Adam Dray has provided a great service to all your RPG geeks who use LiveJournal -- a a listing of RPG related LJ feeds.

If you are actually thinking of playing with those skeletal Bliss Stage rules I sent out a bit ago, I have a group and character creation document that you might be interested in.

I want to write an article that is titled If I have gone further, it is because I have walked upon the corpses of those that have gone before and failed but the problem is that the title pretty much says it all.

I suppose the corpses are the other side of the shoulders of giants line I'm always throwing out.

Could be that the giants are the corpses, and you've been standing on dead giants' shoulders all this time.

What I want to know is, what are the corpses covering that you couldn't otherwise walk upon?

And it's only a half joking question. The other half is wondering if there's something worthwhile to be gleaned from this metaphor. Maybe you should go ahead and write the article.

OH. I thought you meant it literally.

Cuz, gross.

That should be the title of your next RPG.

Ethan -- mostly, it's just a pithy line. The point is that I learn as much (or more) from watching the failures of others as I do from watching the successes of others.

Joshua -- :-P

Dave -- It's pretty close to the theme of my present RPG(s). See my vidjagame notes in the LJ.

I would have phrased the theme of your current RPGs more like 'When I fail at last it is because I am no longer able to clamber over the piled corpses of my predecessors.' ;-)
