Default Is This Normal????

I have a friend that starts narorating whats going on in the battle and making up a story of how the battle is going for each unit. Is this normal?

Post what your friend or anybody else you have played with(including you self if you wish) does during the battle (THAT ISNT NORMAL) in addition to ansering the question.

How old is he? how pissed was he? how bored was he? to what extent does he think his models are alive?

- ask yourself this, and im sure you`ll find an answer. ( and if hes fairly young then replace the booze with a sugar overdose)

he is enjoying his game how he wants to, making it interesting and narrative, like a movie in his head, so yes its normal, if you think playing 40k for fun is normal.

This sounds awesome, i'd come and watch him narrate games. Please tell me he does voices.

I had a friend who did this once with a game I and another friend played. It is rather normal for some people. The fact that he gradually became more and more of a jerk kinda ruin the example.

I think its funny, lame and awesome all at the same time... well, depending on whether it is tongue in cheek or done in all seriousness.

I've never witnessed such a person to do that yet, but I'm sure it would be rather interesting. What ever makes the event more enjoyable is great. I wouldn't say it's any less normal than someone who just 'out of the blue' makes noises and voices. I'm sure he just loves a good story.

Tremble mortals and despair, doom has come to this world.

I think it can make the game more interesting or at least more entertaining depending on how well he can narrate. Me and one of my friends who pretty much have a love hate relationship duue to me playing SM and him playing orks do it just to get under each others skin.
