how do you role-play "intelligence"?
Finally got to play an RPG after many years (sadly, not Runequest)....in any case noticing that the characters intelligence doesn't come into play much.
For example, if you have a character of average intelligence do you behave any different than if you're character had high (or low) intelligence? There are things you know as a player and get translated to your character, but do you "dumb down" or "smarten up" that transfer based on the actual characteristic?
In other words, I feel we just "role play ourselves" for the most part - and that's probably to be expected. But just curious how you others role-play this?
