Three principles of leftist play.
1. No one is entitled to authority
Consensual enjoyment by the group is more important than any rule, regardless of provenance, or individual, regardless of experience.
2. Good play does not require authority
Adherence to authority does not make play more valid, and no part of a fictional world can be truly ‘real’ or ‘authentic’.
3. Play is what we make it
Play is creative, flexible, and nearly infinite in form. Labels can be useful to describe play or set expectations, but we are not beholden to them.
