VAX goes "It's not that, precisely"
These things aren't binary switches. If I find that my ownership of the character is more valuable to me than the coherency and meaning of the story, that doesn't mean that I don't value the story. Let me say it again... When you take away (or ask for) some of my control over my character, what am I getting in return? It's not a rhetorical question! I'm really asking... what do I get in return? Is it the same thing back, except degraded because it's coming from your character, which I value less than my own*? If so, it's going to be a hard sell. If I'm getting something else... tell me. If I value it more than what you're asking me to give up, I'll gladly give it up. The only difference between you and I, Vincent, is that we have different price lists.

VAX goes "Asterix"
* I value my character more than yours, because it's my character. The same thing goes for my car, my house, my kids. If I own it, then I care more what happens to it than things I don't own. I hope this isn't a difficult thing to grasp.

Difficult to grasp. I'm boggled.

We all share all the characters. I thought I showed that already.

But that aside, what you get in return is someone else's creative input, which is why you're roleplaying in the first place. You get a more full fulfillment of your creative agenda.
