- Please don't fuck with narrativism. I want to explore dungeons and slay dragons, not get involved in some kind of poorly assembled new-wave shit*. If I want fantasy and storytelling, I play The Burning Wheel.
- Similarly, please don't bother in creating something new. You already have the Fantasy RPG in your hands: don't screw it up (again). We love six-ability-scores, race/class, hit points, experience points, levels (all kind of levels) and Vancian magic.
- I want to play a game that allows me to run newbies as well as uber-geeks at the same time. I want a game in which one can spend 5 minutes as well as several weeks on building a 1st-level character. I want a game that doesn't make me feel bitching if my dungeon kills a character.
- Type III's just fine, except for the fact it takes one hell of a time to read through all the character customization options (let alone learn how they work). I don't want to waste my time building a singular high level NPC. Fuck that, I have a world to run.
*I'm not saying new-wave rpgs are shit: I'm saying any new-waved mod of D&D would be shit. Remember 2e? That was shit. A shitload of fucking shit.
