    TreChriron I think I'm beginning to understand where you're coming from. You think Chris's article is aimed primarily at sexual harassers. That it's an effort to change their behaviour and you're perplexed as to why it isn't being nicer to its target audience. Well, you're wrong. Sexual harassers are not the target audience and that's a very strange thing to think. It's a news article aimed at the wider community of roleplayers. Those who would particularly benefit from it are those who are considering whether to buy products sold by Fannon or Pinnacle Entertainment Group, and anyone who associates with Fannon, especially women. This article gives women information they can use to help protect themselves from sexual harassment.

    You keep saying this as if it's an established fact. Why should we doubt his motives? And, reasonably speaking, if Chris' quality has dropped over the last 12-18 months, this should be demonstratable. Articles would show a notable decline, an increase in fanatical commentary, paired with an increase in revenue or visits or something along those lines. I mean, those are @TreChrirons claims. And it's not like this sort of claim is unprecedented within the media community, we've all seen how news stations over the last decade or more have slowly turned from more traditional "news" pieces to more sensationalist stories. So TreChrirons claims aren't improbable, but they do require more than just claims. Because it's kinda farcical to call someone out for sensationalist muck-raking...with sensationalist much-raking. Perhaps we should start questioning TreChrirons motivations for being so upset? What does he gain from acting in this manner? What is his personal stake in it? What agenda is he pushing that would benefit from the way he is posting here?

    ENWorld has a lot of clout. I ton of visitors. This site has the power to make or break someone. In theory, perhaps. In practice, the number of people EN World could break is severely limited. Only a small number of gaming professionals can be impacted by this site. But, let us take what you say at face value for a moment. My anger involves the motivations here. Chris Helton is not reporting on this because he cares about sexual harassment. He's reporting on it because he craves the limelight. Okay, now I have a question... You are very, very big on how accusations on EN World have heavy impact, and can break a person. And then you make accusations on EN World. So, in case I have missed it in the morass of the thread, I will ask - How do you know what Helton cares about? Upon what do you base your assessment of Helton's motivations? Presumably, you have a basis stronger than that used in the article, so that you are on moral high ground, yes? If so, can we please see yo...

    I personally believe however, that talking to leadership in the place of the harassment, or the police might be a better course of action than calling The National Enquirer. Which part of your brain is failing to register that until very recently men were essentially NEVER held accountable because women did go to the police, or their HR department, or their supervisor, and nobody ever did jack :):):):) about it? Going to the press is apparently the only thing that actually works.

    Then, with your clout, help the aggrieved parties to a solution.You seem to think ENWorld is some sort of counselling and reconciliation service. It's not. It's an rpg news outlet. Says so right in the logo.
  • 10:24 PM - Sunseeker quoted TreChriron in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    @shidaku - I DO NOT agree with the premise that people can't or shouldn't accuse someone of sexual harassment. I personally believe however, that talking to leadership in the place of the harassment, or the police might be a better course of action than calling The National Enquirer. In the former, I'm likely going to consider you more honest than the latter. Also, if the accusers had brought this up with the convention staff involved, wouldn't it at least have served as a good example as to WHY con runners should have the policies clearly stated? It seems dumb that we have to remind people to act like decent human beings. However, once you do, and they do something terrible, you can boot them. This makes me question if you actually read the article, because the article explicitly states that one of the women did take it up with the Con and the Con even talked to Fannon about it and Fannon himself admits that he was indeed spoken to about it. I question the motivation of the accusers and more...

    You catch a lot more bees with honey.If that's true, why aren't you applying that principle in your efforts to persuade Chris Helton and Morrus? Why are you calling Chris a "fanatic", "unhinged", and saying he "craves the limelight"? Why are you claiming Morrus has been "brainwashed"? Bizarrely you seem to think only one group of people deserve to be treated with kindness - sexual harassers.
  • 07:57 PM - Obryn quoted TreChriron in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    Two honest, genuine questions: 1 - does it generate revenue for anyone, anywhere when people post comments? 2 - discussing religion / politics is not permitted, but this is - huh? This is neither religion nor politics. It is about the (alleged) behavior of a well-known RPG industry figure and (former) blogger for this very site. My anger involves the motivations here. Chris Helton is not reporting on this because he cares about sexual harassment. He's reporting on it because he craves the limelight. This is a tabloid piece. He is pursuing the cause-dejour because he wants attention. His behavior over the last 12-18 months has went from reasonable enthusiast journalist to wild-eyed fanatic. My beef is with him, this hit piece, and the obvious personal motivation to sensationalize the subject matter for personal gain. You keep saying this as if it's an established fact. Why should we doubt his motives?
  • 03:32 PM - Obryn quoted TreChriron in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    I'm pissed. I think this article is a disgusting misuse of Eric Noah's original vision for ENWorld. I think Morrus has been brainwashed by a fanatic who is on a mission to atone for some past sin, and takeout anyone he perceives as the "boogy man". I find this behavior to not only be unacceptable but plainly insane. I've watched Mr. Helton go from a wonderful industry reporter to a unhinged crusader in the span of about 18 months - and apparently no one else is even slightly concerned about his radical change in demeanor. I'm frustrated, that instead of having decent conversations about what we can do to stop sexual harassment we are instead reading hit pieces calling out individuals without any GODDAMNED RECOURSE for those individuals to do anything about it. I expected better of Morrus. I expected better of my fellow hobbyists. Jesus, our response to incidents of sexual harassment is character assassination? How does that make us better than the harassers? Dude.

    I think Morrus has been brainwashed by a fanatic who is on a mission to atone for some past sin, and takeout anyone he perceives as the "boogy man". What are you accusing Helton of? Seriously, that sure is sounding like you are accusing him of past wrongdoing. So what are you accusing him of? And to turn this around, to show how absurd this line of reasoning is: Your comment is just an assassination hit piece against him. Do you have verified evidence of this? Do you have witnesses? Shouldn't you consider him innocent until proven guilty? How do we know you aren't making accusations just to push some agenda? False accusations ruin lives all the time, you know. How do we know you aren't just a fanatic with a grudge against Helton? What past sin are you atoning for with your continuous attacks on Helton's character? You do seem awfully intent on making this about Helton's character rather than the actual accusations against Fannon, why is that?
  • 02:12 PM - Imaculata quoted TreChriron in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    The article is a biased obvious assassination piece And you base this on what? , poorly verified, and despite all worries to the contrary still published. Based on what? Regardless of the accusations (which the outcome would have been better handled for all parties involved offline, in a manner that was effective to enable healing...) So you think it is better to keep silent about these sorts of accusations? Isn't that precisely the problem with sexual harassment? Maybe if more people spoke up about it (openly), we wouldn't have these sorts of stories coming out on a weekly basis. against Fannon, This is Mr. Helton's 2nd such piece. He's on a crusade to punish people. Based on what? I don't believe Mr. Helton's motives are sincere. Based on what? Of course, Chris or Morrus or even you could prove me wrong. I'm all eyeballs. So in your opinion, Fannon is innocent until proven guilty, and Chris and Morrus are guilty, until proven innocent? I think this a...

    Well, now that we've burned Sean Patrick Fannon at the stake, justice has been served!! (/sarcasm). I would be curious to know, if at least this article has brought these women some closure? Did this punishment make them feel better? Maybe Chris Helton can interview them and post an "after action report" to prop up his new career as The Grand Inquisitor of Sexual Harassment.It's super weird how mad you are about accusations against Fannon, while it's open season on the article's author.
  • 12:54 AM - Morrus quoted TreChriron in post Harassment Policies: New Allegations Show More Work To Be Done
    I will be cancelling my support for this site, my EONS subscription and seriously questioning my use of WOIN as a publisher until the two of you apologize to Mr. Fannon, reinstate him as a columnist and get back to doing what ENWorld was designed to do. I'm willing to agree, for the sake of argument, that my speech - and by extension the speech of those I employ - is for sale; but you can do better than $3, surely? :)

    Has there ever been a point in history where a fanatic goes on a crusade and it turns out justice was served? I can't think of one. Minor point - but I absolutely can think of many. In fact, nearly every instance of society changing and justice being done were initially lead by people many called fanatics. Of course, now in hindsight we'd say "Oh, they weren't fanatics." but the vast majority of the time, who we call a fanatic often has far less to do with any fanaticism and more to do with how much we happen agree with them.

  • 03:11 PM - aramis erak quoted TreChriron in post Thoughts on Masterbook/Shatterzone?
    Does anyone here have any experience with it in play? What are your thoughts on the Masterbook/Shatterzone RPGs? P.S. There is an Open Supplement license, allowing you to make compatible stuff with the logo, following the rules in the license. What types of settings would potential Masterbook fans be interested in seeing? I've run MB and SZ, and played TORG. System is solid, makes extensive use of logarithm math. I prefer the 2d10 of MB/SZ to the 1d20 of TORG. I found the SZ setting somewhat vague, really. The details are in the wrong places.

  • 11:57 PM - Sword of Spirit quoted TreChriron in post Where to find local game shops with lots of RPGs?
    Thanks for all the advice! Seriously though, Powell's Books in Portland is only three hours away - last time I was there (about ten years ago) they had tons of RPG books. Can't remember much in Seattle, but haven't been in a decade. I was there in March and their selection wasn't as large as I'd like. It was probably about the size (larger than some, smaller than others) of what I was used to for just about every local game store back in the 90s. Second, you need to take a trip to Lacey (a suberb of Olympia) and check out Gaby's Olympic Cards & Comics. Not only is this the most awesome incredible selection of new and used RPGs you have EVER laid eyes upon BUT is also run by one of the sweetest coolest people on the planet. It's also the best game store in WA, THE US, North America, All of America, The World, The Solar System and quite possibly The Universe (although many entries were submitted we've never heard back from the award show organizers...). I also happen to know the owner...

  • 08:02 PM - Hurin88 quoted TreChriron in post What's New With Iron Crown Enterprises?
    It's probably worth submitting an article on the Rolemaster Beta 2! I have downloaded a couple of the play test documents, and I feel like you need to be an RM enthusiast to parse them properly. I don't want to misrepresent the game, so I need to dig in more to understand it. Yes, it might be best to wait till closer to publication, as a few things have changed that could make a significant impact. The size rules and turn/initiative structure have been cleaned up, the spellcasting procedures and armor penalties have been simplified, and some other changes. We're getting to the point where they've moved past beta2 and closer to the final version, so maybe it would be better to wait for that.
