Episode 285 – obfuscating a 1
by Dan Repperger
* (0:28) Announcing our pick for the Postcards from the Dungeon contest! You’ll be able to see the postcard we picked when the poll goes live later this week.
* (2:32) The existence or absence of critical miss rules in various systems, and whether they’re needed to add parity to critical hits.
* (20:18) Why GMs should not make obfuscation and frustration their go-to method of building a plot. Times we’ve encountered this in the past. Whether improv GMs are more prone to this particular mistake and some suggestions on a better way to structure even a “single-objective” plot.
* (45:39) Apparently game companies think Christmas is in March this year. You can find Karla’s wish list site here.
