VBCW Communist Insult Generator (Hereford Variant)
« on: April 01, 2020, 11:28:39 AM »
In order to keep myself vaguely amused, I've produced a "Communist Personal Insult Generator" for the VBCW (Hereford variant), whereby you and 2D6 can produce a contemporanous random insult against any non-Communist 28mm figure (players themselves are obviously too Very British to insult each other). This was based on an idea from the original AK47 Republic ruleset, where the same mechanism was used to randomise your new African "country" or "republic".

I'd be grateful if those who know their 1930s Soviet slang (or even the choicest of insults from Mao's China, Castro's Cuba or Paris 1968) could cast their eye over it and suggest any amendments or improvements?

Otherwise, if you want some innocent (or not so) Communist fun, see the blog here:

Love these kinds of things.

If you can find room for "beast" I'd put that in. According to Antony Beevor one Soviet commander gave the order to fire upon Berlin with: "Fire at the lair of the Fascist beast!"

This was fun. I haven't done one of these in ages. Well, yes, I used to...um...never mind.

I had some trouble with your local place names, but I did the best I could. You're gonna need a D20 for your table. That will give you a flatter distribution curve, so that's good. Away with all ghosts and monsters, comrade!

monstrous rightist self-seeker from Bumtwaddle

infantile leftist provocateur from Little Piddle

rotten nihilist agent from Peascod

corrupt subversive assassin from Wye Knott

backwards feudal oppressor from Fuddling Pyle

impotent careerist butcher from Codswallop

crude parvenue deceiver from Boring

lying effete blood-sucker from Futtering Round

treacherous bloody-handed chauvinist from Great Dorking
You'll shoot your eye out, kid!

Excellent Leadboy, I’ll be updating this for my TGAA campaign...thanks for the idea!

What can I say but, “you vile Capitalist Parasites from Bellevue Hill beware the revolution!”

Thanks all! NCSE - I got "beast" in, can't think why I forgot it in the first place! Zippyfusenet, thanks for you all work and I've inserted the best (most Commie to my mind) and saved the rest for a future BUF Insult Generator...Captain Darling, I'm an admirer of the TGAA and glad to be of small use - mind you, I would expect Antipodean insults to be off the scale by comparison (we used to have the occasional TV feature here on "Parliamentary language", i.e. the words that cannot be uttered in the House of Commons, and it always concluded with footage of the Australian Parliament where, in the best style, no holds were barred!). Thanks again all.
