Amazingly, it seems that everyone not present knows exactly what is going on, and jumps to support the guy who decided to vent on a public forum, where they can expect their semi-anonymous post to get support, while insulting someone, instead of venting in private, say, to a friend, or deciding to settle things at the table, so that the only people involved in the events comment on them.
For the record, I do NOT agree with Kingbrendarr on the issue of boons. I was not asked by anyone to chase down RealAlchemy. And in person, I would be more likely to side with RealAlchemy on this issue. But RealAlchemy erred in making this an issue on a public forum, where people who know nothing of the situation see things through a distorted lens, make their own assumptions, make judgments on the people involved, and only add to the problem. And that is why he ended up hurting his own reputation with me, and prompting my comments about disappointment.
Arc, I really appreciated you organizing the special, and giving me a chance to actually play one. I had a lot of fun, but it did affect things the following day, after a lot of travel. I know that I was in a great deal of pain, and short on sleep at the session in question, and at least one of those applied to others as well. It had nothing to do with people leaving one system for another, making your post one of those that I referred to above, and was probably triggered by my comment that I had traded a PFS boon (actually the only one that I had, from GMing PFS at the only convention I had attended previously) for an SFS boon that will, by reports, be obsolete in a few months. That brought up the matter of boons in the discussion.
In general, I feel that these sorts of rants are not productive on a public forum, and I would ask that RealAlchemy consider whether it would be best to ask the moderators to remove the entire thing.
