QuoteAnother point you're touching is that you can't be creative on command and some people just aren't, at all. I'm not sure I understand what your point is, here.

Quote from: Frank Tarcikowski on February 13, 2009, 11:39:08 AMMy experience with WuShu and sometimes PtA has been that narration rights, especially when combined with a "style over substance" mindset, lead to a mode of play where people, for lack of a better word, neglect the Shared Imagined Space. They don't care for details, they don't care for consistency (whether based on genre conventions or "realism"), they don't pay attention to what their fellow players establish.
Quote from: Callan S. on March 05, 2009, 07:50:36 PMThat 'inner logic of the SIS' is, in my words, just an artistic expression as well. It's quite possible for one person at the table to see some violation while another just shrugs. I take that as evidence the person who see's the violation is actually making an artistic expression themselves. Everyone who sees 2+2 = 5 can see an error - how come one guy is shrugging at this alleged game world logic violation but the other is adamant? That's because its just the other guys artistic expression. There is no real logic being broken here - there is only an artistic expression (the expression being that logic) that someone elses contribution is not forfilling.Which basically says "My art is above yours and your art should conform to it". Well, usually it avoids any ownership clause by the person refering to the SIS, rather than my artistic contribution. Indeed I think it's often put that way in a dream like way, rather than deliberate, like one might act upon a dream world while sleeping, not as if it is the artistic creation of ones sleeping mind (which is it), but if it is THE world* and something that is nothing to do with ones own artistic expression (creative denial?).
