You all realize that one of the biggest money-making venues in the tabletop RPG industry is promoting its sale of honest-to-goodness official D&D products as an "OSR" sale, right?

I think the controversy over what the R in OSR stands for is settled. The R in OSR means "Fuck you, we won."

Hallway fight HYPE!

"If the game designer has created cultures wth “religions,” it is going to be vital for players in his campaign to know a LOT about them. What happens if I please my “god?” What transpires if I offend him? What sorts of behavour does he approve—or dislike? Ethical questions (“What happens f I kill that guy?”) are vital, as are concepts of “Good” and “evil” generally. What is the organization of my temple and my priesthood? What about life after death? What do we know about “ghosts” and “magic?” Most importantly, what s my temple's sociopolitical position vis-a-vis the government and other structures of my society? The player who does not learn these things very early in the campaign “gets hosed” (to use the vernacular), as he richly deserves." -M.A.R. Barker

M.A.R. barker is a treasure.

What's involved in an entirely new campaign?

The death of Google plus is an opportunity.

You, me, everyone, here, there, or somewhere. Storygamers, OSRers, Messageboarders and 5e-ers, dashers and dancers and mutants and dragons.

We need to decide on a place to go, as a group, and all go there, and share it on all our blogs, boards, tweets, and reddits as the place to be for DIY/RPGs/Games .

This thread is where we decide where to go. Someone provide suggestions.

Google is shitting the bed.

My computer died, and I'm looking for temporary solutions for blogging. So I find out my blogger app on my iPad doesn't work.

I checked into what google had to say, via google search. Which led me to this shitshow.

https://support.google.com/blogger/forum/AAAAY7oIW-wLiCURWuzHH4/?hl=en

You know that is? That's one google employee, telling literally sixty people "We killed it, because no one used it. Too bad, use a web browser."

If sixty people cared enough to comment about the app, how many users beyond that did they silently abandon? Am I drawing a comparison between that and how they are handling huge numbers of their users on G+? You're fucking right I am.

Do no evil indeed. A Corporation does only what corporations do.
