Here's the situation:
Lets say I've got a player who has a strong desire to play 'proud, arrogant characters' like Dwarves and Wolfen Quattoria in rifts...
Characters that, to be portrayed to his enjoyment, would demand an aire of 'Hush your whining, silly manling!' or 'it takes time to earn the respect of a dwarf' kind of thing.
Would you join a table with that character? How would you interact with it?
*shrug* It would entirely depend on how 'over the top' it was at the table. Something minor and on occasion? Meh. All the time every session over and over in every conversation loudly and repetitive? Deal-breaker.
What if you were thinking about making this table your regular weekly table and you found out the player 'gravitates to this type of character consistantly across several campaigns.'
Would probably grate on us (as in, both me and my group). We probably wouldn't be that tolerant of it over time.
No two gamers are alike and who wants them to be?
<quietly raises hand...>
(BTW - there is such a thing as mutually incompatible gamers, styles, and/or personalities. It's real.)
