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.

By the way, good news. The new variant, Omicron or whatever it's called, may present with mild symptoms including so far no known loss of taste and smell. Most common symptoms with this strain appear to be rapid heart beat, a fever, both of which seem to go away in a few days.

There's no such thing as "free tests". Someone has to pay for them. In the UK it's every taxpayer, whether they use them or not (I never have).

Yes, of course it is paid by the taxpayer. And yes, this is meaningful. But, it's not the point he was trying to make. He was claiming the burden of paying for the test was on the employee, and citing an obscenely high rate (I suspect intentionally since the actual rate was less than half of that and that's for foreign travelers buying it on a one time entry basis).

If Pat knew of any human being paying thousands for weekly testing, he'd say so. He doesn't. It's a scenario he made up he's using to scare people.

He knows of no employee somewhere who is oppressed by the State to pay weekly testing for refusing the vaccine. It's nonsense, and a situation where he knows zero people actually in that position. It was his way of engaging in a scare tactic he posts as a defense mechanism to avoid having to honestly discuss topics. We we don't need any more manufactured scare tactics with this topic.

I'd use Zweihander. It's sleeker than WFRP4, and there is a fan made rule expansion to play using Zwei rules and WFRP setting:

Ocule already said he didn't want to give Fox any money
Same boat, I would touch that game based on the douche canoe who “made” it.


Care to explain it? I think I can gather what happened but you might throw me for a surprise.

From what I can actually remember off hand, he and pundit I know had a back and forth but as I understand it he’s harassed people not sure if it got legal or not. My reasons are he pretty much copy pasted whfrp 2e filed off the serial numbers and then aggressively goes after anyone who so much as looks at his “IP” sideways. His games lecture the reader on various isms, and my final straw for him was I went into the discord asking about the game. He’s even got a bot in there that filters banned words and phrases and oh boy it is extensive. I think he makes the high lords of terra jealous with how extensive it is. Basically if you’re going to play his whfrp clone then just pirate everything.

From the little bit I actually talked to him the dude just lives and breathes cringe. I didn’t get banned or make a big scene I just quietly left the server and good riddance. Like you know those people you meet and you immediately know you don’t like them?

My big annoyance with him is how he "marketed" his game.

Sockpuppet 1: What is this amazing new Zweihander game I keep hearing about?

Sockpuppet 2: Yes - it sounds like the bestest game ever - what is it?

Sockpuppet 3: Why yes, it is amazing, and let me tell you about it...



He spammed every RPG board that I'm aware of with these, and likely many that I'm not aware of.

Any links to the details of the murders you've seen related to the indie comic con and convention art circuits?

So far as I know. No actual murders have occurred. But theres been one near shooting, and two poisoning attempts in the last 5-10 years I've heard of from friends that attend cons and one that keeps track of the larger moral outrage/SJW attacks. I do not track this stuff as it is depressing to see these creeps rise in power again. I had my fill of this back in the 90s iteration. And back then they would gloat over any "disapproved" artists death.
Do you have any details of the near-shooting & poisonings of gamer-related figures, or is this too just hearsay?

Living in Florida,  "near-shootings" are rather common in daily life.

The near shooting one no. Only that a known moral guardian fanatic pulled a gun on someone at a con. I'd have to go hunting for the list of incidents and I really have no urge to read that ever again.
The poisoning one got some rather ugly news coverage. Luckily no one was severely injured that I am aware of. I'd post a link but the usual suspects here would just gloat over people nearly being killed.

As noted many a time. The artist and indie comic circuit can be appallingly vicious. Especially when these moral guardians get involved. Im just surprised that they have not resorted to violence sooner. But then SJWs are always cowards who prefer to attack from the shadows.
I wanna see some actual links to news stories and whatnot. We had full on moral guardians riding our asses about D&D for years but I don't recall any actual physical attacks.

Well, there was that SJW game designer who tried to kill Jeremy Hambly.

"Tried to kill?" He punched him a few times. Now, I'm not endorsing that -at all - but holy cow, try not to be such a hysterical old woman about it. I get that hyperbole is your whole shtick, but this is pure cringe.

He sucker-punched Jeremy from behind and then started viciously beating him while literally screaming "I'm going to fucking kill you". It took four people to tear him off. Given that as an SJW he's obviously a degenerate with no self control, it was entirely possible he was drugged out of his mind at the time. When he was forced out of the bar, he punched through a window.

If no one had acted to help Jeremy, his assailant would have beat him to death.  It's just a very lucky thing that SJWs are incredibly incompetent, and so they've only managed to murder a handful of people over the year. If their ability matched their desires, the death toll would be in the thousands by now.
Did the prosecutor of the case see it that way?

You mean the same prosecutor who let thousands of Antifa rioters, looters, arsonists and murderers walk without charges? Who the fuck cares? We all knew right away that the Government would be on the side of Hambly's attacker as soon as they figured out his political affiliation and the affiliation of the attacker. Justice in the United States doesn't exist anymore, anyone on the left is protected by the state and given carte blanche to kill, anyone on the right can only get justice by virtual miracle. And some states are worse than others.

Shit, Hambly's attacker's Prosecutor is on record as saying that because he believes in "equity" he thinks white people accused of killing black people should get the death penalty, but not the other way around. He's a fucking monster.

'Elective' does not mean optional. It means 'scheduled in advance'. As opposed to 'emergency', i.e. WE GOTTA CUT HIM OPEN RIGHT NOW.

Hochul's going to get someone killed with this, just like her buddy Cuomo was killing old people.
This is not the first time this has been done. It's not going to beget people killed, but it can certainly lead to prolonging suffering and a resulting reduction in quality of life. I don't approve of blanket cancellations of elective procedures far in advance when predicting a possible surge. It's different to suspend them when the surge is already confirmed (based on spiking hospitalization rate) and resources are unable to meet the immanent needs. For many elective sirgeries, hospital time is < 48 hours, and those beds can be cleared quickly enough. Besides, at this point, it's not like staff that would have serviced electives are going to be retrained to handle Covid emergencies, so it has a high chance of just causing unneeded idleness.

Keep in mind that wokeists get their understanding of violence from video games and movies. They don't know you can literally kill a man with one punch, if you're lucky and he's not. They think a person can be hit in the face fourteen times and still be walking in a straight line afterward. So they downplay 'brawling' and are shocked when someone brings a gun to the fistfight.

If anyone still wonders why people are seriously fed up with the “woke”:


“ Canadian school cancels ISIS survivor Nadia Murad over Islamophobia fears”
https://archive.md/XpitD
For those of you who are terminally uninformed, Nadia Murad is a Yazidi woman who was kidnapped into sex slavery by ISIS.

One more example of wokeists being quite comfortable with sex trafficking and rape. Whodathunk it?
