B/X Known World
Jim Butcher explicitly writes with the scene and sequel structure. He’s written blog posts about it and talks up how once he started using it his career as a writer took off. It’s a fairly straightforward structure and a common action-adventure framework. So your pacing will more closely match that style of story. Importantly, novels don’t run on resource management mechanics, so something like the rest as reward above might work. Maybe one short rest every sequel or one long rest every sequence or act.Emulating novels was a big part of my reason as well. I'm a big fan of The Dresden Files and similar. Everything is going along just fine and then the feces hits the fan for a few days.
