Act Under Pressure
Rev Deschain and I check out the move Act Under Pressure from Monster of the Week. This seemingly generic move is used whenever there is risk or doubt about the success of an action and offers a wide assortment of both mechanical and narrative outcomes. We talk about how Rev uses this move to cover the success and failure of multiple moves into one roll and how he provides several narrative options for his players to choose from. As the GM, Rev thinks the more options the better, and puts the power back in the players’ hands.
