At this point, we should agree to disagree - as we're going in circles.

I gather that you don't think being a monster basher qualifies as a role, and I think it does. I can't prove it to you - nor would I want to.

I also can't make you see that a "role" has absolutely no complexity/depth requirements in terms of the logical/semantic definition. At least, I dare you find a reputable source that clarifies how and why.

I linked the definition of a role earlier - and I haven't got a single shred of doubt that being a monster basher can easily qualify as a role - without any extra depth or background. I consider part of the fun to invent my own background and motivation for bashing monsters - and I don't need the game to provide me with much of that. All I know is that when I'm playing a game like Grimrock - I'm pretending to be the people I'm playing. That's quite enough for me.

I wish you good luck with your definition, but I'm pretty sure it's going to be a very personal one
