Thanks all! I really appreciate the kind words. And thanks again, @DaveC & @rhysmakesthings, for the feedback earlier in the thread. You were incredibly helpful with making this.@Deliverator – glad to hear it went so well! Sounds like your group came up with a cool story (and Slytherin Pig is now my fave headcannon, thank you). Very pleased that most of the game systems & the pacing worked well.
I definitely understand your skepticism regarding the Quidditch rules, but having run them with 5 different groups in the past ~2 weeks, I can confidently say they work. The only hitch is that people tend to want to roll when they attempt a cool play, rather than when they attempt a goal. Will probably revise to reflect this.
The feedback on the ‘Magic’ Trait is interesting – I’ve never had a group where *everyone* puts their +2 in Magic. In general, I get around the “Magic is rolled too much” problem by calling for different moves (“Okay cool, you can cast Alohamora no problem, but you’re trying to be discreet about it, so give me a roll +Cunning to Hide & Sneak”). Maybe this actually needs to be written in the GM rules?
Definitely appreciate the feedback on samey characters & Favorite Class. I’ll consider what I want to do here. Extra die is definitely a cool idea.Thanks again for running it and for the report & feedback!!
