I really do not want to hear about: theories about role-playing games -- I like to play rpg’s not to think about rpg’s
I think dead orc babies are: cliché’d − but lemme quote George R.R. Martin:
“Lord of the Rings had a very medieval philosophy: that if the king was a good man, the land would prosper. We look at real history and it’s not that simple. Tolkien can say that Aragorn became king and reigned for a hundred years, and he was wise and good. But Tolkien doesn’t ask the question: What was Aragorn’s tax policy? Did he maintain a standing army? What did he do in times of flood and famine? And what about all these orcs? By the end of the war, Sauron is gone but all of the orcs aren’t gone – they’re in the mountains. Did Aragorn pursue a policy of systematic genocide and kill them? Even the little baby orcs, in their little orc cradles?
In real life, real-life kings had real-life problems to deal with. Just being a good guy was not the answer. You had to make hard, hard decisions. Sometimes what seemed to be a good decision turned around and bit you in the ass; it was the law of unintended consequences. I’ve tried to get at some of these in my books. My people who are trying to rule don’t have an easy time of it. Just having good intentions doesn’t make you a wise king.”
Games I’m in are like: http://eternal-con.de/ or http://the-kraken.de/
The contents of this interview are very representative of the way I like to both GM and play.
Free RPG Content I made for Glorantha is available here.
Free RPG Content I made for Imperial China is available here.
Free RPG Content I made for weird fantasy role-playing is available here.
You can buy RPG stuff I made about BRP China er, probably nowhere, since the game is long OOP.
You can buy RPG stuff I made about RuneQuest: Roleplaying in Glorantha (in French!) here.
If you know anything about East Asia, it’d help me with a new project I’m working on.
Last but not least— I have been permanently banned from RPG.net, and I wear this as a badge of honour 🥇🥇🥇
