“Aggregate cognizance” has always been a made-up, cool-sounding phrase. But the name’s meaning became apparent while I organized my thoughts and figured out what I wanted to accomplish by resurrecting this blog. I really want to bring disparate ideas together (the aggregate part) to discuss how I run my games, view various subjects within tabletop RPGs, and hopefully provide tools and insights that others will find valuable (the cognizance part).
A fresh start seems the best way to accomplish this - both the blog platform and the subject matter. In the past few years, a lot has changed for me personally, in tabletop RPGs, and the world in general. Aggregate Cognizance’s focus will mainly be on fiction-first and narrative-oriented games and concepts, but hopefully there will be useful subjects for everyone.
