Yeah, I was just wondering about what could be the lives of our fellow dinkers.
And yes, you stand correct. Straight, it seems like making a dmod story that most probably the author only will completely understand.

The point I was trying to make was not so much whether or not it would be "understood", it was whether or not it would be fun to play.

But I still believe that there are geniuses capable of effectively connecting us into their deepest and most expressive self by uttering, (in the form of DinkC and dmod programming), their philosophies in experiences in life. Geniuses who are of free will, mind and soul in creating their masterpieces which touch our very hearts in fire.

Hmmm. I'm not sure about what you are wishing for here. Nothing has stopped any dmod author from creating "(in the form of DinkC and dmod programming), their philosophies in experiences in life.". In fact, many dmod authors have told us something about themselves and their values when they tell us stories. All good stories are (at least in part) about the human condition. We want to be told something about our fellow humans. So, pieces of interests, jokes, and other quality story elements (liberally mixed with fun and adventure!) do this already in some of the best dmods. I hope to do it (at least a bit) in all of the dmods I create.

Would I like to see more of this type of good story telling mixed with fun adventure too? Certainly! Personally, I think we all would like that.

Damn straight, some dmod stories are filled with someone's jokes which sometimes make me think "why do they have these mindsets?", and the answer must be given when they open up with their life story.

I still think that the idea of embedding an ordinary life story in a dmod would be dull. Shakespeare wrote plays that were stories of humor and wit and very astute observations of the human condition, plus a wide assortment of characters we can not help but care about, due to his story telling skills. But IMHO, Shakespeare would be unknown if he only wrote plays about his domestic life and his attempts to make a living as a playwright.
