Lets See What Happens Next

Ok another long gap without posting. However something just came to me today as I was looking through the other RPG blogs I read. First there was , Yes there is an Unbridgeable Gap From Bat In The Attic. I of course had to read, proof of an unbridgeable gap? Courtesy of Jeff's Gameblog. They both refer to, Keep Randomness Out of Your Encounters! From Living And finally Role-Playing is not...what I once thought it was from Lamentations of the Flame Princess. After reading all those something happened to me. Maybe it was the RPG Fairy with a big magical mallet. Smack over the head. And the clouds parted, and the light came through. Story, System, Roll vs Role, hack and slash, munchkins, power gamers or new style vs old school. Gaming is lets pretend. The goal is Lets See What Happens Next. However you accomplish that is your choice. Any way that works for you is the right way.

  1. So you got yourself a case of enlightenment, huh? I can't help but smile at how all those other blogs said things that had already been said years before. I suppose it comes down to any given person being good and ready to accept the ancient wisdom?

    Hey, let's play a little game here. I'll throw out a few quotes from days gone by on this subject, and you identify what authors and/or games they're from.

    A) "Roleplaying is let's pretend with rules."

    B) "If a rule annoys you, ignore it."

    C) "There is no wrong way to play."

    D) "Some people juggle geese."
