referees play with traveller - designing pretty scenery with fantastic creatures, imagining engaging cultures with thousand-year histories, growing interesting non-player characters with epic motivations. but players want action.

One can wing it
"winging it", combined with crude off-the-cuff dice-driven determinations, allows instant and detailed response to a given game situation.

Perhaps we should design more system play enviornments and less adventures.
players frequently are not interested in environments.
