Title: [TSoY] S.C.A.N.
Post by: dindenver on November 12, 2008, 01:00:00 PM
All,
  I have trouble remembering what each letter of IIEE means and what steps are involved. So, I came up with my own acronym:
S - Set Stakes. This includes Setting player intentions, declaring character actions and selecting skills and consequences (of success and failure)
C - Cast the die - This is rolling the dice (including bonus/penalty dice)
A - Add it up - This includes more bonus/penalty dice as well as taking into account for "weapons" and "armor"
N - Narrate - The SG, with help from the group and the Ability check results, narrates what happens
  First of all, is this correct for the system as written, second is there a conceptual flaw in this rendering (I can re-do it, but don't want to if it is right)?

Seems to me like that's pretty much how it goes.

Eero,
  You know, you really are special.
  If there is anything I can ever do to repay your help and diligence, let me know, ok?
