I didn't buy that argument in 4e and I don't but it now either. Whether a monster is or is not a part of the world is not, IMO, up to the statblock (which should be fairly generic). What makes it a part fo the world is the DM, and to a lesser extent the lore of the monster entry.
You don't have to buy it, but it's what I believe, in 4e and now.

My apologies, I wasn't trying to suggest that there is anything wrong in you believing that personally. Like I said, I don't completely agree with it either. We all have our own things we like and dislike (at the table and in life).

The issue I have is that you seem to extrapolate that to some universal truth, such as: "simplicity for simplicity sake." You seem to make everything an agenda as opposed to a difference in opinion / likes & dislikes.

@dave2008 and @Micah Sweet: Speaking as an outside observer, perhaps you could each provide ways in which you think the current version of D&D is or is not putting world before story? Because this back and forth, without examples, is not particularly illuminating.

(Though this also might be a good subject for another thread, since it seems pretty tangential.)

Yeah. I'm inclined to let it go.
