Description

Lauren McManamon and I talk about her game Girl Underground as we discuss the move Stand Strong in Your Convictions. At the heart of this game is a sense of empowerment and discovery by The Girl who is striving to turn imposed manners into personal beliefs. Mechanically this move calls on those beliefs to help The Girl overcome challenges she may face and narratively color the action around how the challenge is dealt with. The GM is pretty hands-off with this move, only stepping in to mix things up on a miss.
