Lakeside Games’ Narrative Toolbox
“When to Roll.” We discuss when the GM should require skill and attribute rolls from the players. We detail several games guidelines about when rolls should happen and shouldn’t happen. Eric asks us about point levels and combat balance in a GURPS Superhero (Dead Presidents) game.
Len in Miami enjoys our Actual Play Legend of the Five Rings game. Nibbl3 talks about character death off-screen and makes a good case for when it might be appropriate. Moose give us some tips about how to give NPCs distinctive voices without needing to do accents.
Finally, we get a gaming nightmare from Keenan the Conqueror.
