Second most #indieAF moment of #bigbadcon :
A roundtable peer-reviewed IPA-fueled oral defense of our favorite PbtA games, with Jeremy Tidwell, Arnold Cassell, Andi Carrison, Gary Montgomery, and Jesse Coombs. Edit and the inestimable and thoughtful John Aegard! EDIT again and Tomer Gurantz! And probably a dozen more people. I’m the worst.
“Because it’s rad” being an unacceptable defense, I learned a lot of really interesting stuff about what attracts people to PbtA games. Learning learning, always learning.
Sagas of the Icelanders was mine, because SotI can’t fail, it can only be failed. But the most talked-about was Marshall Miller’s The Warren on numerous technical and thematic grounds.
