Some Hearty Food For Thought

I came across this by way of the RetroRoleplaying Blog. This is one of the best rants I have ever read, and you should read it too.

Just one more formulaic CRPG-ification bullet into the imagination at the heart of RPGs

Some hearty food for thought. What do you think?

  3. I'm glad my rant has been well received in the rpg-verse. Some will agree, and some won't. That's ok with me. We should talk about our annoyances and disagreements more.

    As I've admitted elsewhere, I almost didn't publish it and figured it would be ignored. If it leads a few of us to think about where the focus of our rules should be (and that's not my decision, its the designer's) then it did the job.

    Most surprising was my discovery that apparently my opinion isn't as outside the mainstream as I have been led to believe by what's popular in rpgs these days.

    Thanks for directing your readers my way to hear me vent.
