Dang, I’d be all over that panel, it sounds great!

Can you talk a bit more about how the paragraph I quoted fits together? If here’s not the place, maybe in another post. I actually think I’m picking up on what you mean by “trite content” and how Jeep and Nordic larp have been responding to that.

But “oppressive social footprint”, “counterproductive procedures of play”, and “microaudience”, and how Cel*Style, Forge/OSR, and Failbetter/Elizabeth’s company are dealing with those things, respectively, I really don’t know.

I can draw my own conclusions and infer, of course! But I’d like to see you unpack these in a bit more detail, if you might. They’re probably painfully obvious!
