@tenthousandworlds I was looking over some of your materials, and it may be superficial, but do I detect a bit of influence from Fudge/Fate?


Hmm… I encountered #Fate recently, so no, but I see the kinship. #FUDGE itself, and its concepts seen in other games (scale: Star Wars, naming values: James Bond) probably did influence me, but the colorful tables I owe to Gamma World.

My biggest conscious influence was when #TSR lawyers went after kids for putting their own rolled-up D&D characters on that new internet thing. One lawyer actually wrote (wish I’d kept it) “It’s fun to make your own game.” He was right.
