Breyland Notes: The Magic Space Aryan Racial Purity Scale

Just another world building article to help me collect my thoughts. This one started out as a joke but then went into much more serious territory than I originally planned to cover…but since they are going to call me a Nazi anyway.

The Magic Space Aryan Racial Purity Scale

Master Race

Almost Master Race

Proper White Devil

Pretty Damn White

Ethnically Enhanced Pseudo-Caucasian

Still Sorta White

Brownish

Generic Brown Olive Person

Browner Than Usual

Suspiciously Black

Suitable for Picking Cotton

Too Black to Give a Fuck

 

One of the more interesting things about playing around in the Breylandverse is the complete lack of political correctness and trying to figure out how ordinary people would act when placed in such a complex swirling ball of chaos as Early Restoration Breyland.

The above scale is barracks humor that originated among the NCOs of the Sector Guard (Colonial Sepoy Infantry) and Paramilitary Police (PMP often referred to pimps.) The joke however rapidly took on a life of its own and spread throughout the military and merchant marine as it almost perfectly captures, mocks and attempts to reconcile the racial politics that occurs through the Breylandic military and a large proportion of the colony worlds.

Magic Space Aryan is a mocking term* used to describe Ethnic Breylanders (particularity arrogant government officials.) It works as rhetoric on two fronts; first while Breylanders are a distinctly ‘white race’ some of their subject worlds are even more ‘European’ and attacking their sense of racial superiority by pointing out that they are not completely white can severely rattle some individuals. The other aspect is calling out the contrast between Golden Age Breyland Left-Libertarian traditions and the vicious reality of what their descendants have to do in order to keep their unstable multi-ethnic empire from collapsing. This the Beautiful Terror, the constant back and forth dissonance as Breyland struggles to restore its own lost cultural legacy while having to come to terms with having an Empire that the people (and a large segment of the new regime) do not want; yet dare not get rid of. At the end of the day Breyland finds itself occupying a large number of world simply to deny them to their enemies.

The view from the colonies is much different and a strange vague form of Civic Nationalism is beginning to arise. The Loyal Barbarians are getting very angry at the Disloyal Barbarians who are ruining a good thing**. While many of these worlds have little which to negotiate with the central government; they have the blood of their soldiers. These population are also hopeful for the future and prefer to take their chances under the Beautiful Terror then to risk the tender mercies of the New Ganymede Confederacy or the chaos and barbarism of the sort of Pirate Kingdoms that are likely to form in the event of a complete collapse.

As more and more sepoys die in the service of Breyland the blood debt grows but that debt of honor can only be paid back if Breyland survives. The chaos must end. The pirates must be eliminated. Order must be restored. Nations, Tribes, Empires all of it comes down men who must do their duty. One man at a time. One duty at time. One war at a time. Breyland will survive but at what cost?

Zulumeme.jpg

In hindsight Brothers In The Dust is actually more of a Zulu War scenario than an Iraq or Vietnam analogy… just need to grab one story and tell it.

* In case any of you were wondering why I sometimes refer to my readers as such.

**Breyland also charges its colonies and occupied worlds far less in taxes than the Confederates do. So at least some of this phony patriotism is purely economic in nature.

The War For The Heart Of Geekdom: What Can You Do?

Still Sperging About Milkshakes

Well it looks like this thing is not going away as just recently a flood of “Geeks are Bad” articles started popping up in pretentious Fake Geek Media sites nobody actually reads. What does this mean? It means that Marvel went ahead and hired a PR firm in order to damage control. Milkshake Madness continues but it’s not really fooling anyone.

yepprfirm.jpg

Seeing a lot of new faces around these parts. That’s good. Also I see some of you brought flamethrowers. At least somebody’s been thinking ahead.

burnitdownpooh.jpg

Welcome to The War For the Heart of Geekdom. Where while we might not be able to control the ‘Tism we can damn well ride it into battle.

Newcomers? Well what’s the first step?

You need to begin ACTIVELY LOOKING FOR ALTERNATIVES to the thing you once liked that used to be good. This will take a lot of effort so you need to start doing it now.

Since the new guys are mostly Comicbros the Patriotika Kickstarter is probably the first thing we should bring up. Even it’s too late to contribute, this is a good example of the sort of thing you need to be actively looking for. You don’t have to support every project but make sure you are actively search for independent un-pozzed media. Step two is spreading the word when you do find something promising. Even if you don’t like something your homies might. How are they supposed to find out about all this cool shit if you don’t tell them about it?

Patriotika [10 mins]

And it’s immediately apparent that there are at least two very good reasons to support this comic.

 

Or this thing. This is a thing. Is it your thing? Only you can make that decision. Not your thing? Well find other things. If you don’t like a thing, just keep moving on to the next thing. If you look hard enough you will find your thing. Go now and find your things. Things are there to be found.

and it doesn’t hurt to branch out a little here and there. You do realize that a huge number of the old pulp magazines have been archived and put up online, right? That #Pulprev thing is happening for a reason.

The Pulp Magazine project

http://www.pulpmags.org/

So go read something from the 1930’s.

Back when men were men and not only would a woman actually make you a sandwich she would travel great distances; punching bears and tigers along the way in order to bring you that very same sandwich.

You wanna make comics great again? 1930’s style pulp stories told by 1990’s style art is probably the winning combination. Even normies would be all over that shit.

The point I’m trying to make here that we’re big boys now and we don’t need no mouse to entertain us. Yes it will take a lot of work to get anything worthwhile done… but look at it this way. If you were a whiny crybaby bitch you’d still be on the other team, wouldn’t you? We got this bro. We just need to put in the asschairhours. Welcome to the Cult of Life. It’s time to face down the Cults of Death.

But Rome wasn’t built in a day.” you sperg.

Yes but Rome was built in the first place.” I sperg back. “We know that it can done because it done before therefore we can do it again. Why let mere difficultly deter us from a righteous cause?”

Anyway enough ranting, down to business.

Indie Author Jon Del Arroz gives his take on Marvel Milkshake Madness

http://delarroz.com/?p=1303

Yes he has a steampunk novel out. Complete with airships.

http://bit.ly/forsteamandcountry

Yes the main character is named Zaira von Monocle.

That’s just how we roll in these parts. Did you come here to have fun or not?

 

No Escapism Allowed.

http://www.threedonia.com/archives/5943

Speaking about having fun. It’s not what SJW Marvel has in mind.

 

DAMN YOU POE’S LAW!!! [10 mins]

Either way this video is dangerous to your sides. So put your drink down before you watch. Unless you have a spare keyboard handy and want to live dangerously.

 

Diversity and Comics [16 mins]

A lot of rambling about one of his ongoing projects in this one but there’s still a couple key points worth mentioning.

-Secret Empire is failing so hard that Marvel should be in crisis mode.

-The “milkshake gambit” was a tactic to make the fake geek girls assistant editors unfireable.

hyruletrampstamp.jpg

Quick Note: Fake Geek Girl is less of a lifestyle and more of a dating strategy. Usually a very successful one but that’s another topic for another day.

 

Captain Cummings on the imminent failure of Marvel Generations [12 mins]

Not only that but Marvel is engaging in fake accounting when it comes to their sales numbers and unfairly dumping the load on comic retailers.

Marvelstrongarm

Yes and apparently Games Workshop is pulling the same kind of shit.

 

So anyway that’s all I got for tonight. I’ll leave you with one final question. Who would you rather be?

This Guy

Sardovonlardo.jpg

or this guy?

That’s a #pulprev story right there.

#AltGeek the choice is yours. Choose wisely for you have only last fuck to give.

Social media??? I have no idea why anybody would want to follow me but I’m getting a lot of followers on Gab for some reason. I am slow to follow back but if you talk to me enough times I’ll eventually get curious.

Twitter: Warning! Drunk twitter rants may occur at any time.

https://twitter.com/wolfman977

I do try to keep politics off of Twitter, unfortunately shit keeps pissing me off and I’m under no obligation to keep things professional.

Gab: GET YOUR ASS TO GAB even if it’s just a placeholder account. Froglife is best life.

https://gab.ai/Wolvesandmen

And yes Gab is 90% politics if you don’t like it talk about something else, anything else. If you don’t like the AltRight guys DON’T FUCKING FOLLOW THEM. Personally I like to keep an eye on what the really hardline motherfuckers are saying but that’s my choice.

Nerdstuff —> Twitter   Politics —> Gab

I think that’s a reasonable policy so we’ll try that for a while.

and that’s about it. This shitty blog is kind of my main thing.

Brian Niemeier discusses the difference between the Superversive and the Pulp Revolution literary movements.

http://www.brianniemeier.com/2017/07/superversive-pulprev.html

superversivepulprev.png

I do think it is important to remember that these two movements overlap and are not in direct conflict; even if certain people do seem to get strangely butthurt about it.

I initially supported the Superversive SF movement and I stand by the goal of countering the nihilism and hopelessness that is all pervasive in modern literature and “entertainment.” As for the Pulprev? I have the much better reason that all my cool friends are doing it and putting entertainment back into things that are supposed to be entertaining just seems like a good idea.

Remember if the audience begins to cheer for the bad guys, you either haven’t fleshed out your heroes properly or you may be writing some kind of horrible message fic.

 

An in-depth article about viking shields; from both a historical and a gamer (GURPS) point of view.

https://gamingballistic.com/2017/07/12/vikings-shields-and-game-rules/

Interesting thing about this – a properly made shield, when struck at with a sharp sword, will catch and trap the blade of that sword. Nearly every time. The thinner, the easier this happens, but even with the thicker wood with no rawhide edging, a good shield bind was obtained.”

For some reason Open Office doesn’t like the word ethno-nationalist. The spell checker is instead suggesting the word ethanol-nationalist.

This totally needs to be a thing.

and since I suppose we need a definition

Ethanol-Nationalist: A person who remains silent when sober but quickly becomes patriotic, outspoken and politically incorrect after consuming large amount of alcohol. Typically spotted at sporting events and family BBQs.

Okay I got a bunch of links and a nice quiet peaceful day to collect my thoughts.

Mostly writer, old school tabletop or pulprev links this time. As that is the crowd I’m hanging out with recently (even if I’m not actually getting any writing done.)

So if even for a brief moment let us set aside the tunes of war and play instead the tunes of chill.

When we sit down to crack open a book, we need an escape, even a short one. We do not need more darkness thrown in our face. We need hope. Light. Joy. That is why we need the Pulp Revolution.”

I think that’s a good positive note to end on.

The best of #CNNBlackmail memes [4:20]

 

takemout.jpg

Wow! Did this thing EXPLODE. Absolutely everyone from Sargon of Akkad to Jon Del Arroz (who wrote one of the better essay length responses IMO) is just piling the FUCK ON and pounding CNN as hard and as often as they can. Everyone is memeing! Everyone! And it’s all just so damn FUNNY. It’s like early days of GamerGate all over again but 10x the scale and with no end in sight. Truly this is the best timeline ever.

That said let’s begin:

Nerdlife Five: Just Here For the Catgirls

Nerdlife Five: Just Here For the Catgirls.

Sort of rushing this one but I have enough links for a post and I’m too caffeinated to sleep.

Quick fictional interlude: No idea where I’m going with this…

Zeps or (zeproru in Codteki) were difficult to describe in Terran biology terms. Seiko kept thinking of them as horse-dog-lizard-things. The nekoites had never figured out what planet the zeps came from or even if they were a natural creature at all or perhaps rather a genetically engineered animal creation of a distant alien race still completely unknown to the clans. The strange mammal-like reptiles had quickly become the low tech mount of choice on the rare niche occasions that such animals were called for. Zeps were intelligent, easily trainable and able to eat plants from a half dozen protein profiles. In addition they were tough, loyal to their handlers and had a nasty enough bite to fend off most local predators but their best trait (from the nekoite perspective) was that unlike Earth-horses, they responded well to being cryogenically frozen and could safely be put in storage aboard starships until needed planetside.

Of course getting them off the spaceship wasn’t always easy.

Come on Fluffy. Easy does it,” Seiko crooned as he tried to lead the confused creature down the offramp.

I do see some of this while say playing Aurora 4x (which is about as complicated a game as there is.) Fighters in Aurora are very effective, and extremely cost efficient but I don’t use them because it’s too much micromanagement and I’d rather focus my efforts elsewhere. Player attention span is also a resource in 4x games.
