About two years ago, I wrote about player and GM types. At the time I said I was “Director first and Provider second. I do like the occasional Plotmeister session. I used to be a World Builder.” A while ago, Michael Wolf wrote about D&D 4E, and I replied with a link to Dissociated Mechanics, a (long) article about the effects of the rules being hard to imagine and explain in common sense terms. Stuart Robertson picked it up and produced a list of of differences between the various editions. This in turn motivated me to try and determine where I fit in.

Bold is what I prefer:

What a cool list of properties. If you go through the list for yourself, add 1 if you picked the same, subtract 1 if you picked the other option, skip if one of us had no preference. What’s your score? Mine is 11. ;)

Very interesting to hear your thoughts on this! :)

My preference depends on my mood, but is usually the same as you and for many of the same reasons.

That also reminds me of an older post regarding affordance of games – picking systems because they encourage the kind of game play I like.

Also goes to show minor these concerns are compared with just getting along on a personal level.

Nice people trump game style – anytime!
