QuoteNow we have the interesting question, how well does a given how-to manual actually work? There are plenty of them, and I imagine - can't say for sure, don't know - that there are at least a few different ways to organize them. I wonder which might be best for RPGs, or rather, for a given RPG?
Quote from: pblockMaybe your instrument analogy would work here, Ron. A how to play an instrument?
Quote from: Key20JasonThe characters are presented first. Perhaps because they are most important? In most games, gamers want to be the stuff of legend. It makes sense they are presented first.
Quote from: contracycleWe all know that far too many RPG's wast time, space and money reproducing a "what is RPG" section and a "how to play" section and a "how to GM" section. I do not, however, think that most tubes of oil paint come with instructions on "Perspective" or "Composition". We do not expect the practitioner to learn at the same time they buy their tools.
