I write code, but rarely talk about it. Sometimes I make tabletop games. Not actually a terrified rabbit. Okay maybe a terrified rabbit. Too many RTs. he/him

RPG thought. I like complex systems. I like simple systems. My preference is for a system to know what it wants to be, embrace it, and implement it well.

They’re a thing! I’d be lying if I said I disliked those complex systems.

“I’m not telling you what the answer should be but I am saying you should make a deliberate decision either way” is a thing I tell my kids a lot.

This is absolutely true and a thing I need to check in myself.

It’s absolutely not a good metric for all systems. My own game is not designed to model math teachers - but some can!

Yes! My skepticism is not of systems that can actually pull this off, rather the demand that every system must.

Can it win the Dune Sea podrace? And why was that kid we bought it from looking over his shoulder so much? Find out after this, on the latest episode of Top Thruster!

We're here on Tatooine where we bought this beater of a landspeeder from some desperate farm kid, and we're going to put some new repulsorlifts and a set of new Seinar FT-320 thrusters on it.

Indeed. Some people really like broad systems! Assuming focused systems are failed attempts to make a broad system is a thing I'd disagree with, for certain.

But it's one of those "I need to remember that many people do things very differently than I do" things.

And... I mean... Math teachers are not often the hero of an RPG, and when they are it's usually in games where the PC's career is beside the point, so it seems like an odd criteria to me.

I occasionally think about the guy who said that he judges RPG systems by how well character generation can create a knight and a math teacher, and that any system that can't do both equally well is deficient. And... huh.

I should get a carafe to pour my French press coffee into so the second cup isn't so bitter.
