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.

How about not avoiding the question? Where?

I don't make a habit of answering questions the asker already knows the answer to, especially when said question is a pathetic attempt to play the "innocent".  

I'm sorry, this conversation is over.  I will now do something I should've done months ago.  

Bye bye, have a nice life.

Oh sure, I know the answer. Nowhere. Yes, I'm just calling you out on your total bullshit hissy fit to underline that point.

You miserable, dishonest little cocksucker.

You can try and play facetious, and misrepresent your own motives in posting to this site, motives which I think are by and large clear to everyone here by now, but you do NOT get the priveledge of making any judgement upon me.

I'm dishonest? Well then answer the question, instead of giving a "oh you know" and then scurying off.  Where?

What motives would that be?  The motive that you've made up in your head? Or my actual motive? Because it is quite apparent to me they are two very different things.  The former you seem unable to provide support for.

It's like watching Xander and Cordelia go at each other.  
And we know how that ended up :)

Arcane: I got your little note about Blakkie.  Now, Blakkie is the master of passive-aggresive bullshit, and baiting with messages that are essentially trying to either snipe at me or at the stated preferences of this site and the majority of its readership.  In short, he's a shithead.

But it would have helped if you actually carried on to point out exactly how he's being a shithead: with the ridiculous assertion that he'd never met anyone who played D&D.
Yes, right Blakkie, you were a gamer but you never actually ran into anyone who played the single most played RPG in the history of time. :rolleyes:
Even if it was true it would be utterly fucking irrelevant; it would just mean that you were a fuckheaded ostrich with your head in the sand who had a very tiny social circle of fellow ostritches.  All it highlights is how utterly out of touch with reality and with the majority of real gamers you are, Blakkie.  And your only purpose for posting that was as a backbiting passive aggressive non-response to the much more believable and reasonable statement that most gaming stores don't stock Forge drivel, and that its rare to see anyone playing that junk.

There, was that so hard? I mean kudos to you J Arcane, for calling Blakkie the fucktard that he is, but really, you have to follow through and grind the fucker into the dirt, or he ends up being able to continue to not shut the fuck up about it, from a rhetorical point of view.  Its not hard, he makes it unbelievably fucking easy to call him out on his cretinous statements; he has so many of them.  So next time, please just go to the trouble of it.

Point well taken, sir.  I was in a bit of a bad mood, and I tend to respond poorly to such blatant dishonesty.  I get this wierd little thread of angry optomism, thinking that if I just tell the guy he's a lying fucker, he'll actually admit it, instead of just digging in deeper.  

As a result, I let my even temper slip, and was not really functioning at my usual capacity.  

That alone is a point of disappointment in myself, for letting the little fucker get to me.

Oooh, I was quite excited this morning when I saw the number of posts to this thread. I thought there might have been something interesting being said. Err...no. Some argument that obviously has a history of somekind that I haven't had the time to figure out what it is. Ho hum.

Anyway, in a spirit of research into Things I Know Naught Of, I have purchased a few PDFs of some of the aforementioned UK Forge games so I can see exactly what they are banging on about. I've also been tawling their sites to see what's what. Seems they have a real hate on for 'mundane' or 'traditional' RPGs. Well, we'll see how the stuff that they shovel out stands up to analysis once I've read through the PDFs.

Thanks
Franklin

Your rather cool fusion of Runequest, CoC and WFRP doesn't really fit in a thread about "Forgey Games" ;)

Well, obviously you need to quit designing like RPGs were a continuum of possibilities and joined one extremist camp or the other.  How else are we going to have a war around here?

The Contested Ground guys who made A/State and Cold City are very nice people, I've met them and I can't imagine them hating anything.  For them at least they're just making games that fire their imagination, one might not like a particular game but there's no war there.  Just guys making games they like.

Check the link in his sig.  GRIM has the rights to the British 1990's RPG "Blood!", has revamped the system and is pretty close to releasing it.  System-wise, think of a horror-oriented Runequest with Warhammer's critical hit's tables (I believe there are two separate critical tables for "Power Tools" and a dedicated "Chainsaw" table).  Theme-wise think "Dog Soldiers" or "28 Days Later" though it's equally good at doing "Saw", "The Thing" or any horror movie

(full disclosure: I'm doing some creature conversions and other donkey work for him)
