If we define “glitches” (aka “exploits”) in TTRPGs as extant game mechanics that- when pushed to their utmost logical limits (especially in ways that beings in the campaign world without knowledge to the rules of the game)- generates unforeseen and unintended results, then I would have to say I would tend to avoid them. I never did the Bag of Rats trick. I never did a CoDzilla build, etc. That stuff didn’t interest me.Would you avoid glitches to support the simulation, or would you use every tool available to win?
And FWIW, I never saw any of the players I gamed with for 18 years do anything similar. At least one of them was a math guy, so he probably saw the abuse potential before most of the others might have. We also had a couple of game programmers and serious online gamers in the group, so you’d expect them to see that stuff as well.
But the thing is, I don’t see the original post in this thread as presenting an exploit. There’s definite plusses and minuses to each ability presented.
