The Most Important Debate in Gaming

Well, the dust has settled. How did it go?

Well, I don’t know who was keeping score, but I definitely got some licks in. Here are some highlights:

Urbanski: There is nothing in the rules that talks about the #BrOSR style of play.

Jeffro: That’s not true.

Urbanski: …

Jeffro: It’s on page seven of the players handbook.

Urbanski: A living world is the best way to play D&D. It’s really hard, though. Takes a lot of skill. And it takes a LONG time to really develop.

Jeffro: The #BrOSR has made it trivial to get a living world right out of the gate. Anybody can do it.

Urbanski: The OSR is so great. Everything is cross compatible. I can use stuff from any game with whatever I am running!

Jeffro: Bruh. It takes like two minutes to stat up anything you can imagine. It’s not that hard.

Urbanski 500 times: The #BrOSR is a cult.

Jeffro: Good gosh, man, this is so tedious. Please… just stop.

Urbanski: Look, man. I’ve been in cults. I’ve even started cults. I know all about cults, dawg. AND YOU’RE RUNNING A CULT!

Jeffro: ??!

Some of the comments have been quite entertaining. This one is my favorite:

I’m not saying that the way he’s talking about wouldn’t be fun, but most of us don’t have that time, but the one thing that he said that irked me was that Gygax’s imagination was more developed than mine… how the [heck] does this guy know Gygax was more imaginative than me?

Bahhahahha! DIRECT HIT!!!

Anyway, check it out if you dare. It is, as I understand it, rather hard to listen to. About a third of the time is wasted on reading the many execrable comments from the chat.

The fact remains, this is the most important discussion in gaming. RED HOT. People won’t be able to stop talking about this!

    Didn’t bother watching the whole stream. Pundit’s attitude on the BrOSR is too aggravating.

    I was really hoping when you first advertised this that it was more BROSR content on YouTube but then I saw Urbanski was involved and knew it would be a crap show

    The guy HAD to stop you otherwise your discoveries would ruin him financially

    Clicked on the wrong entry when first commented….

    First time I have actually seen or read anything that is about the #BrOSR that was third hand.
    Was interesting for the first half or 2/3rd when there was some discussion on what the ideas were about until it degenerated into the cult calling which did get very boring very quick.

    Pundit didn’t even attempt to comprehend what you said. He was arguing against a retarded strawman the whole time.
