On deck to play Torchbearer next week. Anyone have good advice or resources for players. I have forgotten just how extra this game is. 😂 Brendan wrote about the first edition, advice for D&D players. What else is out there?

Write instincts that let you heal / repair / cook / whatever in camp without spending a check.

Use your traits to lose a die (and gain a check) on rolls that are either very easy or very hard.

Help is really important, almost every roll is the party gathering its resources. Fear is a brutal condition.

Use Nature.

It will take a couple sessions for stuff to click. Your characters will suffer during those sessions. It's okay.
