Inspired by a post by Jared Rascher, we take a look at rolling dice or just succeeding based on the actions of the player character in your rpg. In other words, if you narrate your situation well, should you just succeed?
Let’s talk about those “old” settings, adventures, and so on – the ones that are for the previous edition of your favorite game, but you want to use them with the newer version.
