An interesting read.

There's a lot of good points here, and though it's aimed at PnP setups, the first four points in particular are awesome.

Aye, good catch!

In Scandinavia a lot of discussion is happening about LARP and RPG players and what makes a good player, I'm tempted to write up some points learned from that, in extension to this.

... When I'm not browsing the Andrune forum at work, that is... emoticon

Excellent.

I think often when people roleplay they get so caught up in the "roleplaying" aspect - being true to the character - they forget they're also supposed to be creating an interesting story and playing game. You can play the role of a hermit druid who sits in his grove meditating all day really well... but if you don't see anyone, and don't do anything, its a wasted effort. If you need to invent excuses as to why that character visits the city, or involves himself in a treasure hunt, do so.

Sometimes you need to suspend disbelief, a little bit, for the sake of a fun story.
