And now for something completely different... Storytime!

I'm going to do something different again this week. I've been thinking a lot about stories lately; in particular, about how games that involve storytelling (such as Gloom or Fiasco or most tabletop RPGs) are so satisfying because they follow Freytag's Pyramid.

So I thought I'd share one of my favourite stories. This is the story of Alice. I first heard this story when I was in middle school, and a professional storyteller came and told us some stories. So now I will share the story with you.




I have many other stories, not all gaming related, and not all fictional. If this seems to be a popular thing, perhaps I will share more stories with you in the future. But for now, I hope you enjoyed this departure from my normal format, and I will see you again next week. Until then,

Game on!
