OSR Bracketology, or “Who do we fucking hate the most?”

March Madness is here! Sure you could pay your $20 and fill out some dumb fucking bracket with the rest of the assholes in your office, and Lisa from Accounting who’s a total goddamn retard will end up winning the pot because Syracuse  and Louisville buttfucked your entire bracket. Or you could pay nothing to play along with the original OSR-disapproved version of March Madness. I know what I’m doing!

HOW TO PLAY: Brackets are posted below. It was a struggle to find even 32 blogs worth mentioning, so you can forget 64 and play-in games. Look over the match ups and comment on all of them, or any you feel strongly about: who is the biggest fucking twat, most despicable, etc. Share some of your favorite memories. In a couple days I’ll tally responses, put them through my OSR Slap Fight Simulator, and report results. We’ll whittle our way down until we can crown an overall loser. Start your fucking engines!

    Why isn’t your blog in there?

    Nice.
    I suggest using the following metric when determining the relative assholishness(or CR if the challenge is interacting with them at your child’s birthday party) of each contestant:
    -Navelgazing(1-the percentage of posts that has actual content)
    -Pretentiousness
    -Activity(a neutral stat, high scores indicating more activity)
    -Gygax Worship
    -Uselessness
    -OSR “contribution”(higher stats indicate a larger volume of output and better quality)
    -Shamelessness

    For example, lets stat up Jamal.

    Navelgazing: 7-18(ability scores increase over time)
    Pretentiousness: 14
    Activity: 3 now(technically dead). 16 when alive(17 when kickstarting to avoid work)
    Gygax Worship: 18
    Uselessness: 16-18(increased over time)
    OSR contribution: 7-0(Dwimmermount would almost be a negative contribution)
    Shamelessness: 18

    All abilities are measured between 3-18(i decided to forego the standard 7- or 5-point Likert Scale in favour of a more traditional ruleset).

    Using the following criteria, the relatively lightweight South Region logically ends a in pile of bodies with John Addams struggling to reach his trusty sword Sting through a horde of angry backers before GoPagan calls upon the power of Asgard to win the day. This match could go either way, especially since i do not know who Joesky or Joethelawyer are and am unable to comprehend the contents of their blogs even after a a casual glance. It’s like they are some sort of memetic antimatter or something. Joethelawyer gets points for at least being funny.

    East Region presents a very unbalanced pool, with Zak Smith absolutely dominating the entire scene, followed way in the back by Tenkar. Kent would score higher(but would be unable to compete with one of the few 18s in pretentiousness) if he did not have an activity cycle usually reserved for narcoleptic sloths or inanimate objects. Tenkar is stupid and useless but not abrasive and pretentious enough to really compete with Zak’s asperger-fuelled autistic rants and ceaseless output of smugness and condescension.

    West Region has 3 promising candidates, and forces me to re-evaluate my standards and choose between the man and the blog. However, that is not dead which can forever lie and all that, i put all my money on Jamal(Hee hee hee!), whose escapes have left visible scars in the OsR even to this day. While the OsR might one day get a second Raggi or a second Zak, it can never get a second Jamal.

    North Region would be trounced by any of the likely victors of the other regions if it was not for two beacons of assholishness in a sea of simple utility and mediocrity. James Edward Raggi IV a.k.a Raggs a.k.a the Raggmeister a.k.a Faggi, one of the crown princes of the OSR movement, comically misinterpreting the appeal behind RPG’s, making godawful adventures and struggling daily to make the hobby we love and are kind of ashamed for even more of a social faux pas.
    Against this new power rising in the east stands a power older then the White box. Ego-bloated and covered in moss and Gary’s crusty paper towels stands Ye Great Olde One himself. While Kuntz loses a little credit for sporadically writing a decent module, he makes up for that with his constant self-aggrandizement, copious amounts of vaporware and comically inept buisness shenanigans. Essentially a distilled version of the worst aspects of many others in the blOwsR, Rob Kuntz is the original manchild.
    Any attempt to predict the result of a combat between these two titans resulted in my computer freezing up, the temperature dropping 30 degrees, myself seeing black spots in my vision, passing out and waking up an hour later covered in faeces, vomit and mountain dew and my wall being covered in a thousand random tables in the sumerian tongue written in the squashed ichor of several different kinds of fly.

    I wonder if, when we have a winner, he will have to fight Alexis as the final boss.

    Why no Alexis? Is Tao of D&D still on probation for taking steroids (tranny hormone therapy) or something?

    There are still some very close match-ups out of the gate making for an exciting tournament!

    Here are my predictions, nice and safe, although I’m counting on a big upset by Joethelawyer over Greyhawk Grognard in the Sweet 16.

      Zak Smith over Kent will be a BLOWOUT, but not in the way Kent is hoping for. (I’m talking about fellatio, oral sex, blow jobs etc.)

        I saw his blog a couple of years ago when Zak called him out for failing to salute him, and sent him a 150 question questionaire about why he did not worship his syphlytic harem. AFAIK, that is his claim to fame. I didn’t know he was still around.

      • March 19, 2014 8:13 am

        I think he and Zak had a month long argument over chain mail bikinis.

        I am totally going to win this.

  5. Timotheus permalink
    March 19, 2014 6:49 am

    I guess the criteria here is overall shittiness? Quality and thoughtfulness would eliminate Alex Qaeda, but if the point of this bracket is lack of quality, he should be the prime seed. Just saying.

    Anyway, if the criteria is indeed suckitude, here is my filled-out bracket:

    SOUTH REGION

    #1 John Adams vs. #8 Jeff Rients – The brave fagling’s inability to complete his Apendix N kickstarter compared to Rients’ inability to complete his July 2012 Grande Adventure makes this one close – and Adams sinks one at the buzzer to avoid an upset.

    #5 Joesky vs. #4 Michael Curtis – the Goebbelsian chant of “joesky tax” gets silenced as Curtis makes $3000 dollars asking for a “new” computer – Curtis wins.

    #6 Dungeon Dozen vs. #3 Joethelawyer – clash of the losers – so the lawyer wins.

    #7 Chronicles of Ganth vs. #2 Greyhawk Grognard – Thor intervenes directly in the first round – GOPagan in a walk.

    EAST REGION

    #1 Zak Smith vs. #8 Dyson Logos – Zakina.

    #5 Elfmaids & Octopi vs. #4 Christian Walker – Chris surfs to a victory.

    #6 Nine & Thirty Kingdoms vs. #3 Kent – both have reinvented low standars, but Kunt wins.

    #7 tenfootpole vs. #2 Tenkar – tenfooter is kinda funny, so he loses.

    WEST REGION

    #1 Grognardia vs. #8 Metal Earth – Aos is pretty cool, so he gets the finger.

    #5 Gorgonmilk vs. #4 Gothridge Manor – another clash of losers – Gorgoncum wins because he still hasn’t put out Pussy Gods.

    #6 Venger Satanis vs. #3 Stef Poag – Cthulhu hates antisemitism, so Venger wins.

    #7 Greg Christopher vs. #2 Huge Ruined Scott – Scott is playing Champions now, which is cool, so he loses in a blowout.

    MIDWEST REGION

    #1 James Raggi IV vs. #8 Planet Algol – Faggs.

    #5 Bat in the Attic vs. #4 Bruce Heard – Conloid wins due to his inability to communicate in his native tongue.

    #6 RPG Pundit vs. #3 Tim Brannan – another clash of fags – Lesbian witch boy on general principle.

    #7 James Smith vs. #2 Robert Kuntz – litany of failure vs. litany of bigger failure – Kuntz in a Randian vitory.

    Round 2

    SOUTH REGION

    #1 John Adams vs. #4 Michael Curtis – Stoneheck withers before the Delving Deeper fiasco – the number 1 advances!

    #3 Joethelawyer vs. #2 Greyhawk Grognard – Loki hates fatasses, so Blochhead wins.

    EAST REGION

    #1 Zak Smith vs. #4 Christian Walker – ragged out whores pull Zakie to victory.

    #3 Kent vs. #2 Tenkar – in the most boring matchup of the tournament, the po-po wins.

    WEST REGION

    #1 Grognardia vs. #5 Gorgonmilk – the pope is the pope – he wins.

    #6 Venger Satanis vs. #7 Greg Christopher – Ass Nasticus in a walk.

    MIDWEST REGION

    #1 James Raggi IV vs. #5 Bat in the Attic – The Turd from Beyond outflushes the competition.

    #3 Tim Brannan #2 Robert Kuntz – who cares? Kuntz.

    Round 3

    SOUTH REGION

    #1 John Adams vs. #2 Greyhawk Grognard – Odin hates hobbits – Gayhawk in a romp.

    EAST REGION

    #1 Zak Smith vs. #2 Tenkar – Zakella is shittier – killing blow!

    WEST REGION

    #1 Grognardia vs. #6 Venger Satanis – God vs. Cthuluhu – everybody wins! But the Pope squeaks by due to absenteeism.

    MIDWEST REGION

    #1 James Raggi IV vs. #2 Robert Kuntz – Cannibal Corpse worship vs. Ann Rand Creative type – Kuntz in an upset!

    Round 4

    #2 Greyhawk Grognard vs #1 Zak Smith – Sif is displeased by Zak’s venereal array – Gayhawk gos to the final!

    #1 Grognardia vs. #2 Robert Kuntz – irrelevance vs. irrelevance – the most irrelevant wins – Kuntzie!

    Finals

    #2 Greyhawk Grognard vs #2 Robert Kuntz – Kuntz’ “objectivism” crumbles before the assault of frozen horse dick black magic – GOPagan and proud! wins!

    This was very difficult to do because I hate most, but not all, of them, but I clearly hate Zak S the most. Kind of like the NCAA – Zak Princess is my Syracuse. I don’t dislike Rients or Scott though, I think they are good sports (and worthy of reading).

    How about a version of the “Flattr” payola button Zak signed up for so you fine fucks can ante real money as well as keep score? Maybe call it the “shittr” system. Blogger who racks up the most shittr points at the end of the period advances and at the end the pool goes to the winners.

    Several years ago I got to the point where I was so busy with work and commiting hate crimes on Mexicans and the homeless I stopped following sports so much and could no longer participate in various office pools (plus the millionaire partners always seem to win anyway for some reason – the fuckin’ “man” always wins in the end). I’m sad to say I am in the same boat when it comes to a lot of these wastes of infected jizz in the gaming scene. Zak, Raggi, and a few others are on my radar, but that is about it. I just don’t know enough about most of these guys. YDIS is my only cheat sheet on these douche nozzles.

    But Joe the Lawyer is such a supreme pissant in the scene I decided to study up on this underdog a bit to see what makes him tick, and if he is worth my checking a box next to his name. His last couple or three posts are complete and utter childish dogshits, laid down by an obvious man-child without much to live for other than his worship of Zak (though I still suspect they had a falling out. Joe stopped blogging for well over a month after making a blurb about going to see Zak’s art show in NY).

    So in my research I came across what may be the most idiotic post of all time – a “zine” run (where the fuck is the brick and morter store that sells them?). Worst of all, at the end he gives a shout out to Christian Walker, now +Christian because apparently gamings own Hodad is another coward who has retreated into the safety of the Google echo chamber). He fucking actually is calling for CW to put out more ‘zines. Good lord. There really is no gawd, is there?

    Anyway, this depressed me and I once again lost faith in humanity. So instead of participating in this great and timely competition, I’m going to go about my days at the office for the rest of the week like a soulless robot, daydreaming of the days of yore when you only had to sit at a game table with retards and dipshits, not read about their failed and worthless lives.

    Don’t send any fucking vibes…

      I was wondering where that zine wall was myself since it’s highly unlikely the Complete Strategist has remodeled this century and very few of the things he bought on his spree actually have retail distribution anywhere.

      Turns out he pulled a photo of Barnard’s collection of zines “primarily in the area of women’s studies, featuring personal and political publications on activism, anarchism, body image, feminism, gender, parenting, queer community, riot grrrl, sexual assault, and other topics. They are created by women of color from NYC and other urban areas. The term ‘woman’ applies to anyone who self-identifies as such.”

      I say JtL should be disqualified or given a seperate category. It’s not that he doesn’t meet the criteria, it’s that his blog is so awful and devoid of content i cannot imagine anyone actually reading it. I’m not even sure it’s possible to ‘ read’ it. It’s like describing the colour of an atom or the blind spot in your retinae. So according to Heisenberg he doesn’t so much have an OsR blog as a superposition of all possible OsR blogs.

    When I saw the photo I was wondering when did you guys get together, and did you get together for D&D or some sex. That is, were your medals for D&D or for your first sexual experience.

    Then after YDIS – in panic – added the tag the photo, I was disappointed that YDIS must have found a picture on the web of some guys that look like you guys but are actually not you guys *exactly*. With mongoloids it doesn’t really matter you all look alike though Im sure you see important distinctions among yourselves and so you give yourselves extravagant names on the web rather than say numbers.

    Anyway Im fairly sure YDIS photoshopped himself into the bottom right, a sort of middle-eastern dictator sort of retard (and a great player don’t forget).

    Zakattak sighs and looks up into her eyes and says, “Why, Mandy? Why must I carry the burden of always being right? Why must I be the one to carry the fire to the apes? Would that I could shift this burden.”

    He wipes away a solitary tear, then turns back to the monitor to begin his Sysiphean task, yet again.

      So why is he so clearly unhappy that his fan threads escalate to “shit for brains” inside two posts now? The whole thing is depressing.What’s wrong with you, little lion man? Your boldness clearly stands alone. Clearly!

      What impresses me is Zak’s tenacity. Lesser men would walk away from a failed elfgame argument and get on with life. Not Zak; he has something to prove. Any perceived shortcoming (giggle) of his premise is due to the profound stupidity of his critics and/or the inexplicable ignorance of Zak’s house rules.

      Is it possible to nominate an entire community for the Bracket?

    I can’t read Zak’s ‘too many words’, and I never could finish any of his blog posts, cf Tao. I believe the number of words expended should be proportionate to the idea.

    Verbosity, or the insane interminable monologue, has evolved on forums/internet as a technique to counteract the formerly dominant ‘mot juste’, poisonous and memorable, of the contemptuous aesthete.

        Your rebounding has improved, but you are still giving up too many backdoor plays.

      That tablecloth really ties the gameroom together.

      I’m on Amazon right now. He posted his address, I just need to know a few more deets about that table and I’ll send him a cloth for it. Round or rectangular? I want to go with a nice linen one, but maybe poly-blend or even plastic is easier to keep clean? What the fuck is his real name again… or do you think the mailbox says Bloodymage?

        If you get him one of those red and white waxy tablecloths you find in cheap Italian restaurants, it can double as a battlemat

      “And I need this cumputer working right.”

      Surely a cumputer is a computer used primarily for porn?

        Which would be 90% of them.

      ” I said I’d die a gamer, and I’m dying so bring it on!”
      I really love how Blooey is always so positive, even when he’s being negative.
      Fly and be free, Blooey. Prescott will get its gaming convention even as you lay on your deathbed I can feel it!

        Full name Steve ” Bloodymage” Willet. Also this image has led me to believe Bloodymage is fucking with us.

        “Death to PCs” actually refers to his cumputers (sic).

    Zakattack has been in that thread for two straight days. It is 15 pages long, and 33% of the posts are his. This has got to be the greatest moment in his life.

    I think he is going to go all the way. I choked. Looks like Fear of the Unblown’s bracket is in the best shape right now.

      Oh yeah, Zak’s burning his amphetamine stash at a phenomenal rate. His shit’s gonna get downright Hybird RPG by “C” by the end.

      I think the HIV AIDS Zak S got from that whore Mandy is finally eating away at his brain. 😦

      Notice at about page 22 of that thread, someone called Supergirl (who joined in March) posts to criticize Zak for using the term “whore.” He doesn’t respond at all and then she reposts to ask why.

      Is it possible that Zak lost a player from his harem, and she’s angry and stalking him?
