So i guess Kicking People out of jobs for their opinions is okay with you ?.  I mean this might just be Sign Obsidian is moving More Mainstream. and we all know what Mainstream means.

 

We don't know that this writer was kicked or even pressured out of their job. It's not a particularly unusual move for a contractor who suddenly finds themselves in the midst of a controversy to step back from their other work of their own volition in order to avoid tangling their clients up in their controversy.

 

 

What controversy when he was victim of witchhunt ?

Thats the Official story. Official stories arent always true.

 

They also aren't necessarily false either.

There's no evidence that he even left, let alone got kicked. For all we know he's still working on the game. And stop with the strawman and trying to create drama where there isn't. 

 

 

Im not creating drama i want to know the reality behind the situation.

So the story here is that nutters from Gamerghazi started a witch hunt against some guy who posted some opinions on some website, who was also hired by Obsidian to do some contract work for them. And that's about it.

Obsidian didn't do anything. He resigned before they could even react.

 

Seriously, man. You don't know what you're talking about here. Let it go.

What I just told you comes directly from the writer himself.

 

If you want to ask him about it, feel free to create an account on RPG Codex and do so.

Regardless of whether or not it's justified, the end result of said witch-hunt is controversy.

I'm curious though: How on Earth did "writer of Edér"? enter the Picture? Where's the source for this?

If none, I fear this is some ill-concealed slandering on Obsidian, not to mention poor Eric.

It has been confirmed that Eric Fenstermaker has not resigned, the OP got him and another writer confused - who seem to have resigned on his own accord due to controversy on another site, unrelated to Obsidian Entertainment. As this thread had degenerated into pure speculation, I've decided to close the thread.
