comment What non-RPG hobbies are complementary to the RPG addiction?
In a lot of ways video game playing is the anti-thesis of RPGs. There's a strong correlation between enjoyment of the two (I certainly enjoy both) but few video games tap into the same themes of imagination in the same way as the other activities you mention, even if they utilise similar settings and themes. I think the similarities are very superficial.

comment Minimum intelligence for thief in AD&D 1st edition
Isn't there also something of an issue with Intelligence as a broad concept? A lot of meanings of intelligence are actually dictated by the player rather than the character. Intelligence as an attribute in the game is a more abstract concept and as a result doesn't apply particularly neatly to thieves.
