comment Why is the GM usually the driving force in RPG?
When you are playing your character "as if they are really there" the game is an experience not a story. Like hiking Yosemite park is an experience. The story is about the experience. Sometime the experience makes for an interesting story and sometimes it doesn't. What makes for an interesting experience doesn't always make for an interesting story. Because this the setup for one approach doesn't automatically work for the other approach. As for the question the referees in the original tabletop RPGs were managing an experience not managing a collaborative story.

comment Virtual online tabletop with premade adventure?
How you setup a VTT to run your campaign is a common question I get from friends. The technology is relatively new so many don't know where even to begin. Plus it is a growing aspect of tabletop roleplaying so it will come up more and more. So I don't consider to be overly broad at all.
