Quote from: Ron Edwards on February 09, 2008, 10:45:25 AM. . . write a new document from scratch. This new document would be much like an instruction manual for a card game or board game. It would contain references to more detailed stuff to look up in the [larger] document. A person could read it all the way through and get a very strong idea of how to play the game, what constitutes "success" in playing it, and what it's for. . . .If you were going to play, what would you have to do first? When you have other people gathering to play, what must they do first? Then what second? Lay it out in steps. . . Once you have that ready, or at least in draft, then put some inspirational text in as well, at the beginning. This would not be faux-fiction. This is, instead, the answer to Eero's question, "why not just play D&D,"

And if so, can you outline for us which parts of that text are doing what you are describing.My own experience has shown me that sometimes you think you are showing, when in fact you are just doing a more complicated version of telling.Jake
