This discussion took place a while ago, at the end of February. I wasn’t sure it had enough content to merit posting, but as it turned out, BPG found it to be a breakthrough. We’ve done an intense further session about that, which is tied into the Boiling Pitch seminar and you’ll see it, or a text version, soon.
The first ten minutes concern something else, as he’d just asked me in email about the value I saw in role-playing as an activity, basically, “what good is it, what is the point.” I figured we’d get that out of the way first. Everything after that is about Directions Storyplaying, specifically, what is a meaningful jumping-off point for a group that allows for development and causal events to occur later.
All welcome BPG in visible motion! You unfortunately don’t get to see him role-play here, but I will be re-editing the older videos to include the visuals.
