    Pay What You Want (But Please Pay Something!)

    Evil Hat have quite a wide range of PWYW titles. I was also really surprised to see that they in the $000s of dollars. That is the power of brand recognition in action.

    Sharing Information

    I have had this happen once and the characters being completely stymied in which way to go resorted to employing outside spell casters to try and learn something about how to progress. I then used that to get hints and suggestions to the party.

    General No Fixed Location -- dynamically rearranging items, monsters, and other game elements in the interests of storytelling

    I will happily do this. I have even written things that were fuzzy in their locations even in the planning. Things like "In the first room the characters may be able to find x", "In the second room they search they may be able to find y" and so on. Where the searching happens is secondary. If...

    5E Would you play D&D if you knew there would be no combat?

    Totally agree, there are systems that are set up for non-combat as a central theme. Rules-wise, there is an argument that we only need the rules for things that we cannot role play. I cannot cast a fireball so I need rules to describe that. I cannot physically attack the monsters so I need...

    5E Would you play D&D if you knew there would be no combat?

    There is a joke along the lines of RPGs are where a 3 hour journey takes 30 seconds to play but a 30 second fight takes 3hrs to play. I find that no or little combat games fill the void left by the missing combat with far more interesting challenges for the characters. They give a chance to...
