Tabletop tomfoolery– wizardly wisecracks. We bring you tabletop gameplay and discussion with a panel of lighthearted players.

Last Stand Chat: Risk/Reward Mechanics

Posted by feats in Podchat, Last Stand

Medibot, Gnome, Ambisagrus, Ironicus, and Gharbad are joined by special guest PublicOpinion to discuss risk and reward design. These elements appear organically in all sorts of games, but are rarely designed as a core part of a roleplaying experience-- rather, these elements are much more common in directly competitive games. Our panel discusses this phenomenon in preparation for Last Stand, a Fortune engine game just dripping with risks and rewards.
