Waiting For the Bubble To Pop

What do you think?  Two years?

Remember kids: Girl D&D is Fake D&D.  It’s a perversion of the wargame cake with RP frosting added in post-production.  It’s all frosting with a few crumbs to maintain the semblance of respectability.  That metaphor is so perfect that whenever the YerTerbs algorithm crams another LiveD&D Let’s Play Cast into my pristine SDL and Bear-Fest heavy feed I think of this scene from Death Becomes Her:

“I’m playing D&D!”

I give it maaaybe three years.  The 2020 Trumpslide will feed the hambeasts a real need for escapism, and pretending to be D&D players will provide them with added impetus to keep their fangs fastened on D&D’s jugular to suckle on that sweet, sweet creative juice that we creative types have invested into the hobby and which they can only ape and enervate.  Then, once the reality of the God Emperor Eternal sets in, the novelty seekers and locusts will move on and we stalwarts can set about rebuilding this hobby from the ashes.

We’ve done it before, we can do it again.

About The Alt-Right DM

At long last, a tall cool drink of alt-right water in the midst of a liberal and cuckservative desert. Inspired by the need for soldiers in the Culture War, E. Reagan Wright volunteered to stand up to the forces of progressivism before they complete their takeover of the once energetic, diverse and just plain fun hobby of role-playing games. A lone voice in the digital wilderness preaching to that quiet, right-wing remnant that has languished in the cold for years. E. Reagan Wright loves his Mom, guns, apple pie, football, and calling that lesser game by its rightful name - soccer.
