Hello everyone, I am Luca
Morini, an italian Ph.D. Student in education and communication on a quest for the Holy Grail of community based game design, or "world
making", as I like to call it quoting good old Neil Postman. Well, after wandering quite a bit within and without the web, I was
able to assemble this (most assuredly incomplete) "Master List of Lists" of resources, both community generated and simply
free, to share with you all, in the hopes that you will find it useful and helpful.

I'm posting this almost everywhere in game related communities, especially those that have a specific forum for game
design. The first thing I learned while doing this kind of research is indeed that it's impossible to create something new alone, as this is a puny
list that sorely needs the care and participation of the true experts, you, to become something more: a resource for everyone who
wants to embark in the adventure, science and art that is building playful spaces. I am therefore setting up both a wiki
, to allow for inter-site discussion, and a blog , to better illustrate my motives and to tell the epic tales around these cooperative efforts, which I
hope you will find worthy and interesting.

So here it comes, THE MASTER LIST OF LISTS. Hope you will enjoy it.

Stress is when you wake up screaming & you realize you haven't fallen asleep yet.
Don't force it, get a larger hammer.

Thank you for the contributions The_splat, I'll take a bit of time to read through them and I'll integrate them within the list! However, the bigger it becomes the more it needs to be better organized...If you people have any idea, please share, I'm here to help but I need you help to do it well :)!
