I decided to try out the Stakes rules for RPG's that were written by +Levi Kornelsen
. I have to admit, it did take some getting used to, thinking on my feet to figure out Dangers and Opportunities, but by the end of the session, it started to become second nature. I do believe I want to work this kind of thing into more games.
We decided to play in the world of Sgt. Frog, an anime. My one player, +Jude Dodd
, played an uplifted cat who had to rescue Keroro's Gundam model from the Pikoponian girl's bedroom. He challenged me, that's for sure.
The dice system I decided to use was from the Moonlight System I'm developing. Roll a d10 per dot (1 thru 5), try to get an even result, each one being a success, or a "hit." Rolling a 0 on the die is a "Full Moon" and counts as two hits.
The Stakes system seems to be great at helping someone learn to think on their feet better. It was doing that with me. Neat side effect. Thanks for the great rules, Levi.
