My Life with Master knows codependence.
And if you're doing anything with your Acts of Evil ashcan license, of course I'm curious and would love to hear about your plans

Or, if you're looking at this thread in the archives, this link is probably better:

Regardless, I posted a comment to him about it. I think it's interesting how he finds narrative constraint (the master MUST die) to be the most innovative thing, when "The Horror Revealed" evolved to make things LESS constrained...

I also think it's cool that he considers MLwM to support one of his theories while disproving another.

Well, that is just uber-cool.  I'm a Costikyan fan from back when SPI was a company, "I Have No Words & I Must Design" was a favorite essay from back before I heard of GO or the Forge, and . . . it's just uber-cool.  I've thought some sort of crossover between what the Forge is up to and what Greg, Chris Crawford and their peers are up to would be interesting for quite a while now.

But mostly, I'm just sayin' - MLwM in Greg Costikyan's blog.  That's so cool the nipples of creatures living on the sun-facing side of Mercury are getting stiff.
