I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

Please reread his question, that's not what he asked.

comment Why is the soft level-cap set at level 20, specifically?
You mean all the ones using the OGL and based off the d20 SRD that is a direct copy of D&D 3e? I think you have your answer there...

comment How do you deal with a player slowing the group because of excessive RP?
Is it him, or his character? Is he like that IRL and/or has multiple characters of his done the same thing?

Can you explain a little more by what you mean by "over-dramatization" taking time? If he's making decisions based on dramatic over practical reasons why is that more time? You say you like to RP too, what is different in the nature of how you are doing it?

Yeah, oddly, on all these kinds of question the OP claims "the rest of the group feels as they do" with no real proof, so I treat it as not all that relevant as it may or may not be true and also doesn't change the solution. Fine, "you and your friends need to read up on..."

In what way? Do you think you are all managing sharing of spotlight time well? Your question says "excessive RP" is the problem. Do you mean "guy just talks slow?" Feel free and clarify your question then, because it covers a lot of different issues that I have tried to speak to here. What does "time spent due to over-dramatization" even mean in your eyes?
