To declare obsolete any game that does not have a "draw your robot" space on the character sheet.

"But Ben!" you protest feebly, "my game does not have robots at all!"

"and whose fault is that," I respond, shaking my head slowly at your blindness, "and whose fault is that, in the end?"



I second this motion, but add the "really cool draw-your-map-as-part-of-play" alternative, especially if you get to write stats on the map.

Hrm.  I consider that decidedly inferior to drawing your robot.

But... if you insist.



The robot game in my head comes with a plastic bag of assorted legos.

"Draw" indeed!

Can we look forward to this feature in the next version of Polaris?


Bliss Stage IS the sequel to Polaris.

In any really good robot game, your robot should be able to draw itself.

Ben, why do you think I had to make my own Burning Wheel character sheets?  Where was all that robot gonna go?

Prequel, actually.

I'm glad to see spirited discussion, but you can't change a universal truth by arguing.
