Hi, I'm Tod Foley. I'm an RPG designer and interactive developer who's been exploring emergent narrative systems since the 90s.
I'm the author of "Watch the World Die", a collaborative apocalypse-generation game. I'm also the author of several RPG systems and adventure modules for Iron Crown Enterprises. Here they are: http://asifproductions.com/systems/roleplaying.html
I sometimes produce large-scale semi-scripted narrative experiences I call "Hypertheater" events, which are like a cross between LARPs and branching plays.
I view RPG design as high art, and gamemastering as a set of didactic techniques for enabling complex symbolic communication and psychological exploration through immersive narrative. This requires artfulness, fortitude, resourcefulness and compassion, in addition to general knowledge and storytelling skills. I believe that if we lived in a sane world, a GM would need a therapist's license.
