Dice Tales: Conclusion

Roman twenty-sided die

The Dice Tales column has been running since the beginning of the year; now it’s time to bring it to a close.

All the posts will remain available here on Book View Cafe, though spam prevention measures mean the comment threads will close after a time. However, if you’re interested in continuing the discussion of games and storytelling, I invite you to join the Dice Tales community on Imzy. I’m hoping that will become a place for GMs and players to talk about these issues, in both a campaign-specific and a more general theoretical sense. The community is open for anybody to post; if you have your own thoughts, feel free to share them.

There will also be a more polished version of this series made available at some point in the future: not just cleaned up but expanded with a few new essays, touching on topics that I didn’t manage to hit on my original pass. I’m also thinking of including some of my academic papers on RPGs in there — if that’s something you would find interesting, let me know!

I’d like to thank everybody who commented along the way, and also the many GMs and players who have given me such a rich host of experiences to write about. And I’ll be back in a few months with a new blog series, so stay tuned!
