Re: Roleplaying Rules
I disagree with the OP. As a DM, I allow the players in my games to have a wide latitude when building the background and personality of their characters. Fluff is just that, something easily swept away. As long as the mechanics support their concept, then by all means, color it how ever you choose.
As to the barbarian and walls example, that's completely in the purview of the player and the concept. I would no sooner enforce that than I would that druids don't eat meat, all rogues steal, or all wizards are weak nerdy types.
Honestly it sounds all arbitrary and smacks of stereotyping and there's enough of that in the real world.
