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.

It sure looks like the guy supposedly making "Star Frontiers" for New-TSR is a huge racist/anti-Semite.
But after #dnd Wokists spent years calling everyone they dislike "Nazis", it's unsurprising that #ttrpg gamers are finding it hard to believe.

If you dig hard enough, you'll eventually find a Nazi or a white supremacist or whatever.
Whoopity fuckin doo dah.

It may or may not be true, but if it comes from a social justice whiner, I'm just not going to care. An accusation has to come from a credible source for me to even start investigating whether it may be true.

Precisely.

They were warned that repeated misuse of 'Nazi' would come back to haunt them.

And now? It's like accusing us of being 'rayciss'. We don't fuckin' care.

Everything I've seen suggests the accusations are on target ... but nu-TSR is such an irrelevant dumpster fire anyway, I can't see the point in getting too exercised about it. If it were last summer, when it looked like they might actually be doing something, yes, but today? It's detestable, but it's just another step on their spiral downward, and about as relevant to the hobby as FATAL.

Yep. It's like just one big *yawn*. It is irrelevant and largely meaningless.

This hysteria though is inspired by the SJW's because the SJW leaders constantly encourage hysteria over "White Supremacy" and Yahtzees, aiming such efforts as a kind of vehicle for themselves to gain more authority, influence, and power. While also conveniently wiping their asses with the Constitution. (Look at efforts to corrupt and destroy the 1st and 2nd Amendments, as well as others).

Meanwhile, most normal Americans don't give a fuck because we know the truth--that "White Supremacy" and Yahtzees are ultimately marginal at best.

Good video and some good points!

I've always been suspicious of nu-TSR. The only reason to resurrect a dead trademark is to trade on the nostalgia of older gamers. If that's a significant part of your business plan, you're not focused on making good games. Cart before the horse, etc.

I believe this accusation in particular, but the only reason we're even hearing about this is cuz these people are obsessed with smearing their perceived political opponents and were desperately looking for something, ANYTHING, to hang on nuTSR for failing to toe the woke line. And woopie doo! After years of searching and accusing everyone who didn't bow down to them in RPGs they finally found their Yahtzee!

Sorry if I don't give a fuck by this point. Even if this was years ago before they wiped their ass with the word "Nazi", this is just some inconsequential social media rando with barely 100 follower before they shut their Twitter down. And AFAIK his book had nothing to do with Yahtzees. Who cares?

I would like to note that turnabout is fair play, and one of the reasons that Nina Jankowicz is no longer going to head up the U.S. 'disinformation bureau'.

Back on topic, though, has nuTSR actually published anything? Wake me up when they put out something more than a press release.

^THIS^

You know why you generally never see discussion of the latest NuTSR on dit here? Because they're just trademark hucksters with no games, and thus are completely irrelevant to the hobby. Tac on a loser Yahtzee Larper, and my zero fucks are still zero fucks.

Nobody cares about NuTSR.

Well, Morrus and ENworld care...  Why? Dunno. But never have I seen so much coverage on that site for such an irrelevant gaming company. Just think of the time and effort spent searching on the net to get the dirt on a nobody Yahtzee Larper... That's some serious zeal!

(I personally think it has a lot to do with the TSR trademark being out of SJW control, but that's just me.)

...

Double this.

Onaholearmy showed his true agenda when he said:

"Don't assume that just because you don't care about this kind of bullshit infecting our hobby, that I don't. Classic projection."

Actually, classic Leftist: Accuse the other side of that which you are guilty of.

Yahtzee Larpers are not "infecting" anything. How do I know that for a fact?

SPOILER ALERT: Because Nobody Likes Yahtzee LARPERS!

Nobody has anything to do with them. No one.

It's all just part of their continual rinse and repeat effort to brand anyone they don't like with guilt by association.


Meet the new broad brush, same as the old broad brush:

The real tragedy in all this, is that a bunch of do-nothings hold the TSR name.

  The upside is it sounds like they made themselves too obnoxious to WotC to be left alone.
 
  The downside is that it means WotC will probably hold on to it forever now.

You hit the nail on the head. They can't seem to get one thing right. If you've got the TSR name at least release some freakin' games.

I have the solution. The MSM and the libtards keep telling us that Nazis are the good guys, but apparently only when they're in the Ukraine, so Nu-TSR just needs to put a blue/gold flag in their Twatter bio and then all MUST be forgiven.

Somebody - that's not WotC or other woke retard - should do an official Star Frontiers 5e conversion and relaunch because the IP deserves a new life.

As for the "controversy", words like nazi, racist and anti-Semite are all bullshit and laughable terms now. "Anti-Semite" now means any criticism of Israel or any person of even partial Jewish heritage, "racist" means you don't tow the Democrat party line narrative, and "nazi" is anyone who disagrees with a libtard.

So be it. Fuck all the handwringing shitstains crying for censorship.

I think you’ve hit the nail on the head.

By doing so, the accusation when true (ie someone is actually racist etc.) loses its meaning. You sort of shrug your shoulders and go ‘Oh, another one. So what?’
