Watch the Table

When we talked about dramatic games, we talked about watching what goes on around the table, working to support the other Players’ character actions, and working toward safe cathartic emotional bleed. In action adventure games, by contrast, we talk about watching what goes on on the table. This includes maps, miniatures, dice, character sheets, and rules.In a dramatic game, scenes can float from location to location without too much concern for continuity of action. But in action adventure games, maps are important in determining where and how the action takes place.
