I would like a little advice. How do you handle monsters that try to ambush the PC’s?
Let’s say there is a kind of choke point in a mega-dungeon, and the monsters have rigged up a big cargo net to drop on the characters at that spot. It is well-hidden.
Now, how do you work up to the point where the PCs are either caught by the net or not?
* How much do you look for signals that the PCs are actively searching for ambush? (i.e. someone scouting ahead, using Trap Expert, explicitly saying they are checking the ceilings, etc.)
* How much would you base on a 6 or less roll on a move? (i.e. unless someone misses, they’ll not get caught)
* How much do you telegraph the ambush to prompt the PCs to even roll a move? Just walking down a hall doesn’t trigger any moves, right?
* How much to you just treat this as a hard move?
Any thoughts are appreciated. I’m up to almost 30 sessions of GMing DW now, and feel confident in almost all areas, but traps/ambushes are still a soft spot for me.
