QuoteCharacter, Situation, Setting, Color and System.I think Theme/Plot are dilberately excluded from this list because they are fundamentally different and not NECESSARY for something to be a roleplaying game. The five elements listed are all, 'in-game' constructs. Notice that the footnote even defines 'System' to mean 'events to be occurring.' That is, these things all really 'exist' in the shared imagined space that is the game world. If this imagined space were somehow real then these 5 things are what it would be made up of.
