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.

Pulp Heroes vs. Gnomes
« on: August 20, 2011, 10:56:47 am »
My Gnomemurdered book includes, as one of its basic scenarios, an adventure that is pulp-themed.  You might think these two wouldn't really fit together.  Well, you'd be wrong and I'm not the only one saying.  Doc Savage says so too:




In fact, the decline of Pulp as a genre is directly linked to the Gnome's hatred of Doc Savage.  They have plotted for some time to discredit pulp as a viable genre, and continue to do so to this day.  Consider, for example, the godawful "spirit of the century" RPG; which is allegedly a "pulp" game but seems to go out of its way to misrepresent the pulp genre, as if it was trying to intentionally sow confusion and harm the integrity of Pulp as an adventuring concept.  

Now, consider the name of the publishing company that produces SoTC: "EVIL HAT".

That proves it!
