QuoteI think anyone who wants to get down to describing the nitty-gritty of every action as they're doing it, rather than after the fact based on the dice, as Altaem said, hasn't got the idea behind PIE.
QuoteThis whole interaction was played out by the GM (Altaem) for me, making rolls and recording the actions for me as I went.
Quoteit turns out it works best if you just agree on the general action, like "fight," then wait for the roll to decide your actions.
QuoteAltaem seems like a very dominant GM (in all the best senses of the word), and he seems to have the ability to make players agree with him
