How does this work in practice? How does the GM avoid looking in advance at rolls? How is the session recorded? How is the post-game review conducted?Eero_Tuovinen said:
I suppose I could do a random encounter check in the open and then another secret check to see if it's really a random encounter [grin]. That would achieve the desirable effect of curtailing the player meta knowledge about whether there's a real encounter here or not.
Or, we could just use random number sheets like real competitive gamers, allowing post-game review of the GM's rolls. No need to roll in the open when the players can check the accounts afterwards.
