The significance of plot without conflict - still eating oranges
Does plot necessarily hinge on conflict? No. Such claims are a product of the West’s insularity. For countless centuries, Chinese and Japanese writers have used a plot structure that does not have conflict “built in”, so to speak. Rather, it relies on exposition and contrast to generate interest. This structure is known as kishōtenketsu.

Everything you know about ARGs is WRONG
Interesting stuff. Since it's so expensive to create Story-Games, perhaps we should be employing the ingenuity of the players more to create the puzzles for the other players. User-generated content (or the democratisation of creativity), is the solution to scaling things like this.
