QuoteI'll skim some of it and if it isn't drek I'll read it after I'm done with the book. Most times though it's usually the writer showcasing the coolness of their NPCs. That drek I skip without hesitation. _________________ wyrdlyng
Quote from: DemonspahnHey wyrdlyng, interesting choice of words---I wouldn't even know what the word "drek" meant, much less in what context it was supposed to be used if it hadn't been for Shadowrun fiction.
QuoteMain Entry: dreck Variant(s): also drek /'drek/Function: nounEtymology: Yiddish drek & German Dreck, from Middle High German drec; akin to Old English threax rubbishDate: 1922: TRASH, RUBBISH
QuoteI probably started using the term a lot more after I started playing Shadowrun. Of course I still use a lot of their in-game slang like chummer, hoi, geek, breeder, jack, etc. in my normal speech.
Quote from: ADGBossOne can have the greatest game system and kewlest setting and kickingest pdf downloads on the web, but if its boring or does not grab the interest of the potential gamer then its of no use.Now we know Art is deadly important (which I am finding out thanks to great people who have responded to my call for artists) but what about fiction pieces either in print form, in the body of the game, on websites etc. IS fiction over used (done to death by White Wolf) or is it an important, possibly critical piece to the formation of the game?What about other marketing features?
