The conditions must be right to enjoy it. We knew what those conditions were, and undertook measures to create them.He's talking about a video game, but damn. That is some crucial shit for all game players. What are the necessary play conditions for your current game? Are you creating the conditions you need to play?
Also, Mike Mearls said this on his Live Journal:
Both Agon and Burning Empires were held up at work today as examples of the cool RPG stuff at GenCon.Where "work" equals "Wizards of the Coast D&D Development Team." OMG. Awesome. He goes on to say, "The Forge booth was (accurately) identified as, 'This is the place to look for cool new games.'" And he's right. I bought 14 new games at the Forge booth alone, and they are all wonderful.
