“Dungeon Degenerates is a fantasy adventure board game from Goblinko. Blending a Dark & Dirty Old School role playing game aesthetic with an easy to learn, fast-moving & engaging board game system, Dungeon Degenerates delivers the dark fantasy adventure you want, when you want it. Players choose between four adventuring Degenerates who have been imprisoned for various crimes of survival. As they make their way out of Brüttelberg into the decaying Eastern provinces of the Würstreich they must find their way, taking on strange & dangerous adventures & fighting against the corruption & decadence that have set into the land. Monsters, cultists, witches, demons & wizards have taken advantage of the rot & are encroaching on civilization. As if that wasn’t enough, the Necromancer’s Hand of Doom points down on the land & disrupts the natural order with Hellish resolve.”

The kickstarter for Sean Äaberg’s Dungeon Degenerates board game started yesterday and in that time it has amassed 25 of its 35 thousand goal, so it’s safe to say this thing is getting made.

long story short:

i had heard of pork magazine via tumblr a year or two ago, namely via some style bloggers who wore pins and cool shit from the mag. i kinda dug the aesthetic, but didn’t really look more into it. i flipped through a few issues i came across in a store but it’s not like i had a subscription or anything.

this changed last summer.

july 2011: pork magazine published some photos of a “cowboys and indians” photoshoot, featuring white folks dressed up as - you guessed it - stereotypical cowboys and indians. worse still, one of the people dressed up as an “indian” is swigging back hard liquor (as if we didn’t have enough bullshit propagating the stereotype of native people = drunks). some people involved in the photoshoot have a pretty big online following more around fat positive politics, so most critical folks involved in that community were totally caught off guard by this blatantly racist photoshoot.

then, the reaction to criticisms and comments saying “hey white folks you might want to think twice before putting on a headdress and playing dressup this way” was even worse than the photoshoot itself, if you can believe it.

fatpeopleofcolor wrote this great rundown of the situation if you want more details and links.

march 2012: made these “pork army” membership cards using nazi imagery. white folks reblog saying “sign me up, mein fuhrer.” haha! so funny, right?

april 2012: people point out that even with all of this behind us, some fat-positive blogs are still celebrating the people who have yet to be held accountable for participating in a racist photoshoot and very publicly aligning themselves with a publication that prides itself on using offensive imagery, racist language, and saying “fuck off” to anyone who disagrees with them.

and that, unfortunately, is why people are still talking about this shit almost a year later.

personally, i have directly contacted the editor of the magazine and some of the people i saw very publicly associating themselves with pork magazine who i had otherwise thought were cool dudes. sean responded quickly and respectfully enough, but we clearly disagree on the basics. i prefer that to the radio silence i got from people who still get lauded as “amazing babes.” there is ZERO accountability here and ZERO reason to support an independent magazine that is completely unapologetic about any criticisms that it uses violent racist imagery and language.

and hey, what a lovely ironic surprise: here, founder of PORK sean aaberg writes about his boner for gavin mcinnes, cofounder of vice, about his love for the t-shirt “the last of the white niggers.”

enough said.

DUNGEON DEGENERATES - HAND OF DOOM - FANTASY ADVENTURE BOARD GAME

THE DUNGEON DEGENERATES KICKSTARTER LAUNCHES ON OCTOBER 11TH.

“It looks a bit mad that - excellent!” - Rick Priestley, author of Warhammer Fantasy Battle, Warhammer 40K & the Lord of the Rings Strategy Battle Game

“Horrid!” - John Blanche, Gothic Punk, dark fantasy artist extraordinaire & Games Workshop Art Director upon meeting the authors of Dungeon Degenerates

“I’m always excited to see what Sean Äaberg is up to because I know it will have his insistent Independently minded energy & attitude! I love that I can finally get my RPG fix infused with Punk energy & Sean’s incredible illustrations! Can’t wait to play! NOW DEGENERATE IN FRONT OF MY EYES!” - Skinner, artist sorceror

“As a dungeon dwelling degenerate, Dungeon Degenerates is a game that speaks to me & my needs. Namely, my need to pretend I’m anywhere but Creepsylvania & anyone but me.” - Digestor, Ghoul

“Listen up weirdos, nerds, outlaws & trolls, true adventure awaits you! Finally, a game so terrifying that it will unravel your DNA, so brutal it will give you night sweats, so fun you’ll think you’re on LSD running wild in the streets with no pants. PREPARE…” - Orion Landau, art director - Relapse Records

IN A LAND WHERE ROT RULES, ONLY THE DEGENERATES SURVIVE!

The Würstreich - an Empire in decline, where survival is an adventure unto itself. Once the pinnacle of human civilization, it now teeters on the brink of Total Doom, having collapsed into corruption, decadence, decay & madness. Evil Wizards pervert the very fabric of nature, bringing gibbering madness from beyond screaming into absolution & an endless menagerie of monsters fight for domination! In chaos - there is opportunity! The fecund stench of the Rotten Realm of the Würstreich beckons! Having escaped from the moldy dungeons of Brüttelberg, your Degenerate Adventurers must use wits & weapons to find their fortune in the monster & madness infested badlands - fate decided by the luck of the draw & the roll of the dice! In a land where rot rules, only the Degenerates survive! As if degeneration & decay weren’t enough, the shadowy Necromancer’s Hand of Doom points its yellowed fingernail & projects its diabolical decree on the cursed land!     

RETRO ROLE PLAYING GAME FEEL IN A COOPERATIVE DARK FANTASY BOARD GAME!

METAL PUNKS FROM THE STREETS OF OAKLAND!

Dungeon Degenerates is by Sean Äaberg & Eric Radey. Childhood partners in crime who grew up on oldschool role-playing & war games & love old Games Workshop products in particular - as an art form. They grew up playing Call of Cthulhu games run by Charlie Crank. They worked for Chaosium as warehouse slaves. They were in the most chaotic Noise Metal Punk band in Oakland & played ritualistic shows trying to summon demons & hordes of rats. They know that the old ways are best & they are going to drain enough blood to bring them back with Dungeon Degenerates!   

BOLD, LOW-BROW, RETRO ROLE-PLAYING WEIRDO ART!

The Dungeon Degenerates aesthetic is culled from an enormous heap of yellowing paper, old Dragon & White Dwarf magazines, Underground Comix artists like Robert Crumb & S. Clay Wilson, blacklight posters, Conan the Barbarian comics, pinball art, Punk & Metal zines & Heavy Metal records, pickled in cider & smoked. Sean Äaberg has been devoted to pushing older Weirdo Art forms back into the public consciousness for a decade, teaching art & publishing PORK Magazine. Dungeon Degenerates is lavishly illustrated with thousands of drawings by Sean Äaberg.

THE DUNGEON DEGENERATES KICKSTARTER LAUNCHES ON OCTOBER 11TH!

We will be running our Kickstarter in the form of a Dungeon Degenerates Adventure! As each stretch goal is approached & met - backers will get to go through an actual Dungeon Degenerates Adventure that we have played. Card draws & outcomes will be written as a Choose Your Own Adventure type story & there will be backer polls to decide how the adventure unfolds! Here is the opener…

There’s nothing to eat in the filthy town of Pigskin Port. The curse of the Rye Wizard has blighted the grain & the pigs are infected with a poisonous fungus. Out here on the edge of the Würstreich, you don’t have anywhere else to run. You’ve escaped your life as a slave in the fighting pits of Brüttelberg & now you find yourself working for the River Rats. Wally Whisker offered you gold to find a shipment of his that hasn’t arrived on schedule, but you have a feeling the easy money is in the monster meat trade. The River Rats are selling sausages to travellers at a premium & they just need a tough brawler like yourself to head into the Wasteland & haul back a few goblins for processing.

Your travelling companion is a thin & scruffy alchemist who claims to be a veteran of half a dozen military campaigns, but reeks of black powder & alcohol. He introduces you to a contact of his - a shifty-looking woman with a strange collection of objects for sale. The prize of her collection is an ornate box containing the severed head of a soothsayer, preserved by some obscure ritual means. She explains that, when anointed with a certain tincture it will come to life & offer guidance. You tell her that the leather gauntlet wreathed in spikes strapped to your right arm is the only help you will need, & besides you clearly cannot afford such an object. The alchemist purchases a vial of some noxious substance that he claims is genuine daemon’s blood. The smell of it burns your nostrils & eyes, so you believe him when he claims it can burn through almost anything.
