That’s where reaction rolls come in. Can also be used as a personality generator with a few tweaks.

I agree! On my screen I have a more elaborate reaction roll table, which I use for just that. 2014-08-21 No Dice has more info. I guess I’d love a little more variety so it’s by no means perfect. But it’s at least better than “yes” or “no”. 🙂

What We Talk About When We Talk About The OSR is a great post that lists all the ways one can understand what “OSR” might possibly mean to the people saying it. Ahhh... all is lost. The words no longer make sense and the tongue is dry as paper.

@Halfjack writes about his worlds being full of reasonable NPCs. I tend to have the same problem, specially later in the campaign, getting out of a rut.


Anyway, that’s why I always read @Halfjack’s blog posts on his system of stakes and risks, like resolution as narrative.
