Culturally Specific GMing

2010 Oct 19

So I’m walking home from work, thinking about the MC guidelines for Ghost Opera. And it strikes me that I know exactly what principle #1 for the MC is going to be, because the MC represents Heaven & Earth, and Lao Zi says:

天地不仁
以萬物為芻狗

heaven & earth are not sentimental;
(they) regard everything as straw dogs (i.e. disposable)

How’s that for a culturally specific version of “look through crosshairs”?
