Who's Pissing in My Cornflakes? (A Brief Deflection)

You're not having fun, so instead of turning your critical eye inward, you whine about a perceived lack of imagination and new ideas in the OSR, or even in tabletop RPGs in general. The problem with your stance is that many folks, in fact, are having fun. That much should be obvious. So the issue isn't really with the current state of role-gaming -- a hobby that continues to provide dividends for many of us -- it's strictly with you

(WTF am I on about? Check out Bat in the Attic. Old School Jump is conducting the service.)

  1. Completely agree! I think NOW looks like a veritable algae bloom of originality and imagination...across a swath of OSR blogs at least. (I'm looking at you Gorgonmilk, World Game at Hill Cantons, the City from the Sorceror's Skull, Porkster's d1, Pornstars' Giga-Crawler, the Zalchis-Riskail-netherworks continuum, and so on...)

  2. If RPGs suck, well, shit, wrong hobby for you then...to borrow a line from Raggi. We've got a game to go play and more work needs to get done before Monday...best of luck to everyone, in finding some happiness wherever they might be so lucky as to find it. We find RPGs to be fun. Some of the people surrounding them...perhaps less so...but hey, you don't have to play with anyone you don't want to...
