Episode 135 - The Confused State of Rulebooks

January 6, 2018 @ 9:00 am

Recorded at Metatopia 2016

Presented by Joshua Yearsley, John Adamus, Dr. Jessica Hammer.

Writing and editing rulebooks is still a black art, not an empirical science. In this panel, Dr. Jessica Hammer and professional editors John Adamus and Joshua Yearsley hash out the state of the rulebook. What works? What doesn't? Why do so many professionals (including us!) disagree about how to write good rulebooks? Why are so many rulebooks still bad, and what can we do about it? We won't have all the answers - maybe you'll help us find some. It is somewhere between a panel and a roundtable. We'll certainly have things to say and discuss with each other, but we absolutely welcome audience input to figure out what the world's thinking about.

Apologies for the poor sound quality.
