    What do you mean when you say “story-driven” adventure/game? Are you trying to say “character-driven”? Can a “dungeon-crawl” adventure ever be story-driven? Is a story-driven adventure “plot-specific”? How would you describe the characteristics of a “non story-driven” adventure?

      Ron, you asked kind of a huge set of questions and I was while I was responding I got to about 400 words and realized I should just write a blog post about it so that’ll be up sometime today or tomorrow. Good stuff and thanks for responding.
