Games Workshop thinks it's totally fine to let your game be completely unbalanced.  They said as much, almost in as many words.  It was mostly done as a "Fuck you, America" stunt, because the tourney scene is a lot bigger here than anywhere else, but a lot of people aren't complaining about it, and some people are just happy to take advantage of the power differences between armies.  Their Warhammer Fantasy reboot? No points. At all. Just throw models on the table, it'll be great!  If a person cheats, just don't play with them!  THESE ARE ACTUAL THINGS PRINTED IN THE ACTUAL RULES.  WHAT THE FUCK.

Not to mention all the fuckery they pull with brick and mortar stores, and their products going out of stock and out of print within a year and players have to special order it (or find it on Ebay for an arm and a leg, which incidentally can get a brick and mortar store blacklisted from being a GW seller, selling GW products online).  And they're about as sue-happy as Trump is.

ETA: I don't know much about SJG, either, only a hazy sort of wariness when it comes to IP.  I've asked my friend for the deets, him being in those kinds of loops to hear the gossip. 

Steve Jackson, of Steve Jackson Games.  Made all the Munchkin card games (read:  fuckin' BANK).  Also kind of a douchebag, I've heard.  There is evidence I've seen supporting this - a package of invisible dice or maybe an invisible mini? that included a munchkin card that costed like 6 dollars.  Also the card wasn't usable once you opened the packaging. 

ETA: What the fuck is it with Steve Jacksons?  Just read a wikipedia article about this one, who is American, and apparently there's a UK one who started Games Workshop. 

Fuck GW. In the ear.

If you enjoyed that, you have to check out the remix:

What even is this?  What the fuck?  Why is anything?  People are amazing sometimes.  :lol:

They're a mystery.

Oh, if it weren't rooted so deeply in pointless hate, that'd be hilarious.

Yeah, shit like that sucks.

In other news, I found a font that is dicks.  Seriously.[]=10&l[]=1 Should be second one down, it's called "semi."

Freeky, have you tried pathos or ethos?


It doesn't matter, I finally blocked him.

So my cousin, who used to live in Phoenix but now lives in Texas somewhere, is a die-hard Trump suppporter. 

I actually like him, but everything of his that pops up in my fb feed is pro-Trump bullshit.  I don't know whether, at this point, to cut all ties with him (because the shit he posts is truly grotesque) or keep trying to bash him around the head with logic. 

I watched that in open-mouthed amazement and confusion.  Just... what

I think we could throw together a kickass recipe book if we went for it, I love the PD style.

I love this idea.

1 1/4 c sugar
1/2 c butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
1 1/2 C mashed very ripe bananas, 3-4 medium
1/2 c buttermilk (make your own by using 1 1/2 tsp lemon juice and enough milk to make 1/2 c)
1 tsp vanilla
2 1/2 c all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt

1. Have too many bananas that are overripe, and double the recipe!
2. Decide to use dutch cocoa, since you have it!
3. Mix sugar and butter in large bowl. 
4. Stir in eggs until blended.
5. Smash those fucking bananas into steps 3 and 4.  Do it like they owe you money and won't cough up, the ungrateful bastards.
6. Don't forget the buttermilk and vanilla, bro.  Smooth that shit out with an electric beater.
7. Add flour by half-cups, using e. beater on the lowest setting.
8. At 1/2 c 9 of flour, decide that dutch cocoa is the same consistency as flour, so substitute 1/2 c 10 of flour for 1/2 c dutch cocoa.
9. Oh shit, need the baking soda and salt! Yup, didn't forget those at all... Nope.
10. The recipe said until just moist, and this looks like cake batter.... um...
16. Grease some bread pans. I don't know how many, I don't even know what size these are.  Pour that shit in.

The oven needs to be at 350F.  Sooo... Start that up now, I guess.  Make a rack be in the center position.  Wait.

Put the pans in the oven. Check small ones at 45 minutes, big ones at an hour.  A toothpick is supposed to be stuck in the middle and come out clean, we'll see if it does.  If not, wait another 15 minutes.

ETA:  It's really, really fucking good you guys.

This thread is the best thing to ever happen to the internet. 

My laptop what gets the internets shat the bed last week, so no internet at my house anymore. 

On the bright side, I finally got an awesome new game on my desktop called Crypt of the Necrodancer.  Highly recommended, a billion/10.

True.  It's all full of people, and people make things more complicated by virtue of nobody is exactly the same.  I did find the idea that condemning the client being toxic food for thought, though.
