NTRPG Con 2016 - Beware The Tavern Keeper and the Selfie Stick

I've had a blast the last two NTRPG Cons. Rach and I have met with, ate with, drank with and gamed with more friends than I can ever count. So I was surprised when a fairly prominent blogger and social media butterfly accused me of having as much fun as a rock and speaking with no one but my wife. Sure, I happened to not cross paths with the person in question (although she was stalking me it seems) but I'm sure that has nothing to do with the sour grapes thrown in my direction.

To make a certain point that can only be made with pictures and to ensure I have pictographic memories for years to come, your Tavern Keeper will be armed with a selfie stick for his smart phone.

Yes, you too can be immortalized at Tenkar's Tavern for a lifetime to come.

Of course, if I happen to not actually see you, we probably won't actually converse and therefore a selfie would not happen.

So, forewarned is forearmed. I will be taking pics with friends and colleagues. These pictures will be posted at The Tavern. Because this rock needs to be immortalized in pictures ;)

  2. My plan is to photo-bomb you constantly for four days now.

  3. Ah the Fembot. Those bots can be annoying.

  4. The selfie stick might help to get a decent shot of the table when you're playing, too.

  5. What does that dig at Stacy have to do with your post about selfie sticks? I honestly don't care about your beef with her, but man, it gets tiresome hearing about it every-time you mention North Texas. Jesus Christ dude, get over it. It's like a high school lunchroom in here sometimes.

    1. I'm not really aware of this beef but I think the stick says he is going to do better at getting pictures taken at the Con so he can prove he is more fun than a rock? I'm just guessing here though..

    2. I get that much. Just saying that incessant passive aggressive sniping is unnecessary.

    3. It wasn't just an attack on me and my wife (the wife part pissed me off) but on Merle and NTRPG Con itself. The fact that she did it on a thread I was blocked on (but she has me blocked on top of that) pissed me off even more.

      Attacks on Frank and Tim in recent months because they also run "All Ladies" games rubbed the sore.

      But as I stated in an earlier post, she needs technical help with Contessa and men may now apply. Maybe she's coming around.

      As an aside, never attack or belittle my wife. You'll make an enemy for life. And I'm not talking about myself...

    4. Oh, and Jason, just as a side note. Passive aggressive is attacking someone but actually blocking them from seeing the attack. Stacy is always welcome to post in the comments here. I don't block. I hardly moderate and I certainly don't moderate slights against myself.

      Stacy chose her method to make her slights against me, my wife, Merle and NTRPG Con last year. She made her attacks and then refused to answer any comments made in response.

      She's a big girl. She can take care of herself. She's made it perfectly clear she does not need White Knights to defend her.

    5. I get that you didn't like her posts. She had some hot takes. This is the internet,man. It's full of hot takes. Don't take it personally, and don't get all internet tough guy about it. All this bullshit just makes you look petty.

    6. Erik was quite active with chatting with people. I was one of the various people he hung out with. Even made my wife feel comfortable sitting at the table. Its a sad state when that little fembot is all made, because he didnt see her.

      And Erik, she's not coming around, she's just desperate. She's realized that being stupid, just doesn't work.

    7. Also, are you saying I'm white knighting? I'm just tired of reading about your petty personal squabble with her every-time North Texas is even brought up. That's my beef. It's tiresome and trite.

    8. Jason - my soapbox, my pettiness.

      Fuck man, my wife is legally blind and this asshole makes a negative comment about her constantly being at my side?

      Refers to Merle Rausmussen as a "dirty old man" when his wife sat at the all girls Top Secret session my wife was in?

      Stacy wants attention. She want's to be regarded as an authority on Women in Gaming. The problem is with her attacks, she destroys more than she builds.

      Have I fucked up in the gaming world? Many a time. Have I apologized? Many a time. Right here at The Tavern. I have no problem swallowing pride and admitting when I've done wrong.

      Fuck, just ask Vince. Our getting to know each other was a pissing match at The Tavern where I was mostly in the wrong.

      Stacy never apologizes. She's a crusader, and those wrongly attacked are simply casualties in the way of her goal. It's sad, really.

    9. No, I said she doesn't need White Knights. I should have also mentioned she doesn't need "dirty old white men", which she has used to dismiss many of the Old Guard from TSR.

      She can fight her own battles. White males need not apply (her words, not mine)

      Delete
    10. LOL we had some interesting battles, you old bastard. And fret not, the Fembot is just jealous of what you and Rach have, which she does not.

      Delete
    11. Obviously you DO care about his beef with her or you wouldn't even have commented on it with your disingenuous "honestly " remark

      Delete
    12. Yep you got me. All an elaborate ruse on my part. You're too smart to fool.

      Delete
    13. Jason, maybe you've been fooling yourself. You were the first one to mention Stacey by name. There has been more discussion about her in this thread of comments YOU started than the the original post and other comments combined. If your goal really was to have Stacey discussed less then you've failed. You might consider that publicly telling people to effectively "shut up!" about a topic often has the opposite effect. I'm starting to wonder if you're actual goal was to stir up even more discussion about Stacey.

  6. I'll be taking photos as well. Heck, we might as well get folks to round up & share their photos. Screw selfie-sticks, just get a hold of the pics other folks take.
