    How do you avoid powergaming in roleplay?: I avoid powergaming through a few methods, depending on the situation. On the larger scale, a lot of it is common sense of knowing what your character is capable of and working within those limits, and if you want to go beyond those limits you need to find good and valid reasoning that often involve longer term actions that build up to a point. For example a smaller more frail character isn't realistically going to defeat a larger opponent, so it's important considering these situations as realistically as possible. In scenarios of combat, or similar ideas, it's helpful to use dice rolls to provide a sense of fairness for all involved sides.
    Besides that, there's also the important bit of understanding you are in control of *your* character and not others. It's important to perform roleplay with offers of action from the other party rather than force it on them.
    How does metagaming disrupt fair roleplay?: Simply put, it ruins the fun. Roleplaying is essentially writing a story with other people, by metagaming you ruin the suspense and flow of the story. Allowing your character access to information they otherwise wouldn't know both makes it awkward to deal with and ruins what other characters have going on. It also can cause powergaming in its own sense through an obscene amount of knowledge.
    Status: Accepted

Vendi is 6'6", has wavy pink-blonde hair that is often in a bun with green eyes and light skin. She weighs approximately 192 pounds. She has a handful of fitting elf costumes she took from home but most of her modern outfits are loose fitting shirts and overalls. Her posture is slightly leaned forward, bringing her down approximately an inch. 
------------

You’ve just arrived in a swampy, dim town. As you look around, your gaze is met with shacks and cabins. It smells of rotted wood and wet moss. You duck and step into a tattered tent, illuminated by a series of candles suspended in the air. At the back of the tent, an old hag raises her head, “What brings you to this dingy town? she begins, then pauses to study your face—”Ah, it’s you. I’ve been expecting you. Sit,” she gestures at a cushion, “Tell me your story.”

((How do you respond?))


Example: (delete this) 

 "Well...hello to you too." Vendi says with a slight eyeroll as she sits herself on the cushion. She remains physically on guard, but her eyes seem relaxed as she looks at the older woman. "I suppose if you're that interested in me, no harm in telling you." She takes a deep breath as begins sharing her story. "I suppose for starters, I never really knew my mom. No one ever told me what happened to her, just vague memories from when I was six or so." As the young woman begins to rattle off her tale, her physical posture begins relaxing, leaning back and keeping herself propped up with her arms. "It was just me and my dad for the longest time and we didn't entirely get along. He was really big on the whole..." She makes a very vague hand motion. "Racial purity nonsense. He was already getting onto me about keeping blood pure and all of that by the time I was 15. We got in a really big argument about 4 years later and I just kind of...left."  She lets out a large, exasperated sigh. "Soon after that I tried dyeing my hair...it's less 'high elf' you know? Less questions and all." The young elf runs her hand through her hair as she says this. "I've been drifting around since then and trying to earn my own keep. I've been learning about all kinds of magical engineering since then and I think it's starting to pay off." The girl sits back up, crossing her legs. "Now I'm here. Just planning on doing a job and move on." With that, Vendi stands up and smiles at the old woman. "Thanks for listening, actually felt kinda nice getting that all off my chest."
