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.

Why is this person in the OSR?
« on: October 06, 2020, 06:54:11 PM »
Stephanie Baudelaire is a trans woman, and a proud activist in the causes of Leftist Politics and Antifascism/BLM.

Which is all fine and dandy, if you're a Democrat.

But then this is what he goes on to say, "The OSR Officially Endorses Leftism." See https://www.osrelfgame.com/post/nazis-not-welcome

Who is this and why should I care?
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.

Is this the same trans Stephanie that worked for Frog God Games by doing a cover and then backstabbed Frog God Games?

Absolutely everyone who loves Old School RPGs is welcome in the OSR.

Even Twitter freaks and the imaginary Naughty Nutzis who live in their heads.

Not only are they welcome in the OSR, they're welcome to post here!!

I thought it was hilarious.  It has to have been written by a 11 year old.

"Right now, the United States of America, the country where I live, is run by Nazis. No other conclusion would be logical, because they believe in Nazi ideas, like forcing people to live in prison camps where they are tortured and killed. Anybody who thinks that doing that is ever a good idea is a Nazi."

What a nutbag.

This person can point out the nazis and drive them out. 

Ok sure.  Conservative = Nazi.  I get it.  So people you disagree with = Nazi.  And Nazis should not have fun or get to play Games.

Agree or die.  Man, that’s getting more and more common lately.  And it’s not conservative, it’s radical.  In my lifetime Democrats and Republicans went to church together, drank beer together, were friends.  Now?  Different = evil, agree or become a nonperson.

Hit the road, freak show.  D&D doesn’t need your whack job dogma.

If her account is the same as linked in the post - she specifically calls out Venger Satanis as a Nazi...

LOL that whole diatribe is laughable. But I expect nothing less from such a lunatic.

Venger recently claimed that the OSR officially endorses Donald Trump for re-election, as what is obviously a stupid publicity stunt. So this is obviously a response to that, implying that anyone who supports Donald Trump is a Nazi.

Thankfully their post got locked on r/osr.

At least they understand the #CCP are Communists Nazis.

No, the OSR does not endorse Donald Trump for president.

And they could have stopped there...

Quote
We here at 2Stoners wish upon him all the Judgment of God, which it would seem is being done already.

...but they wanted to show everyone what a wretched individual they are.

I wonder if they actually endorse Christianity too, or simply use it rhetorically when convenient.

But who is that mysterious Nazi whom they don't name, but whose identity we probably either already know or can easily find out if we really want to see a Nazi talk about things?

Apparently it's...

Quote
I just didn't want to put the Nazi's name on my own website. He's a Twitter troll who goes by "Venger Satanis". A full list of the games he makes can be found via Google. I don't recommend his Blog.

His blog.

That Venger fellow has a really dull blog. "How to DM like a fucking boss," and similar publications, and lots of adventure modules with rough paintings of scantily-clad slim women with fake breasts. He seems to be trying very very hard for attention. But then, so is the transwoman. I suppose one day they'll settle down together and adopt a kidnapped Rwandan child.

Why does old Drumpf have to do with rolling dice, eating snacks and telling tall stories?

One of the great virtues of the dice is that they do not come with boxed text.

Calling someone a Nazi is what you do when you cannot articulate a single reason why their actions are questionable. I think Trump is a super easy target for these types of mentally ill morons simply because he never apologizes for anything he does, which enrages them beyond belief.

Fortunately, nobody owns "the OSR". This goes for the right-wingers too, but especially for these entryist fucks, who largely came in with Zak and his crew around 2010-2011 (although they don't like to talk about this anymore).

What's galling is that in its infancy around 2004-2008, old-school gaming was a fairly conservative place, but it had considerable ideological diversity - people just didn't care much about your politics as long as you liked old D&D the proper way. Nobody would try to destroy you for being a lib, or homosexual, or whatever. These people, on the other hand, want to decide what you are allowed to believe, and who is allowed to exist in the online scene. Fuck no.

Gentrifiers, get out!

You better defend "the OSR" then. Because this is what the locusts do - they find where you are, and eat your ass out of ideological house and home. If "the OSR" has any value as a brand or nomenclature for ease of finding content under the umbrella of "OSR" in terms of RPG's - do what you can to defend it.

Because the barbarians are at the gate.
