The Dresden Files RPG - Television Tropes & Idioms
Okay, this is blantantly self-serving in one way, since I worked on the DFRPG, and the conceit was my idea, so yeah. And also, it is squee-worthy for something I worked on to be TVTrope’d.
But the other way is also interesting: the value and the perspectives that the audience of a work takes away from that work, sometimes in tune, sometimes discordant, with the music the creator(s) were intending.
In any case, as with any random Wiki- or TVT-dive, plenty of fun links to follow and lose hours of your time. ;)
The Dresden Files RPG (DFRPG) is Evil Hat’s Tabletop RPG adaptation of the popular Urban Fantasy series of novels. After the events of Small Favor, Billy Borden and the Alphas have set out to make a monster-slaying manual for the 21st Century with the help of Harry Dresden, framing it as a roleplaying game so that people who are unaware of the supernatural won’t reject it outright. Their efforts produce two mud-splattered spiral-bound rough drafts with Harry, Billy, and Harry’s spirit friend Bob having conversations in the margins and on sticky notes about the rules, the setting, and whatever else happens to pop into their heads. The resulting commentary manages to be simulatenously informative and side-splittingly hilarious, making the books a worthwhile read even for those not interested in playing the game.
