Couple things: first, not game related- this blog is A.W.E.S.O.M.E. That's not really an acronym, btw, its just for emphasis.
Now, game related: This guy's journal is worth keeping up with if you're interested in game related stuff. Earlier this year he wrote this:
The Fun Now Manifesto
(nothing new, just formalized)
1. Not everyone likes the same thing
2. Play with people you like
3. Play with rules you like
4. Everyone is a player
5. Talking is good
6. Trust, not fear or power
7. It's a game, not a marriage
8. Fun stuff at least every 10 minutes
9. Fix problems, don't endure them
I'd just like to add that my role playing philosophy has done a 180 in the last year or so. Its all about going from it being a formalized highly restrictive medium for "fun", into a dynamic non-restrictive medium for FUN. Its just always wild to look back in my gaming perspective.
