Focusing the Game

2007 Feb 21

Last night, Josh hinted that he might prefer a more focused game than the open-ended system I was writing. So now I’m thinking about making the letter-writing game be about espionage, either the Walsingham conspiracy (Elizabethan spymasters!) or Civil War-era spy networks (which involved numerous notable women). But I guess I’ll need a new title, then. Maybe The Greenhow Ring or The Babington Plot.

Bonus: Just got off the phone with my dad and he said that noted playwrite and general rapscallion Christopher Marlowe was reputed to be part of a Catholic conspiracy against Queen Elizabeth (organized by Mary Queen of Scots), hence his mysterious death in a London barfight. Hmm…
