If they do that then they get tarred with letting them go free, and so are being scum sucking pigfuckers who want that to be forgotten so they can pretend they are not in fact what I described them as.I'd be a lot more impressed if all these people unpersoning Zak would unperson a few other known rapists in their clubhouse.
Nothing like starting off your non-apology with a legal threat--and an empty one at that, since no lawyer would tell Zak that writing this is a good idea. And that second sentence shows just how badly he is missing the point. He then spends the next paragraph listing all the ways he thinks she "owes" him.Sorry for three days’ silence—Mandy’s post included serious accusations and our friends told me to talk to a lawyer.
It’s strange to have to defend myself against the charge of not loving Mandy
So yeah, there's the classic DARVO in action.It makes no sense that she’s claiming I would threaten to “kick her out if she didn’t want to have sex”, I’d call it ridiculous considering all we’ve been through together but at this point it just makes me sad that she could even claim that, let alone believe it.
David A. Hill Jr. is a bigger cow by far.
The rape face:The opening unsigned fiction piece [in the Shadowrun sourcebook War!. -S] is a how-to guide for exacerbating racial tensions and provoking hate crimes against Gypsies. I am not even making that up. It's very nearly the first thing in the chapter, and already you're suspecting that the author has Neonazi sympathies.
One of the adventure seeds [also in War! -S] involves running around murdering the ghosts of Jews who were murdered in the holocaust so that you can get to the bottom of the dungeon and get your hands on magic Nazi items that the Jews won't let you have. This is way beyond the boundaries of good taste, and considering that the previous section was registering at least four hundred micro Eichmanns on the "is this books Pro Nazi" detector, it's way past my comfort zone. Seriously, just the Jewish Ghostbusting idea could be put up five times and it would be more than adequate to make me not want this section to see print.
By the way, I'm calling it right now: the chapter "The Street Life" [in the Shadowrun sourcebook Attitude. -S] was written by David A. Hill Jr. I would be fairly surprised if I am wrong about that, even though that book has twelve authors and only one of them is Mr. Hill. The fact is that for the last several books, whether it is demonstrable plagiarism or writing from a pro-Nazi viewpoint, every time I have felt like the writing itself was trying to give me the bad touch I have subsequently found out that the segment was David A. Hill. So since that chapter in particular made me feel like I got brushed up against by the author's kinky sexual obsessions in a bad way - I'm guessing that was the writing of David Hill too.
2: Would you mind saying who wrote the Street Life section?
Jason Hardy: David Hill did the honors there.
I would be up for this too if you're still thinking about GMing. The only issues I can see cropping up right off the bat would be time zones (I'm a Britbong) and the fact that I'm a huge noob because most of the groups I've investigated are more interested in identity/gender politics or social justice rather than actually playing or hosting a fun campaign and I don't want to go anywhere near that sort of shit tbqh.I'll second this cause I'm dying for a game and have been having bad luck with microphones lately. If I ever escape this audio curse I'd happily GM for text-only players who are interested in terrible prose and a stubborn penchant for homebrewing all campaign material despite endless procrastination problems.
Huh. I have PDFs of most of the SR stuff -- I know I have Attitude. I'll have to look into this and see if it trips my creepometer. Keep in mind, SR can get pretty damned edgy, and not just in the usual 'dorky dark' sense; I am still amused that SR was warning about the dangers of home-networked appliances LONG before the 'Internet of Things' was a thing.David A. Hill Jr. is a bigger cow by far.
Some third-party impressions of his, er, creative output:
The rape face:
(I bet David A. Hill Jr. still has google alerts on his "deadname"! Hi Dave! Hope you fall assfirst on something spiky!)
I was a member of ENWorld way back in the day and one of its offshoot boards. Morrus, the guy who runs it, is an annoying Brit with a moderate distaste of Americans. Back in the day I thought of him as an insufferable liberal but that was before many liberals lost their minds and became leftists. I don't know if he "crossed over" so to speak, because I haven't been on any of his sites in a long time. There was solid game talk back in the day but I found the site tedious after a time.and I haven't checked out EN World.
Feel free to PM me for any books you want, I may or may not have themSo, @Adamska @NIGGO KILLA @Kyria the Great and I have been working on an RPG podcast which consists of us reading and riffing on terrible TTRPGs. We got the first episode up, where we're discussing SIGMATA aka ORANGE MAN BAD: THE RPG.
Hope you enjoy our :autistic: ramblings about an :autistic: game.
Awww shit...it's about to get real!
