Dan, allow me to come right out and apologize for the rant I'm about to run, as I know that you worked hard on this and this thread is not meant to be a bashing post.

QUOTE
-->I am personally insulted that players would think that I would allow my personal feelings to be involved in this game in any way. I have no personal feelings about how anyone runs their races, or actions towards anyone. Its your race, do what you want with it. Just don't be surprised when you try to take actions that are completely opposite of the racial profile you created, or when you try to change your people's behavior overnight. They are not automatons, and are people.


RANT ON

This one hits home with me. Why? Because for years I have lead, run, and organized more events and games than I can remember. Here we have GM (Game Master) who has worked very hard on a game, shares it with us to play, all for free, he doesn't get paid, and he spends god knows how much time doing this. And someone slaps him with the IMO harshest insult to any GM. Someone actually had the balls to accuse the GM of playing favorites!?! That is F*ing unheard of! Actually it's not, I've run plenty of tournaments getting paid Jack squat and usually costing money out my pocket for scenarios, timers, gas, terrain, etc. and when handing out the awards at the end some jack ass has the gull to accuse me of playing favorites because I know the person who won best painted. No sheeite, you run enough things and you will pretty much know everybody. Same jack asses who think the judge is siding with his buddy when a ruling doesn't go in their favor, even if the rule is pointed right out to them in the book. Yeah I've been to Adepticon, Games Day, War Machine Tournament and the Grand Tournaments all heard whispering,bitching and flat out accusations that the person who won was an Outrider, Press Ganger, a local guy or knew the judge. Heaven for F*ingbid that you should have been out played and lost fairly. Oh no, the GM is taking sides. The GM is giving the Paladin all the cool weapons because it's his brother in-law, yeah it has nothing to do with the fact your raiding a Holy Knights Armory. Nah it couldn't be anything fair and just.

Seriously I will come right out and say it F* YOU! to who ever the F*stick is that would accuse Dan of that. The guy spends hours every damn day answering emails & calls about this game. He spends 12+ hours on sunday updating the blogs. Where were you on Sunday? Out with your friends and family having a good ole time. Dan wasn't he was slaving in front of a computer. Often not finishing until the wee hours of Monday morning. And some friggin ungrateful puke is going to accuse him of playing favorites! This game devolved into something it was never intended to be. And sheeite like this makes me want to quit. Seriously, who the hell wants to play a game with some ass monkey that apparently doesn't know respect. It's a f*ing game where the players are running rampant blabbing everything they know, everything they dont know, and just making up crap on the fly. And your honestly stupid enough to blame the GM of cheating! The one person in the whole damn thing who is honest and fair. Man up, Shut up, or quit if you really thinks it's unfair.

Holy crap does this piss me off. I've been waiting all day figuring I would just calm down about it. But no that didn't happen. But then again I'm guessing that whoever said this has never worked extremely hard trying to provide something that is to be fun and entertaining only to have one of the players point their finger at you and accuse you of cheating. You accused the guy running the game of cheating. Why don't you just pull the dagger out of his back, wave it in his face before stabbing him again.

Seriously I'm done it will just get even more belligerent if I go on.

RANT OFF

Again Dan I'm very sorry to post that. But it was totally uncalled for and having been in your situation I can't just let it go. Now back to the game

I've had a player in a face to face game do this to me a year and a half ago. I have yet to actually run another game since, though I'm probably approaching the time when I'll want to again.

I'm sorry to hear about that Dan. That's ridiculous.

Bill, i agree with everything you said. Things haven't worked out very well for my gnomes this game so far, but I am prim positive that the game has been run fairly.

I really like the game Dan has been running. He's put an incredible amount of work into it. And he is friends with members of the game. Good friends, myself included in that category. But I've never felt as though I was getting any preferential treatment, or that anyone I was involved with the game with was.

He's set up a pretty world, and a system that lets everybody play by the same rules.

He's not cheating on behalf of anyone. Bill put it better than me, and it makes me bummed more than angry.

But as Bill said- back to the game. It should be an fun year.

I agree with Scottie. This makes me more bummed for Dan than angry. Let me get this straight. Dan is spending significant amounts of time running a massive game for us, just so he can turn around and throw all that hard work away so he can help someone win just because he knows them. Seriously...grow up.

Dan, all I gotta do is play a game with my son and his massive Pirates ships collection to know what kind of person you are. Sorry some people just don't get it.
