So I just have a quick question for the game as a whole, because I'm curious where everyone stands on this and see if maybe my beliefs are shared.
I get that we're a roleplay game, but sometimes when people come back to the game after long periods of not playing... They are typically not the same person. Their mannerisms are different, their goals are different, their drives and ambitions are different, and they may even play different aspects of the game from their previous time.
So my question is this: Should a player still be held accountable for what they may or may not have done in the past, especially if coming back from an extended break? And if so, why??
