baleen Hi everyone. I'm not dead. I hope none of you have died.
This man was a personal friend of Gary Gygax. I keep track of what lecture I'm on by his sweaters. I watch them when I can't sleep (the lectures not just the sweaters). Mostly he goes on autismal tangents about war, but he does have some pearls of wisdom if you are genuinely interested in design of any kind. He wrote two books on the board game Stalingrad. You know, Stalingrad? Of course you do.

baleen EURO GAMES ARE SHIT I WILL ONLY PLAY ON HEX MAPS WITH DATA DENSE CHITS AND MANGLED DOCUMENTATION THAT ACCURATELY DESCRIBES THE EFFECT OF LOCAL GAULIAN CLAYS ON THE 78TH REGIMENT'S BOOTS BECAUSE MOST GAMES SIMPLY IGNORE THIS VITAL ASPECT OF THE BATTLE OF LAMBUIE ON THAT FATEFUL DAY OF SEPTEMBER 2ND, 1942 IN CALAIS IT DARKENS MY SOUL AND WE DO OUR FATHERS NO FAVORS BY THESE SETTLERS OF CATAN
