AGC 142 November 30th 2010 (Taking a Contract Out On Your Players) (37:41)

With Mark and Mags. Carol had more chaos. Everyone's chaos and Mark's creative phase (and he did finish NaNoWriMo). DriveThruRPG Picks. Mark's dating woes, and how they relate to tonight's topic. Social Contracts! What are they and what form do they take? Out of the game itself. Shifting to in game concerns. House rules or no, and GM leeway. Large groups and LARP. Changes to your group. Watch out for gaming the system. Big things you need to cover. Mark's earliest RPG writing credit is now back up on e23. ExtraordinAgents is out, and maybe Mark will run it at ConGlomeration (which is also putting it's scheduling online).
