Gameplay: Hunting Rules

Hunting Rolls:

The rolls that people will use to hunt. In this server, players hunt using single dice rolls, and then are able to narrate their hunts if they so choose. The dice pools and difficulties are variable, depending on the conditions under which they are hunting and the style of hunting they are choosing.

Botches require a storyteller to narrate.
