Reflection on Session 2

  • Overall, this was a pretty fun session. There was a bit more danger and excitement.
  • I had such bad luck rolling dead ends. Luckily the system has a work around where you find more entrances. I realize now that technically, I could have explored the upstairs ‘dead end’ and hoped it was not what it seemed.
  • It was a mistake having both PCs carry their crossbows and stand together. In the future, I’ll have Carys lead with sword and shield and Bastian back a few yards with the crossbow.
  • Limb armor is the first thing on Carys’ shopping list.
  • There doesn’t seem to be any concrete system for failing an adventure. I guess I could simply leave and look for new leads, but it might be neat to have some consequences for failure like social disadvantages or enemies.
  • In the combat with the ghoul, who has reach C, and Carys who has reach 1 or 2, there was actually a bunch of stepping around which I left out. A clever enemy (not a ghoul) might have been able to corner Carys, but with Bastian there too it would be hard. I just ruled that they managed to have enough space to fight pretty freely and not worry about it.

Hopefully, you enjoyed session 2. Comments or questions are always welcome.

    1. Of course, I only had the idea because it looked like I was going to fail to find any way back in to the dungeon. Maybe some table like the What’s the Rush? table could be made to create consequences.


      1. Definitely – a table like that, rolled on when you first hear about the adventure, plus another table that you roll on at the end (“What are the Consequences of failure *really*?), just to add some uncertainty, and the possibility of a surprising turn in the story…
