Description

Murphy and I gear up for another visit to Monster of the Week by analyzing the Expert Playbook move Preparedness. This move represents the Expert’s vast knowledge and stockpile of gear, trinkets, and artifacts and mechanically lets the player access them when it’s needed most. This move also can completely reroute the narrative if the one item the party desperately needs is in a complicated location, requiring a diversion of their attention. We also talk about how the GM and player can work together to make sure this move is used in the proper spirit of the game.
