Shining Dodecahedron

One geek's views on role-playing and games in general.

This place is all about discussing paper-and-pencil roleplaying games. I'm Jay, and I run this joint, but that doesn't make me smarter than you. This will all work best if I say things, and you say what you think about them, lather, rinse, repeat. With luck we can all understand the hobby a little better. If you have a topic that you would like me to start a thread about, post a comment here. If you've got something to say about characters (my ongoing topic du jour), post a comment here.

The Deal

I'm mostly here to talk about role-playing games. Pen and paper, sit around a table or living room with your friends, full-on geekin' out role-playing games.
There has been a lot of movement in the realm of role-playing theory lately. Particularly at the Forge, people are talking about the hobby with more thought and scrutiny than ever before. I'm not here to affirm to refute the good work going on around the Web. I'm here to work my way through bad role-playing to good. I'll talk about theory, I'll talk about actually playing the games, and I'll ask a lot of questions. I hope that folks will help me answer the questions that I ask and will share their insights.
So that's the deal. Let's get going!
