Smarter People Than Me

My post on Musing 02? Here’s a take — it’s immersion, speaketh the legend Raph Koster.

Perhaps, most interestingly, is the sheer application of these same concepts to the real world. What happens when we finally unify that theory of everything that predicts how to maximize life? Reboot?

Still, factors on the mind. Included in this is a theory that part of the game is the GM involved in the act of discovery of the world themselves as part and parcel of the nature of the game. No maps, no prepwork, everything on the spot and ad-hoc. Every failed utterance a massive consequence. Still, sounds fun. Kind of a “hey, yeah, I’m controlling your universe but I’m exploring it with you at the same time” type of idea.
