Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Techniques for fast paced storytelling
The budget analogy is very good indeed! I would add that the GM can let the player describe his encounter during $fluff. The GM is then free to use whatever the player made up as part of his world thus making the world richer. Good players might surprise you and come up with really interesting content.

comment Increase power of or control over accidentally discovered abilities?
Some of your factors could be collapsed together, or maybe I need a little more information to differentiate between them. For example, accuracy, finesse, and manipulation all sound synonymous to me.

comment Increase power of or control over accidentally discovered abilities?
I would think of control akin to an inverse variance (small variance is lots of control) in a normal distribution. The power, I view as an amplitude. Hum, this kinda works in my own head but seems unclear....

comment How to make a dense, immersive horror atmosphere?
@RobertF: If could be but in most cases it is not. Players generally trust each other by default and thus the inflected PC has all the advantages. It can work well but in most cases, the rest of the players will feel cheated.

comment How to GM a zombie-apocalypse game?
I suggest you checked about the question Atmosphere of alienation and horror — halloween game which offers some insight to what I wanted to do in the same situation. Of course my own answer to Preventing saturation in a horror campaign might well be helpful.

Yes, it is. It makes a good alternative to slaughtering the opposition.
