I’m having a pretty involved conversation over at TheRPGSite, which has been very interesting. It started as a thread about the Indie RPG Awards, and I registered and waded in when they started talking about Grey Ranks. I offered to answer questions and correct any misapprehensions and a number of thoughtful people took me up on it. They are asking some challenging questions and it’s been very good for me to formulate cogent answers. It’s making me realize how insular my gaming/Internet world is – why haven’t I been asked these questions before now? We need better critical faculties and mechanisms as a community.
We’re also talking a bit about the Indie RPG Awards and how to make them better, which is strictly awesome.
Of course, this truly productive conversation is occasionally interrupted by some lunatic screaming “SHITCOCK!” in my ear, which baffles me, but that’s the noise in a lot of good signal.
