Lovely.
 
Ce site est la face visible de tout ce qui serait autrefois resté sur un bout de mon disque dur ou sur la nappe d'un restaurant : game design, création de jeu de rôle, etc. Alors forcément, c'est un peu le bazar, mais c'est là où je mets l'essentiel de mes divagations sur le jeu de rôle et les ...

Fair enough. I just see a lot of his stuff on a particular tumblr I follow and over time my tolerance for that aspect has dwindled.

Damned! We have already played it in English. Didn't know they wanted to translate it.

Best line of the "Undead" monster entry from D&D [1]

Reading this article +Jessica Hammer linked about gamification makes me think about another theory of education and fun, which I might call "The Cat in the Hat" i.e. "It's fun to have fun but you have to know how."

Almost everything I've learned via, and for games has been so I can either learn to play the game (i.e. have fun at all), learn to play the game better (i.e. have more fun), or prepare to play the game in a new way.

IDK, just chewing on it.
Be it playful design or gamification: It usually takes about five minutes until the Mary Poppins tune “Spoonful of Sugar” is evoked. This talk will explain why this reference is both true and false, how the movie entails two radically divergent theories of fun that match what we know in psychology and educational research, and how to translate this into designing for fun. My talk given at Gaminomics 2015, June 11, 2015 in London.

Like, subtraction is boring, but when you want to play D&D, subtraction is a pretty easy and good thing to learn.

Sculpting in choice.

(I can't justify this, yet, but I'm thinking about it.)

(Reading that, I realized that I pronounce "role-playing" as a two-syllable word.  "Role-plain," or maybe "role-playeen.")

I have a smithy friend of mine that can't stand the over the top hype that Wootz gets. Something about how the unbelievable, mythic properties of Wootz are exactly that, mythic exaggerations of decent steel made from poor materials.
