I’m GMing a pandemic RPG over Discord. It’s for a bunch of friends.
Due to some bad rolling, the PCs are about to fight a boss they were never meant to fight. I gave them the ‘It’s just a game’ speech and 10xp.
It’s Gurps. 10xp is two and a half sessions.
I may boatkill the group next week.
Edit: Imagine the player group is walking a bridge over a shark pit, and they roll to stay balanced.
Roll to fight sharks.
Like, is it the shark’s fault when snacks fall into their living room?
