Quote from: jburnekoIt's entirely possible that the real Kicker, in Sorcerer terms, is Conan's capture by Belit, the pirate queen, which doesn't happen for several pages into the story. Which wouldn't surprise me since I've noticed that feeling with Sorcerer games in general. Sorcerer games never feel like they begin at the start of the story as an external reader or watcher would experience it. Sorcerer games seem to start about 20 pages into the book or about 30 minutes into the movie.

QuoteI think I'm still seeing my job as providing conflict, openended, non-railroady conflict, but still providing it
