Quote from: PakaI would think the way this would play out is everyone in the game would be chasing their own definition of Humanity and the game would be somehow disjointed.
Quote from: Michael S. MillerPlus, after you've figured out Humanity, you must define the demons in opposition to it. Does that mean you've now got three entirely different kinds of demons? Even less reason for them to be in the same story.
Quote from: James_NostackIf I'm understanding this objection properly, does it mean that Sorcerer is incapable of exploring, say, an open-ended tranhusman type of theme like "What does it mean to be human?"
QuoteTROS and TSOY ask "What is important to you? How important?" Different protagonists may be concerned with different things and still answer the same question, because what the game is dealing with is how people manage those priorities.Sorcerer asks "Is (This) important to you?* How important?" if the protagonists have different (This)s, then they are not answering the same question, as in the above example.* Another thing about Sorcerer is, if a character just says 'no' to this question, he's not really human. The second question is the one that matters, how does it arrive that someone would shrug off their Humanity?
QuoteI'm very interested in your response to my post - specifically the section titled "The more likely scenario." That is a major issue and not at all spinning-out.
Quote from: Ron Edwards...Think of one very general term: call that Humanity. Then think of dozens and dozens of different ways for it (a) to be interpreted by a given individual and (b) for it to come under crisis - those are Characters...
