I know you're not supposed to say what your initiative number is, or how much damage you'll be doing exactly, or the name of the card. Can you say, "I'm going to stun this guy," or "I'm going to Muddle these two guys"?

That seems fine to me. "I'm stunning these guys" is very pertinent information for other players' turns, and provides about the same amount of detail on which card you're playing as "I'm looting" or "I'm healing you".

Totally allowed. And as you may have noticed, as a party plays more and more, they will learn more and more about each others cards (excluding the case where someone like memorizes them ahead of time). In that case, you may get so in sync that simply saying "i'm going to muddle them" is almost akin to letting them know exactly the card you're using and if they can remember all the details, they can plan their turn better.

Honestly this is really thematic to me. In scenario one,everyone trying to guess initiatives or are missing opportunities to utilize elements or pull off cool combos. Then a half dozen scenario later they're calling their shots. It's like a Hollywood movie where at the beginning they're screwing stuff up for each other and constantly arguing, then by the end of the movie they doing gymnastics off each other.
