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.

The Clash sucks
That is all.

Absolutely Doc! About as punk as Mike Pence...

Punk sucks in general.

Especially the "real" punk bans. Fuck that pretentious bullshit.

But that's just my personal opinion, so feel free to disagree

Sammy, I think you buy into Henry Rollins self-aggrandizement too much...

Nah, I genuinely don't like the "true punk" bands and don't get why punk is so lionized in the culture. The music sucks and the subculture is pretentious and snooty.

Metal and Classic Rock are good. Punk is bad.

Also, in a perfect world, the 1970's would've ended with punk dying and disco living on instead.

Pundit can also be an asshole of sorts, but I've NEVER seen him try to...manufacture claims of perceived slights and try to destroy people because he doesn't like them.

Seriously, you've never seen Pundit manufacture, or at least massively exaggerate, perceived slights and try to at least take the slighters down a peg or ten? It's like you don't even know who Pundit is! Come on dude. That is literally his online persona. It's his bread and butter. He takes a mostly innocuous comment, and blows it up into a major issue as if it's an attack on all that is good and decent in the RPG world and tells you to fight them as if your RPG life depended on it. And then goes on to the next topic the following week making similar claims. This is what he does. It's what he's been doing since The Forge.

Well, Pundit takes the piss... And likes to wind people up.

But he's not rude to his customers and is a very good fellow to work with. He gave me loads of help with my game as a consultant.

I'm genuinely curious as to who you consider to be "true punk" bands...because pretentious and snooty are not words I would use for the majority of them.  Although I could see that applying to Rollins because he has an exaggerated opinion of his own importance...

but that was why I mentioned him.

Methinks the punk doth project too much

All the complains punks have about metal is far more applicable to punk and the punk scene. It reeks of projection and pretentiousness.

Punk is pretentious pseudo-intellectual conformity masquerading as non-conformity

You're a champion of nothing but your own interests, and you don't believe in Free Speech.  Again, you'd desperately wish to be part of SJW cool-kids club if only they let you in.  But they never will, because you did porn.

Zack's anti-Free Speech?

That would be a weird position for him. His persona and careers (both art and RPGs) depends entirely on a robust freedom of expression.

As for the kewl-kids club, its funny how puritanical they are about Zack's porno past. I think its more than his past, but the fact he didn't do the usual 180 "prons are bad, mkay" when he left the industry and he even dared to combine D&D and porn and that concept paid off (until it didn't).

Never trust anyone who talks that way, Cat, things are always less boring than Pundit makes them out to be:  http://dndwithpornstars.blogspot.com/2018/04/barney-rosset-james-raggi-and-why-youre.html.

And here's why I've never done a Kickstarter and am unlikely to ever do one.

Kickstarter is a GREAT tool, but like all tools, it must be understood and wielded properly. Our playtest and design group has several people who launch their own KS vs. those who farm them out and there's many, many issues with both approaches.

Self-publishing has many downfalls, but with all that responsibility does come autonomy. The KS were I've seen the MOST issues is the kind where an author is assumed to be responsible party, but in reality, the unnamed background parties are in control and dropping the ball.

Actually just a strategy session about exactly that situation on Friday. 

Then the brass dog machines will run down the moderates and take their books from their cold dead hands.  There are no winners in the culture wars.

A) Fuck the moderates. Mushy middle wants to be sheep? Great, then don't complain when the shearing starts and their asses end up on the BBQ spit.

B) Plenty of winners in the culture wars, but people should be careful what they ask for and learn to recognize grifters. But that will never happen.
