  • 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

comment How can I effectively advance Perception, Faith, or Resources?
@AlexP I really have no idea what the question is at this point that doesn't degenerate to “play the game”. Want to advance P/R/F? Artha. Need artha? Beliefs and instincts to get yourself into P/R/F situations. Consequences? The grist of the game!

@SevenSidedDie Mechanically, the reason seems to be “they're tested all the time and would otherwise advance too quickly”. If the question is truly “How quick is advancement”, then that should really be a separate question.

@AlexP The answer to the freshly edited question is now “Step 0: Rack up artha” which, of course, involves writing relevant beliefs and instincts. Do you really want that as an answer?

Rerolling failed dice is huge, especially after you've spent the persona for the dice and need a success to earn the test.
