Episode 285 – obfuscating a 1

Fear the Boot, RPG Podcast show

Summary: * (0:28) Announcing our pick for the Postcards from the Dungeon contest (http://www.feartheboot.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=16701)!  You'll be able to see the postcard we picked when the poll goes live later this week. * (2:32) The existence or absence of critical miss rules in various systems, and whether they're needed to add parity to critical hits. * (20:18) Why GMs should not make obfuscation and frustration their go-to method of building a plot.  Times we've encountered this in the past.  Whether improv GMs are more prone to this particular mistake and some suggestions on a better way to structure even a "single-objective" plot. * (45:39) Apparently game companies think Christmas is in March this year.  You can find Karla's wish list site here (http://www.nouglysweaters.net).
