GNS Query

I'm going to be (hopefully soon) writing an essay about various proposals for an "extra Creative Agenda" to be added to the Gamism, Narrativism, Simulationism triad. The three serious proposals which I am familiar with are the Social Mode (with Emily Care Boss as its primary proponent), Zilchplay (with Walt Freitag and Nathan Banks as its main proponents), and Humor (with me as its primary proponent.)

Historically, are there any others? Can you point me to Forge threads?

This is not intended for you to brainstorm new "possible fourths," although I'd be interested in hearing about them in another place, like the Forge's GNS forum. This is mostly a historical query.

P.S. Forge-style link indices for all of the three mentioned, most especially zilchplay, would be much appreciated.

For a brief overview of Humor and Social Mode, see this comment on the GNS Open House thread in my LJ.

Which, if anyone still wants to comment on it...

Can I ask you about the "Humor" CA?

If Sim is the pursuit of a particular asthetic quality, why wouldn't humor just be Sim?
