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.

Dude, you are not helping promote Dragonsfoot.

Not here to do that; this is the RPGsite.  It divides into people who already like Dragonsfoot, people who already hate it, people who aren't interested in 1e, and people who I wouldn't want to see there.

Very interesting pattern to this forum on DF:

Note the dates. Nah, it's simply coincidence that the various TSR alum have been abandoning DF for years as the amount posting of K&K Taliban increased.

Funny that.

Bit butthurt about your ban still?

Quote from: Willmark;992730
I'm sure it's entirely their fault that the K&K Taliban on DF has had bad interactions with them.

According to the internet, the evil K&KA Taliban remotely hacked Frank's account from a secret mountain hideout to create that PM.  And it's also a fake in collusion with the site staff.  And photoshopped.  And definitely not ban-worthy in any way, and shouldn't have been posted in public.

Definitely our fault it happened, anyway.

You poor man, I have every sympathy. How dare that evil Elfdart keep doing this to you with his genius wit!

That's quite rich, coming from a K&K Klansman who is also a mod on DF. See, when I mocked one of your fellow Alehouse Assholes on DF in a very similar way, I was treated to a temp-ban for a "personal attack", followed by a cringing e-mail from the head honcho admitting that he lied and there was no "personal attack". Maybe you should temp-ban yourself for this "personal attack".

Equating the Knights n Knaves Alehouse with the Ku Klux Klan is hilarious, isn't it.

You poor man, I have every sympathy.  How dare those evil K&KA and Circvs Maximvs types keep doing this to you with their subtle insulting style?

I always thought it was somebody inside the OSR.

Me too.  Although for the record, I have no idea who it is.  (I've been a target, although to nowhere near the extent that others have.)

This thread made me think of a TV tropes page: Mohs Scale of Science Fiction Hardness.

This is a really good thing.

Pen and Paper Roleplaying Games (RPGs) Discussion / Predictions for 2016?

I'll predict some serious kickstarter-related outrage (as in, more outrage than has already happened to date).  An exceptionally big kickstarter goes spectacularly wrong.

They didn't just plan.  Before his death Gary signed contracts with many authors to write 24 manuscripts, each of about 30,000 words, expanding one district of Yggsburgh.  Yggsburgh would become a place so fully-mapped and richly-detailed that you could move through it like a dungeon: mapped in ten-foot squares, each room keyed, each inhabitant statted out, working under Gary's guidance.  Most of these manuscripts were delivered, and the majority accepted by Gary for publication (mine certainly was).  Troll Lord Games actually published about eight of them IIRC, some in print and others only as .pdfs.

Then Gary died and the product line vanished as if it had never been.  I've got some of the manuscripts that were shared between authors for various reasons but by no means all.  They're generally rich in creative detail and would be hard to use in practice just because of finding the information you need among more than 700,000 words of text...

RPG companies keep the same game name even when it's different rules written by different people, which is like marketing Metallica as "Chuck Berry 6".

And then when they re-release a Chuck Berry album you always get someone who goes, "Why don't you just listen to Metallica?"

The Yggsburgh situation is a real tragedy.  I still have unpublished manuscripts for that on my hard drive, which are now totally unpublishable because Gygax's estate hasn't paid the authors.  (Their non-payment has activated the delinquency clause in their agreement so the rights have reverted to the authors, who can do nothing with those rights because they're derivative works contingent on IP they don't control.)  

Yggsburgh could have been quite cool.  :(

Thank goodness, my old softcover copy is physically disintegrating.

Well, I for one welcome our new Uraguayan overlords.
