RPG Theory Glossary: X-Z
A term coined by Walt Freitag for an instance of play which is
not prioritizing any of the three Creative Agenda
possibilities in GNS. It is role-playing without doing anything
that is unexpected by the other participants. As he defines it,
zilchplay has an an agenda: "being told a story while engaging in
manipluation of some arcana that makes it appear and feel that
you're doing something of greater import than that."
Understanding: the "it" of Simulationism
zplay - liberating Sim and embarrassing Exploration!
