This letter reminds me a lot of my mother (and to an lesser extent, myself). Whenever dad would ask "where do you want to go out to eat", mom would, inevitably reply with "I don't care, wherever you want to go." I think my mother is, honestly, just that passive. It's not that she doesn't care but she doesn't want to ruin anyone's experience by suggesting somewhere that they didn't want to go. And she knows that no one is going to suggest somewhere that she doesn't like. (My mother always puts everyone else first - annoyingly so sometimes.)Honestly, if "Sam" never wants to choose what to do there's an obvious solution to this, as far as I can tell. Make Sam pick the server (since you have 2-man guilds all over the place) and you pick the activity. If that's too much to ask of "Sam", then get creative in other ways. I like the idea of eat of you making a list and picking items off one list and then the other. If *that* won't work then tell Sam to find a die from a board game and produce a list of 6 or 10 items (whatever count the die is) and decide what to do based on his roll of the die. He's not making the decision but he's at least rolling the die and contributing in some way.
