  • 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

There isn't a way to fail a check, as far as I can tell. Having the target roll to determine the check is just as fair/arbitrary as any other way, except that it fits within the scope of the rules. I wouldn't want it to be automatic, for example.

comment What defines the CR of a creature
It's neither quick nor easy, but the Bestiary has rules for creature creation. Have you looked at it or its SRD?

comment Is it reasonable to create Dungeon World characters, fronts, etc. in Hero Lab?
In my experience, a flat text file is sufficient Dungeon World.

comment How can I simplify Duel of Wits to make it more like Bloody Versus?
Actually scripting might be faster since there's fewer options. You could hack in Not A Big Deal, but with a lucky roll and some Fate you could potentially one-shot an argument.

comment Players who want to duel each other
I didn't say it was a good idea. Presumably the players will figure this out right quick.
