    [–] [OC] Roll for mind control. Sleverette 1 points ago in DnD

    I think describing my own actions is the most fun part of being a player!

    It’s a dangerous game we play!

    It takes real charisma to smooth talk a blacksmith into giving away free weapons!

    It’s about getting in on the ground floor and making smart decisions for the future!

    Pbta is great. It has a lot of really unique mechanics that I borrow for dnd.

    A lot of new players go in expecting situations like this. I think it’s fun to play into it until they learn more about the game.

    It’s about sending a message!

    I do have a bearded female dwarf character. She one of my favorite npcs I’ve ran!

    I think the difference is between the player describing their action and getting the appropriate roll vs just asking for the specific roll. I see the value in allowing them to ask and saving table time. I honestly do a mix of both.

    Rolling behind the screen has such a cool old school vibe! I don’t use a screen but if I was going for scary or cryptic I would totally use one.

    Good show! I’ve watched it so many times it’s becoming part of my subconscious.

    This is a good idea to follow. The players should have some control!

    Some people forget that we’re all here just to have fun!

    Why make war when you can make love? Lots of love!

    I’m sure someone’s already working on a bard only ttrpg.

    I do prefer when the player makes their appeal in character but I also understand that a player might not have the charisma their character has. I try to talk to players the way they talk to me.

    I do think knowledge checks work well when the player is looking for something. You could ask them to describe how they “look” but that can get repetitive quickly.

    Rolling to buy time is smart! I’m gonna use this!

    I wouldn’t require them to necessarily make a convincing argument word for word but I would ask them to give me the premise of what they want. It wouldn’t want to assume they’re offering more than they intended.

    I think this is a cool way of incorporating “yes and” as well as “no but.”

    It generates more chaotic and crazy results but I think there’s a real benefit to the narrative with your method. I know a lot of podcasts take this approach, TAZ being one of the big ones!
