Title: Help me find some old threads
Post by: timfire on May 09, 2007, 03:24:51 AM
Hi y'all,

I'm trying to find some old threads for reference. I'm looking for discussions on the issue of when content (characters, events, setting, facts, etc.) are established in the SIS/fiction. The answer is during play; this relates both to prep work and "secret" knowledge (ideas that are just in the player's head).

I remember this was discussed a few times, probably in the old theory and/or GNS boards, but I'm having trouble finding any threads through my own searching. I've tried a few searches using "prep","secret", & "SIS", but no luck. Maybe someone has a thread bookmarked, or maybe someone can suggest some terms for me to search? Links to discussions off-site would work, too.

Thanks!

I always love a search challenge. At first glance this (http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=15173.0) looks promising. This (http://www.indie-rpgs.com/forum/index.php?topic=16998.0) may be useful also, but I didn't follow it as well in a quick read. In case those aren't helpful here's the search term I used via google:

s.i.s. facts established site:www.indie-rpgs.com (http://www.google.com/search?q=s.i.s.+facts+established+site%3Awww.indie-rpgs.com)
