So, while reading a random (yet rather heavy) thread on Anyway, I came across a link to Play Passionately.
It’s sort of a mini-blog by Jesse Burneko in which he waxes poetically about how he likes to play RPGs.
Thing is, it’s a lot more than that. It is, in fact, a high-density wisdom container.
It’s short enough that you can read it from the top all the way through in about an hour or so. If you’re interested in role-playing at all, I strongly urge you to do so.
Recently, I played a mildly successful game of PTA. As play goes, it wasn’t un-fun, but it was far from the hallmark of awesome I know I can get from PTA. One of the players said she didn’t really like the game at all. Her character “did things she would never do”.
At the time, I didn’t really understand what she was talking about.
Now, I do.
