in the Status Quo a game initialisation starts with a long introduction of "how to play PBF" including the citation of the persons who enabled this great opportunity. However, most of this information is read exactly once, as preparation for the first PBF game.
My proposal wants to reduce this redundancy:
1) At a "prominent location" (e.g. pinned in the PBF forum), for the most common maps this kind of introduction is published. I would suggest the following standard set (which could be easily extended):
(*) 2nd edition, vanilla, no raven, no ToB
(*) DWD, vanilla, no raven, no ToB
(*) Essos Expansion Map1, no raven, no ToB
(*) Essos Expansion Map2, no raven. no ToB
2) A game intitialisation just starts with a link to the used map. If the game is a variant, this (usually small) rule changes are explained.
I argue that this "scientific citation practise" would improve traceability and the rule changes in a variant can be seen more clearly.
I am happy to hear your thoughts on this!
