They told me I should write something here, so this is what I had to say.

"Truly! Twas Gimoneus the wise, grand sorcerer of Elantorfan, keeper of the ancient rune of Turgochit, came nearest to slaying the mighty dragon of Ralmorgantorg; for he was old and sinewy, and the wretched beast near choked to death on his femur."

comment What happens if I concede a fight to someone who only wants me dead?
In this particular case, it's not a villain - it's a marginally sentient creature with an order to murder. In this case, the villain is otherwise occupied. Generally speaking, though, this is good advice.

@Wesley I don't hold it against this GM, as it's really their first game running anything Fatelike, but in essence, yes.

Right, you offer your concession, and that concession in some way needs to resolve the current scene at consequence to the character. It really isn't about what the GM wants, though - it's about finding a resolution in the scene that the opposing party wants. The GM can't resolve a scene by introducing themselves as the other person - this has to be the characters opposed.

I hate to disagree this strongly, but conflicts are not about GM vs. Players - it really isn't what the GM wants, it's what the opposing party in the conflict wants. If attacking someone, and you concede, the GM can't say "as a consequence your house is on fire" to help the plot - it's what the other person in the scene wans, for instance, "They take your sword, gold, and clothes and leave."

Is there anything good or enjoyable about games with this GM? If not, with all due respect, why are you still playing?

Thanks for the pointers, @Seven! I've edited. In retrospect, I did sort of gloss over how game history affects dropouts.

Kudos for improving your question as much as you did. Most don't do that, and it's a wonderful sight to see.

comment I want to run an RPG inspired by Monáe's 'Metropolis' concept series
Through my experience playing Microscope, I've come to the conclusion that playing with an already-decided-upon setting is not a good idea. It practically says so in the rulebook, too, with that players shouldn't share ideas.

comment How to create a Number Puzzle?
@Brian Interpolation like that typically only works if the contents are sequenced in a predictable way, for instance, in a telephone book. But as Hobbs points out, comments aren't the place to discuss such theory.
