Show Notes:

“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.

Grant from Saving the Game Podcast asks us about ways to come up with plots for convention games (He’s going to Fear the Con 6).

Finally, we get a gaming nightmare from Keenan the Conqueror.
