I’m a thirtysomething dad and IT professional living in the Austin, TX area. I started gaming way back in the day, 1982, with the TSR space opera game Star Frontiers. Since then I've been an avid roleplayer. I went to 5 Gen Cons, was a regional Triad for the RPGA's Living Greyhawk campaign, helped start a gaming club (the FORGE) in Memphis, TN, et cetera.

I GM and play a variety of RPGs; currently Pathfinder is in heavy rotation as well as various non-D&D-based games.

comment How to avoid arguments with a player about what “should” happen?
Don't bury the lead - this isn't a general D&D type problem, in Lady Blackbird this is quite different. I'd move all that to the top as it's the real answer to this problem, the rest should be an appendix at best.

Answerers: Lady Blackbird is very different from D&D and other trad games. Answers based on that mindset are probably quite unhelpful and inappropriate.

There's always an "if" - but if the kid was Doogie Howser I assume that would have been mentioned (or if the 9 year old was developmentally disabled, or if they all didn't speak the same native language, or...).

comment What does “Strength modifier damage” mean?
I think you are seeing nuance that does not exist here at this way more basic level of confusion.

comment What does “Strength modifier damage” mean?
This is a duplicate because it's not misunderstanding [w] or how to add it to the str mod, it just doesn't understand what a strength mod is, and that is covered by the linked question.

Is this intended to be a general game for other people with a 4.5 and 9 year old also participating, or is this just a game "for the kids"?
