Quote from: BrennanI am actually glad for your prep comments, Ron. It seems like some upfront prep is really good for this game.
QuoteCircumstance refers to the specific situations [in which] Tension Points can be used. Without circumstantial considerations, Tension Points could be used on a whim - at any time, for any effect, and either for or against player goals. When Tension Points are used in a haphazard or inconsistent manner, players never know what to expect. The consequence is often chaotic, unfocused stories.
QuoteRon:Nice to see you posting here again! I hope it will demonstrate that threads like this - and your participation in them - are better promotion than financial schemes of any kind.I urge you and Andrew to post Actual Play threads of your own demonstrating the virtues of the game.
Quote from: Ron Edwards on October 28, 2006, 06:53:00 PMWhen and how the GM spends Tension Points is not set in stone. In fact, it must be decided upon, choosing from a bunch of options or making up new ones, before play. This more than anything determines the fundamental features, and in fact the emotional experience, of play.
