A game designer & illustrator tries to return his sense of wonder to its original packaging.
You, sir, win the internets today.
I love this. I am working on game player type theories too, and I will absolutely reference this.I can see myself as different ones of these depending on the game and setting. Six out of the eight, in fact. (I guess I am a D-Gamer when I am playing competitive poker, the few times I do that.)
Many thanks, guys. I'm usually a "reasonable actor" when I'm playing. I've got a DM alignment chart on the way.
Great chart. Looking forward to the GM version. I wonder where I'll end up. :)
This chart should make distinctions between multiplayer and campaign modes. It's a fair assumption for online multiplayer combat games, like Halo and COD, but not for single player adventure games like Skyrim and Dragon Age.
I only had traditional pen-and-paper-and dice RPGs in mind, like Dungeons & Dragons, Hackmaster, and Swords & Hordes.
Well done! Thanks for sharing!
