comment Metagaming when there isn't actually anything there?
@InternetHobo I think that's addressed by both the link in the first sentence and the first bullet in the final section. Does that situation have fictional weight behind it? Clearly define the consequences for rolls, and look at the stakes more holistically than just an immediate go/no-go binary. Is it just a a bit of wheel-spinning? Don't waste their time just to manufacture uncertainty. Suspense is about more than that: it's created by our anticipation and the story's momentum.

comment What is “my guy syndrome” and how do I handle it?
@Sandwich Note what I said about "the difference between all building towards something together and one person having to expect extra effort just to block and twist what another player is doing" above. Also, your particular solution is ineffective because a Jedi knows that a roofer listens to his heart, not his wallet.
