On hiatus for now.

 “No politics” was one of the rules I posted on our inclusive, open-for-everyone Free Kriegsspiel Revolution Discord. And then they came, the politically correct “roleplayers” demanding “tolerance” and “inclusion”. Just take a look at their Discord and you’ll see that they’re liars: they’re the intolerant ones, excluding and kicking people for not thinking or saying things their way, or (as not just in my case) for being conservative.

Oh, well.

I’ve written many roleplaying games. I sold the rights for my first roleplaying game when I was 19 years old, and I got a five-figure Deutsche Mark amount for it. I wrote a few gold sellers on drivethru. And I gave away lots and lots and lots of games and gaming content for free. I still am.

But I think my time here on the blog, and my time on online forums is over. I’m sick and tired of being accused by leftist fucks with miserable lives who just can’t stand the idea of someone leading a normal, average, Joe Sixpack kind of life. 

Those haters have attacked many other conservatives before, painted them into some kind of “right wing roleplayer” corner. They attacked players as old as the hobby, people who I know personally as upright, correct, honest and openhearted and openminded people. 

But the thing is: I have a beautiful family, a good life, people whom I love and who love me back, people I can play games with, and my combatives training (which fulfills me). I don’t need that online forum shit, I just don’t.

So: Darkworm Colt is on hiatus for the foreseeable future now. Goodbye, and thanks for the support.

  1. Eldrad, my friend! I'm sorry. This is the second time I got attacked by those fucks (and I'm not sorry to call them that). First time, it was so bad that I closed my blog for good, taking with it almost 8 years of free content.Now, it has happened for the second time, and I'm not sure I want to go through all that again…Let's stay in touch, brother! You know my email, right?


  2. I feel you buddy. Take a break, get some fresh air, spend time with good people and family and remember that there are tons of people like us that are silent too often because we are off enjoying life and not focusing on the online bullshit world that seems to be their battleground. Gaming is in our blood, it will come calling to you again once you have regained your balance.


  3. I am really sorry, because I have always admired your work and your designs, and I love your Landshut rules. I am sorry too because, even though I identify myself as a Leftist, I still think respecting other people's ideas is paramount. It bothers me enormously that the stupidity of some idiots deprives us of continuing to enjoy your blog. It seems politics ends up dirtying everything it touches 😦


  4. Hey Norbert. I am so sorry to read that, and I totally understand you need to take a break. Sadly, it seems that no online community is safe from virtue-signaling ideologues. Your blog made me discover a whole new gaming world. I never had so much fun playing games with my kids. Take care of yourself and your family. Hope to hear from you again.


  5. Honestly, \”no politics\” is just one of those rules that everyone dislikes, but ultimately leads to a more civil and on-focus discussion. I come from a lib-left background ans railed against no politics rules for the longest time until I realized how political subs always degenerate into personal arguments or civil but organized disavowals or attacks.Calling out other people to show that you have the moral high ground is uncool. Even when you genuinely do (or at least believe yourself to) have the moral high ground.I'll sorely miss your blog presence. It's been a great inspiration to me and played a huge part in reviving my interest in gaming.


  6. I'm sorry to see this happen. Factionalism has been around in gaming for a long time, but the current environment is astonishingly polarized. There is, I get the impression, no room for middle-ground people like you and I. 😦


  7. Ah man, feels like I just discovered this scene and your blog is one of the best.As someone who people would definitely consider a leftist, this sucks to hear. It's a shame that people with bad personalities and social problems can ruin so much community building and good will.Peace man, can only hope you feel like flying the FKR flag online again soon
