    Given that he is one of the most, if not THE most famous RPG designers of all time, I thought Avellone would be rolling in fat stacks. I couldn't find any reputable information on his net worth (pic below is all I found), so does anyone know?

    He's either in dire financial straits or extremely rich or something in between.

    He is a flamboyant homosexual. Finding out he isn't gay would disappoint me in a way I haven't been disappointed since finding out dunkey is actually a fat white guy as opposed to a cool black dude.

    Pretty good.
    He doesn't look homosexual in that video, but he does look like he is under influence of some kind of stimulant.
    He looks like he does not entirely understand what is going on around him but also extremely energetic.
    This might explain his mannerism, moodswings and his disorderly career.
    This is extremely common among creative people with extremely stressful working conditions who suddenly became very rich.

    Definitely low T. A lot of creative people or artists are like that, because intelligence requires a degree of agreeableness to that which is outside oneself, as well as a capacity for perceiving what is relative and what is absolute. This requires a combination of masculine and feminine traits. The more masculine you are, the more prone you are to being super objective but to an inflexible degree (super masculine guys will often be closed minded and incapable of perceiving any subtlety in anything. In terms of gaming, think of dude bros and the like), where as the more feminine the more likely you are to descend into complete relativism, subjectivism, and ultimately to an "everything goes" attitude where all standards are just thrown out the window to the point where not even skill or quality matter anymore.

    Weininger spotted this right away when he claimed most creative men are only partially masculine. Even an outwardly "tough" guy like Brahms was actually quite feminine looking when young:

    [​IMG]

    And one is tempted to assume the grizzly bear image he cultivated later in life was a form of compensation for his own feminine characteristics (he was also a colossal shitlord who made Bruckner cry like a bitch, so basically a Codexer). Which leads me to the problem we have today, this divide between the ultra masculine and the ultra feminine, which is forcing people to chose sides, with the result that those of an agreeable nature will associate themselves with other agreeable people, and get swept away by the inertia created by this polarization, and the same applies to those who adopt a more combative attitude. I think the Codex belongs to the latter. We are just a bunch of middle of the road guys playing "tough" to fight against this excessive feminization that is destroying objectivity and thus true creativity everywhere, while most practicing artists have a tendency to succumb to the latter and get lost in the most abject relativism and passivity.

    Of course, it goes without saying that the "intellectual" type is more likely to be afflicted by homosexuality than those who stand on the extremities of the masculine/feminine spectrum, as per Weininger's theory. Avellone may or may not be teh faggot, but it's not surprising he presents so many feminine traits. A game like Torment is not something you'd expect from some super masculine guy. Torment is a textbook example of someone attempting to convey an higher meaning while being aware of the relativity of things. SJWs of course do not have the capacity for objectivity or conceiving of any kind of meaning, of whatever level, which is why for them people like Chris are an enigma, for he is quite clearly in the liberal camp but not quite completely like them.

    And yes, i just went through a long metaphysical explanation of faggotry and Chris Avellone. You are welcome.

    I got to the 0:25 second mark.

    Yeah he's gay. If not gay he's some kind of metrosexual.

    Maybe cite someone else than Weininger from time to time. His theories are pretty gay.

    His theories were correct, at least anything connected to what he got from studying neoplatonism. His scientific theories were most certainly bonkers, but that's the least interesting part of his writings.

    Male and female are two metaphysical archetypes and most human beings fall between those two poles, to different degrees. The problem with SJWs is that they don't understand that there IS such a thing as a masculine and feminine, but those two ideals exist in an absolute state only at the "formal" level, in the Platonic sense, which SJWs can't perceive due to their inability to grasp metaphysical concepts and principles. They do not perceive the metaphysical reality of masculinity and femininity, they just see that some people are more feminine than others and vice versa and they reason that sex is relative and gender is a construct.
