Size and concise writing

Filed under: General — Tags: , — bilbo @ 4:52 pm

For what it is worth, as I write more I find myself to try and say more with fewer words. This is not to the detriment of understanding or clarity, in fact, it is in aid of clarity. I have found my squirrel books at 60 page of big margin digest format say a whole lot more than some of my larger books. I have had more than one newbie to role playing thank me for a clear rules set. To me, at this point, that is what I am talking about. It is what I prefer.

  1. My next game will consist of just one word! I shall go beyond concise and become cryptic! Sort of an anti-Borgstrom. People can read whatever they want to into the word and I will just smile and remain silent. I will draw a cult circle of followers – disciples – who shall sally forth and spread The Word – the only game whose title is longer than its body. Gamers will see me and despair!

    No, I will not do this. I shall refuse this temptation, and dwindle, and go into the West, and remain Galad… uh… clash.
