Ive been thinking of what types of conflict to roll for in my game: interesting, significant conflicts. And as part of that process, Ive been thinking about different types of conflict, and if there are some types of 'conflict' you just dont want to be bothered treating as a conflict at all.
So I made a list of types of conflict. and I came up with fightin and talkin. And then I maybe 'challenging situations' as a third type.
Is that it, does it all come down to fightin and talkin and maybe a few challenging situations? My personal definition of a challenging situation is something that dosent involve fightin or talkin, but is a task that is being performed under pressure. Like defusing a bomb, or competing in some kind of contest.
Does all interesting conflict basically involve being in opposition to another character? Like maybe the bomb defuser vs the bomb maker? Or the other competitor in the archery contest, etc...
