"Theater of the Mind" Doesn't Mean "Just Fake It"

I always play D&D or OSR RPGs using the "theater of the mind", I've never been a minis+battlemat guy.

But I've noticed that some people just throw all kinds of context out of the window when they claim to be using that method, making a surreal and non-emulative type of combat. So in my latest video I wanted to share some advice on how to handle Theater of the Mind combat, and to make sure it isn't just an excuse to go all loosey-goosey on the rules.
