After seeing the subject being discussed in the Tyranny thread, I decided to finally create a thread since I believe this could lead to interesting discussions. The way I see it, there seems to be mostly four categories of players: -Those who place themselves in the shoes of the protagonist and react accordingly. -Those who create a character and, well, roleplay. If you fall in this category, to which extent do you do it and are ready to penalize your character by making sub-optimal choices? Do you have any specific character type you tend to often create (aligments, by exemple)? -Those who are on the powergaming side of the spectrum and tend to do what gives the most XP/Loot. -And, finally, those who simply do whatever feels the most fun, wthout too much considerations of playing a consistent or powerful character. Of course, people tend to play different games in different ways or mix those. So, how do you usually play your RPGs?
