Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Have been playing and GMing D&Ds from B/X to D&D 5e. Becoming a fan of indie games and the OSR in the mid 2000s expanded my horizons for both trad and indie games. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment How to challenge epic level characters?
I think this might be salvageable, but possibly only by taking a step up in scale to focus on the conceptual problem hinted at. Just an intuition at the moment though, I'll have to mull a bit before I can think of a specific fix or advice…

@GreenstoneWalker That's part of why there's a system mentioned in the question.

@Daniferrito If they're smart and covering their tracks, then they might be taking the game in an unanticipated direction, but really engaging with the world nicely. If they're doing that, then "playing that game" with them by having the world react appropriately to their actions will probably be appreciated.

@Daniferrito In civilisations without widespread communications, running far away is a good way to deal with that kind of notoriety. But yes, it won't help if one just keeps doing the same thing. :)
