Bringing things back to roleplaying games, I have been thinking a lot about what my specific flavour of game might be. The short version is that I think I am (at least right now) all about easy access and deep worlds.
Easy access games, as a concept, came to me through the excellent “Open Table Manifesto” from The Alexandrian:
An open table needs a system that’s easy to access. This does not, it should be noted, necessarily mean a simple system. Rather, an easy access system is one which allows players to start playing quickly.
Through all the years of gaming, I have focused a very great deal on introducing new people to this wonderful hobby. While there are many great games I have enjoyed over the years, only a small subset of those are really easy for new players to access.
