Quote:Now if you come up with something that actually compares to a gaming situation, and not being a jerk then I would tell you how I respond to game related situations.
But that's just my point, wraith - those situations I was talking about involve the DM being a jerk. Thus, it's completely irrelevant whether some Rule Zero line in the rulebook gives him whatever power he chooses.
As said before, there is a great many situations between the level-headed guy making a ruling on an unclear situation and letting you reverse an action since it was based on that ruling (or making it near the end of the session where the difference is trivial), and the other guy making up houserules on the spot and refusing to compromise at all because he doesn't know the actual rules of the game, and has the "right" to make them up as he sees fit.
And thus, I am arguing against the blanket statement that it makes a bad player to not always accept everything coming from a GM's mouth as gospel.
As far as 'blanket statements' go, you've now mischaracterized and misquoted mine.
I said that there is a time when you need to stop arguing with the GM and accept the ruling. You are welcome to look at any of my previous posts within which that very thing was stated, multiple times.
If you are referring to someone else's blanket statement, make that clear, since my name is the only one that has come up thus far with the terms "blanket statement" or "all in his head" applied.
