Where is the answer?
What's the difference between looking on your character sheet for an answer or seeking an answer from within the player?

Is this one of those "Would characters know a werewolf's weakness if they'd never encountered one even though the player knows" questions? Because I say yes, the character would know. Even if it had a 2 intelligence.

RPGs are for players, not PCs. PCs are tools used by players and character stats provide bonuses and/or penalties to those tools and limit what type of tool a player can have. Said INT 2 means the tool cannot be a magic-user, not that the player has to behave like a complete moron.

So what's the difference? One is playing an RPG and the other is playing an RPG incorrectly. Or as the kids would say, "RPGs: You're doing it wrong."

Or that's what I imagine the kids would say. Kids still exist, right?
