July is certainly a month of travels. I'm back in Texas again, reunited with my family who has been staying with my wife's parents for a couple of weeks. I've got a conference starting today. After that's over, we'll drive back east.
I've hit upon the idea of a series of posts taking things I see, places we visit, or people I meet or observe and putting them into "game terms" -- describing them like an NPC or an interesting locale. My inspiration here is really Christian's posts, which I find very entertaining and inspiring. His posts are often statted out in World of Darkness terms, which is ideal for this sort of project. Unfortunately, I haven't played any of the White Wolf games since college, so that won't work for me. I might stat them up in Risus and throw in a random table or two where appropriate, but it's the narrative I want to practice and the ideas I want to save.
Hmm. . . statless narrative and description of an alternative-yet-familiar reality are exactly what Trey is up to. I can only hope my stuff is 10% the quality of his.
