I have begun work on the designer diary. But, I was thinking - what do YOU want to hear about most? Mechanics? Design process? Specific rules? Why decisions were made? Specific rules? Something else?

I want to make sure that his has meaning to you all.

Although I am most interested in learning how the game works, I also like to know how the game developed. Maybe you can include little blurbs about the development of whatever aspect of the game you are talking about.

I think a Designer Diary is usually a narrative on how certain design elements evolved as the game was developed. It's always interesting to me when a designer reveals what the original mechanics were, and how many of those made it into the final design.

Agreed. I have written designer notes once before and they went over well. I just want to make sure that you all get the items that are of interest.

I think I will publish them in sections with each one being about a particular topic from inspirational (theme, etc.) to mechanical (rules, components, etc.). That way it will not be a slog for people to find notes that are relevant to their interest. And I will be able to put them out at a reasonable clip.

I am on it.

Haha. Not my proudest moment.... That will not be in any designer notes.
