I know this feeling :P
Clear, and I might even use this for a couple small things I might need to clean up in my game (just to smash out some cobwebs, give it some polish around some neglected edges etc)
This is a pearl/ one of the best things you've designed.
Haha, I like "radiant habit" lol.
Acccctually, (slots into some other maps he has)
Whoa... (cuz I realised what radiant habit meant so linked some other maps to it)
Oh shit yeah. Man, you deserve a beer for this one.
If people don't know what the fuck he is saying here, you don't know nightgame (imo)
It isn't ALL of game, but like, its like 1 fifteenth of it presented all neat and tidy. Takes some serious mental ability to do that, and quite some generosity to share.
Very well done ij...
If you were on stage I'd give you a slow clap, to start a standing ovation.
Nah, really cool man, real cool
Concentric circles from the top right.
You can thank me later :P
Then you can clean this up (you'll know how)
Edit: Ah I see now...
It is a ratio.
Of how much control you give her
Discovery - Something happening to me (something happening is bottom left)
Yeah man! This is it. I've been looking for this
I've been too scattered to develop anything like it myself.
This is pure gold.
Literally, if I had a bar of gold, and the choice between this, I'd choose the gold, buuuut I'd be really close to choosing this instead :P
Nah just kidding, I would choose this.
Its great, it is what I was kinda killing myself for not being able to develop.
Thanks man, really. This thing takes 10 years of painstaking work to sort of develop.
Frankly, its fantastic.
It is a precursor to your 9th symphony
Some interesting stuff here about the process itself.
Let me attempt to break down my understanding of it.
1.) General reading/listening/viewing PU theory - done far from infield time.
2.) Specific analysis - listening and analyzing to audio/video of your approaches, posting about sticking points - also done far from field time
3) Drills - rehearsing material (banter flash cards), improv exercises - done not right before but closer than 1 and 2
4) Mental preparation - getting in state (listening to music/comedy) and mentally rehearsing approaches (done immediately prior to field time)
5). In field - being present mostly. Only think about roles you are trying to play, or preopening things to observe and tease on
Is this about right?
(I don't really do 4, I noticed...)
How much time do you guys devote to each point?
That's a lot of left brain stuff and little right brain stuff. I think the point of this thread is that you don't need any of those things.
- Find 2-3+ things that work for you
- Make a picture/visualization of those 2-3+ things. Look at the picture to remember them and their associated emotional states.
- Go out into the field
Also there is no "getting" in state. You're in the field, you pay attention to how you feel, you already are in state. You can choose to responsd/react in a playful manner, sexual manner, or any other state that's positive, by reacting that way you're entering different states.
The Qlue, simple perspectives on life.
I thought the left and right brain stuff is pretty even there. 1-2 left, 4-5 right, 3 in the middle, actually.
Maybe you are saying making sure to spend enough time in all 5 is only necessary when you have a lot of improvement to do - (eg in my case there is no such thing as 2-3 things that work)?
Both ijjjji and you seem to suggest visualizing prior to the field does help..maybe "getting in state" is imprecise terminology as to why
