Writing In-Character

I’m really enjoying reading the Goody-White-speaks-to-the-reader explanatory text in Goody White’s Book of Folk Magic. She is an interesting mix of conservative matron, no-nonsese midwife, and pious layperson with an awareness that there’s more to the world than what her religion tells her.

So much of what I did on Paizo’s design team was neutral rules text that it’s really refreshing for me to look at words that were written as a conversation from a teacher to a student (which I then get to “translate” into rules text).

Anyway, fun!
