1. No one ever fails a spot check.

No one ever really fails a spot check in a game. Even if the character fails the DM has pretty much let it out of the bag that there is something there to be seen. Unless the DM just wants to mess with the players and make them paranoid, which is actually part of the DM’s job description so win-win all around.

Instead of starting at the beginning of a game where characters are literally just starting off as seen in Darth’s and Droids and DM of the Rings, I decided that our characters would already be a seasoned team of vets who have already leveled up several times and know their world inside and out… but of course that won’t stop them from debating and rules-lawyering the hell out of it.

Then we get to see what happens when fresh blood is added later on…
