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.

Wait.. did I win?

Quote from: Balbinus
A bunch of folk have, as ever on Story-Games, the same understanding of trad rpgs as I have of mecha anime.  The difference being I don't pontificate on what mecha anime is or what it's fans understand and don't.


Well put.  With this understanding, I can now peruse Story-Games from time to time without flying off the handle and wanting to sign up to counter every 5th post (fortunately, the layout is so unreadable there, I always lose the urge).
"The difference between being fascinated with RPGs and being fascinated with the RPG industry is akin to the difference between being fascinated with sex and being fascinated with masturbation. Not that there's anything wrong with jerking off, but don't fool yourself into thinking you're getting laid." —Aos

"Did I win?"

No. Since you completely ignored my incredible Johnny Cash song, you lose.

All of you lose.

Settembrini! Thanks for the blog post! I'm glad to know that "any longer completely down would stand the birds to play for few the plays are one of the gurus are incomplete a inkonsequenter geschaeftemacher".

I think I understand the German section of that sentence better than the rest of it.  And I don't speak a word of German.

I'm just pulling his leg. I babelfished it, and (of course), it didn't work very well.
