Changes of thread happen at my direction. Likewise scene changes, especially entering/exiting the guild and undercity occur at my description. Entering or mpving through areas containing NPC's happens when I describe them.

When attempting an action, two factors are required; a post describing how your sttempted act would be percieved, and a die roll, which might be secret or open for your attempt. The results of the doe roll are to be included ooc with the post, privately as needed, or even in a pm to me. As the majority of actions in GURPS can be resisted/defended against, you can only describe the attempt and mot the result.
Nothing will occur if youbpm "when I get a chance, I am going to do the thing" unless it is accompanied by both a descriptor and a die roll. This especially applies to things attempted stealthily-at least the pm needs the description and the roll.

In reply to Narrator (msg # 1):

If presenting a character for approval, GCA and GCS format is not desired, partly because it breaks down templates and scatters the parts, skewing several components, including disadvantage count.
