I love BitD. Reading through the rules, I was genuinely excited to try them out. The rules seem very consciously designed to reinforce a style of play in some ways.
However, whether someone is completely new to gaming, has played Apocalypse World but not BitD, or somewhere in between, its easy to have a misconception of the rules or overlook some mechanic’s implications for play.
What are some of the things you’d point out to newbies to keep in mind while playing BitD?
The big one I know is that everyone needs to remember that consequences do not always equal damage, even in physical conflicts.
