To Cailleach and Corwyn: Both your reactions seem fine to me -- it all depends on what you personally can tolerate, and how you feel it's best to react to a situation. Ladyvira may not be the greatest roleplayer out there, but that's okay with me; I'm not without my roleplaying quirks and flaws either, so I might as well play along and have a good time regardless. If you want to try to fix the other player, teach them how things are done, put them in their place, or simply "not tolerate" their behavior, of course that's up to you.Regarding the Average Joe vs. Relative of Famous Hero question: A lot depends on how this is done, but you're right that the Average Joe is *usually* more plausible. There's another problem here, though. If you take away a roleplayer's connection to a certain place or person, he or she is going to ask you: "Well fine, then how do I tie my character into the lore somehow? Is my only option to be just another nobody who came out of nowhere?" and "Does it really matter if I get the lore wrong by some fraction of a detail? What's the real point of tying into the lore anyway?" To Zegim: Thanks for telling me! It's really great to see that my articles are helpful in some way. Encouraging remarks and insightful commentary make this blogger's day!
