When your group chases a kidnapper and the baby they abducted deep into a swamp AND you need to camp for the night AND the babies hungry AND you're a druid…you shape change into a lactating goat to feed the baby.

As a GM that rarely rolls up my own character, I am always curious about procedures and systems that introduce surprise into my game sessions. I love Powered by the Apocalypse and it's "success with complication" or Burning Wheel's Task and Intent clarification. What I'm looking for is processes that react to PCs and channel that reaction back at the PCs and the general narrative; I want each roll to change the fictional positions. does not do this by default.

New D&D campaign requires space for lots of ideas.

Time for some mint camomile tea and some noodling on my upcoming Eberron campaign.
