Title: That's Not Pork
Post by: Bailey on January 14, 2002, 02:23:23 PM
Just read the article at the WickedPress website and saw that he picked out my review of L5R as an example of "what's wrong with reviewers."

At first I thought he must have paraphrased.  He must have put words in my mouth.  My MOUTH!

But then I checked out's archives and found the review I had written.  So in response to John's attack on my ability as a reviewer I have to make my impassioned rebuttal.

"I must've been high"  That review was a freakish anomally written when mind altering occupied much more of my time than playing rolegames.  I also had an abysmal gaming group which tended to color reviews of the games I did play at that time.  I didn't even get John's name right in the "author" section of the review.  I still have some issues with L5R, but thety are now completely different and not game breaking.

I'm sorry John.  Please forgive me.

We all get high and post weird things every once in a while.

Speaking from experience,

Title: nice

Someone who humbly admits he was wrong in a open forum. The end of the world must be near. Next thing I`ll hear people saying apologizing is not for sissies and intellectual honesty is right...

thumbs up Bailey

Really, go look at the review I wrote.  It was the worst review I've seen and I can't have any excuse for it.  I didn't even get John Wick's name right.  That should say something.  I was a hard core user and only dug Changling, not that the two are related.

Now I use the L5R system for all my fantasy gaming and own a copy of Orkworld.
