In class, in research, in work: Realism works the best.
In gaming: Realism is out the window. (Almost)
I think a realistic, AND simple system is essential to gaming. A
system must be realistic enough for the players to incorporate there
own real-life experiences and desires, but simple enough to be able to
focus on "THE GAME" part. And so I think it should be with this. A
good, happy medium, is needed. I agree with getting rid of RBB. We
should venture out on our own with this system. The work that
Amonchare did is great. KUDOS. We now have a GOOD base with which to
work from. These equations seem simple enough to work.
I have been EXTREMELY busy since January with classes, work, and
Wedding Plans. So I haven't been able to contribute to this list as
much as I have wanted. But I believe that what Amonchare was doing was
the right route to follow.
Lets move on. Arguing about it ain't going to get it to work.
