So: Grim Portents. Can they trigger offscreen, without the PCs knowing they triggered? I’ve always assumed that if they PCs aren’t present to observe a Portent, it can happen without them and they might find evidence of it and/or face the repercussions of it later. Or never find out it happened at all.
This has played out as me making a GM move by ticking a box on a list and not telling the players what just happened, and/or saying something like, “The wheels turn,” to let them know that their slowness or bad luck has allowed something bad to happen, but not telling them what.
Do Grim Portents always need to be on a scale where they are overtly announced, or can they tick off in the background?
