  • I'm dealing with some deadlines right now, folks. I'll get back to the thread as soon as I can and address the various questions & comments that happened in the meantime. Then move forward with the commentary too.

  • Oh, that realization/acceptance part was something I never forgot nor let go, trust me

    What I'm saying is that to present it along the decision aspect under the light I've described above helps to deliver it to the game with the right amount of monstrous teeth & no easy answers Beast should have, I think.

    And don't worry about saying how you feel about the text! I know you well enough to be sure it's all constructive commentary made in good faith....

  • Books further along the line refined the concept a lot, that's for sure. I'll avoid going on a tirade right now, because I don't want to repeat myself too much in this thread, but both Conquering Heroes, the BPG and Dark Eras 2 show great examples of how to adjust a trajectory and get some excellent things out of it.

    As for the Core, Lessons as something grafted on the game while things were happening works in places and I think they are a good concept to have around for multiple reasons (though I'd personally change the gameline's focus on them and try to clear a bit of confusion...

  • Ok, let's start to write something. I meant to do that yesterday, but the day turned rough and I've spent the evening reading Sandman instead.

    First step is the Introduction, though I want to discuss the fiction too before this thread ends. I have thoughts about those. Not gonna do the whole chapter in one post: I think it's easier to have a conversation and write more specific commentary if I keep stuff in smaller bullet points.

    The one thing I said when starting my reread is that reading these purple books gives me life, and the Introduction is no exception. It still...

  • I'll get to it, eventually. As per this thread, I think Arc and I will do the core and then see if we feel like doing the other books too.

    It's all rather chill and informal (though we'll sure try to provide a good conversation here), so we haven't discussed about schedules & possible progression. Still, I would not exclude the chance and I don't think Arc does either.

    Edit: Ninja-ed by my esteemed partner in crime. What a betrayal!...

  • Oh, this is up!

    Well, Arc said most of everything, I think. Yeah, long story short I felt like I needed a refreshment and was in the mood for it, so the Beast reread is happening.

    I should be able to post some initial thoughts about the Intro later today and get the ball rolling.

    Also, any conversation involving me & Arc is bound to the cruel sovereignity of our distant timezones, so that's probably going to mean we won't be always active around the same time.
