Gentlemen, starting tomorrow we become more than ourselves. We become a living, breathing soul, who has a personality, who has motivation, who has emotion. Though you may feel otherwise, these characters are not us. Please remember that while you may do something in a situation, while you may want something in a room, your character may not. Of course, that is not always the case if you modeled your character after yourself, but as far as I can see that is not the case. Your will be compensated for staying in character. That means while in real life you might not punch a police officer in the face, if your character would then doing so would grant you more experience. On the flip side, going out of character can and will lead to rather… unfortunate consequences. From losing your alignment to losing your character, plenty of reasons to not switch things up. If your character is doing something uncharacteristic of themselves for a reason, such as a secret twist that nobody will see coming, please talk to the DM.
If you want to do solo encounters please talk to me. We can work that out and get shit done. Naturally that means, in a roundabout way, that investing more time in the game rewards your character with more power.
Please make sure your characters are completed.
