I barabrians say it’s an excellent starting system for people who are good at improv and don’t want to learn a bunch of rules. WHile not having actually played BoL Please refrain from personal attacks and discriminatory racist, homophobic, transphobic, etc. It’s not about ‘experts’. You don’t like his approach? Do not submit posts looking for players, groups or games. But assuming and presuming to know without a doubt what the goal of every single game is and that only there is one?
The new and improved defender of RPGs! Thomas Vanstraelen 8 February at There’s not a lot rules, but there’s enough crunch there to dig into. Which is fine for an experienced player, but might be hard for newbies. It mounts wild fantasy cliches, breaks their spirit and rides them around its prehistoric world. Among other aspects you touch on in a negative sense and with which I agree.

To facilitate player enthusiasm, I use the following house rules:. Games are about socializing, barbariajs, having fun, team work, telling stories, and any other thing you can think about.
They are for ‘telling stories’ only in the same sense that golf or fishing is for ‘telling stories’, that’s not really the goal, and golfing stories or fishing stories are just something that happens but no one goes golfing or goes fishing to try to ‘make a story’ from those activities; and 9 times out of 10, the ‘story’ of any random Golfing, Fishing, or RPG session are going to be pretty rambling and pointless, if not outright boring.

And for those that for whatever reason just don’t particular feel like coming up with an escape plan my friend’s mother for example then it allows you to just hand-wave it and get on with the game.
Though of course it’s more expensive; not sure what we’re talking about here since I believe you’re talking physical copies and I didn’t even know Lulu had the Mythic edition.
