Good referee advice from 140 years ago

 So while reading while reading Jon Peterson's latest, the Elusive Shift he makes an interesting reference to something Charles Totten said in Strategos on page 105.

I think that a pretty good summary of how a good referee acts. 

You can read it for yourself using this link.

Outstanding. I agree. This is excellent advice. I do this intuitively now just because I have been DMing for so long. I've learned the hard way not to be too hasty in my adjudications. I ask the player what they intend to do, make sure we both have a common point of view about what the situation is and then decide.

It's hard to imagine that people used to talk that way.
