An interesting perspective on "Traditional" RPG play

On John Kim’s blog (which you can find in the links at right), he points readers to a discussion of “Mother May I” rpg play on yet another blog.

I’ve read that blogger’s posts and his analysis is interesting. I’m not say that he’s right or wrong but what he has to say should probably be considered. Personally, I’m going to think about what he’s said for a few days and post a response.

Until then, here are some direct links to his posts:

Mother May I Part 1

Mother May I Part 2

Mother May I Part 3

Mother May I Part 4

    Hmm, I think it raises some interesting questions.
    What makes roleplaying interesting to do with more people, then? More crayons, so to speak? The same thing goes with Mother, May I, I guess.

    I agree that, to a certain extent, what makes roleplaying interesting is the people involved. I’m not so sure that more people (crayons) would automatically make a game better, though.

    I’m working on a follow-up post with further thoughts on this.

    Hey, 🙂

    Well, I just noticed this. So… who are you? 🙂

    I’m asking because I’d like to add a link to your blog from mine, but I’d like to know at least your name, which seems to be missing from your About page. 🙂
