"Games not originally written in English" would be a frickin' amazing theme, to be fair.

To throw another controversial suggestion into the ring, how about

NO DICE ALLOWED

Gets my vote.

would also be fun.

Another idea would be a variation on "Everyone lives!" or "Feelgood"

Feelgood and #EveryoneLives? Do you want to exclude half the GM's from running stuff!

"Feelgood" is a term for the various games that have PCs acting non-violently and having happy endings. Tropes seem to be either solving people's problems through love and understanding (Golden Sky Stories) and/or travel (Chuubo's…, Ryuutama). Maid, InSpectres, and FreeMarket are other examples. The One Ring is just about on the edge of that, with PCs having a moral code and working to protect and nurture what's good rather than destroying what's bad.

I used a misplaced winky and words. :oops:

I get what feelgood's about, no problem. I do share Steve's sentiments, however. :)

Feelgood was the main mood of your A Dirty World game at Furnace, right?

It was a total hoot. I'm still laughing now. And so's Dan.

And you people want to replace it with A Chirpy World or A Cuddly World or A Fluffy World with bunnies and kittens.

I'm not standing for it I tells ya!
