LaNasa - Playing with the OSR Since at Least October, 2020

For those that think the current TSR drama is something new, I picked this gem from The Tavern vaults (original post here from October 17th, 2020)

Notice that LaNasa never answers the question about whether or not the museum is a Not-For-Profit. He does say that the donation idea is a "very good idea". 

Very good idea,Anyone can pay money to game anywhere and everyone does to some extent.The whole purpose here is to allow DMS to make money for their skills.Conventions pay nothing and at most gives out free rooms an snacks. We are different and secondly we are the original TSR dungeon hobby shop location The only one in the whole world. To game in Gary’s very office is a bucket list item to some. But if you can’t afford it like old Tenkar you might want to befriend a old TSR employee so you can game free !

He lets the reader draw their own conclusions, much like he's doing with TSR right now. He throws out just enough that the reader unwittingly fills in the blanks.

Then, he accuses me of editing his comment. 

I just had the Tenkar edit my response what a joke he is. I said if you can’t afford gaming at the DHS like Tenkar obviously can’t . You might want to make a TSR employee as friend to get you into the game for free!!

Blogger does not give that option to site owners, but I could delete his comments. Obviously, I did neither. But the accusation is important along with the mocking of yours truly because it's simply a distraction from the question being asked: Is the Dungeon Hobby Shop Museum a not-for-profit?

I ask the question yet again. His response is pure classic LaNasa (as we've recently seen on social media as TSR and/or Dungeon Hobby Shop Museum):

It’s ok Tenkar keep throwing stones. It really shows how jealous you really are it’s ok keep it up very becoming of you. Do you know how many people can’t stand to listen to you anymore.Your ship is sinking and I understand now it’s you screaming for help.

Avoidance. Distraction. Insults. But never answers. It's literally LaNasa's Method of Operation. I'm not making it up. Ignore the insults, the labels, and the dismissiveness he has shown to the gaming community over the past two weeks and look for what's missing. Answers. Simply Answers. Justin has none, so he throws up some flack to rile people up and fight amongst themselves and they forget what they were there for initially.

Answers. Simply. Answers.

The Emperor has no clothes. That is the simple answer.

The arguing back on forth on whether or not TSR is toxic is a distraction from the simple fact that TSR has nothing to offer but rebranded Dollar Tree Dice, empty promises, and abandoned TMs

  1. Decent intentions destroyed by absolutely terrible execution. This is why you never engage in a land war in china or argue online with anyone.

  2. I don’t have a dog in this fight. In rapid succession I’ve gone from being excited to hear about a new edition of Star Frontiers, to being disappointed by some ugly public comments from somebody that I’d previously had no reason not to like and respect, and finally, to being 100% over the ‘new TSR’ and its constant drone about cancel culture and wokism. Just let it go, people. Stop defending the indefensible. Stop acting like your own controversial comments and defiant in-your-face response to those you slighted is some sort of heroic stand against those who would oppress you. More than anything, though, please stop doubling down on nastiness which has me kind of ambivalent about a new edition of Star Frontiers now. Do you not see how you’re driving people away? Sincerely.

  3. Wow, sad that he needs to drag others down and disparage your character to deflect questions. As has been rightly stated, that type of behavior lends credence to all skepticism directed his way.

    Needless to say, you are not 'sinking'. You are a great clearinghouse for OSR news, and thought.

  4. Can you please clarify the bit about the rezoning...did they actually remodel and set up the house, in a residential zone, as a for profit museum. PRIOR to getting the site rezoned? REALLY?

  5. I saw the video stream.

    If I understood correctly, there were two motions that sought to change the zoning of the Gygax house so that the second floor can be a residence for a "manager". This includes the allocation of a parking space for the resident.

    They were not specific of who the zoning was for, LaNasa never spoke, and the motions were passed unanimously without debate.

    1. Thanks David! So, merely additions on to whatever other zoning changes were needed, obviously done much earlier.
