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.

Also please don't add an answer that just duplicates another answer - vote up the existing answer instead. I'm going to protect this question because I don't see what the bottom ~5 answers say that isn't said in the top ~5.

Please don't answer in comments - there's plenty of answers pointing out that they seem to be expecting some unusual 'easy mode' below.

No - simple interaction with it yourself is not enough, hence how it says you get a save for that. You might believe it, that's part of the magic. Someone else waving their hand through the bucket, that's proof.

comment What Role-Playing Game System Works Best for a DM who Hates Reading?
Whatever, there's still a zillion and I'm not sure how to tell which fit your criteria more than others. There are Microlite single-pagers, and CRAM, and and... imgur.com/a/xRdx5 What can we help you with that is more nuanced than googling "one page rpgs"?

I tend to disagree, as the only part of an answer it's lazy and if you click through you realize it's not actually a magic remove-all-group-conflict tool. But it's helpful in moderation.
