I was describing to a friend the other day what the Elthos RPG is about and why I created it. Her response was really interesting. After I had said that it was a rules-light system designed for easy play and freedom to create your own worlds, she said that her it's the sort of thing her mom would be excited about. Apparently her mom is an artist type who finds the concept of RPGing really interesting, and likes to play, but is just not that into the game mechanics aspect (at all). Too much math. Too hard to remember. Too much work. But she likes the collaborative story making aspect. Gee... maybe there is a market for rules light games among ... Moms? Hey ya never know.
