Medievalist Mythic OSR Cures Woke-D&D Disease

The D&D SJWs want to make every RPG product an exercise in indoctrination, and every setting propaganda for Current Year Seattle values.
But mythic and medievalist OSR settings provide a cure!

RPGPundit Presents #101: Tamlane!

Well, it's time for a new RPGPundit Presents, and I'm almost as proud of #101 as I was of Star Adventurer!

RPGPundit Presents #101: Tamlane is a medieval-authentic adventure for Lion & Dragon or any other OSR or dnd-based RPG.
It's a faerie adventure based on an ancient folk tale. How ancient? Well, the most famous version of it is a poem/song that dates back to at least the start of the 16th century, but that probably means that the tale itself is at least a few centuries older than that. It's old enough that there are multiple English, Irish and Scottish versions of the story (probably welsh versions too).

The core of it has to do with a young daughter of an elderly knight, who ignores warnings and runs off to a wooded area where elves had been sighted. And she runs into one. Trouble ensues.

There's the Fae Queen Titania, the Wild Hunt, a tithe that must be paid to Hell itself, and all kinds of other exciting things.

It's a story that has been told in faerie tale books in the UK for centuries, and later folk musicians made records with it:




And in 1970 Roddy McDowell even made a really schlocky horror movie based on it:

D&D Stalinists Demand You Obey Their Fake Conduct Code

With some help from my cat "Big Chungus", in my newest video I talk about how the D&D SJW's Stalinism is reaching new extremes, and the ridiculous new "conduct" rules they want to impose on every designer in the #ttrpg and #OSR hobby.

Crawford Doesn't Get the Basic Point of D&D


We used to make fun of guys who wanted 're-dos' on RPG situations that didn't work out right. Now Jeremy Crawford wants it to be D&D policy. Because he doesn't understand the most basic thing about how RPGs work.

SJWs are in Late-Stage Hypernormalization

The dnd SJWs, and SJWs in general, are entering the late stage decadence of what can be called "Hypernormalization", to borrow a term from the USSR. But the more ridiculous they become, the more dangerous their demands become.

"Theater of the Mind" Doesn't Mean "Just Fake It"

I always play D&D or OSR RPGs using the "theater of the mind", I've never been a minis+battlemat guy.

But I've noticed that some people just throw all kinds of context out of the window when they claim to be using that method, making a surreal and non-emulative type of combat. So in my latest video I wanted to share some advice on how to handle Theater of the Mind combat, and to make sure it isn't just an excuse to go all loosey-goosey on the rules.
