Blaine Lee Pardo Cancelled by Catalyst Game Labs

Hello Everyone,

This is my first post and I hope I'm not violating any rules at the get go.

Battletech fans have probably heard of Blaine Lee Pardo. He's written several sourcebooks and novels, which are very good.  He's also an all around good dude.

And he managed to upset some woke oxygen leaches enough to get him cancelled by Catalyst Game Labs.  Note that I didn't refer to them as aholes.  Aholes provide a very valuable function and almost 100% of the time, make you feel relieved.

I'm not the type to tell people what to do, what to buy, etc.  Normally; but I do try to nudge folks adopting a puppy dog or puddy tat to work with a shelter or rescue. 
But CGL isn't getting any more of my money in the future and I hope more people will boycott them.

Thanks for reading.

Looks like he's leaning heavily into his politically charged fiction titles, and Catalyst (really their parent company) doesn't want to be associated with the guy authoring those. That's just a consequence of his actions, not censorship. You work for a company, you keep them happy or you are cut lose. He can still write BattleTech if he likes, but it'll be fan fiction.

David Johansen:
Looks like he would do well to produce his own mecha game and setting.  Battletech is really long in the teeth and moribund.

He wrote fiction for games. That's not the same thing as writing games.

Spoken like a true brainwashed woke scold.

What's next from you, "Oh if she just didn't wear that red dress, then she would have never been raped"?

Go follow the rest of the woke lemmings right off of a cliff, HippyDirt.
