I really love the fact that I can seriously abuse characters in DW, without really worrying about whether or not I’m going too far.
Last session, Misha Polonsky, who played Cadeus the Fighter, rolled 3 misses in a combat, and the third time I decided to up the ante a little; the elite soldier he was fighting might have hit only the armor protection Cadeus’ wrist, but the bone just below the wrist snapped.
We discussed what it meant; the bone wasn’t splintered, so he asked if he could still use the hand. I told him yes, but he’d have to defy danger by enduring (+CON) because of the pain.
Yet, it never became a problem, because his spear wasn’t two-handed. Really just added flavor and suspense 🙂
By the way, the fight with that soldier was epic, Misha Polonsky, despite all the trouble he brought you.
