Plot Points, Sandboxes and Tales of Savagery
« on: September 02, 2015, 02:19:27 PM »
Recently been reading 50 Fathoms and I've been asked a few times whether or not Frozen Skies is a Plot Point Setting. Figured it was high time that I explained how I envisioned the Frozen Skies setting working in relation to all this.

I feel bad that I'm not getting more time to read and think through these. Things are just very hectic at the moment :(

I do like the sandbox/open ended setting thing though, vastly preferable to a really rigid story structure.
The duke, the wanderer, the philosopher, the mariner, the warrior, the strategist, the storyteller, the wizard, the wayfarer...
