Hi there,

What you are calling "railroading," I am calling Scene Framing and GM input.

It ain't railroading. I see what you guys are saying, and the "it" is correct. But the "it" only consists of the GM being able to say that anything happens at all, and that the "camera" has moved in space and time. I've held forth at great length in the past that such assertions are to be approved by the group (ie the GM makes them provisionally).

Railroading carries such strong content, so highly associated with GM intrusion into the sphere of player decision-makiing, that I strongly resist any use of that term in reference to properly-negotiated Bangs.
