    Touching that topic is playing with fire. Morrus accused me of being a holocaust denier a few months ago and almost permabanned me for saying that despite the horrors they went through(a clear admission of the holocaust), some holocaust survivors are not above using their trajedy(another clear admission of the holocaust) for political gain. People use trajedy for political/financial gain pretty much every shooting, including the families of the slain.

    If Umbran is up to snuff i expect a thread banning for you! Flag on the play: Junior Self Modding!


    Don't you know citizen, you aren't allowed to moderate your behavior! Only properly appointed mods can do that!
    I wouldn't even censor you.

    I find arguing with pemerton to be one of those activities that I know isn't good for me but I just keep doing it anyway. Kind of like smoking would be, if I smoked.

    If I have to read one more of his bloody game logs...

    He pimps them incessantly, and refers to them to provide proof he's right about whatever he's going on about at the time. Usually that you can't get the awesome of narrativist play in D&D, but by way of asking what some technique for running D&D means or is used or whatever. Doesn't matter, it always comes back to pemerton pretending to not understand any points but those that fit his agenda to get people to acknowledge that narrativist play is just better.

    I *want* to like pemerton's game logs and his general support of 4e (I am "4e's diaglo" after all), but fuck no.
    Still excited about 4th Edition!

    While engaging in many of the things he calls out as bad in other playstyles. His hypocrisy is pretty astounding.

    Yes - neither more nor less vile than you or most other people, methinks.

    I tried to cover for nail bunny, but apparently I must spread it around...

    There are so few of us left that I really can't grant dignitas to anybody. I'm going to have to dig up some old thread and just start randomly granting it to people I don't remember.

    - - -

    In asshattery related news, does it make me an asshat that I think Ken St. Andre's bio is way too long? (Was looking at it on the Origins site... he's a guest of honor there.)

    http://originsgamefair.com/guests/

    Kenneth Eugene St. Andre arrived on Earth shortly after midnight on April 28, 1947 in Ogden, Utah. He grew up and lived all his life in Phoenix, Arizona.

    Ken’s main claim to fame as a game designer comes from his creation of Tunnels and Trolls in 1975. It was the second rpg actually published in the USA. Ken published it himself at the Arizona State University print shop in June in an edition of 100 copies. He only beat Empire of the Petal Throne into print by a couple of weeks and M.A.R. Barker’s game was by far the more impressive offering. In an effort to unload the excess copies not needed by his gaming friends in Phoenix, Ken asked Rick Loomis of Flying Buffalo to take them to Origins and try selling them there for $1 each. Rick kindly agreed and to his surprise managed to sell them all. When he returned from the Con, Rick made a deal with Ken to make Flying Buffalo the official publisher and promoter of T & T. That lucky deal has insured the survival of the game.

    Ken still lives in Phoenix, still does things for and with Flying Buffalo, still creates new games and new modules for his older games, still tends to get in trouble from time to time. Ken still owns the copyright to Tunnels & Trolls. And he doesn’t intend to quit doing any of those things any time in the near future.
