A couple of weeks ago, I picked up a used copy of Dicing With Dragons, a book about RPGs from 1982, and asked the TT community what I should do with it.

I’ve been holding off until I was ready to do something big with it, but last night I realized that I needed to start small.

I found this portion of the GMing chapter (entitled “Playing God”) intriguing:

A section of the hobby has put forward the argument that ready-made scenarios are actually harmful to ‘true’ role-playing. They claim that this leads to stereotyped play, with referees reading descriptions from a booklet, and relieving them of the need to think on their feet.

What do you think of this statement?
