Miles Stroth’s genius is unbounded.
He does, however, prefer to use words to explain things.
I have translated his words into a simple flowchart for deciding what type of scene you are in. To discover the way you play each scene, go back a few days in this blog.
I’m not 100% comfortable with this, because we it implies a sequential decision making process, which isn’t how I experience it, but it does cut through the stuff and show you the 4 questions you need to ask to get to the heart of Miles’ 5 types of scenes most easily.
I did check the original hand drawn one of these with Miles, but I’ve made it prettier and it’s more elegant looking here.
