I'd say the line between Slice of life and "Character based Drama" is a pretty "thin" one. But getting into the weeds of that needs more than 200 characters.

Right, but when you have "conflict" doesn't that require something more than SOL? Maybe not "save the world/Kill BBEG," but "solve the murder," "find the secret admirer," "pass the Wizard Exam," etc?

It can do! I have a magical SoL going at the moment and it has an overarching plot weaved in

If one were to set said SOL in a magic/psychic/mech-pilot school tho, wouldn't that "drama" still build up into "conflicts" that set off overarching plots? Does it only work in "real world" contexts?

It is such a wide and vast theme, it is hard to make successful ones or ones with "goals".

Hedgehawk 2 hrs ago
In SoL, the 'goals' become the drama and interpersonal connections/histories players make with each other. Plus setting in in places like a school/college for example give you a timeline to work with.

How does one make successful SOL as a GM, out of curiosity? I've never seen much appeal to them, I guess because I'm an action/adventure guy. How do you build "goals" or otherwise motivate Players?
