Bravo, Tadgh. I agree with the detractors that coining new lingo when old words already suffice is presumptuous and annoying. I disagree with them that there are old words that work for the concepts you are describing. So you are perfectly justified in proposing new lingo. Conflation of words/concepts is a huge enemy in any sphere of thought, and especially so in emerging fields such as videogame design. I've been very inspired by your aggressive stance against conflating the words 'story' and 'world' in the past, so I'm happy to see your continuing battle to clarify concepts.
Right on Tadhg. You're a big inspiration to me. I'm working on a pretty epic YouTube video about this subject. I'll let you know when it's done.
