Long story short, probably a bit off because I wasn't around for that particular drama:Korgeta wrote: ↑2019-09-22 11:45amI never really engaged much with other threads frequently but I have been meaning to ask about that for some time, what exactly did happen to that? Last I checked the status of that nearly everyone was on the hype train for it. I made a comment once that it wasn't great and had Slade took issue with it, and last I heard was some guy in Eastern Europe skewered the possible publication because it was leaked?
Also welcome Bounty, much like you I'm getting back onto this community.
It was some kinda-sorta epic fantasy about Earth versus Heaven and Hell. People who had already liked TBO here liked it; there was definite a milwank phase here on the board... Some kid in Ukraine or whatever pulled most of Salvation War off the Internet and self-published it. For legal reasons, this threw a wrench into Slade's plans to publish it himself. He had something of a meltdown about it and ended up being invited to take an indefinite leave of absence from the board. He ended up founding HPCA, a noxious pit of alt-right sewage, and remains basically persona non grata here.
Most of the right-wing contingent has largely dropped off the board or keep their thoughts to themselves for the most part. Shep rarely posts unless something juicy about gun control or an occasion to drop pointless info-dumps about how fucked up Baltimore is comes up.
