    RPG Codex - Articles On Video Game Design
    GamesPosted by chrisd on Wednesday December 11, @03:18PM
    from the writing-about-games dept.
    chadeo writes "Ok all you arm chair game developers, listen up.
    Over at RPG Codex there are currently 4 articles, written by professionals in the industry, on RPG design.
    There is A Christmas lesson in CRPG design by Timothy Cain, Thoughts on RPG development by Leon Boyarsky, Hand of Gosh Darn Good Design by Chris Taylor, and Treatise on Combat to Pink Floyd by Gareth Davies.
    All of them are a great read, and you can join in the discussion with the authors and see how your ideas stack up.
    What do you think is the key to a great RPG?"

    I said on IRC, I'm suprised the server didn't fold like a cheap lawn chair.

    Shouldn’t the server's gravitational forces pull itself into some sort of black hole? I mean god, we go from about 3-4 people on a day to the triple digits.
