Chaalt - Copy

That’s “Cha’alt” with an apostrophe in the middle and no space and also don’t capitalize the second “a”

Is Prince of Nothing too busy to help a brother out, or does Venger regard his literary talents as insufficient for so weighty a task? I hope the author Venger-izes his/her/eir name, Lareth Beelzebub  maybe?

If you think you have the chops for this, reply in comments with your name, CV and social security number and I’ll forward an application.

    I need a cartographer!
    I’ve been dabbling in this map stuff for a bit and it’s definitely an exacting gig. I’ve made some progress, but with my current projects mapping just isn’t a priority, though I just purchased Fractal Terrains (shoot me for being a dummy!). Anyway, I’m also in the process of launching Polyhedron Games LLC. The papers are being filed and I’m producing. Trouble is, so far, this has been a one-man show and I’m a one-trick pony. I can write and I’m pretty good with graphics, but I have no artistic talent at all and the learning curve on these cartography programs is quite steep for me. I’m getting some coaching on getting this business going and one of the key points is that I produce. I have planned the publication of The Ertian Chronicles for Spring of 2014, a good bit of it already written. One of the techniques I’ve learned is to publish a large work in smaller parts, in this case, to issue gazetteers. To do that, I need some cartography. I have a hand drawn map of the world. Eventually, that would need to be rendered professionally, but for now, the need is for regional maps.

    So here’s the deal. I’m the manager/member, sole member of this LLC. I declared in the paperwork that I was funding it with $1,000. Now, with the expenses I’ve already incurred, I’m into it for more than that, but when I open the business account (waiting for my federal tax ID), I’ll put $1,000 into it. Now I’d like to recruit at least three other members, one in cartography, one in art and one in layout. Two others might be in editing and one in finance and that would be maxed out. I’m not looking to stuff the membership. Now, I could pay a flat rate for your work (eventually, I’m on a fixed income) but I’m really interested in someone who wants to be part of a new force in the industry. The LLC will not have employees. We will work solely on a member or contractual basis, outsourcing where needed. As a member, you would be recompensed at a certain percentage of the total income of the LLC. You would also have editorial control over the “cartography department.” Becoming a member takes an investment of time and talent, though you’re free to work as you please as long as we can make deadline (that 2014 date is the only deadline I’ve set, so far, and it’s not set in stone) and you’d need to match my $1,000 in financial investment to the company.

    If interested, please email me at gameguru/*at/* I’ll also entertain notions of piece work, but you’ll need to be flexible.

    Sorry to see you were so heartlessly and callously cast aside by Venger, Prince of Nothing (Pr’in’ce o’f No’thi’ng?). Zak has abandoned me as well by rejected my deep love for him. This will be a very rough time for you. I know, probably more than anyone else does. Fair warning: you will probably shit your pants. That’s what happened to me.

    Current estimates are looking to have the Demon City book done in the next 2-3 months.

    I know I promised it for June, but now I’m promising it for January or February. The delay is due to the making Demon City a truly amazing and beautiful product! It’s a kickstarter, of course it is going to be delayed by at least 6 months.

    I can assure you that I have not spent the money on hookers and blow. Part of the delay was due to the Zak issue, but Zak has taught me how to live La Vida Roastie, so we’re cool. He also had a troublesome room-mate, who shall not be named, but who has caused Zak to spend a small fortune on Nature’s Miracle– the stuff you spray to destroy the odor of things like shit.

    Veni’gar, I can fit you into my busy schedule once I have delivered on Demon City. Since I don’t need to put too much effort into my recently funded kickstarter, Barbarians of the Ruined Earth, I’ll be able to work with you too. I told the backers to expect it in April, but I don’t even plan to start on it until April. It’s a kickstarter, of course it is going to be delayed by at least 6 months.

    Veni’gar, do you know any hookers? It would certainly sweeten the deal for me.

I’m really not into poop stuff, especially after recently being in Zak’s apartment. His place smells worse than the streets of San Francisco. it’s a real mood killer. I and the hookers, girls, had to go elsewhere to conduct our business.

    Zpastic patreon running at $83 as credit cards long forgotten expire. Google gives no new results as Zpastic does little but repeatedly google himself as his nose runs and drips from the last of his crank. Dishes, dusty and dirty with eldritch filth, rattle and settle like creaking bones of skeletal tomb guardians. A magical rope of choking and strangulation beckons from a rafter. Too much detail for an encounter in a 10’x10’ room?

      Hey Bro, no rope at all. I use a nice woven belt for my auto-erotic needs or sometimes a pair of Mandy’s panty hose. I usually hang it from the shower head, that way I can clean everything up just by taking a shower. Stokes keeps warning me to move into the closet, even though I tell her that’s how Carradine died. She’s worried that I’ll slip and in my death throes, turn on the hot water. Imagine what kind of corpse my super would find after it spent several days under hot running water.

    Vengar, greetings!

    First, an Introduction: I am a Prince of the OSR. I wrote the best-selling version of D&D ever. I have learned from the Master, Gary Himself. I am currently 68, semi-retired, desperate to supplement my fixed income, riddled with medical problems, but still of sound mind, and other more important body parts 😉 😉

    If you’re interested, I’d be happy to run one or more games in Cha’alt, so long as I can learn to pronounce it correctly. As someone with much editorial experience, I’ll offer a bit of free advice. People hate apostrophes even more than semi-colons. Maybe just call it Chalt, or better yet, something that doesn’t sound like an old man coughing up phlegm. Mrs. Panky hears that sound far too often, according to herself. Fortunately for me, one of my many medical issues is hearing loss.

    An expansion: If all goes well, perhaps you would be interested in investing in the biggest pan-industry project ever, My legendary world of Empyrea. There is no tentacle pr0n in Empyrea, so I am not sure it would interest you much, but, again I will offer good advice. People don’t like perverts. They dislike them even more than apostrophes. Maybe change your ways?

    Hey Venger dude! I’d love to help out, but I’m more DM than player. I love to set up the table, cook up some soup or cheese pie for my players, take some pics of the minis, and rock some dice! Often my campaigns last up to 5 sessions before they implode (I won’t bore you with details)! And the two dudes who comment on my blog (which I’ve hidden again thanks to the relentless goofing by the YDIS assholes) love my online Wastelands of Gash games! So I’ll stick to DM’ing.

    But maybe we could collaborate on a zine? Or a zi’ne if you prefer.I am always brimming with ideas. Like fishermen-jacking, Jager-gulping hobos who stalk LA beachscapes and leave mysterious footprints (and the occasional gooey Jack in the Box shit piles) around the shacks of baffled sailors. Could things like that fit into your ga’ame se’etting? Lemme know, brosif!

      They tried to get me in on this, but I hate Australians even more than Canadians. No way I could listen to that abominable accent for more than a few seconds. Kaskoid can manage it because he’s stoned to the gills and can listen to anything. If you look carefully, you can see his copy of “Metal Machine Music” in the background. You can tell how baked he is by the hat he wears. That hat on his head says half-baked. The civil war era kepi he sometimes wears says completely baked. You don’t want to know what wearing the stetson means. Mrs. Kaskoid makes him do it, so all and sundry are warned on sight.

      Kaskoid still has wood for Gail too, even after all these years. We all do, really. Just listen to the thirst in his voice when he mentions ‘the widow’, the horny old goat.

    I need help. I don’t do well with computers, not since my brain tumor and I really don’t do well with remembering things. I’m 62 and old-fashioned, 100% disabled vet so I’d like to have something I can print out to learn this program.

    I supposedly found a pdf but Windows can’t open the file. I saw the ebook but this place takes half my money and I’ve got to watch the pennies.

    I need the pdf, please…

    I download a pdf that said it was a user’s guide or some such. I never seem to find what I need on these blasted machines. 🙄

    Good ‘ol Bloo. He asked for help with everything. PDF’s, product production (who made the shower curtains for his “ert” setting?), lodging and a meal or two on his cross country con-jaunts, gas money. He was braver than me with his beat up old jalopy truck. He drove thousands of miles on a wing and a prayer. When my Jeep is acting up I’m afraid to drive to 7-11 until I get a full servicing.

    Early on he begged DF’er’s to fund him as a con journalist (these confounded Bic ballpoints! Could somebody airmail me a decent pen? Sigh!). He crashed in vehicle in church parking lots. Did the fat pastors let him crap up the church toilets and sip out of the holy water fonts? So many questions.

    Some years ago somebody chimed in here about one of his con games. That and the comment on his dine and dash were some of the deepest info we got, outside of the precious utterings of the captain himself.

    But we cannot deny he had an adventurous soul. If he was a D&D PC he’d have been asking mind flayers for a place to crash (they’d tap on his skull with their knuckles, look at each other, shrug, and point to the nearest bedroll), and he’d be dine and dashing out of drow taverns. Parking his one horse cart behind St. Cuthbert temples.

    Stevldin Rockcrusher is the proprietor of the Taverna z Chenault along with his brother Davldin. Stevldin keeps order in the place, Davldin creates chaos. Stevldin is blond, Davldin is brown-haired, both with single braids front and back. Stevl has grey eyes, his brother brown. Needless to say, their tavern is constantly in an uproar but it’s a favorite in the heol. Gossip is a favorite pastime; it’s a good place to make dwarven connections and adventuring prospects pop up from time to time. Stevldin carries a war hammer, but Davl’s weapon is a special one of gnomish construction; it’s a mechanized saw! It will cut through trees or men doing 5-20 hp of damage to flesh, cutting clean through on a natural 20!

Someone needs to tell, him that Satine isn’t home right now, she’s on a “world tour” for Destination Fantastic. Zak’s narc-rage is certainly strong enough to drive him to stalking. His dwindling finances –lawyers cost $$$– are enough to drive him into the streets. From paying rent to being rented. such is the cycle of life for a down and out porn start DIY D&Der in the City of Angels.

    Other rumors swirl that Jamal is planning a big comeback with no mention of Dwindlingmont or how much money he spent on himself. Fanboys are jerking it hard for him to make a glorious return and discuss SPI’s Swords & Sorcery even though he’s never owned or played it but he’d love a fan to send him a copy (unpunched only preferably in shrink wrap) so he can achieve gaming orgasm.
    Jamal feels awful he’s relegated to the scum of the gaming pond that is Tekumel. He just wants to discuss games and get free stuff and maybe another $20k.

      Or maybe the Dwimmermount moneys have run out and JaMal just needs to see how well he could run a new confidence game. Kickstarter is out, but there is still Patreon, IndieGoGo and GoFundMe.

    Wundergeek has a new game out. We should have played this one here. It might have lasted longer:

    The Straights Are Not OK

    a comedy LARP about gender essentialism, heterosexism, and the rigidity of gender expectations

    In The Straights Are Not OK, you will play a group of people at a gender reveal party in a national forest. Nominally, party attendees are there to support the expectant parents, but during play you will use the occasion to vent frustrations and resentments with other party guests in the pettiest, most passive-aggressive manner possible. The game will end when the gender reveal goes hilariously wrong and the party-goers burn down the forest.

    Content Warning: This game revolves around themes of gender-essentialism, gender binarism, and heterosexism, although it does so as a way of holding up a critical lens to these common stereotypes. In The Straights Are Not OK, you will all play characters who are cisgender and heterosexual (or claim to be heterosexual), although each character may be played by any person of any gender or sexuality. Players should not feel obligated to align their character choices with their own gender.

    “And he had a type, which I fit to a T: short-haired gender non-conforming feminist gamer AFAB people.

    He knew it was inappropriate to manipulate women he was attracted to into being physically intimate with him, but he had no problem with manipulating women into being emotionally intimate with him in order to satisfy his desire for intimacy.”

    What a monster! I demand he give over his royalties and be paid nothing for his work. It’s the least he can do.

    Seriously, I don’t understand. What is his crime here? Being likeable? Oh it’s “manipulating” to cultivate a friendship? Then she publicly shames him, takes him for his royalties and get to bleat victim again. If you can stomach reading it, it’s almost a parody over there.

        I guess when Wunderfuhrer demanded all royalties the guy decided he could live without the two dollars The Watch was going to make in the future. The Watch is basically another powdered by the cowpocalypse game where the rules are lose and the theme is not mansplaining but manshaming. Another unplayable woke ass game that sits on a couple cucks shelves, never to be played. If anything Wunderreich has drawn the line in the sand over two bucks and no one in their right or left mind is going to work with them again. Wunderheil will cut your fucking throat over a dollar! Hard to make money when you’re a self professed Subway sandwich artist that doesn’t make sandwiches. Hope the guy recovers from Wunder’s imaginary harassment and has learned a lesson.

      Seriously, Wunderfuhrer is fucking nuts. He didn’t manipulate into a physical relationship but manipulated into an emotional one? He’s fucking guilty of wanting to be Wunderhimmler’s friend? Wundersturmfrunt should probably just isolate Wunderpanzer from any human contact because as an short haired, AHAB white whale privileged, non bianary XOR gated, inhuman monster it shouldn’t interact with people because it doesn’t understand how average people work at all.

    So far as I’m aware, change and improvement inevitably leads to the people preventing change and improvement getting pissed off.

    of course, everyone on Story Games has tried to phrase their critiques of each other in such a way as to not be blunt for 2 decades and they’ve never managed to change -anything- about the bad actors in that community.

    No good people have said they stayed off forums bc of me. If there were any, someone somewhere would’ve been able to name even one by now.

    Have I been too harsh? No. But clearly I have not been not harsh enough—I shouldve started suing people years ago. And many people who I gave opportunities and second chances I shouldnt have.

    ..a lot of the less-intelligent OSR people see the situation as me being overly-zealous in defense of basically ok ideas and if only I could manage to dial back the rhetoric and be more like Arnold or Patrick or Gus or whoever then things would’ve been fine.

    And that’s ass-backwards, because those kinds of creators who just sprinkle urbane disapproval over a controversy like a shot of pixie dust and don’t really care if they get heard or whether anything actually changes are part of the norms that keep the industry so fucked-up.

    if a thing’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right

    If you Believe what you’re saying then you have to do what adults do in real life and back-up what you say, not just go ”nuh-uh”.

    If you don’t want to do that but still want to leave comments you should seek therapy and not get back on the Internet until it is finished and you realize that you have done something wrong.

    if your mental illness is so severe you can’t interact in a fair, compassionate, empathetic way with other people no matter how much therapy you get, then it’s best to stay off the internet and do not interact with other people outside a therapeutic or penal environment.

    And I just keep discussing how this Zak vs the world thing is a clear case, and one side has proof, and how the other side immediately says ” Does your son know Zak is a RAPIST” when you ask what to do, or how to go forward. No resolution, just accusation and rumormongering.
    It is so hard to support you when rabid detractors scare these people afraid to publicly apologize into keeping quiet.
    Anyone who does like Zak has to either be small and not have any kind of audience, or remain silent and love you from afar, while denying or remaining aloof on the subject.
    Every platform causes friction, or threatens to kick me, or worse, says some reason so didn’t expect, and I look at when that precedent was set and it was set by ETTIN, or some other historically bad moderator or content creator or public voice.
    It really is like no-one fact-checks or cares about investigating a product, and the ones who do use the investigation and research to lie and push their agenda.
