  • The best gaming advice: Talk to each other like reasonable adults.
  • Dice fudging is bullshit.
  • Ignoring rules is a sign that you're playing the wrong game.
  • Rather than hack on the rules of a game, stop to consider that a different game might better do what you want.
  • Rule Zero is bullshit.
  • System matters.

Brevity is characteristic of okeefe's answers. … It's a complete solution to the problem, in a small package. —SevenSidedDie

"[E]ven though that clearly wasn't the intent of the system." I think it's pretty clearly an intent of the system, considering there are explicit rules about spending XP. One could argue about whether it's a good design decision, but why not assess that during play? It's the player's choice.
