Make a game
« on: 16:19, Wednesday 13 Jun, 2012. »
So how about we just use this space to sow the seeds of an rpg?

Not sure where Ben would like to start first?

Maybe we should set up threads for setting, mechanics, themes and any other general area of game design...? Then people can spew, dump and puke their brainscapes into the awaiting vestibules.

*I realise that's just asking the obvious questions - but thought we could get the ball rolling.

Awww, bless you. I feel all remembered and stuff...

Don' get carried away  ;).

Basically I was bored at work - stuck in that long last hour of the day.

Still think it's a fun idea though.

Well, you've done it now...

A question: how would you define the difference between setting and theme?

Setting is world, theme is genre after a fashion. Using WoD examples, they all use the same setting, but the themes are wildly different.
