I am an avid RP and tabletop gamer, currently designing a tabletop skirmish game of my own. It is a hobby of mine to sit down with a core book for a game and decipher its system.

comment How do I escape the Quicksand Box?
In 7th Sea they have a Campaign Handout that you can use to get a sense of what the players want. It's fairly game neutral when it comes down to it. Since hotlinking doesn't work as well in comment: alderac.com/7thsea/resources/7thsea-gmcampaignsetuphandout.pdf

comment How do I escape the Quicksand Box?
My problem is that my players don't usually have backstories to work with until they play the characters for a couple sessions. Especially with how the group meshes this gets muddy.

+1, on ad hoc game sessions I have fallen into the "what do you guys want to do" trap.

comment How do I escape the Quicksand Box?
I agree. When I run games, the plots have s central stem, which could be considered the rails but I have no problem with the players walking from station to station instead of riding the express.
