Question: How would you people handle being on fire in DW? My wife threw a lantern in the face of a rather dry zombie yesterday, and I regrettably didn’t actually handle it very well, meaning that I only let her deal class damage to it, because I didn’t think straight. I told her so afterwards.
My problem was how to handle the fictional time, because the zombie would eventually burn to a crisp, but it might take a couple of seconds to do so. As everyone knows, a lot can happen in a couple of seconds, and I thus made the terrible decision of not letting it have anything bu a colorful effect. I should have rewarded the initiative.
How would you roll with it?
