I suggest you to go back to page 1 of this exchange and really read my point of view expressed numerous times over the 6 pages this topic now is. It is unbelievable that I am now made out as the bad guy in this scenario when I have stated numerous times that eventhough I like the RAW I think everyone should do what suits their table. It might not be "for me" but ti each his own, however slacking people of or calling their games (and I paraphrase) Michael Bayesque and then wanting to play the victim of being engaged in a discussion YOU started and where you (mind you, not me) talked down about other people's games is the limit. I told you once I was done discussing this with you and I am now strenghtened in that descission.
You have a bad 'motivator' for sure.
Hmm, I seem to be mistaken. I distinctly recall someone saying something to the effect of "well if you can't see that is awesome, then nobody can help you"...but I must be crossing threads because you're right, you didn't say that. Maybe you did in another thread, or perhaps it was part of the "edited for rudeness" post...or it was someone else in another thread that I thought was you. I can't find it now, so I apologize for that misrepresentation.
And you're right, I did not need to resort to the MB reference. I really don't like your example of this Talent use *at all*, but I didn't need to be rude about it. My rudeness was misinformed by my misinterpretation above...vicious spiral, etc. So I apologize for that too.
But you aren't doing yourself any favours by painting my rejection of your sense of awesome as a wholesale rejection of the narrative mechanic, which is what both you and Grimmshade have now done. So out of one side of your keyboard you're saying "do what you want at your table" and out of the other you're saying "wow, you can't even wrap your head around narrative roleplay". That's not exactly honest, and is pretty condescending. But I'll forgive the condescension in light of the MB reference...
Anyway, I've been pretty clear about accepting the general use of the Talent. I've "liked" posts by people on both sides of this argument because they presented them well. I just reserve the right to decide what is "awesome" and what is not at my table. And actually, I probably wouldn't need such guidelines...I know my players and they wouldn't allow it amongst themselves, so I probably wouldn't have to say anything.
