Quote from: Rustin on February 04, 2008, 05:12:46 PMThanks for all the clarifications. I think I get it. I hope I don't sound too clueless, but if I could get some more hand holding that would be wonderful. "I swing my sword at his mid section" is a preferred player statement because it gives us a concrete, vivid action without necessarily including a consequence. "I cut him in half " is frowned upon because is includes a consequence that might not necessarily happen.
Quote"Mehka, Playing on her inflamed lust, seduces Tajie and brings her to bed with him" would appear to be in the frowned upon category of statements because we have a stated consequence.
QuoteBasically, it should be hard, if not impossible, to use reason to get a fool to do anything. . If someone wants to play a fool, then we shouldn't let some game mechanic mind control that character out of her nature.
