“Xbox boss Phil Spencer said that game developers and players need to stop with divisive politics and cancel culture, and learn to find ‘joy’ in gaming once again. Is this a dig at all the ‘cancellations’ going on over Hogwarts Legacy? This comes a day after Microsoft announced 10,000 people are getting the axe, including employees from 343 and Bethesda.”

“DnD players are still furious at WotC over the OGL 1.1 debacle, and many are announcing plans to boycott the upcoming Dungeons & Dragons movie, Honor Among Thieves. This is the exact OPPOSITE of what Hasbro was pushing for with OGL 1.1 as they wanted to lock down the D&D IP for movies and TV… and the movie made be DOA. Meanwhile, Hasbro stock continues to plummet. How long until investors are calling for the resignation of Cynthia Williams?”

Sam Harris CAN’T ADMIT He Was Dead Wrong About COVID…

“For a legendarily smart guy, Sam Harris says some remarkably dumb things. Most recently the famed neuroscientist and censorship aficionado speculated about how much easier it would have been to discredit COVID skeptics if only they had been wrong about vaccines, mandates, lockdowns and the rest of it. But darn the luck that Harris and his ilk had to come across looking like they were wrong just because they happened to be, well, wrong. It’s just not fair!

Jimmy and Silicon Valley entrepreneur Steve Kirsch discuss Harris’s plunge from well known thought leader to object of derision and online mockery in just a few short years.”

I’ll NEVER Cross The Democratic Party! – Says AOC…

“During a recent Instagram Live chat, New York Congresswoman and “Squad” member Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez explained why she and her colleagues refused to “Force the Vote” when Democrats took control of the House in 2021, unlike what the Freedom Caucus did earlier this month. Her response was enlightening, underscoring how AOC has become a complete Democratic Party insider and wholly abandoned the “bring the ruckus” persona that helped sweep her into office as an ostensible threat to the Democratic Party power structure.

Jimmy breaks down all the ways AOC unwittingly acknowledges she has betrayed her supporters and become just another lying politician.”

” The Basic Fantasy Role-Playing Game is a rules-light game system modeled on the classic RPG rules of the early 1980’s. Though based loosely on the d20 SRD v3.5, Basic Fantasy RPG has been written largely from scratch to replicate the look, feel, and mechanics of the early RPG game systems. It is suitable for those who are fans of “old-school” game mechanics. Basic Fantasy RPG is simple enough for children in perhaps second or third grade to play, yet still has enough depth for adults as well.

Basic Fantasy RPG is an Open Source game system, supported by dedicated fans worldwide who have contributed hundreds of pages of rules supplements, adventure modules, and other useful and enjoyable game materials as seen on our downloads page. We’d love for you to join us on our forum where we discuss the game as well as creating new materials for it. “

A free D&D alternative.

George Santos accused of taking $3,000 from dying dog’s GoFundMe…

“Two New Jersey veterans say now-Congressman George Santos promised to raise funds for lifesaving surgery for one of their dogs in 2016, then became elusive and took off with the money.

Rich Osthoff, a US Navy veteran, told CNN his pit bull Sapphire began developing a tumor in 2015, and it continued to grow in 2016. Osthoff said he was homeless, living in a tent, at the time after losing his job and house.
Osthoff’s mentor and friend Michael Boll, founder of New Jersey Veterans Network, told CNN he took Osthoff under his wing as part of the charity’s mentorship program and tried to get help for his dog.

Boll said a mutual friend connected the two veterans with Santos, who told them Santos was frequently involved with helping and rescuing animals. Boll and Osthoff both knew Santos by the name Anthony Devolder, they said.

Santos set up a GoFundMe for Osthoff’s pit bull, Sapphire, Boll said. A post from the Facebook profile of George Devolder links to a GoFundMe raising surgery funds for the dog.
CNN has reached out to Santos’ lawyer and his congressional office for comment. Santos told the news outlet Semafor that the story, first reported by Patch.com, was “fake” and that he had “no clue who this is.”
