Jürgen Hubert26,403Text hangout for the "Doomed Slayers" fantasy role-playing game setting as well as the ongoing playtest for its second edition. "Doomed Slayers" examines the social context of traditional fantasy "adventurers" and how they can exist as their own distinct social class in traditional pseudo-medieval fantasy worlds.

I've decided I should read some more of the RPG ebooks I've bought over the years - and while I am at it, I might as well review them on my gaming blog.

So help me pick what to review. Here is how I will do this: Below, you will find a list of the subfolders on my Google Drive that are filled with gaming PDFs. Pick three of the categories and write them down in a comment below this post. I will review something from the three top-nominated categories (ties go to those which were nominated first). I will close the poll tomorrow evening.

I've read a lot of articles by the War Nerd (before they vanished behind a pay wall) which discuss the practices of the British Empire... and yeah, they were largely despicable.

(Which is why I use the British Empire as a model for the Star Wars Empire in a planned tabletop game, but I digress...)

#MyFavoriteSoapOpera  

I'm pretty sure we established one of the faults of Pres GW Bush was that he never changed his mind about anything, even after being proven something was a dumb fucking idea.

The worship of mindless adherence to "be firm, be strong, never compromise, never change your mind" by too many conservatives today is a huge part of the problem.

Cruz's Rorschach fandom has also attracted unqualified praise, including the website Young Conservatives.... "Nobody likes a hero who constantly compromises on their values and beliefs or who is too scared to stand up and do the right thing because it comes with a heavy price."___ #MyFavoriteSoapOpera

As I expect to move to a different city in the coming months, I am currently trying to sell large portions of my tabletop RPG books.

Minimum order value is €20. I will calculate and charge for postage separately, depending on the weight of the ordered books. Otherwise it's first come, first served. I will also send books to other nations in the European Union (sending them elsewhere is likely to be prohibitively expensive...).

The books are generally in excellent condition, as I use adhesive cover foil for these books as a matter of general principle.

Check the list at the original post for what is and what is no longer available.

Geschichtliches

(Via +Jorgen Schäfer.)

"Vielleicht hat es ja was mit der Motivation zu tun" (Artikel von 1994, hier wegen der Punchline am Ende reingestellt)

»Die beiden Hamburger Neonazi-Strategen und ihre „Kameraden“ von der FAP hatten offenbar erwartet, auf eine völlig überraschte und machtlose Luxemburger Polizei und auf eine gleichgültige Bevölkerung zu stoßen. „Wir wußten ja, daß es in Luxemburg nur dreihundert Polizisten gibt“, bestätigt ein Jungfaschist aus Magdeburg: „Wer rechnet denn damit, daß die dermaßen gegen rechts sind?“

Der Einsatzleiter in Luxemburg windet sich, als er um eine Erklärung gebeten wird für das Versagen seiner deutschen Kollegen in Magdeburg, Rostock, Hoyerswerda oder bei den Rudolf-Heß-Märschen in Rudolstadt und Fulda. „Es liegt wohl kaum daran, daß die Deutschen weniger Beamte haben“, bringt er schließlich heraus: „Vielleicht hat es ja etwas mit der Motivation zu tun.“«___Geschichtliches

The following chain of reasoning seems to be rather common:

"I know I am not a bad person, therefore I cannot be a racist (because only bad people are racists), therefore I am not doing or saying anything racist."

Except that racism doesn't work that way. You might not ever consciously think "I am superior to people with a different skin color" and still have lots of racist memes floating around in your subconsciousness that influence your thoughts, words, and deeds in a racist manner without you being aware of it - and furthermore, a lack of awareness of how structural racism works means you will also not be aware how other people are disadvantaged, and therefore see their problems as personal failings (since you don't suffer from them) instead of symptoms of larger societal issues.

My parents are currently visiting, and thus we did a day trip to Goslar, a town in Lower Saxony - a World Heritage Site. Later on we went hiking around the Oker reservoir lake to the South, though we ended up getting rather wet.

I enjoyed playing Earthdawn back in the 90s, and decided that the current Christmas in July sale was a good opportunity for getting a whole bunch of Earthdawn stuff.

I already bought most of the supplements that work for any edition. However, some books exist in multiple iterations across the editions, and I would like some suggestions on which version to buy:

- Which version of the Core rules should I get? (And do later editions make "Arcane Mysteries of Barsaive", "Magic: A manual of Mystic Secrets", "The Adept's Way" etc.redundant?)

- What about "Way of War" and "Wanderer's Way"?

- Which version of the "Namegivers" and "Nations" series should I get?

- Finally, which adventures are good?

I've decided I should read some more of the RPG ebooks I've bought over the years - and while I am at it, I might as well review them on my gaming blog.

So help me pick what to review. Here is how I will do this: Below, you will find a list of the subfolders on my Google Drive that are filled with gaming PDFs. Pick three of the categories and write them down in a comment below this post. I will review something from the three top-nominated categories (ties go to those which were nominated first). I will close the poll tomorrow evening.

The video of Sandra Bland's arrest.

Wisely, the Texas Department of Public Safety decided to disable the comments for this video. But the comments I've seen elsewhere are bad enough - once again, there is an enormous amount of victim-blaming going around, which unfortunately no longer surprises me.

'As for the former critique, I think this episode was more significant than mere infighting. Regardless of where you stand on the wisdom of the direct action against Sanders and O’Malley, it showed the limits of Sanders’ brand of liberal coalition-building, which hinges on the idea that we could ameliorate serious injustice if we just achieve—or move toward—economic justice. It’s why he touts college education and affordable health care in response to questions on police discrimination and criminal justice reform.

For Black Lives Matter activists, this is almost an insult. To them, racism is orthogonal to class: They’re two different dimensions of disadvantage, and to improve the picture on one isn’t always to improve the picture for the other.

Jim Crow, for instance, coexisted with strong unions, high wages, and an active welfare state. When that heckler said “Public college won’t stop police from killing us,” that person was right. To combat racism, you have to fight it on its own terms. Moreover, there are times when fighting racism in policing and other areas is necessary for headway on economic justice. Ending “stop and frisk” in New York City, for example, lowers the odds young men of color will lose their jobs because of unfair stops. And in Ferguson, Missouri, aggressive policing on small infractions essentially served as an additional tax paid largely by black citizens.'___

Just in case some people herre haven't heard about this:

The "Monsters" section of the GURPS Repository has, as of this writing, 434 fan-created monsters, generic NPCs, and other foes written up largely in the style of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy monster entries.

But of course, we could always use more such entries. Most of us have created our own monsters and foes for our games - so share yours with other GMs so that they can save prep time! Just register at Wikidot.com, submit the name of the creature in the form, and then fill out the template that pops up - it's easy and the work of minutes.

Those who have conversions for D&D or Pathfinder creatures (or just want to see what converted creatures are available) should go to this page:

Does anyone here know how you can generate a list of all the files that are in your Google Drive - or even better, in specific subfolders?

(Just listing the files in my desktop installation of Google Drive is not an option, since it doesn't actually show all the subfolders and files via the command line interface/cygwin...)

"In 2007, Waller County Sheriff R. Glenn Smith was suspended—and eventually fired by city council members—while serving as police chief in Hempstead, a city in Waller County, following accusations of racism by community members. Less than a year after his firing, Smith was elected county sheriff."

I am reading up on the Sandra Bland case, and I'd like to know the following:

Why is "sheriff" an elected position? Why the hell would you want the guy in charge of your local police forces - an office that should require impartiality - be chosen by a deeply partisan process (not to mention providing further incentives for gerrymandering and other forms of vote suppression)?
