The more mainstream and well known a site is, the more likely it is that it will attract normalfags, retards, and subhumans. All three of those categories have an obnoxious habit of trying to assert themselves as visible and important parts of any community they force their way into, because they crave validation and approval. Plus you've got the law of averages working against you. Bigger crowd, bigger community, greater likelihood of pozzed shitters cropping up.

short version: If you want a game that's got a large, strong community of players backing it, you're going to run into poz.


 No.406378

Well, OP, I am sorry to say but any community that doesn't take an outright hostile attitude to leftists will, over time, itself become leftist due to them infiltrating. If you want a pozz-free game, you'd need to either find something so obscure to go under the radar, or something that actively hates all this SJW shit, but good luck finding that.

This is unfortunately true. Remember the general rule, the easier it is to find players the shittier the game. In an ideal world every fa/tg/uy would have his own personal group of gamers at his own personal level of autism to engage in the wonders (and terrors) of homebrew games, but most of us won't get that.

I'll shill here for a bit. I like stuff that Ganesha Games has produced. It's basically one guy doing everything, with his wife helping the business. He's made a bunch of small Skirmish Wargames that try and maintain a focus on /yourdudes/ and allow you to use any miniature so long as it fits in the genre. Advanced Songs of Blades and Heroes is his most expansive, it's basically generic fantasy, with supplements for various off-fantasy staples like blackpowder firearms, steampunk, etc.

I was thinking of doing something with Vassal/Tabletop Sim involving these games since they're pretty accessible.

>Isn't MYFAROG mechanically tedious?

Bought a copy of the book shortly after release, because I wanted to see what had caused so much furore more than anything else. Ran a few test scenarios while considering introducing it my group, and fucking hell! It's almost like the game was designed by a guy whose skills are only relevant on a stage and who cared more about 'muh message' than the game.

MYFAROG is basically 'just another fantasy heartbreaker' but with an elevated chance of triggering normies. That's all it's good for.


 No.406847

Pretty much. It's just 2E with more tables, less fun, and a mediocre Anglo-supremacist setting. The only reason it got any attention at all was because a retard kept shitting up 4cuck threads right up until someone bought the damn thing and made a PDF of it.

By comparison, the retroclones(and all other RPGS in general) that are more noteworthy tend to be labors of love done by people who show a genuine passion for the game.

>anon customizes his avatar so everyone knows he's into bestiality

Don't ignore the warnings.

Tabletop types tend to be geekier sorts so it's a community categorically filled with more weirdos than the general population. Remember, jews have been involved since they bankrupted Gigax's company.

Most tabletop settings have degrees of poison. Hatred's pretty pure and cool: wargame in a primitive setting reminiscent of Conan.

Degenesis has my favorite setting overall EXCEPT for the niggers who you have to disregard to keep the fluff from beggaring belief..

Yes Sigmar is bringing Space Marines and Ork armor into fantasy,

Yes it's copying MtG with its' relams

Yes it has a dyke-haired chick as the poster-woman for the Sigmarines

but its' lore and setting is still more original and interesting on net than the original Fantasy setting.

The original WHFB setting was pretty unique and interesting; in fact, it's the only flintlock fantasy setting that I know of.


 No.406885

>>406876

Certainly had a lot more charm than Smegmar. WHFB was incredibly generic on the surface, but look even slightly deeper and it had a lot of charm and flavor that you really wouldn't see elsewhere. Can you name any other settings where Dwarves are stubborning themselves to extinction by constantly getting into wars to avenge the dead of previous wars or where they'll do things like wipe out your entire family because you shortchanged them as the result of an accounting error or declare war on a mountain because a lot of Dwarves died to a cave in? How many other settings are there where one race has a huge portion of its population wiped out by a meteor so they take to worshiping the crater out of a combination of awe and fear? It didn't always show on the surface, but there was some pretty good shit there.


 No.406886

I'm pretty sure the only people who consider WHFB generic are people who've only seen the name and one or two models and have no idea what the setting is beyond "not 40k".

>anytime a matter of romantic interest or sexual attraction comes up, they practically trip over themselves to make their characters gay

>Whenever someone tries to play their character as someone who doesn't automatically show spineless deference and worship to female characters, like asking if a female NPC is hot or not, the GM audibly recoils and and awkwardly tries to smooth over the situation.

>after a certain point, the guy running it starts appending "calls to action" to the end of every episode, demanding that his listeners whine about the "racist" border wall and other recent political happenings

>years of doing this has spawned dozens of other podcasts in their network, including two psychologists applying their pseudo-intellectual bullshit to RPGs while constantly going on about how queer they and their players are.

On the one hand, it's frustrating to get smacked in the face with this bullshit, because I just want something to occupy a portion of my attention while I do my boring ass job. On the other, it's morbidly fascinating to revisit these old episodes and listen as the team behind this show steadily disappear farther up their own asses as the poz takes hold of their sanity. You can clearly mark the exact moments when the sane, hobby-focused part of their brains disengage, and the rotten lefty cancer part of their brain takes over and makes them panic and rush to virtue signal.

What's also interesting is that it's allowed me to come to understand the podcast racket a little better as well. They have on a lot of guests who also run their own podcasts, in many cases, they have several. The way it works is that these faggots rush to find as many quirky niches as possible and make that into podcasts, which they use to constantly e-beg for donations, and through clique-ish tactics, "professional" podcasts constantly cross-promote by inviting other podcasters onto each others shows where they shill themselves, which is meant to bring in more patreon donations. What surprised me was just how flimsy some of the topics they turn into podcasts can be. Literally shit like "we watch every episode of Sailor Moon and recount it as a podcast each week" and then replace Sailor Moon with just about any other ironic weeb series, or some ironic hipster shit like the Saban Power Rangers.

It's the overall incestuous and clique-driven nature of these shows that makes me worry a lot less. Unlike that other spaz, I don't believe cancerous, pozzed podcasts are as much of a problem as they appear to be. Even some of the biggest ones are scraping together a few thousand fans and a couple thousand views/downloads/whatever. Furthermore, the kind of people who rush to throw shekels at these faggots are a lot like the other jackasses out there who throw hundreds of dollars at feminist bloggers who claim that they are professional academic writers doing important essays about how Disney movies. It's not hardcore fans of the hobby being corrupted. It's pitiful hipster faggots looking for a parasocial relationship freely giving up their money to other hipster faggots. The kind of power they wield in the grand scheme of things is pretty meager. The world could still do without that extra ounce of marxist ideological AIDS, but the ultimate goal of these shows is to promote them more to give the faggots responsible for them more money, which mostly just means they'll make more shows for their audience, which is really just a few thousand people at best.

Shadowrun's authors intimate they know the real politics of the world by describing a committee, headed by the leaders of each major bank, which determines international finance named ZOG.

I'm sure we can go on endlessly with examples of kosher propaganda in tabletop games. Here are some examples

Numenera - A setting where blondes don't exist. You can have anime-style blue, green or other inhuman colors and be all kinds of a special snowflake but the fairest hair has been genocided out of existence.

Eclipse Phase - The magic of nanomachines makes, "post-scarcity" economic gibberish like anarcho-communist communes functional.

There were good elements to the previous warhammer fantasy setting. I'm not dumping on it all. Some of my personal favorites were

1. One of the Skaven's potential origins* being a curse on an Empire town, drawing from real-world Black Plague era folklore about dead peasants returning as rats to revenge themselves on the wicked.

2. The Lizardmen as a mashup of Aztecs, Mormons, Great Old Ones, pre-human saurian empires as depicted in King Kull and other 1800s-science-inspired authors.

WF was more original at its' inception but has become blander relative to what's available. Moorcock's theme of Order vs Chaos has become a staple of many settings, like TES, warhammer influenced many other settings, from Warcraft to Dragon Age's Fade (Immaterium).

Making the setting less mundane, like Holy Roman Empire vs vikings, and more fantastic, with each faction living in some alternate dimension with its' own rules, is cool.

The biggest failing I see is not representing such fluff in game mechanics. You could have different mechanics for each realm to give games more variety. Lacking such content, the story and crunch are divorced.

*I know this story's non-canon in-setting because the Skaven fought Lizardmen back in the day.

I think the problem is that most people who want to get into podcasting are probably already a little pozzed. It's not a matter of seeking popularity by pandering to SJW shit, either. It's more likely than not that they were kool-aid swilling retards to begin with, but as the times changed the way they did, they became more motivated to stop hiding their poz power level, or they simply got dragged deeper. The SJW mindset is quicksand, after all. You either delve deeper and start chanting with the rest of the hipster faggots, or you get excommunicated for being problematic.

It's pretty easy to forget that SJWs used to be less intense 5 years ago than they are today. With One Shot, I think it was more likely that as they built up fame, largely by circlejerking with other podcasters, they attracted the core audience of many of these other hipster faggot podcasts... Hipster faggots.

I saw something similar happen to this one internet e-celeb who talked about video games. Most of his non-pozzed stuff has been deleted from Tumblr now, so I'll take this chance to tell the story and remind you all what social media does to people.

>2013

>Before gamergate got big, one guy realized how stupid journo bloggers were and started a tumblr blog called loltaku where he catalogued the hypocrisy and hack writing that plagued video game journalism

>this consisted mostly of him browsing Kotaku and Polygon for half a hour over lunch, then posting the dumb shit he found

>notable examples of dumb shit include:

<mike fahey, a writer who reviewed shitty processed gamer food and wrote tonnes of articles about LE WACKY JAPAN

<one writer complaining about sexualization of women characters in video games despite having a tattoo of Etna from Disgaea on his leg

<many writers being bribed in manners identical to payola, and then giving the game companies who bribed them great scores

Old news to anyone who's looked at this industry for more than a few years, but it was funny to see compilations of this every few days.

>eventually he branches out into gaming news in general, and highlights/corrects many articles and coverage of (((controversies))), although sadly he never wised up to who was manufacturing it

>identifies many trends in the industry, like incomplete games, outrage marketing, etc. and provides succinct, accurate criticism of precisely why they are harmful

>this continues for about a year, and he makes a twitter account to cross-promote or whatever

>this means a lot more stream-of-consciousness posts and pidgin meme speak because Twitter rots your brain

>I learn he is apparently a contractor and does blue collar work, and uses video games/anime as a hobby to relax

>eventually he starts up a personal Tumblr blog to shitpost about video games and e-celebs

>axes loltaku, which is immediately taken over by a bot and purged of everything it had built up over two years

>starts using his personal Twitter and Tumblr to promote the games his e-celeb friends make, like this one guy making an ironic visual novel dating sim with monstergirls

>>starts shitposting about feminine penis

>>>someone asks him why he's doing this and he gets all defensive, saying "If all the pictures of men characters I post didn't clue you in, I'm bisexual, kiddo"

>outed as a furry shortly therafter, with a sparklefaggot shark boy OC

>buys a $600 gamer chair

>starts recording voice segments where he "just talks about whatever subject I feel like" for a few minutes at a time

>his video game discussion progressively becomes diluted with progressive garbage and memes

>>so many fucking memes about posting the wrong pornography to a Discord channel, or posting in the wrong Discord, or receiving Discord notifications for no reason, or something equally degenerate

>>>I get to see his brain rot as he goes from someone who once made long, quality posts with evidence and sources to someone who never uses punctuation or the shift key on Twitter, and who is never away from Twitter for more than a day

>"you know i almost stopped using Twitter until I just blocked everything I disagreed with and surrounded myself with stuff I liked, and now the platform is much friendlier"

>one day I see him retweet a political article which outlines one of the many problems with food stamps in the United States: apparently food stamps can be used to buy candy and other unhealthy food, which enables many people niggers to subsist on garbage while unemployed and still afford their iPhones

>>"lmao how could you ever care about what people want to eat, don't you have better things to do than ensure The Poors™ don't touch their lips to a can of Dr Pepper??????"

<close the window and stop looking at his profiles

I popped my head in a few months ago and he's become one of the soylent masses who talk about anime and video games. His Twitter profile picture is a cartoon commission of himself, his biography is an ironic mess of words and week-old memes, and he's apparently now a podcast star with a bunch of other C-list e-celebs. Watching this happen has done more to convince me of the evils of social media than any thinkpiece any blogger ever wrote. I wish there was a way for memories to be distilled and transmitted, because anyone who finds this guy now will just think he's been this way forever, and that his behaviour is normal. I used to wonder where all these allegedly megapopular streamers and soyim came from, but now I get it - they're people who tried to do something as a hobby, got a whiff of fame, and weren't strong enough to turn their heads away from it and back to their work.

>Watching this happen has done more to convince me of the evils of social media than any thinkpiece any blogger ever wrote.

Feels like there's some sort of maddening effect tied to people who seclude themselves as e-celebs while only fulfilling the social aspect of their lives through the cancerous filter of twitter and other social media sites. They usually end up in cliques and echo-chambers. They also tend to get closer to other quasi-celebrities, which tends to have a pretty big influence on them when combined with the guilt-motivated nature of SJW thinking.

<this person I admire because they are more famous than me is constantly throwing a tantrum on social media and using their platform as a semi-popular podcaster to inform people about politics!

<I should do the same!

<It's my responsibility after all!

One is done of a love of the game (thus the minimal change except occassionally to get rid of Thaco and use ascending AC and a few other 3rd edition isms) and the other is to shit on 3rd'd success because a company was dissatisfied with how pozzed 4th edition was so they made their own extra pozzed version of 3.5. There is honestly no comparison.


 No.407167

>>407157

There's also the fact how both are published. Retroclones are often published for free and there's usually a fancier version of the game that you can buy but you don't need to.

Pozzfinder just sells a worse version of a broken game at full price.

I hate to do this, because Paizo is really one of the worst things to happen to the hobby in terms of game design, writing, and art, but since Pathfinder is an OGL game, most if not all of its content is available for free on SRD sites. The only thing you miss out on is the formatting structure of the books themselves.

Retroclones have no love put into them anon. I can make a Retroclone right now that would have the same exact value as trash like The Black Hack, Whitehack, etc. etc. Much like you can make a homebrew version of 3.5 that is of exactly the same quality as Pozfinder. There really is no difference: both of them are copies with few, if any unique or original ideas. It's utterly derivative and soulless, trying to claim the same fire that the "Original Roleplaying Game" had. There is literally no reason to play a retroclone when you can just play the original instead.

All part of (((their))) plan.

1. Destroy all enjoyable, male/masculine, pastimes and refuges. Infiltrate through the thirsty betamale white knights. Pozz it up. Actively campaign against anyone not conforming (evil, nazi, misogynist).

2. Now you are socially isolated. Also looking at women is harassment. Approaching them and asking for a date is rape. Sometimes. How much money do you have?

3. Isolated, no refuge, you must consume (((their))) propaganda while trying to convince yourself it isn't that bad. Now you're a pozzed cuck.

Wrong. What you really need to do is find a local soyboy and suck his cock. That way you'll remove all the soy-juice-water(SJW for short) from his body. Next you should have him fuck you in the ass. It might seem a bit extreme at first but this way you'll remove the last bit of SJW from his body while increasing his testosterone level by dominating you.

If you go around stabbing fags, you'll probably only remove about a dozen at best and you'll probably get fuck up the ass anyways in prison.

However, if you follow the suck-and-fuck method you'll be able to sure hundreds!

The detractors of this hobby are not from without, but from within. Tabletop games are an incredibly hard hobby to get into: not only do you need people to play with, you need the right sort of people to play with, you need the miniatures, you need the rulebooks, you need the modules, you need the supplements and the splat books, you need the expansion packs and then, for every new edition, you need to go and buy all this again. The people who have been ruining this hobby are the sort who got into it when it was easier to get into, back when one couldn't get as enjoyable of an experience by going onto their computer, installing a game and playing it. Video games really are why this hobby has become a cesspit: video games provide a better, cheaper and more convenient experience overall in comparison to tabletop games.

The attack is within but you're being autistic. You don't need all those things when you just pick up a yugioh starter deck or a Warhammer army in a box for 50 bucks.

You don't have the power to enforce anything that would resolve the issues. You can't compete with WOTC or GW, so how do you strangle the hobby? GW has needed to die for decades now and yet it just keeps going. It keeps going eternally with no end in sight. When it was the most hated company in the industry it was still the most profitable, it still had the biggest games, and it even killed one of those games and just kept going. If you had the power killing GW and WOTC would be the first thing to do but you can't. Tabletop games will kill themselves through computer gaming. The hobby divides into an art form of modellers and board gamers wanting an excuse to meet up and be social with each other. The later half is the SJW influence now. They don't care about Munchkin or settlers, it just gives them an excuse to meet up and drink. The SJWs use game dev for exactly the same reason.

I find myself grappling with a lot of conflicting ideas on how to handle and approach the problems we're seeing in the hobby, and I still don't think there's an easy solution that will feel like the kind of victory some of us want. In a lot of ways, going after the WotC's and GW's of the hobby is like going after Hollywood, which is to say, it appears that there's little chance that they will ever be good or set straight ever again, because they were shit from the start. Cancer to their cores and marred by a history of rotten employees and poor business decisions. WotC, for what it's worth, wasn't even responsible for D&D's creation. They just bought it, and in a lot of ways, they are even worse than TSR was under Lorraine Williams.

There's the argument that something needs to be done to tend to the long-term health of the hobby, as rampant casualization and pozzing will means bad things for the small industry that surrounds tabletop gaming. I can see what people are getting at when they say these kinds of things. Shitty games and poor design philosophy that prioritizes political virtue signalling (like Cards Against Humanity, for instance) only poisons the communities, the tournaments, conventions, and eventually hits game stores. Hypothetically, this means that sooner or later the player pool for certain games and systems will dry up and you'll be left with the choice to either stop playing, or adapt to the cancerous ways of the newfags raised on shitty games that disguise lazy game design as "narrative focus"

On the other hand, the mass market and normalfags have always had shit taste and poor self-control. The best thing most people get from gaming stores are THAT GUY stories and tales of disastrously run campaigns where dipshits ruin games. They almost seem to purposefully gather around bad games. 5e was insultingly dumbed down and utterly bereft of content at launch, and it still sold incredibly well even though it took them years to release any kind of splatbooks or eratta. Much like the Hollywood comparison, normalfags, the average fan or hobbyist, are potentially beyond saving, but even if you could, you wouldn't want them anyways. It's like... Getting a Beyonce fan to listen to some other music. Getting a Fortnite addict to try playing Quake. No matter what you do, chances are they'll remain awful. The big reason to try is because of the slim chance that you can elevate a few people out of normalfag status and make them realize that there are better games out there.

Not sure where I'm going with this. I suppose my feelings on the matter of 'saving' the /tg/ industry is that the biggest parts aren't worth saving and that normalfags will always be a problem for one reason or another. I don't think we'll ever see a complete collapse of the hobby. It's only getting easier, cheaper, and more accessible to produce games. Used to be that publishing and distribution were gated behind hurdles that an amateur would have to struggle to overcome. Now you can shit out a homebrew game and have it available on various print on demand sites or distributed at no cost to yourself. That sort of thing isn't going to get harder. I don't think we'll ever see the hobby truly die or go away. There's always going to be a dedicated autist who wants to share their dream game with others. To that end, I'd say the true tragedy of the current era is that discoverability is utterly awful. Forming close-knit communities of like-minded hobbyists has become tricky because subversion and infiltration have become more common as internet usage has become more ubiquitous.

Independent creators are driven out by big companies, while big companies inevitably follow the path of least resistance - which mandates force-feeding people low-effort shit mixed with propaganda (as it is the most profitable strategy). That is the root of the problem.

The only realistic way to stop this conclusively is to subject industry to the actual desires of consumers - by making CEOs directly responsible to consumers who would act as an organized group (as opposed to acting like a bunch of whiny faggots). And such an arrangement would be called communism (today everything is communism; even GOP is "Soviet party").

>by making CEOs directly responsible to consumers

That's retarded and you know it. Half the problem is that the average consumer doesn't know what's best for them, which is why these companies get away with producing dog turds wrapped in poz. Placing artistic control in the hands of the masses is exactly the same problem as whoring it out to big business, you're just replacing "profit" with "public approval", which is already close enough to profit anyway.

You seem to be working on the assumption that the majority of consumers are against what basically every large business has been doing to tabletop gaming, and you're wrong, sadly. Appealing to the lowest common denominator is good business sense, and enough people are at least willing to put up with hard leftist propaganda that putting it in only helps their profits. They're replacing the core of their consumer base with blue-haired soygolems because it's a lot easier to put in bullshit about transgender kobolds and Nigerian techpriests than it is to make good games.

Fundamentally, as a consumer group, genuine fans of tabletop gaming have very little power to change that, but tying your company's future to the success of a cult has never been a good business strategy anyway. This whole social justice fad will die one way or another, and shitty companies will die with it. All we have to do in the meantime is refuse to purchase their products, and call out poz at the table, the same way you'd call out any other magical realm shit.

The whole "social justice thing" will not die out because it's not a cult. It's a political revolution based on a formerly dominant group becoming toothless in it's lands. Whites no longer hold any power in white ethnic homelands, that gave it all away to sand people, jungle people and whatever other group of non-whites your country is currently being invaded by.

When a society builds it's funeral pyre it doesn't get to decide what happens to the ashes. The pyre has been built, now it's lit and it's just a matter of everything falling apart and turning to ash. This isn't a passing storm, it's the first signs of a cultural take over. What comes out the other side will in no way look like what we had before the cultural suicide of the western nations. Look at the Greeks, The Romans, The Aztecs and then the modern locations.

Social justice as a concept is inherently self-destructive. It exists only through white people, and its stated goal is to destroy white people.

Even if white civilisation is completely destroyed, someone's going to sell dice games in the ashes, and it won't have self-righteous trannies telling you why you're a bad person for not respecting xeir pronouns. Nature will reassert itself under a different banner, and maybe somewhere along the way you'll be able to pretend you're slaying dragons with your friends.

Most of the idea of Samurai being anything more than professional warriors was created in the Edo period, when the land was at peace, or after they ceased to exist. There's a good amount of evidence that lots of samurai of fallen lords or otherwise disgraces decided to leave the country instead suicide.

In 1623 during a violent trade dispute between the British and Dutch in what is now Indonesia the Dutch had several ronin employed as mercenaries. Given most of them wouldn't have left Asia and the best records of this time are European, which followed Europeans most of the time, it's quite likely these weren't the only guys who decided to do it.

Based on attempts to splinter grassroot movements in 70s through identity politics: in France Arabs from Algiers were taught how they are different from white Frenchmen, have different things they need, and should not join their trade unions (which is how Arabs got pushed out of high education and high-paying jobs); in US it was women who were taught the same (which is how US is one of the few nations where constitution doesn't say that men and women have equal rights).

>Hence, the solution [...]

Independent consumer reviews have been around for a long time, and are easily accessible pretty much everywhere. Not all reviews are completely independent, of course, and there's a lot of bribe money that gets thrown around, but if you want to start a discussion on Ethics in Tabletop Games Journalism™, be my guest. Fundamentally, the propaganda in tabletop games at the minute is following the cultural shift. Even reviewers who are independent of the companies can't criticise it because calling out tranny propaganda is a social death sentence. 'Organising' them wouldn't work unless being organised made them immune to being called racist.

>It isn't and I see no reason why you would think this.

It's close enough because public approval brings profit. The more people who like your game, the more money you make. Lots of people like D&D5e, they get lots of money. Not many people like GURPS4e, they don't get as much money. Unless you're of the opinion that the vast majority of people who buy D&D books and accessories actually can't stand the game, which is just wrong.

It is possible that they would like other games more if they tried them, but they might not. Should people be more proactive when choosing an RPG to buy and not just default to D&D? Yes. But that's just human nature, and it won't be changed by some RPG equivalent of 'Which?' magazine.

>Not everything you disagree with is communism

'Hard left' here refers to socially progressive propaganda, which is all that I talked about in my post. As much as certain games like to play up post-scarcity communism, I don't know if their editors will let them preface every book with 'steal this Monster Manual'.

>Arabs were taught how they were different from white Frenchmen

Alright, I think you've had too much /leftypol/ to drink. The various apartheid and pseudo-apartheid systems across the globe as cultures started meeting in large numbers were a desperate attempt to maintain the safety and security that racially homogenous societies bring, for all parties involved. Black people are far better off taught by other black people, for the same reason that genius researchers often make absolutely terrible lecturers: you need to be working on the same mental level as somebody to teach them properly, whether you're teaching them astrophysics, bricklaying, or basic citizenship. This applies to pretty much all peoples around the globe. Saddam Hussein could hold Iraq in check because he understood that the people there needed to be ruled with an iron fist. Trying to force the Middle East to accept Western liberal democracy has resulted in nothing but thousands of deaths and yet more refugees eroding Western civilisation from inside.

Pretending that all races - and both sexes - work on the same level is the core of social justice, and why Western politics is imploding. Look in the mirror, anon. You were the SJW all along.

> Fundamentally, the propaganda in tabletop games at the minute is following the cultural shift.

The type of propaganda depends on culture. But the role of propaganda (i.e. substituting actual game design with politically correct message - as is the current trend) depends on production model.

However fanatical consumers are, they still want quality goods. They will not willingly choose to eat shit just because they strongly believe in something unrelated. But they will get shit because the job of CEOs is to cut the costs so as to deliver more money to shareholders.

> Even reviewers who are independent of the companies can't criticise it because calling out tranny propaganda is a social death sentence.

If that is your only objection, you need to think harder: calling out bad quality is not "social death sentence", but no business is going to actually listen if you do it.

> It's close enough because public approval brings profit.

Not in the discussed context.

You are basically claiming that shareholders can't order CEOs to do anything, because CEOs are controlling them through public opinion. But power of ownership and the one of public opinion are quite different things. One is much stronger than the other.

> some RPG equivalent of 'Which?' magazine.

What part of "organized" did your brain failed to grok?

> 'Hard left' here refers to socially progressive propaganda, which

Which is retarded. "Hard left" always referred to movements that advocated forceful seizure of power to enact specific economic polices, rather than trying to negotiate them.

American problems with toilets (or whatever degenerate bullshit mass-media is feeding general public right now) have nothing to do with it.

> maintain the safety and security that racially homogenous societies bring, for all parties involved.

The word is "ghetto", they don't, and what does it have to do with anything?

Your virtue-signalling is practically stroboscopic, I can't get your point (if you even have one).

> Black people are far better off taught by other black people

And here I thought that there is a difference between being taught physics/chemistry and being taught radical islam, but you had enlightened me, anon. It is the race of the pupil that actually matters, not what is being taught.

> Saddam Hussein could hold Iraq in check because he understood that the people there needed to be ruled with an iron fist. Trying to force the Middle East to accept Western liberal democracy

So it's not inept kleptocratic regime made out of people amenable to demands of corporations, nor fanatics propped up by Saudis that made Iraq a mess? Americans simply didn't shoot enough people!

I learn something new every day.

> Pretending that all races - and both sexes - work on the same level is the core of social justice

I'm pretty sure IdPol (actual basis of "Social Justice") claims exactly the opposite.

> why Western politics is imploding.

Because the money had run out, that's why.

The mainstream political thought was that the history is over (Fukuyama) and the age of liberal prosperity is upon us. Except now all the money had suddenly vanished (who knew rich would act like selfish fucks, eh?), masses want solution, and the only solution left on the table is the one from 1930s ("heat up the ovens"). And that's why shills are running in circles like headless chickens, hoping that if everyone starts fighting against conservative values it will be possible to avoid re-enactment of WW2. And the more desperate people become, the louder shills scream.

So, if I'm understanding you correctly, you believe that all companies should be subject to the whims of the demands and desires of the consumer market and subject to some kind presumably government enforced punishment when they fail? Understanding you seems to be a problem because english may not be your first language.

The first issue I see with this reasoning is that there is no such thing as a perfect product that will universally please all people. It's the "no perfect pasta sauce, only perfect pasta sauces" problem that marketers trip over constantly. You can make different varieties of things that please different people based on their tastes and preferences, but in nearly all cases you can't make one product that is universally liked. This is one of Communism's major ideological failings: It doesn't understand that people are not a monolithic hivemind. The idea of a united proletariat class is as moronic as believing that more government can make things run better and cheaper.

Things get more complicated with RPGs which foster a lot of brand loyalty and wield a lot of power because they have been cemented into pop culture and the collective consciousness of the public. D&D, for example, has been coasting on the fame of the earlier editions ever since WotC gave us 3rd edition after they bought up the rights. In it's current incarnation, it's a simpler, more dumbed down and normalfag friendly game than it's been in the past. Thanks to a combination brand recognition, a shift toward "le nerdy XD" hobbies becoming more popular, podcasts, live streams, and other variables, D&D 5e has been wildly successful, because people who wanted a simpler game are pleased, and people who wanted a new game after 4e shit the bed, and those trusted the D&D brand name, or perhaps just because they were unabashed WotC knob-slobberers, bought the game blindly. Regardless of why, none of these demographics knew that WotC would fuck up the creation and release of new splats, nor did they know that WotC employees would start waving rainbow flags and whining about neckbeards being bad for the hobby because women are a more important demo.

This leads to the second problem with communism trying to save anything through some kind of communistic seizing of control of various industries, is that the logistics don't add up at all. How exactly could a company producing roleplaying and board games be held accountable for the quality of their goods and required to fulfill the desires of an amorphous audience? Not only would there be a problem getting the input from every potential customer, but the input would be incompatible, because you cannot make something that pleases everyone. Then there's the problem of getting input and feedback on products to ensure they please this audience. Would D&D be given out for free until it reaches some mythical state of perfection where the CEOs would not be punished for slighting their consumers? Would they have to constantly reprint and sell new editions that are regularly edited to address all complaints of the organized group of consumers?

Then there's the issue of pozz and general virtue signalling SJW faggotry and propaganda. This post is already long as hell, so I'll keep this part short. People who buy into the pathological altruism of marxist ideology channeled into critical theory channeled into butter soft social sciences are fucking idiots. If they were smart, they wouldn't believe that shit and would see if for the blatant, misguided, if not outright malicious cancer that it is. Like this post ( >>407832 ) explains, you can't save someone who doesn't want to be saved. You can't unfuck a company which has cultivated and enforced a culture of pozz on themselves and their employees. You can't make kool-aid chugging trannies and antifa rioters into sane, rational citizens who can recognize blatant pandering and social engineering when it's rubbing it's circumcised dick on their faces.

(post got too long)

To wrap this up, I'm going to go ahead and presume that you're expecting some kind of solution, to which I'd still suggest simply abandoning shitty companies and supporting smaller, more authentic games. And no, these things will likely never dethrone the big companies or knock the D&D dick out of the mouths of the average trend-following normalfag. Doesn't need to, though. That was never the point. Bemoaning the defilement of sacred cows and long-running franchises is something that won't go out of style, but it won't change anything, either. Wanting to control the world and all the people in it is a foolish, childish aspiration that will just leave you angry and unsatisfied. Neither you, nor I, nor any fa/tg/uy on this board has the power to save the world from itself. However, can can save our worlds and we can do right by each other through supporting and promoting better alternatives for each other.

Maybe WotC will one day implode from it's own faggotry and various game designers will come out and say that all this tranny pandering and social justice shit was a bad idea. Maybe that won't ever happen. Won't matter, either way. As things are right now, it's easier than it's ever been for small, independent, and amateur game designers to create, publish, and distribute their games. The big guys may be able to afford all the shelf space and advertising to maintain a stranglehold on the normalfag mass appeal market, but that doesn't mean that smaller games can't flourish and succeed, exactly the way they have been for the past several years.

It isn't true that you can't make something universally appealing. Heinz Beans dominates the market for baked beans in the UK. It does it because it sticks where it's "just right". It's the goldilocks of beans where they have the perfect average recipe. Anything more salty tastes too salty, anything less is under seasoned. Tomato sauce is just rich enough and appeals to everyone. The reason no other brand can get a foot in is it's universal appeal. It's not perfect but it's good enough for 95% of people interested in it. 40k is likely the same way. It's just good enough in every area that people will go to it.

In the most recent episodes of the One Shot podcast, the guy running things announced that every episode for 2019 was going to strictly focus on games made by "marginalized" people and non-straight, non-cis, non-male designers. His rationale being that if he was going to help grow the community and make "marginalized" people feel welcome that he needed to showcase rolemodels that weren't white men. He even went on to note that he hired a sensitivity consultant to make sure they weren't being being problematic.

This is the curse of pozz. It's a mind rotting ideological disease. At no point in this obnoxious virtue signalling introduction did he talk about exposing more people to the hobby or creating opportunities for new players to experience what these games are like. He didn't talk about highlighting the best games that are going unnoticed because D&D consumes the majority of the mental shelfspace. He didn't care about promoting inventive and innovative new games from new designers or anything remotely like that. His mind was so rotted with pozz that all he cared about was pushing white men away, under the presumption that they already have some kind of magical buff that gives them all the free promotion, success, and acknowledgement they could ever need, and instead slavishly deifying shitskins, cunts, and trannies because they are the noble, downtrodden, rightful rulers of the hobby in a community which is already overflowing with rainbow flag waving retards tripping over each other to suck the most dick to prove how much white guilt they have.

This is the same exact shit we see in vidya. People who value the symbolic gesture and the ill-conceived notion that anything not straight, white, or male is inherently better, more valuable, and deserving of greater praise and promotion based strictly on it's "otherness". White guilt and fetishization of the other drive these people into a spiral of madness and when it backfires and drags everything down, they just look for more places to force it only communities and hobbies.

To be absolutely honest (I'm the one whom longpost reply was for; not the anon you reply to) - yes.

> It isn't going REEEE communism is bad

Yes, it is going "REEEE communism is bad".

Instead of discussing suggestion (consumers >>directly<< controlling RPG industry; i.e. not through market), the longpost substitutes suggestion with freshly redefined ("explained"!) Special Snowflake Communism. And then attempts to use his newly invented "communism" as a voodoo doll. It's a fucking miracle there was no mention of gulags. Oh, wait. There WAS:

>> subject to some kind presumably government enforced punishment when they fail

Note that I did not mention government, but shareholders (while clarifying the nature of control).

For some reason it is also asserted that consumers exercising control over CEOs must get only one RPG (I have no idea why):

>> The first issue I see with this reasoning is that there is no such thing as a perfect product that will universally please all people.

Why? And why the fuck are people now seriously discussing this as if it makes sense?

And my explicit (and repeated) clarifications that consumers should be organized are completely ignored because communism:

>> second problem with communism trying to save anything through some kind of communistic seizing of control of various industries, is that the logistics don't add up at all. How exactly could a company producing roleplaying and board games be held accountable for the quality of their goods and required to fulfill the desires of an amorphous audience?

All of this looked like a total meltdown (or an attempt to troll me). Which is why I decided not to answer.

Wizards of the Coast fired their photographer for pro-level MTG events such as GPs (sorry, they're called "MagicFests" now) and Pro Tours. This wouldn't be newsworthy except for his history with the company - 21 years and around 100 Pro Tours alone - and the recent lack of coverage of GP New Jersey, one of the last events to bear the title "GP." The event's top 8 competitors received nothing which players and viewers have come to expect from events of this size and prestige:

>played on normal tables with no special seating arrangements

>no camera recording the games

>no text coverage

>no photography

>the winner didn't receive a trophy (although this was due to the company shipping them being delayed)

<the only record the event even occurred is a summary of the top 8 decklists

The situation is exacerbated by WotC's recent promises to improve and increase coverage for MTG events, and to be more transparent about their plans for organized play.

Pics 2 and 3 are some ancillary entertainment from the reddit thread on the issue. I would say it's some kind of psyop on the part of guy arguing against established player bases if I didn't know everyone on that website was genuinely this stupid in the first place.

I was there Saturday playing Legacy side events all day. I don't know how they did it, but they actually got a few girls to show up this time so whatever they're trying to do here it's working having the main event be limited probably helped. Same shitty con food, same uninteresting prize wall, same vendors with cases full of the same singles as the last time. But it somehow felt different in a way that I really don't know how to describe. Can't blame cosplay, since there were only like 2 people trying. Perhaps as a sign of things to come there were like 2 or 3 booths dedicated to selling shirts with magic-related slogans or symbols on them that I wound up browsing, weighing the pros and cons of buying more cards for a deck I barely play and wondering who the fuck would wear this terrible dark gray hoodie that completely failed to compliment the green-blue gradiant Simic logo stamped on it.

Companies are free to do as they please. However, there have to be repercussions for their actions. The major issue is that a majority of the new wave of magic players are utterly retarded and will gobble up wotc's shit without a second thought. This can be generally be explained by the increased number of kids, betas*, women, and minorities. Kids will get their parents to buy the newest products for them without taking into account quality of the products. Women are there to whore themselves and are generally terrible at managing how much they spend and what they spend it on. When I say betas, I mean the men that will buy wotc's shit, because they feel compelled to. Wizards is essentially their chad and they are its bitch. When I say minorities, I mean Yugioh players and they are fucking retarded in general to have put up with Konami's bs for so long. When you add in kike investors as well, magic is just going to get worse as time goes on and mtg will continue to milk its player base at an increased rate. UMA's box toppers were obviously thrown in at the last moment to get them to sell. It worked, so expect there to be more in the future.

The only way I can see things getting better is if the alternative tcgs get more popular and are able to compete again. Yugioh and DBS will have to suck up the minorities again. Hearthstone and Pokemon will have to suck up all of the whores and kids. The betas will have to grow some balls and say no. FOW/FFTCG/Cardfight/Pokemon/ect will have to start pulling away established players, so that Hasbro is forced to put Wizards to the fire.

Who the fuck do you think was buying the game before? Betas and kids are the primary market for almost everything /tg/. They're the people who PLAY GAMES instead of having an adult life. Real men don't buy warhammer sit, if they like modeling they go for model kits and well made figurines not mass produced shitty multipose crap. D&D was mainstream in the 80s, because of CHILDREN playing it.

Yes. I am aware of your opinion. But can you explain why this would ever happen? Corporate squeeze-out is the most profitable model. Why should it be magically replaced by anything else?

The thing is, the recent round of get woke go broke has given pretty good evidence that even if the only corp model is ruthless extraction (and its not) the reality of how to do that varies. Some companies think that this social pandering is going to work in the long run (to maximize profits) some companies think that the boom bust is too matter of fact in their industry to do anything but stick it to consumers, some companies want to re-monetize ownership, paying to keep up/paid up on your subscription/DLC/skins/Lootsboxes to stay current in the game, some companies want to deliver a quality product at a profitable price that will grow a hobby of like minded people who share similar interest (haha, not really this hasn't been done since the 80).

Even if what you say is true, that every corporation's only goal is to maximize profit, the variety of corporate actions we see (from chickfila, to gillette, to warhammer, to wotc) means that the how of maximizing profit is not straight forward or simple, even very similar corporations (think fastfood burger joints) can have very different approaches and this is what people are trying to point out to you, you insufferable retard. Get Woke go broke happens, its not maximizing profits and there is basically this illogical behavior (because the company that seeks to maximizing profits is not maximizing profits) is utterly frustrating actual fans/adherents/consumers of those products. But hey your a faggot and a commie so just remember, actions can have unintended consequences, just like all those famines that the commies didn't mean to cause (as apposed to the ones they did) and business strategy has to be extremely contextual which is why blanket statements like maximize profits even if true don't really capture the whole scene (and its pretty arguable if its even true to begin with).

Corporate communism exists. Valve run their company with "no leaders" a "flat management system". Look how productive Valve is since HL2 ep 2. It's completely stagnated where nothing gets done and only being the middle man with Steam keeps the company alive. They make novelty hats at best and at worst they do nothing but twiddle their thumbs.

There's a good reddit post by a guy who used to work at Valve. He explained how the entire place is high school politics. You figured out who the leaders are and you get under their wing or you get fired very quickly. There are obvious management people and everyone is super paranoid about everything so can't do any real work. Any attempt to progress a project is seen as stepping on someone else's toes and will get you shit canned.

Valve is literally communism in action when you give it infinite money and the ability to hire as many talented people as they want. How has it turned out? Episode 3/HL3 has been started 5 times by different groups and they have all collapsed due to the work place. Everyone with any talent or motivation left so the only remaining people are high school politicers with no interest in being productive and unproductive people who can keep their head down and take the pay check for looking busy.

Any one who wants corporate communism only has to look at Valve for the end result. "No leaders, the workers are in charge" only applies until the actual leaders walk in the door. And there are leaders official or other wise.

Well, without "(where employees control the factory)" it is just consumers' co-op. But we would also need to define economically GM/player interaction before we can say this with any degree of certainty, and I'm not going down that particular rabbit hole. So "communism" (in quotes) it is.

Either way, production for use - as opposed to production for exchange (when you make shit to sell on market) - is one of the defining features of communist economy (which is why there is such a thing called "calculation problem"; Austrian school argues that it would be impossible for consumers to predict their consumption).

It is this feature (aka "planned economy") that separates communism from other types of socialism (which, as you said, are roughly defined by "employees controlling the factory" - though, that is imprecise).

Nobody abolishes state in communism.

In fact, entire mantra about "stateless, classless, moneyless" makes no sense, as it is based on obscure socio-political lingo used by philosophers in 19th century and doesn't really mean stuff it seems it mean.

For example, you can be get paid in modern money (US dollars, for example) and spend them in shops to buy whatever you want (i.e. exactly as today), but this would still count as "moneyless society" (since US dollars would function as "labour vouchers"). Same goes for the "stateless".

tl;dr: a trip to gulag is quite possible in a "stateless society".

I find it funny how compliant other hispanic nations were with the flood of refuges when they were just heading towards the US. As soon as the caravans started getting stuck in Mexico and other hispanic countries, they did a 180 on their tolerance. If the US is able to lock down the next caravan, I fully expect violence to break out in the border towns. The local Mexicans don't want them, because they came for gibs and Mexico doesn't have that.

From what I've read, it looks like wotc is going all in with Arena. It's super popular and if it continues to exceed their expectations, it's going to take over and paper magic is going to be allowed to flounder. Hasbro is just going to continue milking its players, because there are way too many Timmies now. Of course, there will be a point in which those Timmies begin to fuck off. Once that happens, a lot of ((investors)) will panic and they'll start moving on.

Is there any reason not to play "same two deck but with 4-7 different cards?" there's no way in hell that throwing a random curveball is better than playing the deck that you think you're best with, especially without a real sideboard.

>>408801

> Is there any reason not to play "same two deck but with 4-7 different cards?"

Well, you get to improve efficiency at only one or two things (and such improvement might be suboptimal), while radically different second deck can cover more types and be more efficient at handling them.

Let's say I have Izzet deck with the general theme on having a bunch of sorcery/instants in a graveyard (with plenty of options to draw cards and to dump cards into graveyard).

For alternative version of this deck I have to choose one thing second deck will be better at (ex. be more effective against creatures at the cost of becoming weaker against non-creture spells). Some choices (ex. healing) will be suboptimal (I'll have to use artifacts, which is not as good as the stuff White has), and some will not work at all (resisting mill).

If second deck is completely different (some kind of Orzhov aggro that mass-produces tokens), I can add options both for healing and against mill (and, probably, one or two more).

> there's no way in hell that throwing a random curveball is better than playing the deck that you think you're best with

IMO, given some experience, you'll get pretty good idea on how to play other decks, even if you don't play them personally.

By contrast, commiefag up there has been attempting to argue his side of things for over a week now and hasn't been banned, presumably because he's being at least somewhat civil and keeping it contained to this thread and at least kind of restricted to the context of RPG companies.

>Well, you get to improve efficiency at only one or two things (and such improvement might be suboptimal), while radically different second deck can cover more types and be more efficient at handling them.

But if your opponent is playing 2 different deals then you don't get your "good" matchup until game 3, and that only happens if they pick wrong or are playing 2 copies of the same deck. Meanwhile you have to remember how to pilot 2 different decks against the fields without having relevant hate (or while having a percentage of do-nothings in every match).

>IMO, given some experience, you'll get pretty good idea on how to play other decks, even if you don't play them personally

You don't have an "actual argument". You don't even know what "lefty shit" is.

Simple example:

1) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LW-6HMenF74

2) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HkBZ8XFaGCI

You would say that the first is example of Right-wing values, while Salzburg performance would be identified as influenced by Left-wing ideas (maybe even Marxism!). And there will be no actual reasoning behind this. Because we are not arguing politics here. We are arguing semantics. You think that "lefty" means "everything I don't like". There simply isn't anything to discuss.


 No.408840

>>408833

> But if your opponent is playing 2 different deals

Then things get dicey. But if the opponent has only slightly different deck, then I get an advantage.

On the other hand, if you have only slightly altered deck, you end up with either with dicey result, or with disadvantage (if opponent switches to different deck that is effective against you).

> Meanwhile you have to remember how to pilot 2 different decks against the fields

And there are additional problems, like time/expenses needed to create two different decks.

> if you feel Rx Aggro is the best deck in the format why play anything else?

Well, if you actually feel this way, then yes. However, it is not always so and you wanted a reason.

>We are arguing semantics. You think that "lefty" means "everything I don't like". There simply isn't anything to discuss.

You can't even hold a coherent conversation for more than a sentence without jumping the rails to something else or attempting to sprinkle in some esoteric bullshit. You're in no position to be dictating what subject we're discussing. In the context of imageboards, the modern era, and social media at large, there's one side that promotes faggotry and cancerous ideology far more than the others, and it is colloquially understood as "the left" which is comprised of politicians, celebrities, and activists promoting an unmistakable set of values and ideas.

>Rx Aggro is the best deck in the format why play anything else?

Let's say there are 10 archetypes. Rx Aggro beats 7 out of 9 others each time. It is the best.

The 2 other two. Combo A, and B, beat the shit out of Rx Aggro, just nothing else.

That means 7 decks beat the shit out of Combo A, and B.

That means you can run Rx Aggro, and a Combo deck, or you can run Rx Aggro, and a Combo-hate deck.

But this is all megafaggotry anyways. Because the entire concept of the new new standard is to make a format geared towards arena, and ecelebs. And their new design philosophy that best of 3 matches, along with sideboards, are too complicated. It's why its bullshit which deck you play is random. And why in the end you are more or less correct, because being guaranteed to play the first two matches with an overall best deck means you are avoiding the dumb game theory metagames. Which means a ban is probably incoming.

There's been fan art of female commissars longer than you've been alive, friend. And official works depicting or writing about female commissars since well before that.

Eh, I read a fanfic about that very thing. Looks like the Black Library decided to canonize something like that. It's weird but nothing to rustle your jimmies over.

>>Nightvault: Chaos got diversified with nigs and stronk wamen

Drop back into thread, one the one hand it's needlessly pointless to diversify something that worked for a long time. But on the other hand with the way most modern black societies in the west function, from turning post Apartied South Africa into a full on basket case and to famine within less than a decade to Chriac Chicago having more deaths per capita than Iraq, to the endless clan/family fights and shoot outs in places in Somalia, to the sharp degradation of black muscianship to fucking mostly trap music. Not to mention the unwillingness of most niggers not willing to control their time preferences preventing them from not chimping out in public or in front of each other or preventing them from maintaining their own habitats.

I mean why wouldn't they be serving Chaos? I mean with the constant messed up state of Africa how do we know that Khorne ain't out there picking up new followers weekly?

You piqued my morbid curiosity. So I went and checked and they're all having a conniption over Zak Smith for some reason. I did some digging because they're not saying what the fuck happened or why it's distressing. So here's what I pieced together.

>Zak Smith is some faggot who consulted on the D&D 5e playtest and did some art and consulting work on some other games, including Lamentations of the Flame Princess

>Zak is minorly famous for being the guy who ran a D&D game with a bunch of porn stars almost a decade ago

>Zak gets #MeToo'd, more or less

>WotC cuts ties with him and declares that they are removing his name from all their books

>LotfP says some similar shit, including that they will not be reprinting any material he's worked on for their game

>Zak denies all this shit and lays out his story in a blogpost that's eerily reminiscent of the Zoe Post

> https://officialzsannouncements.blogspot.com/2019/02/the-statement.html

>Reddit is shitting itself with anger, including being pissed at the LotFP guys because they are dismayed that they can't work with Zak anymore, which they count as complicity for some retard reason.

What's also pretty fucking pitiful about all of this is that this is apparently one of the bigger subreddits. It's the RPG subreddit and the level of activity is abysmal. You'd think they'd have more going for them besides having one loud group cry about some guys being accused of being creepy.

gamestores attract trannies (and other loser neckbeards, etc) because they have trouble collecting a group of likeminded people (due to bad hygene, etc).

They're apparently calling this shit "missing stairs" which is some newspeak bullshit about how some people in the community need to be managed and circumvented. It's a really retarded way to try and make their petty high school drama and gossip sound really high brow and lofty. In reality, this Holden guy sounds like a shitty male feminist and John Morke is another #resist Trump-hating, tranny loving retard.

They're so desperate to try and clean up the industry and better it without realizing that they are the cancer fucking everything up. They are the one pulling scumbags and psychopaths into things to be part of some glorious indie clique ruling class, and then they bitch and moan when they fuck everything up, tank products, and dismantle companies.

<ovarian cysts

<allergies

<intolerance to codeine and morphine

<stomach problems

<fibromyalgia

<asthma

And at least one more long one on the side of his arm we can't read. Note, she has low blood pressure AND an irregularly high heart rate. Figure that shit out. What's really concerning is that I've met people like this, and they are always fucking mental. I have to wonder if their psychosis turns their bodies against them, or if the forces of nature just naturally reject cancerous subhumans.

IIRC, this Zak Smith had been arguing with other people for a very long time and made quite a few enemies. I.e. what you see is the culmination of a drama that had lasted for years, rather than just someone being accused of being creepy and everyone losing their shit. Though, obviously, people pretend that it is not about their personal vendettas, but Greater Good.

Same goes for other people who try to use the momentum and sic the lynch mob on people they don't like.

It's the nature of the drama. In this case, he's a man who was accused by a psychotic cunt of being an abusive rapist monster and not enough of an ally™ when he actually spent his life being an ass kissing male feminist douche clown. In that specific regard, he's innocent and being falsely accused, which is an injustice perpetrated by SJWs who seem to fancy themselves the unbiased, unquestionable guardians of justice and morality.

In an earlier era, I might give you some spiel about being consistent in our beliefs and such, but I'm pretty tired of that song and dance. Furthermore, as you've pointed out, Zak dug this grave for himself. This isn't an innocent man being blindsided by a hair-trigger hate mob. It's a goony faggot who spent years rubbing nonbinary dicks with other whores and lunatics. To continue to metaphor, he dug his own grave, filled it with shit, and now he's angry that he has to climb into a shit-filled hole and get shit on.

>I also find it very amusing that dear old (((Zak))) has clearly used "Mandy Morbid", the very accuser who's now fucking his shit up, as the model for several of the Amazons in the book.

How much do you want to bet that it might be due to a "punk" lady slowly creeping past the fertility age and getting what one might call '''THE EPIPHANY STAGE"' (please cue the song "Aquarela do Brasil" as sung by Geoff Muldaur) : https://archive.fo/DUYJz

The TL;DR with the Zak sitrep is pretty simple to understand, "Mandy Morbid" liked the attention when she was younger and collaborated with Zak with the promise of maybe being different to the regular trash that passes for pr0n thots in the instagram age. But like all thots you get older, and once you hit your fucking thirties it's like that other song that will now be cued (the WWF theme for The Wall), which as the 30 year old was now smashing into it (She's was born in 84).

So having hit that wall she only had the only choice an aging Khazar Canuck could do when you've made shite life decisions to suck poor punk dick instead of settling down with a sane man who has a real trade/career and real wealth outside of tinny shekels one gets from the OSR and/or current year pozzed bu/tg/ame community. Accuse your collaborator of non-exsist abuse to squeeze him dry of resources then jack the cash with your hypergamic senses and then work your way to trying to become a "respectible lady" while trying to run from said skank past in the process.

This is kind of milf compared to the kind of stuff being pushed on other open source projects where they denounce meritocracy and embrace the progressive stack. However, it's still wholly unnecessary and I can't imagine a single reason why they'd think they need to rush to the defense of people based on identity on a wholly impersonal form of communication and interaction. Furthermore, it's yet another tech group falling prey to the cancerous ideology of lefty identity politics, which shows that there's already someone inside the group who is probably using the same shaming tactics we've seen countless times before to make everyone else kowtow to the moronic victim and oppression narrative.

Look at it this way, the current SJW bullshit had its roots in the 90’s mainly in academia before coming to the sun in the late 2000’s. Then it reached critical mass in 2013-14ish before finally the cracks staryed to show. Here we are over half a decade later and still dumb fucks are pushing it regardless of how much it hurts their products.

As I see it, we had those phase one infection types in the hobby from the get-go as this is a european product which lends it self to a degree of leftist fanbaae. Now that magic the gathering has been pozzed in and out, the virus is looking for something else to infect. Warhammer has been on their hitlist for a while and its only a matter of time before the cross pollination from companies like WoTC comes over and those seeds of shit start sprouting up.

We have to be zealous in our pruning of this degeneration as any inch given to them will turn into a mile very quickly.

Definitely my opinion. GW have/are still running roughshod over their core IPs. I can't see anything they do to virtue signal diversity equalling their killing off of WFB after crashing the playerbase with greed and incompetence to replace it with a dumbed down zoomer MOBA aesthetic skirmish game. Or the clumsy way which they advanced the plot to change the tone and aesthetics of 40k, all that Primaris special snowflake shit so you can't get any more free characters or special weapons out of your bitz box. The response by an anti-SJW might be that this is lube to make the setting more palatable, Girlyman is going to make the Imperium an unproblematic protag faction, whatever. Maybe that's the case, but the Warhammer Fantasy and 40k I knew and loved is already dead from an official perspective. We are talking past tense.

Of course they wouldn't lose the boobplate. No character design makes a female tabletop player cream her jeans like any kind of corsetry visuals.

If they were smart, they would have Nu-Marines as their own faction led by Girlyman. Let that be the Nuperium where everything is rainbows and penny whistles. Meanwhile, there is still the old imperium, the Inquisition, the non-Cawl Mechanicum, the Guard. They could be under the leadership of a much more pragmatic Primarch, such as the Lion or Dorn. Establish a dichotomy between Guiliman's idealism and the other Primarch's pragmatism. Have it obvious that Guiliman is basically building Imperium Secundus 2.0, faffing about with civic reform instead of fighting, just like during the Heresy.

There, GW gets to have its lighter tone while also keeping the grimdark at suitable levels so as not to alienate the fans.

>>413786

/pol/ was fine in 2014 for a simple reason: Not everyone was /pol/. To elaborate, the people coming onto /pol/ weren't there to meme and larp, they were there to talk about politics. The largest group by far was libertarian in political sentiment, and there were even a small number of left-wing types rounding out the group. There were a lot of first-time threads (for this site) and people were enthused to have a place with little moderation where they could talk freely about things. There were imperfections as in all things, but it worked.

/pol/ was diminished for a few reasons. The first was that once new threads turned stale, and people began to fall into a rhythm. The second was that /leftypol/ split-off into a separate hug-box - which also caused /pol/ to flip from arguing across the spectrum, to having internal debates over the most insignificant of points. The third was that because of the prior "golden age", a lot of people started getting overtly high-opinions of themselves - "we know", "we're actually higher IQ than the world beyond", "we're wizards with magic powers", and so forth - because there's nothing else for a bunch of friendless NEETs to power-trip over.

The fourth was the election, when /pol/ turned itself into a political tool, and began inviting in people who were little more than slightly edgier cuck-chan or reddit memers. Whereas 2014 /pol/ had at least a vocabulary to discuss topics, you could damn well bet the average poster in early 2016 couldn't tell you the meaning of mercantilism (an exceptionally relevant phrase in the last few years) without copy-pasting from Wikipedia (if they even bothered to look, rather than just trusting some stupid fucking info-graph). And when people do use terms, they misunderstand them. I mean fuck, look how people misuse use basic fucking politic terminology like "neoliberalism". And don't even get me started on how much of a butchered understanding of money and banking these faggots have: I'd imagine of all the UIDs on /pol/, you could count on one hand the number the number who understand the backing theory of money.

People on /pol/ today (and frankly for the last 3 years) are a fucking cancer, and they absolutely refuse to fact-check anything. To give an example: Half of the fucking anti-holocaust things floating around right now base their central argument on the census figures from the Red Cross, and call the 'revised' version kike-doctored; the original census in question was a projection using data from previous years to gauge population growth, while the latter version was the official numbers once the war closed. Daring to post that on /pol/ now will get you labeled a kike, because nobody is willing to do their own research, and just spits memes. And yet in spite of all of this, /leftypol/ still manages to be more unbearable. I guess there's only so much you can expect from people who quite literally encourage each other not to read books on economics, but it's still impressive in a way.

All of this could have been avoided if the board administration hadn't been a hot piece of shit for that whole time span. But mourning won't do us much - Ultimately, you're better off taking what you do learn, and taking it with you into the real world.

I suspect most would return to 4chan and reddit. There would be a small number of people who would stay as cross-posters elsewhere, but probably only on /v/. Some would move to discords and the like. A small number would prop up one of the smaller politics boards. But there's also a lot of good posters (of the few left) that would be lost from the deletion - self-moderation and balkanized boards was a big part of 8chan's philosophy. I hate what /pol/ is now, but I'd be extremely worried if it was simply erased to solve the problem.

>>413813

Peak was probably the span from September 2014 to, at most, March 2015? Things were still mostly fine until August 2015. Quality jerked up and down throughout 2016 but followed a general downward trend. The foreigners in 2016 were bad, but it was 2017 when they decided to stay, but without the excitement of the election - I can't say exactly when Rome fell, but from 2017 onward it's almost unrecognizable to me.

There's an old saying about how a given community can never really improve while it's well-known, only degrade over time.

That's not how /pol/ was or worked at all. /pol/ was originally /new/ (if we are going so far back into 4chan days) which was specifically for discussion about current events. Since there were so many clashing views on how to interrupt current events, the whole thing devolved into arguments which turned political. The big two winners in this engagement were the libertarians and the national socialists. Everyone else was ground down by these two group's sheer autism. The communists, main-line conservatives and liberals were effectively debated out of the way. /leftypol/ had to make their own board just because they kept getting their rear ends spanked a deeper shade of red than before. /pol/ is a shadow of its former self because it retooled itself (like a factory is retooled in mobilization of war) to do its ever so small part to meme Trump into power. The thought being that if immigration--mainly illegal--was taken care of, the demographic future for the possibility of electing smaller government and keep progressive rot out of power could be maintained. Turns out Trump was limp wristed about that, and prosecuting criminal cabals like Clinton AND all the shit Obama did. A pipe dream that he would go after the Bushes too for Iraq, but he did maintain for a while he was against it. So now /pol/ is flooded with tons of idiotic reddit users who haven't opened an actual book or read history beyond what was force-fed them in High School.

But don't think for a moment that /pol/ was some sort of diverse eco-system where all political ideologies got along until "those ebil notsees came around". But as things stand, the only thing which can keep out SJWs is to apply its anti-matter equivalent, which is a healthy dose of /pol/. Not enough to swamp your board and turn it into a "is X degenerate" and "X is a plot by Jews", but enough shitposting to trigger the undesirables out of your pastime.

The libertarians started dying off after 2012. When Ron Paul got shut out hard in the GOP primary and the media made an effort to ignore him completely. Those disaffected with the mainstream betrayal eventually took to more extreme reactionary corners. Nowadays there's larping Nazi and Hoppe style Libertarians. Hoppe being the only one I know of being consistent with anti-immigration and closed communities instead of "free trade must also mean freedom of movement of all people!". After the showing in 2016, the Libertarians as a whole are a pathetic joke and impotent.

But as here >>413740 if you do not include your politics, the other side will not keep theirs out in an act of deference. If, for example, Warhammer 40k isn't apologetically and unironically religious zealotry and fascist in its themes it will be ruined by injection of San Francisco pozz and be warped into something utterly unrecognizable.

I think /pol/ went to shit when Reddit did its big purge of the Million Dollar Extreme fanbase and brought those cretins here. /pol/'s biggest mistake in reacting to them, I think, was that /pol/ didn't shame tardposting. By tardposting I mean posting with poor spelling and grammar (so called because it makes you look like a retard); tardposting should be shamed wherever it appears, because if you tolerate it you encourage lazy, low quality posts. Not humorous shitposts, just incoherent retardation. When posting a thread, it's generally accompanied by caps or all caps in the title and/or body of the OP.

Look at /tg/ and you'll see very few tardposts, because when someone types like a retard we call them out on it and they either leave, or take more effort to post in the future. Result? Higher board quality. The same holds true on RPGCodex. To have a good community you need good conduct and effort put in. /pol/ used to be like that and it was a high quality board, and users who counted /pol/ among their main boards tended to post constructively on other boards, or at least make entertaining shitposts rather than unfunny tardposts. Now /pol/ is increasingly composed of tardposts and the quality has plummeted; naturally, this has led to low-IQ ideologies like mainstream American conservatism becoming prevalent.

The best thing we can do to preserve /tg/'s quality in the face of increasing migration from other boards and other websites is to rigorously shame tardposting whenever it shows up. In this manner, only those who belong here will come and stay.

Attached is a sample tardpost. Note the frequent spelling errors, random decision not to capitalize, lazy abbreviation, etc.

Mercantilism is where you aim to ensure that your country wins in international trade, rather than potentially getting fucked by other countries.

In a free-trade situation you're mostly interested in the benefits of the individual, you don't really care if your country overall does very well in trade so long as the wealthy elites are able to profit. In mercantilism you're not concerned with whether or not the wealthy elites profit, but merely in whether trade benefits the nation overall or not.

So when China blocks imports of manufactured goods and only allows raw materials to be imported, while exporting manufactured goods, that's mercantilist because it results in a stronger manufacturing base within China. When the US, Canada, etc allow China to export manufactured goods to their countries while refusing to let them export manufactured goods to China in turn, that's the opposite of mercantilism because they're letting China fuck their countries because it does benefit some of the wealthy elite in the west to have that situation.

My posts only concerned 8chan. Don't confuse the presence of different groups with me implying they had any major presence: The left-leaning sorts had at most a 15% presence at their peak, and most of that was composed of anarchists or slight left-leaning centrists. The commies were always a tiny number, they were just the loudest and most obnoxious faggots of the bunch.

>>413905

Mercantilism is, broadly speaking:

>>413907

Most economists will tell you that free trade causes the most good for the most people. This is true, but it is not is not strictly true for all economies: The US, for instance, is a price-setting economy, meaning that it can impose policies like tariffs and profit. Domestic consumers and foreign producers both lose, but domestic producers benefit slightly and the state collects taxes, which can be spent on other causes. Smaller countries can't do this, but might implement policies of the sort in a misguided effort to prevent a balance of payments deficit - they would be better off with free-trade policies.

It should be stated: Mercantilism as a general rule benefits the wealthy elite and the state, since it benefits producers at the expense of consumers. Some will benefit - because producers are doing better, workers in that sector will also fare better wage wise; of course, the dollars they earn are also technically worth less, so the degree is variable. For mercantilist policies to benefit the average joe, the state must be damned good at spending the money they make.

As for quantity/backing theory: The most commonly accepted monetary policy is quantity theory. To make a longer description short, quantity theory claims that if a bank issues out $500 into the market, there is more money in circulation, and inflation has occurred. There is a "base" amount of money in the market: So for instance, in the US, there might be $3.7 trillion in bank notes and coin; through bank loans and deposits, the amount actually circulating is $14.3 trillion (actually more). Under quantity theory, the banks doing this causes inflation in the market.

Backing theory is a bit more niche and a newer term, and I'm a bit of dick for listing it, but it's a lot more sensible. Backing theory considers money a little differently: Rather than the amount in circulation determining inflation, it's the amount of it that's backed. Quantity theory only looks at liabilities, backing theory considers the assets behind them. So when a bank issues out a loan for $1000, this won't cause inflation so long as the bond it receives in return is appropriately valued to the market rate of interest. Understanding it it is important for getting a clearer picture of how banks work, so you don't end up bloviating about "dollars aren't worth anything" when the actual economy is a lot more nuanced than that.

My number one recommendation to people who want to read more is an eReader, and using Lib Gen. The cheapest ones are Kindles, but I dislike the amount of authority Amazon has over those; I'd recommend a Kobo, or at the very least, a Nook. That'll run you about $130 upfront. However, the typical book is about $20 nowadays, and you can find a lot of stuff in ePub or PDF format that is out of print (and thus worth a lot more); you can also save cost on public domain books. If you can knock out at least one book per week, you're looking at no more than 2 months to have "saved" money. Less if you're willing to get one of those cancerous "ads included" Kindles.

My number two is the public library. eReaders again make this easier, since a lot of big libraries do e-books nowadays; but if you're in a library, you might as well pick up a physical book. If you're a university student, take advantage of your school library while you can. Or if you're not, try to find out the guest rules at the nearest university, or even community college. You'll be surprised at the resources available.

My number three applies only to the underage and a few stragglers who haven't yet, but plan on, attending university - Don't be stupid with your major choice at university. If you don't care about politics and just want to make money, and can handle it, do computer science. If you want good job prospects, but also want a lot more leeway to look into other things, economics is ideal. If you only care about education and are self-motivated, major in history or international relations (if available), go to the library often, and throw yourself into academic research. These are your "best" options - everything else is just a worse version of one of these, unless you're really damned passionate (and good) at it.

If not university, take some online community college courses on things. Most will run you maybe $100 or so at most - if you're poor, you might even get them for free, depending on where you live. It won't do you as good as a full-blown course, and frankly, a lot of online courses suck. But some don't, and can also be transferred for degree credit.

Wikipedia is unironically useful. Don't read an article and then start talking about shit, but if you see someone discussing something and want to know a little bit of context, it's a good tool. Treat it as a springboard to finding other things, and do a bit of research, and you'll have a good tool in your self-education arsenal. For a bit more structure, I'm told CourseEra is great; I don't use it myself, but I've had a lot of people say good things.

>Most economists will tell you that free trade causes the most good for the most people.

Eh... I find when you ask them who exactly benefits is when they start to get evasive and begin misdirection. Rare is the economist who will explain precisely how free trade helps the working class - how they benefit from transitioning from factory work to service-sector serfdom. Some will talk about cheaper goods, but in reality this is only a benefit to those whose earnings haven't declined due to outsourcing; those who have, are basically getting the same amount of goods. They're cheaper, but the buyer has less money too. Real-estate doesn't get cheaper, however, so the working class man is left able to buy the same amount of stuff, with a less enjoyable job, and can't afford to own a home instead of renting.

To be sure, the upper middle class benefits greatly from free trade. If your job is not affected by free trade then yes, you actually do feel the benefits of those cheaper goods without the downsides.

Don't forget another part of the equation, i.e increased taxation on the already squeezed laborers because their static wages are far easier to target than the free-trade internationalist's income is, which is particularly ironic when one considers that the free-trade internationalist's income wouldn't be possible without the worker's labors, but the laborer does not need the internationalist and can simply switch jobs or, at worst, can just barter his services.

This is true if the worker practices a skilled trade (ie, is a plumber or electrician) working as a contractor rather than as support in a factory. But if he is a factory worker then he is at the internationalist's mercy, unless the state cares to protect its own labour base by practicing mercantilism against the internationalist and his foreign allies.

If you think that most people would rather work in a factory job than a service-sector job then you're delusional. Some? Yes. But the proponents of industrial jobs are almost solely those who have been doing it their whole lives. Service-sector work is no more-so a form of "serfdom" than industrial or agricultural. If you actually look at the United States, you'll realize that the number of places where you "can't afford to own a home instead of renting" are few and far between - isolated principally to California, Florida, and areas like New York City. People insist on living in these places while poor instead of moving, but that's not because it's impossible to do - it's because people insist on staying places they can't afford the cost of living. There are plenty of job opportunities for those attempting to seek them.

If you want an economics explanation, you need look no further than a text-book. People have been making complaints like the ones you've given for decades, but there are no models or data which support the accusation. There is data suggestion inequality and difficulty in the United States, but the simple fact is that even in places like Los Angeles, a person working minimum-wage can support themselves with rent (I know a few aspiring actors who can prove that point); in other places, this is much easier. Of course, there are some 'unlivable' places - San Fransisco comes to mind immediately. But that's not a matter of free trade; if anything, San Fransisco is the most state-controlled city in the United States, and should be used as evidence to the contrary of allowing state intervention in the economy.

Furthermore, there's the fact that most of these issues are brought on by the fact that the US government, and the state governments of places like California, mismanage absolutely everything. Tax codes are but one of the things that's fundamentally broken.* Immigration from the southern countries, generally speaking, has a direct negative impact on the American working-class (in contrast to workers who stay abroad). Health services are fucked, there's no other way to put it. But again: These are all issues cause by state interference, not by the market.

* This is a point of contention, but I'm strongly in favor of bracketed and raised capital gains taxes. This prevents working- and middle-class investors from being discouraged by high taxes; the upper-class can handle the excess burden. Obviously this first requires a state better at managing the collected funds - I'd move it to education reform and mental health services. As an aside: One of the plagues in the US is the "squatter land-lord"; people who own large amounts of land, but refuse to rent it out, and leave it useless. You need to remove rent control first to make this viable (rent control is ill-thought to begin with), but finding land-lords or real estate investor for holding dilapidated, unused buildings, would indirectly incentive lower rent prices, assist small-business start ups, and provide for more housing.

There's no difference between the two and I absolutely abhor either. Despite that, I would do them for less than five-hours a day for preferably four days a week, as the problem with longer work is that it tires me out, and I have very little time to do what I want, besides not having the energy. Retail and factory jobs generally require very little thinking, so I'm free to put my mind elsewhere, which is why they're arguably better than, say, a job as an accountant, unless you enjoy that sort of work. Personally, while I have many interests and find many things enjoyable, I tire of them eventually, which is why the prospect of a life-long career terrifies me. Perhaps this is because most humans were not made to be doing the same thing over and over, no matter what it may be. If you look at the life of a Medieval serf for example, while crop farming is his main job, he has other duties to attend to. Just a thought.

Regardless of all that, I love being a NEET, where my work lies solely in daily chores, gardening, and personal education, and I hope to stay a NEET for as long as possible. Truly the Patrician's lifestyle.

Yes, I am. Keep in mind that this is stated within a very narrow bound: in the United States, as an example, there are a huge stack of labor laws, safety restrictions, and other regulations which make factory work a much nicer prospect than it has historically been. Furthermore, whatever experience you might have had, there are a large number of people quite willing to work in retail jobs.

The problem that the United States is dealing with in this regard stems in strong part from minimum wage laws. The current tend is for people to work retail and similar jobs as careers. This is absolute insanity: These are meant to be entry-level jobs for people on their career path, not the end point. People aren't supposed to be working minimum-wage spots at Staples for their whole life; nor are they supposed to be working at entry-level wages in factories until retirement. This is a bastardization of the functioning market caused by present conditions.

>>414019

I don't disagree with this point - my argument isn't that factory work (in developed countries) is terrible; it's that service jobs aren't some sort of awful slavery. That is a fallacy pushed mostly by the various sorts of socialists who lack experience in the work force.

US public education is fucked in its push for a university education. Strictly speaking, I would say that less than 50% of the people getting a university education belong there; even that might be too high. Subsidized education is given too freely, when it should be awarded solely based on merit; the result is the spread of useless degrees, in fields such as critical studies, which contribute nothing. On the other hand, little to no attention is given to trade skills, or other professions which should by all rights pursued.

Frankly, I'm convinced that most professions (doctors, lawyers, certain engineers, etc.) would be better off re-fashioned from scratch as apprenticeship programs, but we're probably too far gone for a return to that form. It's unfortunate.

Quite the opposite. The only word that you can really stand on is slavery (because its not) but then again lots of things (like indentured servitude) have not been slavery. Service is servile, you are most likely to be assaulted and treated like shit in service and in terms of the kinds of jobs a slave would do (serving food, cleaning, running messages, etc ) its the closest match. Factory jobs aren't magical but they often pay reams better and teach at least some skills that are transferable whereas service is just about asskissing and that's about it.

There are lots of trade skills that are not being matched to job demand either (I know welders and pipefitters out of work, go figure strange world we live in). Basically the government thougth the schools would do it and the schools don't care as long as they are getting paid (despite the fact it is currently biting them in the ass and will continue to bite them in the ass until the ivory tower completely crumbles).

Comparing the two I've personally found factory work to be a lot easier than retail. The factory included a test for being physically able to lift 100 lbs., but on the actual job they're so deathly afraid of paying for a workplace injury that no one actually has to do any heavy lifting. In retail they'll destroy you (it is scary to see how physically broken down some of those people are after years of doing the job) and do their damnest to avoid any responsibility in the matter. Why didn't you ask for a team lift when we schedule you to work alone? Did you file an accident report? That torn rotator cuff must be from something you did off the clock then, instead of unloading a truck full of furniture for us. I saw a girl once return to work with her arm in a sling and receive zero compensation because according to policy she wasn't entitled to it since the injury had not caused her to miss a full week of work.

The biggest factor that separates the two is that in a factory you actually have to do your job. Production quotas really cut into the bullshitting around/goldbricking parts of the workday.

>>414057

This is going to vary largely based on cost of living and the job market in your area, but typical career jobs aren't necessarily better than low status work. A Wal Mart employee who knows how to budget properly is going to fare better than your average office worker. Most of the career people I've met are fairly miserable. They spend too much on everything, have multiple subscriptions to services they barely use, accrue debt, don't save, don't invest. Yes, if they did manage their money better than they would be more well off than the lifer at Wal Mart, but that's what it comes down to, failing to leverage your resources is a larger detriment than having less resources.

FFS, how many of these people leave $5k in a savings account? If you're going to let your money just sit in the bank at the very least get a money market account. The interest is still shit but it's double a savings account. If you have to access it more than 4 times a month than it's not really savings anyway.

In terms of budgeting: That's just a factor of the average person not actually being that smart, or ambitious. I've known ambitious people who took food out of the trash can behind the KFC and lived out of their car (homelessness isn't viable; you need a place to store your shit) for months, and crawled up to management or even owner positions. I've known unambitious people who've worked the same jobs in fast food for 20 years without promotion.

Of course, there's ambition, and then there's the ruthless back-stabbing that "successful business people" have. The corporate ladder is a travesty. People who move to climb it have ambition, but it's a lazy sort of ambition based around manipulation; it's a different sort entirely than what you see among small business owners, entrepreneurs, and the like.

Among the 30yo boomer crowd I know it's a cuckchan meme, but it's accurate from what I've experienced, there are a startling number of people who spend upwards of $700 USD on food every month because they can't cook. And not "can't cook" as in they dislike it or are bad at it; the people I've encountered literally wouldn't know how to hard or soft boil an egg if their lives depended on it. To such people, the act of cooking a week's worth of food on the weekend or planning a meal calendar is black magic for all intents and purposes.

the main mechanic that I think happens is because maintaining a wiki/irc/channel/discord/etc is work, having someone who is interested in helping is a godsend. That person can restrain (or may even not be as big of a fag as they become later) their faggotry enough to fit in but then slowly shifts what is acceptable to the base (signalling to more liberal faggots to join in ,etc).

I think kind of like evolution these places can only go two ways, left or right (in evolution bigger or smaller) and if they are not actively going right they are infact being pushed left (this is similar to the overton window or the pendulum theory. If the leftists aren't winning we win by default there is no status quo really its more faggtory or more rightwing).

So that's ignoring the fact that lots of these faggots do this on purpose. The 1d4chan crew used to be okay but little by little leftists displaced hobbyminded poeple (of all kinds) and now its a pozz shithole.

The general resource it offers as a database of games with all the useful info on hand is decent. Even the review aggregation is somewhat useful, as reviewing board games is less likely to be distorted for flimsy reasons. If a game has poor box design or cheaply made components or a shitty rulebook, then you can likely find the reviews from users saying so.

Where it falls apart is the community, which is pretty much the neoFAG/ResetEra of the board games community.

Gee, I wonder.

I don't understand why you would even buy something like that. At least when you buy a regular roleplaying game you're paying for people to come up with dice mechanics and stats that interact with them, and playtesting to make sure the mechanics are fun to play. Maybe even some maths to keep the game world consistent. If you and your friends want to improv theatre your ideal post apocalyptic pozfest, there is absolutely nothing stopping you. It doesn't even look like an especially ground-breaking setting, it's just a gay wasteland with Jew magic. Just live in the anglosphere and wait thirty years for the same experience for free.

No, the only difference is vampires have supernatural powers and bite people. Jews prefer to suck blood off of baby penises under the guise of religious rituals.

>How Dungeons & Dragons somehow became more popular than ever

http://archive.fo/hLbAk

Some faggot posted this as its own thread, but it really should go here. There isn't anything new said in this article, but there are a few sections which may prove insightful for analyzing how normalfags perceive our hobbies (and how the MSM wildcats them into playing).

>pic

>Stars of “Girls Guts Glory,” a Dungeons & Dragons Web series, from left: Kimberly Hidalgo, Erika Fermina, Kelen Coleman (kneeling), Rachel Seeley, Allie Gonino, Alice Greczyn, Sujata Day and Kelly Lynne D’Angelo. Early episodes were met with harsh comments: “Like. . . ‘There’s no way they actually play. No one plays D&D who looks like that,’” Fermina recalls.

>D&D has come a long way since Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson invented it in 1974 as an alternative to miniature-military war gaming. No longer is it a game to hide out with in Mom’s basement.

>Today, people play it at bar and restaurant pop-up events such as “Drinks and Dragons” in Philadelphia, and “Orcs! Orcs! Orcs!” in Portland, Ore. They pay $2,650 per person per weekend to play it in Caverswall Castle in Staffordshire, England.

(I find the following two excerpts to be the most accurate description of how normalfags think about D&D. You literally couldn't find one giving a serious description of the game without mentioning how "it's not just for guys anymore" or "there's actually a lot of nonbinary representation." The trannies and faggots who play D&D in the MTG club room each week spend half the time crowing about how they love Critical Role.)

<The company also made it more inclusive. Gone is the rule mandating female characters’ strength be less than males’. Gone is the sexist artwork — no more armored bikinis, no more monsters with breasts, no more topless ladies (unless her character really, really calls for it). Characters come in a rainbow of skin colors and body types and sexual orientations — like the wood elves who identify as non-binary. “You could,” the “Players Handbook” suggests, “play a female character who presents herself as a man, a man who feels trapped in a female body, or a bearded female dwarf who hates being mistaken for a male.”

<These days, even the most surreal of feats is possible: playing D&D as a career. Popular podcasts such as “The Adventure Zone” and “Critical Role” have turned anonymous players into Internet royalty. “Critical Role” began as a group of professional voice actors in Los Angeles goofing around with D&D in one another’s living rooms. It’s become a multiplatform series with an audience of half a million people a week.

I don't agree with "MUH ACCELERATION", but rather we should funnel them to retarded indie shit while just doing whatever to drive them off.

> Gone is the rule mandating female characters’ strength be less than males’

This rule hasn't existed for longer than the author has been alive.

>Gone is the sexist artwork — no more armored bikinis, no more monsters with breasts, no more topless ladies (unless her character really, really calls for it)

Also hasn't been in D&D for decades.

>Characters come in a rainbow of skin colors and body types and sexual orientations

>like the wood elves who identify as non-binary.

Not only has this not been an issue since the first fucking version of the game, but this shows a fundamental misunderstanding of D&D and what "characters" actually are within the game.

>These days, even the most surreal of feats is possible: playing D&D as a career. Popular podcasts

That's podcasting. There are people who make some patreon hipster welfare off talking about Steven Universe and Netflix. Why is it somehow jaw-dropping for this dumb cunt that people telling a story through playing a game can be a thing people want to listen to?

>“The Adventure Zone” and “Critical Role”

Really digging deep to show that hardcore nerd knowledge, huh? A bunch of professionals and e-celebs playing a game got an audience somehow! Isn't that just so surreal!?

Fuck everything about this article and the ignorant bullshit that fueled it.

4E actually had some pretty sexy women in its illustrations; the official comic series even had a tiefling chick with huge honkers and a boob window. The 3 and 3.5 manuals did have more cheesecake art, though.

I actually had a look at my 4E rulebooks (I was young and stupid), and although there are definitely women showing cleavage ad thighs, there are many more covered head to toe in chainmail. The poz was definitely there, even if it hadn't completely supplanted the depiction of sexy women.

Tit plate, boob window armor, and chainmail bikinis were never common in official D&D artwork. Sexy women is another matter, and trying to count the comics doesn't even begin to be a fair argument (they sold like shit and got canceled, in spite of their quality). Ignorant jackasses conflate Red Sonja or Frank Frazetta paintings as being D&D, but the same people who have a fucking conniption about this dumb bullshit are also the people that claim that gender (equated with sex) is both a social construct and something that doesn't exist at all, while also praising Paizo for improving D&D, despite have egregious amounts of boob window clothes and titplate armor.

This is why I play GURPS, not because it's the best rules-set but because the sheer amount of rules autism seems to keep the pozz away, at least for now.

And probably also because the GURPS books try to be more respectful to the things they draw inspiration from. D&D pisses on the graves of Tolkien, Gygax and pretty much all of European history and mythology.

You are the most pathetic excuse for a loser in the world. You think you can gate keep a million dollar industry run by people who despise you and have infinitely more money and resources than you do? What are you going to do, invest time travel then invade every game ever waving your man boobs at people and puking mountain dew on them? There is literally nothing you can do to prevent this and anything you try is larping at best. The only chance you have is the nerd fad ends and the locust move onto a new target. With game companies bubble bursting the same way tech company bubbles burst the IPs will go for pennies. If a non-pozzed company It will be Disney buys the brand they could recover what it used to be. Other wise you're stuck with these fags or an even worse fag wrangler in charge of "your hobby".

You need to understand you're a consumer who has mental attachments to something you don't control. It's like you have a crush on another man's girlfriend and then expecting her to do exactly what you want her to do. You're a bitch to all the Jews at WOTC and you will always be a bitch unless you break away from these companies and support alternatives to take their place when the bubble pops.

D&D died when it lost the strength reduction. It was supposed to be a realistic game about adventures in fantasy worlds. Once it became an excuse to level up and have constant simulation it lost it's focus. That's why D&D today is WoW instead of Star wars galaxies, as it used to be.

The biggest flaw in the "no politics" thinking is that people are disappearing so far up their own asses that they don't understand how warped their idea of baseline civility is. Look no further than their unwavering respect and adoration for a goatfucking murder cult and their general glorification of degeneracy.

When it comes to game companies, I'm sure that some of the corrupting influences are coming from within, but the majority may be external. Companies like White Wolf excluded, because they are staffed almost entirely by bitter hipster jackasses. In other cases, I can see these companies having one or two younger hipster cunts on staff, but the rest of the poz influence can be attributed to social media constantly hammering on these people, flooding hashtags and conversations about their games with all the usual DIVERSITY! INCLUSIVITY PUNCH NAZIS!! rhetoric. It has to create the illusion that the majority of the hobby wants and supports such thinking, and also reinforces the belief that baseline civility is unquestioning acceptance of lefty, post-modernist thinking. Lots of ce n'est pas un pénis type of thinking.

For people who are just a little outside of that bubble, I have to imagine a lot of them err on the side of paying lip service to the poz hivemind. Either they worry what might happen if they don't virtue signal a little and toss in a few paragraphs about gender identity or fighting fascists, or they've come to assume that the general consensus across society is very similar to what they're seeing on twitter and facebook, so it's only right that they show that they aren't some inbred redneck bigot. I have to imagine that a lot of that has to do with many of these niche hobbies, like vidya and tabletop, being largely made up of socially awkward autists who don't actually have enough experience dealing with people outside a carefully cultivated social bubble.

Nerds have always been the more libertarian types, they will side with tranny shit because they think it's not hurting any one. What does it hurt if Bob want to be called Bobbette? I'm just here to play my game. I don't care if a woman beats up a man, I just want more cool super heroes (and tits are a plus).

The tabletop RPG crowd staff are full of failed writers and Jews. Not even joking, that's the entire industry, it's like being a computer game writer, you're just the lowest hanging fruit to get your foot on the ladder. I knew a Russabo who got a job writing for a big game company. He was very bland and just liked writing fanfiction and his own game systems. He could never have made a living writing actual books but he could write a page of fluff for a character or a unit, which is all these people really do.

You have a mix of bland fanfic writers and pozzed to shit people. But you get that mix because they're the ones who apply themselves for these positions. Very few right wingers actually submit their shit to companies and try to get in on the ground floor They assume poz will poz and just forfeit the ground. If /tg/ tried it could get positions all over the industry writing fluff and dog whistle to each other constantly. But they don't try so it doesn't happen.

I'm trying myself but I'm not a writer so that's not my avenue

How pozzed are you yourself? For over a decade now I've seen stretched ears and nose rings from the local community. I've seen edgy goths with animal contact lenses. The poz is there, maybe not in your small community so much yet.
