QuoteI disagree, mainly because I see both Author and Actor Stances as being highly nuanced as well, independently.

If the players can only effect the in-game agents (i.e. the characters) this is author stance if they can effect things other than the in-game agents it is director stance.You seem to be stuck on the PC thing I was earlier in this thread. According to Ron, who's character it is (PC, NPC, whatever) is irrelavant when we look at stances. IIUC
