OGRE house rules

OGRE is the first game published by Steve Jackson.  If you're not familiar with his name, he's the publisher of the Munchkin card games.  OGRE is now 40 years old, and still a good game.  Yes, it is a two player war game, using turns and a combat results table.  It's dated, but still a gem.

I am a proud Grognard.  I simply cannot leave rules sets alone.  So, here are my favorite house rules for OGRE.

A GEV class vehicle over open water which receives a "Disable" combat result is destroyed instead.  It sinks to the bottom when the fans stop running.

That's it, really.  OGRE is nearly perfect as-is.

That being said, I do have my own set of rules for playing OGRE with unit qualities.  Each side has a quality - Untrained (1), Green (2), Seasoned (3), Veteran (4), Elite (5).  Ogres don't have unit quality, as they are practically perfect in every way as they are.

Unit quality comes into play when a unit is disabled.  A disabled unit which takes a further 'disable' combat result makes a quality check.  If it passes, it survives.  If it fails, it is destroyed as normal.

Unit quality also comes into play for recovering Disabled units.  Instead of recovering at the beginning of the second turn after being disabled, they make a quality check at the end of each of their own turns.  If they pass, they recover.  If they fail, they remain disabled.

Unit quality also applies to disabling checks for GEVs in woods, for vehicles getting stuck in a swamp, and for recovering from being stuck.

Unity quality also applies in overrun combat.  The unit with the higher morale shoots first, with defenders winning ties.


If you want to make Ogres even deadlier, more like the Bolos they are inspired by, simply have them fire in the enemy's combat phase.  Defending Ogres should fire first, of course.

In war, moderation is no virtue

We, as you may have noticed, are engaged in a cold civil war for our nation.  Not just America, but all the white peoples of the world.  There are forces among us who wish nothing less than our utter destruction and dissolution.  They do not attack us directly with swords or guns or bombs.  They can not, for militarily, we are mighty.  Instead, they attack us through our weak points - our culture of inclusivity and acceptance.

The culture wars have reached a boiling point, and the cold war is warming up.  There have been fights in the streets, and riots.  In each case, our enemies have initiated the first use of force.  They have been intimidating us for generations.  We, the normal people who love our nation, have finally had enough.  The loud-mouthed midget who would be our oppressor has poked us in the eye just a few too many times, and we are tired of it.  It is time we stood up to our full height, and showed the weak and cowardly left our true strength.

Canada's Prime Minister Trudeau famously said that your enemies win when you kill them.  He is deluded.  Your enemies die when you kill them.  They no longer attack you, your children, your spouses, your churches, your country, or your nation after they die.

We have held out tongues and turned the other cheek as small minded zealots have offended and struck us over and over, repeating their actions for scores of years.  So-called "moderates" stand aside and allow our enemies to flourish, while holding our fists behind us, preventing us from striking back at our foes in righteous anger.

The cold civil war has grown hot.  There are no longer any moderates - there can be no moderation in war.  There are only combatants and noncombatants.  When you join in the conflict, you choose a side to support, and a side to oppose.  Moderates attack us more often than they attack out opponents.  That makes moderates a third faction, allied to our deadly enemies.

We must not mistake moderates as noncombatants.  By entering into the fray, they take up arms against us.  They are, at best, quisling traitors to be purged from our ranks.  Anyone who says "lay down your arms and apologise for fighting those who want to kill you" can not be seen as anything other than base traitors.

Do not forget that we fight not just for ourselves, but for the future existence of our people and our culture.  Judge your actions carefully, for most people have not yet awoken to the reality of the existential conflict of these times.  We still need converts and recruits from among the masses of noncombatants.  Remember that Big Brother is always watching, and will always scramble your words to his will, and will show your actions without context.  We must document our actions and proactively show the truth.  We need our own journalists to counter enemy propaganda proactively - live-stream events as they happen.  Edit recordings to show conflicts and actions in the best light for us, as our enemies will certainly do so to discredit us.

Never lie - our enemies lie constantly and continuously, and truth is our greatest weapon and recruiting tool.

Never trust strangers - our enemies are legion, and lie in every word and deed.  They have spent the last century worming their way into organizations and infiltrating groups.  Judge them by their actions and their private words, not their public proclamations of good faith.

Ben Garrison cartoons

If you don't know about Ben Garrison's cartoons, check them out.  Here are a few.

A is A

In order for there to be individual freedom and liberty, there must first exist a society in which individuals are self reliant, self controlled, and responsible.  In a society in which people must be controlled, liberty must be diminished so that the irresponsible majority do not destroy the society, the nation, the infrastructure, and ultimately themselves.  Don't believe me?  Go look up what happened in Albania in the 1990's.

 If men are to have the right to life, liberty, and property, they must exist in a greater society that values and protects these precious things.  If this necessary precondition does not exist, no amount of wishful thinking and happy thoughts will cause it to become so.

So, individual liberties may, indeed must, to some degree be constrained in order to create a society in which these ideals may flourish.  In time of war, one does not have the right to object to and obstruct those defending one's own homeland.  We can disagree on tactics, strategies, methods and means, but the existence of the war itself is without question.  We can fight, because we must.

Free men need no chains, but chained men can not enjoy freedom until the chains are removed.  Soldiers for a cause must submit to discipline for the cause to have any hope of success, even if their cause is liberty.

A is A, and not-A is not and never will be A.

American society is white, northwestern European society.  We are the descendants of the British and Germans, with a smattering of other compatible cultures.  We are Christians, and though we may disagree on dogma and ritual, we recognize Christ as our only King.  We speak English, although it is the peculiar American variety, with its regional dialects and accents.  We believe in the free market, and find communism and socialism to be abhorrent on both moral and practical grounds.  We believe that men and women are different and complimentary, just as God created us.  We believe that only homogeneous societies survive, as all of history has shown us.  We believe that diversity is not our strength, but a fatal disease which our enemies are deliberately attempting to inflict upon us.  We believe that all men are created equal, and then they are born, each separate and unique.  We believe in one law for all, high and middle and low, government and corporate and private.  We believe that women and children must be protected, for they are irreplaceable and the promise of the future.

We believe that we should never start a fight, but always finish one.  This fight started long ago, decades even before I was born.  It will continue long after I am dust.  Only by not fighting can we lose.

After all, it is said that the Devil's greatest trick lies in making people believe that he doesn't even exist.

From an away game

A comment I posted at Intellectual Takeout, in their article on the philosophical history of the alt-right.  http://www.intellectualtakeout.org/blog/alt-rights-intellectual-roots-go-way-back

Bottom line - the article's author obviously confuses any opponent of the left with nazis and fascists.  Because those are totes obvs the only choices.  Or something.

---

The Alt-Right stands in direct contrast to the Control-Left. However, where conservatism, inc. has failed due to multiple causes, the alt-right is succeeding because it is a reality based movement. The root philosophy of the alt-right is that there is such a thing as objective reality, and men must live and deal with reality as it is, not how one might wish it to be.
The reality is that only homogeneous societies are stable. A nation is defined as a people with a shared language, culture, religion, and history. Multiculturalism is a direct affront to this simple, common sense understanding. A is A, and not-A is not, and never will be A. One can not mix poison with food and call the lethal mixture a rational compromise.
We are in a war for survival. Our deadly enemies want to destroy us, root and branch. They attack physically and morally - striking at both genes and memes. The culture war is a real war, and has been so for the left for decades. The right has simply ignored the approaching threat, with conservative leaders choosing to roll over and show their bellies to keep their well paid jobs.
Conservatism has failed to conserve a single thing. Not marriage, not the rest room, not Christianity, not the English language, not even the idea of a nation. Conservatism, inc, is indistinguishable from a paid arm of the control-left, like the Washington Generals to the Harlem Globetrotters.
This is a war for the survival of our people, our nation, our culture, our lives. Any weapon which our enemies finds good to use against us is good to use against them. We will not stop. We must not stop, for the alternative the left offers us is death and utter destruction.

Meetup screws up!

Meetup was a somewhat useful way to find like-minded people in my area.  Until today.
Today, I got a message from Meetup that they're couldn't just stand aside and be a neutral tool for all sides.  No, they had to get involved, and create #Resist groups for every state, and join everybody into those groups.

I deleted my Meetup account.

Here's a copy of the email I got from the filthy hippy fascists.


Meetup has always served as an organizing platform for a wide range of political views, welcoming everyone from the Howard Deaniacs to the Tea Party. Meetup will always welcome people with different beliefs.

But after the recent executive order aimed to block people on the
basis of nationality and religion, a line was crossed. At a time when core democratic ideals feel under attack, we feel a duty to spark more civic participation.

Last week, we created 1,000+ #Resist Meetup Groups to act as local hubs for actions on behalf of democracy, equality, human rights, social justice, and sustainability. Already 50,000+ people have joined.

These #Resist Meetups are open to anyone who want to create a bright future that's rich with opportunity and freedom for all.

Meetup exists to connect people so they create opportunity and make the world they want. We hope members take these Meetups forward to be powerful together.

What is it with Democrats and blocking schoolhouse doors?

 And a Democratic National Committee leader (chief of the "Trump war room") approved of violence to prevent the Secretary of Education from entering a public school in Washington, DC.
