So even now, several months into the lifecycle of the Dungeons and Dragons adventure game (4th edition) we still have a fundamental disconnect.
WE being the gaming community at large. I was originally going to RANT RANT RANT,
But that is unneccesary at this time.
Instead, I have a question. An open call, if you will. Can somebody PLEASE define role-playing? Somebody will be a wise-ass and link the wiki stub, so I'll just get it out of the way.
Specifically, I'd like to know how or why one game would have it in any more or less abundance than any other. You folks are incredibly bright, but you bicker over minor details WAAAAAAAAY too much.
Step up to the podium. I'd like to know what YOU define as role-playing. If you'd rather lurk, that's fine, but your opinion might just actually matter here, so I encourage you to comment. Otherwise you are either lazy or a pussy :-)
SOUND OFF or write a blog post of your own. I'll be watching.
