I am trying to recall what set Lupine Pariah off about Avellone. Was it something Avellone said about intelligent deathclaws in Fallout 2? I also remember this guy being a furry, which is par for the course.
He killed all the talking deathclaws in the Fallout bible.
More accurate to say that Frank Horrigan massacred them all.

You kill Frank. The deathclaws died because Chris said they did:
BTW, the talking deathclaws were destroyed at the end of Fallout 2. Xarn and Goris did not go on to create a new species. They are gone. Kaput. In-game spelling Goodbye. In fact, any mutant animal that talks can safely be assumed to have died at the end at the exact minute that Fallout 2 was over.
Any last words, talking animals?
I thought not.

Well, since the majority of humans in Fallout 2 are mutants (that's why the Enclave was going to kill them all with anti-mutant FEV), and since humans talk and are classified as animals...

Anyway, seriously, while I don't want to derail this thread anymore, this twitter user seems fascinating and should be studied in a lab. That's fucking mental.
Some Codexers have alarmingly high message counts too. No, not the joke 1mill+ counters, but some dudes have amassed post counts in the ten thousand range over just a few years, which seems to be realistic (but weird).

Postcounts used to be a betting currency in the days before the ratings parade. That's how I got some of mine, by winning a bet.

Is there any in-game evidence regarding what happened to the talking deathclaws?

Are you implying it needs to be stated in the game to be considered Canon?
I would of thought Fallout 3 and Fallout 4 had dispelled any illusion of that.

Other than Goris and Xarn (if you release him from Navarro)?
No.
The talking deathclaws get slaughtered by Frank Horrigan.

I made this point in the other thread, but being blacklisted, as shitty as it is, doesn’t mean exclusion if you have a creative/tech career, you can actually go out of the limelight and focus on what you love. I know two people who were blacklisted, and it sucks ass, but it’s navigable, unfortunately less so if you have less market favorable skills.

He could probably pick his role, relationship, workplace, and moderate price and be listed somewhere as a special thanks or consultant, or not be credited at all.

So I've been reading the Avellone threads at a place not to be named because it is full of trashy hypocrites and other assorted garbage, all of whom are straight white boys just so no one thinks this is a dogwhistle thing, and I noted some things from prior to the sex allegations. Did Avellone ever take meaningful damage from absolutely shitting all over Feargus? No right? Some people were blathering about how he'd drown in lawsuits and shit.

He didn't because then the stuff would have to be investigated by the authorities and there's a pretty good chance that it would be found it was all or most of it true and then Feargus would get in legal trouble instead.

One doesn't file lawsuits against what other people say if what they say is true, because then it will be (most likely) proven true. It won't just be the case of "don't listen to that guy, he's just salty and spreading lies" anymore. :lol:

People did bemoan how Chris's immediate response to to the allegations weren't as strong as this:
Aside from making up what Obsidian chose to never pay me, I set aside a legal fund to deal with any repercussions, and I will fight anything they bring to the table, tooth and nail. I welcome it.

If confronted with evil (as categorized by existing employees who will soon resign - check back in a week or two for the latest round, even though one of them dropped yesterday), I will be prepared to fight it. I guarantee I have more in my bank account than Obsidian does, since they rarely think more than 2 months in advance - and unfortunately, their very, very expensive lawyer charges by the hour, which is unfortunate, but he knows, remora-like, what to attach himself to to get the most financial gain.

That's what I thought. I don't even care for Chris's work or Obsidian that much but the smug self-important trash who were making all these claims were people I really disliked on that forum so I always hoped they'd be totally wrong.

Urquhart & Parker confirmed to be ~literally worse~ than career ruining rape accusations, I guess..?

Was glad Owlcat didn't fire him without any proof. Shitty move by Techland (as much as I love Dying Light) and others... Would be cool to see him continue writing. I love the games he worked on.

Maybe he can become a speaker for men's rights and the falsely accused.

Book Chris to speak at a library near YOU.

Chris has been cancelled and is now and forevermore guilty and a suspect in their eyes. Far left doesn't rehabilitate people, it persecutes and destroys them.
Even if he were to continue writing, I would imagine he could only find some shitty porn tier game, or something like *holds back vomiting, The Outer Worlds to write and be a part of.
However, he still has a loyal fanbase and certainly has the money to do his own thing, so there's that.

I think the best first step for him to get back into the game would be to team up with someone that is good at drawing and writing a comic book and try to kickstarter it.

If the level of success in this endeavor is big enough, it would help convince studios to hire him again.
