Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds since AD&D 1e up through D&D 4e, with side-quests into even older editions. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment What does “Strength modifier damage” mean?
@mxyzplk It's not a duplicate. It's not misunderstanding what a strength mod is, it's not understanding what the non-existent "str mod damage" is, because they're misreading the words and it's a non-existent game object. (See my answer.)

revised Are cantrips spells?
"ibid." is always sentence case with a period, and italic for Latin in English: makes it more recognisable

comment How can I recognise when a Scene should be skipped?
NB the name of this technique you're looking to develop skill with is "aggressive scene framing." General information on "scene framing" is also helpful to read about.

Does it have to look like an accident to everyone, or is it OK if the other PCs learn what is going on?
