Description

Eric Lee and I break down the move Detachable Body Parts from the Constructed playbook in Monster of the Week. We talk about how deceptively simple the mechanics of this move are but how out of hand (or arm, or leg) this can get narratively. We also talk about how a GM can lean into the seemingly limitless power of this move to still create a tense and engaging story.
