Quote from: BaileyPlayed Everway on Thursday. It lasted about two hours. It was a small (4 person) group, with two player characters and two gamemasters. It was a lot of fun.
Quote from: Ron EdwardsI cast my vote exceptionally strongly in the category that Any Actual Play is valid for discussion at the Forge, regardless of the game. That's been the policy from the beginning, and it has a reason - supporting active and self-reflective play of any kind leads to a more inquiring community; a more inquiring community tries new games more; trying new games more here at the Forge leads to more indie-game play. The point is to engender more indie-game play than there was previously in absolute value, not to get more indie-game play relative to non-indie-game play. Therefore promotion of all play is the best route to the goal.
Quote from: Clinton R NixonI'm going to ask a question, but I need to put serious disclaimers before it. This question is solely for the process of information gathering and discussion, and doesn't reflect any views, policy, or effect on the Forge at all.That said:The Forge is here for the creation, promotion, and play of independent games, right? In that case, is the idea that anyone can show up as discuss whatever RPG they play a good idea? Does it help create, promote, or play indie games? (It well might - that's why I ask.)Or does it water down the content on independent game design and creation? The Forge has grown at a near-exponentional rate. Has that been good for it? Or should the non-indie material be shunted towards communities that have that as their explicit purpose?I don't know the answer to this question, but I think it's one well worth examining before we move on.
Quote from: Clinton wrote45% of the people around here read and talk about indie games, and then go home and play D&D or d20 Cthulhu or whatever. I don't have a problem with these games, but they aren't getting indie games played.
Quote from: Seth L. Blumbergwe're used to thinking of an RPG in terms of "one night every other week for the next three years" rather than as a casual pick-up kind of experience
QuoteNow that Josh is in town, I think you might see more Actual Play posts out of both of us. :-)
