The next public version of Adventure World (soon! I hope!) may very well be abolishing experience points as a mechanic, to go for something a little more elegant. This is from the Scoundrel, hence those specific questions on the bottom.

I'm not sure about the "You may only do this once per question". And also, it could potentially be "Then, ask the others: did I...". Also, the questions may not be the best possible questions. But this is the general idea: resolving a thread always results in improvement, and you also have some encouragement to play your archetype into the role it's meant to fufill.

Currently trying to figure how to describe the nature of role-playing games in a way that is natural to musicians.

Changes to Adventure World's Conditions, maybe?

I do too! But I'm starting to feel like it's the right mechanic for the wrong game, and if I really want to evoke the adventure atmosphere, I should be doing a lot more hand-waving for equipment so that fiddly (albeit interesting) encumbrance rules aren't taking up mental space that could be spent on things more appropriate for the genre.

Thought: most people think of games in terms of presenting a challenge, but when I design RPGs, I am trying to make them as easy as possible

Today I was, as per *world tradition, making a list of the influences for Adventure World. This includes all the art that I've encountered in my life that evokes a sense of mystery, wonder, and the spirit of adventure. And, while I'm pretty happy with my list, I did notice one pretty glaring flaw: the list is 77% white men.

I'd love to rectify this. If anyone knows of any books, stories, games, songs, comics, tv shows, movies, or other artistic creations that bask in the unusal, the unexplained, or the fantastic and are created by people who are NOT white men, I'd love to hear about them and hopefully find new people to add to my list.

Ah, the time-honored question of "how in-voice can I right these rules while still making everything clear?"

I've been working with awesome people like +Jessica Hammer, +Mark Diaz Truman, +Avery Mcdaldno on a new project called Different Play. Our goal is supporting and increasing diversity in analog games.

Our first effort, which I'm so excited for, is starting a Patreon: we're going to find new, diverse designers with cool ideas, and help them develop those into finished games. We've got all-star talent to help out with mentoring, playtesting, editing, and art, including +Lillian Cohen-Moore, +Lizzie Stark, +Ryan Macklin, and others.

We're raising the money because diversity can't be founded on charity. The designers we're speaking to, like +Wendy Gorman (whose supercool game "Letters from Shama" will be one of our first projects) are awesome, and to help connect them to the broader community as equals, that means paying everybody involved like the professionals they are.

So:
* Support the Patreon here: http://www.patreon.com/different_play
* Are you somebody with an idea for a game?  Whether you're published, unpublished, or somewhere in between, get in touch with us at submissions@differentplay.com. We're looking for more designers for the Patreon from traditionally underepresented communities. You can be interested in making story games, freeform, larp, or dungeon crawls, we'll find experts to help make your game happen.

Please reshare this! Please consider helping us out! And in 2015, we're going to have a lot more to announce, which you can see a peek at http://www.differentplay.com

feedback welcome, and please spread the message far and wide
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!

It's my birthday but all I can think about is Ferguson. I hope something comes out of all of this.

This is one of my favorite pieces of music that has ever been written. A chilling funeral march, a rousing chorale, and a terrifying and frenzied finale.
