Quote from: WDFloresPS: Marco -- Correct me if I am wrong (via PM or e-mail) but I think the main difficulty that most folks have in accepting your "intent-based" proposals is simply that they don't find it useful to know what happens inside the blackbox of any particular gamer's brain. What matters is what you feed into it, and what comes out of it (ie: observable behavior as expressed in actual play, and supported by the system). The reason I believe this is so, is that it's much harder to tool around with what's in the blackbox rather than the elements that you feed into it. The feedback you get out of the blackbox allows you to adjust what you feed it. It isn't necessary to open the blackbox. I know that's a somewhat simplistic view, but I hope it helps explain the resistance you're experiencing.
