Choice & Simplicity

In real life, I’m a big proponent of keeping things as simple as possible. Keeping the balance between too much and too little choice in gaming is tricky, but I think worth it. For example, I doubt I could run a multi-year using only the original D&D box set and conversely I wouldn’t even bother trying to run a Pathfinder campaign using any Paizo rules source. My head would explode.

Perhaps this quote above all others encapsulates my view on choice at my table:

Every thing should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler.

–Albert Einstein

With that in mind, check out these choice- and simplicity-based posts:
