@Halfjack Vincent's series on "dice and clouds" is a pretty clear demonstration of the theoretical origins of "fiction first", which is a purely mechanical distinction elevated to the status of a buzzword. Pay close attention to what's happening in rule #3 (and the more complicated #5)


Basically, it's "fiction first" if the rules are mediated through the cloud first, before hitting the dice.
