When you GM, do you visualize the action as it happens? And if so, how important is that visualization to you?
For my part, I have an intensely visual imagination. I get mental images of what I’m describing, and of what my players describe, and they’re often very vivid. Years later, I can remember the mental images from some of my favorite games.
To a lesser extent, the same is true when I’m on the outside of the screen. Not being as actively involved in descriptions lowers the detail level of my mental visuals, but they’re often still pretty detailed.
