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.

Congrats, Venger (I guess), you have your own KiwiFarms thread. I won't link it here, as it's filled with typical KF intrusiveness. But, lol anyway.

What is a Kiwi Farms thread?
What is KF Intrusiveness?
KF's basically a gossip forum, discussing weirdies on the Internet and mocking them.

My guess is that Tubesnake is on there and is trying to stir up some drama.

A forum where they dox controversial people on the internet, and then exhaustively dredge up every negative personal detail they can find.

I looked up Venger's thread. It's incredibly mild and tame compared to their usual hit pieces. Basically just says he's a guy with an edgelord persona who had some issues with commitment, but then says he seems to be raising his kids fairly well. It's nothingsauce.

Yeah, I saw.  Thank you?  It's amazing how they got some stuff right on the nose and other stuff they're way off base.  Plus, consumerism and conservatism bad (like wokes), but also calling people fags and condemning woke Star Wars (like the usual living in their parents' basement folks).

Anyway, I'm going to keep doing my thing...

If they really wanted the whole story, they could have just asked.  Yeah, I don't understand that whole vibe.  It's weird.  If I didn't like something, I would not waste hours of my time exhaustively investigating it... but then not even get that right.  Lol

No guest panelists?

Nothing set in stone.  To be determined...

But if I can afford you, Pundit, you're on the short list.

Record the panels and upload them somewhere at a latter date for those of us that can't attend.

Trying to get this thread back on topic, yes, I'd like to do that.  Or at least some kind of transcript of what was said.

I'm not altogether sure why (beyond mere self-confidence), but I firmly believe that Venger Con will revolutionize the art of Game Mastering, perhaps roleplaying itself.  A kind of forced evolution.

My advice, if you want it:

Either ignore it, or pop in with an account and say, 'Hey guys, if you want to ask me questions I'm right here!'.

And then laugh it off while planning VengerCon :D

Honestly, Ghostmaker's suggestion would be a good way to advertise Venger Con.
"I do not want to create a story, I want to create a stage. The player characters will perform on that stage and interact with the setting. When the players talk to their friends about what their characters did, then there will be a story."

Also, that Apocalypse World Thirsty Lesbian Story-Game stuff will be ridiculed mercilessly.

How about this:  Alpha Blue, but using FATE?

I'm sure it could be done.  Maybe even done well, but it might be a hard sell to other attendees.  I don't know.  If you're super enthusiastic about the concept, give it a try.

I'd run some of my own stuff in a Swords & Wizardry game or a BoL game. I think I should have no problem making it to Wisconsin, driven through there many times.

Hey Venger, looks like you started a snowball down the hill! Now there's a ComicsGateCon for next year. I can't stand the twat organizing it but this is good news for everybody, the more freespeech alternatives the better.

EVS, Ethan Vanscyver (or however the twat's name goes) is the one organizing it, @ you on the twatter.

I have a friend coming from PA, and this will be his first con experience.

Do you have any idea when we will be able to sign up to play/run games? My goal is to run a game for Venger ;D. Having a smaller con has some great benefits, but it might be harder to get pick up games.

Are you going to try to get any vendors?

Cool.  This thread is the place to feel things out and suggest games, test the waters, and get feedback before officially submitting what you want to run in January.  Once I have all those games in place, I'll open it up for attendees to sign-up for the games submitted in March. 

I will try to make myself available to everyone who either wants me to run a game for them and/or wants me as a player in their game. 

I'm sure pick-up games will happen.  Everything is secondary to fun.  I'm not the bureaucratic type, so there won't be much red tape getting in our way.

Attendees who have their own wares will get space to show them off and sell them.  But there won't be an entire dealer's room full of vendors.  Every other gaming con has that.  Venger Con will focus on our gaming past, present, and evolution.
