Ron Edwards has mentioned that there is a difference in how some ideas were presented between the first and second editions of PTA, and I am curious as to what those differences are.

So, could anyone (Ron?) explain how any of the game concepts (jobs, narration, scene design, stakes, etc.) are explained differently between the two texts?

Alternatively, does anyone have a copy of the first edition of the game that they no longer want or know of where I could find a copy?

Doubtful, given that even the second edition/printing of PTA is now out of print as well. Matt is working on a revised edition to publish sometime soon.

I did read that comment by Ron and was also curious about how the ideas were presented in the first printing of the game.

I'm not so much interested in the mechanical differences as in the differences in how mechanics and concepts (like pitch sessions, scene framing, and other techniques) are described and explained.

As I recall it, except for the mechanics, the text in 1st ed. is identical. Pitch sessions, scene framing, and other techniques are all explained the same way.

Matt? You're around here somewhere. What do you say?

I don't think there's much of a difference. 2nd ed does a slightly better job of explaining is all.
