The first long game I played I didn't win. And I absolutely loved it. Someone else became King of Dragon Pass (I think the king of Tarsh), and although I had done a lot of the stuff necessary, I was left watching the ceremony from far behind. It felt *GOOD* to be able to play a game through, without being wiped out, and yet not winning. I was a part of wonderful events, I had an impact, but it felt like the game world didn't revolve around me. And KoDP is especially wonderful, because something like this may fail, and there isn't a clear "reason why". Sometimes you're the chosen one, sometimes not.

For all you who haven't lost the game yet - try it. It's a new kind of experience. ;)
