comment How can I cut short a doomed fight?
That's how Ericson tells his stories: each chapter is several stories, told at the same time. This solution is GREAT for the group, as they get to think and discuss their next move, while the spotlight is off.

comment Why is the GM usually the driving force in RPG?
"But let's not forget that RPGs were invented to mix the experience of war games with the emotional appeal of written fiction." This alone would have been enough. Nice to have you aboard this site!

comment Why is the GM usually the driving force in RPG?
"but the GM decides (or at least knows) how everyone and everything else reacts." but why. Couldn't the knight in the group need, for narrativistic reasons, need to kill a dragon, so the player proclaims that a dragon is menacing the city that the group is about to visit? Apparently this is possible, but why is it not common?

comment How to handle wealthy player characters as a GM?
As always, 7-sided to the rescue. I always imagine epic-fantasy characters (e.g. D&D above 5th level) as traveling medieval knights with superpowers. The other solution is to run modest campaign: an ordinary man can be a hero without being able to fly and shoot lightning. Sacrifice, courage, winning over one's own daemons don't need a handsome millionaire that can lift a truck to manifest.

I am thinking actually even more extremely - the players create the NPC that they need to talk to, they create the quest hook, that they need.
