  • 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

I've seen it for one-shot starters. I swear I saw a John Harper scenario where you all start as slaves in a mine, but I can't find it at the moment.

Luke Crane's games rarely tells you why a rule is the way it is. Consider exploring why through play.

comment How can I effectively advance Perception, Faith, or Resources?
Resources is not just riches. It includes favors and estate management. It can absolutely depend on who and why. Perception seems fair for Slowest and Loudest. Faith is a lot more subjective. If there's a belief involved, I'd probably ask that player to be the primary on the roll.

The Slowest and Loudest rule might negate your first point, but otherwise this is great advice.
