QuoteMy players were very very careful exploring the rules. Too much so. They never spent many dice on a single roll. So most rolls were made using 4 to 6 dice in all, and most of those were lost (i.e. no "1"s came up).
QuoteMy players were also very suspicious of "having to do more work" in this system than before. As I found out in after-play discussion, they actually think they'll have to do more GM work (in the form of monologues) and get less entertainment (provided by the GM) - or at least less surprises.
QuoteCharacter generation, however, went very well.
QuoteBoth players said they'd love to play again and venture more dice in future rolls. They remain suspicious of having to do monologues.
QuoteBut if I'm playing The Pool, I expect to be a part of the creation of the story and not just a character exploring what's already been laid out.
Quote from: BankueiYeah, I think the big thing that scares both players and GMs alike is the out and out revolutionary way the Pool just explicitly hands over power to the players without any brakes or safeguards. [...] "Here, be adults with this and have fun!".
