Gamehacks and Settings

June 6, 2009

Shreyas’ Exalted hack – Radiant reminded me how gamehacking and homebrew settings are like mirrored siblings- both the rules and a setting exist to put the group on the same page- in any given game made by somebody else, you (singular, or your whole group) might dig on how the rules coordinate play, or the theme and color of the setting, but not both.

I think generally the success/failure of flipping one or the other depends on how well the group can get together on the new page (which, might have been what they were looking for in the first place).

Yet another way, this hobby demands most participants become designers…
