One Thing: The Devil's Teapot

"The Devil's Teapot" by Chris Coski

One thing I love about this OPD is the thought that Coski put into making this playable across multiple game systems. The author was able to do this by including one simple paragraph that explained the universal terminology associated with the dungeon. I really liked the use of "Roll' as a stand in for whatever check a game master would require specific to their system. I think this saves a lot of space in the long run across the page, and was a very smart choice. I also think that knowing what roll, or what level of damage a hazard poses would be a simple, and almost reflexive affair for a game master.

Get it here.
