@2097 is 100% right about real-world RPG culture: I simply have no expectations of fairness or clarity of expectations whatsoever when I play with a GM I don't already know, because even asking about how the rules of a game actually work is usually considered a serious social faux pas.Is this a regional thing? Because when GMing I've often been asked at conventions how the rules of a game work and I always consider it a good question. In fact, teaching how the rules of a game work is something I obsessively do in convention play and it is not considered offputting or odd. And as a player, I always ask how the rules work and I always get a decent answer (at least, when the answer has been deficient it hasn't been for social reasons, it's been because the GM/group leader didn't quite understand the rules themselves.)
