[00:27] Intro to the show. Amazing experiences gaming with Avery McDaldno, Shawn Hayworth, and Matthew Klein.
[03:26] Do you seek to get an emotional response consciously in game, or do you let it occur as a result of the action in the game?
10:40] Does this ever backfire and force an emotion that is artificial?
[12:30] How does it happen? How do you know that your group is ready to play an emotional game?
[20:25] Prime your emotional responses upfront. Example: Bliss Stage, Monsterhearts, Ribbon Drive.
[25:47] Finding the safety valve – looking at the system and playing good faith.
[28:20] Game length affecting emotional capacity. Intensity wearing you down.
