I really think people need to realize that an good fantasy world does NOT mean detailed map, several invented languages, an entire economic structure in place, a blanketing meta-plot, and a bunch of spell lists. Again, I'm pretty biased.

QuoteIt's neither advantageous nor disadvantageous to have a Bound demon; it's neither advantageous nor disadvantageous to have an initial Binding roll. Either way is "good," because in Sword, whatever the character IS sets the tone, topic, and any concern of play. Choosing one or the other starting mode has no element of strategy, no more than jotting down notes about a protagonist for a story to be written is "strategy."
QuoteAlso, I think you are caricaturing my position regarding your economic comments. I found much to agree with you about on that thread, and "decry" is wholly off the mark in terms of values/judgments.
