Not a criticism by any means.
It seems like players here are deeply int the role play, which I LOVE (I hate the nit-picky number crunchers) but they get so caught up into thinking about ther characters, that they forget to think about their world, and they forget to ASK QUESTIONS.
'In my day' (I know I'm old, but boy does that hurt to say) when a party walked into an empty room, the fighter guarded the entrance, the thief searched for traps and secret doors, the cleric checked for evil, and the magic user scanned for anything unnatural.
Today it seems the paladin comments on how his armour catches the light. The rogue describes the flourish of their cloak. The druid says something pithy, that the wizard matches with wit.
Surely there is enough time and room for both?
