Comments on 2019-11-27 The Metagaming I encourage

2,3 and 4 I wholly agree with.

1 not so much. As a player, I find it dull that meta gaming concerns should supercede my playing my character. I find it more interesting to play “as if” my character didn’t know these things. Same way my low INT Barbarian is fun to play because he’s not as smart as like to think I am and frequently makes very... Simplified decisions.

I get the incentive for DMs to get creative but players should want more from themselves.

Sure. And I don’t mind players playing ignorant characters. But at the same time, I don’t make it a point to enforce this if the players aren’t up to it.
