Wil Wheaton's GM Advice

Postby Pikabuki » Mon Jun 22, 2015 10:47 pm

Have you used these techniques in your games?

I halfway used the first tip to great effect in my first Exalted campaign. My sister made an amazing investigation roll in an orphanage. I hadn't planned for anything significant to be there (it was simply there to illustrate something about the town), so I made up a pitiful, supernaturally brittle little boy. This snowballed into an arc that lasted months!

Often times I try to come up with things when players roll great search or lore checks on the spot. I think that letting players come up with their own contributions to the world makes a lot of sense, though. It would totally get me invested as a player if I had that opportunity and would probably feel a lot more rewarding than a new weapon or sword.

This is one of the reasons why I love games where you build the world as a group.
