Key points to really emphasize up front before info dumping on anyone, just in case you're not the only guy making an infographic

>MtG holds numerous sanctioned/official events, sometimes several in a week at game stores

>Most of these events are big deals for the stores that hold them (as they create incentive to sell more cardboard)

>Official MtG events require judges there to act as referee and make sure the rules are being followed

>Being a judge is a volunteer position, but there is a certification process which determines what sort of events a Judge is allowed to oversee

>Becoming a Cerifified MtG judge requires no background check, nor are judges required to report if they've been convicted of certain crimes upon applying

>Wizards of the Coast, the company which makes MtG, claims to be very strict about their code of conduct for events and competitive play, even going to far as to issue lifetime bans over relatively minor incidents.

>In spite of this, WotC does nothing to uphold the same level of professionalism in their judges, who attend numerous events as part of the Judge Program and as representatives of the community

>Several high level judges have been discovered to have sexual assault charges, some involving minors, amongst other serious crimes

>In some cases, this went unnoticed and completely unaddressed by WotC for years

Derailing it with the same old caster supremacy discussion we've had for years now. Makes me wonder if some of these posts aren't just copy-pasta'd from cuckchan. We know that there's faggots who are constantly watching both /pol/'s to try and mobilize counter-ops and disruption tactics. We also know that there's a definite SJW presence on cuck/tg/ that's trying to derail any thread about the topic of WotC and their pedo judges. They mass-flagged Unsleeved's channel after he put out his first video about pedos and rapists going un-banned from MtG.

That might be a bit too paranoid, but I have to wonder what kind of dumb sacks of shit would do this. Do cuckchan rapefugees not even read the OP before hurrying to post in a thread?

The stuff Crafty Games makes is relatively free of any kool-aid stains. I know personally that one of the designers behind it can be a bit of a lefty windbag and spends too much time on facebook whining about Trump, but Fantasy Craft and the Mistborn RPG are both devoid of any gender politics or grandstanding about the hobby being a tool for womyn of color to fight the patriarchy or any shit like that.

For RPG's your stuck with most things written suitably far in the past and MYFAROG. Board games are a different beast since Asmodée has been consolidating the major board games companies (they merged with Fantasy Flight, Days of Wonder, and bought the rights to Catan). These are too big not to virtue signal. Independent companies mostly sell niche products and don't need to signal because normalfags aren't their market. However independent stuff can still have designers who drank the koolaid, so do your research if it's important to you.

It actually has a very broad focus, in my opinion to its detriment. In the default setting almost every culture of Europe is somehow represented in what's supposed to be a small slice of scandinavia, pic related. The whole game suffers from being too political because it comes off as very forced. It's about european mythology but instead of a golden age it presents a land wracked with the same problems as modern europe.

MYFAROG has a combat system which sits in an uncomfortable boundary between a games like Rolemaster and your standard OSR in regards to crunch - something that lacks the freeform nature of the games Varg wanted to emulate, but not complex enough to be meme-worthy.

Setting-wise, it doesn't draw a lot of appeal because of Varg's focus on "high-born" individuals in the fluff. The pro-aristocrat tone is a very strong contrast to the fantasy that most people like - the "common man's hero" who rises up to save his people. That's setting aside the racial/gender problems that tend to rile up normalfags - real autists focus on portrayals of socioeconomic classes.

The common man on the other hand is physically and mentally tough from his hard labors, capable of proper animal and agricultural husbandry for the sake of feeding himself, in tune with both the natural world around him and the God in heaven through work and prayer, and so competent in his tools that me might match a noble-born in combat with no more than field equipment.

Greatness is a quality that arises from the individual. It is a matter of innate qualities tempered by circumstance. It cannot be taught through schooling, it cannot be bred through genetic lines, and it cannot be sustained through the generations.

No, genetics shouldn't be a problem. Genetic superiority might have mattered in a multiracial empire like ancient India, but in the ideal ethnostate based on the same European stock, superiority would come more from the traditions, spirituality, rights and duties inherent to the ruling class.

You are only objecting to hereditary positions. If you have a large pool of nobles, or whatever you want to call them, that are all instilled with the same values and principles, you can elect the leader from within their ranks, or even create a form of noble council government. The point is that the leaders ought to be inherently superior to the masses. Even today people largely expect it to be so, which is why people keep getting pissed at corruption even if we have degenerate "democratic" regimes full of cheats and charlatans.

>It is the right of the people

By whose word? Marx? The French revolutionaries? Plebs can say whatever the fuck they like when they hide behind "democracy". It's every man's right to get free heroin and dragon dildoes from the state, every child's right to forever mutilate their reproductive organs and turn into abhorrent monsters, every niggers' right to rape whenever he wants and everyone has an undeniable right to never ever be offended by anything, lest they be nazis, in which case they should all get shot.

This are the kinds of "rights" you espouse.

The issue is that traditions and education alone are insufficient to ensure a superior nobility. And even if it were - why would you not educate everyone in the same means? The entire process is entirely arbitrary, and furthermore, restrictive to development. You can make an argument that scarcity of resources dictates only a portion of humanity can be chosen for enlightenment, but what of when those resources are expanded? Or when they are lost? In the former, history shows that those in power will never allow others to take power - and so human development will be stagnated by the very traditions that were meant to uplift it. In the more likely case of the latter, the burden of scarcity must then be forced upon the common man. Kept away from such concerns, the bond between noble and commoner is stretched further, for the former continues to live without worry while the latter suffers. The only possible result is a rebellion of arms - or else a mass purge. Such was the way the communists handled their inability to deal with scarcity, as have all authoritarians.

The fate of republican government is not much superior - corruption is a human condition. It is something that bleeds throughout man, regardless of circumstances. Yet this corruption is proportional only to the power given to those in governing positions. Consider the United States or Rome, in their early days in contrast to the latter. As the state grows in power, as it becomes more involved in business, so too does decay sit. This is a lesson which the early founders of these nations had not yet learned - that government must not merely be limited, it must be excessively limited. Every amendment, every bill, grows the state. Policies to curtail it are necessary. But when you place an aristocratic regime, this becomes impossible.

>It's every man's right to get free heroin and dragon dildoes from the state

>every child's right to forever mutilate their reproductive organs and turn into abhorrent monsters

>every niggers' right to rape whenever he wants and everyone has an undeniable right to never ever be offended by anything

No man has the right to claim things from the state - be it material possessions, or a birthright. He has the right to do abhorrent things to himself - but not to to bring harm to others. Offending is not harm. Rape is a form of harm. This is a matter of the law.

In contrast, the product of aristocratic regimes has been one where those in power have spoken against these matters, while ignoring those same rules themselves. Where the lust of a nobleman might claim a dozen women, while he at the same time puts men to death for the same deeds. The law is a matter meant to be equally applied to all - and this has never been the case in any autocratic state.

You speak of these things while imagining yourself a potential nobleman, deluding yourself from the truth - that a chance at "virtue" as you imagine it is nothing more than a simple lottery game. You are no different than the communists who imagine themselves governing things, while they themselves are fated to be the first ones put to death by the workers they claim to champion. In your arrogance you both make yourselves enemy to the human order - the eternal march toward the stars which can only be reached in a society where man's success is earned only through his merit.

A working communist society has never existed. Working traditional caste or nobility based systems have existed in a plethora of variations throughout all of human history.

>>353695

Corruption is always a concern, but democracy makes it much more problematic. First of all it is infinitely easier for elected officials to cut and run, leaving the society they were supposed to lead in ruins while they saunter off to globalist NGOs with their ill-gotten gains. A traditional elite caste on the other hand, would have a vested interest in keeping their lands and nation functioning. Futhermore, a clearly defined elite wouldn't be able to just slink away from responsibility as a "ordinary man" once his term ends.

The only real issue is the danger of the elite caste as a whole degenerating, but this could potentially be solved with competition within the elites or a Kshatriya/Brahmin duality.

>This is a matter of the law.

Equally as worthless. By what authority does the law exist? Modern legal states are all based on elected officials, all influenced by degenerate NGOs and interest groups that smear their way with money or threats. We have laws that actively discriminate against the population in favour for foreign marauders, "hate speech" laws that punish people from merely offending people. This is the clown world that democracy eventually descends into.

Democracy could have been a good idea if the masses were smart enough and able to choose for themselves. But when they are reduced to cattle brainwashed by media propaganda controlled by the very same international filth that puppeteers the governments, it's a exercise in futility.

You're hardly one to speak of delusions if you can look at democracy and claim it's a good thing. You are merely parroting what your Jew overlords have instilled you with, democracy is great goy, it's your duty to vote, make sure to watch the talmudvision to see which candidate to vote for!

In this way they leave an opening for other governments to slip in - yet at the same time, they leave an opening to correction, if the people so will it. Thus those who would degenerate a democracy will seek to establish governments with such weight that they make it, by creating a web of laws which obscure simple governing - but this is a very simple fix, as simple as limiting the possibility of the governing body to make amendments.

>on the law

You pretend that this is the fault of republican government but you are a fool - everything you detail is a symptom of human society. You make a proposition of an alternative form of government and claim that it would erode these ancient demons of the mind of man, and yet are incapable of actually detailing how these will be prevented. You quite certainly have no historical basis to show it - for if such a virtuous government existed, we wold clearly have it as a basis from which to define others. Such is your folly.

>>353701

>Also, who provides that right, because those work two ways, if you have a right demand, someone needs to provide it.

The right of the people comes from the people. It is an innate natural right. Man is born free and it is thus his right to remain free. To be provided anything else other than this liberty is not covered by this.

To evade poor governors, the solution is quite simple: limiting the power held by the governors. Consider the US, where the power of the state is far greater now than it was in the past. And as a result, the corruption in the nation is far greater. One must simply take that power from the state.

Again, the delusional one here is you. You paint all "autocracies" with broad strokes as if a soviet backed banana republic is the same as a centuries old traditional monarchic or caste based empire.

You also seem to be confused about the "autocrats" being synonymous with the law. The basic foundation for any of this to work is that they are bound by principles and traditions that limit their power. Spiritual or philosophical, the very point is that adherence to some ideology makes them better and more "noble" than the common man, and thus deserving of the responsibility of leadership. Historically, it is when the ruling casts eschew their principles that their system of governance degenerate. Ensuring that there is enough competition within the noble class, or checks from another caste, to enforce adherence to the principles is then required to keep the rulers' superiority intact. A Damocles' sword.

You fail to explain how a democratic government is supposed to be protected from corruption. Limiting amendments is pointless, as the laws are based on the will of the plebes and can thus be changed by the same, sooner or later someone will just cut through the red tape.

You also fail to account for the predatory nature of global political elites. When the Wallstreet jew has more in common with the Bolshevik jew than the real people of his nation, they would rather work together than serve the goyim, as history shows time and again.

>You pretend that this is the fault of republican government

No, the ten-generation rule is a common problem in most forms of governments, even traditional aristocratic ones, as I just mentioned.

The issue is that corruption is infinitely easier when all law and power is based on the will of the easily influenced cattle. You can deny reality all you like, but seeing how suddenly miscegenation, sodomy and genital mutilation of children (as long as it is done in the name of faggotry) has become accepted and protected by law should tell you all you need to know. If you push enough pozzed Buzzfeed listicles down the throats of the catladies and shitlib children, you suddenly have a horde of useful retards that will vote for whatever inhuman filth you have in mind. And then you can bus in all manners of foreign apes, rats and roaches to throw in some extra votes, and shout racism if anyone objects. This is how your beloved democracy works.

You say I have no historic basis? Look at how long India and China prospered with these kinds of governments. Yes, they went through ebbs and flows, but you could still trace the same line through the centuries until they fell to foreign colonial aggression. And in no fault of their own, I should add, as they would have little chance of stopping the juggernaut of European superiority and technology no matter what their governments were like.

>The right of the people comes from the people. It is an innate natural right.

And again, where does this come from? The assholes of the founding fathers and their French inspirations? "Freedom" is just a retarded buzzword, even in our most natural state we are not free, but slaves to the elements, our bodily needs and psychological makeups. Freedom is a luxury granted us by the guarantees of a functioning government, and then usually limited to some degree and paid for by our allegiance or taxes.

There has never been a case in history where the ruling class has not thrown aside their ideals - especially when the promise of greater power exists. Competition will not solve this; indeed, competition between families, within families, have both proven historically to bring about internal struggle within the nobility. This is for a simple reason, the same reason which plagues republican governments- the death of the

>You fail to explain how a democratic government is supposed to be protected from corruption.

Bureaucracy. Democratic states move only at the speed at which culture shits, and even then, they are slowed by the pace at which a law must be passed. Consider the Imperial vs Metric system. To make the shift from the former to the latter was easy for many nations, because the state could make the decision without much objection. But in the US, this proved impossible, for the simple reason that not everyone, not every state, would come to agreement.

The same principle applies to republican government as a whole. It slows them down. This is the greatest loss of such states, but it is also its greatest advantage, for it prevents corruption from spreading. The United States had only the barest countermeasures against corruption, and yet naturally managed to resist it for over 135 years. And yet despite the last century having undermined much, it has nevertheless proven resistant to the same corruption that has plagued its fellows in the EU.

>When the Wallstreet jew has more in common with the Bolshevik jew than the real people of his nation, they would rather work together than serve the goyim, as history shows time and again.

Allow me to demonstrate your folly with a very simple change of words:

>When the English nobility have more in common with the French nobility than the real people of his nation, they would rather work together than serve the common folk, as history shows time and again.

Furthermore, because the latter relies on the personal dispositions of the rulers, there is an even greater tendency for these groups to enter into wars with each other as result of personal insults. The common man is ignored entirely, and forced to fight wars on behalf of the corrupt aristocracy.

Why should any man be forced to fight and die on behalf of another? Why should he leave his son without a father for the sake of a stranger?

>The issue is that corruption is infinitely easier when all law and power is based on the will of the easily influenced cattle.

This is incredibly false. Degeneracy breeds at the rate of human curiosity, and has always been found within the elites - the elites who, at the same time, prosecute it within the commoners. The difference is, when something is a taboo for the common folk, they as a collective will push against it, and prevent it from taking power. Keep in mind, even the hive of degeneracy that is California voted against fag marriage as late as a few years back - it was only by pressure from the elite, in violation of the rule of law, that this was changed.

Those who rise to power in republican states will be corrupt, as those born into it will be in autocratic states. The only difference is that while the former are limited by the resources it takes to influence the populate, the latter have no restrictions on the corruption they may allow.

>And then you can bus in all manners of foreign apes, rats and roaches to throw in some extra votes, and shout racism if anyone objects.

You pretend that open borders are somehow a requirement for a republican state. They are not.

>You say I have no historic basis? Look at how long India and China prospered with these kinds of governments.

Opinion immediately discarded. Chinese history can be defined as following a very simple trend: Man founds dynasty, China runs well, his kids take over, China runs less well, their kids take over, things get even worse, and eventually things go so poorly someone else arises, and the cycle continues on.

These governments have always fallen to corruption. They have always required another to step in and take power - someone who did so through their own merit and ability. Again proving the very simple fact that greatness is a trait which cannot be bred into a governing body.

I may ask you the same - Who decides the ruling class? Who gives them the right to rule?

Is it themselves? If this is so, why should a meritorious commoner not have the right to take power? Why should a man of demonstrably low quality not be stripped of aristocratic prestige? Who would judge this?

And if it is God? Then who is to say what God says? Perhaps God grants the right to self-rule. Perhaps he appoints aristocrats.

See now your own folly and weep. Further, I tell you this - government is an unnecessary factor. It is a symptom of the human need for defense - defense of borders, defense from foreign powers, maintenance of certain factors of infrastructure, trying criminals, etc. The community can of course provide these things on its own - it simply finds this matter of specialization more effective. But the simple fact is, people can operate effectively even in the absence of a state. This fact alone stands in contrast to your claim for the need of a ruling class.

The entire concept is rendered ridiculous by the fact that, at this present moment, we do not have a "virtuous elite" - we only have a corrupt class of financial elites. So the question begged remain - Who determines these virtuous leaders? Who is to say that the ones who rise to power are virtuous? The simple fact is that what you're describing - a collective of virtuous individuals rising up and putting themselves into power - is impossible. You can, at best, hope that a single individual will rise to power, and form a dynasty. Yet it will not be men of equal status who he appoints - it will be sycophants and other lesser men.

Now, with regards to the economics discussion:

Individuals, not communities, determine what gets produced. The only time the community decides is in a socialist state, where the government commands the economy. But the free market, left to its own devises, will settle things just as well.

The reason governments form is this: scarcity. And when one person has something that another lacks, sometimes violence is a good way to take it. Further, people are attracted to those of like-minds - and so groups of the violent gather together. They target others, exploiting their resources, while doing no work for themselves.

So one of two things happens. The first is that individuals in a community pool resources together to train their own soldiers, perhaps prompted by a strong leader, to defend them from outside threats. The second is that these threats take over the community themselves, and become the government. These communities differ in origin, and yet both have the same result - the birth of the ruling, noble class. Either as protectors of the people, or as exploiters. This origin is the "traditions" you speak of. Unfortunately, in the long run, this never lasts. For political purposes, the ruling class interacts with its neighbors. Those who championed the people and those who oppressed the people blend into one, an entity of its own which exists only to maintain its own existence and its own privileges. And thus the seed of corruption grows to a tree, beautiful on the outside, but rotten on the inside.

><Pic related, its the face of your community you cock sucking degenerates, why dont you go back there

>Democratic states move only at the speed at which culture shits

No, it moves at the speed that the elites want, if this is a problem with traditional governments, it is at least as big a problem with democracy. Again, you must be utterly blind if you can't see this happening today. The elites have decided it is easier to elect a new population than to retain the graces of their original voters, and so we see the mass import of foreign rabble. In the US you can even see how the previous nigger administration placed immigrants specifically in opposing states with the aim to shift the demographics. These kind of globalist shenanigans to annihilate the natural population are infinitely more vile and evil than anything traditional governments are wont to do.

>And yet despite the last century having undermined much, it has nevertheless proven resistant to the same corruption that has plagued its fellows in the EU.

Again, you are in dire need of a reality check. The US is utterly corrupted with a web of jews, corrupt officials, corporations and international organizations whose sole function, at best, is to serve Mammon while the population languish. And in the worst cases, they actively work to genocide the white population.

>When the English nobility have more in common with the French nobility

This is a strawman. While not nearly as bad as my example, it is still something that should be avoided, globalism of any kind above national interests should be avoided at all costs. You will also do well to note that this trend is mostly European, where the cultures involved have been largely similar in the first place, similar problems aren't nearly as prevalent in other parts of the world. In addition, you seem to forget that the power of nobility is linked to land. Even if English and French aristocrats would conspire together, they would still have to satisfy their populace to avoid rebellion, modern globalist rats on the other hand, don't have this constraint.

>it was only by pressure from the elite, in violation of the rule of law, that this was changed.

Oh really? Then why do we see the dildo-waving hordes marching about? If this was a push from the democratic elites, they certainly managed to socially engineer the people to support it fast enough, cue the buzzfeed listicles of "15 things you won't believe will fit in your anus".

Also consider the reactions to faggotry-pushing in both cases. If a traditional noble government were to push this kind of thing with an iron fist, the people would seethe with just contempt and resentment, adding to the ticking bomb of revolution. Meanwhile, in the modern democratic regimes, even if the majority does not support it, the very functions of "democracy" and the media brainwash makes the masses think that this is a natural democratic decision. Consequently, they will largely grow to accept it, and the minority that does not can be painted by the elite media as evil undemocratic nazi bigots.

>The only difference is that while the former are limited by the resources it takes to influence the populate, the latter have no restrictions on the corruption they may allow.

Nope, I don't buy it. You cannot with a straight face claim that the "resources to influence the population" is somehow a limitation. Not when we live in the nightmarish clownworld of today. The cattle is influenced so fucking easily, it is a wonder they even have the IQ necessary to breathe on their own. It is only in these last couple of years that people have started to wake from their stupor, and then only because the white genocide has been pushed too hard, too fast, and people have started to notice inconvenient truths like constant terror attacks and the fact that 12 year old Afghan refugees are actually 30 year old terrorapists. And even then you have a sizeable portion of the population that is either so dumb or so evil that they are actively shilling for this shit. If the kikes hadn't overplayed their hand, people would have hardly noticed what was going on.

>Chinese history can be defined as following a very simple trend

I already explained that. The will of God, the Mandate of Heaven, ancestral tradition, chivalric code, the specific form does not matter. What matters is that the power is seen as coming from the nobility adhering to some strict, supernatural principles that hones them into better men than the commoner.

The natural leader of a society is always the best man among them. You may claim you want a potato or a sub 70 IQ somalian woman to rule you, as long as they are democratically elected, but I don't believe you. People will never accept to be ruled by their inferiors, we seethe with righteous contempt at corruption and hypocrisy, and doubly so at those who would presume to lord above us. This is why we need our rulers to appear as our superiors. The moment you look at your leader and think "I could've done this" (Which is practically always in a democratic regime), he has lost his credibility.

Let's break this down a bit for the sake of deconstruction:

>with

1. The Mandate of Heaven

There can only be a Mandate of Heaven if there is a God. Otherwise there is nothing more than people claiming power. Accepting that there is a God, you must also prove that He desires there to be appointed rulers, and not for the people to have self-rule. Governments of both sorts have claimed to be ordained by God, yet there is no proof you can give that this is the case.

Assume you sever the Mandate of Heaven from God, and that it is simply an abstract principle - How does that explain the emergence of republican government? What does this mean? Did Washington take the Mandate of Heaven through violence, and just toss it aside? Did it fade away? Or did he grant it to the people? Place it in a Constitution? Is it still floating around out there, waiting for someone to take it up?

2. Superiority of People

I repeat this point strongly. There can only by three situations:

> People are inherently better than others by blood.

Genetics has proven this to be false. Better people are more likely to produce better children, yes, but environment is still required as a development step. Further, even the lowest of families can produce a child far greater than their parents, and the greatest can produce sub-standard offspring. This is biology, it is well studied, and it well documented through history.

>People are inherently better through being raised.

If this is the case, your noble caste is only better because they were born into that case. Yet if this is the case, I ask the question again - why would a society not choose to educate its entire people the same way? Given even a modicum of study into political theory, you would recognize that over 2000 years ago, Plato recognized that this was the case, and proposed that all people on society be given equivalent education - with those evaluated to be the best being selected for the role of Philosopher-Kings. Plato recognized the issues of lineage and was critical of democratic government, having lived under it. And he was a lot more clever in proposing a solution.

In any case, this goes back to the earlier point which you ignored: The only reason to place limitations on who is educated, under these circumstances, is because of scarcity of resources. But this fails to leave a solution for the expansion of resources or what should be done when those resources are compressed. And if the resources exist to educate the entire populace - Why have a noble class, and not a republican government?

>People are inherently better through virtue of position.

In this case, there is no difference between being born into or being elected into a position, and anyone who becomes a "leader" will immediately be elevated as a result. If anything, the elected leader will have a stronger will to power, since he had to at least go to some effort.

3. The Will to Power

Your argument rests upon the idea that an autocratic aristocracy will rise up under some great leader and take power. Yet this is clearly not happening - there is only you, here on the internet, arguing that it should happen. Now that's all fine, but what do you do if the next person who wants to "fix things" does what Washington did and helps to legitimize republican government? What do you do if

4. Corruption in the System

Your claims are that because the current republican system is corrupt, therefore therefore the whole concept of the system causes corruption. Yet when pointed to the fact that every dynasty throughout history has fallen to corruption, you claim that this is simply a rule of generations. Yet all you care about is the "good times", ignoring:

>the last days of a dynasty

Under a bad ruler the land itself suffers. The absolute power maintained by a true autocrat allows them to cause great damage to the land and people during their time in power. A mad ruler, given sufficient power, can quite literally demand his soldiers battle the sea itself, and see no consequences. This is far less impact than a republican government can demand.

>revolution

The dynasty change is your way of claiming autocratic states correct themselves, and yet you ignore the potential of the same thing happening in republican states. If you use the example of Rome, it seems that republican governments are, in fact, the way by which you produce the strongest autocratic rulers - consider that a man like Julius Caesar was only able to do what he did because of the republican state. Had a man like himself been born 100 years after that point in similar circumstances, he could have done nothing.

Your entire argument is based on the idea that the present system is flawed, yet you are more than willing to ignore the corruption present in autocratic systems. You are nothing more than a hypocrite.

No.353813

>>353812 (cont)

5. Will to Power

You champion the idea of a will to power being essential while not only championing a government which restricts it on the vast majority of its own population, but you also absolutely lack it for yourself. Even with the corruption of the US today, it is far easier than you seem to believe for a person to attain lateral movement. A man from the absolute lowest part of society, given sufficient will, can enter the military and become a distinguished officer. Someone with a very simple idea can start-up a business and become wealthy off of the most mundane of inventions - an extra piece of metal behind an earring, a new model of bra, whatever other mundane thing people will purchase for improving their quality of life. If you follow politics closely, you'll realize that the internet has made grass-roots movements more viable than ever - and the reason the elites have pushed so hard to restrict the internet is because this threatens the stability of the two-party system, backer-based system which gives them power.

This is a republican government at the end of its ten-generation period - a republican government at its absolute weakest point. You, right now, if you are a US citizen, are living in what could be considered the absolute bottom point that a republican government can sink to. And yet if you simply choose to practice the will to power, and have any degree of talent, you can still advance yourself.

The simple fact is you choose to project your own failures on the populace as a whole. You cannot live without someone superior to yourself giving you direction in life, pointing out what you should do. And I admit, there's a bit of romanticism in the idea. The ideal king, the man to look up to, to follow. But the simple fact is such a thing has never existed and will never exist. I for my part consider no man superior to myself - particularly by virtue of blood - and refuse to follow anyone who claims otherwise. These same beliefs will always be maintained by the people, and indeed, they will arise even among the nobility over time. And it is from there that republican government will always return.

6. The "I Can Do Better" Problem

Here's a spoiler - People have been critical of the aristocracy throughout most of history. The only reason these people maintained power was because they had an army, the only reason the armies worked for them was because they were paid, and the only reason the armies got paid was because of taxes collected only because the aristocrats maintained the army. It's a cycle with zero difference between an theoretical anarcho-capitalist state, except replacing the word "feudal lord" with "corporation".

I still remember him getting constantly mistaken for Arthur Chu, who is an insane manlet who leaves bomb threats.. and is also a journalist.

The Niche Gamer article is somewhat interesting, especially after they published that piece not too long ago that was almost obnoxiously on the side of Christine Sprankle and her bullshit harassment claims, calling her the most well-known MtG cosplayer and such, even when all the metrics clearly showed otherwise.

The best thing about this is that it diffuses the responsibility of supurious claims, as well as boosting a narrative by volume and authority. Everything from journalism and wikipedia to science and holocaust "history" employs this. One obscure, kooky source that would've been taken as a joke on it's own is carefully quoted, re-portrayed and mirrored through secondary sources, and in the end you've got a robust network of lies backing itself up no matter how ridiculous it's foundation are. And if someone manages to prove the deception, the majority of the peddlers can retain their authority by excusing it all on bad sourcing and a promise to try harder (at not getting caught) next time.

A couple years back, when that one "gaming has a white male terrorist" problem was making the rounds, I recall making a few observations that it was absolutely baffling to see so many people eagerly jumping at the chance to bemoan the state of their hobby community and how they were so astounded to find out there were so many rapists and racists in their stores and conventions. It baffled me because these people know their communities better than some fame hungry retard trying to use feminism and sexual harassment to get money. They should have known she was full of shit… But now it occurs to me that I was being too generous, or perhaps too naive in my appraisal of the situation.

The kind of people who rush to virtue signal and cry about a ridiculous story of rape and abuse at the hands of nerds are SJWs. SJWs never miss a chance to virtue signal. They also like to use forums and community gatherings to accrue status and power, either by becoming community managers, mods, or volunteers at cons. Of course they make up the most vocal and visible bemoaning within the community.. But the other part of that is the intrinsic belief that the story could be possible, because seemingly more often than not, the most outspoken, aggressive, and zealotrous SJWs are pedophiles, rapists, and degenerate psychos.

For people like you or I, the idea of someone being dragged into a backroom by some balding middle aged neckbeard is unthinkable, because we don't have that kind of evil in us.. But for SJWs, that's not only something they could imagine happening, but likely something they've done or considered doing.

Now that Unsleeved guy is on the warpath with this one, the attitudes have shifted pretty drastically. The same people who were rallying to drag him down and exile him over the mere accusation that he may have done something wrong are now advocating a hands off approach

>WHOA THERE! Just because all of these people are convicted sex offenders doesn't mean we should jump to any conclusions now!

>We're not pro-pedophilia! We're just being reasonable!

>Let's wait and see what happens instead of rushing in and demanding something happen over these verifiable facts!

What would drive someone to do whatever they can to downplay digging into the pasts of as many judges and community personalities as possible? Sounds like some faggots have skeletons in their closets or they simply don't want to be dragged down with the rest of the subhuman scum when it's revealed that they've been palling around with some of the people who get outed sooner or later.

I work with a guy that has his coming out soon. He's pretty basic politically but I read over his game and there's no gender or race bullshit, a goal was to keep anything of the current year out of it, women can be bounty hunters(? forgot the name for adventurers) but that's all on the cucky side. It's all about a collapsing empire pretty much straight out of Spenglerian ideas. Magic powers some industry but it's still medieval, mages are super powerful but insane so they're lobotomized and used as power sources. Needs some work but it sounds it's moving along. Seems really malleable as a system, if he gets an editor it'll be an awesome game. He sent some artwork my way recently. He posts on cuck/tg/.

Gonna ask if he's cool with me posting some art. Don't mean to shill but I think it'll be good once it's balanced, edited, and some rules are better described.

Well you're just not thinking hard there. For example, the price of these legacy cards may very well depend on demand being only available in the secondaries market so people busting the format's price point is missing the counter point. They want demand for those legacy cards to stay high to keep the value in the collection and the 2ndaries market going. It's like the world's most boring cardboard ridden ponzi scheeme.

So now that Magic requires background checks for officials, I really would like to see someone vaguely officially (Manager at LGS ect.) ask Wizards if proof of a completed NICS check/concealed carry license (Having a PAL works if any Canadian wants to give it a try) satisfies the requirement. Allows spreading the scandal to a whole new audience (that would eat the initial scandal up) if Wizards say no. Generates SJW tears if they say yes.

You're retarded. Skill is the best gatekeeping mechanism because it's free and a pain in the ass to accumulate. Money is shitty because people who have much money but zero interest in Magic (such as the people actively buying out cards and creating the artificially scarce gate in the first place) are the ones controlling the gate; if you're reluctant to have people who don't care about the game in your community, why would making them the watchmen solve anything?

All money-based gates do is make people bitter. The Modern players in my town are, on average, much more bitter and tryhardy than the Standard or Limited players. Why? Because they invested money in a deck (like Faeries or some other trash) and feel entitled to a competitive performance.

>but if skill is the gatekeeping mechanism then more people will play because they want to play instead of wanting to show off their money

Things die, and I doubt Magic has more than 10 years left in the tank before some scandal collapses the company or power creep disinterests most players. There are other tabletop games to fill the space of socializing, and there are other card games (and free methods of playing Magic) to fill the space for people who want tighter gameplay unbeholden to the whims of secondary markets and merchants. You can't tell me you'd seriously prefer Legacy to wither away and vanish entirely than to have it played by people who don't have$3,000 of spending money for cardboard. I'll keep saying this: people are scared of Legacy because it's a high skill format where a single turn can mean being Wastelanded out of the game. Anyone scared of stuff like that will stick to Modern and Limited.

While casualization and a low barrier to entry may make it easier for them to get in the door, the problem starts at the source. MtG's fall started with WotC doing things like pulling cards and capitulating to claims that certain art was 'rapey' and glorifying cheaters and shitty players because they happened to be female. Now WotC jumps at the opportunity to put rainbow flags on everything and march in pride parades while handing out lifetime bans for wrongthink and twitter drama.

The former is in the hobby because they like it, the latter only to signal. It goes without saying that the more obscure and autistic the given scene is, the less your chances are for SJW corruption. In regards to MTG though, the battle is already lost when you have SJW fags and kikes on the top who will always try to maximize profit while shilling their degenerate mantras. The only real way to gatekeep is to make sure it's too obscure or unremarkable to be popular in the first place.

The entire theme of the game changed completely so it was only natural the rules would follow suit. It's stayed largely the same since 3d ed, and it's from there you'll really notice the massive streamlining 8th got into, with a ton of tactical depth and options disappearing. And it's not just the rules, the models have become shittier too, with a reliance on monopose kits with very few options and a bloat of clampack "characters". Not only does this mean they can turn up the prices for much simpler kits, but together with the simple rules it makes it far too easy for casuals to just throw a random jumble of models on the table with zero thought to listbuilding or planning. It's not as bad in this as Smegmar, but I suspect they'll do what they can to push it along.

Lets say you played "Monsters" or whatever by placing a card down. That's 26 options. Now let's say you needed two cards - that's what, 650 options? Just with half of the deck? The combination possibilities just get higher when you assume, say, playing three or even four cards, or when including the ability to choose how many are played. Then you can include the factor of is the card horizontal or vertical, so you could have "Sideways King of Hearts" and "Forward King of Hearts" or whatever. I don't know. It seems like it could have potential. It wouldn't be a big money maker, but imagine if you could get a system like that to become widespread? You could always publish special decks to go with it, having custom art or whatever, or collectible cards for side-use (i.e. play a "3 of Hearts" and a "5 of Hearts" which indicates "Manticore", and then just put your "Manticore" card on top to look cool/like a tool), but with the caveat that the game would always allow players to go in with just normal cards.

In some areas, background checks don't cost anything, if I recall correctly, but even on the high end, it's like 20 dollarydoos.

They would make fun of them in every way possible but did it in a novel and interesting way like John Major being so boring all he ate for dinner was peas and all his sketches were grey. They made them into comedy characters to play with without getting into politics it's self. Politicians used to want to be mocked in this way because it meant they were now important enough for people to care. It was considered the day you "made it" in politics to be on Spitting image.

Ultimately, it's ignorance or an unwillingness to approach conflicting viewpoints that causes this.

WotC deserves to lose their sales and their customerbase for doing such things because it's actively damaging towards society. On the lighter end of the spectrum, you have some designers who do not promote or even follow the more extreme aspects of the cancerous ideologies, but still lean more left than anything else. Their products and their company are devoid of the usual diversity and inclusivity rhetoric and any political opinions they voice are done in private. Wanting to treat all minor transgressions of opinion as if they were on the same level of WotC's behavior, or worse, is moronic. Cancer should not be supported in any way and players should be encouraged to drop and boycott companies who promote such dangerous ideologies and organizations.

You should get that checked out. >>357578 >on one hand, actually trying to engage without cover of every buzzword under the sun >on the other, muh accelerationism again I call /pol/ pranksters because that's definitively what they're good at. I've seen what happens when some /pol/acks try to grill an actual Jew, for instance, and got second-hand embarrassment from how easy it was to counter them. You guys work a lot better when, as you say, you make it fun. "Prankster" wasn't an insult on my part, but an assessment of your capabilities. HWNDU and IOTBW were examples of effective /pol/ ops that were also gutbustingly funny, bringing out the ideas that we're just a bunch of fun-loving (if scarily determined and autistic in said fun) goofballs and that the Left is insane respectively. That's /pol/ (both of them, let's not pretend that Halfchan's various contingents aren't our muscle) at its most effective. It's when you try to parley that into authority or credit on here that it gets aggravating. Don't act all solemn and grandiloquent, roar about future battles and conquests, and then balk when someone expects you to be committed. It looks annoyingly inconsistent. Also, where is this "military arm" you speak of? I don't think even white nationalists particularly want killing, or are willing to massacre their rivals. They just want whites to be left in peace, as far as I can tell. Throughout the Anglosphere, things are still much too civil for a "Day of the Rope" to ever happen. People here simply don't hate each other enough for that. And honestly, it wouldn't happen towards groups that have naturalized enough. Mostly it'd be muslims and antifa that gets any violence, and various coloreds who wisely keep quiet will be left alone. Also, just remembered: half of /pol/ isn't even white. Some are even jewish. Thus, I doubt you'll want friendly fire, so to speak. >accelerationism Back to this for a moment: If you want the anarchy that comes from collapsing governments, do you expect to live through it? If you don't, that's perfectly fine and reasonable. You have my unreserved respect. If you do, are you prepared? Because I doubt most of you save maybe /polk/, need to drop in thereare, and in that case the bravado looks foolish. As an off-topic aside… >Jews The best 8chan conversation I've ever had on this subject was on /tv/ of all places, where some anon convinced me with patient dialogue and reasonable scientific documents that the Holocaust wasn't wholly what the history books said it was. More of the "internment camps" concept which went terribly wrong in places. A similar conversation has yet to happen regarding the supposed universal calumny of Jews outside the second half of the 20th century. Sephardim I'm convinced were thugs in the 19th and early 20th centuries, but all I'm seeing from Ashkenazi is excessive paranoia and persecution complexes. I'm not really sure where to ask about this, seeing as I'd shouted out of /pol/ for even appearing to doubt it. >>357600 On the contrary, our enemies don't want to kill us. They want us to kneel and obey, to be their willing minions, and to beg them for forgiveness. They want to humiliate and break us while they gloat. A series of martyrs is the last thing they want. It's not a cowed and listening audience, its a threat. No.357680 >>357673 You needed someone on /tg/ to teach you about the history of warfare and propaganda? Every nation until the last 50 years would put any ethnic group they were fighting in camps. It was standard practice to do so if you conquered them or if you were fighting them away from home. Every nation did this because it only takes a handful to completely fuck up your war operation. The option was to GTFO or to go live in a camp until the war is over. I don't know how you think you're worth listening to when you miss the most basic piece of history that disproves the holocaust being some exceptionally evil scheme rather than standard practice on both sides of the fence (no pun intended). Your enemies will lie and cheat. If you lose then they will never stop lying or cheating you. As for the "muh accelerationism", I would suggest you look at the state of the Europe and the UK especially. The NHS is the sacred cow that's got rabies, aids and cancer right now. It's dying and there is nothing they can do about it. They just demand more and more money and it's never enough. The staff can barely speak English any more and yet it continues to be the "number 1 issue". The collapse isn't a 1 day boom, it's the system failing over multiple fronts. Those fronts are starting to collapse as we speak. You have no idea what you're talking about but want to stroke your own ego. I've met hundreds of people like you in the tabletop community. You're just smart enough to know how to roll some dice so you think you're the hot shit genius who can lecture the world. But everyone knows you're just king retard wrangling the other retards with his crown from burger king. You can tell this from the last sentence where the Muslim invasion of Europe is entirely pushed by Jews. You know the people literally slaughtering white people in the name of Jihad.

This happens with every community that has rep points/upvotes/karma, you have to say the right things or you're branded a troll. If you're a troll, you're excommunicated and the mods will pull the ban trigger easier on you. This implants an attitude of submission and abuses the need to fit in. If you ever say the wrong thing once six years ago on the same account, it can and will be brought up against you as an argument as to why you're wrong.

Reddit isn't really news, but the Facebook comments relating to the store's announcement have been morbidly interesting. It's fascinating to see the different faces people put on when actually playing Magic, when accusing counterfeiters of killing the game, and when discussing how pedophilia charges are fine in retrospect because the guy who brought them up was an internet troll. They can't seem to make up their minds as to whether he is a no-name nobody with no influence or a scary alt-right/Russian hacker with hundreds of thousands of, gasp, Twitter followers!

A big tell is shit like "don't be an asshole." You'll notice them using "asshole," "dick," and douchebag a lot. You could draw parallels to soyboy, nu-male, etc., but those terms have some clear definition to them. Asshole, dick and douchebag don't really have a set definition to them. And if you ask them for a definition, they'll have a canned response, "if you have to ask what one is, you are one rofl XD." There's no real talking to them when they've called you that because in their mind, you're their enemy. There's no coming back from asshole/dick/douchebag, you're excommunicated. At least when we use "soyboy," there's potential for the soyboy to not be a faggot. It's not a complete shutdown tactic, unlike asshole/dick/douchebag. For now, we'll also ignore that those insults wore their power in middle school for most people and that an actual adult would just use the word "jerk."

So I was milling around and the first jewgle result of "don't be a dick" is from Wil Wheaton in 2007. No wonder I instantly detested it. It's pure passive aggressive bullshit.

And to add on top of the reddit = cult angle, redditors (goons/imgurians/tumblrinas/leftists are included) love to use the term "decent people." Something odd to me is that it's always used in terms of leftist policies. "Just be a decent person and support universal health care!" "Just be a decent person and let these brown people in." Remember, a key part of the cult conditioning is the hammering in that you're better/more enlightened/more intelligent/more spiritual than normal people which drives you from the society as a whole. You see this reflected with how they talk. Always talking down to you. Right now, I'm in front of you, dropping information and awareness. But a redditor speaks from on high. It's hard to articulate the differences when someone is talking down at you compared to talking at you as an equal. I think it's mainly the verbiage used, less technical terms used, more passive voice. Sarcasm as well, that's the calling card of a psuedo-intellectual.

Let's return back to the splitting from society thing. Mainly the "you're just fucking better part." Cults will bring up how awesome you are, while simultaneously putting you down as not good enough. We use the term "doublethink" to describe this seemingly contradictory position. "You better than everyone else also you suck. Here's how to improve yourself." Constant denigration followed by a carrot on a stick approach. This is how the cult operates. (Of course, /pol/ will use the same tactics. This is how you spot a shill, they use the same carrot on a stick approach. Beware those telling you how to live your life, self-improvement is something you chose to do, not something sold to you. Strength comes to the strong, and truth does not need to be browbeaten into you.) The end result is a mindless/useful idiot who is only good to parrot what his superiors tell him. The carrot on a stick approach works best with the insecure and weak willed. Hence why you'll get STEM dudes that are stupidly liberal, because they had some sort of insecurity that the cult manipulated. Liberalism is not for the intelligent, but to the weak-willed.

And notice, "decent." Not "Good." Not "great." "Decent." Middle of the road. Alright. Okay. The cult does not want you to be a good person, because the cult did away with the notions of good and evil and replaced it with post-modernist humanism. The cult wants you to be decent, to never shoot above. Because if you're not complacent and have some sort of ambition, you don't last long in cults. The cult wants you to be a decent person, not good, not great. Just average. Perfectly okay with being average because you're a decent person. Cultists won't even notice the wool has been pulled over their eyes because they have been effectively demoralized. They don't know the wool is over their eyes because they've been programmed to think that the wool is good and their only world.

sage for wildly off topic.

This is the final update on my LGS stopping MTG events, since the second announcement did not generate the same kind of bad publicity the first one did, and thus there is less to report. I know this almost crosses the line into blogposting, but some other anons were discussing what it would look like when a store owner protested the background check changes. Well, here it is for posterity: https://archive.fo/B7YfE | https://archive.fo/Hv1SE

I can't believe I ever respected this dipshit. It baffles me how somebody can work 18hr days for months in the Northwest Territories and the Yukon, for the express purpose of collecting isolation pay and hazard pay to start a business, and then say things like "a convicted pedophile being in a position of authority at an event with children is zero evidence of wrongdoing" and "nothing happened in 25 years of Magic, so obviously this policy would not have stopped anything." Yeah, faggot, the absence of policy or a problem reporting method means there's no problem, obviously.

He had four fucking days to write a followup statement and not once did he happen upon either NicheGamer article. I'll give him not wanting to browse through the Twitter profile of an alt-lite shock jock, but the future of a self-owned business demands more action than talking to judge on Facebook.

At least I traded in my cards for store credit before all this happened. I would have liked to believe that not every single person who played Magic in this city was a cumguzzling faggot, but even the casual EDH players at the university club are mostly nu-males; there was even a tranny

And yet again.. It hasn't even been that long, but the reason the guy who got banned was even villified and known was because of baseless accusations and spiteful faggotry. He didn't break any rules and didn't even do any of the things they said he did, but WotC went and changed it's policies and started handing out some lifetime bans.
