I am just on-boarding into the 2d20 world via the Fallout Beta (which I will not discuss, don’t worry Modiphius), but I do have a general question about the 2d20 system:
Other than Players buying d20s and Complications being postponed, are there other ways for the GM to generate their meta-currency (Doom, Threat, Etc)?
For instance, unused “momentum” (or whatever) when rolling for an NPC test and exceeding the success threshold.
In a quick scan of the quick start rules for the other systems, only Star Trek adventures mentions this as a source of GM meta-currency. Does it vary system to system?
In the example above, this makes sense if the NPC is hostile to the PCs, but what if they are an allied NPC? Does it make narrative sense for their success to add to the building threat and tension stacking up against the PCs? Would it go to the Players’ pool?
