Greetings!

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.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

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.

VisionStorm:
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.
