I’ve ran a few adventures of my own with DW but I’m still fairly new to this system. I mainly have a question about fronts and how I am to use them. For example; I am looking at using John Aegard’s The Indigo Galleon (Introductory adventure). He has four different fronts listed. Under the location of HMS Relentless the last line says, “Recovering the whole treasure will take much of the day and will check off a number of Grim Portents.” My question is how do I manage the fronts and the grim portents?
I’m assuming it’s based on time and actions?
Like for example the party spends most of their time with the galleon I check off the grim portents of what’s going on there AND what’s going on in the other locations? For example the sacrifice process escalates since the party is spending time concerning themselves with the galleon and treasure, right? And then if the party never even tries to stop the sacrifice then all the grim portents would be checked off and thus triggering the ‘Doom?’
