Strange. My style doesn't really reflect any of the ones given.

I play by RAW. I like deep, well-developed world building and consider logical consistency of vital importance. I prepare situations, not plots, so my players are the ones in the driver's seat. The world doesn't just sit there statically without them, but it also doesn't totally ignore their presence and impact either.

It feels a bit like someone saying "these are the five ways if doing things" and I just...do all of them. Other than maybe "module-only" since I almost never use modules?
