That which is KNOWN

Post by cuchulainkevin »

In the interest of saving time (and to indulge my inner ass-hat) I thought it might be fun to address all those topics that are known to be true, yet are brought up here on the forums all too frequently.

1. The CKG is [/u]not done. It has not, in fact, been released into distribution. The Trolls [/i]are aware of this. Despite what you have seen on Amazon.com, this is true.

2. You cannot objectively state that one rpg is superior to another. That is a subjective evaluation.

3. Gygax Games has not released any of Gary's material since the liscense was pulled. Only a very few people know what plans they have and thus far they ain't tellin'.

4. The Trolls like booze.

5. Pete likes to draw pretty women. He is not an "old-school" artist.

6. Davis is that hairy. It is not a prosthetic beard.

7. There are NO political discussions allowed at the TLG forum. Even if your opinions on a certainly more brilliant and entertaining of those (insert adjective) (insert adjective) in the (insert noun) party.

8. i.e. Religion- see # 7.

9. Julian does not, in fact, like James Ward. He does not plan to purchase any TLG products that James Ward has authored.

10. The CKG is still not finished. I wanted to repeat that in case you forgot #1 while you were reading the list.

11. Peter will not be drawing any logos/art for the Knights and Knaves Alehouse. He is unlikely to attend any Thanksgiving or Christmas holidays at K&K Alehouse member's homes. I'm not sure if that applies to President's Day celebrations or MLK Day.

12. The Trolls are late with (insert product name here). They are aware that they are late with (insert product name here) and are trying to resolve the issue. That is unless they have already published (insert product name) and you missed it.

13. There are editing and speeling (yes, that was intentional) errors in TLG products. No, the Trolls do not do that to piss you off. Any such errors are simple mistakes except in those instances where the Troll's are ahead of the curve in predicting the direction in which the English language will evolve.

14. Some people think the LoTR movies are cool. Others disagree. There are some few people who have neither seen the movies or don't have an opinion.

15. Yes, your PC is that interesting. People love to hear you tell stories about his/her adventures.

16. Troll Con is held in Little Rock, Ark. If a Northerner attends the Southern convention attendees do not re-enact the scene from Deliverance with them. Not unless you ask nicely or they are drunk (see # 4).

17. The CKG was released while you were reading this. It is now OOP.

Ha! you fell for my clever ruse. It's still not done.

Any others I missed?

Well these two need to be clarified.

#5. Pete is not an old school anything. Pete is not fond of schools, clans, clubs, parties, organisations or anything else that seeks to pigeon-hole him into any mindset.
#11. Amazing enough that this topic still comes up, which means that lot can't stop talking about me. But Pete won't draw stuff for any of those projects, or related projects that even hint of compatibility with those projects.
That list was pretty funny though.

Nice. A Top-10 list, if you will, for TLG MBs.

5. Pete likes to draw pretty women, often highlighting their behinds. They are never anorexic, nor are they over-muscled.

And I have to add to that, I actually got PB to admit that he likes ARTING up some maps "almost as much as [he] like drawing the female form." That's a quote, baby, from the man himself. Frankly both are sexy and need to continue.

Its actually a neat set up. Fairly well known across the country. One of the few... relative... bright spots in this state. Surprisingly, Tulsa is the central hub of a rather large science fiction and fantasy community in the 4 state area.

*chuckles* Oh. #3 could also add the proviso, those who know the least, defend the indefensible the most.
