Defeat system snobbery

 Taken from "Different worlds", issue #7 (April/May 1980).

This was food for thought for me some days ago when i read it.

I still don't know if i basically agree with the author or not.

I consider myself kind of a "system snob" person, as the author calls them, but at the same time it's true whay he says-namely, that a good DM would be able to create a wonderful playing experience even using a fantasy heartbreaker system.

But i am particularly fond of his conclusions, that is: go and play (and come to know and make acquaintance with) as many games as you can in your life. That may only benefit you. 1 2 3

considering the year DiTillio wrote this article I guess he was really ahead of its time.

This is the same Larry DiTillio who was a head story guy on Babylon 5 and a writer for the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe animated series. CoC fans may remember his work on The Masks of Nyarlathotep.
