How great is KROMM?

Sometimes it takes an outside voice to tell us these things:

A new convert on KROMM's greatness.

KROMM is so great that He doesn't need to engage in petty squabbles of His believers.

Yes! That's my point exactly.

I have heard it whispered that Rex Grossman once tried to play an RPG game. He was unable to figure out the concept of a game where no one would win and became an Adversarial Player, vexing his GM terribly.

This angered KROMM. His Fury and Vengeance were revealed yesterday.

All hail KROMM.

Their reckoning draweth nigh for mankind, while they turn away in heedlessness.

Never cometh there unto them a new reminder from their KROMM but they listen to it while they play Other Games, with hearts preoccupied.

And they confer in secret. The wrong-doers say: "Is this other than a mortal like you? Will ye then succumb to magic when ye see it?"

He saith: "My Lord KROMM knoweth what is spoken in the heaven and the earth. He is the Hearer, the Knower."

They cried: "Alas for us! we were wrong-doers."

And this their crying ceased not till We made them as reaped corn, extinct.

We created not the heaven and the earth and all that is between them in play. If We had wished to find a pastime, We could have found it in His presence - if We ever did.

Nay, but We hurl the true against the false, and it doth break its head and lo! it vanisheth. And yours will be woe for that which ye ascribe unto Him.

Unto Him belongeth whosoever is in the heavens and the earth. And those who dwell in His presence are not too proud to worship Him, nor do they weary;

They glorify Him night and day; they flag not.

Or have they chosen other Game Designers from the Earth who raise the dead conventions of gaming and create monstrosities such as F.A.T.A.L. from their rotting carcasses?

If there were therein gods beside KROMM, then verily both (Quebec and the Earth) had been disordered. Glorified be KROMM, the Lord of the Throne, from all that they ascribe unto Him.

He will not be questioned as to that which He doeth, but they will be questioned.

For be it known that Kromm is God, and Icelander is His Prophet!

I acknowledge KROMM only as the Prophet of STEVE JACKSON, High Lord of GURPS, defeater of F.A.T.A.L. so I don't see any need to acknowledge Icelander as more than a high priest, along the lines of Thulsa Doom.

KROMM is a god of the SJGames Holy Pantheon, of which STEVE JACKSON is the Chief Deity. KROMM is the HOLY TROUBLESHOOTER and therefore chief among the Gods which STEVE JACKSON commands.

I still frown upon your intended prophetization of a lawyer. The problem is, if Our Lord frowns upon rules lawyers, which are a special subspecies of munchkin, there should be at least a slight dislike of lawyers.

Just my eight cents short of a dime

By this logic, Our Lord KROMM should dislike rules as well. We know this not to be true and are thus forced to conclude that your logic is flawed.

And incidentally, munchkins and rules lawyers are not the same species (although they may be able to interbreed, the resulting offspring would probably be sterile). And munchkins enjoy the favour of KROMM.

It is Adversarial Players that he detests, not players who delight in high-powered adventures. Such Adversarial Players are often Rules Lawyers; but care must be taken not to fall into the fallacy of assuming that all Rules Lawyers are Adversarial Players.
