#RPGaDay2018 – Day 7: How can a GM make the stakes important?

Welcome to Day 7 of #RPGaDay2018. Week 2, day 2 of How… week.

The question for today is: How can a GM make the stakes important?

To me this is the flipside of today’s question. The secret to make stakes important is considering what your players give you to work with.

Here is my video in English for Sunglar’s Musings:

And the video in Spanish for Desde la Fosa:

That’s all for now. I’d love to hear what you think on the subject. See you tomorrow!

Welcome reader, thanks for taking the time to find out just who I am! My name is Roberto, although in the Internet I usually go by the name of Sunglar. Long time pen & paper RPG player, mostly a GM for the better part of that time; some will say that’s because of my love of telling a good story, others because I’m a control freak, but that’s debatable… I was born, raised, and still live in Puerto Rico, an island in the Caribbean, with a small but active gaming community.

I’ve played RPGs for 30 years, and for most of that time I played D&D in all its various permutations, including Pathfinder and I'm currently playing D&D 5th edition. Other games my regular gaming group has played over the last few years include Mutants & Masterminds and Savage Worlds, but I have played many other games through the years, and plan to play many more. I am a compulsive homebrewer and rarely play a campaign I have not created myself.

You can follow me on Twitter as @Sunglar, and find me in Google+ also as Sunglar. I'm very active in Facebook where you can find me posting regularly in the Puerto Rico Role Players group. Looking forward to hearing from you!
