I think it's a sign of intellectual and emotional good health that people can agree on some things, and yet look at some other things in a different way!So far as I can tell, he and I and @darkbard (to speak to commenters in these threads) are pretty much 100 % in agreement surrounding skilled play and surrounding all of the entangled issues in these threads.
Curiously, it’s @pemerton and @Campbell and @AbdulAlhazred where the daylight exists between my position and theirs (which is fascinating as I consider a Monty Python sketch in my head of all of the interlocutors we collectively disagreed with over the years on so many things, swilling their cup of wine in one hand while twirling their evil mustachios with the other and throwing their heads back to the sky in raucous, villainous laughter!).
But I've always wondered whether my preference for actor stance and inhabitation of character would one day affect the way I look at RPGs more generally. Apparently that day has come!
