    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    I don't need a court of law to determine whether or not I'm going to continue to support a company/artists that I feel are dishonest or abusive.

    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    I suppose everyone will have to decide for themselves whether S&J are sufficiently remorseful and deserve yet another chance. This would be Satine's third chance, by my count, and Jamison's second (for me, he sort of came out of nowhere last year, but I well-remember how she supported Zak S...

    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    How many times do you let someone like that rise, though, before you break out the fire extinguisher and say "No more!"?

    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    Keep in mind, Satine and Jamison CHOSE to live and work in the public light. They chose to first issue "apologies" on public forums rather than reaching out privately to the aggrieved parties. No one forced her to put that statement on Twitter before addressing the freelancers who haven't been...

    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    Satine has offered an apology on Twitter, throwing Jamison under the bus, as so many predicted. I'm not aware of her having been involved any kind of "leader" as far back as 2008, though.

    D&D Celebrity Satine Phoenix & Husband Jamison Stone Accused Of Abuse Towards Freelancers

    Can't wait to hear: victim-blaming, throwing her partner under the bus, "can't we all just get along," gas-lighting, "We screwed up, but it won't ever happen again pinky swear," or some combination thereof. In the Kickstarter comment, some backers are avocating for the project to be canceled...

    D&D General How do you schedule your D&D sessions?

    Barring unforeseen events, we typically play every other Friday night. I have a Facebook group just for the gaming group and use that to set up Event Reminders at least a month in advance. The only time the schedule temporarily shifts is if the game falls on a holiday, but usually, we'll just...

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    I'd do it (17+ years publishing product line catalogs for distributors, 10 published novels, 3 published short stories, 3+ years experience working on 2 monthly trade magazines, plus several custom pubs over the years), but my tolerance for engaging with their type of toxic BS is at zero right now.

    TSR NuTSR Sells Rebound 1E Core Rulebooks For $650 Each

    Given that they've lied about so many other things about which they have no reason to lie other than REASONS, I see no reason to extend to them the benefit of the doubt in this case.

    TSR The Full & Glorious History of NuTSR

    I'm sure WotC's lawyer's appreciate Ernie's education of what constitutes an asset and how museums work. If only there was some sort of school they could go to in which they can learn these things. HELL, they should pay Ernie a consultant's fee!

    D&D General Original photo of David A. Trampier with his cab, found.

    I would love to have seen Wormy completed, though I would have lacked the means to invest in such a project back then. The first thing I did when I got that Dragon Magazine CD Archive set was to pull all the Wormy comics out of the PDFs and compile them into my own PDF collection. I probably...

    D&D General What version of the Basic D&D/BECMI starter set did you first own?

    We started playing with the Moldvay Basic set, the one my friend owned and introduced the game to me with, but when I finally found a copy of the Basic set to beg my parents to purchase for me, it was the Menzter Basic set (until then my group of friends had been checking the Moldvay set out of...

    D&D General First official D&D game product you owned?

    The first product I owned was the D&D Expert Set (Moldvay w/Erol Otus cover). My friend had the Basic Set, and as 8-year-old, we weren't exactly flush with cash. Our group perpetually had the Basic Set checked out of the library that summer until more of us were able to find it. I ended up...

    D&D General What rule do you hate most from any edition? (+ Thread)

    I don't want to get too nitpicky about every edition, so I'll just present the ONE thing that has caused me more angst than any other rule: Interrupts. I hate 'em. I have a hard enough time keeping track of all the monsters'/NPCs' abilities without having my train of thought interrupted by a...

    TSR Darlene tells NuTSR NO!

    I would wager Grits LaNasa does know the history and he thinks so little of his marks that he assumes they don't know.

    D&D General "Red Orc" American Indians and "Yellow Orc" Mongolians in D&D

    So true. Everyone who's come to Gen Con in the last 18 years has traveled to Indiana, the Land of the Indians, much of which was stolen from the Miami. IIRC, the US government made a bunch of treaties, created lines of credit for a lot of the tribes and communities, let them run up the debt...

    TSR TSR3.5 Voluntarily Dismisses Lawsuit

    Agreed. Luke's been doing of good job of honoring the history of D&D while also being welcoming, kind and generous. I also know that because of his job (he's a Lt. Col. with the U.S. Army), he has to watch what he posts on social media. He's good people.
