Quote from: whduryea on February 12, 2011, 03:50:46 PMThose all sound like great ideas, David. I would particularly like to play games based on concepts #1 and #4. Rudy (FetusCommander) and I have a goofy little indie RPG podcast, and we recorded an episode about this round of the Ronnies where we discuss our favorite games and offer suggestions for/critiques of some of the entries. We tried to keep the discussion as constructive as possible, so hopefully our thoughts will be useful to some of the contestants.We also did this for last round's entries.

Quote from: Devon Oratz on February 13, 2011, 02:46:17 PMI find it odd that comparisons are being made to White Wolf on the grounds that the game uses d6 dice pools, as White Wolf games use d10 dice pools. The correct mechanical comparison would be to Shadowrun (which actually does use d6 dice pools, albeit differently). If on the other hand you meant to say that the game seemed very "White Wolfy" because it was so unrepentantly goth then that is a statement I can't disagree with because it is entirely true. (Disclamatory Note: Personally speaking, I am about as far away from self-identifying as "goth" as you can get, but I don't deny that the game has a certain flavor.)

Quote from: Elizabeth on February 13, 2011, 04:35:25 PMCan I just say? That podcast made my month. Really. I've never been able to eavesdrop on a conversation between three people who TOTALLY GET something I wrote before, and it was just an absolute treat. I'm working on the revision right now, in large part inspired by the fact you guys were so into it.
