So, Im new to the community. New to DW. Just ran my first session. It turned out great.
I did have one ‘catch’ though during the game. I was having trouble with the 7-9 roll only with ‘Defy Danger’. It came up three distinct times (that I can remember) during the game.
The first is probably the hardest. -The Ranger, Halek, wanted to push large pieces of detritus in front of an old wooden door, to keep Draugr from the room. Rolled a 7. I referenced my sheet. Worse Outcome, I decided that the detritus collapsed pinning the ranger’s leg, but he was able to partially cover the door, in turn slowing the Draugr entry.
The second is probably the best I did. -The Wizard, Halwyr, had to leap over a great chasm and land on a landing on the opposite site. Rolled an 8. I referenced my sheet. Hard Choice. I told him he made it across fine, but he had to choose whether he landed wrong and took damage or whether he landed wrong, crushing the antitoxin in his bag. He chose the toxin.
The third I have mixed feelings about. -The Fighter, Hawke, ran from a guardian stone at the climax of the session, jewels in his hands. The ceiling had just fallen in on the group, and there was plenty of large ruble to wade through. He rolled an 8. I referenced my sheet. ‘Trip up’ it says, so I told Hawke he literally tripped and have him a choice. Either, take so much time holding on the jewels that the guardian stone pulls you back into the room, or scramble to your feet evading the guardian but loose the jewels down in the rubble. He chose to lose the jewel.
I just feel like Im missing something here. Am I?
What advice do you have?
