    Hey folks,

    Did you already record the interview with Vincent? If it’s not out of place I’d love to forward some questions. If it is out of place… well then… yeah.

    We’re gonna play Dogs and Poison’d first, then interview him about all three. Your questions are more than welcome!

    Hey guys,

    Just fyi, I recall reading a forum discussion somewhere about how the rules might apply to “just talking.” It involved Vincent Baker, so it must have some sort of “official blessing.”

    The basics of it were: it’s not a conflict until it’s a concrete action. The example was of a grand vizier trying to convince a prince to do something. As long as everyone was just describing a conversation, and everybody was agreeing/disagreeing, no dice were rolled. But at one point, the vizier just said “no, i MAKE you agree with me.” At that point, it was turned in to a conflict.

    In essence, “concrete action” was interpreted as “I demand that the story goes this way” or “my character forces you to agree with him, whether you like it or not.” I wish for the life of me I could remember where I saw this example, it was either on lumpley.com (bakers own blog) or in the forge, but I can’t seem to find it.

    Anyway, good set of casts. It was interesting seeing how different play styles lead to different games.

    Ah, found it. Here’s the thread I was thinking of:

    That’s a great thread, Timo. It really opens up your narrative choices in IaWA. Now I gotta play again to try these rules out. Play a really heavily political session and see how it works.

    I loved the music in Prince of Persia! Where did you get a hold of the songs?
