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.

Or watch Conan the Destroyer and vaguely map out the Illusionists crystal Castle/Dungeon.
OK, kind of a crap movie, But I did like the Illusionist.

First, Conan the Destroyer is awesome!  Second, LotFP had an adventure about crystal-headed children or something.  I frequently include crystals in my stuff, but they always play a minor role, so that's probably not what you're looking for.  A crystal-themed dungeon sounds cool...

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED!!!

As far as aesthetics I like where Cha'alt is going and I think more science-fantasy, Heavy Metal magazine (and movie) is a great direction myself. More planets, weird magic, freaky aliens, that is an avenue few have trodden so far. Something Moebius/Syd Mead -esque would be amazing to see as a setting.

You are not getting my superb layout guy.  :P

Thanks!  I agree, that's a strong direction and a natural fit for me.  Sorry I won't be getting your superb layout guy, though.  :(

Who do you think would work well with me?  Looking for someone to compliment my style, rather than clash with it. 

Kort'thalis Publishing is looking for a talented layout and dungeon map-maker (yep, lost more peeps).  Opening this question up to the community, what sort of vibe should I be going for?  Where should Kort'thalis Publishing go next in terms of aesthetics?

Also, if you know of anybody, feel free to let them (or me) know.  Thanks!

Greetings!

SIGH. All of these left wing Marxist idiots. They are so alien to me. Their whole world view is a fucked up trainwreck. Regardless of whatever degree Left these people happen to be, the constant crying and hysteria about "Nazis and Fascists!" is more than a bit melodramatic. The Leftists constant Reeing about Fascism and Trump being a Nazi, is nutty, terribly wrong and malignant. On some level, I find the petty viciousness and hysteria of it distinctly offensive.

I know all about Fascism, and Nazis. I have a large personal library of books covering everything in World War II, with many books read on the Nazis, how they came to power, their policies, government, philosophy, and the Nazi war machine. One of my formal specialties in college was America during the 1930's and World War II.

These Leftist demagogues and Marxist sheep don't have a clue what real Nazis are. If anything, it is the Marxists and the Left that are embracing a soul-destroying, authoritarian philosophy that seeks to crush and dominate modern human society.

My own father was a decorated veteran of World War II, and he fought against--and killed real Nazis. These hysterical Marxists can fuck right off. They are the people today embracing authoritarianism, and tyranny. They are the people that are supporting revolution, rebellion, and persecuting anyone and everyone that disagrees with their fucked up, poisonous ideology. They are Marxists. They need to realize how evil and tyrannical they are. It is the goddamned Marxists that need to be driven from our hobby and from our society.

Semper Fidelis,

SHARK

VS isn’t even conservative. He’s a lifelong liberal who voted for $Hillary—who’s basically a neocon, granted, but point being he was a Democrat who voted blue no matter who. He’s just not a very deep thinker, and recently left the Democrats like a year ago (from what I gathered from Inappropriate Characters) due to all the Trump derangement and riot-supporting, woke-pandering insanity. He’s probably just starting explore thinkers from the other side now he’s willing to expand his horizons a bit and it’s getting overexcited. Plus wasn’t the thing about the OSR supporting Trump a joke or something?

Anyways, these people are insane, what more can be said? They’re self-important cultural imperialists who love to whine about CoLoNiZaTiOn while simultaneously using terms like Latin-X, which is an anglocentric rebranding of the Spanish language promoted by people who think they know better than those Spanish speaking savages. They come and they colonize, and they look down on and try to expunge those who don’t conform while purporting to be champions of DiVeRsItY and InClUsIoN, but being the complete opposite. Which is what their intrusion into this hobby is all about. They’re colonizers coming to tell us what’s what. And those who don’t like it better get out of their iNcLuSiVe hobby, which they’ve claimed only for themselves.

I've entertained multiple political perspectives over the years.  Regarding the 2016 election, I unfortunately bought-into the mainstream media's depiction of Trump.  Back then, the radical-left hadn't invaded our RPG hobby (that I was aware of).  About 6 months into Trump's presidency, I started to see the fake news media for what they were and walked away from the Democrat party. However, I still consider myself an old-school liberal who leans conservative these days; not a leftist.

Wasn’t there a community called SwordDream already created for SJWs who played OSR games? This person should go there to find a like-minded echo chamber. The OSR is too broad to belong or have any political ideology. Venger’s declaration that the OSR endorsesTruml is similarly obnoxious.

Just so you're aware, my "The OSR endorses Trump" blog post was 90% trolling the radical left / SJWs currently invading our hobby.  Obviously, the OSR ranges throughout the political spectrum - which is probably a good thing.  Yes, it brought me a modicum of attention (buy Cha'alt: Fuchsia Malaise!), but more importantly it shined a light on the cancel culture cretins who'd love nothing more than to drive out anyone to the right of Joe Biden. 

And now several of them have exposed themselves.  Here's the latest: http://www.tabletoproleplaying.com/the-osr-is-anti-fascist/

Here's a slightly milder one: https://theotherside.timsbrannan.com/2020/10/the-official-music-of-osr-is-run-dmc.html

And this is a brief, re-worded version of the Elf Game blog: https://thac0rpg.blogspot.com/2020/10/thac0-stands-in-support-of-elf-blog.html

I expect to see more in the next few days.

I skimmed after the first couple pages... assuming no one has mentioned it yet, here's my hat into the ring: https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/303380/Crimson-Dragon-Slayer-D20-Revised

Crimson Dragon Slayer D20 is my own personal hack or house-rules combining 5e with OSR (O5R).  The PDF is free, and it's only 15 pages (that includes spells and artwork).  It's what I use for my one-shot Roll20 games, and how I playtested Cha'alt and Cha'alt: Fuchsia Malaise.  

Enjoy,

Who the fuck is this Tenkar dude and why should I care? I know he writes some shitty blog I never read. What else does he do?


Tenkar's Tavern is today what Grognardia was a decade ago.  It's probably the biggest hub of OSR "activity" in the blog-o-sphere.  Besides his blog, he has a podcast (surprise, surprise) and works closely with Frog God Games and a couple other major OSR publishers.  Personally, he and I were on good terms for awhile... until he denounced me for being za'akier.

The message is, of course, woke bullshit but echoing the others here that getting it taken down was moronic.

Although I am surprised DTRPG did considering the line in question.

Maybe because Tenkar is their #1 shill?
