Also, don't forget that the follow-up, Cha'alt: Fuchsia Malaise, is the most amazing RPG product of 2020 and would make a great addition to any eldritch, gonzo, science-fantasy, or post-apocalyptic campaign setting.
Luxurious hardcovers of Cha'alt: Fuchsia Malaise will be available next month.
p.s. I only have about 20 Cha'alt hardcovers left, and then the 1st printing is gone!
I'm fine with the following picks... Midterms, Primary Contest, Incumbent Re-Election, Third Party, Short-Term Economic Growth, Major Policy Changes, Social Unrest, Scandal (that's debatable - the biggest scandal was the Russian hoax, which exonerated Trump. The media constantly tries to throw anything they can at the wall, hoping it'll stick), Foreign/Military Failures, and Uninspiring/Uncharismatic Challenger.
But let's take a look at the following three. I believe Allan's own Democrat bias has skewed his perception, which means Trump is on target for a surefire victory!
Long-Term Economic Growth I don't think is accurate. Up until April, the American economy was booming. Obviously, the pandemic and our response to it screwed that up, but A) that's not Trump's fault and B) this is a snap-shot in time. The first three years of Trump's presidency gave us the best economy America has had in a long time.
Major Foreign/Military Success - are you kidding me? From crushing ISIS to bringing our troops home to brokering a Middle-East treaty (he was nominated multiple times for a Nobel Peace Prize for God's sake!) Trump has had more success in that arena than Bush and Obama combined (minus the killing of Bin Laden, of course).
Charismatic Incumbent... Hell yes! Sure, he brings out the Trump Derangement Syndrome in a lot of people. But Trump has proved time and time again that he's a showman with star-power. The President inspires his supporters, and will get his base out to vote. Many of us would crawl over broken glass to vote for his re-election. How many Biden supporters can say that?
Let me know in the comments if you agree, disagree, or just want to talk politics.
Hopefully, my current obsession with politics isn't bumming you out. Now that I'm waiting for Cha'alt: Fuchsia Malaise (download the PDF here) to be printed and shipped, I'm taking a little time off from gaming - and the election is less than a month away. Shortly after the election, I hope to get back to regularly scheduled posts about RPG stuff.
If you're an inch to the right of Joe Biden, you're called a nazi, and this is acceptable on twitter, FB, and elsewhere on social media.
They'll try to gatekeep and cancel your existence in the OSR or RPG hobby/industry/community... if you let them. Personally, I'd rather stand up and fight far-left keyboard activists, SJWs, Antifa/BLM, Socialists, Communists, and even Democrats too far gone from TDS to denounce this kind of bullshit.
My friend, Aaron the pedantic, has his own blog post where he tries to lower the temperature, ease tensions, and find common ground. I support his efforts, but I cannot simply keep to myself, not get involved, and plead "neutral ground". I have a dog in this fight and it's name is FREEDOM!!!
Those who support me and others in the OSR should not be afraid. Individuality is the key to America's exceptionalism. If you have a voice, let it be heard. Otherwise, we may all be silenced.
As I mentioned here, it's important to vote in this upcoming election. Do you want to see America burned to the ground or succeed like never before? Trump is the way! Trump is the OSR!
p.s. If you're unaware, my latest work Cha'alt: Fuchsia Malaise is garnering rave reviews (even Ben Shapiro says so, go look... I'll wait) because it's fucking awesome! I encourage you to see for yourself.
As a battle-tested creator and champion of the Old School Renaissance, I'd like to speak on its behalf.
I, Venger Satanis, am officially endorsing President Donald J. Trump. I know that I do not speak for everyone in the OSR, but someone has to take a stand against radical leftists determined to destroy the USA.
Especially under the present circumstances (Trump and Melania's positive covid-19 test), I will say the OSR fully endorses President Trump.
Thank you for all you have done for our great nation, Mr. President!
