B/X Known World
That’s me.That's fair, I'll say that the Narrative vote is the shocking of the two to me. As limited as Expression is as an actual goal, I'd always thought that old game found Narrative downright blasphemous, if not entirely antithetical to good DMing
And I’m the opposite. I don’t care about narrative in D&D. I have writing and reading for that. Whatever story comes out of playing the game is emergent, not artificially imposed. I can’t stand railroading or illusionism. Player agency is king. I run mostly sandboxes. I like immersion. I love exploring the world. I also prefer the old-school hard-scrabble style of play.Oh! NO NO NO NO NO!
Narrative is essential IME and IMO to good DMing! Narrative IS the story in the game to me.
So, that is my POV as an old gamer (well, not age old maybe... "oldish" certainly... but I've been playing D&D in one form or another for over 40 years... so, yeah).
My three are Fantasy, Challenge, and Discovery.
