This is a really good piece on "Web3" and I'm not saying that because Gilad Edelman let me rant at him for hours as part of his research. It also feels like the first *WiReD* article I've read in Wired for years: https://www.wired.com/story/web3-paradise-crypto-arcade/
The fourth axiom of game design tells us that any rpg can, and eventually will, be used to play Star Wars.
So which system you choose is a matter of interpretation, of choosing which parts of the Star Wars mythos are important to you and your game, which parts should be systematized, which parts can be handled by the players, and which parts are irrelevant.
I've played Star Wars games using Dread, Feng Shui, Swords Without Master and Otherkind, and each gave a different play experience.
So I realize I've been thinking of social networks as graph-based and set-based.
Graph-based means you follow other users and get a feed of their posts. (E.g. Facebook, Goople, birdsite, here).
Set-based means you are either in or out and if you're in, your feed is the same as everyone else who's in. (E.g. subreddits, mailing lists, USENET groups, web fora.)
I'm finding this to be a useful distinction.
This massive game book looks like a prime example of something I'd almost certainly never play, but would like to own as a physical object. A bit steep at $50, though.
Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!
all i want in life is "scrivener but it's .md files instead of .rtf"
