SJWs attack Warhammer

Social Justice Warriors declare war on Chaos:
Maturity is the ability to respond to the environment in an appropriate manner. This response is generally learned rather than instinctive. The outdated ideas about sex and sexuality – and they are outdated – that Slaanesh represents are simply not appropriate for the game any more. They’re not appropriate for younger gamers; they’re insulting to women, to trans and intersex people, as well as to any man whose sexuality extends beyond five quick pumps whilst thinking of England. The mature response would be to acknowledge this, and avoid the instinct to avoid change. Change terrifies people, especially members of the geek community, who loathe retcons with a passion that could eclipse suns.

But, in my opinion, Slaanesh shouldn’t be part of things as they are. So how could we deal with this?

Well, contrary to what you might think, I don’t actually believe we should Squat it. For better or worse, Slaanesh is a longstanding part of things, and it’s would be simply unfair to those gamers who’ve got Slaanesh armies. As well as this, 40K isn’t just a wargame any more; Fantasy Flight Games’ excellent lines of tabletop RPGs enable the discussion of some very mature themes, especially in more investigation-based games like ‘Dark Heresy’. A Slaanesh cult could be an intriguing way for an appropriately mature group of gamers to look at all kinds of ideas to do with the aforementioned sex, sexuality and other adult issues.

So what to do? Well, in my opinion, the best solution would be to ‘retire’ Slaanesh as a GW-produced faction and make the army Forge World’s property. If you’ve not read any of FW’s books, I can attest that they have demonstrated time and again that they can do nuance. Not to mention, FW’s models are NOT targeted at children, but explicitly as adult collectors, meaning it’s possible to completely ignore that issue of inappropriateness. GW as a company can completely take advantage of this, having its cake and eating it, and they should. Obviously, this does nothing to overcome the inherent problems of sexist models, or the deeply embedded homophobic and transphobic imagery, but that’s something which can be looked at over time in Black Library books, Forge World supplements, and FFG RPG supplements.

Slaanesh has already been replaced by the Horned Rat in AoS, which clearly shows it can be done in 40K too. To be honest, this is the ideal opportunity to do something exciting and new for Chaos players, giving them a whole new Chaos power to deal with. They could bring back Malal, or they could choose something else to fill the gap more naturally. Either way, it would be a step towards turning 40K into an actual, truly mature environment, and that can only be a good thing.
But it isn't going over as well as earlier incursions in other areas, since the at least part of the Warhammer community is apparently aware of the driving force behind these demands for change.
  • You want to rewrite 40k (or something else) to evolve it into something more than caricatured meatheads in power armor and one-dimensional demons, that's great, more power to you. You want to rewrite it because someone somewhere might use it as an excuse to glorify their imagined victimhood, hell no, f*** you. We have, as a society, been walking on eggshells for years, cringing in fear every time the Manufactured Grievance Industry opens its maw, and shamed into reflexive self-censorship. That's not a path to maturity, that's perpetual infantilization.
  • The longest article bols has ever produced and its basically puritan garbage.
  • Screw this politically correct noise, I don't play warhammer to facilitate a discussion about sexuality and politics. I got enough of that in my sociology degree. I don't really care if the aesthetic of Warhammer and Slaanesh is "immature" because maturity is not a virtue I associate with playing with plastkc soldiers with a heavy metal aesthetic.  
  • Social justice gaming. 
  • Usually the "Sexist" Complaint Mob are the most racist/sexist/Immature. And they are never happy with any response to an issue they have raise. They could Retcon the Emperor into a Asexual Gender queer Arrow and They would take issue with Emperors armor being "Male armor" Or The fact he has 20 sons Or The he a colonizer. The best Way to Be Mature Is to Say. There are Slaanesh Models If you don't like them Then Don't Buy them for your Children. Your "Moral" views should Have Zero on what I use my Money to purchase
  • Today's achingly sensitive souls are like the high-minded moralists of the Victorian era; always taking offensive just for the joy of being offended. 'Look what a kind, intelligent, sensitive person I must be, I've opened your eyes to a load of crap that yesterday no-one with more than two brain cells had ever taken remotely seriously anyway.'  The article has nothing to do with morality and everything to do with the author's own ego and sense of himself.
  •  Don't like it? Don't buy it. Don't watch it. Don't listen to it.
    SJWs often forget, that we're kinda living in a free world, where everyone have a choice of what they want to do/see/feel. Oh, wait, I forgot - SJWs are the ones who try to use theme of "protecting someone's rights" to simply stomp other's freedom.
By this point, it should be obvious that #GamerGate was never just about video games, it was merely the first battleground. As explained in SJWs Always Lie: Taking Down the Thought Police, SJWs will NEVER stop until society is fully converged. No organization, no interest, no activity, and no individual is safe from their thought-policing. Neutrality is not possible because they do not recognize it. Submission or resistance are the two available options.

While so many major issues and challenges get ignored by sjws, these degenerates are still thinking the alt-right cares about their trigger warnings, manspreading, air conditioning etc.

Sounds like it's one of those Always Year Zero things, where you're not allowed to have any fun that might conflict with the nuances of [current year]'s Narrative. Lovely. (I'm down with board games, role-playing games and computer games, but I never got into miniatures.)

"...the inherent problems of sexist models, or the deeply embedded homophobic and transphobic imagery"

Slaanesh - "While generally referred to as a "he" by humans and as a female by the Eldar, Slaanesh is actually neither gender, combining characteristics of both and perfecting them. Slaanesh typically appears in an androgynous form in which it is a woman on the right side and a man on the left with two sets of devilish horns growing from its head."

WTF? There's calling THIS character "homophobic" and "transphobic"?

I know the accusations are BS, but it couldn't be more obvious that this character doesn't pass even SJW standards of what constitutes "homophobic" and "transphobic", laughably low and fluid though those standards are.

Seriously, how can you read this character as anything other than a celebration of progressive "gender-fluidity"? How long ago did Ancillary Justice win a Hugo because "muh Pronouns"?

We've reached a point where the SJW's demands have literally nothing to do with the justifications accompanying them. Can they even get any more converged than that? Where could they possibly go from here?

I still play the GW stuff, sad to say, and whilst warhammer & 40k is redpilled at base the rot has been creeping in for a while. The fluff novels in particular have seen a steady influx in 'strong female characters' over the last decade and recently a inquisitor was, for no reason at all, outed as a lesbian. I think they'll cave, in fact I think they've already preempted this with what they've got on the drawing board, all they care about is their bottom line.

GW has already destroyed Warhammer Fantasy. I have not stopped mourning yet.

At least he doesn’t want to introduce Female Space Marines. Yet. I suspect this will be the topic of next article. It will probably go like this: if USA can have female Marines why not introduce them to the chauvinistic, totalitarian Imperium of Man? Young girls also want to play but they cannot relate to immature, one-dimensioned, macho Space Marines. Think about young women that want to bring their unique feminine perspective on the grimdark. But they can’t and that’s Your fault.

Oh well…

Burn the heretic. Kill the mutant. Purge the unclean.

Games Workshop has been edging away from it, especially in the tie-in books, but a fundamental feature of the universe is that lgbtq-friendliness and sex positivity not only will damn the practitioners but carries with it a significant risk of a tear in reality pulling the entire planet they are on into hell.

The attitude to multiculturalism and migration is similarly enlightened.

R.I.P. WH40K.

I never cared for the game itself, but the miniatures and associated artwork were always very cool. Like 5th Ed D&D, it will become yet another avenue to convert normies into the cult of victimhood and degenerate sex. Just one more thing that will need to be re-created from scratch by the Right.

OpenID basementhomebrewer June 08, 2016 6:48 AM  

Thing is, a ‘god of pleasure’ sounds fine and all, but it’s actually a very difficult thing to pull off (no pun intended). In-universe, the Chaos gods are inherently corrupting, and when you mix that with ‘pleasure’ what happens is you get all kinds of Unfortunate Implications. If the god of pleasure is a corrupting power, then any pleasure is potentially corrupting. Sex becomes, by its nature, morally dangerous… which is only a short hop, skip and jump to things like slut-shaming, homophobia, transphobia… And that’s before we even get to ideas like drugs, which, again, is a very dangerous area to look at. Issues relating to addiction require huge nuance, because these are real-world issues that have real-world consequences.


That is the money line and the crux of the issue. This idiot, is actually arguing that teaching your children not to over indulge in pleasure is amoral. The SJWs are so far gone they can't imagine that devoting one's life to pleasure could some how go wrong. I wonder where addiction or mental illness or STDs in general come from? Those must just be unfortunate constructs created by the patriarchy.

Anonymous Eduardo June 08, 2016 6:50 AM  

Well it can't be hard to recreate the art, the problem is to wrestle the tabletop community out of the hands of these people.

I mean gaming is NOOOO problem. But tabletop wargaming is too niched, you have to use the right combo to get people coming for more units, scenarios, and whatev's you create.

However... Fans of tabletops and general board games, really are open to new things. They don't get overly attached with certain games, this is very similar to traditional RPG games, so if you invent a cool battle system... Please do sell to Vox Day the rights to make a game.

You can call it: WhiteHammer 50.000; The Alt-Right

----------------

FYI, general public: Yep! warhammer was originally a tabletop before it became a series of video games. Those miniatures are the units to use on the tabletop board. Yep the article is actually bitching about a optional figure...

My Slaanesh army approves of this post.

I don't play Age of Sigmar, though. 8th ed Warhammer was quite fine until they buried it with the Khaine book, but Kings of War is better. Wh was never very good, but I liked the fluff.

Considering the chaos gods were manifestations of the dark side of (human) nature, Slaanesh fits in very well. That it happens to be the manifestation of the vices they're trying to twist into virtues simply shows how strong that one is. Slaanesh left Warhammer and entered our world.

OpenID basementhomebrewer June 08, 2016 6:56 AM  

The epic move would be for Warhammer to respond by creating a chaos god representing SJWs. That theme fits the chaos narrative perfectly. The only problem is their army populated by weak and pathetic units. Their only strength would be fooling other armies into killing their own leaders.

Typical lack of self-awareness, "I want muh toy soldiers to be 'mature'". The whole thing reads like a jealous little cuck mad because everyone else is getting laid. No consistency to it at all.

These insignificant dweebs have always been wanting to 'purify' their toy game for the grown-ups they'll never be: not enough wimmins, not enough blacks (in a game where you can paint your toys whatever colour you like, go figure).

Yeah good point. It has literally crossed the void. I always found the Chaos gods are surprisingly complex interpretations of human nature including the fluff regarding the fall of the Eldar to Slaanesh and depravity.

Maybe we could trigger SJWs with a meme suggesting they are religious fanatics to Slaanesh.

Maybe a picture of the Slaanesh Deamons and the quote, "When pink hair just isn't progressive enough" or the "SJW Army of Doom"

Still thinking on it.

Blogger Cataline Sergius June 08, 2016 7:32 AM  

GamerGate is making inroads.

One of the biggest ways the SJWs were able to make Entry in games was in writing. The SJWs for the most part couldn't program for shit but they could write simple, derivative cut scenes.

Reviewers were also progressive, so right thinking in cut scenes guaranteed good reviews. It was the kind of synergy that killed the FPS as game category.

Until this year.

First there was Shadow Warrior. There was a plot but it was clearly in the back seat. Mostly you chopped up demons and looked for health packs.

No damn cover mechanics. Just health packs. Glorious health packs!

And then came Doom, where the Doom Marine actively stops the cut scenes by beating the shit out things. The contempt is as obvious as it is beauuuuuutifuuuul.

This crap drives me nuts. Used to like 40k, but jumped out when 6th/7th ed came out and made Orks suck. No big loss, just went on to other games. I am primarily a painter, but still like to play the games.

I have been seeing this trend in other miniatures games as well. I recently started playing Malifaux and Infinity, two games where there is a lot of cheesecake when it comes to the minis (especially Infinity, where all the minis and art are based on Japanese anime). While I was poking around the internet reading reviews of the different factions, I stumbled across an article stating that the games were sexist and the minis should be changed for "the good of the game". I was floored reading through the comments, they were so idiotic. It felt like it was a parody of everything a gamma male is...but it was real. I did want to scream at them to get a life, but it really is not worth the time.

Of course, I live in Massachusetts now...and I am seeing this around the stores that I play in. It is sad.

Does kind of make me want to go back to 40K and model up a army of Slaanesh composed of strippers waving confederate battle flags being lead by General Milo being carried around Xerxes Style.

- We from Game Workshop will proudly present a new demon: Trigglypuff!!!

- its characteristics are simple, no friends, fat, ugly, no money, no job, ZERO energy, can't move fast and it is definately not all that useful.

- we figured we needed to change the way we were creating our demons so we decided that the only to save face in the age of butthurt was to add characters everybody can relate to. Especially those who are pissed at everything at all times.

- Trigglypuff will come with a especially made sugar cotted armor and yes you can eat the figure if you want to.

- This character is the leader of the of annoying demons called the pink-hairs that bitch all the time against Hate-Speech, they also come from a planet where there are no such thing as... Male or female or microagressions... Especially microagressions. No fat or thin, no gay and straight, basically they are all one big huge tub of fat. And the planet is made of cotton candy...

- it will also come with it's own Scenario called: "get off my campus". This will be a exciting new scenario where you must use your space marines to get inside a campus and secure it and stop triggly's Horde from shutting down your mission.

- Yes, you can eat the board too.

The Old World wasn't lucrative enough so the GW managers brought The End Times. Chaos won. The Old World with 30 years of real world history was destroyed. It's place was taken by Age of Sigmar which is more or less a fantasy copy of Warhammer 40K - with Sigmar as a God-Emperor and his armored knights as equivalent of Space Marines jumping to other world through magical portals.

Which is ironic considering that Warhammer 40K started as a futuristic copy of Warhammer Fantasy.

Games Workshop. Damn them.

The Keeper of Secrets is sometimes represented as an effeminate dude with 6 tits. How can that NOT be a tranny/SJW wet dream? Here is the *FW* (Forgeworld) model: https://www.forgeworld.co.uk/en-IT/Keeper-of-Secrets-Greater-Daemon-of-Slaanesh

I can tell you from personal experience that they have some very virtuous types within GW so they may try this to gain sales. GW has tried a number of failing strategies to retain/grow the player base so what's one more?

Back when I used to play I was making a Slaneeshi army (did I mention 6 tits?) and finding the bits for noise marine weapons & shoulder pads was hard enough then (bits orders). I can't imagine it's gotten any easier. I've stopped playing because of the 'eat your own tail' business model they have.

This reminds me of the 'Warhammer 40K is soooo sexist' attacks last summer until it was pointed out to the people that would never play that the Sisters of Battle (Militant Nuns) exist if they so wished.

It was not the SJW BS that drove me from the game, it was the fact they changed the rules and made my preferred army suck to "forge the narrative". They made my chosen race an NPC army for Space Marines to consistently wipe the floor with for fun. I do not wargame to play as an NPC.

And I feel this is exactly how you deal with it. They loose customer base and they go out of business. Businesses have to purge the infection or rightfully die.

Truthfully, I have no interest in fighting for a game that sucks to play. If GW wants to go full SJW, more power to them. They will fail faster and maybe someone with some sense will buy the IP and make some decent games. Dare I say, Make Warhammer Great Again.

The only way that happens is if Christians are thoroughly relieved of any influence/power anywhere in the world. Even then the SJWs would continue to attack the Christians but the Muslims would feel secure enough to destroy their SJW allies. It would take the Muslims less than a week to destroy the SJWs once Christians are not standing in the way to protect them.

All this SJW stuff comes from the the elite. John B. Calhoun was a scientist that researched social behavior. The first video of his is the mouse utopia experiment. The second is the norwegian rat experiment. These were experiments into social order and structures. In the second vid, at the 35 second mark, it credits one of the study's patrons: The Rockefeller Foundation.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Z760XNy4VM
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvmPjdDDDS4
In this utopia, emerged social misfit mice that were constantly attacked by others and mice labeled the "beautiful ones" - mice that were reclusive, asexual and constantly groomed themselves. (sound familiar, self obsessed individuals that dont reproduce and are worried only about themselves?)'

Couple of years ago, I got interested in all this Rockefeller hidden hand stuff. These guys and their buddies, the rothschilds, vanderbilts, warburgs, etc... were all obsessed eugenics. They sterilized women in third world countries. When genetics turned out to be a dead end for engineering culture, they focused on social psychology. I went to the rockefeller university website a year or two ago, there were syllabi for their courses. Pretty damn interesting. Look at their research areas: http://www.rockefeller.edu/research/areas/summary.php?id=7#content
i didn't look thoroughly enough this time, but if you can look for a syllabus on ethology.

These guys are obsessed with engineering humanity - all so plebs can't rebel and assert themselves. I had a friend who told me his friend worked at the DHS. He was in a high midlevel position, a few years away from the high level positions. According to him, the higher ups attend meetings that discuss social behavior and control.

Noam Chomsky stated too that the hippie movement was dulled gradually and slowly. The mainstream media took a genius tactic to deaden activists: they kept on stating that people that cared too much are not normal. That way when individuals reflected on their actions (activism) they thought of themselves as not normal.. and human beings have an innate drive to fit in and be considered normal.

All this is to make sure there are people of no character, initiative and intelligence and just scum left.

Interesting to see "puritan" come up. I've wondered for a while if using that term would be effective rhetoric. SJWs and the left in general has talked itself into the intriguing position in which they are so much more enlightened and libertine than those uptight Puritans and Victorians, while at the same time managing the difficult feat of actually being more uptight than the Puritans or their imagined Victorians. It might sting them to point out they're more uptight than the very religious conservatives they claim to be better than.

It also has the bite of truth; you say "Puritan" and you think "religious Christian" and therefore generally "right-wing" but all the Puritanism in the US right now lives on the left.

Slaanesh is the god/goddess/being that represents indulgence, fun, excitement, etc., and there's a negative side of addiction, excess, and greed. All the chaos gods are seen as deviant or heretical, and Slaanesh isn't seen like that because of its appearance, but what it stands for. The character isn't "evil" because of its androgyny, it's seen as evil because its own views goes against the Emperor's views.

These folks are puritans. My theory is that the SJW plague is a sort of mutated religious awakening. In an earlier age these folks would have been people like Carrie Nation. But with the decline of Christianity they have latched onto a pseudo-religion in the form of 'social justice'

Of course he hates Slaanesh. He's an SJW, and they're all Tzeentch cultists at heart.



careful, it's obvious that Vox, the Evil Lord of Evil, is a Tzeentch cultist.

I'm sure if GW released a army of girly men and trannys that the public would rush to show their support and make that the most popular army of all time.

Although I suspect GW won't see this as a good opportunity maybe some rich SJWs could put their money where their mouths are and pay GW to develop the models, rulebooks and storyline. The storyline should be easy; In the 20th century a bunch of wimps gave up their masculinity and turned into girly men. They cried and whined and made real men feel guilty and then they took over politically with gender neutral bathrooms. War Gear: Tears of justice, whiney voices, guilt trip and the most powerful; Apathy.

I'm sure it'll be a best seller.

When I read that article I was so disgusted, not least of all because of how ignorant the article was of the intricacy of Slaanesh's lore and its necessity to the Eldar and the wider 40k universe (not to mention my love of Noise Marines). BoLS is usually my go-to for new spoilers and releases but now I feel dirty just giving them page views... Although She Who Thirsts would probably approve of me feeling dirty. Ha.

Blogger VFM #7634 June 08, 2016 10:52 AM  

For context: Slaanesh is the chaos god of pleasure, passion and decadence. Able to take male, female or hermaphrodite form at will.

Sounds to me as if the SJWs are the Slaanesh cult, and they're feeling defensive.

Why does he need to? RPG systems are mostly open source, and there's been a huge indie publishing movement in that arena for years already. What would Castalia House do that hasn't already been done? Or if there's something very specific that you would want, do it yourself.

I don't know. Make money. Create an RPG that appeals to the same group of people that like their scifi and fantasy unmolested by SJW. Have control over the direction of it so that it doesn't become converged. Open up another front in the war against SJWs. Create the possibility of console or PC game spinoff. Percentage of profits in models and figurines. Hell, it might be worth it just to watch heads explode because the female characters are, by design, significantly weaker and slower then male characters.

@63. All of those things actually exist. They don't make a lot of money. It's a hobby endeavor for hobbyists, not a goldmine business enterprise.

Although not entirely free of SJW BS, because the author seems to lean more liberal—although it's an old school kind of early 70s liberal rather than the modern SJW craziness kind of liberal—Lamentations of the Flame Princess already makes SJW heads explode to a great degree.

And curiously, the author publishes out of Finland.

The big companies—Wizards of the Coast, Paizo, etc.—are mostly thoroughly SJW infested already, with the probably exception of Priveteer Press, who Larry Correia sometimes works with because they're not a bunch of SJW losers. But the indy market is already all over the map, and anyone of any ideological stripe can (and probably already has) jump in and whip up your own ideal Holy Grail of game design.

Blogger Alfred Genesson June 08, 2016 11:12 AM  

I hate the idea of having to defend GW. They make good models, but I don't like the aesthetic or game system.

That said there's so much dumb in that article, I'm going to have to go after it. Maybe I can avoid the 40k part; there's plenty of stupid before that.

Blogger John Saunders June 08, 2016 11:12 AM  

@11 BlueSwedeShoes: Well, there's the fact that that character is portrayed as unequivocally evil and deviancy leading to ever lasting damnation.

"Seriously, how can you read this character as anything other than a celebration of progressive "gender-fluidity"?

They are jealous that Slaanesh gets whole armies of men, and they can't get one.

At least he doesn’t want to introduce Female Space Marines. Yet

They would have to be better than grey knight terminators.

This is another case where SJW projection reflects back upon them. Instead of accepting the image in the mirror they're looking into as reality, they attempt to break the mirror. They say that breaking a mirror is 7 years "bad luck." What if I told you that luck has naught all to do with it?

I know nothing about the role playing games mentioned here, but it occurs to me that if more "realistic" female characters were introduced to counterbalance the overtly masculine characteristics of the male characters they would probably use traditional female weapons in much the same way as they are used in the real world. Thus a female character with giant tits would get her boyfriends to fight for her. Alternatively you could have a legion of "Xena Warrior Princesses" who were all lesbians. Not sure how that would work out with the straight female SJWs though.

What is the point of the muscles if you look like a badly rendered pre-2000 face.

Well you do have to think that no self-loving gamer would tough THAT face with a ten foot stick or a pretty large Katana. You know what, I am afraid people will leave the miniature in a lead box and bury it upside down so if it comes to life it will dig downwards.

The box will come with props and botox... A lot of props and botox.

I didn't know the name so I googled it... Gotta stop using google... For click that looks like carrot-top. A image showed up and boy oh boy that wasn't pretty XD! I thought was just some mildly famous person with botched surgery, you know, like Carrot.

Saw the video... That is dumbest thing evar. Funny that the tall black man may be actually the least annoying person and he was still trying to be annoying: "You lost this one Bro!"

But I was really making fun of poor Carrot-Top. Back a few years I was a huge stand-up fan and saw on youtube some Carrot performances, the guy wasn't good looking and was very thin. After plastic surgery, it looks like one of those scary clowns photo... Hehehehe poor carrot man.

"Maturity is the ability to respond to the environment in an appropriate manner." In other words, life is not fair, dont be malcontents and adjust.

My parents were prepping me for their deaths for a long time, they understood the console or computer games like dad and I playing chess or back long ago when my aunt and I would watch Link 1 or 2 via nintendo. Dad used to say God or the Lord is the real game designer always with the same format, different design in order to reach the unknowing.

ALL I WANT is the men to lead, build and steer gaming minus the SJWAL whom always double down on (Nate's term) professional victim-hood or when they cannot create/produce anything. Unlike Vox Day whom IS A CREATOR!

I want men making amazing games that I marvel at, that inspire fan art and that are so enjoyable. Given after work, ballet, yoga, cleaning the house, I can seep or soak into a great game made for and by men but enjoy it as a lady.

It is very important to point back to the "gamer" label in that I'm just someone who like video games not a gamer. I was hooked in 1986!! Present day so happy about what good smart men create and count on my support so matter what it costs. Anyhow gaymer (?), not gamer and I'm not a gamer but someone whom plays and appreciates the multi player/PVP's, RPG's all thanks to genius game designers, you've all got my support for creating such amazing games minus the SJWAL - SJWwhom AL dont create but fake, SJW'ing in gaming is all fakery, the real men create the best and most beautiful/impressive layouts in gaming!

(I met with a gay-mer whom sent me a rainbow flag for gay guys whom play consoles like PS4) (I remain neutral and kind, they need kindness not harm, they dont even know about the book SJWAL or Milo) - I sent them here and to watch some of Milo's work at youtube (DF tour) to show them their positions are kinda flawed, I merely asked (and was treated with great kindness) ps4'ers to stop by read up on the gamergate issue and issues that are reserved for men not I. Meaning all because I adore pure chess or a RPG I dont assert myself over the men - never - or lable myself as some silly gamer - I just send them here, to Mike C , to Milo to the outlets they need to review, they are reachable younger people.

But forget all that, gentlemen carry on!
