I actually like this. Especially the example.

I like how some social checks can just always be failures. Now you don't have to worry about any static DCs of Diplomacy and the unfair DCs of Intimidate versus something that assuredly wants you dead... then again, they always had that... Rule 0.

'Course---and here comes the tired argument---with that.. this idea can be implemented in 3E.



So I think I will!




...down the road.

Very Happy

I agree. The "failed intimidation" seems to be simply a use of Rule 0. Which is fine. In fact, perhaps if we had a few more examples of using Rule 0 it wouldn't seem so ambiguous.

As is, Rule 0 is as maligned as Hypertime.

What do you mean?! It's perfectly understandishable!

And so is hypertime! As a matter of fact, here's my 51st alternate self right now to explain it!






...Will... you need to upgrade your hypertime server.
