This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

Sorry to hear it, Pseudo.  :(

I enjoyed discussing Eberron with you in the channel back when.  Perhaps you could start your own channel and actively market it?


I think I'm going to go hang around in #rpgchat, since #therpgsite is dead.

For the record, I don't know what the fuck they're talking about with this conspiracy-to-undermine-#rpgnet business. This thread wasn't part of some concerted campaign or whatever the heck - I was genuinely pissed and amazed that I got kicked in the middle of what seemed like a perfectly legit conversation about Iron Heroes, Unearthed Arcana and D&D 3.x for "spamming". Kyle and I don't get together in #troublemakers to exchange progress reports about how much e-suffering we've managed to cause this week.

Similarly with this "edge of a ban" business - I hadn't been to #rpgnet in a month or two prior to my last few visits. That's totally out of the fucking blue. Nor can I think of anything else disruptive I've done. I certainly type a lot, I'll admit, but IRC chats aren't like conversations - you don't have to speak over anyone, or worry about "interrupting" them. I do it to start up conversation, and I respond to others when they ask questions and make comments. The ban itself I don't care much about, because I figured things would head that way eventually.

As for RPG discussion, #rpgnet doesn't seem to have a lot of it when I'm there that isn't started by me. And if there is any, it's almost always J_Arcane doing his bit to start some up. Attempts to engage other posters have almost always been unsuccessful, as they shift topics to what food they're eating, how sad they are, or... well, what food they're eating or how sad they are.

Jdrakeh> What on earth are you talking about? "Knowingly omitted information"?

Well that's different, you know? ;)
