I’ve been drawing these things for years. I’ve rarely discussed them publicly for a couple reasons, but busted one out for my Understanding the Pool seminar, and got to thinking about them again. Then Jason, who was saving my sanity regarding Adobe Premiere, asked me about them outta the blue, based on a discussion about Poison’d and Steve Hickey’s chart for that game, reproduced here:
That led to a little discussion, during which we diagrammed Trollbabe and Gregor Hutton’s 3:16, and lots to follow up on from there. Please forgive the Very Big Jason and the Itsy Bitsy Me screens; I’m still hashin’ out interfaces for these things.
I’ll follow up in the comments on some of the stuff we mentioned, including diagrams for the general point about (a lot of) D&D, Mars Colony, Nine Worlds, and carry.
