Gaming background in D&D (Basic & 1st ed. AD&D), Traveller, Judge Dredd, Call of Cthulhu, Rolemaster but have played pretty much only Glorantha-based games this millenium, excepting games at cons, with kids, and some other one-offs. I like reading rulebooks, though.

comment Was Chaosium's founder first to buy a copy of D&D?
@SevenSidedDie "put the red herring to rest" - His info is excellent, but there are possible answers to the fine-detail part of this qn that are consistent with what I know of the situation that would suggest the naive interest of the story is not entirely a red herring. And thanks: your suggested change strikes me as sound: I shall add it, and justify the interest of the fine-detail bit to some extent.

comment Is it a bad idea to steal characters from other media?
Robin Laws wrote a bit about growing interesting PCs from Hollywood-cliche characters - this is sound advice. I should go find a link, I suppose.

comment How do I get my PCs to not be a bunch of murderous cretins?
@K.L.- I love the picture you paint of your group. To relate this to my summary, the gaming contract is going to affect which options are going to work. Democratic GMing makes option #4 clearly unacceptable.

comment Narrativist Gaming: How do you transition more traditionally-trained players into them?
@BESW: Well I could edit in words to the effect of "The problem is maybe that your players are responding to the anti-narrativist incentives built into the XP system, so removing that might help", but this diagnosis is mentioned by others, so I doubt its lack in my answer explains the downvotes.

I'd be very interested to hear what you tried and how it worked out...

comment Narrativist Gaming: How do you transition more traditionally-trained players into them?
@Graham: maybe, but this is the simplest solution that could possibly work, and I think your answer sees this as a problem that must be solved by the GM doing a lot of work that I think the players likely will not appreciate.

comment Would the alignment of a character with multiple personality disorder change?
@KRyan - I've rewritten the 1st paragraph: not all personality switching is DID, and I've provided a ref to that effect.
