Earlier today I was browsing a thread on TMP where advocates of Patton and Montgomery got into a deranged slanging match over their preferred arrogant blowhard of WWII. At least one correspondent appeared to be as much a prima donna as his hero, although probably without any matching military talent.

Although Napoleonics were my first love, I generally avoid the Napoleonics boards to avoid pointless quarrels.

Tournament gamers of any stripe have a bad reputation, although I've found many of them to be thoroughly decent fellows once the dice have stopped rolling.

Myself, I prefer the almost always affable company of colonialists, VSF players and pulpsters. You almost never hear anyone demanding to see the original German archives concerning Tarzan.

POLL DESCRIPTION

Personal logo John the OFM Supporting Member of TMP opines:

I would like to see a poll topic on who we perceive to be the friendliest group of players.

Personal logo Der Alte Fritz Sponsoring Member of TMP started a topic on 18th Century gamers, and how well mannered we are.

Lee Brilleaux Fezian came out with a Pulp scenario book that can be used for several different rules systems. I have noticed that the authors appear in each other's discussion groups, and get along quite well.

Victorial Science Fiction (VSF) afficianados are also cross-rules supportive. There is no warfare between GASLIGHT and Space 1889 players.

Then, there are the 15mm WWII gamers...

And Napoleonic discussers...

In the words of that great philosopher Rodney King, "Why can't we all just get along as well as the Pulp guys and the lace and wig guys?"
