancers and commenters (many of them his friends) actually are taking what they say about rape online seriously.
    Basically: months ago, Ben Lehman (author of tedious RPG products) claimed James Desborough (author of different tedious RPG products) was “Someone who threatens their critics with rape”
    Now I hope I don’t get an argument when I say this isn’t something you just casually toss out there .
    Right?
    Even if it was an honest mistake–you really really check first before saying someone did something that shitty in a public place.
    Right?
    Like: this is an ethical standard you hold yourself to
    The short of Jon’s research is this accusation turned out to be bullshit even though 80some people +1ed it and it got shared all over the RPG internet.
    Now Jon didn’t name names, because he “doesn’t want a witchhunt”. Which is respectable. But I’m not Jon and I do think the RPG community as a whole deserves an apology from every single one of these people for confusing and distorting a very real and very serious issue of real violence that actually affects peoples’ lives.
    I also think the RPG community deserves to know who they cannot trust in conversations about ethics. Anyone on the list below who hasn’t apologized has the opportunity to do that now.
    Or at the very least Un-Plus One Ben Lehman’s totally irresponsible public bullshit.
    The 79 people (including RPG freelancers) who signed on to Ben’s totally unsubstantiated accusation, before today (see below) via +1’s were

    Here are the results of Jon’s attempt to dig down to the facts:

    This is Jon talking

    Final Update:
    I’ve gone through many emails, links, and messages on this subject.

    To review:
    —————————
    1. James has been accused of allegedly threatening his critics with rape.
    —————————
    2. James has been accused of allegedly being a rape apologist.
    —————————
    3. These are serious allegations and as someone with friends and family who have been raped, I don’t take this topic lightly.
    —————————
    4. There is a track record of people spreading misinformation about James. One clear example, there was a petition against James that included libel.
    —————————
    5. I don’t know James, I don’t care for his work, and I disagree with many of his opinions (for example, I’m strongly in favor of anti-harassment policies at conventions, have written several, and have implemented many). I’m not here to defend James. James was one of the first people I blocked on G+ for reasons unrelated to any of this (he made fun of vegetarians).
    —————————
    6. I’m personally disturbed by the seemingly vast number of people who seemingly accepted the above allegations as seemingly truth or who strongly suspect these allegations are false but have said nothing.
    —————————
    6. As a potential consumer of products and services from companies affiliated with James and as someone who is very aware how these topics can destroy people’s lives, I would like to know what is going on.
    —————————
    7. So I asked anyone to send me proof. In this thread. In email. Anonymously. In any way that anyone is comfortable with.
    —————————
    8. I’m going to present what I know and move on from this topic. Don’t ask more from me. I’ve dedicated a lot of time to it, and have chosen to end several friendships because of it.
    —————————
    9. This is NOT a witch hunt. I’m not going to name names. This isn’t about shaming. Part of the point of this thread is to fight against potential witch hunts (which some have alleged that James may have been the target of). I’m not an attorney, judge, or jury, and my words are primarily opinion. You should make up your own minds.
    —————————
    10. The rules for this thread still stand, don’t post unless you have proof.
    —————————

    That all said, I’ve received several links in this thread that I’ve reviewed and you can read about in detail above. Additionally, I’ve received many more emails on this topic.

    Let me flat out, in the clearest way possible state:

    I have received NO information that proves, in my opinion, that James has allegedly threatened his critics with rape.

    Unfortunately, the rape apologist allegation is much more complicated and the more I look into it, confusing. Why?

    The definition for rape apologist seems to vary substantially and it’s often unclear what definition someone is using.

    One (of many) definition is that a rape apologist is someone who argues that rapists have no control over the sexual temptation they experience in response to the victim, therefore the victim could have avoided awakening the irresistible rape temptation by behaving differently. From what I’ve seen, I don’t think it is reasonable to accuse James of any of this. But we don’t know what definition of rape apologist someone is using.

    Another (fairly different) definition is that a rape apologist is someone who communicates that rape isn’t really rape or claims that allegations of rape are untrue or exaggerated. Some have claimed that James may match this definition because of statements here, http://talesofgrim.wordpress.com/2013/06/21/kickstart-your-tart/, specifically: “I’m sure RAINN does a lot of good work but they’re mostly known – to me – for their promotion of what appear to be vastly inflated rape statistics. I am deeply uncomfortable with my objection to the project having lead, indirectly, to funding an organisation that seems to use and abuse poor statistics. I don’t, personally, believe that you need to inflate the figures. Rape is a horrible crime and making people more afraid than they need to be doesn’t help.” and James links to a controversial news article http://goo.gl/HuCk7 which contains problematic content (an article which makes me personally uncomfortable), but it’s impossible from James’ blog post to determine if James agrees with the specifics of that news article, or if he is simply linking to it to explain his hesitation with RAINN itself.

    Another (again, fairly different) definition is that a rape apologist is someone who is an apologist for rape culture (which we would need to nail down exactly what rape culture means to argue this point as this terms also has several definitions that many don’t agree on) and may not be a direct apologist for rape itself. This definition is so potentially large and potentially vague that you could potentially accuse many people of various degrees of supporting rape culture or being a rape apologist for rape culture. It’s very difficult, using these definitions, for me to make any definitive judgments on this topic.

    Given the vagueness of what rape apologist might mean, I don’t want to potentially add to any potential misinformation to this topic, so I won’t. I’m going to move away from the whole rape apologist thing and concentrate on the more serious primary allegation.

    While rape apologist may be an unclear term, alleging that James has threatened his critics with rape, is not in my opinion, unclear at all. So let me repeat again, in the clearest way possible:

    I have received NO information that proves, in my opinion, that James has allegedly threatened his critics with rape.

    Does that mean there is no proof to be found? No. But I don’t have any proof to offer and no one I know has it or is willing to share it. And given the seriousness of these allegations, I feel VERY uncomfortable with people alleging such things with such absolute statements and no information to back them up. Given that, I’ve been moved to do all this work and share it with you. Additionally, I’ve chosen to end several friendship because of this.

    Rape is a serious real problem that affects many people and there is already too much misinformation around rape and it already can be so difficult to prove, that I feel it is important we do what we can to fix these problems. But potentially false allegations, in my opinion, only make this serious problem, worse. And while it is convenient for many to look the other way, I will not.

    Never forget,
    the standard you walk past, is the standard you accept.

    interesting…about a third of that list are already blocked by me (they dont show as links but rather as text in the list)

    I dont know enough about the players to have a strong opinion other than…putting words, especially actionable words, into someone’s mouth can bite you on the ass.

    I also disagree that by not joining in the fray on one side or another that I am somehow condoning something. 

    Eric BoydYesterday 5:47 PM

    Heh, I don’t get this kinda hyperbole. I just needed these to block him, and he said this stuff out loud: “thinks rape is an excellent character motivation and plot point, from an authorial perspective.” “thinks over-reporting rape is a problem (and I think he’s concern trolling here.)”

    Zak SmithYesterday 5:49 PM

    Ben Lehman is also the guy who said George RR Martin thinks “women should be raped to make them docile.”

    If you were burning to death, I’d not piss on you to put you out. Other than that, I totally agree that your social justice penis is longer than whomever you are trying to prove it is longer than. You are a raging canker on the RPG hobby and while I agree that that shit with James got way out of hand this disgusting attempt to shame people is just foul. You disgust me and I don’t know what you hope to accomplish with this. slow clap Nice stunt.

    Thanks for this. It’s easy to throw a +1 down on a friend’s post reflexively and assume due diligence is the default. Sometimes, especially when it comes to accusations this serious, it’s important to remember that extreme claims require extreme evidence.

    Thanks, +John Stavropoulos, for going the extra mile to prove the innocence of someone regardless of your personal feelings toward them. That’s true justice. I’m sorry for what it cost you.

    +James Desborough, I don’t know you, or anything about you, and I was wrong to assume claims made about you were true even though they came from a trusted source. You have my apology.

    +Ben Lehman, I haven’t known you to be the kind of person who would make spurious claims, and I don’t think you did it with malice, just for the record.

    +Zak Smith, thanks for bringing this to my attention and for supporting, as you accurately put it, Lawful Good endeavors.

    It’s not a stunt +Josh Mannon , if you were on the wrong end of a load of abuse you didn’t deserve, or had a load of lies told about you, wouldn’t you hope others would stick up for you, help you out? Well John Stavropulous went a lot of the way and Zak’s just taken the last logical step. The people on that list, including you, owe Desborough an apology, now have you got the bottle to do it? Admit that on this occasion you were wrong?

    Given that I have absolutely no clue what I would be apologizing for, no.

    You might not have started the lie Josh, but your +1 ing it helped give it more weight and credence, when it was just spiteful bullshit.

    Josh MannonYesterday 6:31 PM

    No, I have, since Jon’s post months ago, changed my behavior. I have no way of apologizing to James because I avoid him in every way possible. So, yes, if you want empty gestures then I can do that.

    This isn’t a witch hunt. The evidence is there for everyone to see. This is an exercise in accountability for a community where accountability is usually difficult to exercise. These are real people and real actions even though it’s on the internet, and the stakes are real too. So I support this.

    The problem here is that I think some people have confused “I don’t like James Desborough” with “I can approve of decidedly incorrect character assassination of James Desborough”; and that some of the same people would now think that what they are being asked to do is apologize for disliking James Desborough.

    No one (I think) is saying “you must like James Desborough”, and no one is asking you to apologize for not liking him. You are being asked to apologize for lending your support to decidedly false statements (ie. for lying) about James Desborough, which is quite a different thing.

    +Barry Blatt is right. More than adding credence, it helps spread the lie thanks to the way that Google uses +1s to publish things into other people’s feeds. Taking away the +1 is not an empty gesture, it’s the bare minimum someone can do to stop spreading a vicious defamation. Like it or not, Google itself gives weight to what gets +1s.

    Perhaps it is me, and I normally don’t wade into these discussions, but I think this is important.

    But a witch hunt is only bad because witches don’t exist (at least not as depicted in the accusations) and thus they are always false claims.

    If someone really was flying around at night abducting children and grinding them into stew before committing genocide by giving an entire populace the black death, then it wouldn’t be a bad thing to set them on fire.

    Witch hunts are bad because you are taking an innocent person and convicting them of a terrible crime based on public opinion instead of evidence or facts (which by the nature of a witch trial don’t exist).

    +Tom Zunder , I don’t know you and you may be an awesome bloke who simply reacted with emotion to a truly chilling accusation.

    But you are not being accused of doing something terrible based upon whether or not other people like you or think you make an easy scapegoat.

    You are being accused of doing something based on what appears to be very solid evidence.

    That is not a witch hunt. That is something you really did.

    Huh, a witch hunt for something that was posted 6 months ago about an article that looks like its 2 years old. I encourage anyone who is offended by any post mentioned to do something about it rather than whine on the internet.

    +Josh Elliott This is that something. And you’re being given the chance to do something too. We all make mistakes, even if they were very long ago they’re still mistakes. And in a community where our words are saved and kept semi-permanently as records, even long ago mistakes can have effect.

    A. Miles DavisYesterday 8:27 PM

    I find this utterly fascinating, but Mr. Jon S has had me blocked for quite some time, likely because I said something awful to his friends, the ones who he has found to be at fault.

    Of course, I’m not particularly following James either just because his wordplay isn’t my style.

    But I certainly appreciate when cooler heads can prevail and everyone can just go back to disliking each other on honest terms instead of spreading lies.

    Zak SmithYesterday 8:36 PM

    +Jamie Sue Cool. Thanks.
    +Josh Elliott So the thing you did wrong wasn’t actually wrong because you did it in the summer ? Fascinating.
    The reason it took so long is because Jon made an effort to make sure he was correct before he called anyone out. Unlike you.

    So there are actually people, including Ettin (big surprise there!) actually doubling down on a vicious lie, as if to say “we know he didn’t say it, but because we don’t like him we want to imagine this is the sort of thing he would say; if he was the boogeyman we’ve created in our head to discredit him and the kind of RPG gaming we despise that we’ve decided he somehow represents”.

    I hate to sound repetitive, but you what that makes these guys, right?

    Zak, in my repost of Lehman it was pointed out to me by Mark Cunningham that the writer wasn’t threatened by Desborough. I added “It is true; she received a ton of rape threats from his fans but says none of them were from Desborough.”

    I’m not aware of any further information from Lehman about rape threats to critics.

    Next time there’s an issue, I hope you ride it as hard. Say, like, the 10 billion women who get rape and death threats. I’ve gotten them by the truckloads and I didn’t even write a lot of creepy fucking books about rape first.

    I think Zak better wise up and take the nice guy approach from here on in. He is never going to see the attention he gets in the blOwSR in other avenues or hobbies he has. This is it.

    An update from Faggi on his projects – some nuggets:

    “Kelvin Green has turned in everything for Forgive Us (formerly Horror Among Thieves), still needs editing, layout, etc.

    Rients’ Broodmother has rough layouts completed and the art is starting in.

    There are a couple other things floating around (Conley’s ECW sandbox, Brockie’s Towers Two) that are having work continue on to make them more than what they currently are.”

    Well, holy shit. The “Now or Never” Grand Adventures campaign from 2012 might actually produce some “product” by 2014.

    And that has got to be the most diplomatic Faggs has ever been with regard to the last two pieces of shit. Neither has any substance evidently (but it must have pained him to make that admission considering Tim “I work with kids!” Shorts murder-rapist Mary Sue character Conley let him write up. And honestly, it migh ttake a few years to get Conley’s bullshit edited, considering that most of his editors self immolate to preserve their sanity.

    But seriously it is comforting that 1.5 years after a now-or-never campaign (a dishonest marketing gimmick that Faggs cannot bring himself to address) two of those adventures are finally to the needs-editing-and-rough-layouts stage. Good luck on getting that Gwar faggot to show up.

        Kent attempts cynically but in vain to appeal to Raggi Fans by including spiders that can give you diarrhea. He should have made the diarrhea animate and attack the infected character.

        Gygaxian naturalism points for the Orc King Ghost that subsists entirely on a diet of marble doves and does nothing but harass winged gnomes all day.

        Random encounters include magically appearing stairway covering fungus, which can be encountered even when the party is, in fact, not on a stairway. Presumably the stairways appear out of thin air?

        Unusual pre-occupation with hands, groping, paralysing, grappling or otherwise.

        Weird witch face goblins ritually chopping at duplicate orc kings is a good encounter. Ghoul faces in pool is a good encounter. Silver mask is a decent magic item.

        Kent shows his lack of design experience by needlessly including a poorly drawn self-portrait of himself in his habitual saturday-evening attoire.

    Not to say that every guy who has/has had a cat (or 5) is a fag, but I think it is yet another indictment of gamer dudes in general is that the overwhelming majority of them much prefer cats to dogs. It may have a bit to do with them living in tiny shitbox apartments or their parents basements and it’s an issue of having room for them, but I just think the lamest and pussiest of gamers grew up more with cats than dogs. If your dad was at least half a man, and owned dogs when you grew up, then you are probably more of a man than your gametard bretheren and are a dog lover.

And having some very weird opinions about the bonhomie and joie de vivre of blue collar folks.

        So yeah. This is not about sex.

        No one challenges him on his blog because he moderates comments and because there’s no good reason to care that much about his opinions.

        I check in on his blog regularly because it’s the most consistently entertaining RPG blog I’ve seen. At one point I thought this blog was written by him to get traffic, as that was the only explanation I could think of for talking about him so much.

    One day the Creatures from the Greyish-Green Lagoon were discussing how much the humans, who lived far away in Society, loved to hear their judgements and opinions.

    ‘I have no doubt,’ said some freaky fishface, ‘that the humans hang on our every word.’ He paused to lick slime from a rock. ‘The Fishgod would be cruel if all our thoughts poured out on ydis were ignored by the humans.’

    Suddenly a new Creature, Captain Kirk’s Dick Blood, approached the Greyish-Green Lagoon, ‘hallo, will you be my friends? I want to share my thoughts. I am so lonely.’ CKDB said.

    ‘Jesus look at that disgusting fuckface!’

    ‘Im going to be sick, he is so repulsive,’ said a fishface who had been happily licking a toad’s arse before he saw CKDB.

    ‘Run away !! Run away !!’

    Before long the Creatures discovered a new home which they called The Black Lagoon. The Black Lagoon was in a secret place far from the unbearable stink of Captain Kirk’s Dick Blood, and his opinions. Captain Kirk’s Dick Blood became wrathful, and tilting down his head he looked up through his fishy-fuckface eyebrows at the camera. ‘The Hunchback of Notre-Dame never had it this bad,’ he growled at the camera, looking every bit the fat middle aged incredibly stupid psychopath just like in the documentaries.

        Whats with all the Monte Cook hate all of a sudden?

        Why can’t they leave that man alone!?!?!?

        No seriously, fuck him. Ten years ago, I got some book by Monte Cook (Arcana Unearthed?) that Gygax endorsed and that was after souring out on Cook’s TOEE thing and some PDF of magic items.

        Lets just say after perusing that “Monte gem” that I imagined Gygax like MAD MAGAZINE’s Captain Klutz accidentally wolfing down a bowl of cigarette butts when told how much money he’s getting for endorsing the cereal.

        Wait, on this commentary lets say I imagined everyone with their thumbs up each other’s ass and not just manboobs but distended manginas purulent with smegma.

        Alright, Monte is irrelevant. I don’t believe he can make anything worthwhile in fantasy gaming so why bother? Thats a valid opinion if the guy hasn’t done a single memorable monster and he acts like he’s the crown prince of D&D.

        That said, whats up with the flail hate, motherfuckers? Was it the direction? No it was the lighting.

        No, twas with each telling blow, I virtually drove it into the sickly spine of the BLOWSR and out the shit-stained Pokemon underwear of the anti-BLOWSR!!!

        LET ME STEP BACK.

        Honestly, I don’t even know why anyone would complain or defend about James Maliszewski. So maybe thats the Rosetta Stone for my enigmatic prose. Start there.

    I say that the dude should pay the overhead cause he gets to be king of his own fucking site. Lord of The Unblown.

    All the people who use the site, and the biggest yearly donation tally after holding out the tin cup in the past has been just over two hundy (when somebody like estrogen-whiffing Thorkie say they are contributing, is there any doubt it’s like 5 bucks)? Combine this with how many are pleading poverty and you get yet another chilling insight into these drips.

Soft moonlight filters into the sanctum sanctorum, mingling with flickering candlelight illuminating a box of alergen-free latex gloves and a selection of exotic oils and unguents on the table. The Imperial Exhaulted Librarious Supremous peruses his shelves, running his glove-clad finger along the spines of his rare treasures, clad in a silk robe and slippers. Where to begin?

Or maybe he went with the change up because fish men raping human women was kind of done to death but he just had to work sex in somehow. But man, that cover image with the steriod-buffed fish chicks deep kissing those dudes. Pure blOwSR disgusto lechery.

      If you read the original “Shadow Over Innsmouth, it’s the males of the town banging female fish folk, and the sex is consensual. I think the “inversion” of the roles and the rapeyness are strictly an OSR misogynist pervy-pie spin on things. Besides, male fish don’t even have dongs… there I go with my Gygaxian naturalism again!

    To be fair, most chicks from coastal towns in that part of the country look and smell like fish.

    Outside of Lovecraft, I think there were at least a couple movies in the 80’s that featured sex-crazy fish dudes. In one of them I remember a guy getting buggered, but I think the thing just could not tell the diff between guys and gals, perhaps lacking the hyperactive estrogen scent detection of the whoozy Sir Thorkhammer . More modernly, I predict we are only a TV movie or two away from Sci Fi Channel doing one up about shark rape.

        I find it hard to reconcile the first commenting Kent with the second. The first capitalised incarnation disputes with angry grace, and there’s a sense that the conversation has ended to good profit. The lower-case version just drools and babbles angrily, chewing on the softened corners of his childhood pencilcase in the hope that some nourishing mould remains.

        Either there are two Kents or that homebrewed Guinness induces multiple personalities. Neither option comforts me. I mean, a ‘personator, upon the Internet, a usurper of that most hallowed guarantor of validity we dub the Handle I Use Everywhere? Say ‘t aint so! (ha ha, you said ‘taint’, I gather that’s lewd in the Colonies.) As for the latter… wash your feet ‘fore you tread the peat, mate, the fungus between your toes will spoil your insides for good.

        Of course, the man himself will merely claim he’s fucking with us, in which case my usual censure applies. Whatever good Kapital K Kent might do is undone by the Special K who comes out at the full moon.

I guarantee that you’re too irrelevant to get sued. You’re all either unemployed libertarians or computer programmers who’ve been working in the field for fifteen years but can’t seem to get promoted to “senior programmer” level yet.

His flagship blog Destination Unblown has not had a post in a month and a half. A few of the dozen blogs he’s maintained in the last couple years (comics, chess, cooking) have gone bye bye.

    Most disturbing are his bleak beach posts on his surfing blog jam. Check out those from November, the most recent posts on any of his blogs. He goes to the beach looking for an endless summer during winter and is sad it’s cold and the swell is flat. He laments the commute and having to teach somewhere other than the beach. He tells a young girl who tells him the surf sucks to fuck off. He tries to photo bomb a model shoot and gets rocks thrown at him. He pesters tourists who tell HIM to fuck off. And most chilling of all, he leaves a murder hobo some cash on his windshield without even considering that it will probably be snagged by his surfing hodad bretheren long before the needy chap finds it.

    The premonition, from http://tao-dnd.blogspot.com/2014/01/so-sick-of-if.html:

    Sometimes I think that role-players think a town of 400 people describes the whole population. “Yep, that’s right, there’s the town, and ten feet beyond the town, there’s NOTHING. No camps, no farms, no cottagers out there in the woods, no hunters or woodsmen or people eeking out a living hunting and gathering. Everyone around HERE lives in town, ain’t no other way to live. What’s that you say? Roor-ral? What the fuck is that? Ain’t nobody roorral. We don’t believe in it. A man would have to be an idiot to build a cabin out in the woods, by themselves, where there weren’t no taxes, laws, restrictions on space, rent, vagabonds, thieves or elders to tell him what for. Why, that’d be like living in a free country! Where’s the damn sense in that?”

    Next thing you know, he and Rot Cunts are going to be giving each other reacharounds while they plink squirrels with a .22 from their little love shack in the woods, while an Odin worshipper jams horse cock up his ass and Ol’ Whats-His-Name goes coon hunting.

      “There is so much wishful thinking, stretching of the imagination and downright resistance to social comprehension that there’s no point in my addressing your last comment.”

      (in response to a posted link(wikipedia but still))

      “Let it be, Charles. You’ve made your assertions four times. You haven’t said anything new since the first comment. You continue to assert that history is “this” or history is “that” but as a historian I don’t find any of it has the ring of truth.”

      “Well, I didn’t mean to actually delete that last comment. That was a keying error. Could we please have that link again, Charles. I don’t mind it being up. ”

        high quality roads and gasoline powred trucks to travel on them

        I was gonna play the “all gamers are aristocrats of the mind who would prefer to use the Diderot but waah, it’s too expensive for us mere gamers” card but turns out uncut copies are surprisingly cheap if not actively free. So there’s no excuse for relying on 1950 instead of 1750 to build your fucking world unless you are (a) lazy as ass (b) secretly trying to emulate Eberron’s hot suburban mess of a setting (c) unaware of the difference a couple centuries actually make.

        Lexis further screws the pooch by including Uvarovite in his trade tabels, an extremely rare mineral that was not discovered until 1832. Of course Alexis would claim that this information was all based on our Egalitarian Western cultural frame of reference and historical revisionism and Uvarovite had actually been in use long before that.

        Why stop at Uvarovite? Stop teasing us Lexi, and throw in the Babbage Engines, Textile, Dodecahedron and Decanter of Endless Water industries already.

      • January 22, 2014 6:47 am

        Well, things were so primitive back in 1952, I’ll bet they didn’t even know that Uvarovite wasn’t discovered until 1832. So it’s all good.

        Obviously not, since 1952 is completely identical to the 17th century and people in the 17th century didn’t know they didn’t know about Uvarovite. It’s a miracle they even HAD a calendar in 1952. It’s a miracle they could write things down at all. I bet the 1952 encyclopedia had to be carefully quarried from the cave walls it had originally been painted on.

        If he had imaginary commodities like cavorite, tantulhor and Keoghtom’s Ointment on the charts I’d admire the creative drive behind it. But cavorite wasn’t even made up until 1901 much less exploited commercially! I call shenanigans!

      A real live turd on a game mat would be a refreshing change and more pleasant to endure!

    • PrinceofNothing permalink
      January 21, 2014 6:03 am

      There is a certain tragic irony inherent in JimLotfp’s work. He started out with some decent adventures and ideas, the Green Devil Face Stuff is downright usable, if a bit dickish, Tower of the Stargazer is good fun, as long as you don’t mind stopping the game for half an hour to play a game of Chess/Checkers/Mortal Kombat to decide who lives and who dies in the middle of an adventure. The Random Esoteric Creature Generator is nice(though you could easily make one yourself). The Grinding Gear is Tomb of Horrors with less cheap shots and more puzzling. Death Frost Doom is alright, though i have heard rumours it was based on a module known as Lichway that appeared in White Dwarf.

      But as time progressed and his popularity rose, JimLoftp attempted to do ‘new things’ and ‘be creative and shit’ and ‘push boundaries.’ In his efforts to be creative and out there, Jim started writing Fuck for Satan, the magnificent Joop van Ooms and The Monolith From Beyond Space and Time(and the God that Crawls, but that one gets a pass) . It wasn’t about writing slightly Grim/Dickish/Low Magic Dark Fantasy D&D anymore, JimLopftp was going to blow our minds and revolutionise old school gaming with stuff we had never seen before. If Jim would stop trying to be a tortured artist that is going to blow our minds with stuff never seen before and just go back to writing Adventures i think he could deliver works of reasonable quality. Leave your angst where it belongs, with a psychotherapist(ha ha i said rapist).

      As for the rest, Are you there Geoffry? I know you are. I love you. I never meant to hit you but you drive me so crazy sometimes. Stop frollicking around with your psychedelic emo friends and make Putrescent Pits of the Slime Gods already.

        Faggi has shot his wad and has nothing left except junior high hype. His disciple Geoffie is flaccid as well, relying on others to come up with “Lurid sack” derivatives to build his publishing empire.

        But the creatively challenged recognize their own, and will continue to support them.

      • kaptainvon permalink
        January 22, 2014 11:26 pm

        The vast majority of those fartknockers shoot their wad the day after publishing their OD&D house-rules, as we know full well. I quite like bits of Raggi’s, as it happens, but he’s strayed down the dark path of trying to make a living out of a finitely appealing product. If your RPG is any good at all its core rulebooks will inspire adequate gameplay all alone, and you have no need to sell supplements. Eventually, the sham will out, and you’ll be left recognisant that you ruined a good thing by trying to pay more than a few month’s rent with it.

        Of course, the trouble with Raggi’s core rulebook, as I see it, is that left to itself it’s just a set of rules for Middle-Ages-and-beyond bourgeois characters, with a convoluted sub-system for summoning eldritch nasties. Unless you happen to have some extant ideas for a post-medieval world of bourgeois adventurers dabbling in the Dark Arts, there’s not much there to -give- you some of those ideas. I guess the Weird must be hiding in the grotty artwork that the free version doesn’t have? That Raggi gives away his rules for free and charges for the “GOOORHHH I EAT BABIES AND LOVE THE SATAN VAGINA VAGINA TRVE KVLT SONS OF NORTHERN DARKNESS!” artwork indicates, I think, where his attention and priorities lie, and it sure as hell isn’t in giving us a set of rules that play ‘weird’ well, or he’d want paying for that instead of commissioning graphic filth.

      Clearly Raggi reads YDIS on a regular basis or he wouldn’t have had these pulled down. Fortunately, they are back up so you can download to your heart’s content and provide mocking commentary on the contents within!
