Posted By: Moreno R.So he question at the base of this thread is "this undefined thing can be compatible with something that most of you don't know what it is?". And chaos ensues.If the thread opener is still interested in his question, my suggestion is to drop both "OSR" and "story now" and simply use a couple practical examples about what he wants: "I like to play like this, but I want to get this, it's possible to get both at the same time?"
Posted By: lumpleyDeliverator: So what happens, I propose, is that every given group playing D&D is going to (a) figure out which side of the line they prefer, and play there; (b) wander back and forth across the line seamlessly, as Zak says (the old Forge idea of the "instance of play" is useful here); or (c) get all muddled up by the line, and not be able to figure out why sometimes the game's fun and sometimes it isn't.So yeah, a local play culture of type (a) where "D&D players aren't interested in morality in gaming," totally happens. Elsewhere there are local play cultures of type (a) where D&D is a great medium for fantasy drama and melodrama. Woe to the kid who moves across town and tries to join a D&D group there! That kid's going to find out that to other people, D&D is a different, incompatible game.
