@gomad - perhaps you can point a bit of your answer towards your prep-work; I'd view that as personal experience. In my answer on The Directive, a lot of what will be interesting to the OP IMO was towards the help in preparation, i.e. story seeds, direction in GMing, ready-set intrigue, etc.

Welcome to RPG.SE onitek. In general, on RPG.SE link only answers are frowned upon. I'd suggest taking a look at the tour to get an idea how the site operates, then the help center to get answers to any specific questions. For this particular answer, it could be improved by telling (a) exactly what the link is and how it qualifies as an answer to the question and (b) why it's not a perfect solution. If you can't answer those adequately, you might look into deleting your answer as not to attract downvotes. Again welcome, and enjoy the site!

I think it's a ... stretch to say that the question is about parenting.

What's the difference between Make-believe and Role-playing in your eyes? Because... I look at them as the same thing. Cowboys and Indians is LARPing without a system, IMO- so I wanted to get your take on that in terms of what you're looking for. Even your examples are RPing to a certain mindset.
