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.

Jessica Price goes ballistic on Paizo
« on: September 15, 2021, 12:14:27 PM »
Alexa, cue Ken Watanabe saying 'Let them fight' in the Godzilla movie.

Threadreader tale here: https://threadreaderapp.com/thread/1437545371245424640.html
Archive here: https://archive.is/ty2dF

I mean, this is comedy gold, because Price is such a lowlife anyways. But it's so much fun watching Paizo deal with the lunatic.

I'm having real problems with buying the authenticity of her sob story about how 'these offices haven't been cleaned or vacuumed in SEVEN YEARS'.

Lots more incoherent ranting about the execs in the thread.

Have fun!

"I despise weak men in positions of power, and that's 95% of game industry leadership. "

Isnt that why RPGs companies are so woke in the first place?

Maybe this is why WotC hired her.

Even though both WotC and Paizo are both woke doesn't mean they like each other. I think they despise each other.

What I find interesting is it actually helps confirm a suspicon I have long had specifically with this line

"So back in the day, Wes and I came up with a developer test that allowed us to evaluate applicants anonymously to help counteract bias.
That was how we ended up hiring Amanda, Crystal, and Linda, btw. They blew the test out of the water, unlike a lot of experienced industry guys we probably would have assumed would have been better at it if we hadn't anonymized. " then goes on a spiel on how they stopped using it well considering I'm pretty sure all those people were her mates and they all ended up being fired/quitting I'm not suprised they stopped using it

(Also confirms to me she was responcable for the big shift in tone for things at Paizo which is no suprise since she was bringing her buddies in.)

Well that was fun, but also it provides an example of one of the reasons that Get Woke Go Broke is mostly true: They eat their own.

To my cinical eyes this reads as a power grab by the woke, like those taking place in some video game companies at the moment.

But hey, they made their bed now they have to sleep in it.

She is right about that - stopped clock and all...

Of course with stronger leadership she would have been be long gone from the industry years ago...

Now what is really interesting is that last quarter on the icv2.com list of the 5 top selling rpg's baizuo was beat from their perennial number two spot by R.Talsorian's CyberPunk...

Might be just due to a sales blip, but with people on various forums openly saying that they are canceling all their Baizuo orders, things might get very interesting for them as a company...

  So...reading through most of that, it seems to me, if I had a job where I had people who made me as mad as all those folks seemed to make her...fucking quit and go somewhere else or do something else.   I guess I do not understand people all that well.

Let's not forget this is the same lackwit that got turfed off ArenaNet for picking a fight with Deroir, a major fan contributor/streamer for Guild Wars 2.

(A tale of idiocy, eternally retold, here: https://medium.com/@ColedOne/jessica-price-is-not-a-martyr-for-workers-rights-cd43ee8ffe43 )

The link includes screencaps of Deroir's remarks on Twitter, which were (in my opinion) perfectly respectful and constructive. We've got a few devs here: how would you have reacted?

'Cause we all saw how Miz Price reacted. Flipped her fucking lid and went off on the guy.

Also to add to my previous point I'm like 99% posotive that all the people she hired were the ones involved in that thing involving frog god games owner (Who's name escapes me at the moment.) A while back.

Wow reading more of her posts....holy shit, if she is a developer for RPGs that explains A LOT.  I read a few of them and I have to say WTF is wrong with people.  Her thresholds for white supremacy, being a -phobe, etc are really very, very small.

Hmm, Lisa always seemed like a strange egg to me, never could pin her down.  Seeing some of these stories about her are kinda putting some things together.

Yeap.

The grave dancing when Totalbiscuit died really sealed it for me.

As far as I'm concerned, I hope Price spends the rest of her craptastic life wondering when office politics will result in her getting (metaphorically) shanked in her workplace. I hope she never feels secure in a job again.

Also has anyone else noticed that all the former staff being held up to co-oberate Prices story are her mates and the ones she apparently hired? (Crystal frazier being the big one.)
