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.
NOTICE: Some online security services are reporting that information for a limited number of users from this site is for sale on the "dark web." As of right now, there is no direct evidence of this, but change your password just to be safe.

You have single handedly brought almost this entire message board to the defense of Zak, despite many here not being particularly fond of him, with your idiotic anti-semitic insane ranting. Congratulations, you've done the near impossible in bringing the message board together.
My God, you’re right! This is surely a sign that the end times are upon us!

LOL

Does that mean that we can actually start discussing his game design again?  He was/is capable of putting out some really good and challenging work.

I will probably never get to play it with my group, but it should be a wonderful looking book.

Well, I'm waiting but not patiently. It was supposed to be done in 2019! To be fair, it seems that its slow on the publishers side.

That said... It will be a nice looking book for sure.

Isn't light enough to play?  Like who ever has the higher stat rolls 2d10 instead of 1d10 with the highest result wins.

Regardless, my ‘tolerance’ of Zak, as you put it, has absolutely nothing to do with why you decided to bring Jews into the discussion here. That’s on you, and you have yet to explain why you decided to do so. To bring up Jews in a discussion that has nothing to do with Jews seems anti-Semitic. No, I don’t care if you had parents who helped Jews during WWII. You don’t get credit for their good deeds.

I suspect you respond to me with non-sequiturs because you had no valid reasons for bringing Jews into this discussion. You’re trying to avoid taking responsibility for your anti-Semitic rant about “Jew cards” because there is no reason Jews should have been a topic of this discussion.

So, one more time, yabaziou, why did you use the term ‘Jew card’ in this discussion, and how does that matter to this discussion?
Well, Zak is a Jew...whose behavior and alleged behavior does (coincidentally) exemplify many anti-Semitic canards.

Not to suggest that these stereotypes are less than abhorrent or have any general validity.

I'm just actually a bit surprised this is the first time I've seen his Jewishness mentioned by a hater, given the degree of overlap between OSR and alt-right.

The asshat is surprized nobody had mentioned Zak being a Jew (I didn't even fucking knew nor care one way or the other) by a hater because the OSR has a huge (in his addled mind) with the Alt-Right (a term I bet the asshat can't adecuatelly define).

But the mere fact that nobody had mentioned it, and that many that don't like Zak jumped down the troath of the nutso hater should disprove his baseless asertion.

I'll wait comfortably seated for the asshat to:

1.- Define Alt-Right in a way that's acurate.

2.- Provide evidence of the claimed overlap between the OSR and the Alt-Right.

3.- Failing that to kindly fuck of to TBP which I believe is it's natural habitat.

The notion of an exclusionary and hostile RPG community is a fever dream of zealots who view all social dynamics through a narrow keyhole of structural oppression.

You mean the part where the judge dismissed the lawsuit? Twice?

Oh not at all, that's not how these things work.

If the lower court doesn't accept our next motion on the case it'll be in appellate court for at least a year, probably a year and a half.

Whatever Something Awful goon you get your legal news from really should check with a lawyer before talking about cases online.

Out of curiosity, on what grounds was the suit dismissed?

I'm kinda following the Rebekah Jones vs Christina Pushaw case as well and doing some comparisons.

Paperwork's not in yet, but there will be a long paperwork trail you can follow over the coming year as the case continues.

It's better to get the info straight from that when it happens then to ask anyone involved, even me.
