Description

Marsie Vellan and I head back into Monsterhearts 2 to check out another pivotal move for any teen monster, Keep Your Cool. Mechanically it’s simple: you try to keep your wits about you in a tense situation and, if you’re cool enough, you could come out the other side with valuable insight about the situation. Narratively this move can drive virtually any scenario, from facing down the school bully to professing your love to someone. The GM gets to weigh in by answer questions, discussing character vulnerability, and issuing hard moves if things go south.
