Apparently "fluff" (generally used to describe setting and background type material) leaves a bad taste in the mouths of certain gamers (see comments in my previous post). I understand why. It can be seen as a negative description, almost dismissive in nature. Besides, doesn't the porn industry employ "fluffers" to keep the male performers "ready"? Don't we already have enough porn in our RPGs already? ;)
So, what alternative forms do we have for "fluff" in gaming usage? While we are at it, we may as well find an alternative for "crunch."
No more Fluff & Crunch! Maybe Meat (rules) & Potatoes (descriptive text).
Gygax challenge map - I think the map is done. I'm leaving some room for additions. A few random ideas. The drej is abandoned but maybe inhabitanted by bandits now. Slain...
