@paulczege So cruel of them to speak like that. :)

@mdhughes I'm not sure I follow how Fudge brings any more immunity to rules lawyering than Fate does. Perhaps it's the subjectivity of when an aspect can be compelled or not that drives some of that distaste?
@mdhughes I quite like FUSGE and Fate. I think they're rather complementary. And I think GURPS 3e and 4e really tried to accentuate that disadvantages are supposed to figure into play, but creating a laundry-list of disadvantages means at some point they're not getting played.

Think I'm going to prune a lot of the books that I have in my game design / development bookshelf. Lots of them basically say the same thing without really adding much to the overall conversation.
That said I don't think I'll ever get rid of my Chris Crawford books. Literally opened up the book to the end of how he designed Eastern Front and his discussion about symphonic games gave me designing feels.
@nickwedig Oh my... no, that's definitely not the way of it.
TFW you look through your RSS feeds and think "I should remove this from my feeds because it has gone dormant" only to receive a post on why it is being reactivated:

1) Print it to a PDF and drop that into a read_review folder
2) Add the link into your next actions list
3) Make a bookmark
in order of usefulness / ease of use.
Honestly, if I came up behind you and closed your browser you shouldn't want to kill me for closing your tabs. Give yourself the mental break from seeing all of that crap in your face at all times.
@paulczege Congratulations! That's awesome!
@Halfjack Here if you need the void to listen.
