  1. On the pdf, 28 and 29 say "Make a roll" without saying what skill to check against. I am not sure what skills they are supposed to be.
  2. A lot of people criticize fudging and a lot of people criticize not fudging. To me, it depends on how you see your campaign. If you think the story aspect of the campaign is more important then you should take control of the narrative and fudge rolls. If you see the game aspect as more important than that then you shouldn't fudge. That's the way I see it.
  3. I have multiple baddies with the spell shrivelling which is in the Keeper's rule book. When casting either the basic or deeper version of shrivelling, you have to choose the amount of damage you do and expend that number of magic points. Ideally for the caster, it would deal damage equal to either the major wound or the number of hit points the target has left. As the Keeper, I know both of these figures but I do not think the baddie would. How do I make my NPC's cast this spell without meta gaming?
  4. I would roll in the open in the couple of sessions we had before the lockdown. My players all rolled in the open too and there were no signs of cheating. He does move the camera but it takes time and without seeing the roll, he could have just placed the dice on a low number without rolling. I think you guys are right and I'm going to have to use public rolling software.
  5. I'm a GM running Call of Cthulhu 7e. Because of the pandemic, my group started playing via Zoom. Since some of us have to use our phones and it is easier to roll dice, we do not use a public roller. I thought this would be fine, because I trust my players. Last session, almost one half of one of my players' rolls were extreme successes including all of the important ones. I'm not sure if this means he is cheating but it is certainly suspicious. Maybe he is truthful but has a biased d10. What should I do to prevent cheating in an online session?
  6. Two Headed Serpent Spoilers. For Keepers only. Do Rose Meadham, Dr Goncalves and Tyrannish know the deeper version of the spell shrivelling or just it's basic form? It feels weird to me that Gocalves could kill any other character in the campaign in one hit. Loving the campaign so far btw.
