  • 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

@DuckTapeal Anywhere the characters go is part of the adventure. Going the wrong place first sounds like a fun and memorable adventure!

I'm not sure if "go read it" is suitable to post as an an answer. You can always come back if you have questions after reading.

@SevenSidedDie Perhaps. Given the systems he's listed, I recommend going straight to Fate Core and back off to Fate Accelerated only if he wants a lighter, quicker read.

Have you read it? Fate Core is freely available.

@SevenSidedDie If you want to argue that rule zero exists as part of the social contract, fine, but it's not a game rule unless the game itself introduces it.

@SevenSidedDie No. Some games explicitly include such a rule, and some even call it rule zero. Burning Wheel does not.

Burning Wheel does not have a rule zero.

This sounds like a great character for a system other than D&D.
