So it turns out all you’ve got to do to be an industry insider is shoot your mouth off a lot, raise a ruckus, and declare yourself Kind Of A Big Deal, and presto! You’re an industry insider!
Who knew it was that easy? If you want to be an industry insider – and who doesn’t – you need to look the part. There are two ways to do that:
- Gain 30 pounds, dye your hair to look like the old women on the old British sitcoms, and wear obnoxious political gear,
- Head on over to Right Wing Games, and buy this shirt:
Everywhere you go, you’ll be announcing that you’re kind of a big deal. No one’s heard of you? Don’t have any credits in a published book? Your two credits are in books that sold a dozen copies each? Your contribution to the hobby is nothing buy political activism and dumping on people who are doing it wrong?
You’re perfect! This shirt and a bad attitude about RPGs are guaranteed to win you an invitation to sit on the best attended panels at every major RPG convention in the world*.
Here’s a game for you: Sharp eyed readers can spot a subtle troll in the Right Wing Games webshop.
* Offer not good at game conventions where games are more important than political agitation. Some conventions will declare wearers of this shirt to be anathem and chase them off with fire and acid, which damage they are unable to regenerate.
