IME, that is equivalent to saying most players should play their characters in a way that is less fulfilling and fun.... players should see their characters pretty much in the same light as a GM sees NPCs. Y'know, as characters and not avatars of themselves.
I don't claim to be any authority on the subject, that's why I think that players should see their characters in the way that works the best for them, within the system they are playing. "Author stance" or whatever it's being called these days is certainly not inherently superior.
Nope, the main thing about Roleplaying games is roleplaying. Collective storytelling is, like, the main thing about Collective Storytelling games. Who'd a thunk?Isn't collective storytelling, like, the main thing about RPGs?
