Open Letter to the OSR + Story Gamers (Inclusion MEGAThread)

July 27, 2016

Hey guys, sorry for the long wait between posts. I’m glad I took a little time off though because recent hubbubs have really made me start to think about building bridges instead of walls. There’s a lot going back and forth right now between OSR people and storygamers (so far the legitimate cosplayers and LARPers have stayed on the sidelines).

I’m an OSR guy but I’ve been lurking Tumblr for a couple days now to get a sense of how the other side thinks. And guess what, guys? They’re not so different from you and me. They like to use their imaginations to play games, just like we do.

So how about we start building some bridges right here? I’m going to start a play-by-post OSR game here on the ol’ blog and everyone’s invited! This is a chance for the OSR people to meet some story gamers, and for the story gamers to see we’re not all a bunch of jerks like Zak S. or Pundit or Scott Driver. Or Varg.

I want to give everyone a chance to tell THEIR STORY within this game, so there will be many chargen options available. Let’s start simple: if you are interested in playing, please browse the following tables and reply with your character race, class, gender identity, ableism context and religion. Thank you and I look forward to a real opportunity to meet new people, build bridges and HAVE SOME FUN!

Race options:

  • Human
  • Dwarf
  • Elf
  • Half-Human
  • Centaur
  • Candy Corn Teifling
  • Hobbit
  • Irish
  • Beholder
  • Gnoblar
  • Robo-Machine

Class options:

  • Fighting-Man
  • Fighting-Other
  • Magic User
  • Thief-Acrobat
  • Cleric
  • Rune Warlock

Gender identity options:

  • Male
  • Female
  • Queer [specify subspecies in brackets for +5% EXP bonus]
  • Trans
  • Neutrois
  • Cuck
  • Cislunar
  • Genderfluid
  • Vagiantess
  • Gymnosperm
  • Bromosexual
  • Tinglesexual (added, thank you Bigby’s Fist)

(Let me know if I missed anything, I’m still new to this!)

Ableism context:

  • Able
  • Differently able [specify mutation in brackets, e.g. wheelchair, hearing/sight disinvolved, third nipple, acid blood, Mongoloid-abled, Libertarian, etc.]


  • Cthulhu
  • Scientology
  • Viking

(I’m only allowing 3 religions because I’m creating custom lists of cleric spells and I just don’t have time to make separate lists for Christians, Jewishers, Muslims, Aum Shinrikyo, etc.)

    OT… I just listened to Kent’s podcast:

    What the fuck was up with that whisper? Was he afraid his mom would catch him? And the redundancy… I lost count of how many times he said “DM”. I’ve long maintained that Kent was a dimbulb, but before tonight I would have rated his cranial capacity as “australopithecine”. Now I’d rate it as “stegosaurian”… Kent must have a ‘second brain’ (to be accurate, a big nerve ganglion) at the base of his spine to operate his rectum.

    For the record, the Kentrosaurus had one of the smallest brains in relation to body size. When Edwin Hennig named the type specimen, he must have had a premonition.

    I am most often asked for updates to entries on my Intelligence Scale but the truth is while measures might become more precise as further information comes in, intelligence is a stable attribute fixed early in life.

    The second most often asked question I receive is,

    “Hi Kent! Love your Intelligence Scale. Is it possible that **Bigby’s Affirmative Consent Lubed Fist** rating could fall below 1/100? 1/100 is extremely rare. It is kinda funny that a douchebag like that is also the dumbest guy in the OSR.”

    Thank you for your questions. Yes, in my research, even in comic books like **The Beano** I could not find characters that rate below a 1/10. The fact that **Bigby’s Affirmative Consent Lubed Fist** is also a douchebag is different because he was not born that way but grew into the role actively and voluntarily.

      I’d be remiss if I didn’t point out the irony of Kent responding to accusations of redundancy by trotting out the same cretinous joke for the umpteenth time. I doubt the Whisperer in Dorkness could come up with something original even if Raggi offered him a tun of cheap whisky and a Geoffrey-abducted catamite.

        If you reviewed some Jaquays and Melan stuff and WG4 Tharizdun and Embertrees/Starstone with judgement, that is came to the same conclusions I do, then your rating could bump up to 3.5/10 or thereabouts.

        Or, even if you explained why reviewing mountains of shit is more important than analysing a few classic works as best you can, that might be worth a slight bump.

        ====The best Melan stuff, which is the best the OSR has offered so far and the clearest insight into his thoughts on D&D is found in his campaign journals on Dragonsfoot and not in his modules.

      Scott’s response to my comment here drops him to a 2.5/10, barely above the average for a forum dweller. This has long been coming and reluctant on my part because I like Scott and think he is a cool guy and handsome guy for an american hipster. However Scott doesn’t have a firm grasp on how smart he is and this makes him lazy and dull like a well-frocked flabby creamcake fed aristocrat who thinks she is a beautiful dancer.

      I came very, VERY close to removing your comment, because it violates the comment policy that is laid out very specifically in the sidebar, as well as duplicating material covered in the FAQ, particularly #12 – regarding why I am not obligated to give a flying fuck about freedom of speech in the comments section of my own personal blog. I’m erring on the side of not, because you were at least respectful, and because I’m tired of playing whack-a-mole with the comments on this post.

      So. In short, what Kent said.

      But also, if I – an indie games publisher who is entirely self-educated on these issues – can manage to poke huge, gaping holes in the “diversity” depicted by D&D, how much easier would it be for YDIS to hire a goddamn diversity consultant? Especially when diversity is one of the selling points they keep hitting in their publicity.

    “Rust Nuts”

    Robo-Machine (actually a cyborg – his ass and one finger are still flesh, so he can pick n’ sniff when he thinks nobody is watching)

    Bard (but doesn’t get laid cause he’s not very good at music and storytelling, and thinks nobody is watching when he picks n’ sniffs)

    Trigger: when he smells cheap lotion it reminds him of his teenage girlfriends bedroom from the 80’s; causes him to curl up in a ball and remain in catatonic state for D30 full turns as he hallucinates about all the guys she must have been with since. If exposed to porno will snap out of it in D3 combat rounds. In such a case he’ll wake up and go “Moe, Larry, the porn! Moe, Larry, the porn!”

    Hmm…any suggestions on how I can flesh him out a bit more (abstractly that is; I only want his ass and that one finger to be flesh).

    And where to I fall in OSR or storygames? Well, I prefer to play OSR games, but would really like to be around chicks half my age, so thinking of getting into 5th edition. Most of the girls I’ve played with are around my age and look like Janet Reno (there’s a timely reference for you other olden folks).

      Now? He’s always been a mental health expert! Don’t you know that every MFA degree comes with a bonus degree in psychiatry?

      This shit has been part of his rhetoric forever: it’s other people who are “deranged,” “crazy,” and “mentally unstable.” Of course, the root symptom–never to be discussed–is that these people are crazy because they disagreed with something Zak said or thought he could have been nicer about in the way he said it. Clearly, it’s not the person who can’t handle disagreement–who needs total, abject compliance–who is mentally unwell.

      Remember, it is Internet Libel to say something mean about Zak (PROVE IT OR YOU’RE A LIAR) but if Zak says someone is nuts we best believe him without proof because not believing Zak is an ATTACK AGAINST HIM AND ALSO WOMEN.

      I am reminded of the (now-deleted) occasion on which cheekily calling out the pointless aspects of his thought experiments was deemed a sign of madness on my part. Apparently it takes a loon to recognise a stupid question these days, and a sane man to claim that stupid and real are mutually exclusive.

      The thing is, of course, everything he’s saying is true… but not as often as I suspect he’d like it to be. Sometimes, people disagree for reasons which have nothing to do with them being barmy.

        I am in no position to go around making claims about Zak’s sanity, or anyone’s really, but I do note that mental illness is all too often weaponised by the afflicted who see a tidy way to short-circuit argument or debate. See also: “I’m autistic so I get to act like an insensitive prat who doesn’t believe other people exist or grasp the concept of dual standards”.

        Corollary to the corollary: I hear that sometimes these people aren’t mental AT ALL. Keep it under your hat though. Wouldn’t want to gaslight anyone.

      I think what my fellow Official Wizards Consultant (one of the leading guiding lights of the most successful role-playing game edition of all time, along with myself of course) is reaching for is “the political abuse of psychiatry in the Soviet Union.” Naturally the prospect of such power being wielded by anyone other than me makes my skin curdle and my blood crawl. Imagine what a piss-pan censor and tyrant like Steve Wieck would do if he could have his political “enemies” written off as mentally ill:

      Oh, my “character sheet?” Very well. I would identify as a Half [spicy Latin lover / pensive Azhkenazim / full Canadian] Rune Warlock [write what you know] Genderfluid [grow up, everyone has fantasies plus I invented trans characters you know] Able Scientologist [chtulhu is for pansies who can’t handle the Real Power].

    First, I would like to share continuing news about my life partner, Ernest G. Gygax Jr. (I am Ben Poiré here posting under his account and considerable girth): Ernest is doing extremely well, sober and very well from a health point of view, considering his moribund obesity. His strength is coming back with each day (currently to the point he is like a 6 year old girl), and his resolve is adamantish. We are in communication with each other every few days or so, whenever we remember this kickstarter, until such a time we go back to the material and maps I’ve been pumping out like French-Canadian sewage for the project, at which point we are going to assess the extra material together and Ernest will add his personal tweaks and touch to what I extrapolated from our original “concepts.”

        “Genderqueer” basically applies to anyone these days, actually. If you’re not 100% fitting exaggerated ideas of a pure gender, you’re genderqueer for all intents and purposes. Wundergeek’s “asexual” think is funny though, where did the kid come from? Did her husband rape her? Or is the kid adopted, which is even sadder.

        The other thing is the mental illness bullshit. Considering how easy it is now to be diagnosed with some form of mental illness, it’s no surprise almost all of the loud RPG folk who win the internet with their famous blogs and tweets, are admittedly mentally ill. Zak of course being the exception. Out of all of them, he’s most likely the only one who is legitimately insane. I could claim insomnia, which was “diagnosed” to get a medical marijuana card, as my mental illness. Then I’d be able to hang out with all the cool kids…

    And we have the worst fucking Caller ever. Three days, a dozen blOwSR-storyfag characters generated, and Von hasn’t asked a single fucking question of our DM about the tavern we are all meeting in, only whether we want to hear about his Vampire slashfic. He hasn’t even designated a mapper.

      I was waiting for Kent and Scott to declare their characters, but it looks like they’re going to be little shits who don’t want to participate 😦

      “Welcome ye adventurers! From many lands have ye come, together to journey to… The Borderlands at the very edge of The Realm! This is a rough land say some, but who are you to judge whence civilization ends or begins? We DO NOT JUDGE, we accept that experiences and contexts are unlimited and we embrace them all, for everyone has value.

      “The Keep on the Borderlands is the gateway to many adventures. Only, like, a quarter mile away are tons and tons of caves ripe for exploration. It makes little sense that there’s a big, bustling castle and then literally just a couple minutes down the road there’s a monster apartment complex, but no WE DO NOT JUDGE, especially not the plot of our adventure.

      “The group approaches the closed gates of the Keep, guards peer over the walls at you and you hear snickering and maybe a catcall or two. A chamberpot is emptied perilously close. Will you weary travelers be let in?!? You may need to state your claim to be admitted…”

        Kent and Scott can show up and play NPCs, henchmen and supporting roles. After we get the feel for them (and vice versa), they roll up their PCs and continue from there.

        They could also opt to not play at all and just observe. But before we instituted this policy, we would end up spending anywhere from 5-30 hours one-on-one with a new player for him to roll up a PC and have him play in our game.

    July 31, 2016 5:07 pm

    I’m going to apologize in advance for metagaming here…

    I know we haven’t picked a party mapper yet, but I’ve been counting the hexes on the initial players’ map, and I noticed that it doesn’t quite correspond with the classic B2 map. A closer perusal of the map revealed that the tamarack stand in the swamp has been replaced by a grove of Quercus aliena trees, which explains why dotorimuk is on the tavern menu.

    Putting these clues together, I realized that the map closely resembles that of the Korean peninsula. The keep would correspond with Kumhwa, which makes the Borderlands the DMZ. I suspect that our tricksey DM, while implying that he’s running Keep on the Borderlands, has subbed it out for Ass Eaters of Pyongyang.

    If correct, I think he was trying to put us off the, forgive me, scent, by mentioning that Kent and Scott aren’t playing. I suspect that Kent will reprise his role as Kent Jong Un- who better to play a dim authoritarian megalomaniac than a dim authoritarian megalomaniac? Scott will probably play his sinister henchman Scottjob.

    Ass Eaters of Pyongyang has one of the tensest vignettes in any campaign I’ve ever played in. My player character was captured, strapped down into a chair, and menaced by a tattoo-gun wielding Scottjob:

    “Do you expect me to talk?”
    “No, Mr Fist, I expect you to look like a hipster stripper in a Portland alt-nudie bar.”

    I will defer to our caller, but I figured I’d bring some metagame knowledge to bear so we can better prepare. My character will attempt to pilfer a “Protection from Prolapse 10′ radius” scroll in the keep before the party heads out.

  26. Captain Kirks Dick Blood permalink
    July 31, 2016 5:24 pm

    Well, I should have done this before the campaign, but I really thought there’d be a few hundred posts about who Kunt thinks is dumbest here (that long, repetitive boxed text I mentioned earlier) and in the OSR before we got around to it. Anyway, I posted to DF about my character “Rust Nuts” just to see what the nimrods think about him (I was hoping T. Foster would chime in with old school praise). It turns out that his background, and couple of character traits, are very troubling to older gamers. Seems it cuts close to home. So I would like to start a new character since we have yet to enter the keep. Cool?

    Willet Fumbledick

    Former soldier (supply sergeant); writer/merchant
    Hometown: Golanda
    Abilities: unknown substance oozes from skin. Paranoia.
    Immunities: criticism. Logic.
    Weaknesses: retirement home meatloaf. Female dog walkers much older than him. Complete and utter faith that the OSR will help a brother out.
    Goals: open a shop called “Polyhedraramadamadingdong” at the local marketplace to sell his writings to a willing populace.

    Oh, and he’d be happy to take on the role of mapper.

    Since our caller situation seems in flux, I’ll just go ahead. While the party is busy dodging turds from above, he inserts himself among them to join the party. He heard there is a pretty nice tavern with good food, and if he hangs with a crowd it’s easier to do the ol’ D&D (Dine n’ Dash). He holds up the book of children’s poetry he wrote, “Da’ Orcs A’ Fa’ Down,” and cries up to the guards “Buy some product! I gotta keep the candles lit fer Christsake!”

    • July 31, 2016 5:32 pm

      Since we’re doing this, I find a full trash can next to the stockade and flick my lit Toro Toro Churchill in it when the guards are distracted.

    • August 1, 2016 3:35 am

      I accept the temporary and non-judgemental role of caller.

      Voxel Legoday the dutch elf player-agencies a soapbox into existence and attempts to use rhetoric/dialectic to sway the guards into abandoning their posts and joining the fight for inclusion and narrative agency.

      “My people.

      We have come far. But a mere second on the cosmic hourglass ago, our ancestors crawled from pelagic shores and found the world cold, cruel and triggering. Whilst many chose to accept this for what it is, some aspired to more.

      From flint and bone we fashioned elfgames to educate our savage kindred on the true and glorious path. But progress is often fraught with peril, and the first elfgames were brutal, broken things. Players were expected to play whatever was dealt out to them by the random hand of fate. Player agency was not respected. The game was ruled by a vile autocrat and its rules were a product of institutionalised marginalization. Hurtful playstyles turned the greatest of men into cruel mysogonists and the least of them in little more then beasts (Donald Trump supporters :().

      In time these cruel games were trampled and their corpses piled upon the ramp towards True Progress. A golden age is on the brink. But there are those among you that still yearn for the old days, that are not inclusive, that cause thousands of rapes. They call themselves the OSR, this spectre of the ancient times.

      Will you, brave genderqueer, nonbinary people of colour stand idly by whilst these foul revenants attempt to restore the rightfully vanquished era of western colonialism and erase forever more the chance of a narratively-driven, inclusive, meaningful future for elfgames? Will we let the ability to explore important meaningful themes and ask deep questions be replaced by meaningless dungeoncrawling?

      I say we shall not. I say we shall don our armours on this day, daubed white, and gather our bannerwomen. Let no player be without agency and no privelege remain unchecked. Together we will crush patriarchy! Who amongst you is woman enough to join me?”

        Princess Kasimia facepalms her main eyeball with another of her eyeballs. Another of her eyeballs is recording the homoerotic goings-on behind her – properly dressed up in a popular media property of the day, this will mean major kudos among her circle of textual poachers and recreational pornographers. Another of her eyeballs is closing itself so she can plausibly deny that she was watching porn – I mean, it’s an exploitative industry, isn’t it, except when it’s an empowering one.

        I actually made a citizen’s arrest a few nights ago. I was sitting in my office making some ad hoc schedule changes to deal with the Pokemon Go menace when I heard a couple of loud reports. I poked my head out the back door of the building in time to see a bottle rocket whizzing across the property in the general direction of one of our wooden outbuildings.

        I raced out the front door and across the parking lot and saw two dumbfucks on the property. I rolled up on them bugbear style- large and fierce, and surprisingly stealthy. I called the police emergency number, and when the two idiots saw me, hit them with the beam of a high powered flashlight to blind them.

        The quicker thinking of the two started toward the exit, but I’m thinking ‘devil take the hindmost’, and cast Bigby’s Affirmative Consent Interposing Fist between the slow guy and any avenues of escape. At this point, he has his hands up and keeps saying, “I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I’m sorry.”

        I told him, “If you move so much as one inch, you will be a v-e-r-y unhappy person.”

        He whined, “You’re letting him get away?”

        “I got you, that’ll suffice. You’re going to help the police get him. Now, don’t say another word, save it for the cops.”

        When the cops arrived, I explained the situation and gave a description of the other guy and his direction of travel. The cops then started grilling the dumbass. He spun a sorry tale of his friend from out of state losing his job and the two of them getting drunk and having to blow off some steam.

        One of the cops tells him, “Call your friend and tell him to come back here, or he will be facing more serious charges.”

        The cop asks him for ID and the guy tells him that he’s never had a driver’s license. Twenty-seven years old, lives at home with his parents, and never learned to drive.

        I had to walk away because I started laughing… the first thought that came to mind was: “The Unblown!” A lieutenant then pulled into the lot and told me that a detective was looking for the other guy, the one with the fireworks, the one who was actually firing them off. When I casually mentioned that it was a hot, dry summer night, and that the idiot was shooting fireworks at one of our buildings, one of the cops tells the guy I nabbed, “You’re very lucky you’re not facing arson charges.” At this point, the guy turns semi-boneless, like an Easter ham, and starts crying.

        I told the lieutenant that my organization likes to keep a low profile, and that we are reluctant to press charges unless it’s a serious offense (something that I’ve never had to deal with). By this time, the dude is in complete meltdown mode, so we decide to let him off with a warning. I actually told him, “Don’t ever let me see your face on this property again, and get the word out that this isn’t a good place to be after dark.”

        I would have invited him to a Monday night game, but he looked to be more of the ‘Magic the Gathering’ demographic.

      Voxel Legoday drives timidly into the bar. The Nightbus Pounding has given him new insight into the nature of sexuality(I have added the 3-point merit: Non-hetronormative). He spends 150 gp on Bloody Marys in the hopes of gathering rumours about the Appartments of Chaos.

      Check roll: 17+3(Cha bonus) vs DC 10: succes! I have uncovered 3 rumours!

      5. There are over 67 genders in the appartments of chaos.
      14. The mad rune-wizard of the Appartments of Chaos, Johnneleth Tarnowsika, identifies as Adamasgender, Alexigender and Mystigender and was the first to invent Tranny concubines.
      18. Johnneleth is triggered by a mysterious tome known as the Kingdoms of the Petal Chair. No one knows why.

      Voxel nodds sagely as he sipps from his 29th bloody mary. “Much thanks insect! Now make yourself scarce before I dine on your butt.” He honks threateningly.

    After several hours of running from various humanoids in the overcrowded monster ghetto, Willet, delirious from hunger, thirst, and big time disinterest in his companies wares, shows up at the tavern and orders up a burger, fries, and the most expensive ale in the house (with no concern for his empty pockets). When a serving wench passes, he inquires “do you have frequent-bather rates on the use of a bathtub here? I stay clean for all of 5 minutes.”

At one point he’s in a photo booth in the Owlbear cave, and the Owlbear appears behind him in the booth at one point flashing a peace sign to the camera. Some more in and out cave chasing, and at one point Willet is chasing THEM waving his new 5 page, $29.99 adventure module “Giant rats in the Tavern Cellar” wildly with dollar signs in his eyes.

Having been raised on a steady diet of Fighting Fantasy I can’t rule out the possibility that this tavern is somehow smack in the middle of a giant cave complex filled with monsters, so I don’t make a move. I sense there is a white male terrorist lone wolf lurking around, waiting to rip my throat out. I have absolutely no evidence of that, but who needs evidence?

He is barely aware of it, being so excited as so far today he has sold more product than he has in his entire writing career. Things are looking up! He looks around at his new mates/handlers (especially his best customer Nightbus), and inquired “does anybody have some crash space I could use tonight? I have asked “Small Beer” the innkeeper to watch out for my disability check, but until it comes I’m a little strapped for cash (despite having made $180 in sales today). Oh, and could I have some shower privileges? I’ve been carrying a load in my Huggies since the Gnoll cave complex.”

    Anyway, as he shortcuts through the dark alley behind the Tavern, Fruity Frank stumbles onto Durr-Al-Lexed Lexi, the tavern’s fry cook, a scrawny beardless dwarf, whose radical incompetence outweighs any attempt at racial solidarity and who consequently just got fired for the umpteenth time. The pathetic being offers Frank a one-on-one coaching session with a happy ending. Frank doesn’t see why anyone would inflict that on oneself, but out of compassion he lets Lexi suck his banana dick instead [character creation through play : Frank is neutral good : I hate him already].

    Unfortunately the banana is too ripe and the result, mushily predictable. I guess we’ll have to wait and see what grows next. Anyway tears of gratitude start rolling on Lexi’s grease-burned cheeks and Frank asks him where the fuck the Forge is, and also where one may find the local friendly priest for advice (I have a good feeling about this).

      Since he’s not being targeted by any of the townies, Adams will fish a spell scroll out of his pouch and attempt to cast Wall of Tats to cut the bulk of the townies off from the melee.

      Let’s see… Wall of Tats is a 4th Level Scottomancer spell, so Adams has a 20% chance of failure. I rolled a 37, so the spell should take effect. Any opponents trying to push through the Wall of Tats has an 8% chance of contracting hepatitis.

      Rolled a 9, but since Voxel Legoday’s Crybully specialisation makes him both victim and opressor, he gets a +4 on saving throws vs bullying provided he can appeal to White Knights in the audience. Stirred on by fruity frank’s speech, Voxel Legoday’s cries of harassment allow him to summon 2d4 (5) 0th level fighters (7 str, 8 con, 5 cha) to come to his aid. However, he still fails the save, so Voxel Legoday spends the next 3 rounds cutting himself with his trusty katana+2 that is both Triggering and Privelegechecking provided it is wielded within 500 ft. of a liberal arts college.

        According to Matt Finch in his Mold School Primer, which dogmatically Erases the experience of those of us who were actually playing in those days, it is totally right to use metaknowledge your character would not know, because true Role Playing is all about the player and not the Role being played.

        So if my memory of KotB serves, there is indeed an outpost of the Sub-University of Montevideo here, run by a bitter tobacco salesman who spends all his time sticking pins in kewpie dolls of his students in runic patterns and chanting at the String-n-cup Repairer’s Guild..

        It will have to be the DM’s Ruling if it qualifies as Liberal Arts or not. And even then, since you are cutting yourself, does that mean you Trigger and Privelege check yourself? Hopefully you fall within my Safe Space so it won’t matter (but I am not burning another Fate Point to make it happen, if required).

    Willet finishes up his dinner, and is surprised when a bill lands in front of him. It’s for his and the rest of the parties meals and drinks. He looks around and suddenly realizes they are all gone. As it dawns on him that he has been reverse dine-n-dashed, he slowly lowers his head and quietly weeps. Then he remembers Nightbus’ payment for the shower curtain, a nice fat check. But when handed over to the innkeeper, it bounces so hard it breaks several bottles of booze and knocks out the serving wench. The innkeeper hands him an apron and a broom. “You’ll be working for me till you exit this world.” Defeated, our hero starts sweeping. he’s not very good at it.

    A half-soused villager named Red is sitting by the roaring fire and relating a popular local tale of the night Valkyria Odusdoter, now known as the Bloody Mage, once revealed herself:

    “She acquired many enemies in her career and one came hunting her. A demon by the name of Greelaxus discovered her quietly drinking in the tavern. Recognizing the threat, she immediately threw off her disguise and strode into the street to battle this foe. Drawing Bloodsinger, it immediately began singing Viking war chants, causing all in the vicinity to quail in fear. The demon himself took pause. The battle raged and it was apparent that the demon was going to lose. She had loosed her sword and was casting a spell when the demon gated out. Bloodsinger followed him!

    The mage quietly returned to her drink. After the initial shock, folks wanted to talk to her, congratulate her and pound her on the back. She shook her head and cautioned them to move away, that it wasn’t over. A short time later, Bloodsinger appeared in front of her, dripping green ichor. She stood, cleaned off the blade, sheathed it and quietly said, ‘Now it is over’ and strode from the establishment.”

        “Think now,” it cackles, “we know you are a very stupid guy, too stupid to rate on my intelligence scale even among vermin at the American end, but try to realise through the fog of irony that confuses you that you have stolen my command to you and are feebly trying to present it as your own idea because you can’t think of anything original.

      Adams casts Protection from Dunning-Kruger 10′ Radius. That should hedge out the Prince of Not-so-Brightness.

      • September 4, 2016 8:46 am

        The Kentrechaun begins rating your intelligence: “Contempt is a natural reaction to the majority of what the OSR puts out, unless I suppose you are a dim & jolly infant or a preening star in a world of your own invention.
        Giving expression to contempt is another matter but I have forgotten what the *purpose* of that exercise is. Hardly to improve the quality of the output. Who can remind me of the purpose?”

        You are succesfully protected from Dunning-Kruger and thus you cannot be rated, as is Spanky since she is within the radius of your spell. Voxel Legoday is still medium-sized but identifies as Colossal (Nightbus), which poses a conundrum that will require some pretty hardcore DM arbitration. Vampire Nightbus is too large and thus outside the radius of the protection spell.


        After 2 rounds you manage to dig out a bottle of pesticide-laced rubbing alcohol but to your great perturbation, it appears you have accidentally dug out a bottle of premium Black Bush, causing the Kentrechaun to begin Podcasting immediately. You will have to divise an alternate stratagem!

    While Terrance was at the hospital, Jesuits launched a nukkake bomb (a nuclear bomb with Jesuit AIDS and semen in it) that hit Ontario, Canada (where Gail’s men and Terrance Jenkins were) and killed millions of Canadians, impregnating every woman in Canada (according to Canada’s FOX News).

    Doesn’t sound OT to me : Semen Explosion in a Druid cantrip in my campaign – but whatever floats yous bus.

    Fruity Frank teases the Kentrechaun with a signed copy of Ma’ Barker’s “The Tekumel Diet” which advocates putting one and only one thing into your mouth (can you guess what it is?) and tries to grab the Bag from his tiny deformed hands (and surprisingly strong wrists).

    • September 6, 2016 8:09 am

      With the status of Vampire Nightbus’s character still in limbo and the Kentrechaun still reeling from the damage to his blog, you succesfully distract the Kentrechaun with your copy of “Pounded in the Sia-néggu by my own Sia-néggu.”

      D20+5 vs DC 10: 17 a roaring success. You wrest the Bag of Morons from the Kentrechaun’s deformed fish-hands. The Kentrechaun takes a swig of his bottle of Premium Black Bush, empties the rest over himself, lights a torch and prepares to podcast about Scott, and no one wants to be near that when it goes down!

      A cantrip? I’d have it (heh) pegged (heh) as at least a 7th level spell, based on the old Tiltobate spell from the first “Jizzardry” computer game. Given that M-U spells were capped at 7th level, I’d argue that Nukkake would be 9th level.

        My bad, Mixed Bodily Fluids Explosion is 7th level indeed : I have a bad memory and the pages of my books somehow got stuck together a long time ago. It’s Semen Projection that is a cantrip, which is understandable given its versatility and outright necessity for all mundane dungeoneering chores : shining leather armors, transcribing new spells, sticking doors shut, smoothing iron rations etc. Druids spend their first year in the woods practicing just this one : it’s like Dragonsfoot, only with fresh air.

    I like a lot of the wacky ideas, but it’s not only unplayable but unreadable in places. And seems to take place in the same world as Phantom Tollbooth or something. Time is fluid as fuck. Why don’t people get the fuck out of the valley when they are up to their knees in water crawling with deadly beasts and monsters? Why are they starving? I think the middle part with the drained lake bed is probably the coolest. That, and the crawling giant, has a lot of atmosphere to it. But yeah on a whole the thing needs big time rewrite. It seems like the author wrote down some fairly adult ideas, then had their 6 year old son build a game around it. And illustrate it.

    I recently read a bit of Anomalous, and am having a hard time getting past all the setting material. It’s more than half that shit. I don’t want to run this dudes game world. Plus maybe a bit too heavy on the Sky Fi. There’s a picture of satellites in orbit. Maybe I could use it for a Gamma World game? Also, I now see where Jamal got his “aliens in Dwimmermount” crap.

      The ‘HA, there’s nothing you can do to help them’ vibe is pretty off-putting, as it takes away player agency. Also, most of the predators in the river are seafood… those meter-wide crabs would make a fine meal, as would those giant pike. There’s also this weird assumption that the player characters’ magic won’t work as it’s supposed to- in a world where ‘create food and drink’ spells are available, a famine could be mitigated somewhat. I sense this ‘frustrated fantasy novel author’ thing going on- ‘She’s a fourth level thief who can sense discord and has an insatiable appetite for crumpets. Her ambition is to steal the great cog from the magical automaton in the abandoned alchemist’s lab.’ She has 18 h.p.- two arrow hits from the fighter’s longbow and a magic missile spell cast at 4th level by the MU… she’s dead in one round, hoss! What a waste of backstory.

      As far as ASE1 goes, it would be great for a sideline campaign when everybody’s tired of the main event. I kinda like the ‘Thundarr’ vibe with the Gene Wolfe style AI ‘gods’, and the allusions to pop culture crap like ‘Bat Boy’. The ‘Dungeon of Signs’ blog has some nice additions to the setting. It’s one of the more interesting OSR offerings, and it sure as hell doesn’t take itself too seriously.

Die knowing that your death is celebrated with mocking laughter that THEY shall come for your whiny brethren and make of them the Blood Eagle and none will stand in THEIR way.

      Also DCO is in serious need of an editor but the imagery within the dam/the dam itself and the DCO itself are atmospheric. I’m guessing the game assumes spellcasters are fairly rare in the game, hence the lack of a create food/water solution (although you can just catch fucking fish or wait for the flood to stop after a day or two, you can live that long without food without resorting to cannibalism).

      The fucking map needed scale badly, I guess one could say that DCO is a dangerous step away from the return to playability and into the realm of the avant-garde art project that should be loathed and feared but it is but a tiny step and it is brimming with atmosphere, albeit it incoherently at times.

      Any thoughts on Yoon-suin/Red-Tide from you lovely ladies?

      • September 16, 2016 4:43 pm

        I like Red Tide well enough, though I’ve never gotten around to running it. It’s a fantasy world that’s been devastated by a Stephen King-ish “Red Tide” of mist that brings madness and death (yes, it’s vague) and survivors from several different nations (typical fantasy fare; pseudo-Viking Scandinavia, pseudo-Feudal Japan, etc.) huddle together in the last landmass that’s free from the mysterious hecatomb, but have to fight the natives — a mishmash of D&D humanoids like orcs, goblins and trolls, collectively callec the Shou — for “living space” as the Tide encroaches.

        Some great ideas (the dwarves’ origin/mythos is awesome), a LL/BX compatible monk class, and a fine fantasy sandbox with horror/terror overtones (and not by way of Raggi grand guignol either). A supplement called An Echo, Resounding, introduces an abstract but expedient domain management system, explicily for use with the setting but compatible with any TSR/OSR D&D I know of (and easier to manage all around than BECMI/RC or ACKS).

Sounded kind of cool, so wen to look at the blog, only to find it’s a bunch of scattered posts from years ago (when the blogs still mattered). Worse, his latest crap seems to be running endless sessions in Dwimmermount. That didn’t give me much hope he would do anything good.

    It’s best to believe in gods in RPGs because of a cross between Pascal’s Wager and the Godbound RPG. Without any gods in your campaign world, you couldn’t have Godwalkers, towering techno-magical-cybernetic robots that shoot lightning bolts from their hands and can only be driven around by demi-gods. Therefore, per Pascal’s Wager, a rational person should live as though gods in RPGs exist and seek to believe in them In order to receive such infinite gains. Obviously any rational person would recognize the sheer awesomeness of such a PC.

        – Fruity Frank escapes from the loathsome podcast of the Kentrechaun and sets course for the appartments of Chaos, carrying the Bag of Morons wherein lies the Demiplane of Morons with VNB and Willet trapped inside.
        – Emitting a thick pungent musk of coppery rat-turds, mould and ancient estrogen, Lady Wrinklequim emerges from the Underbrush, clutching a Bible and wearing only a loincloth and carrying 48.000 CP. Something tells us that she is not who she appears to be at first sight.
        – Spanky gets 50 roleplaying xp (THE ONLY XP THAT WE SHALL BE HANDING OUT THANK YOU) a fate point and a jade idol of Pepe the Frog worth 30 gp for countering the Kentrechaun.
        – Adam gets no xp for effective play but it still protecting the party from Dunning-Kroeger. ROLEPLAYING NOT ROLLPLAYING GENTLEMEN AND YOUR ATTACKS ON KENT ARE RACIST TOWARDS IRISHMEN.
        – Zarkon is still at the Keep but narrative expediency whisks him out of the clutches of the siphilitic tavern-dwellers and deposits him next to Adams, naked as the day he was born.
        – Voxel Legoday is still triggered but has escaped intelligence rating by the Kentrechaun thus far.
        – Kasimia has been kidnapped and triggered by the evil shitlord Rastapopoulos and will have to concoct a daring escape plan with the former lord of the appartments of Chaos, Johnneleth Tarnowsika.
        – Perdustin was last on initiative and his half-flumph has yet to act. Keep it together man.

        The Kentrechaun is reeling and crying from the damage inflicted on his blog and the loss of its Bag of Morons. He attempts to muster the energy to podcast but promptly deletes it and himself, you are all victorious and gain 48 roleplaying xp for staying in character.

        As you continue on towards the appartments of chaos, you encounter a hideous, whale-like creature covered in repulsively thick blue hair. No one is suprised by its appearance.

        Encounter reaction: 2d6 – 4 : 2.

        It is triggered! It bellows as it waddles towards you, the gender disparity and lack of diversity in your party sending it into a murderous apoplectic fit. None of you have weapons that can harm Tumblerettes and it seems too late to make a donation on its Patreon. What will you do?!?

        9 – 9 – 3 – 5 – 4 – 10 – 8. Five successes. By RAW that should be more than enough for Kasimia to return to her grandparents’ spare bedroom, take comfort in the stench of stale patchouli and trenchcoat dust, consult the Prophet with a spot of bibliomancy (a quick riff through the nearest Black Library publication) and prepare herself for a return to adventure.

    A vial of Holy Water and a ceramic urn carrying the ashes of Phyllis Schlafly crash into one another and shatter within the Bag of Morons, drenching poor Vampire Night Bus in the splash radius. VNB burns away and his scrotum shrivels up into a tiny butterfly which then morphs into a bearded clam that proceeds to dry up and grow into Lady Wrinklequim. The Lady of the Tampon Tunnels rips out of the Bag of Morons and presents herself to the party, offering her services as a Menstrual Mage in exchange for a position (missionary only mind you!) among their ranks. At her side is her milquetoast manservant, a Baltimorian Ex-Pat she found in Toronto at the center of a miscast Silence 48,000 GP Radius spell.

      Lady Wrinklequim appers alongside her Baltimorian companion, the Moonglum to her Elric if you will. The Bag of Morons is still intact, and this is a fortuitous thing, for Adams has just succeeded at a secret Knowledge: Dunning-Kroeger check, making him realize that if the bag of Morons were ever to be destroyed, it would free all Morons that are imprisoned therein!!!

      Adams, your attempt to convince the she-walrus (it shapeshifts between whale and walrus each round) that she should enter the Bag of Morons is perceived as ‘man-splaining’ instantly provoking its tiny woman-brain into paroxysms of petulant, impotent rage. It is so triggered that 1d6 (3) White Knights appear in bursts of sweat-scented pink haze from the realms of Tumblr, ready to defend M’lay’s honour to the death if need be.

      Kasimia receives a stern look from the Storyteller for splintering the narrative and thereby erasing the lived experiences of others but this quickly turns into admiration and approval, because it was all in character, and that is what really counts.

We are proud of our gay butts huddled together for defence and to inspire Prince of Nothing to write his D&D stuff.

      I think Chris Roberts aka YDIS is not one of us. I saw him in a restaurant talking to an attractive woman who was laughing at his jokes. He reached out and cupped her sharp chin in his hand and with his other hand picked up a pork chop and smeared it over her right breast exposing that nipple with grease from the chop and then kissed her nipple.

      But that is still ambiguous. However, I then heard him say,

      ‘Baby, I am so tired of the HOMO MONSTER website I created. The only people who post now have escaped from a leather satchel for imbeciles that kent wielded in hapless effort at purification. These guys are as in love with their own slimy buttocks as Humbert Humbert was in Lolita’s pussy.’

        It was absolutely a sign of utmost respect for the Swine, to have a segment of one’s carcass ritually rubbed upon the right nipple of a nubile human female. Indeed this is how our ancestors celebrated the bounty of the Earth and its life-giving fecundity before emasculating Christianity.

        Now, Von, he’s never been successful at anything. He’s even failed at being Kent, and when he brings the ‘nym back out of retirement, he’ll have failed at not being Kent.

        The sad, simple fact is that Paul has never been successful in any endeavor. He’s a failure elemental. He even failed to create a character for this play-by-post, which gives away the game… the module we’re using is actually “Ass-Eaters of Pyongyang” and he’s resuming the role of Kent Jong-Un, which he’ll inevitably fuck up.

        Regarding Scott, I don’t know why poor Scott has become the object of Paul’s obsession. I think Scott was nice to him once, like a boy who sits next to a lonely fat girl in the school cafeteria, and now that lonely fat girl is stalking him and fixing to boil his pets… a nasty task that will thankfully end in, you got it, failure.

      Raptor Butt Wranglers are banned from the campaign on account of the disastrous “Creampie in Chongjin” module and the campaignwide implications that followed. I understand Zorbus gets lonely but I just can’t deal with that stuff tbh.

      Secretary is allowed but given the historical connotations I think you should be cautious so you do not end up accidentally propagating white supremacy and patriarchy. We are trying to make this game a welcoming and space for all people of colour and LGBTYMCA as well as women and if that means banning some classes with connections to the darker past of roleplaying games then I am not afraid to put my foot down. It is like my hero, Soros-sama often says: “The road to diversity is built from the bones of the white man” and “progress is best forged from the iron of the refugee in the blood drenched crucible of violent revolution.”

    From Wikipedia:

    “In 2016, Mike Nystul was noted for his notorious inability to payback over $35,000 in three failed KS projects. The money for those three projects mysteriously disappeared leaving many fans with a bad taste in their mouth. As of this time, he is considered the second worst failure when it comes to fulfilling Kickstarter projects with Ken “Whit” Whitman being #1 as far as failing to fulfill those Kickstarter projects. Both of these individuals have stolen well over $120,000 from the gaming community.”

Upon the plinth displaying this beautiful work of art and forbidden love is a silver plague with an inscription described thereon.

        On the mutli-class front, I choose Monk. The variant from Dragon #53 with 8-sided hit dice and Quivering Nukake at 3rd level.

        Anyway, I’m a bit confused by all the action. Particularly Adams attaining Clear and collapsing (“That is supposed to be the most powerful level!” Spanky says to hirself. “Were we LIED to by Saint Hubbard?”). So if I can make out his outline, I lay down a suppressing fire of microaggressions against the feminoggoth and pull him into the safety of Intersectionality before the statue.

        Did Frank lead the rest of the party out of the Bag of Morons? Is the party unsplit again? If so, I pull my shirt over my nose and then pull the finger of the statue, and prepare to jump aside with my new long-honed reflexes.

      The interior art is actually pretty cool, but that cover is about the worst piece of shit ever produced for a heroic fantasy game, rivaled only by Scrappy P’s scribbled crud.

The copies will sit and collect dust on some neck beard’s bookshelf because he can’t say no to anything vaguely D&D related and he will eventually confess he hasn’t played a game with real people since 1983.

        The weird thing is Bawl Parry’s characterization of Foster as an overly religious person. Is there any evidence of religiosity on his part, or is this some sort of Barrian fever dream?

        Bawl’s sudden evangelism for atheism is another weird new wrinkle. I always took him for an apostate Paisleyite who left the church because his mom beat him with a large spoon when she found a ‘bodybuilding’ magazine under his mattress. He’s a pretty piss-poor atheist… even when he was trying to bait the DFers in his last thread under the latest sockpuppet, his ‘argument’ against the existence of a deity was a half-assed suggestion to watch *snort* a Youtube video by Richard Dawkins.

        I will be attending an event commemorating the 40th anniversary of the publication of The Selfish Gene in November.

    Heh. Our buddy John C. Wright, who religiously castigates the poor for being so lazy, holds up a tin cup for his blog followers to cover his subsistence:

    “Of old, it was thought that poets were closer than other mortals to the gods, and heard the whispered echo of their revels on Olympos or Fensalir, or their clash of ethereal arms at Phlegra or Vidblain.

    Myself, I think it is because men in my profession approach their beloved patrons in the same suppliant posture as pilgrims to a shrine. Poets know that no man lives without the charity of some superior power, because we have nothing else on which to rest but the good pleasure of our patrons.

    This month, we at the Wright Household does not have enough to cover both groceries and mortgage, and so I thought I would beg my readers for tips.”

    There is probably no better example of imperious emporerer-has-no-clothesism alive than Johnny. It is particularly ammusing that such a great writer (just ask him) makes a first grade mistake in noun and verbs. Third sentence – “we” “does”.

      I always crack up when a right-winger can’t hack the free-market system that he espouses. What makes Wright’s particular bleg even funnier is this old post of his:

      Best part:

      Since sex is ordered toward reproduction, you have to love the woman first, and want her to be the mother of your children, and want it more than you want life itself. Since sex is spiritual, you have to protect your children and your wife and make them safe. Your wife cannot be made safe if you are allowed to abandon her. Hence, since sex is ordered toward reproduction, you must swear, swear by Holy God and your hope of heaven, never to leave her, but to love and cherish her, in sickness and health, for better or worse, until nothing less than horrid death itself you do part.

      For her part, she must vow to love and honor and obey.

      And if you do not understand about that obey part, you do not understand women. She wants a leader, an alpha male, a chief, a Christ, and you must be willing to die for her as Christ was willing to die for you, or she will not feel secure in your love. If she does not swear to obey, you are not a couple, not a dyad, not a unit, but are still two sovereigns dealing with each other at arm’s length, not intimate, and she cannot trust you fully, cannot love you fully, not with a divine and self-sacrificing love. And she knows you don’t love her fully, not with a love that is more than madness, more than sense, more than the universe.

      Dude can’t even pay the mortgage, how does that keep his children safe, and how the hell could he claim ‘alpha male’ status? The ‘C’ in his name stands for ‘cuck’.

      I have a friend who has a particular disdain for Wright- she’s going to laugh until she passes out when she reads this.

He thinks that ‘Arse in the Sky’ is somehow a sly, antitheistic burn of T. Foster (how the hell was he, heh heh, pegged as being a devout Christian by Durr Hurr anyway?), but it’s really an admission of his preferred ‘head down, ass up’ sex position as he gets railed from behind by drunken farmboys on holiday away from the bog and jolly Nigerians looking to cob off after a hard day of attempted e-mail scamming.

      Wow, Wundergeek checks out. Even at the end, there is no self-examination along the lines of “Well, maybe I was not right about everything.” Instead, and with totally unrealized irony, she laments that no white knight male rode into her rescue; the silence of her insider allies (whoever the fuck they are) left her ultimately betrayed.

      Hopefully, not having the challenge of launching ever escalating attacks on men for being male might cool off her hatred, and she can function as a mother again.

      It won’t be long (unless it has already happenned) that this is characterized as her having been “silenced” by the tabletop game culture.

    Peterson is a deep thinker, he leans on Dostoevsky, Nietzsche and Jung as much as engineering style stats and his interests are (i) belief systems and unconscious archtypes and stories that are responsible for religion and totalitarianism and (ii) personality. He has about 20 hours of lectures on his youtube channel about each interest, Ive watched them and they are fascinating if you are into that.

    So, I think he is a deeper thinker on ideological bias than anyone he is going to come up against but what does that matter? the LGBT-marxists have completely taken over universities while cowards buried their heads.

    He may be fired although he does have tenure.

It has the bonus fun of forcing you to toss off to Ellie May after a couple or three eps, even though she is a porker by today’s standards (but not yours I imagine). You can get some bonus strokes for thinking about what Elvis did to that lovely, god fearing Southern fried face during the months he was boinking her when she co-starred in one of his dreckish films.

    As most of you know, I have wanted to change my medical specialty from emergency medicine to psychiatry for some time now. you know, sort of have another voice from the Right in a field that has been overrun with liberals and homosexuals (aka Jews). I’ve been studying the online posts (mostly G+ and various message boards) of RPG gamers who identify as having “severe depression”. I was able to create lists of what these poor souls are able to accomplish on a daily basis and what they are incapable of doing because of their affliction.

    Severely Depressed Gamers Can:
    Play video games
    Talk about RPG games online all day
    Watch a lot of Netflix, Hulu and cable television.
    OUTRAGE! and SJW over the improper use of gender pronouns
    Someone is MANSPLAINING!!!!!
    Trump is Hitler!
    Beg for money/GoFundMe
    Buy themselves more video games, new RPG game books, stacks of comic books, pay their monthly Netflix/Hulu/Cable/Internet connection, and what amounts to toys and dolls for children (Baron Von Manchildren Syndrome)

    What the Severely Depressed Gamer Cannot Do:
    Pay their bills
    Fulfill their Kickstarter
    Work at a job of any kind

    I am still sorting through the data, but I think I might have a journal paper here or at the least a YDIS guest post.

There is only so much mileage you can get out of “Mechanically sound yet uninspiring with a few nuggets of inspiration scattered here and there.” Thanks to YDIS my supply of Pundit quotes to tagline the review is inexhaustible though.

      I’ll buy “Podesta has dirty laundry and there is something weird going on” but need a bit of proof for “Podesta is a child-molesting sex-occultist and acts as one of the pawns of the Archenemy in this world of the mundane and also unclean spirits are a thing we believe in now.”

      The covereage of this election has been a fucking mess from all fucking sides and consequently I have no idea. The current current consensus in the dutch press (to be seperated from the previous consensus when trump was “done” after he said something about ladies 11 years ago) is a close call but narrow victory for Hillary.

    I thought I was indifferent to American politics, but the pain and tantrums of all those pensée unique brats proved extremely enjoyable even an ocean away. So before Kek the 1st shed his green skin and gets back to his long-held liberal and hollywood-friendly views (long before January, I guess), why don’t we just just unite and enjoy those unique days, which will always be remember as the time when froggish memes ruled the world.

      All of you reactionary right guys – at home or abroad – miss a core truth in your exultation over the smoke screen of SJW tears. An amoral thug has risen to power at the helm of the most powerful nation on earth. Yeah, you hate the lefties, but that is no excuse for enabling and/or cheering for the rise of Trump, one of the most deceitful souls the good ol’ USofA has ever shat out.

        That is the magic of democracy : not being US citizens means we don’t feel any responsibility for what is happening over there and thus are able to enjoy it for what it still is : just a show. I’ll admit that when a far-right extremist party will be about to seize power in France there will be much more difficult moral issues for me, but it won’t happen before a long, long time (six months).

        And for the record, only in Europe could I be labeled reactionary. In The US old farts like like me would be just right of Bernie Sanders (have you seen the babes that followed him around like he was Mr Mojo Risin? I want some of that, not Zak’s skanks!)

    • November 13, 2016 5:59 am

      I would be remiss if I did not point out that Hilary ain’t exactly a bastion of integrity, morality and wholesomeness either, I recommend the publications of Mr. Assange for an in depth examination, not to mention we all get to breathe easier because Trump is less openly anti-Russia and Europe happens to live next to it. That being said, I think most right-wing populist guys are not so much Pro-Trump as just anti-status quo/PC-gobbledygook and fed up with the dominant narrative and the sanctimonious and shamelessly deceitful press. It’s really only just beginning.

      That being said, yes, the tears are delicious and I have seldom laughed this often and this sneeringly as I have in the last couple of days. I don’t blame you for being worried though, a Trump presidency means economic uncertainty and probably riots/low level civil war.

        Neither have I, neither have I. Hey, the Rust Belt retards who elected Trump will suffer mightily, but at least those mud people will get fucked HARD. Meanwhile, we Coastal Elites will just sip our lattes and laugh at the rubes, because at his very heart, all Trump ever really wanted was to make the transformation from Outer-Boroughs creep to Midtown Swell, and that is one victory he will never will, even though he became King of the Kretinous Klowns. He can’t fuck over all the Messicans and Nigras he wants to, but he’ll never make Mike Bloomberg invite him over for lunch.

        As far as a low-level civil war goes, most ‘Murkins are too fucking lazy to get off the couch to blow shit up. Even the truly motivated revolutionaries are too stupid to actually pack supplies when they go up against the Big Battalions:

    I did not vote Trump. I’m no liberal, but just between me and you pricks I’m not really the character I portray here (a 200 lb. country music loving, meth puffing, Jack Daniels ball cap wearing son of a bitch). I believe in universal health care, less ass-woopin’ cops, and apple pie (actually cherry is better). But I could give two shits about bathroom use, what freaks want to marry each other, and how many Mexicans we have (they are here to stay and their children will rule places like California and Arizona in 20 years). But I can sort of understand the frustration that made this happen. For over a year I’ve had hippy geeks on my Facebook telling me I may not think I’m a racist but I actually am even though just years ago you actually had to hurt somebody or wish them harm to be a racist. That my white privilege has served me well (I don’t see it). I witnessed directionless Occupy movements that were more about hating anybody who had money, much less the rich. And for years and years Bush bashing like he was the worst thing that could happen. He was an embarrassing dipshit, but he didn’t change my life. But I still see “miss me yet?” memes like he was the anti-christ.

    The people who made this assclown Prez aren’t the people who voted for him. It was the people who pushed the boundaries in the wrong ways. Who told people who were actually good that they were bad. I don’t like the situation, but like some have said I am going to take a little pleasure in watching them weep. When I’m not weeping myself.

    While we’re waiting for me to get myself together after much too much fun over the weekend, let’s play a game.

    Fundamentally, it is a role-playing game, but one that is personal to each of us. It begins with a choice, where both options are a flight of imagination, quite impossible, but both are full of possibilities.

    Let us say that I’m able to alter your reality in one of two ways.

    In the first option, you would be able to return to your 12-year-old self, at the time, the place, the world you knew back then, without any changes save one: you will retain all the knowledge and experience you have right now. Like you never could the first time around, you could play the system; assuming you could find a way to lay bets, and do so with the memory you have right now (no making lists of winners in advance, I’m going to send you off in the next three minutes), you can make a ton of money, you can decide to change things and do things differently than you did the first time.

    The upside is that, of course, everything will be familiar. For some, perhaps their family life at 12 isn’t something they’d want to return to, but for many it would be an opportunity to see relatives and friends again, to return to the comfort of a mother and father who took care of you, to see a world that is now long past or forgotten ~ particularly for those of us for whom 12 was a long, long time ago.

    There are a couple of downsides. Forget new music, movies or television for awhile; and if you’re going far enough back, forget the internet and easy access to media. To you, everything will be old. There won’t be anything new for a long time, unless you invent it . . . not until you catch up to today.

    As well, it will be hard to get the right timing on meeting those friends you knew after 12; hard to make your marriage happen again, if you’re happily married right now . . . and forget your children. Even if you knew the day your son or daughter was conceived, even if you actually succeeded in conceiving a child on that day, it wouldn’t be the son or daughter you know now. It would be someone similar, someone that looked much like the child you had, that behaved much like the child you had, but the child you have right now would be lost forever. There’s nothing you could do to change that.

    In the second option, I make you 12 right now. It’s today and you’re still the same person you were, but you’re in a 12-year-old body. Perhaps you’ll be able to identify a surrogate mother or father in the next few minutes, explaining the situation for them, or perhaps you’d like to take your chances on your own. You won’t be able to play the system like in the first option, because the future will still be unknown ~ but at least you’ll have the potential to begin again and do it better than you did the first time around, plus you’ll have all these extra years of life. That is, assuming you’re not hit by a bus.

    Which would you pick? And once you picked an option, what would you do with it? Be brave, imagine this is a role-playing game and you’ve just been transformed or reanimated, whatever you want to call it, and the DM is asking, “What do you want to do?”

    Tell me in the comments.

    Though Satine did S&M bondage stuff, nothing really got hurt but whatever pride she had left on attaining adulthood. But from what I saw a few years ago Sasha did some extreme stuff that probably prolapsed certain organs. Both of these classy young ladies at the time and a short period after such work acted proud of it, but as of a couple years ago Satine was all “if I have children what will they think?” and Sasha, who during her attempts to “mainstream” stated she was proud of that work for years, as of about a year ago expressed big regrets in an article. Proud because that big Hollywood movie career didn’t work out.

    While being scum they never think that they might have children one day who will be suicidal over the bullying over mom’s “special” scenes.

    I should be running D&D right now; instead, I’m resting and writing this post. I’m just too tired, too sore, too unable to think properly enough to run a game. Reality. At least I can say I’m employed, for three months now . . . I’ve been working as a prep cook in a gluten-free rib house of some quality. I can say the work is hard or I can say simply that I’ve lost three inches around my waist and about 25 pounds in less than 90 days.


    I spent yesterday in thought and much of today as well. While watching burgers sizzle and fries bubble, while watching calamari drain and ground duck meat thaw, there’s not much else to do than think. The subject has been, what do I do next? Specifically, now that I’m admitting that my physical well-being demands rest on a Saturday; I’m working Friday night and Sunday is a complete loss as well. My players can’t run during the week so once again, I’m stuck without a game.

    Damn, Lexi is running some kind of Hunger Games experiment with his devoted.

    “I do hope that I can make myself clear about something. I say this in the hopes of establishing total clarity.

    Would-be players are COMPETING for a place in the campaign. I don’t want to run up to 11 players simultaneously forever.

    The competition in this case is based on two things:

    A) Can you follow instructions EXACTLY.

    B) How consistently are you reading the blog so that you can respond to information that is needed and to instructions.


    While I can read your intentions perfectly, and they are Short and Precise, do you understand that they were NOT put in the format I requested?

    There is a famous story of Van Halen’s contract with venues, asking that all brown M&Ms be removed from candy dishes that were placed in their rooms backstage. Many people mocked this request, many people called the band a bunch of prissy assholes who obviously had delusions of godhood and thus felt they were entitled to ask for ridiculously needy things just because they could.

    Fact is, the candy dish was a TAG. It meant that the band’s manager could walk into the band’s room back stage and see in ONE SECOND that the venue had READ the contract and had taken the time to FOLLOW the contract. If there were brown M&Ms in the candy dish, it showed immediately that the venue plainly did not respect the contract and that there were bound to be many other things the venue DID NOT DO.

    That’s what this is. If I see people not following instructions, as written and given, what I think is, “Uh oh. Trouble.” There are going to be vast numbers of details and issues of communication that arise between me and the players ~ those players who resist following the simplest, clearest instructions are going to be kicked to the curb because I am not interested in this getting harder just because a person thinks, “I know, I will do it MY way.” ”

    And here I always thought the Van Halen guys didn’t want brown M&M’s because they reminded them of those little straggling pieces of shit that just won’t flush.

    OK so this chick Foz Meadows wrote a melodramatic article on Black Gate about politics in Fantasy. Some interesting points, but it was marred by the stereotypical “if you disagree with my narrative then you are blinded by white male privilege”. But the article caught fire in the intertubes because it conflated the Sad ans Rabid Puppies as being under the leadership of neo-nazi Vox Day. He cried on his blog and begged Black Gate’s editor O’Neill to change it because he could get in trouble with the Italian police, or something. It is easy to tell the Sads from the Rabids, and Voxy leading the Rabids is the major one, so Meadows is just lazy here.

    Anyway, the article got moved to Amazing Stories and Vox’s moron followers and their ideologic equal-but-opposites at File 770 all wet their knives in an orgy of virtue signalling. Lots of electronic ink spilled. There is a link to the moved article at Black Gate still, and some pingbacks in the comments. I checked out one, from a blog called Men of the West, which turns out to be a standard neo-nazi we-must-win-the-cultural-war-at-all-costs-failure-is-not-an-option-and-also-we-are-Christians site.

    And in the comments is one of our favorite Colostomy House gamer brownshirts Circumsova.

    There are links in there if you want to follow the fireworks, or go to Black Gate or File 770 or Vox Gay’s website. I linked this one so it is documented that that Circumsova faggot is active on openly racist sites.

    I really wish we could get a solid psychological eval of this sad, weird prick. So many times tried to be a serious part of the online game scene, ultimately rejected in so many places because he cannot control his mental issues and ends up trying to bully dipshits in forums with a variety of socks. Comes here trying the same seriousness, but even here devolves into his mania.

    Here’s to you, Kunto. You’ve given more disturbing joy here than even our sacred Bloo. I’d like to say I wish you the best, but really, we know there is only one end for you. A sad lonely death. Your head in the oven, or hanging from an electrical chord in your kitchen. Perhaps even an elegant way, like bleeding out slowly in the tub. But we all know it will end badly. Just…when?

As expected, the storygamers’ statues were full of air, but it was not the stench of hipster suffisance that knocked out our PC: Spanky Monky’s fingerpulling triggered a higher-level sleep spell, while obviously altering the equilibrium of the spheres. M’lord Rastapopoulos the blond half-troll is now the only head of the Apartments ; his Uruguayan lieutenant and his Kanuck Kunts of Kaos took over the Keep, and refurbished the masonic temple with giant statues of their frog-like god from planet Maralgol. Prince is lost at sea, and all Vampire Nightbuses have been commandeered to deport Mexicans and food critics out of the Grand Duchy. Frank feels kinda bad for helping cause so much weeping and gnashing of teeth, but he must admit that the sudden availability of golden showers in every inn is definitely an improvement.

      Form the Amazon blurb (written by Jeff of course):
      “Author Jeffro Johnson, an expert role-playing gamer, accomplished Dungeon Master and three-time Hugo Award Finalist, critically reviews all 43 works and authors listed by Gygax in the famous appendix. In doing so, he draws a series of intelligent conclusions about the literary gap between past and present that are surprisingly relevant to current events, not only in the fantastic world of role-playing, but the real world in which the players live. ”

      Last time I “drew an intelligent conclusion” was in a middle school history essay.

      And being a Hugo finalist is certainly an achievement, only slightly tainted by the fact that his category was eventually won by industry veteran “No Award”.

        Introduction by John the ‘C’ stands for ‘cuck’ Wright… this is too precious. I hope he made enough from this assignment to buy enough instant ramen to feed his family for a week.

        The funniest thing about Wright is the fact that he was a Randian atheist before he had his ‘Road to Dumbasscus’ moment and became a god-botherer. I predict a similar trajectory for Kent… hir’s a woman-hating (even a pussy-hating) failed authoritarian, one step away from a typical fundamentalist.

      According to Voxy Gay, it is all a media hit to distract people from Pizzagate:

      How will Steve Bannon save l’il Milo? What would Julius Evola do?

        I call your Evola and raise you a Mishima, whose + 1 katana was a far more elegant full stop to a poetic career than Milo’s juvenile ass-pounding fantasies.

        Anyway, I hope he bounces back soon , otherwise our campaign may lose its irresistible whiff of roman à clés.

    So, about those Zak S and Mandy Morbid pornos. Is this some kind of specialty fetish they are catering to: scab covered skanks with scabies? It leaves you wishing Zak would take a cheese grater to her diseased snatch to scrape some of those scabs off. Fucking disgusting.

    That thread is pure comedy gold- we have sockpuppetry, the LotFaP crew all coming on-board to defend Zak, despite the fact that the other people on the thread have actually had interactions with the nutbag, and a Chuck Tingle reference.

      I declare February 24 to be Noisms Retirement From Day. He’s doing an amazing job and people are starting to take notice. A really amazing job, like the job I did keeping 2.5 billion jobs in America, but the press doesn’t report on that. Sad!

        Mr President, I respect your dedication to Noisms’ efforts to Make Flouncing Again, but I must inform you that this is most likely an alt-retirement. As the closest equivalent to Baron Harkonnen in the history of the United States (protip: keep Uday and Qusay away from the Trump Family Atomics), you surely must know that THE SPICE MUST FLOW!!! As soon as Nosims publishes his next release (smart money says it will be “Ass Eaters of Yoon-Suin”, with ZakS receiving credit as ‘ass-eating consultant’), he’ll be back on Big Purple with a Blooeyesque “BUY SOME PRODUCT!”

    I am going to do another podcast which I will upload to youtube through my new blog. I am told that I have done three podcasts so far – I hardly remember doing one. My ambition is to do a podcast that I remember recording. You are my greatest fans even though I despise you.

    In terms of content I am open to suggestions that I will reject utterly.

    I would like to do a podcast about beginning AD&D stuff, refreshing the initial stages of character development while at the same time trying not to drink too much scotch and mock osr favourites by name.

      You know, and they know, and above all I know, that you’ll only get wasted and chat shit for five minutes, then deny any recollection of ever producing the thing in the morning. You might mention D&D at some point.

      I didn’t realise your last thing was a Trump parody though (I’d successfully avoided hearing the man’s voice until recently) and so it’s risen slightly in my estimation, in the same way that a stealthy fart ‘neath the covers makes itself known to me in the seconds before suffocation comes.

      I checked out his webpage, he’s on a 40K tear. At least he’s not chained up in some dingy LA apartment, having his cornhole licked by Vampire LARPers with bad hairdos and delusions of ‘edginess’.

      It’s funny, looking back on this hole (sic… and sick) kerfuffle and noting that cigarette smoking is now less socially acceptable than ass-eating. C’est la vie.

      I -did- speak, you damned malicious fools you.

      I’ve barely smoked in years but I have NEVER eaten an asshole, which I gather makes me old-fashioned by default.

      Zak’s involvement with current Vampire does nothing whatsoever to affect my enjoyment of second edition Vampire, i.e. the one I own and run. I’m interested in the current White Wolf’s direction from a more academic standpoint than you might expect.

      I mean, I have a half-arsed zing about how Zak being involved with Masquerade is the single greatest argument for Requiem’s existence, but my heart wouldn’t really be in it.

        I half expect Zak to show up in the thread, accusing you of being a sex-negative ‘Tipper Gore’ prude.

        Funny how old and tired Zak’s schtick is, he’s shocking to the mothers of 1986, but anyone under the age of thirty would be hard pressed to see him as anything more than an aging edgelord who’s making cultural references they don’t get and trying too hard to make porn (which is as consumerist as processed cheese food product these days) seem transgressive. Even his hairdo looks dated and trite.

    I will never mention anyone here on my podcast because you are all non-entities. There is nothing interesting, or even peculiar, about you once I dismiss your collective nappy-wearers fixation on buttocks, rectums and the smell of your own faeces on your fingers.

    Take Timothy for example. His presence is so inconsequential, the content of his waking life so vapid that one would be forgiven for describing him not so much as a wallflower but a wallweed. My pointing him out will mark an epoch in his uneventful life, his gray heart will be delirious, pulsing to acknowledge my observation but he is incapable of thought and will have nothing to say, poor dullard.

        Tough to say, the past decade evrything has been done to fucking death in all the blogs and pudcasts. I don’t care about a podcast where the author just wants to hear himself babble on.

        Why do you want to do another one? Have something interesting to say? What is it? Have a point, something you think a few people might find amusing or thoughtful.

    OK. The BlOwSR is dead, but the Pulp Revolution is taking its place. Just like I love old D&D but despise the dogmatic one-true-wayism of the blOwSR, I love pulp but crack up at all the fags just now discovering Leigh Brackett and building temples to her in their fervor.

    This is exhibit Q, and one of the stupidest blog posts ever, written by a tool who has no grounding in sf:

    No surprise it is from Colostomy House, where they are dutifully following Vox Gay’s playbook of 1.Lie 2. Make up altrnative facts. 3. Double Down IN ALL CAPS. 4. Lie some more.

    And give no examples of your thesis.

    Jeffblow even shows up to once again declare how THEY don’t want you to know the truth.

    Sorry kids, Hard sf has been around a long time, and it won’t stop existing because you are crying about Causality or other terms that popped up on your Twit feed.

    By the way, the author is also Daddy Warpig from the ‘Shite. Once he licked Tarnowski’e ass clean, now he is trying to get bukkakeed by Vox’s junior brownshirts.

    • February 28, 2017 7:47 am

      Holy shit, this is spectacularly wrong. Clearly Daddy Warpig has never read proper hard SF in his life.

      But then that is the trademark loquacious idiocy of our age, is it not? From theRPGsite to the White House, the least qualified have the most to say, and pontificate in vibrant, urgent ignorance to the acclaim of an equally ignorant audience.

        For as much shit as everyone gives Dragonsfoot, at least they post lots of gameable content. The Workshop forum has a couple incredibly good and useful threads (the Descent into the Depths completion, a few new monster and spell threads by individual users).

        I’ve never seen a thing approaching that on the ‘shite, except for maybe at the beginning of John Tarnowski’s tenure, but the users who took part in those types of threads left pretty quickly.
